The Nikon D3100 is a 14.2 Megapixel DSLR camera with high sensitivity CMOS sensor, Live View, Full HD Movies and helpful Guide Mode.
14 Megapixel CMOS Sensor
The CMOS sensor housed within the Nikon D3100 has 14.2 effective megapixels for outstandingly sharp images. The high sensitivity of the sensor means that up to ISO 3200 values are within the normal range and can even be extended to ISO 12,800 in HI 2 Mode. The EXPEED 2 Engine keeps noise to a minimum and allows for fast response times.
The improved Guide Mode on the D3100 is full of helpful navigational tools and graphic illustrations of camera settings known as “Assist Images” – for example showing the effect of wider apertures on depth of field and overall sharpness.
Full HD D-Movie
Record full 1080 HD movies with the D3100 with the option also to record in standard definition. The AF-F (Full Time Servo AF) enables continuous focusing in Live View while recording movies. This removes the need to keep the shutter release half pressed to allow the camera to focus. Movie editing is also possible on-camera.
