Product details

A worthy successor to the already popular Nikon D3000, this body-only offering of the Nikon D3100 Digital SLR Camera delivers an amazing performance with feature-rich specification.

Take a leap into professional quality photography

This 14.2 mp camera combines Nikon's latest EXPEED 2 image processing with a newly developed DX-format CMOS sensor for astounding picture quality and a responsive camera performance.

An ideal choice of DSLR for beginners, the Nikon D3100 Digital SLR Camera sports a number of user-friendly functions for the less experienced shooter. Amongst these is a Guide Mode that teaches you all about camera functions and technique in-camera, so you don't have to refer back to the manual.

Explore your skills with complete creative control

The D3100 also boasts a Scene Recognition System that automatically assesses your subject matter and optimises camera settings accordingly. Other shooting options include a range of six selectable scene modes, and more traditional dial modes such as aperture priority, shutter priority, program, and fully manual.

Regardless of your level of experience, you can express yourself with the Nikon D3100 Digital SLR Camera!

The groundbreaking Nikon D3100 is also the first of Nikon's DSLR cameras to offer Full HD video capture! You'll be able to produce wonderful detail-packed movies, and then output them directly to a High Definition TV through the camera's integrated HDMI interface.

Extra memory cards are essential

It is important to have the right memory card for your camera. The memory card will determine how fast an image is saved and how fast an image is uploaded.

If you're shooting high definition videos along with high resolution images then it's best to invest in a high performance memory card. A high performance memory card will get the best out of your photography, ensuring the best continuous shooting speed and high quality data capture.

What's more, we range a variety of camera cases that will protect and help keep your gear organised on photography journeys.

What's more, a two year guarantee is offered to give you peace of mind.

Whether you're a beginner looking for a starter-friendly camera, or a more experienced photographer simply looking for an attractively priced DSLR, you're sure to be delighted with the incredibly versatile Nikon D3100 Digital SLR Camera!
