Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikon D3100 Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens Kit (14.2MP) 3 inch LCD (Electronics)
It is very early days for this camera. The weather has been awful and I haven't been tempted out to give the camera a good test. It is very well built, and feels solid, but it doesn't seem to be quite the step up from my previous bridge camera that I hoped. That was a Panasonic FZ38 - it was compact, had an excellent lens, and good zoom. Sadly, it was lost or stolen, otherwise I would not have bought a new camera.
My guess is that the D3100 is actually very good, but it has made me realise just how far bridge cameras have come. For me, the jury is still out, although the verdict is more to do with DSLR than it is with the Nikon.
