  • A. Of course it is. I’m taking pictures on the highest quality without NEF and it takes over 1500 pictures to drain the battery. Reasonable amount of it have taken with the built in flash. Stills and also HD video which is “only” limited to 10 minutes at the time but that makes no difference since that does not affect how many times you take that 10 minutes.

Perfect Portrait Camera

I bought this camera as a new addition to my Portrait Photography business. This takes much better pictures than my previous camera!!! I love this camera and use it constantly! The battery life is very good...about 600 shots before it dies. Pictures are clear and crisp. I would recommend to anyone. The only MAJOR flaw on this camera is with the video. Two things... make sure you have a modern computer, not anything older than 2 years or else it can't handle the viewing capability. I have to upload directly to youtube to see the video in good quality. Not lagging. And second...BIG thing here... when you auto focus with the video recording. it makes some pretty loud noise. I recommend shooting video in Manual focus mode.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I originally purchased the sony nex3 from another store and after trying it for almost 2 weeks under different light conditions I was convinced I was not getting the quality I expected from a camera well over $400 so I returned it and did some research, fortunately the D3100 came to my attention after seeing some sample pictures and reviews. After trying it for over a week and have compared the pictures against the ones taken with my previous purchase and some others taken with my lumix point & shot I can really tell that the quality of the pictures I am getting is pretty good, I am not an experienced photographer, just a regular person who wants to keep memories on nice crisp pictures. I love the quality under low light or no light {which is hard to get} and with a decent amount of light the automatic focus does a great job, I would say that I love over 90% of the pictures I have taken which is a lot. I am still learning how to use the camera as it has lots of functions and options but I am quite happy with the purchase and the value for the money. It is not a cheap camera but it’s worth it. The automatic mode function does all the job perfectly fine. The battery life is just fine for my needs. Would recommend to any person wanting great pictures. The small lens that comes with the camera does not have a very powerful zoom but it is decent, so invest on the additional lens that is also offered by walmart, I wish I had done it as it was only $50 extra, did not think about it, next time...

I've had this camera for almost a year. I love it. Its definitely a beginner camera. I would use this camera when I would shoot sports at my school. I bought this camera myself, at being only 14. I have shot many photo shoots with it and it still produces great quality photos. I love the pictures it takes at night to. It really turns out awesome. I also went to a museum of butterfly's and took an awesome close up of one Everyone that has seen my Nikon D3100 has told me that they want to save up for one now to! I would definitely recommend to EVERYONE!!

I love it. It takes amazing pictures and the auto modes make it easy to use while the manual modes are helping me meet the challenge of taking my self taught photography to the next level. I loved my Nikon Coolpix 500 and this is not much more expensive but does sooooo much more. I have now gone from a compact, the the Nikon Coolpix 500 and now this. I have also used a Sony and a Cannon comparable to my 2nd Nikon, and I personally just wasn't as impressed with them as I have been with the Nikons.

My niece is a photographer and she suggested I get my fiance a Nickon D3000. I searched the Walmart sight and noticed that the D3100 had more featchers and megapixels. It was at such an affordable price I decided to buy the the D3100. My fiance was thrilled! I knew I had bought the right camera when we were in Jamaica, a woman freaked out when she saw his camera. She said she did all kinds of research and this was her dream camera. It does A LOT, so be prepared to spend some time learning everything this camera can do and the great pictures!

its almost been a month since i bought this camera and i love it. took great, clear photos with it from the beginning. easier to use than some other dlsr i have used. you just have to know your setting on the camera to get the right photo you want. the thing i hate is the auto focus, which can be turned off, and sometimes blurry pictures. i also hate the flash. you have to always turn it off on the menu if you're in another setting other than the off flash. i hate going back every time i open and close my camera. i mostly take macro shots with the standard lens and don't need an expensive lens.
