Nikon D3100 Operation

Like the existing D3000 model, the Nikon D3100 is aimed at beginner and casual shooters, rather than professionals and hard-core SLR enthusiasts. It’s thus no surprise that the D3100 inherits an interface which is very similar to that of the D3000, with an uncluttered layout that places most controls in the same positions as in the earlier camera. There are a few differences, though, made to accommodate new features, bring existing ones out of the menu system, and reduce complexity. Perhaps the most visible change is a new Release Mode Selector lever, located at the base of the Mode dial on the top deck. Moving to the rear panel, Nikon has added a new Live View switch with central Movie Record button, providing a home for two important features that the D3000 lacked. Finally, the Information Edit button is now dedicated to its purpose, sitting adjacent to the Playback Zoom In button with which it previously served double duty.

Overall, the Nikon D3100’s design keeps the number of buttons, knobs and dials to a minimum. It replaces the top-panel data display traditionally found on more complex SLRs with a very attractive and logically laid-out information display on the large, rear-panel LCD screen. The mode dial is easily accessed with your thumb while you’re holding the grip, and sports a Guide mode aimed at making the camera even less intimidating to those who don’t yet understand the technical details of things like apertures, shutter speeds, and ISO sensitivities. The Guide menu not only helps beginners set the camera up to achieve the effects they desire, but also explains what settings changes have been made and why, providing a valuable learning opportunity. Experienced shooters may seldom if ever touch the Guide menu, but it could prove a lifesaver for less-experienced photographers, allowing the user manual to stay at home.

Nikon D3100 Shooting Mode

As with Nikon’s other recent consumer digital SLRs, the Nikon D3100 displays shooting info and settings on the main LCD when the Info button is pressed in record mode. There are two shooting display styles: the Graphic display which helps the user to visualize what’s happening with shutter speed and lens aperture, and the more conventional looking Classic format (see right), which displays the same basic settings information, but uses larger fonts and icons. I personally like the Graphic format a lot, but can see a time coming when my eyes will prefer the larger type of the Classic display. Unlike the D3100, you can’t choose different display formats for different camera operating modes. Instead, it’s a one-size-fits-all affair, with all exposure modes except Guide sharing the same display type. You can still change the color of the displays, though, with choices of green, black, or brown for the Graphic display, and blue, black, or orange for the Classic mode (as shown at right).

The Nikon D3100 will also rotate the display 90 or 270 degrees when shooting in a vertical orientation.

There’s a lot of information shown there, but a logical layout and the large/sharp LCD screen makes it easy to tell what you’re looking at. The column of data down the right side of the screen and the row across the bottom of the screen represent settings you can adjust directly from this screen.

As mentioned above, settings can be adjusted right in the shooting display by pressing the «i» button. The cursor keys can then be used to navigate to the setting you wish to change. The OK button is used to select the setting, and a new value or option is selected using the Up/Down cursor keys. For features that have a dedicated button (such as exposure compensation, shutter speed, etc.), the button is pressed and/or the command dial is used to change the value or option. The animation on the right shows the top-level contents of each item in the information display. As part of the Nikon D3100’s designed-in user-friendliness, most options on the shooting menu include «assist» images, to help you understand the types of shots or conditions for which each setting is most appropriate.

 

Nikon D3100 Playback Mode

Playback mode is entered by pressing the Playback button. The Nikon D3100’s Playback mode provides a great deal of information about your pictures after you’ve shot them. You can cycle through a variety of Playback displays using the up/down arrows on the multi-selector, including the image alongside either file information, basic shooting data and a luminance histogram, or an RGB histogram (if enabled in the display mode menu). Four further displays include the image with either three screens of overlaid shooting info and image parameter information, or the image with a blinking indication of clipped highlights. To reduce the number of button presses to get to your desired screen type, the highlights, RGB histogram, and info displays can be disabled in the display mode menu if you don’t use them Perhaps more unusually, the D3100 offers two slideshow-like transition effects, applicable not to the slide show function itself, but to when you switch between individual images or movies in the standard «image with file info» display type. It’s very much a consumer-oriented feature, but doesn’t slow the camera down as much as you might think, given that you can interrupt the transition effect to continue switching between images and movies.

The Nikon D3100’s histogram display modes are very useful tools. Regarded as almost mandatory by many pros for evaluating exposure levels, histogram displays are de rigeur on professional digital cameras, and common even in many amateur models these days. A histogram is simply a graph of how many pixels there are in the image at each brightness level. The brightness is the horizontal axis, running from black at the left to white at the right. The height of the graph shows the relative number of pixels having each brightness level. This sort of display is very handy for determining under- or overexposure. An underexposed image will have a histogram with all the data lumped on the left-hand side, with nothing reaching all the way to the right. Likewise, an overexposed image will have all the data lumped on the right side. The one defect of a luminance histogram is that it might not be obvious that there’s clipping if it is restricted to only one of the three color channels. The inclusion of an RGB histogram function hence allows the photographer to confirm that each individual color channel is correctly exposed, with no clipped values.

Of course the Nikon D3100 also lets you zoom out to quickly find and select images, or magnify them for closer inspection on its 3.0-inch LCD. There is a calendar view as well as the normal 4-, 9-, or 72-image thumbnail displays available by pressing the thumbnail/zoom-out button, and you can magnify images up to approximately 27x for large, 20x for medium, and 14x for small images, using the zoom-in button. Once magnified, you can scroll around the image using the multi-selector to examine critical detail and framing, and you can view other images at the same zoom ratio using the command dial. The Nikon D3100 can detect up to 35 faces while in Playback mode. The camera highlights them with a white frame, and you can cycle through them at the current zoom ratio by holding the Info Display button while pressing the left or right arrow buttons, and zoom in or out on faces by holding Info Display and pressing the up or down arrow buttons. This makes focus verification of faces faster and more convenient.

To return the Nikon D3100 to shooting mode, simply press the Playback button again, or half-press the shutter button.

Dell D3100 Docking Station — Full Review and Benchmarks

Skip to main content

Laptop Mag Verdict

The Dell D3100 Docking Station is an affordable dock that supports three displays (one at 4K resolution) and has lots of port options.

TODAY’S BEST DEALS

Cons
  • No USB Type-C support

  • Some performance hiccups when using three displays

If you have a 4K monitor and want to use additional FHD displays alongside it, the Dell D3100 provides an affordable way to connect those two or three monitors to your laptop. The $109 dock also includes five different USB ports for attaching peripherals, along with an Ethernet connector and audio jack. Users who want to connect over USB Type-C will need to buy a dongle, but otherwise, the D3100 is an inexpensive and compelling option that will work with most of today’s computers.

Design

The D3100 Docking Station is a matte-black plastic box that sits horizontally on your desk and looks just like other Dell docks, including the WD15. This one is particularly small, at 6.5 x 2.98 x 1.1 inches (the WD15 was deeper, at 6.1 x 4.3 x 0.83). The Plugable UD-3900 has a tiny base but stands 7. 5 inches tall.

Dell’s logo adorns the top of the dock in reflective black plastic, and the DisplayLink logo can be found on the front next to some USB ports. The bottom is covered with some nonslip rubber that will keep it in place under your monitor or behind your laptop. Unlike the

WD15, the D3100’s power adapter is small — similar to what comes with your laptop — and easy to put out of the way.

  • Dell D3100 (Black) at Amazon for £158.06

Ports

The D3100 makes great use of space and is filled to the brim with ports. The front of the dock boasts three USB 3.0 inputs — one more than both the WD15 and UD-3900 — and a headphone and mic combo jack. The back is where you’ll find two USB 2.0 ports, the input for the power adapter, two HDMI ports and a DisplayPort for external displays, an Ethernet jack, a USB-B port for the cable that connects to laptops, and a jack for audio out.

If your monitor doesn’t support HDMI, the D3100 comes with one HDMI-to-DVI adapter so you can connect that way. The dock doesn’t support USB Type-C officially, but I managed to get it to work with the 2016 12-inch MacBook by adding a USB-A-to-USB-C adapter (sold separately).

Performance

The Dell D3100 was easy to set up and worked consistently. After I installed DisplayLink drivers, it simply worked. It’s a nice departure from the WD15, which ditched DisplayLink in favor of USB Type-C’s alternate mode. I connected a $499 Dell Inspiron 17 5000 (Core i3-5010U processor, 4GB of RAM and 500GB HDD) to the dock for testing. It isn’t a powerhouse, but the average consumer may purchase it, especially at that bargain price.

The first test involved hooking up one monitor to the dock over DisplayPort, which output in beautiful, detailed 4K. Sample video featuring scenes of nature, a speeding car and trains moving in slow motion was clear and didn’t stutter at all, and there was barely a dent in CPU usage.

Next, I hooked up a second 4K display over HDMI — that one maxed out at 2560 x 1440, while the DisplayLink-connected monitor still output at 4K. (Only the DisplayLink port will drive monitors at 4K. HDMI will not.) The sample video continued to play smoothly while I used the second monitor to browse the web and typed in OpenOffice Writer on the laptop’s display. The task manager suggested that using two monitors took up 3 to 4 percent of CPU resources.

With three monitors plugged in, the HDMI-connected screens dropped to 2048 x 1152 with the DisplayPort monitor running at full 4K (all in addition to the screen built into the Inspiron). It was an insane setup, and I put it all to use, running the sample video on the 4K display, using TweetDeck on another, browsing the web on the third and using OpenOffice on the actual laptop. While the video played without any issues, I noticed some intermittent performance hiccups in Google Chrome and OpenOffice when typing and scrolling. With all three displays connected, the dock consumed 2 to 7 percent of CPU resources.

The D3100 docking station doesn’t support USB Type-C, but I used a USB-A to USB Type-C adapter to get it to work with the latest 12-inch MacBook, which powered all three displays with the dock. It overpowered the CPU, though, and a mix of 4K video and web browsing slowed down some animations at the operating system level, like opening and minimizing apps from the dock. If you use a USB Type-C adapter, it won’t charge the laptop, so be sure to keep your power brick at the ready.

Bottom Line

The Dell D3100 Docking Station is an affordable option that supports a 4K display as well as two other monitors to go along with it. The design is unobtrusive, and the extra USB 3.0 port is a plus. It doesn’t support USB Type-C, though, so you’ll need to go elsewhere (like Plugable’s upcoming USB-C Triple Display Dock) for full future-proofing.

A price of $109 is a great deal for three displays, though lower-end laptops may see a few hiccups here and there. If you don’t need 4K at all or just want to spend a little bit less money, you should check out Plugable’s UD-3900 for $95, but that only supports two screens. Power users will want to check out the D3100 and its triple-monitor support.

Nikon D3100 Memory Card Recommendations

Looking for SD cards that work well in the Nikon D3100 DSLR? Here are some practical recommendations to try to make sense of the confusing world of SD cards.

The Nikon D3100 is an entry-level camera in Nikon’s DSLR lineup. It has a cropped APS-C sensor in Nikon’s DX range.

It’s several generations back now, and by the standards of the newer models, it’s not especially demanding of the memory card. That makes it easy to find an SD card that will work well in the D3100.

But buying SD cards can be confusing. There’s a bunch of different specs and jargon and even types. And there’s no point overpaying for a card that’s fancier than you need. So here are some practical recommendations on which SD cards to get for the Nikon D3100 DSLR so you can get out shooting.

Nikon D3100 Memory Card – Quick Recommendations

Here are some quick recommendations for good memory cards for the Nikon D3100. These offer a good mix of speed, reliability, cost-effectiveness, and broad availability. Any of these makes for a good choice for the D3100.

  1. SanDisk Ultra
  2. Lexar Professional 633x
  3. Kingston Canvas Select Plus

SanDisk Ultra U1 UHS-I

  • Fast for better pictures and Full HD video(2) | (2)Full HD (1920×1080) video support may vary based upon. ..
  • Great choice for compact to mid-range point-and-shoot cameras

Lexar Professional 633x V30 UHS-I

  • High-speed, Class 10 performance leverages UHS-I (U1 or U3 depends on capacity) technology for a read…
  • Capture high quality images of stunning 1080p full-HD, 3D, and 4K video

Kingston Canvas Select Plus V30 UHS-I

  • Faster speeds — Class 10 UHS-I speeds up to 100MB/s.
  • Capture in full HD & 4K UHD video (1080P) — the advanced UHS-I interface makes the card ideal for…

Nikon D3100 Memory Card Requirements

Nikon issues its own guidelines for officially approved memory cards for the Nikon D3100, but it’s pretty hard to make sense of. They’re buried on page 177 in the technical notes section of the Nikon D3100 instruction manual. They look like this.

There’s then a note: “Other cards have not been tested. For more details on the above cards, please contact the manufacturer.

I don’t find that especially helpful. So I’ve taken those official recommendations from Nikon and translated them into practical recommendations below that cut through all the confusing jargon that memory card manufacturers use in their marketing.

In general, the Nikon D3100 will accept SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards. All of those types look exactly the same–the difference is in the amount of memory. SD refers to cards up to 2GB in size. Now that memory card prices have come down and you can buy very good 32GB cards for $15, there’s no good reason to be buying a 2GB card if your camera supports larger ones. So I’d recommend sticking with SDHC or SDXC for the Nikon D3100. SDHC refers to cards that are 4GB up through 32GB. SDXC refers to cards that are 64GB or above.

If you’re doing video recording, you’ll need a card that’s designated as class 6 or higher. The reason is that when recording video the camera needs to write a lot of data to the card quickly. If your card isn’t able to write data fast enough, the video recording will stop. The current crop of memory cards are all class 10, so you’re better off going with one of them than searching around for an old class 6 card.

So here’s a mix of recommended memory cards that will work well in the Nikon D3100 and that are reasonably priced, readily available, and good value. This list isn’t exhaustive, and there are both faster and slower SD cards that will also work, as well as smaller and larger ones. Because of the similarities between the two cameras, these are essentially the same memory card recommendations for the Nikon D5300 as well.

Recommended Memory Cards for the Nikon D3100 – In Detail

These aren’t necessarily the fastest SD cards on the market, but they’re fast enough for this camera. It’s also not designed to be a comprehensive list of every SD card that will work.

My emphasis here is on cards that meet these criteria: fast enough for all the features of this camera; from a reputable and reliable brand; readily available at retailers; and good value for money. If you want to use a faster, fancier card you can, but you won’t see any extra benefit in doing so while you’re operating the camera (but you might see some faster speeds when downloading the photos to a computer, depending on your computer and memory card reader combination).

SanDisk Ultra U1 UHS-I

SanDisk Ultra U1 UHS-I

  • Fast for better pictures and Full HD video(2) | (2)Full HD (1920×1080) video support may vary based upon…
  • Great choice for compact to mid-range point-and-shoot cameras

The SanDisk Ultra line is their cost-effective mid-range option. The latest versions of the Ultra cards are much faster than older versions, and it’s a good basic option for cameras that don’t demand too much of their SD card. The next level up—the Extreme cards—are also a good option, but the Ultra cards are often priced slightly lower. They’re usually very easy to find in stores, too.

SanDisk recycles its model names, and you can still find older, slower versions. This latest version of the Ultra card is rated for U1 for video recording and uses a UHS-I interface.

It comes in sizes ranging from 32GB through 256GB.

Lexar 633x V30 UHS-I

Lexar 633x V30 UHS-I

  • High-speed, Class 10 performance leverages UHS-I (U1 or U3 depends on capacity) technology for a read…
  • Capture high quality images of stunning 1080p full-HD, 3D, and 4K video

The Lexar 633x range has been one of the mainstays of Lexar’s SD cards for a while now. There are now faster cards available, but this one is again fast enough for this camera while also representing good value for money.

One distinctive thing about this range is that they’re available from 32GB up through `TB.

Buy at: Amazon.

Kingston Canvas Select Plus V30 UHS-I

Kingston Canvas Select Plus V30 UHS-I

  • Faster speeds — Class 10 UHS-I speeds up to 100MB/s.
  • Capture in full HD & 4K UHD video (1080P) — the advanced UHS-I interface makes the card ideal for…

Kingston is a brand that isn’t as well known as some of the others, but they’ve been making reliable memory cards for a very long time. As a brand, they don’t tend to focus on the cutting edge speeds but rather on reliable and good-value memory cards.

This particular card (model SDS2 Canvas Select Plus) isn’t the fastest in Kingston’s range, but it’s fast enough to work well in this camera. It’s available in sizes from 16GB through 128GB.

Buy at: B&H Photo or Amazon.

PNY Elite-X V30 UHS-I

PNY Elite-X V30 UHS-I

  • Class 10 U3 V30 speed rating with read speeds up to 100MB/s
  • Class 10 U3 V30 rating delivers speed and performance for burst mode HD photography and 4K Ultra HD…

PNY is another brand that isn’t as well known as some others, but they’ve been around a long time and make very good memory cards that are usually very competitively priced and good value.

This particular model is available in sizes ranging from 64GB to 512GB.

Buy at: Amazon

Delkin Devices Advantage V30 UHS-I

Delkin Devices Advantage V30 UHS-I

  • Supports 4K & Full HD 1080p Video Recording at High Frame Rates
  • RAW Continuous-Shooting Approved

Delkin Devices have been around for a long time but have been relatively quiet in recent years. But they’ve refreshed their entire lineup of cards recently to simplify the range and bring the cards up to current specs.

The Advantage card is rated to V30 and has a UHS-I interface. It currently comes in sizes up to 512GB.

Buy at: B&H Photo or Amazon.

Other Brands

There are also a lot of smaller, mostly unknown brands. In general, I’d recommend sticking to a brand you know and trust or one of the brands I’ve mentioned on this page because they have well-established reputations for putting out high-quality cards. Some of the other lesser-known brands might work, but they also might not be all they claim to be. The ones above should give a good selection of ones you can find fairly easily at retailers near you.

Faster SD Cards

If you’re looking to use a faster card, take a look at the ones that I’ve subjected to my independent SD card speed tests.

Introduction

I had a problem with my autofocus, and i could not find the answer. Therefore i investigated further and found out what to do. This i have wrote in this guide.

  • Compressed Air

    You can also use a dry plastic bottle to blow air.

    No parts specified.

      • The problem is that the autofocus can not adjust correctly. There can be more than one solution.

      • 1. Try forcing the lens to rotate a fraction of a inch. This will sometimes help the problem. Or simply move the switch from M to A on the lens.

      • 2. Try to switching to a single of the 11 auto focus points. Then try if there are specific points that are the problem.

      • This is done by selecting in the menu of your camera to the points. Then focusing on a single object with a background far away. Try focusing on the object then on the background. If this is possible the autofocus point is fine.

      • 3. If all auto focus points are fine, try updating the firmware or cleaning the sensors inside the camera behind the mirror. If a one or more points are out of order, also try cleaning the sensors behind the mirror.

      • 4. Detatch the lens from the camera, by applying pressure on the release button and twisting the lens so it can be released. See picture

      • 5. Set the camera selection wheel to manual (M), see picture

      • 6. Turn the camera on, and start the liveView format. This will flip op the mirror inside the camera.

      Edit

      • Take a dry can blower. Or if in lack, use an empty plastic bottle, without moisture inside, and use it to blow on the autofocus sensors.

      • They are located at the bottom under the mirror. NOTE Do not blow with your mouth, small amount of moisture will hit the CCD also located here.

      • Turn the camera off

      • Reattach the lens. Push the lens, white point to white point and turn the lens in place.

      • This worked for me, hope it also helped you 😉

      Edit

    Almost done!

    Optics

    1.sensor size

    One of the most important aspects of a camera is the size of its sensor. A larger sensor will capture more light, which results in improved low-light performance, dynamic range, and general image quality.

    2.focus points

    The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

    3.megapixels (main camera)

    14.8MP

    16.9MP

    The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.

    4.maximum light sensitivity

    Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Nikon D3100)

    Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Nikon D5100)

    With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.

    5.has sensor shift stabilization

    ✖Nikon D3100

    ✖Nikon D5100

    With sensor shift, the image sensor (rather than the lens) moves to counterbalance any vibration of the camera. This means the image will be stabilised regardless of what lens is being used.

    6.continuous shooting at high resolution

    Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

    7.has AF tracking

    ✔Nikon D3100

    ✔Nikon D5100

    With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.

    8.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos

    ✔Nikon D3100

    ✔Nikon D5100

    Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.

    9.fastest shutter speed

    1/4000s

    1/4000s

    A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

    Videography

    1.video recording (main camera)

    1080 x 24fps

    1080 x 30fps

    The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.

    2.Has phase-detection autofocus for videos

    ✔Nikon D3100

    ✔Nikon D5100

    A phase-detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.

    3.has continuous autofocus when recording movies

    ✔Nikon D3100

    ✔Nikon D5100

    When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.

    4.has a microphone input

    ✖Nikon D3100

    ✔Nikon D5100

    A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.

    5.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack

    ✖Nikon D3100

    ✖Nikon D5100

    With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.

    6. has a stereo microphone

    ✖Nikon D3100

    ✖Nikon D5100

    A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.

    7.Has timelapse function

    ✖Nikon D3100

    ✔Nikon D5100

    A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.

    8.movie bitrate

    Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Nikon D3100)

    Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Nikon D5100)

    The higher the movie recording bitrate the better the movie quality with more and crispier details and less compression artifacts.

    9.number of microphones

    More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

    Battery

    1.Battery life (CIPA)

    550shots

    660shots

    CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

    2.has a removable battery

    ✔Nikon D3100

    ✔Nikon D5100

    The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.

    3.has a rechargeable battery

    ✔Nikon D3100

    ✔Nikon D5100

    The battery can be recharged and used over again.

    4.has a battery level indicator

    ✔Nikon D3100

    ✔Nikon D5100

    An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.

    5.battery power

    1000mAh

    1030mAh

    Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.

    2. focus points

    The more focus points, the more flexibility in choosing which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the sensor more power to determine the best part to focus on in more automatic modes.

    3MP (main camera)

    14.8MP

    12.3MP

    The number of megapixels determines the resolution of images captured by the main camera. A higher megapixel count means the camera is capable of capturing more detail. However, the number of megapixels is not the only important element that determines image quality.

    4. maximum light sensitivity

    Unknown. Help us offer a price. (Nikon D3100)

    Unknown. Help us offer a price. (Nikon D5000)

    Higher light sensitivity (ISO level) allows the sensor to absorb more light. This can be used to shoot moving subjects at high shutter speeds, or to take pictures in poor lighting conditions without using the flash.

    5. Sensor-shift stabilized

    ✖Nikon D3100

    ✖Nikon D5000

    With sensor shift, the sensor itself (not the lens) moves itself so that it can cancel out any camera vibration. This means that the image will be stabilized no matter which lens is used.

    6.High-resolution continuous shooting

    High-speed continuous shooting is useful when shooting moving subjects.

    7. AF Tracking

    ✔Nikon D3100

    ✔Nikon D5000

    Tracking AF will correctly focus on the subject, press the shutter button, if the subject moves, the AF will follow it. Subjects will always be in focus.

    8.Autofocused with phase detection autofocus for photography

    ✔Nikon D3100

    ✔Nikon D5000

    Phase detection AF is much faster than contrast detection and produces sharper images.

    9.fastest shutter speed

    1/4000s

    1/4000s

    A fast maximum shutter speed allows you to shoot fast-moving subjects without blurring them.

    Video Recording

    1.Video Recording (Main Camera)

    1080 x 24fps

    720 x 24fps

    The maximum resolution possible for videos shot with the main camera. You can also select other frame rates, these videos usually have lower resolutions.

    2.Autofocus in movie mode thanks to PDAF

    ✔Nikon D3100

    ✔Nikon D5000

    The phase detection AF system is faster than the contrast AF system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movement, videos are crisp and clear.

    3. Continuous autofocus for movie recording

    ✔Nikon D3100

    ✔Nikon D5000

    Subjects always stay in focus when recording movies.

    4.with microphone jack

    7. Equipped with interval shooting function

    ✖Nikon D3100

    ✔Nikon D5000

    Interval shooting shows the long passage of time in acceleration. A series of photos taken from the same position over a long period is combined to create a short video. This is a great way to capture moments like sunset or clouds moving across the sky.

    8. movie bitrate

    Unknown. Help us offer a price. (Nikon D3100)

    Unknown. Help us offer a price. (Nikon D5000)

    The higher the video bit rate, the better the quality of the movie with sharper details and much less image distortion from compression.

    9.number of microphones

    The more microphones your device has, the better it filters out background noise and improves the overall sound quality.

    Battery

    1. Battery life (CIPA)

    Nikon d3100 setting. How to set up the camera

    Nikon d3100 setup

    How to set up the Nikon d3100 camera?
    Nikon d3100 user manual in Russian read

    How to properly set up the Nikon d3100 camera?

    Shooting modes of the are switched by turning the dial on the top of the machine. As with any SLR camera, there is a group of PASM modes.

    Programmer P: Camera automatically selects shutter speed and aperture for optimum exposure.
    Aperture priority A; you set the aperture, the camera determines the shutter speed.
    Shutter priority S: you set the shutter speed, the camera selects the aperture.
    Manual mode M: Here you choose both shutter speed and aperture.

    In PASM modes, you cannot entrust ISO setting to camera automation — you must set a specific ISO value, the Auto-ISO option is available only in «simplified» modes.

    The green camera icon labeled AUTO on the mode dial indicates automatic, “one-button”, Auto mode. Here, almost all parameters are determined by the camera in accordance with the current situation. The flash pops up and fires automatically if the subject is poorly lit. The set of available options in this mode is limited.

    A great convenience, especially for beginners, is provided by story programs. There are seven of them in the Nikon D3100, and all are placed in separate positions on the mode dial: Portrait, Landscape, Child, Sports, Macro, Night portrait and No flash. The SCENE position, which gives access to an additional set of scene programs, is not on the mode dial. Instead, there is a GUIDE mode.

    GUIDE mode is a built-in help system with control functions (in of the D3000 the GUIDE name was poorly translated: «Help Menu», now the translation is better: «Help Mode»).

    Nikon d3100 setup.

    In GUIDE mode, the novice user, as it were, answers questions about what exactly he is going to shoot and under what conditions. Selecting options, he makes his way through the menu tree, while the camera switches the corresponding parameters. Within the menu, there is a choice between «Easy operation» and «Advanced functions». In the second case, the content deals with slightly more creative moments, giving tips on blurring the background and freezing motion (that is, on using aperture and shutter speed settings).

    In the end, if you go through all the branches and get to the “Start Shooting” item, the camera switches to shooting — you can take pictures, but you formally remain in GUIDE mode and many parameters are not available, as when using scene programs.

    The same principles are used in GUIDE mode when working with photo playback and camera settings. Of course, in terms of functionality, the GUIDE mode does not provide anything new in essence — it’s just that access to all functions and settings is organized through a system of hints and explanations.

    Well, if a novice photographer does not just use the D3100 as a one-button soap dish (although if you wish, you can work like that, on full automatic), but tries to understand the essence of various settings, the GUIDE mode will help him take the first step in this direction. Of course, it will not become a universal textbook — the volume is still small, the simplest, basic points are considered, which are the necessary minimum for a creative approach to photography — necessary, but by no means sufficient.

    Fine-tuning the Nikon D3100 camera.

    Live view and movie shooting are new modes for the Nikon D3100 compared to the D3000. These modes are linked, in the sense that you first need to turn on the live view mode, and only from it you can start shooting video (and not immediately by pressing the red dot button, as in many models).

    The implementation of the live view mode is very advanced.
    There are four types of autofocus operation — Face Priority (see illustration on the left, yellow frame on the face), Wide Area, Normal Area and Subject Tracking (green frame in the illustrations — it turns red if the subject is lost).
    Switching between these options is not the most efficient, through the menu.

    Use the (–) and (+) buttons to zoom in on the area where autofocus has been triggered.

    Pressing the «i» button displays the normal control panel where you can change shooting settings without leaving Live View mode.

    Pressing the red dot button starts movie recording.
    Autofocus works in the mode set in the menu (see above).
    It’s especially cool that you can quickly control the exposure parameters — you can switch modes by rotating the mode dial; by selecting modes A or S, you can use the wheel to change the aperture value or shutter speed.
    The exposure compensation button also works — all these settings can be changed without interrupting the video recording.

    [ads-pc-1]

    In playback mode, the OK button starts the video playback.
    The top of the screen displays the current and full time. Use the (–) and (+) buttons to adjust the sound volume.
    Navigator keys turn into a «tape drive» control, allowing you to fast forward and backward the video, pause playback, and move forward and backward frame by frame in pause mode.

    There is a video editor.
    Its capabilities, as almost always in video editors built into cameras, are minimal — you can cut off the excess, as well as save a single frame, selected and stopped in pause mode.
