Nikon Coolpix 3100

 

While the product images of the Nikon Coolpix 3100 make it out to be larger than most 3 mega pixel digital cameras on the market, in the hand it is very small and compact.

Charger included

Slightly expensive on introduction

Overall this camera is a good starter in the realms of digital imaging. It is more expensive that the other entry level cameras from Olympus, Kodak and Sony to mention a few, however you do get a charger included in the box, a hassle saved from the...

Nikon Coolpix 3100 Review

 

Nikon introduced the Coolpix 3100 (three megapixel) and Coolpix 2100 (two megapixel) digital cameras. Although both models are based around the same body, operation and control setup there are some subtle differences. They have different lenses,...

Lens soft near corners / edges at maximum aperture No AF Assist lamp (although still a good performance without it) Sometimes slow AF in low light Over saturation of magenta Halo sharpening artifacts visible around black detail Poor night exposure...

Here's my rating of the Nikon Coolpix 3100: (3 megapixel compact)

Nikon Coolpix 3100 review

 

Nikon Coolpix 3100

Relatively bulky body; short, silent, fixed-duration videos.

This is a good but not outstanding 3-megapixel compact camera with a great point-and-shoot feature set.
