The Nikon D3100 is a 14.2-megapixel DX format DSLR Nikon F-mount camera announced by Nikon on August 19, 2010. It replaced the D3000 as Nikon's entry level DSLR. It introduced Nikon's new EXPEED 2 image processor and was the first Nikon DSLR featuring full high-definition video recording with full-time autofocus and H.264 compression, instead of Motion JPEG compression. It was also the first Nikon DSLR to provide high-definition video recording at more than one frame rate.[4]

Use is assisted by two Guide Modes: Easy Operation and Advanced Operation tutorial. On April 19, 2012, the D3200 superseded the D3100 as Nikon's entry-level DSLR.[5]


  • Nikon's 14.2-megapixel Nikon DX format CMOS sensor with 12 Bit Resolution.
  • Nikon EXPEED 2 image processor.
  • Active D-Lighting.

  • Full-time autofocus in movie mode.
  • 3D Color Matrix Metering II with Scene Recognition System.
  • 3D Tracking Multi-CAM 1000 autofocus sensor module with 11 AF points.
  • ISO sensitivity 100 to 3200 (6400 and 12800 with boost).
  • Nikon F-mount lenses.
  • i-TTL flash exposure system without built-in, but support for external wireless flash commander.
  • Extended In-camera retouching: D-Lighting, Red-eye reduction, Trimming, Monochrome & filter effects, Color balance, Small picture, Image overlay, NEF (raw) processing, Quick retouch, Straighten, Distortion control, Fisheye, Color outline, Perspective control, Miniature effect, Edit movie
  • File formats: JPEG, NEF (Nikon's raw, 12-bit compressed)
  • Compatibility with SDXC memory cards

Like Nikon's other consumer-level DSLRs, the D3100 has no in-body autofocus motor, and fully automatic autofocus requires one of the currently 162 lenses with an integrated autofocus-motor.[6] With any other lens, the camera's electronic rangefinder can be used to manually adjust focus.[7][8]

Can mount unmodified A-lenses (also called Non-AI, Pre-AI or F-type) with support of the electronic rangefinder and without metering.[9]

Optional accessories

The Nikon D3100 has available accessories such as:[10]

  • Nikon GP-1 GPS Unit for direct GPS geotagging. Third party solutions partly with 3-axis compass, data-logger, bluetooth and support for indoor use are available from Solmeta,[11] Dawn,[12] Easytag,[13] Foolography,[14] Gisteq[15] and Phottix.[16] See comparisons/reviews.[17][18][19]
  • Battery grip third party solutions are available.[20][21]
  • Nikon CF-DC1 Soft Case.
  • Third party solutions for WLAN transmitter are available.[22]
  • Various Nikon Speedlight or third party flash units[23] including devices with Nikon Creative Lighting System wireless flash commander or support for SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander.
Third party radio (wireless) flash control triggers[24] are partly supporting i-TTL,[25][26] but do not support the Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS).[27][28] See reviews.[29][30]
  • Common Optional Lens: AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR, AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8D. Note: Lenses without an internal autofocus motor can only use manual focus on the Nikon D3100.
  • Other accessories from Nikon and third parties, include protective cases and bags, eyepiece adapters and correction lenses, and underwater housings.


The D3100 has received many independent reviews[31][32] and image comparisons at all ISO speeds.[33]

The D3100 is the only known Nikon DSLR with an image sensor interface[34] integrating analog-to-digital converters not made by Nikon: The result is a dynamic range only at the level of competitors like the (higher priced) Canon EOS 600D;[35] lower than other current Nikon DSLRs.
