One of the cheapest DSLR cameras in the market in Philippines, the Nikon D3100 is amazingly smart. On the outside, you get Nikon’s standard protective casing – nothing fancy, but definitely does the job. On the inside, you get a sensor with 14.2MP sensor that makes it worth the payload. 11 tiny dots in the viewfinder help you focus with ease, making every shot crisp on auto mode.
The beauty of video mode with the Nikon D3100 is, once again, the autofocus. HD video makes it that much easier in a DSLR that usually doesn’t come with continuous autofocus in video mode. The AF-F works overtime so you can snap away. You may hear the autofocus’ slight noise though, but it’s not something to put you off. For an entry-level DSLR camera, you get much more than you pay for. Incredible!
If we’re talking about smart, the Active D-Lighting is what you’re going to love! Active D-Lighting is the feature that adjusts the lighting for every shot you take. If the lighting is too bright, the Active D-Lighting filters out the excess to make it more beautiful. You won’t even need a filter and your shots will be picturesque.
The Expeed Processor is Nikon’s secret weapon to eliminate noise at the highest ISO. Shooting at 12000 ISO becomes amazingly crisp with the Expeed2 Processor. For those just learning how to use manual functions, this feature will boost your confidence in creating masterpieces of photographs.
So what is the ultimate selling point of the Nikon D3100? The biggest selling point of the Nikon D3100 is the simplicity and usability of this camera. For anyone who is just trying out digital manual photography, this is the camera for you. What’s better, the Nikon D3100 is the cheapest model in its range! There’s no excuse not to get it. Even if you are a professional photographer, the Nikon D3100 works well with interchangeable lenses so you can customize your shots just with a switch of the lens. Ultimately, only user experience will determine your satisfaction. So get the Nikon D3100 in Philippines today!
