With so many choices of digital SLR cameras on the market, it may be confusing deciding where to start. Do I get a camera with the capability to remove one lens and replace it with another–to go from ultra-wide-angle to super telephoto or do I want to not be bothered by the different lenses and get one with a fixed lens?
Mid September 2010, a new camera is scheduled to be released to the market by Nikon that is supposed to be easy to use and a great camera for the introduction in the world of SLR cameras. Since the Nikon D3100 SLR camera will be the first in the world to introduce a full time auto focus in both live view and movie view when shooting HD video as well, it is a great family camera.
For those who might be confused on how to use their first SLR camera and get the image that they want, it offers an enhanced guide mode in the camera to show you how to get the best quality picture. With is larger 3 inch LCD screen, you can be sure not to miss anything.
For those who would like to try a more “artistic” approach with the camera, there will be different camera lenses available including a new VR lens (18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 G) which will give you a super telephoto shot.
Another nice feature of this camera is that it image editing can be done for both pictures and video right on the camera. Red eye, filter and retouching can all be done with the Nikon’s program Viewnx. It is also a good family camera since it is the first DSLR to record a full 1880 of HD video and since the screen is so large, it is easy to play back and show others.
All in all this camera seems is be a fast (3 frames per second) and give great color and details in both pictures and HD movies with its 14.2 mp image sensor. It is definitely for someone who wants to step up to a SLR camera and use it for taking great pictures and movies of their family too. It is available at Amazon.com for preorder for $699.00.
