Nikon D3100 dSLR gets Full 1080p video

Nikon introduced a new entry-level dSLR, the Nikon D3100, which has the capability of recording full HD 1080p videos.

The Nikon D3100 is the successor to the popular D3000 line and brings in a set of new features and upgrades.


Nikon D3100
14.2 CMOS sensor
ISO 100 – 3200 (expandable to 12800)
up to 3fps shooting speed
Full HD (1920×1080) @ 24fps
3″ LCD display
Live View
11-point AF system
EXPEED 2 image processing engine
Dual Integrated Dust Reduction System
SD card (SDHC- and SDXC-compliant)

The estimated $USD699 price tag seemed reasonable and it might catch up with Canon’s EOS 550D in the HD video department. The Nikon D3100 will come with a AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR as the kit lens.

  5. Nonoy says:

    But still no AF motor?:(

  6. poche says:

    walang motor yan entry level e.

  7. Teknisyan says:

    Nice for would be photographers… but I’d still go for the Nikon D5000. :)

  8. android_fanboi says:

    “the camera focuses continuously during movie recording” ——- sounds great!

    from Nikon site:

    In addition, the camera also offers an AF-F (full-time servo AF) focus mode for movie recording. When AF-F mode is enabled, the camera focuses continuously during movie recording without the need for holding the shutter-release button down halfway. The D3100 also offers in-camera movie editing functions that allow users to save a single frame as a still image or delete unnecessary portions from the beginning or end of movie files.

  9. DeNc!oH says:

    I agree with Teknisyan, would still prefer the Nikon D5000 over the new D3100 due to:

    4fps continuous shooting (3fps only in D3100)
    Active-D lighting (only On/Off in D3100)
    Swivel LCD

  10. Fleeb says:

    AF motor would make the body more expensive.

  31. fatboi says:

    @tish023ph: Where can I find Mang Ramon’s store? Nikon D3100 for 30,500? Sa Picture City 34K selling price nila.

  32. tish023ph says:

    @fatboi: The store’s name is Mayers. it’s located at hidalgo, quiapo. just walk along the stretch of that street and you will the find it. Ingat lang ah medyo crowded ang street na yon.

  33. iQ50 says:

    panu warranty sa Hidalgo? dba 2years warranty ng nikkon or 3years?

  34. mykel says:

    update po sa mayers 27,500 na po ang d3100.

    @iq50 – depende po sir kung cdsc unit bibilhin mo medyo mahal ang price nya di tulad ng grey unit na less 4k sa cdsc unit price. yun standard warrantry ng cdsc ng nikon is 2 yrs lang talaga kapag grey unit bibilhin mo bale store warranty lang kaya kapag nasira within the 7days replacement warranty papalitan nila yun ng bago kapag sira sya. pero kapag after 7days replacement warranty natapos na ayun free lang ang labor pero yun parts babayaran mo medyo pricey parts ng dslr. if i wer u kung may pera ka naman pang bili ng with cdsc warranty yun na lang bilhin mo wala ka pang iintindihin sa warranty. hope helps…

    please…can you tell me where i can buy a cheapest d3100 in hidalgo.. i want to get one as soon as possible before march..

  41. mykel says:

    kakabili ko lang ng d3100 ko kay mayer kay mang ramong. bili ko 27k freebies 4gb sdhc, bag. ok aftersales nila. pag uwi ko sa bahay di ko napansin na may black spot na dumi sa loob ng view finder. binalik ko after 2 days kasi di ko nabalik nun kinabukasan kasi busy ako. pagbalik ko check nila item then after makita problema pinalitan agad nila brand new d3100 ko. tapos bumili na rin me cleaning kit binigyan agad ako ni mang ramon discount. as far as i know si henrys pinakmababa price 26.5k sa hidalgo pero interms sa aftersales di ko pa sila nasusubukan. kay mang ramon naka indicate sa resibo 1 yr service warranty saka 6 months parts warranty. ok na rin. kay avenue photo pala 27.5k freebies tablepod, 4gb sdhc, cleaning cloth saka card reader.
    FYI po…
