NOTE: Amazon is taking pre-orders for the D3100 kit here.
Nikon just announced its D3100 DSLR camera, which is a video-enhanced upgrade to the popular D3000, which itself replaced the D40.
Here are the main improvements over the D3000:
- 1080p video recording
- 14.2 megapixel sensor
- live view mode
- ISO range extended to 12,800
If you don’t need video, I would check out a refurbished D3000 kit for just $375 at Adorama. Even a refurbished D5000 kit, which goes for about $520 at Adorama would be a better deal for the money if you’re not into video.
