Frequently Asked Questions

  • Which is better for a beginner: Nikon D3100 or D3200?

    The D3100 is probably better for a beginner. It comes at a good price with high quality images. With the D3200, you need to buy glass for higher quality images, whereas the D3100 comes with a lens to get you started.

  • What is the optical zoom rating?

    The lens that comes with the kit zooms about three times. The zoom for this type of camera depends on the lens you use. With the lenses, the first numbers, such as 55-300mm, tells you the focal length. In this case, it is a range. Basically, you can get a different zoom by using a different lens.

  • For my first DSLR, should I choose the Nikon D3100 or the D7000?

    Since it's your first, you should go with the D3100. The D7000 can give better picture quality, but you need to understand more of how to use its features like its lowlight capabilities. The D3100 is easier to use and understand in the beginning to get high picture quality. Try a Nikon 35mm f1.8 lens to start.

  • For my first DSLR, should I choose a Nikon D3100 or a Canon Rebel t3?

    For a first time user, the Nikon D3100 is probably a better bet. The Canon Rebel is user friendly, fast and takes great photos. However, it costs more than the Nikon and the Nikon comes with most of the same features. This Nikon is easy to use for first timers with directions, easy shoot settings and a lens with the kit.
