The Nikon D3100 is an entry-level camera for beginners. In addition to its standard Nikon D-SLR interface, it offers an easy-to-follow Guide mode with three basic categories that offer simple shooting tips rather than presenting complex photographic terms. Aware that the complexity of D-SLRs can be intimidating, this feature allows users to hit the ground running, giving novice photographers the confidence to quickly improve their photographic skills while having fun at the same time. As users progress, Guide modes Advanced Operation menu allows for more technical control while still offering simple, step-by-step guidance.
