The D3100 Red – our first ever vibrantly coloured D-SLR


We’re delighted to announce that our bestselling D-SLR, the D3100, will be available across Europe in a vibrant red colour from 22nd September.

The D3100 Red will be our first ever primary coloured D-SLR and will offer the same 14.2 megapixels, Guide Mode, full HD movie and Live View modes as our hugely popular D3100.

The D3100 Red is a fantastic introduction to the world of SLR photography. We’ve designed it to help you capture all of life’s important moments in perfect quality so you can focus less time on settings such as aperture and ISO, and more time ensuring that the perfect picture doesn’t pass you by.

What do you make of our D3100 Red? Having a colour D-SLR is a first for us and we’re excited to hear what you think, so do let us know.

    You have to make white cameras, because white reflects the light and the camera kees cooler!!

    My other half’s been using a red Sony NEX-3 for a while now and has been looking to step up into a proper DSLR, she wants to be able to use my lenses so she’s limited into Nikon but really fancied the coloured options competition companies offered (yes, she’s a bit of a material girl).
    She saw this and is sold, roll on release date!

    got my red d3100 month ago..it was offered in very limited quantity here in the Philippines. sources indicates that only 50 samples were released here and most of the units are not on display and are stored secretly inside the stores due to limited stocks. i have put on a tamron 70-300mm and a black battery grip with black body strap. now my d3100 looks as cool as the photos it produces. traditional dslr users whoa are used to black cameras always have a hard time admitting their admiration for my camera..

  17. D3100 Download to Tablet

    I have managed to connect my D3100 to my Samsung Galaxy Tab S via the transfer lead on the camera and the charging lead for the tablet using a double female USB.
    The icons representing images appeared on the Tablet, but would not open and further stabbing led to the notice ‘ images did not download, try again’.

    As the tablet has an AMOLED screen the images come up far better than on the PC screen ( though I am limited with the tablet software what can be done to the images. But as a quick look whilst out shooting it could be an advantage to be able to do download to the tablet.

    I may need extra software to see RAW images, but at present I want to get this working on jpegs.

    Has anybody tried this on a similar tablet, did it work, and what did you have to do in order for it to work?
    We are talking a handheld computer not a phone and the OTG connector lead (micro USB end) is not compatible with the tablet or the camera connections.

    Please advise

    Hi there, currently we don’t have a solution to connect a camera directly to a tablet with a lead. We have the WUM app which can download images wirelessly to some tablets or if you took the memory card out you can get card adapters which plug into the tablet and use 3rd party software to import the files. Currently, Nikon software ViewNX-i and Capture NX-D is designed for Mac OS X 10.8, 10.9 and 10.10 currently and Windows Vista, 7 and 8.1. If you have further questions or need help with anything else, please don’t hesitate to ask. :)
