Some civil war soldiers taken with the Nikon D3100. I have had the camera long enough now to know I like it. The big benefit is the small size compared to my Nikon D300s. The video has some better features than the D300s too. Likely I will use the D3100 a lot. What I notice though, is that the D300s does have the edge with image quality and also the D3100 pictures looking a little washed out, nothing that can’t be fixed in post processing though.
Another shot of the Hamilton lockout. Notice the van in the background - it is full of private security guards. Ordinarily when I take pictures of the steelworks gates the security guards come out to harass me. This time they did not, probably because there were a few dozen angry striking steelworkers standing behind me when I took this shot.
So busy with classes and grading over the past whilte no time to post. But I did get time to go pick up a Nikon D3100 body. No chance to do any serious testing yet – but I will soon, The intent is this will replace the D60 as a lightweight backup body to the D300s. The D3100 also has video capabilities (unline the D60) and these are supposed to be better even than the D300s video — we will see over the coming weeks if this is so.
