    I've already found the D3100 for £330 but can't really wait a couple of months more as it's my birthday start of May and parents are putting a bit of money towards it for me :ahee:
    Hey, where did you find the Nikon for that price? I'm thinking of buying.

    To a certain extent yes, but use a disposable camera and a £500 camera and there'll be a massive difference :teehee:

    I don't know... I've seen some good photos taken on disposable cameras, and some awful ones taken on DSLRs (including my early efforts. :lol:)

    A good photographer will likely take a better photo with the DSLR, but someone who doesn't know what they're doing with the DSLR will be better off with a camera more capable of auto functions.

    Yes but it's not like I'm going in assuming I'm going to take amazing photos just cos I've got a DSLR but this should help me approve, and my aunt who does a lot of photography is helping me out :yep:

    The D3100 soon decended to a price in the same range as the D3000 it replaced.

    That is why I never buy a body or lens until at least 6 months after it has hit the shelves, rather than 6 months from announcement. The launch price of the D3100 was 100 pounds more than a D5000, which is why my daughter has a D5000. The D3100 price will be optimal as it has been replaced by the D3200, which also hit the shelves, so now is an excellent time to buy a D3100 from a value perspective although availability will be for a limited time as the supply chain gets cleared down.

    A quick google revealed alot of prices between 350 and 380, but some at 329 and one at 309.

    I find the biggest issue with SLRs is that it requires a commitment to further spend. As a standard 18-55 will be too limiting for most users, especially if they have been using good quality bridge cameras, or even some of the higher end compacts.
