Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Nikon Transfer or Picasa.

SOURCE: How do I import pictures from my Nikon Coolpix

You can either connect the camera to the computer using the supplied USB cable, or remove the SD card from the camera and insert it into a card reader attached to the computer. The card reader is the preferred scheme, as it does not drain the camera's battery.

SOURCE: dropped my Nikon d3100 now pictures are coming out black is that because there is damage to the lens or the camera itself? Can it be fixed?

Yes and probably.
There apparently is damage to either the lens or the camera, most likely the camera. Though without being able to see any pictures damage to the lens is also possible.
If you can't see the menu when you press the MENU button then the damage may be restricted to the LCD screen. If the photos are black when viewed on a computer then the damage may involve the sensor. Without having an authorized Nikon repair shop take a look at it, it's impossible to know just what is damaged. And without knowing that, it's impossible to tell whether it can be fixed, and how much it would cost.

SOURCE: NIKON D3100 zoom problem

The D3100 doesn't have digital zoom capabilities. The zoom range depends on the lens you have fitted on. The 5.6 sounds like the aperture. The maximum aperture also depends on the lens.

The S3100 does have digital zoom capabilities. Is this the camera you're referring to? Or are you confusing the specs of the two cameras?

My Nikon d3100 only takes black photo's when the lens finder is working but the lcd is showing a black screen but still has icons so what is wrong?


sounds very much like a CCD unit failure. This will require another trip back for repairs and now that it is out of warranty it is going to cost plenty.

I have a D3100 and I don't know how to date stamp my pictures


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

What is the disadvantage of nikond3100


That depends on what you compare it with.

It's larger and heavier than a point-and-shoot camera, but it's smaller and lighter than an high-end DSLR.

It has a smaller sensor than a high-end DSLR, giving poorer results, especially in low-light situations. It has a larger sensor than a point-and-shoot camera, giving better results, especially in low-light situations.

It's more complex than a point-and-shoot camera, requiring more time to learn how to use it well. It's simpler than a high-end DSLR, requiring less time to learn how to use it well.


It doesn't give you as much control over picture-taking settings as a high-end DSLR will, and many of the settings require going through menus instead of simple buttons and dials. This can make the D3100 slower in operation. It gives you more control over picture-taking settings than a point-and-shoot camera, and provides access to some of those controls through buttons and dials, instead of going through menus. This can make the D3100 quicker in operation.

The D3100 won't focus with lenses without an autofocus motor. Higher-end DSLRs will autofocus with any autofocus lens.

No two camera models are identical. Only YOU can decide which features are most important to YOU. How important is the weight of the camera? Do you want a camera that's easy to learn, or one that's easy to control?

Trying to decide between purchasing a Nikon D80 or 3100....any advice?


The D3100 is newer, for what it's worth. It has LiveView and video capabilities.

The D3100 is intended for beginners, the D80 for more experienced users. The D3100 is easier to learn, the D80 is easier to use once you learn it. The D3100 is lighter, the D80 is more rugged.

The other major difference is that the D3100 does not have an autofocus motor, depending on the lens to have one. This means that some lenses (those not designated AF-S by Nikon) will not autofocus on the D3100 while they will on the D80.

The ultimate decision is up to you. Only you can decide which features are most important to you. Also, if you can, try to get your hands on the actual cameras. See which one feels more comfortable to you.
