Nikon introduces bestselling D-SLR in Red

Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 8 September 2011 – For the first time ever, Nikon introduces a primary coloured model to its D-SLR camera range. From 22nd September, its bestselling D-SLR, the D3100, will be available across Europe in red.

The D3100 is Nikon’s popular entry-level D-SLR. The new addition to the range will offer the same 14.2 megapixels, Guide Mode, full HD movie, and Live View modes as the original D3100. However, the introduction of a vibrant red model is set to broaden the camera’s appeal among first-time D-SLR users, families and young people.

The camera has been hugely popular amongst newcomers to D-SLR photography, particularly those looking to capture all of life’s important moments in perfect quality, without worrying about settings. It has been particularly well received by families, as the camera makes it easy to shoot beautiful photos and full HD movies capturing those unmissable times.

The D3100 Red will be available across Europe from 22nd September.

I think the red D3100 looks nice, but it doesn't look professional at all. Might as well go out and by a pink point and shoot. Once you go black, you never go back. I love my BLCAK D3100.

@Angie - Well, it doesn't have the same professional look as the black, but if you went out and bought a pink point and shoot you wouldn't quite get the quality pics you do with a D3100, would you? And I would think that the color of a professional's camera wouldn't deter customers if they took good pictures.

ouch... red doesn't look good for dslr. am observing the 1100D, it looks not good. as if you are not holding a camera with an edge... it looks like you are holding a point and shoot cam.

@Kari- how can the customer take you seriously if you are shooting with a red camera? Everybody is used to the traditional "professional" black.

You need to stop thinking like said it doesn't look professional in black you all said the same thing...yeah, what can i say, wow, i don't look pro' with this Nikon, cause it's red...let the photos do the talking, and not to mention the fact that this Nikon D3100 is not aimed at the professional photographer now is it ?...what if you were taking photos with your "professional" BLACK D3100 and a guy with a Hasselblad H4D-200MS would stop by next to you ?..Yeah, then you would feel really professional, wouldn't you ?...Stop dreaming kids, the Nikon D3100 in red version is not PRO, cause the D3100 is not a PRO DSLR...wake up !

Who cares if the camera itself looks professional or not, it's all about the photo quality and this should be your main concern. I personally prefer it in red, it stands out and looks different, black's a bit boring. I couldnt care less if someone sees me taking photos and thinks 'oh wow, this girl's camera looks really unprofessional..' - my photos speak for themselves! ;)

Just bought the D3100 in red and I am loving it. Color is just a color. They both do the same.
