As using this camera during my GCSE work I have needed too take certain kinds of pictures, unfortunately this camera only shoots in one mode - colour. The photos can be edited whilst on the camera though to monochrome, black and white and sepia, as well as a warm filtered colour.

Nikon cameras bought in the UK that are genuine UK Models come with a 12 month warranty that is extended to 24 months if you register the product with Nikon UK by post or over the internet. Nikon will then e-mail you with details of any product updates - for instance I have just been e-mailed by them for a firmware update that is available for the D5100. Registering on-line is also a good way of showing that the products are yours, for instance in the case of theft and insurance claims you have evidence of ownership and date of purchase

Hi, thank you for your question.

I have looked into this and the Nikon D3100 will only use other AF-S lenses (meaning it must have an internal motor for autofocus) or it will work as a manual focus lens.

Thank you for using Question and Answer.
