This Sunday, July 22, 2012, is a great time to buy a Nikon D3100 from Adorama:

Why the D3100? Why not as a backup camera. At this price the Nikon is a fantastic bargain. It’s a compact and lightweight photographic powerhouse featuring the all-purpose 18-55mm VR lens and a high-resolution 14.2MP CMOS sensor along with a feature set that’s comprehensive yet easy to navigate. Easily capture the action other cameras miss with a fast start up time, split-second shutter release, 3 fps shooting and 11-point autofocus. Capture pictures and make movies in near darkness with an ISO range of 100 to 3,200 (expandable to 12,800-Hi2).
