Nikon D3200 is the update to the entry level D3100, with a new 24.2 megapixel sensor, which is impressive for an entry level Digital SLR, with a solid build, even though it is made of plastic, you can also get the D3200 in red and image quality doesn't disappoint.
The Nikon D3100 may be getting older as time goes on, but it is still an excellent camera with a 14 megapixel sensor,3 inch screen, Full HD video, 18-55mm VR (Vibration Reduction) Kit lens, 3fps continuous shooting, and ISO100 to ISO12800.
