Color choice has long been an option reserved for point-and-shoot users. It’s a bit counter-intuitive that the people paying the least for their cameras have more options, but that’s the way it’s worked up until now.
Things are changing when it comes to color. Pentax and Canon have already released red versions of their cameras and now Nikon has joined in. There’s a new red D3100 available now that looks incredibly slick.
Aside from the color change, the cameras are exactly the same. Everything you’d expect out of a D3100 is still there but with a very different look. Some may prefer the matte black, but there’s something to be said for this gorgeous shiny red shell.
