Default Dimage XT or Nikon Coolpix 3100

Hello everyone,

I want to buy a new camera (have had an agfa CL20 for 1.5 year, really need an upgrade) I really don't know wich one to buy. I've looked for the specifications of both camera's, but the problem is I don't know what it all means. The most important thing for me is to have really good pictures. So, wich one should I buy???

Thx in advance!

Hi and welcome to the forum!!!!
Have you read Steves reviews on these cameras?

I don't know a lot about the Minolta XT, but I have the Nikon 3100. It is a great camera and very easy to use. I have been so impressed with the picture quality from this little cam.
It looks like it would be more comfortable to hold than the XT (just a thought). It does not have a low light focus assist beam, but I get good pics when it is dark, it just takes the camera a little longer to focus.

There are also some good reviews to check out at

I hope this helps
Take care and good luck with your new camera!

Thx SSD

I have bought the minolta XT today, looks good so far
I have one question (for now )
Everytime I take a picture it takes about 15! seconds before I can take another one because it has to save it. Is it possible to turn this off? I have looked in my manual but i can't find it anywhere.

Hi,
Congrats on your new camera!
I don't know a lot about the XT, but what format are you shooting in? If you are shooting in TIFF, then it does take a lot longer to store versus shooting in JPEG.
