One of My Hobbies: Photography

I love taking pictures even though I am not good at it. Taking pictures of my son is one thing I like to do. How I wished I have a SLR so I can take better pictures :-). But this thing is really expensive and if I really want to get myself one, then I need to save for it. Lucky is my brother who got a SLR for a gift from us during our visit in the Philippines this June.

I would like to get the Nikon D3100 because according to consumer report this is the best one for your money.

Does have continuous shooting mode with 3fps, face detection, red eye reduction and auto flash are some of the key features of this camera.
