#1. "RE: Video with D3100?"
In response to In response to 0

Hi Bill,

The D3100 will not handle non-CPU lenses, any non AF-S lenses (AF D lenses for instance) must be manually focused. The D3100 does work well in manual mode.

The kit lenses for the D3100 are cheap in $$ and very light - BUT are very high quality optically. That may be a solution for AF in video.

I shot some HD video with a D3100 using an AF-S NIKKOR 18-200 VR G which looked great on our HD TV.

Nikon's D3100 Digitutor may be helpful with what the D3100 can and can't do.

I hope this helps,
Well Wishes
