nikon-d3100

Back when cameras took pictures on this weird ribbony stuff called film, taking good photos took practice and talent. But as the digital cameras have come of age and their prices fallen from levels requiring the sale of an organ to something more accessible, taking great photos has become easier than ever. Nikon’s new D3100 is no different: a large-format 14 megapixel CMOS sensor means the camera gathers more light per pixel, making shooting in low light situations easier. It’s also Nikon’s first DSLR to shoot full 1080p HD film at 30 fps, making home porno home movies a cinch. Comes with a great lens that allows for both wide-angle and telephoto shots. The full list of features is too extensive to print here, so follow the jump to get your geek on.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
