Nikon D100

Created: 07/02/08
Review for: Nikon D100 6.1 MP Digital SLR Camera - Black (Body only)
The reason I bought this camera was for a back-up form my Nikon D80. I'd thought about the Nikon D200 but really couldn't justify the expense, if I wait some time they'll come down in price due to the release of the D300 & D3 models.

The D100 is classed as a professional camera and it is, slightly bigger and bulkier than my D80 you really need to get to know the functions. Not suited to the every-day enthusiast I'd imagine; you need to drive this camera as it won't do it for you. Yes, it has a programme function which the camera selects the best shutter speed and aperture settings but that the limit.

It has and is still taking me some time to get to know it compared to my D80, the screen is rather small in comparison as its max 6.2 meg resolution. These are not prohibative but merely cosmetic given the growth rate in technology in the SLR camera market, what was the best yesterday isn't so today. To me the build quality and brand is more important and anyone seriously interested in photography will understand this whichever their preferred brand may be.

Great camera, excellent build but out of date compared to the newer models but given I bought it as a back-up camera it's ideal for me (for now!)

Review for: Nikon D100 6.1 MP Digital SLR Camera - Black (Body only)
Just a great camera, kinda underrated. Often described as a prosumer body but I feel its a professional camers.
Ergonically up there with the best Iv'e used (and i've used them all)
Responsive and excellent user menus , modes and dials. Very well made and good build quality. Fast to use though not a sports shooter so shutter mashers beware/
The raw images are fantastic, with a lovely understated tone and colour response. Its the only digital camera I've used that feels and looks like film. I forget I'm using a digital camera
As such it produces images that are full of atmosphere and convert wonderfully to black and white.
Originally I had bought this as a backup camera but I've fallen for it. Its a great complement to my fuji cameras and colours when i want a different "being there" kind of photograph. I recently drive tested a d300 and didn't like it!- superior though the technology surely is my advice would be to get a d100 and some fantastic glass.

Review for: Nikon D100 6.1 MP Digital SLR Camera - Black (Body only)
The Nikon D100 is an excellent starter camera for entry level to semi professional digital photography.this original had a price tag of around £1500 for the body and £500 for the lens, so you can see when it was launched it was aimed for the professional with the build quality you would expect from Nikon. it will take all the older 35mm film camera AF Lenses as it is based on the Nikon f80 film camera, unlike the newer budget line of Nikons such as the D3000 Etc which can only use the newer DX AF Series lenes which has the af motor built into the lens rather that the camera body as is the D100.
it uses compact flash memory card and offers much better value for money on the secondhand market than the newer lesser featured budget line of digital cameras on the market for the same financial outlay.

Nikon D100 DSLR Review

Created: 06/09/09
Review for: Nikon D100 6.1 MP Digital SLR Camera - Black (Body only)
Reason purchased
I aleady had some lenes for Nikon 35 mm SLR and wished to utilise them. Also since changing to digital with a prosummer camera I found it irritating not to be able to get decent action shots that I was able to get easily with the SLR. Even thought he camera is only(?) 6.3 Mp its resolution is very much adequate for my purposes. The chase for more and more Mega pixels is primarily a marketing tactic once you are over 5 Mp or unless you want to submit photos to high class publications such as Vogue etc.

Likes
Being able to clearly see the subject through the lens and take action shots. The ability to use my quality Nikon lenes once again.

Dislikes
The downside of the versatility of a DSLR is the additional bulk and weight but this is far outweighed by the better lenses etc.
As the D100 uses a DX format sensor it effectively multiplies the focal length by 1.5 so my 35-70 zoom has become a 52 to 105, therefore I no longer have a wide angle lens. The plus is that my 100-400 zoom has become a 150-600 zoom great for long distance shots.

All I have to do now is learn all the controls and go out an enjoy my purchase.

A Pro Quality Camera that still outshines many others

Created: 03/03/07
Review for: Nikon D100 6.1 MP Digital SLR Camera - Black (Body only)
The D100 is a camera for keen amateur and aspiring professional photographers.

Since its introduction, Nikon has produced four ever cheaper cameras, with ever fewer features (the D70, D70s, D50 & D40). I have owned and used the first three. They do have some updates, which may make them more suitable for your needs, particularly if you want to shoot JPG rather than RAW files (by RAW files I mean digital negatives, that record all of the information picked up by the sensor). For example, they have faster buffers which enable you to shoot more pictures, more quickly.

Viewed pixel for pixel, D70 and D50 files can also superficially look better, as they sometimes exhibit less noise and appear sharper before post-processing. These cameras are also tweaked to produce brighter colours and lighter pictures to make them more appealing to amateur photographers.

But in my experience, if you shoot RAW the D100 still produces the best pictures. Only the D200 (and perhaps the D80, which I have not used) can outshine the D100, and even here I still prefer the D100 for some purposes.

Why might the D100 be preferable to these more recent cameras? Well, the D100 has a sensor that in the view of many outperforms those on the derivative cameras. The RAW files it produces make more contrasty, better-looking pictures, with more accurate colours, and smooth tonal gradations. I once took a series of identical photos on the D100 and D70, and found that when viewing the images as a whole, I could easily identify the D100 images on the basis of better image quality, and in particular, accurate sky colours (D70 skies tend to turn turquoise, which I hate).

Here are some more advantages of choosing the D100:
Better build
Greater reliability (no BGLOD)
Mirror lock-up (for macro photography)
Delay mode to minimize vibrations (also useful for macro)
Uncompressed RAW (records more information, providing smoother gradations of light and colour)
Better for low light photography
Subdued, subtle colours
Better view-finder with glass pentaprism
Vertical grip option with possibility of attaching sound memos to the images
More accurate colour
Better shutter
Better battery life

If you need the greater accuracy of iTTL flash photography, then a D70 may be preferable. But the D70 is pretty crippled with regard to wireless flash, whereas the I have had very acceptable results with the D100 (using two flashes, one mounted on the hotshoe and the other used as a remote).

Finally, if you are buying a D100, but have not used a Nikon DSLR before (and even if you have) there are two things you should be aware of about the D100:
1. Images straight from the camera tend to look underexposed. This is normal. The meter is adjusted to protect the highlights from burning out. You can adjust the images to look how you want using Nikon Capture, or similar post-processing software.
2. D100 images can look soft. This is because the D100 has an especially fierce AA filter in front of the sensor. You can recover all of the lost sharpness and detail by careful sharpening during post processing.

For both of these reasons, D100 files can be slightly more tricky to post-process than those of other cameras. But if you can survive the learning curve, you will find the camera is capable of producing the most outstanding photographs.
