Upgraded from D7000 and what a great choice!
Posted by: George911 from: Northridge on
Ive owned a D7000 for about two years and when the new D71000 launched i read all the good reviews and they all are correct. This camera is amazing during the day , at night taking pictures and videos !
I bought the body only and bought 17-55mm 2.8 DX lens and let me tell you something BEST INVESTMENT EVERY! crystal clear and sharp pictures and at night! D7100 and the 17-55mm lens are a perfect couple.
so buy the body only and upgrade to a better lens then what they offer in the packages.
D7100 has a lot of setting but you dont need to be a pro to know them all.
the main common settings like ISO / aperture / shutter speed are very easy to access and you will learn more and more the more you use it :)
The build on the camera is like a tank. YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED !

Great Camera for anyone.
Posted by: sherryk from: Wisconsin on
I bought this to up-grade from my D3100. I already own the D7000 and was thinking of getting an other for a back up. Then the D7100 was released and I waited for it, seeing it was about the same in weight with 24megpix. Weight is a big factor for me, as I have back, shoulder and wrist troubles. I was told I should move up to the Full frame Nikon like the D4. I can't even lift it more or less to put a lens on something that big. Plus the D7100 takes the same battery as my D7000 super nice. I don't have to get new lens, awesome! And one of the main reason I really love the D7000 and D7100 is I can put my RAW on one chip and JPGE's on the other chip, duel SD slots. YES! I am so glad I got it, only took me a very short time to get it set up and start shooting. And really like the fact of the weather proofing, seeing I like to take wildlife pictures. Everything so far about the D7100 is awesome.. Don't really think I will be using the Effects maybe just to play with the grandkids pictures. Here are some pictures I have taken with it.

Great camera at any price
Posted by: Pablo from: on
This is an amazing camera for the price and ease of use. I love the ability for 2 SD cards. This will take 8,000 pictures at full megapixel with two 64mb cards

Awesome semi-pro camera.
Posted by: Jvbeta from: on
At first I was intimidated by all the features the Nikon D7100 came with, but I did a lot of homework, and practiced getting familiar with the menu. Now, I can get to my most used options without thinking about it.
There is so much the D7100 is capable of doing at a portion of the price of a full-body Nikon camera. I mainly use a Nikon prime 35MM lens for street photos, and a Nikon 55-200MM for various subjects.
If you are serious about photography, the Nikon D7100 is a great semi-pro DSLR that you can actually make a living with. Images are sharp, options are plentiful, the dual card slot, weather resisted finish, and solid build make this an easy item for my to recommend.

Great Camera with a Few Surpirises
Posted by: Max2000 from: Long Island Ny on
The Nikon D7000 was my first modern Nikon, and I was so impressed by the camera's abilities that I sold my entire collection of Canon equipment without any hesitation. I am not going to repeat all the accolades that you've no doubt already read about which make the D7100 a very solid performer. Here are just a few negative aspects of the D7100 that I did not expect.
1) I grew up using solid metal cameras, today they're called antiques, but in my opinion there is something about the Multi-Selector on the rear of the D7100 that makes it feel much cheaper than the D7000.
2) Light Room 4.4 tethered capture works quite well with the D7000, however surprise surprise surprise; the D7100 is not supported.
3) The last unexpected fact, I think you need to be aware of, is that the USB cable is not the same for the two cameras. The D7000 uses part number UC-E4 and the D7100 is supplied with UC-E6. They are not interchangeable.
To be honest none of these would have changed my decision, but I had read every review that I could find on the internet and yet I was still surprised by these unexpected facts.

Strong and powerful
Posted by: RoshD from: CA on
Feeling very good after upgrading to this camera from D3100. D7100 saved me a lot of money since I was thinking about D600 by selling all my DX glasses which includes my favourites Tokina 11-16 f2.8, Nikkor 17-55 f2.8, Nikkor 40mm f2.8
Here are some of the things I like
- Auto- focus is so fast and accurate. Very good even in low light.
- Very good low light results. Now I can crank my ISO up to 3200
- U1 and U2 are very useful. U1 is my 'A' and U2 is my 'S' with bit more higher ISO for extreme conditions :)
- Nice color depth and details in the image. 14-bit is very good for shadow recovery.
- Awesome build quality, feel good and strong in hand
- Dual SD cards with different options for saving images
- Awesome battery life. Yes I am coming from D3100 :)
- Getting much sharper macro-shots
- Good price
Few things could have improved are
- Buffer size. If you shoot 14-bit RAW+JPEG Fine, you may need an SD card that writes 95MB/S or atleast 45MB/S
- WiFi could have been built it. (It is worth buyng this tiny WiFi thingy if you like to take a picture with you and your family. You don't need to run back to your place in 9 seconds and get an awful face expression in the shot.)

Great camera for an experienced enthusiast.
Posted by: Elmerviking from: on
Nikon D7100 is an awesome camera with advanced settings. I am an avid photographer who really appreciate all possibilities .I have not tested video yet, I believe I might do in the future. I purchased this camera because it felt great in my hand, felt sturdy and of course of all positive reviews. When I tested it the first time in "Auto" mode I was really impressed how nice the pictures turned out. After reading the manual from first page to last page and some books, I am even more impressed. The camera is so easy to use even a rookie can take awesome pictures. One drawback is the buffer size when you shoot Raw, but I am not a sport photographer, so it doesn't bother me at all. Being photographing for billions of years I have a very good understanding of how aperture, ISO and shutter time affects the nod result, but a rookie can learn this by checking all tutorials at YouTube. I highly recommend this DSLR!

Great step up from my Nikon D3200 for my career
Posted by: Linds from: on
This camera is absolutely spectacular. As a professional photographer that writes and photographs for specialty magazines, I need a camera that can shoot anything from in-door shows to low-light features. This camera gives me a great range of settings for the price to be able to do more with my art form and continue to grow as a photographer in my career! I would definitely recommend this camera for any photographer that has some experience with manual modes and wants to continue to progress in their art! Photos of camera compliments of Nikon USA.

Great upgrade from D90
Posted by: Pezlud from: Fargo, ND on
I've owned a 8008s, D40, D90, and now the D7100. Was deciding whether to go D600 or D7100 and based on various factors such as getting new lenses; decided to stay with D7100. I've owned it for about a month and have taken some sunset; daylight; and indoor, no flash, at a concert pictures. There is a noticeable increase in picture quality from the D90. Less noise at high ISO (concert pics). More "depth" in color (sunset and daylight) pics. Easier to change settings with on board buttons. Since I'm an amateur, not a professional, this camera will give me all the quality in pictures I need; without the additional cost of the D600 and upgrading my DX lenses to full frame lenses. Glad I bought this camera. Focusing is accurate and quick. Highly recommended.
