The Nikon D100 digital camera is a good overall workhorse, and it is an excellent back-up for anyone who owns a D1 series digital camera. (read more)

After 11 months, the Nikon D100 lens assembly broke. (Fortunately, still under warranty.) After 17 months, (10,000 photos) the shutter stopped working. Nikon wanted $500 to fix it. After much haggling and many weeks without the camera, they agreed to fix it for $250. This is not your fathers Nikon. Ask the service department at your local store -- I talked to three stores and all say that Nikon D100 is not as reliable as comparable Canon. I will never buy another Nikon after this experience.

The Nikon brand name has always enjoyed a solid reputation, and the D100 adds to its accolades. It is well featured, and has just about everything you'd want in an SLR camera, whether it be digital or film. The allure of a digital SLR is that you can still use the same interchangeable lenses, thereby increasing flexibility with shooting options with regard to aperture control, use of filters, but even more so, it is that a digital SLR handles pretty much like a film SLR. In this respect, the... (read more)

When I first got my Nikon D100, I thought I was being ripped off due to the cost, but when I checked the results, it is a REALLY good camera. Great value for money, and good quality. (read more)

I love the Nikon D100, it allows Nikon users to move their skills into digital with no learning curve on the image getting side. Photoshop CS is a must for the post-capture phase. I would like to be able to shoot more RAW files faster. Since they have superb post-capture flexibility and tweakability. However, if you shoot 4-5 RAW files fast, the buffer loads up and you are dead until they are all written out to the card. You might miss a lot of nice shots in that painfully long period...

Before trying, and consequently buying, the Nikon D100 I was a bit sceptical about digital cameras. I tried a lot of D.cameras before and was still convinced on film cameras. D100 lets me appreciate digital a lot, although for certain shots I absolutely still prefere my Nikon F4S or my very old Hasselblad 500C. D100 is versatile, great when you need something to get quickly images of good quality. I think in the panorama of similar price D.cameras it is absolutely at the top. The only... (read more)

The camera has excellent fit, finish and balance, feels like a traditional SLR and produces stunning images. The menu structure is laid out well and is thankfully supplemented with knobs, dials and switches that take most of the need to menu hunt out of the picture. Most common shooting funtions and adjustments are reached by twirling controls, exactly like any SLR. If you have used a Nikon AF SLR, then you'll feel right at home. Everything is where it should be and the learning curve is... (read more)

The shutter miliseconds response is so slow that when you try to photograph nature at the decisive moment, the shutter lag is just impossible to accomplish that. Any movement of your subject, and the camera does not capture what you saw. High speeds/fast film do not help. Every speed used sounds like a 1/10 sec. shutter speed and because of its slow response, and the moment you wanted is not captured. One good side to this is that you do not waste film. I believe that the LCD settings are... (read more)

Image quality is very good with the Nikon D100 SLR digital camera (with good lens).
As I'm a serious amateur photographer, I'm so happy to use this D100 instead of my former conventional cameras because the pictures I have had printed by digital lab are no difference from film.
Another point is that the camera is quite fast in all functions as a normal SLR. (read more)
