Fred Alexander.'s review of Nikon F100


“A complex, professional camera. I bought my first...”

Written on: 29/04/2000 by Fred Alexander. (1 review written)

Good Points
Quality construction, fast focusing, excellent metering,

Bad Points
Not bad, but clearly someone who has the $ and really wants a point & shoot with interchangeable lenses will be baffled by the F-100. It is heavy compared to less costly models.

General Comments
A complex, professional camera. I bought my first Nikon FTn 31 years ago. While I can use the F-100 much like that superb manual camera, it wasn't created for someone who'll be satisfied with manual technology.

It requires study. And if you buy the SB-28 flash to make the most of flash/camera capabilities, you'll need to study the flash too, IMHO.

I am very, very pleased with the F-100. If I didn't need its ruggedness, I think the N-80 would be fine for me.

If the object is the image, other cameras will do. If you
want to be able to use older, expensive manual Nikon lenses,
know it'll get banged around no matter what, and feel like
some of its metering and AF options are important, this is
a great camera.

If you're a casual photographer doing family photos and vacations, I'd carry something lighter and less expensive.
