“First, this is quite an expensive camera when...”

Written on: 24/11/2002 by Garland. (1 review written)

First, this is quite an expensive camera when considered against the features you get. Both Canon and Minolta offer much less expensive models with vastly superior feature sets. Ostensibly, the greatest reason for any serious amateur to invest in any Nikon SLR body, all of which have serious shortcomings-particularly this pricey F100-is to gain access to the vast range of Nikkor lenses which have a superior reputation for fine optical performance. However, having experienced an array of… Read Full Review

Teng3's Response to 53146_Garland.'s Review

umm, if you don't consider an excess of 1/2000 shutter speeds and 4.5fps shooting to be important, you're a very confused photographer. Firstly, you are either shooting indoor still life for fun, or you're smoking crack. Secondly, if you aren't looking for a camera with professional specs, you should never have looked to the F100 to begin with. Try an "N" series SLR, they lack all you don't want anyway. Pro's such as photojournalists and sports journalists will appreciate the versatillity of the F100. Perhaps not every shot runs at 1/8000, but isn't it nice to know you can if you need to? Racing fans will appreciate the ability to stop motion of an F-1 car moving at 230mph. The "F" series has always been known as the professional series of cameras by nikon and they therefore come with professional level specs. Look elsewhere if you want mere mortal specs that even prosumer SLR's achieve but don't tell everyone it does too much and therefore costs more. Thats why you have so many disagreeing and unhelpful ratings.

Rob Valine's Response to 53146_Garland.'s Review

I have both the Contax Aria and the Nikon F100. This is the way I see it. Different tools for different situations. The Contax equipment is beautiful high quality stuff. Great for weddings and Fine Art stuff where you have time to focus. Images are outstanding. My reason for buying a Nikon F100 after shooting with Contax for 7 years is simple. There are some things where you simply need a high speed motor drive and auto focus. Such as shooting wildlife where you may only have a second or two to get the shot. Compare 3 frames a second with the Aria to 5 frames a second with the F100. I recently shot a hawk with the Aria firing full blast at 3 frames a second through a 500 mm lens. I got 4 shots before the hawk was gone. It's simply not fast enough for this type of work.

“A camera with a fine design and well placed commands....”

Written on: 13/07/2001 by Paolo Denti. (1 review written)

A camera with a fine design and well placed commands. However, it does not encompass significant advances beyond F801s and F90x. Metallic alloys employed seems too sensitive to humidity. As a consequence, the knob to unlock lenses may glide irregularly. Priced too high… Read Full Review
