Thanks!

OOT: I did not expect him to use a relatively slow shutter speed like that for a studio shot.  I wonder if it was with continuous lights?

Mircea is a romanian photographer and if I am not wrong I think Nikon actually gave him a D7100 to test before they launched the camera.

Another good romanian photographer is Laurentiu Ilie, he too got to test the D7100.

PS. I found them on the romanian nikon forum nikonisti.ro

Excellent shares! I think you have pushed me over the fence to a D7100. Can you please tell us what kind of lights you used? I use continuous for more and more for my studio portraits so would love the details. Thanks for posting.

You can see it in the eyes.

Beauty dish (to make it contrasty but soft) and a medium softbox with grid (to give a soft, controlled accent)

Fantastic shots, very sharp, great colors, color wise I cannot tell it from D800. Only the resolution.

Thanks

Thanks for reply - I was referring to whether they used diffused fluorescent, LED, tungsten?

Well ...
In reply to alex3322, Mar 20, 2013

on my monitor (iMac 27") the D7100's shot is better both regarding skintones and detail ...

Causes for that may be conversion/settings (color) and camera shake/focus (detail).

The D800's image looks overprocessed a bit, more staurated with a yellow shift and too contrasty. Color/tone gradation is a bit too steep for my taste.

D7100's looks excellent in my opinion, very natural, about perfect.

But I really like the tone gradation, color smoothness, fine grain and texture of sky in those images.

Superb output from the D7100!
In reply to alex3322, Mar 20, 2013

I can't wait for the bashers to find something on these.  Oh wait there is grain in the airplane shot.  OMG dump the camera, it is obviously not any better than the D7000.

It it quite apparent that this camera is a worthy successor to the D7000.  And that Toshiba can make a decent sensor - wonderful color and tone.

Output reminds me of the D3x.  Super sharp (even sharper), excellent color, very tiny and unobjectionable grain.  The price however, nothing like the over-priced D3x was.  Still amazed that anyone paid $8000 for that thing.

The colors are really th high point, very natural. Grain is actually low and quite filmlike (this guy knows how to convert files). The skintones are superb in the D7100's shots, I'd love to know how he had cameras set and how he converted them.
