Now that the D7100 has been shipping for a while, isn't it time the forum name was updated to include it?

I agree.

Let's call it "my mom said I take good pictures, so I decided to buy a DSLR and become a 'photographer', and then speculate about the next DSLR, and give bad advice, all so that I can hear my own voice within a wash of bland people" forum.

Always sitting on the fence, leaving people wondering what you really think.....

Seriously though...the forum's name encompasses all 3xxx through to 7xxx, so all models are catered for including D7100. Until an 8000 comes out we're all set...

If you joined a PHOTOGRAPHY forum, and you're worried about a header, you most likely shouldn't have joined a PHOTOGRAPHY forum.  A GEAR forum MIGHT be better.

Maybe...

Time to just have a Nikon DX forum and another FX forum I think
In reply to David A. Hamments, Apr 3, 2013

No other sensible alternatives...Best I can come up with is

- Nikon cameras that cost less than $x

- Nikon D-0 and D--00 models.

Better yet lets use a regular expression shall we? I'm a little rusty on regex....does this pattern work to exclude Dxxx range?

D[1..9]([0..9][0..9])?[0..9]

I would prefer seperate groups. One for:

D3xxx - D5xxx

D40-D90

D7xxx

D100-D300

Steve.

Its no fun having to sift though all the chatter to find topics on one model.

How about . . .

Nikon Consumer DX

Nikon Pro DX

Nikon FX

and

Nikon New Release

That way the hot pixel, oil spottiing, color mangement, and focus issues and other discussions on the latest camera would have a seperate forum. Add to the description speculation about the next release and it would be perfect.

Probably not high on the dp priority list at the moment, with the testing of said camera, and I think D5200 still going on.

Innovative, kind of like throwing all the misbehaving kids into a room by themselves and letting them duke it out.

Although many people got their panties in a twist a little while back when the forum was called "Consumer".  Apparently it's offensive...

You DO know where You are, right? If there ever was at gear oriented photo-forum, this is it. The fact that it is split into camera models, rather than photographic issues, might be a pointer...

Ah yes..memories of the whine from times past...I've been offended before, and being called a consumer didn't rank high on that list.
