I got this at an old job doing eBay photography and photoshop work, and it performed incredibly well. My first DSLR, and I barely scratched the surface of how to exploit its capabilities but it never let me down. Quick, solid performance if lacking a bit in the crop-ability department. Higher ISO was really quite decent, with a natural film grain look and minimal chroma noise. You can even do hot pixel remapping courtesy of a leaked Windows app! Built like a tank, great top LCD, in some ...

It's old, the sensor is old, the screen is tiny, it feels strange in my hand, but it was a great camera. In 2012, this camera isn't anything to write home about, but it's still functional. 6mp is laughable out of an APS-C sensor in today's market, but in 2004 it was CRAZY!

Great backup camera to D90, even after 8 years of development picture quality is up there with the 90. Problems: Normal wear and tear

I bought this camera off ebay for £50.00 faulty - have yet to find the fault as described in the listing - but it occasionally comes up with a white screen (menu/post view) which can sometimes be cured by resetting or just taking the bottom plate off. I think it has a dry joint on a FPC cable socket which I hope I've now cured. I am using it with a 28 to 80mm G AF Nikkor lens which to some is a cheap and nasty lens but I can honestly say this is the best digital SLR I have ever had, previous ...

I started using this camera six months ago, having previously used a Fuji S1, S2 and a Nikon D70(s). This camera has taken me a long time to grow into, but the more I use it, the more I love it. It is true that the D100 has in some respects been superceded. Today you can buy cameras with more pixels, more in-camera options, better flash systems, bigger buffers, etc. But many professionals are still using the D100, and after six months I have finally begun to understand why. A lot of myths ...

I love the D100,but you still need a good editing program to make good photos even better.

I'm satisfied with Nikon D100 digital camera. Problems: Sometimes pictures are underexposed in case of too much light (e.g. desert in sunlight or sunny snowy land), tipically when the subject is bright & homogenous. On the other hand, using higher ISO speed (over 800), in case of less light, the camera sometimes overexposes the pictures. Pictures become so flat.

Very useful at ISO 1600 with proper lighting, hard to tell from ISO 200 with Noise filter of Capture 4. Excellent Raw pictures compare to D2x or D1x.. If you only use Jpeg, maybe the D70 or Canon D20 would be better for you, Really does the job in ( RAW ) Nikon Capture 4.3 is very slow, could be upseting to some. but at the current street price around 800.00 wow put this camera in your bag you'll be glad you did, Oh the 50mm 1.8 is a great lens. for 100.00 better then the 1.4 at 270.00 ...

I have owned this camera for about a year and a half. It is reliable, solid, and produces very good images. I recently bought a D70, which is now my primary camera (I use the D100 as a backup and also whenever I need the mirror anti-shock or the vertical grip, features not available on the D70). I'm sure I would have rated this camera with all-fives if I'd rated it before getting the D70. However, the D100 is now a little long-in-the-tooth in terms of features. In particular, the Auto ...

I have owned this camera for almost 2 years and love it! I have taken it every where from Costa Rica to backpacking. I bought it with the intention of getting back into photography and re-learning the art. Having a camera that behaved like a film SLR, but with instant feedback really appealed to me, where as if I tried this using a film camera, it would probably have stayed in my closet. I am getting to the point that I would feel comfortable shooting on film and getting results I expect. It ...
