The Digital Journalist
14 October 2004
  • Excerpt: The introduction of the new D100 digital camera by Nikon is a welcome addition for those who have been looking to go digital without spending thousands of dollars for the line's top-end cameras. Nikon sent us a D100 at The Digital Journalist and I was able to compare the camera to its more costly siblings.

DP Review
5 June 2004
  • Conclusion: Nikon started the current D-SLR revolution. Yes, we saw digital SLR's before the D1 but that camera in particular was a breakthrough. It broke down price barriers and announced the fact that the traditional camera manufacturers were serious about producing their own digital SLR's. No longer tied to Kodak's digital back Nikon's designers produced a serious camera in a small(er), more robust body, excellent image quality and at a price which turned the D-SLR world on its...
  • Pros: Excellent resolution, good colour, tonal balance tends to be more 'contrasty', Superb 3D matrix metering, Selection of output colour space (however JPEG files not tagged correctly), Very nice ergonomics, good feel, balance and control layout, Wide selection of ISO sensitivities, all the way up to ISO 6400 equiv., Low noise in JPEG images up to ISO 800, more noise visible in RAW converted images, Very fast operation, instant power up and no delays in menus or playback,...
  • Cons: Lacking in-camera sharpening leads to 'soft' looking images (to keep noise down?), Internal / external D-TTL flash metering problem, Higher noise levels from images converted from RAW through Nikon Capture 3, Nikon View Editor RAW conversion has limited functionality (NC3 required for full control), JPEG files not tagged with correct colour profile when color mode II selected, No onboard PC Sync flash socket (req. optional adapter), Awkward ISO selection on mode dial,...

Nikon D100

PC Magazine
4 May 2004
  • Excerpt: It's easy to mistake the Nikon D100 ($2,000 street) for a film camera. From the front, the 6.1-megapixel D100 is a dead ringer for the Nikon N80, a midrange 35-mm SLR. But one look at the rear panel will tell you there's no place for Kodachrome. At 1 pound 9 ounces (plus lens and battery), the D100 isn't exactly a lightweight, but it weighs a little more than half as much as the Nikon D1x pro model.

  • Excerpt: Every few months I have the enviable task of reviewing expensive digital SLRs. The latest one here at the DCRP Labs is the Nikon D100 ($1999), which has a whopping 6.1 Megapixel CCD and every manual control you could dream of.0. Bank Select (A, B) - you can have two sets of custom settings 1. Image review (on/off) - whether image is shown on LCD after it is taken 2. No CF card? (on/off) - sets if you can still release the shutter w/o a CF card inserted 3.
  • Pros: SLR-style camera body, Very good photo quality, Great shot-to-shot, focus, shutter lag speeds, Very low noise, even at high ISOs, Every manual control ever conceived, CompactFlash Type II slot -- Microdrive works great, Handy backlit LCD info display, Can use existing Nikon lenses and Speedlights, Cheapest D-SLR at the moment
  • Cons: It's still expensive, especially once you start buying lenses, Images soft at JPEG, auto sharpening setting, Underexposed most of my images at 0.0EV, Not easy to learn (but easier than D1X), USB rather than FireWire, Nikon Capture should be free with this $2000 camera!

Digital Camera Magazine

  • Summary: Sturdy and easy to use, this camera’s been around a while but still performs solidly. The resolution is good, with good contrast, accurate colour rendition and minimal noise even at higher ISOs.The menu system is well organised but the post-view image display could be faster, especially with TIFFs.

  • Excerpt: ZAKAJ TA TEST? Digitalna fotografija cedalje bolj prodira v naše življenje, skupaj z njo pa se poraja cel kup dvomov in vprašanj. Ali je to prava pot? Ali se po kvaliteti lahko kosa s klasicno fotografijo? Ali se nam izplaca nakup dragega digitalnega fotografskega aparata (DSLR = Digital single lens reflex)?
