Excerpt: As a cattle ranch owner and avid photographer, I am primarily capturing our Western lifestyle. When my 300s wore out, I needed something a replacement that was comparable but just could not afford the 800, so the 7100 was the answer for me. This camera does great shooting action such as rodeos and cattle ranch activities like branding, but also great image quality for landscape or portraits.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance
Excerpt: I use this camera for events, nature and outdoor photography. I've owned it for 3 weeks and have used it for 2 events and one construction assignment.<br />Things that are great: Fast processor, very good quality photos. I take 90% of my pictures in camera RAW. However, for the construction assignment is was helpful to have the second card slot for quick JPGs to submit via Dropbox. I seldom use 'Auto' features, so easy access to camera settings is important.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: Was happy to receive the camera body 2 days early than originally arrival date. Shot an out of town wedding that very next weekend and was very please with the images in low light and the clarity as well. Looking forward to shooting some models in the coming weeks!
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
