Hi, I become in trouble. I am a canon user. I was planning to buy Nikon D7000. But when I see the spec of new Nikon D7100, I decided to go for D7100. I am from Qatar, and the Nikon D7100 still not available here.
So I try to buy through online. And I place the order in Adorama, and I got the camera in 4 days. I open the packet and switch on the camera, I get shocked. It,s not working. I think may be the problem with the battery. I went to Nikon authorized Dealer and try with another battery. Unfortunately the problem with the camera. I sent an email to adorama about this matter, and they give a quick responds. Yesterday they agree to arrange a two way shipping to exchange the camera, and I am waiting for the International prepaid shipping Label.
I check on internet about the similar case, but it,s an odd incident.
I don,t know how its happened and what to do now.

sarojkumarss, what to do is wait for the replacement camera to arrive, this brand new camera should have worked right from the box.

Frankie, nobody is forcing you to switch cameras. The known figures about buffer depth so far are only on paper, wait for the actual tests to make an opinion on this please :)
And if you really need more than 3-4 seconds of buffer, there are cameras that will do this job fine, but for most even just 1 or 2 seconds (6-12 frames) is plenty of photos to get what they look for, so buy what fits your needs.


Who is talking about forcing anybody ? This is a strange way of putting it ?

Take a break with such, please

We are talking about a new model, and compare honestly to the older model and we were many who hoped, that the buffer was better in the new model, because that was one of the weak points, but it is not - it is in fact slower because the developement in the pixels has not been followed up.

And I have mentioned the 1,3 crop.

With the new D71000 being less influenced by an anti-aliasing filter, should I expect pics to be sharper/show more detail than the D7000?

While normally viewing pictures I see a difference, but that could be bias :D But if you pixel-peep it is noticeably sharper. It's not just the low pass filter, it's the resolution as well I believe. But that's just the stuff everyone's talking about :)

If I had the money I'd probably upgrade from my D7000. But since I don't, I'll happily skip a generation or two :D I'm still very much in love with my D7000 :D

Only reason i'm asking is, i've had mine for 3 weeks & although I haven't been able to get out `birding`, my shots seem no better (maybe worse) than my D7000? :(

I've seen some excellent images posted around & i'm not trying to knock the camera in any way, but I'm struggling with it tbh.
I know technique is everything & mine won't be perfect, but, my d7000 produced sharper images. :?

The 3 pics below can't really be compared to each other (i wish I had my D7000 to take comparative shots) but they give an idea of what i'm getting.

Any ideas/tips guys?

#1; D7100. 300mm F2.8 lens, 1/2000th sec, F5.6, ISO 640
From about 10mts away, hand-held braced against a wall, VR off.

#2; D7100. 300mm F2.8 lens, 1/1250th sec, F5.6, ISO 1250
From about 10mts away, hand-held braced against a wall, VR off.

jpg SOOC
.Image


#3; D7000. 300mm F2.8 lens + 1.7TC, 1/640th sec, ISO 1250 @ 6.3.
From about 4mts away. Hand-held, VR active.

I have to say the robin you recently posted in the bird section was much sharper and with greater saturation of the colours. It looks like you stripped the EXIF from it in flickr so I could not see your setting or what camera you used

Did you increase the sharpening and/or saturation in the 7000 setting.

Cheers

Are you using the same picture settings on both cameras? Was the D7000 on Vivid picture settings and the D7100 on Neutral?

Do you have the EXIF data for a comparable subject taken with the D7000 and the D7100? Did you shoot RAW + JPEG or JPEG only? Did you check the RAW files (if available) to see if they look different without processing?

I tried to keep the setting in camera the same (from memory) as my previous D7000 & had sharpening up a tad.

The robin posted above was SOOC, whereas the one on flickr has been in PS E10

I took 2 pics of a bag of compost from about 5mts away. #1 was +8 fine-tune & #2 was fine-tune off.

These are crops of the central focus areas to compare.

And now the news you were waiting for: our Nikon D7100 review is now complete! You can see exactly how the quality compares to both the D5200 and D7000...

Let me know what you think!

You are right i have been waiting for this. :lol:

I think below (marked in bold and red) is a typo.

Quote:
o be fair, most of the specifications are now comfortably beyond that of the D300s, but the D7000 is firmly in the enthusiast rather than semi-pro category.

Shouldn't that be the D7100?

Second typo?

Quote:
n EFFECTS bage appears to let you know you're in Effects mode, which is only otherwise obvious in Live view and there's also a badge and a cropped area frame to help you compose shots when in the 1.3x crop mode.

I think that should be badge.
