Nikon D7100

Nikon D7100 was created by Paul T
I have been using the Nikon D7100 for the last couple of months for my macro trips but have not been able to fully look at the files. This was because I use Apple Aperture and Apple had not released a RAW convertor for the D7100 files, until a couple of days ago.

I am finally getting to see the files.

The camera itself was an easy adoption for me because I was already using the Nikon D7000 for macro. For macro shooting there is no great difference between the cameras, the control dial has changed slightly and theres an increase in file size - other than that, for me, theres no real difference for what I do. I wanted to upgrade from the D7000 for one reason - 24 MPx versus 16 Mpx. It would allow me greater cropping flexibility in post, while still being able to retain a large file size.

I had also hoped that Nikon would increase the buffer size (i.e. the amount of pics you can take in a short time). Unfortunately, Nikon chose to not do anything about this and it is still a royal pain in the a***. Its infuriating, you have a great bug in your view finder, you are clicking away and then.....nothing. The buffer is full and you have to sit and wait till it clears before you can take any more pictures. For this reason alone I am convinced that Nikon will release another APC-S sensor camera "above" the D7100 in the future. The rumoured Nikon D400.

The autofocus on the D7100 is slightly better and I felt it was more accurate when I used it. Which is not very often. It could autofocus quite well in low light, definitely better than the D7000 but not earth shatteringly so.

All that aside, what are the photos like? Well I have to say that I am happy with the results. There is no visible difference in file quality to my eye over the D7000 but the additional Mpx gives you that extra "reach", that extra bit of stand off distance when it is needed. Worth the upgrade? Good question. Financially no. But its a hobby so if it gives me an additional keeper or two I will be happy.

Some of the "keepers" so far......................

The beautiful Papilio demoleus demoleus.....

Jonathan's Creobroter elongata...

An unknown Damselfly...

Wolf spider, Lycosidae....
