Question

D7100 Book Recommendation?

What instructional books work well for D7100, and a very- novice? The list includes David Buschs Field Guide, Photo Bert's Cheat Sheet foldout, and maybe more? One incredible book, not specific to this camera is Digital Wildlife Photography by the Gerlach's; if that happens to be your area of interest. Awesome.

Question

Why do images look different on the monitor than they do once uploaded?

After adjusting my settings, my photos look perfectly exposed on the camera monitor, but when I upload them to my computer, they are way too dark. it's an exposure issue, not a LCD brightness issue. This is extremely frustrating and I've had the camera for a year without success in changing anything.
I always shoot in manual and RAW, almost without exception. My computer is a macbook pro; both camera and computer are calibrated to sRGB color space.

When you edit raw images in the D7100 they can only be saved as a jpeg image. Press "EXE" and then "OK" to convert the file. Your only other option is to download the raw images to your Mac and make changes post processing.

Question

Display stays on when connected to HDMI Camera Monitor?

Hi All!

Something that intrigues me connecting a camera monitor via HDMI to the D7100.
While in 1080p movie mode, the on-camera display is on. While in 720p, the on-camera is off.
Is there a reason or a setting that I am missing? I thought that once I have an HDMI monitor connected to the camera, the oh-camera display should be off no matter what.
Any tips welcomed!

thanks!

Nikon Authorized Retailers are independent businesses that are authorized by Nikon USA to sell Nikon products in the US. Some of them will sell Nikon products that are imported through sources other than Nikon USA. Authorized Nikon dealers that do this - clearly mark the products as IMPORT and advise the customer that the warranty is through the dealer and not the manufacturer. These products may, in addition, be marked as 'gray market', or non–US. For more information on Gray Market products please see: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/331.

Question

Issue with rapid scroll while in playback zoom

Hi all!

So I was wondering if any of you observed this on their d7100 while viewing a photo in playback zoom.

Once I zoom in, and then keep the multiselector pressed to rapidly scroll to other areas of the photo, the navigation window goes two-three steps, then stops.

I have Ver.1.02 firmware if it helps.

Thanks!

The AF 300 f/2.8 ED-IF Lens is not listed as compatible with Nikon's current line of teleconverters.

The AF-S 80-200mm f/2.8mm lens is not compatible with the TC-14EII or the TC14-EIII. However the TC-17EII, TC-20EII, and TC20EIII can be used with this lens.

With the D7100's Selective Color Effect, all colors other than the selected color(s) are recorded in black & white. Selective Color can be enabled as a Special Effect that is applied when the photo is taken, or can be applied to existing photos using the Retouch Menu. Instructions on enabling Selective Color as a Special Effect while taking pictures please see pages 182-183 of the D7100 Reference Manual. Information on applying Selective Color to existing photos can be found on page 288-289 of the D7100 Reference Manual.

called "selective color" you create the photo. You can find the instructions on page 182 of the user manual it can be downloaded here

Never heard of a "3" error code. Is it -E-, that means there is no memory card inserted. The camera must have a memory card inserted and it is not included.

If the camera is turned off with a charged EN-EL15 battery and no memory card is inserted an [-E-] will be displayed in the control panel and in the viewfinder.

Question

Is the D7100 a good option for a beginning dslr?

I currently have the Nikon Coolpix L820 and have outgrown it's uses. I've been looking to buy my first dslr camera, and have been researching vigorously.
I was first looking to buy the Nikon D3300, but realized there where quite a few similarities to it and my current camera, and I'm afraid to spend the money and not have it be a significant step up from my point-and-shoot. I then found the D7100. I very much love what I've read, but I don't want to buy it and be waay out of my reach of understanding, but I definitely want one where I can grow into--and not out of for a while.
What should I do? Any suggestions? I love Nikon and want to get a Nikon dslr, but struggling to decide which one.
