Nikon D100 review

To create a review, I bought this camera here.

The Nikon D100 was introduced on January 21.01.2002, 1 and became the fourth full-fledged digital SLR camera from Nikon (after Nikon DXNUMX, D1H, D1X).

Nikon D100

Nikon D100. The camera is shown with a lens. Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm 1: 1.4D

Matrix

The Nikon D100 uses an APS-C sensor to form an image that is exactly the same physical size as any other Nikon DX series camera, such as Nikon D500 or Nikon D7500... The large sensor size is one of the few advantages of the Nikon D100 these days.

Nikon D100 has a sensor CCD sensor Sony ICX-413-AQ, which can create an image with a maximum size of 3008 x 2000 pixels (i.e. 6 MegaPixels). This sensor is used only in the Nikon D100. At the cameras Nikon D70, D70s, D50 и D40 used very similar but still different sensor Sony ICX-453-AQ (CCD, 6 MP, 3008 x 2000).

Key features of the Nikon D100, especially its matrix, are:

  1. ability to use RAW ('.NEF') files with 12-bit color depth without compression. Subsequent cameras Nikon D70, D70s, D50 и D40 could use RAW files only with compression (like all models amateur and advanced amateur cameras to this day). One RAW (NEF) image weighs without compression 10 MB.
  2. ability to use format TIFF (without compression, 8 bits per channel, 24 bit color). This format is not supported by cameras Nikon D70, D70s, D50 и D40 (as with all models amateur and advanced amateur line) The format avoids data loss that occurs during the formation of JPEG images (JPEG FINE uses 1: 4 compression). Unlike the RAW format, the TIFF format is the same displayed in any third-party image processors (Lightroom, ACR, etc.) and does not require a camera profile. True, recording a picture in TIFF format takes about 25 seconds (the time does not depend on the speed or size of the memory card). One TIFF image weighs about 17 MB
  3. ability to expand ISO base range to ISO HI-1equivalent to ISO 3200. и ISO HI-2equivalent to ISO 6400. (TOP Nikon D1 can do the same, Nikon D1h, Nikon D2h and Nikon D2hs). The amazing thing is that the subsequent model Nikon D200, which appeared 3 years later, had a basic maximum ISO threshold, the same as the Nikon D100, which was all the same 1600 units. And here is the extended ISO range for Nikon D200 became lower (regression). Camera Nikon D200 could only use ISO HI-1, equivalent to the value of ISO 3200. More surprising is the fact that Nikon D300and later Nikon D300s used the extended ISO HI-1 value, which is equivalent to the same ISO 6400 value. Only the ISO 6400 level could be overcome Nikon D3100 (among Nikon DX Cropped Camera Series), which appeared already in 2010 (8 years after the Nikon D100). Situation with Nikon D1x, Nikon D2x и Nikon D2xs Even worse, these cameras are much newer Nikon D100, but their base maximum ISO threshold is only 800 units (2 times lower than that of Nikon D100), and the maximum extended threshold is only 3200 (ISO HI-2).
  4. large or, as it is also called, bold pixel. The Nikon D100 sensor has a low pixel density (the same as Nikon D70, D70s, D50 и D40) Density comparable to full-frame cameras such as Nikon D700, D3, D3s и Kodak DCS PRO 14n... The large pixel makes it easy to get sharp images even from 'weak' lenses. True, on-camera JPEG with Nikon D100 does not shine in sharpness and it is best to use RAW format for maximum detail.
  5. Nikon D100 is the only early model camera that uses full mechanical shutter. Shutter for similar 6 MP models Nikon D70, D70s, D50, D40as well as Nikon D1 models, D1h, D1x uses a combined mechanical and electronic shutter (the first curtain is electronic, the second is mechanical).
  6. the D100 sensor is really not like that Nikon D70, D70s, D50 и D40. This is easily recognized by the total amount. pixels (subpixels) from the instructions. Nikon D100 has 6.31 million pixels / subpixels, Nikon D70, D70s, D50 и D40 has 6.24 million pixels / subpixels. Most likely the same sensor as the Nikon D100, or slightly modified, is used in cameras Konica Minolta Dynax 7D (she Konica Minolta Alpha 7D и Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D) and Konica Minolta Dynax 5D (she Konica Minolta Alpha Sweet Digital и Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D) and Pentax * ist D, Pentax * ist Ds, Pentax * ist DS2 и Samsung GX-L1 (copy of Pentax * ist DL2), Samsung GX-1S (copy of Pentax * ist DS2), Epson r-d1, Epson r-d1s, Epson r-d1x, Epson r-d1xg
  7. pixels on the Nikon D100 sensor may stop working over time, from which they appear broken or hot pixels. Non-working pixels can appear at any ISO value and any value. excerpts. This ailment is automatically masked by popular RAW converters (ACR, Lightroom, etc.). This ailment affects all Nikon cameras built on the basis of the CCD sensor.
  8. color space first appeared in the camera sRBG III... Turns on in Shootin Menu-> Color Mode-> III III (sRGB) -> OK. Allows you to get more saturated colors, which is useful for shooting nature, landscapes. Preceding cameras Nikon D1X, D1H had only two color spaces I (sRBG) and II (ADOBE RGB). The first mode gives natural color without color shifts and should be well suited for all types of photography, including portrait photography. The second mode has a wider color gamut and is useful for further processing by experienced users (if you do not know what ADOBE RGB is, do not use it at all, this recommendation applies to all digital cameras)
  9. Nikon D100 uses a sensor created by technology CCD (CCD). This technology is outdated. It was replaced by CMOS sensors (the first camera with a CMOS matrix - Nikon D2xSeptember 2004). The last camera with a CCD sensor has become Nikon D3000, presented in July 2009 and discontinued in 2010. It is believed that despite its archaic nature, CCD sensors have very good color reproduction, which is appreciated by some amateur photographers. On this topic, I advise you to look into the review Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro (Super CCD SR II sensor).
  10. Yes long exposure noise reduction... CSM MENU-> 4 Long Exp. NR-> F4 Long Exposure Noise Reduction-> ON ON-> OK. With the function enabled, the camera will subtract noise for each shot, but only if excerpt will be 1/2 c or more (long excerpts, from which such a name of the function). Noise subtraction time is done using an additional shot with the same shutter speed and with the same ISO value, but with the shutter completely closed (it might seem that nothing is happening, since there is no standard shutter release). Eventually double shot time... During the additional shot and noise subtraction, the prompt 'JOB NR' blinks on the monochrome display (noise reduction work in progress). When this function is enabled frame buffer halved.
  11. Nikon D100 requires a Nikon MB-D100 battery grip to clean the sensor. The menu item responsible for raising the mirror to clean the matrix on the camera without the battery handle is inactive. This is a serious inconvenience. True, in service centers the matrix is ​​cleaned without a battery handle.

The ISO base range is 200-1600 units in 1/3 steps. The maximum basic ISO equal to 1600 units is used by all cameras on the CCD-sensor: Nikon D1, D1h, D1x, D100, D50, D70, D70s, D40, D200, D80, D40x, D60, D3000 and all cameras on the JFET-LBCAST-sensor: Nikon D2H, D2Hs. Thus, I want to emphasize that the Nikon D1 and D100 immediately set a high bar for two or three generations of cameras.

Basic properties

  • Nikon D100 is based on a film camera from which the Nikon D100 has a large full-frame mirror and part of the body design
  • for JVI the camera uses a pentaprism
  • focus module 5 points, exactly the same as the Nikon D50, D70, D70s
  • silicon metering module, on 10 segments. Only Nikon D100 from all Nikon central control centers uses this module, it is the most primitive, but at the same time there are no problems with exposure
  • the display is only 1.8 inches and 118.000 dots. View the captured material on the display is extremely difficult
  • Nikon D100 has a focus motor and will work correctly with non-motorized lenses
  • excerpt from 30 to 1/4000 seconds. Unfortunately, at ISO 200 (the lowest possible ISO value for the camera) is the shortest excerptsequal to 1/4000 of a second may not be enough when using high-aperture optics and bright lighting
  • flash synchronization is only possible with shutter speeds up to 1/180 s (if you use the step exposure 1/2 steps) or 1/160 s (if using a step exposure 1/3 steps). Of course not high speed sync modeas well as no mode automatic remote control of external flashes through built-in
  • The Nikon D100 only supports older D-TTL external flash units. The new I-TTL flashes will not work (or will not work in all modes).
  • the built-in flash can be operated in manual 'M' flash control mode, but in this mode only full flash output is always available (cannot be set to 1/2, 1/4, etc.)
  • the Nikon D100 uses the same battery as the Nikon D70, D70s, D50. Also, in the Nikon D100, you can use the battery from D80, D90, D200, D300, D300s, D700 (but not vice versa)
  • no diaphragm rheostat, and, as a result, there is no measurement exposure with manual optics. This is the only camera in this line that does not have such a function.
  • no RAW + JPEG simultaneous shooting function
  • Nikon D100 supports CF cards of any size, but on capacious memory cards (more than 16 GB), the camera can only use about 3 GB of memory, which allows you to place about 300 RAW files without compression or 900 JPEG files with a maximum quality of 'Fine' and a maximum size of 'L'. I recommend using memory cards up to 2 GB2 GB CF memory cards Nikon D100 works fine, cards with a capacity of 4 GB or more are formatted and initialized for a very long time when the camera is turned on / wake up). Important: a camera with 1.x firmware can only work with memory cards up to 2 GB; to work with more capacious memory cards, firmware 2.0 is required.
  • the camera has an additional monochrome display with which you can quickly configure the camera
  • insufficiently thought-out system for changing ISO, BW, image quality and focus method, which is located on the shooting control mode dial (on the drive where PASM modes). Configuring a separate parameter is simple, but you need to constantly transfer the disk back to one of the modes PASM... If this is not done, the camera will not respond to the shutter button.
  • The Nikon MB-D100 battery pack can run on 6 AA batteries (or rechargeable batteries) or on two EN-EL3 batteries
  • there is no camera orientation sensor, as a result, pictures in portrait (vertical) mode on a computer need to be turned over (set orientation) manually.
  • there is no Russian language in the menu

Frame buffer

Nikon D100 can shoot at a maximum speed of 3 frames per second. Wherein frame buffer the camera is small.

With the shutter function off at slow shutter speeds:

  • 4 frames RAW (compression or without compression)
  • 6 TIFF frames with L / M / S size
  • 6 JPEG L frames with any Fine / Normal / Basic quality and any L / M / S size

With long exposure noise reduction function enabled:

  • 2 frames RAW (compression or without compression)
  • 3 TIFF frames with L / M / S size
  • 3 JPEG L frames with any Fine / Normal / Basic quality and any L / M / S size

The write speed to the memory card is about 6 seconds per 1 RAW file no compression (independent of speed or memory card size).

Compressed RAW files are 4-5 megabytes in size. The compression method is set in the camera menu: MENU-> Shooting Menu-> Image Quality-> NEF (RAW) -> RAW NEF (RAW) -> OK. Compressed RAW (NEF) photographs use lossless algorithm.

Important: Nikon D100 records RAW files with compression for a very long time (about 40 seconds per file). The recording speed is little dependent on the speed of the memory card. Most likely, such a slow recording of compressed data is due to the fact that the weak Nikon D100 processor compresses the data for a very long time. Files without compression are written about 5 times faster

Sample Photos

All photos below were taken with a lens. YONGNUO 40mm 1: 2.8 (model YN40mm F2.8N).

My experience

The Nikon D100 is a nice old camera, but unfortunately it is very outdated.

Getting the finished result right away in JPEG from Nikon D50, D70, D70s cameras is much easier.. In general, the Nikon D70 / D70s can do the same thing as the Nikon D100, but in addition they also have a better display, a shorter minimum shutter speed (1/8000 s), support modern I-TTL flashes, can remotely control external flash units through Nikon CLS, have much more settings for adjusting image quality, shoot in RAW + JPEG mode, digest memory cards with large volumes well, have a camera orientation sensor (horizontal / vertical), write data to memory cards faster, weigh easier, cost less to clean sensors do not require a battery pack, excerpt synchronization with the flash is much lower (1/500 s), are easier to set up and operate, show the shutter speed, have a larger frame buffer, have a better exposure metering module ... and many more little things.

I would recommend Nikon D100 only to fans to dig deeper into RAW files from a CCD matrix.

I recommend to look at the section 'Legends go to battle'. Prices for modern Nikon cameras in popular stores can look at this link.

Results

Nikon D100 - An interesting instance of the camera from those times when camera building was only gaining momentum. Nowadays it’s very easy to find many flaws in the Nikon D100, since now the most unpretentious amateur cameras have gone far ahead in their development. In any case, the Nikon D100 can please with its picture and the fact that the camera has been around for many years, and it has been working and working, does it a great honor.

Comments: 147, on the topic: Review of Nikon D100

  • Alexey

    Thanks for your review. did not expect to meet such an ancient apparatus! relatively d 40 - in conjunction with a manual lens, you can squeeze out a juicier and sharper picture than on d 90. but the functionality of both d 100 and d 40 is significantly outdated

  • Sergey (aka Kantar)

    Thank you for the review of such a rare unit)
    I have been actively using it for more than a year, therefore, with your permission, I would like to add a couple more details:
    Of the unmentioned pluses:
    Shutter at D100 from a full-frame F80 camera with a resource of 300 thousand frames. (D70 seems to be in the region of 70-80 thousand)
    Exposure bracketing (2 or 3 frames in increments of 0.3 to 2 EV, which is not in d40.
    The presence of a preliminary lift of the mirror (which does not seem to be in D70)
    Vitality and reliability of the unit. I shot them and hiking in the mountains, and at sea, and in winter in 25 degree frost. I have never failed.
    A purely subjective impression: amateur devices such as d3000-d3100, kenon 450d and 500d somehow do not hold solidly in the hands ... plastic trinkets. And here is a solid, male apparatus. Albeit old)

    Of the serious (as for me) flaws I add:
    there is no connector for the remote control (like the d200), and there is no receiver for the IR remote control like the D70. The remote control is only available with a bat-block (the presence of which by the way I consider a plus).
    a histogram of only one (if I'm not mistaken, then green) RGB channel. Which means partially lying.
    With the rest, in principle, with straight arms you can put up)

    I completely agree that today it is already an outdated device, and it can only be attributed to amateur ... but there are several BUTs.
    The first thing that captivates this device is the price. Now it is in excellent condition, as they say, "the fly did not sit", you can take it for 2000 UAH (250 dl.). At the same time, we have a “screwdriver” (for old inexpensive AF glasses), a long-lasting shutter, exposure bracketing, and no automatic or preset modes (such as Portrait, Landscape, Sunset, etc.) - an ideal option for a beginner photographer with limited means I am). When I was choosing my first DSLR, I was choosing between D40 and D100 (similar in price, D70 was more expensive). For me, d100 turned out to be in many ways preferable and interesting ... namely because of the screwdriver (I immediately bought Nikkor 50 / 1.8D, and then over time Tamron 17-50 / 2.8 and Nikkor 70-210 / 4) and bracketing (I often shoot landscapes, evening city ​​and interiors with light sources). Well, the weight and dimensions turned out to be a plus for me - I confidently hold it in my hands))
    So I think you shouldn't write it off like that. In order to learn how to shoot, to understand the beauty of photography, to feel complete control over the shooting process - it will do)
    I have many friends running around with kenons 550d or nikons d3000 / 3100 - and the pictures are obtained as if from a soap dish. And they often ask me how I manage to squeeze out such pictures from my 6MP)

    Sorry for flooding. If interested, I can send you examples of photos taken with this device (there are landscapes, and portraits, and genre)

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Thanks for the helpful comments, I'm only for! for such a constructive addition. I have a similar conclusion that the Nikon D100 can still please with its picture. Personally, I also still use the 6MP D40 camera. I’ll also add that there is another glitch that the mode dial can turn off and go astray. With four D4 D100 my friend had a wheel buggy.

      • Sergey (aka Kantar)

        Another small addition ... I forgot to mention yesterday)
        I won't say anything about the mode selection wheel - it works perfectly for me.
        But there is a standard Nikon's sore, swelling "elastic bands" of the case. Over time, the compartment with the yusb and in-out connectors (the one under the left hand) ceased to close due to the increase in the elastic band in size. As experts from Nikon assured - this is because real rubber is used, and it absorbs either moisture or fats from the fingers.
        I know that a similar problem occurs on d200 and d300 and even d700. But even here the D100 stood out ... On the mentioned models there is rubber on the case cover as well. And over time, it also swells and peels off (especially under the right hand), which greatly spoils the appearance. And the D100 case is made of special plastic, and screwed on with screws)
        Another interesting feature of the D100 is the ability to create and load your own curves (Curves). (now I use different optics, including the old manual ones - and when shooting in a jeep, this function is very useful)

        • alexey

          can i use old soviet optics with d100?

          • Arkady Shapoval

            yes, it is possible, in more detail how to do this in my article Soviet Optics

        • Do_Oraemon

          It may be useful for someone: if the rubber bands covering the connectors are swollen and the compartments have stopped closing, then remove them and put them in medical alcohol for an hour. Take out and let dry for XNUMX hours. After that, they sit like new ones in their places. I also met a more cruel version with gasoline for lighters and "Galoshes", but in my opinion this is already too much. And the smell ... Therefore, the variant with alcohol is the most digestible. If the gum is still larger than necessary, dip it in alcohol for a while. That is, the longer you keep it in alcohol, the more it shrinks when drying. Thus, he himself restored several plugs on the cameras and a couple of rubber rings on the lenses. There is another option - a special rubber reducer, but it still needs to be found.

    • Kostjan

      A little adjustment.
      Since the D100 is drunk on the basis of the F80, its shutter has the resource of an amateur film SLR, which is about 500 films, that is, 18000 frames.
      I must say that the official resource of amateur cameras was then categorically not disclosed, but the top F5 had a resource of 150000 operations, and the figure of 300000 appeared already in the relatively recent past and only again on top cameras.
      The resource of amateur digital cameras was about 50000, until Nikon officially announced the increased resource of the D3000 - 100000.

      • anonym

        Hello. Today I talked with the girl about buying the D100. I have been using it for 5 years, but the device itself since 2002. Is it worth taking? You claim that the resource is 18000. How many hosts have been since 2002 and how many staff have been made, God knows, it’s possible something to know the number of frames? And is it true, some write that they have a mileage of 300000 thousand?

        • anonym

          I read, they write that they take care of 300000 and 500000 thousand. But you can’t determine the mileage in any way, there is no frame counter. Purely by intuition.

        • Arkady Shapoval

          No way. The mirror there is from the filmmaker, not designed for 300.000. And this is not the class of camera that is designed for 300.000. The same d200 (next model) is designed only for 100.000.

    • Ed

      I would like to clarify about the D-100: I have it, then the question is in using the D100 compactflash card, namely: up to how many GB (sees) the fotik? what cards can i use? (like 133x, 166x, ... .. 60 mb / s, ultra II, some other? maybe I'm asking the wrong questions, excuse me, I'm still a kettle in these matters.

  • Vasil

    It is possible to help with a vibrator of a mirror. In exchange, you can take the Canon EOS 350D, Canon EOS 10D, Canon EOS 30D, Nikon D40, Nikon D50, Nikon D100, which is a good one for them. I want vikoristovuvaty gladyanku optics. To help me, I’m getting lost too.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      For Soviet opity I would take 30D

  • Vasil

    I pressed the loan, right now I sold the 30D, too, I’m vibrating to solve, then can you please?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      All cameras are very outdated. Would take a Canon 10D or 350D of these.

  • Vasil

    Yakshcho can then be short of special features, plus skin models, minusi (Canon 10D, Canon 350D)

    • Arkady Shapoval

      I did not hold 350D in my hands. 10D is more "older" model, and 350d is an amateur one. I can't say anything else.

  • Vasil

    Clear. Dyakuyu, they helped us through the game :)

  • Vasil

    Is there still more food like a vikristovuvati right now optics a camera will be shortened (Canon EOS 350D, Canon EOS 10D, Canon EOS 30D, Nikon D40, Nikon D50, Nikon D100)?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      350d and 30d, as modern optics can normally allow an 8mp sensor.

  • Vasil

    It’s clear, now the nibi is all zasuvav, scho hot_v :)

  • Vasil

    Here they squealed the Sony Alpha A300 + kit 18-55, what can you say for this camera? For example, in portions of the Canon EOS 30D, 10D?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      C Sony did not come across. Can not say anything/

  • Vasil

    Zrozumіlo :)

  • mist forever

    Hello, the camera is cool, but outdated "morally" is right to the point, but I like the pictures, I have it for 2 years (though not particularly active), there are no problems with rubber bands, but it happens with a wheel, but I would not say that at least Once a glitch in a photo hunt prevented me. The fact that it is heavy is yes, how to wear it for days and get a dozen good shots, not particularly delighted with such walks. I worked with a fifty dollar 1.4d as for me it is generally lovely. I want to try Soviet lenses, but after reading that there won't be a lot of things, now I'm thinking.
    And how can you take off a couple of pictures?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      You will find mail in Contacts.

  • Paul

    Good afternoon! I cannot understand the following. Should the shutter speed on d100 be that slow? I press the button to take pictures. he thinks for a second, then photographs. My son will run away in a second to another room ... I also tried to shoot 3 frames per second. It turns out that he simply takes pictures endlessly in a row. 1 frame 1 second, if not more….
    Here's a question for the professionals. is this a feature of the camera, or is it a malfunction.? I like the camera, but this moment is annoying, and I don't want to change it because of this nuance ... Thank you!

    • Arkady Shapoval

      See if there is a shutter lag in the menu and whether the timer mode is on.

  • anonym

    d70 or d100? which is better to choose? and what is the advantage of one or the other, thanks.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      D70 can control flashes, otherwise they are very similar, they have the same matrix.

      • Oleg

        The matrix of the D100 is different (better), the focusing system with sensors is different from F80 (better), the Copal shutter, similar but not from F80, RAW (better). And who told you that the plastic case, it is metal. Regarding the reasoning that there are few functions, do you need a camera? or a harvester like the iPhone? I had a lot of digital cameras, and now I have a full-frame excellent camera, but there is also a Nikon D100 which I respect with respect, it deserves it, believe me. New does not mean good, look at how much crap is on the market now, of course there is good, but it costs completely different money.

        • Arkady Shapoval

          If not difficult, describe why and why the d100 has a different matrix.

          • Oleg

            On the D100 and on the D70,40,50 Sony sensors, but the models by article number are different. The D100 sensor is also used on digital cameras for telescopes. A wider dynamic range is needed there.

            • Arkady Shapoval

              link source?

        • Alexander

          Hello Oleg! In pioneering youth he was engaged in a photo. Lately there have been cyber shot soap dishes.
          I bought myself a d100 carcass the other day. Do not tell me how from with glass 18-105? And he came by the way with a tamron 35-70.
          Sincerely, Alexander

  • alexey

    d70 or d100? What is better to choose and what are the main differences ?, thanks.

  • R'RёS,R ° F "RёR№

    I noticed an interesting feature on the D100, I did not see a description on the Internet, when installing manual lenses (G-44-2 through an adapter without a lens and a dandelion, G-81N and the old Nikon's 28 mm manual from a film camera), focus confirmation works, that is, the viewfinder in the lower left corner the focus indicator without a dandelion lights up, which helps to focus on manual lenses. Moreover, all three of the above always correctly confirms the focus!))) Interestingly, has no one noticed this feature before and everyone uses dandelions?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      This has long been noticed, and all Nikon cameras have confirmation. You will find more details in the AI-S section and Soviet lenses. Sorry, the d100 does not measure exposure with manual lenses.

  • Dima

    Tell me, what is better to buy, D40 or D100? There is very little money and there are two Soviet lenses. Thanks in advance

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Better than the Nikon D40, it's lighter and the display is bigger.

      • Oleg

        The D40 doesn't have that precise autofocus and no screwdriver

  • Zal

    Please tell me that it is better to buy a D100 with a sigma lens (3x optical zoom) or D3100. Thanks!!!

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Better than the D3100, as it is a newer camera.

    Hello everyone))) I recently bought a Nikon D100, when I picked it up I could not get enough of it)))) At first, the pictures turned out to be no (((I already kind of got drunk right now and the pictures are cool ... but I want to expand a little, the question is whether the lens will fit) 50mm 1.8 for portrait shots ??? or which is better to take ??

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Yes, it does. If something is better, then you need to look towards 85tok and 135tok.

  • Camir

    what if budget constraints are currently ??

    • Arkady Shapoval

      If limited, you can look at options with manual focus.

  • Camir

    and another question)) I still did not understand at poltiynik there is a zoom or is it still not there ?! one is simple one says the other is different))) but in the internet I won’t find an explanatory description)))) or I don’t understand))) PS although I don’t understand much)))))

  • Oleg

    Hello everyone, I have a NIKNO D100, I don’t know what, but he already put it on me. This is a NIKON camera that costs a lot of lenses and is low. But at night I don’t want to shoot anyone who wants to? I'm changing my 100d to canon 400d my number is +37477372383
