Great value for a high-quality digital SLR; fast response time; incredible battery life.
Small optical viewfinder; as with most digital SLRs, LCD doesn't work as a viewfinder.
Although it carries a high price tag for the consumer digicam world, this responsive, high-quality camera is still a good value for a digital SLR.

The Nikon D100 is an overlooked camera.
Sure, it lacks in features that the D200, 300 and 90 have, it cycles slowly, it only has 6 MP, etc. Oh and as stated by other reviews, the screen on the back is inaccurate and the image is always slightly over or underexposed than it really is.
However, once you figure out how to use it, it's a solid workhorse that's great to shoot with. It takes a bit more know-how than cameras like the D40, D50 and the D70, but then again practicing and relying less on auto functions make you a much better photographer.
- I shoot a lot of low-light/evening photography and do not go over ISO 800, which might be a drawback for some folks (and is for me, but that just means I need a tripod or need to think about my images more)
- Bracketing is a good idea if you're concerned about the inaccurate screen - just turn on the bracketing function and set the shutter to continuously fire 3 or 4 shots
- The feel/weight of the camera is great - much like nicer pro slrs
- Find a lens with as much aperture as possible (can get pricey, but the Nikkor 50mm 1.8 AF is cheap and suits it very well)
- I shoot in JPEG and am content with how the images come out on "fine"
- Don't get bent out of shape with MP, 6 is fine if the rest of the exposure/subject matter/focus equation is balanced correctly.
Have fun with it! It's so cheap nowadays, just get out there and learn how to be a better photographer! If it gets damaged or stolen it's cheap to replace!
The D100 is a fantastic camera that holds it's own against modern cameras with regards to image quality.
I purchased this camera as a second camera to compliment images taken with my Nikon D200.
There are a few problems with the D100 that make correct exposure difficult to obtain. The image screen displays images that look overexposed though the image is actually is underexposed. The histogram will sometimes show a flat line indicating little or no detail. As a wedding photographer is find it best to use the flashing overexposure warning and find I can achieve best exposures is a small amount of the Bride's dress is flashing overexposed. I shoot in RAW so I can bring back a little bit of lost detail.
Once it is understood how to achieve correct exposure images stand up well against the D200, and once images have been re-sized you cannot tell the difference in quality. Don't mistake it the D100 shoots superb quality images, once you learn how to use it.
The D100 has no sink port unless you combine it with the vertical grip.
The camera works well in aperture priority, and TTL mode works well also.
The D100 has nowhere near the number of features as the D200. It will take an AI lens, but you can only shoot on full manual mode. I use manual focus AI lenses that will work great on the D200 in aperture priority, so I use the D200 to meter exposures then copy settings into the D100.
Both the D100 and the D200 are fantastic cameras but neither one has low noise quality at high ISO as with cameras like the D300. To get great results you need to be a better photographer. If you are a beginner you probably should avoid using a D100 as it is unlikely you will get image quality you are happy with. If you can shoot well with the D100 you can say you are a good photographer.
D100, unlike some of the cheaper and newer cameras takes the old Auto-focus lenses. The 24mm 2.8D, 50mm 1.4, and the 80-200mm and a D100, I gave to my sisters 7 year old daughter that is very computer literate. At 6.1 megapix, 200 ISO, and set to fine, it is capable of making poster size prints. It does not take the Manual Focus lenses Ai, Ai-s, or modified non-Ai where as the top Nikon D200, and full frame D700 will. If you have the money I advise a D200, I use my D100 only as a backup or in places I might lose a camera. The D200 & D700 take the Manual 50mm 1.2, 105mm 1.8 and the modified non-Ai 55mm 3.5 macro that are my 3 favorite lenses. The D100, if you are an advanced shooter, works well with a ttl flash cord that allows you to flash down and to the side and off of colorful objects to give natural color casts to the photos but does not have the small flash connection on the side to set off two flashes at once. The D100 also does not zoom in as much on the back screen to check focus if you're planning to do poster size shots. At $200 the D100 with a $100 24mm 2.8D lens is an outstanding camera.
I have been collecting digital cameras, and recently I stumbled upon Nikon D-series cameras. I started out with D50, which is an entry level made in Thailand camera. It works so well, that I began to look up D-series, mostly D1, D1H and D1X. And meanwhile I placed a bid on D100 on eBay. I could not be happier with it. Comparing to D1 series, it is a lot lighter, but with the manual grib, I can now take unlimited pictures, and quality is very superb, with the older Nikkor camera AF lens, I can still use all mine, and worked well with all of them.
D100 is a professional grade camera, and I recommended highly to any amateurs out there. If you do not want to play with the F/s and WB (white balance), and ISO's, then just use D50. But if you like a bit more fun, D100 is better and at east to use than D1 series. But I tell you, there is nothing like a D1X/D1H when shooting in sequence.
Over all, D100 is a fair buy for the money and it is made in Japan. The quality is truly a Nikon legend.
Ok,so, first of all, I am not a professional photographer, barely an amateur ... My experience with Nikon camera is limited only to a Nikon D50 that I got from a friend.
I am amazed at all the features this camera has. It is also very rugged and feels great in my hands, buy maybe a little bulky if I were to take it with me on a trip somewhere. For every day picture needs (Facebook mostly), my iPhone does a great job. I got this camera to use in my little studio setup to take artistic pictures for my web site. Compared with my Sony NEX VG10 and my iPhone, this camera has something different. The colors are warmer, more artistic, even if the pixel count is way lower.
In my limited experience, a Nikon camera will give you better pictures than any other consumer camera (I never tried Canon, so I can't compare it with their cameras).
One thing you must consider are the lenses, and I think you should have at least 2, one for closer pictures and one with zoom.
I had few lenses left from the Nikon D50 that I used to own, so for me that was no problem.
For web photography, the pixel count is not a huge issues as I want pages to load fast so I had to size down the other pictures anyways, but the depth of filed and color quality of this camera really makes a difference for what I need to accomplish.
