The Nikon F100 - Enjoy the character of 35mm Film Photography!

My name is Doug Ward and I am a Professional Photographer. I do a lot of Travel and Art Photography. After a few years of using Nikon Digital SLR cameras, I wanted to do some work with film again to get a different look on my projects. So I chose the Nikon F100 35mm camera. It was designed in the late 1990's, but for it's time was "State of the Art". It operates very much like a new Nikon DSLR. It features a five-area auto focus sensor system. This will allow you to both preform focusing on high speed continuous shooting objects and on moving objects. It has focus controls for Manual, Single-Servo (Stationary Objects), and Continuous-Servo (Moving Objects). The F100 also has a 3D Matrix Metering Sensor. This will allow you to provide the correct exposure on your images. It has very comfortable controls for the Shutter (Rear: Main Command Dial) and the Aperture (Front: Sub-Command Dial). The Camera features, exposure modes such as: Programmed Auto, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority. It has a Exposure Compensation controls and is able to auto bracket each shot. The Camera even has a large LCD Screen to display the settings. Just like the new Nikon Cameras. My Nikon F100 has allowed me to produce some beautiful images. My hope is that it will also do the same for you also.Read full review...

Digital DSLR features in an analog camera

The F100 is an interesting camera with some advanced digital features – autofocus, multiple metering modes, shutter and aperature priority shooting – in a rugged film camera. They hold up well, look like every other Nikon DSLR and use common AA batteries so they're easy to "feed" while you're on the road.Read full review...

The amazingly talented F100

I've been using cameras for a very long time now, from childhood to mandatory retirement, from the ancient to the very new. I've gone from very old roll film cameras to the digital age. I have had long relations with most of the family lines of single lens reflex cameras. This started with Minolta, strayed to Pentax, then went on to Olympus. I gave Canon a real try, and finally gave my full attention to Nikon. Along the way I noticed that I was spending more time expanding and maintaining my hoard than I was putting in to using them in the field and picking out the best shots in the darkroom. This was a sublime realization for a lover of the lens as the natural response was to snag a camera bag every I went out the door. It's a dedication that is a challenge both to my image hunting grounds as well as feel for the medium. That camera bag has, not surprisingly, become smaller and lighter. It no longer holds a couple or three camera bodies, three times that number of lens, along with tasty flash toys. These days the bag holds nothing but Nikon; a body, two lenses and a small flash. I carry more if I'm shooting for the paper, but then I absolutely have to get their shots, which means a second body, lenses tailored to that format and a very flexible flash system. But, that small bag is getting more and more use, and much is owed to Nikon for developing my very favorite camera body, the F100. It has so many capabilities that I almost never find myself unable to try out another set of features, and has never managed to fail, making me call on it's twin. The shutter is precise and flexible, it takes to flash like a fish to water and uses batteries I can find anywhere. The dazzling crown for this King is made from amazing Nikkor lenses, and the only problem is selecting which of these tag along. I find that I no longer keep a 'normal' lens mounted, tending more toward a fast 35mm and a zoom in the 35mm to 105mm range. If I'm going toward nature, the third lens is another zoom, covering the 105 to 210mm range; anything longer is a boat anchor. The best thing is that Nikon has built so many lens with fine definition, contrast and color balance over the years that the three lens battery can always take a slightly different selection. As of this date I am still not built for digital except for an Olympus pocket wonder that I think of as the 'document recorder' because that's the role it fills best. It's always along, but given a couple of heartbeats it will slip back into my briefcase and my intended target will see a Nikon F100 in it's place. These two F100 camera bodies will most likely fill my need for 35mm SLR film cameras from here to the great beyond, a place where no recording of wonders is needed.

Great bargain, great camera

The Nikon F100 35mm SLR camera is probably the best bang for your buck available today. It may not have all the features of the F6 or even the F5 but at about 1/2 the cost of a good used F5 it has all the features any of us need and will use as many or more of the Nikkor lenses. It's not only lighter than an F5 but anyone familiar with Nikon's family of DSLR's will feel right at home with the controls. I can go from my D700 or D7100 to my F100 and know right where everything is controlled from. The only real problem for me is now that I'm so used to digital, it's hard to reign in the shutter clicks when using film. In the old days I'd have to take my time composing, exposing, focusing etc. that now I've almost become lazy with bracketing and 'free film' with digital. Especially since my particular f100 has the MB-15 grip. I'm so tempted to set it on Cs (CH on the digital cameras) and fire away at 8FPS.
Overall I would recommend this camera for anyone looking to start shooting film with a relatively advanced SLR on a budget. It may even make you a better photographer, getting one back to basics as you will undoubtedly have to slow down and think before you shoot. Give one a look, I got mine, one in very good condition on ebay with the MB-15 grip for $200.00, a bargain!

Added power provides better performance.

Adding a battery grip to my Nikon F100 improved the performance of the camera by providing a reliable power source. It speeds up everything from auto focus to shutter speed, improves my grip on the camera and I seldom have to worry about running out of battery power while shooting all day,Read full review...

Nikon F100

The reflector was loose when it arrived. This is a very easy repair I did at home. In every other respect it is a great quality product in excellent condition priced at a good value.
