What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Nikon D7100 Digital SLR Camera
  • Weather sealing, great ergonomics, beautiful LCD and a rich menu system - all in a lightweight magnesium alloy camera body that weighs less than its predecessor.
  • It is a good size and weight, it feels comfortable, but not too heavy.
  • I love the auto white balance which works a treat in almost 99% of scenarios. I love the weight of the camera.
  • I bought this body as an upgrade from my previous D3300 and I'm loving this up to now. The body has a nice weight which is good imo.
  • Personally I would like to see a tad more weight to the camera, but many will prefer its lightweight body.
Nikon D7200 DSLR Camera + 18-105 mm VR Lens
  • It still feels and handles just like a NIkon. Not small, but just right. Beautifully made and works like a dream.
  • The camera is sturdy, well balanced and comfortable in hand. Without the lens it is very light considering what it is.
  • I love the size, the battery life, the solid feel of the metal body, and of course, the quality of the images.
  • The weight difference between the D5300 and the D7200 is noticeable (the D7200 is heavier), and it's not uncomfortable to hold.
  • The only thing i did not like is the weight. I got this as a step up from my D300 but im missing how heavy it is.

What customers say about "Imaging"
Nikon D7100 Digital SLR Camera
  • The image quality is excellent with large file sizes, excellent performance.
  • Its high-resolution 24.1 MP sensor delivers superb performance at both low and high ISO.
  • I used, for the first time, last week high ISO sensitivity levels and was blown away by the quality of the image on JPEG Fine.
  • A much higher ISO level plus exposure compensation produced exactly what I wanted.
  • The first thing I noticed was the performance in low light conditions. With the right settings I was able to reproduce very clean raw images to later develop on my computer.
Nikon D7200 DSLR Camera + 18-105 mm VR Lens
  • ISO range is very wide and makes flash photography mostly unnecessary. I could go on for ages and am still learning.
  • It handles higher ISO very well. I'm very big on night photography. I usually will set the camera on 3200 - 6400 ISO and this has done an amazing job at keeping noise levels down and preserving detail.
  • Low light and high ISO settings performance are much better and the focusing system is extremely good.
  • The D7200's snappier autofocus especially in low light blew me away I was honestly not expecting it to be so good and it's high ISO capability is better than any APS-C DSLR.
  • It soon became apparent that it had a few shortcomings, ie the buffer size, focus hunting in low light and a less than impressive dynamic range.

What customers say about "Display"
Nikon D7100 Digital SLR Camera
  • Upgraded from a d5000 which i loved but this just blew me out the water. pictures are so sharp, colours are amazing, screen is large and clear.
  • LCD screen quality helps you in deciding if the image is in good or poor focus and also it shows lost highlights and focus point.
  • All the controls are straight forward and simple to work out and the large screen size makes this all the more accessible.
  • The rear screen is large and useful, the 'i' and 'info' buttons are new to me and very good.
  • The LCD screen is useful on the top right of the camera and the two command dials which primarily control aperture and shutter speed, though they have other uses, some customizable.
Nikon D7200 DSLR Camera + 18-105 mm VR Lens
  • The screen is nice and bright and the viewfinder gives you 100% coverage, what you see is what you get.
  • LCD screen is a very obvious improvement: not much bigger but a lot brighter and clearer.
  • A flip-out LCD screen would be a nice feature to have but, this is the right camera for me. Top LCD screen simplified and uncluttered.
  • The one button selects turn on the display and are not all available on the LCD. This is annoying at night.
  • The only thing I do not like is that live view screen isn't fixed, no tilt!

What customers say about "Features"
Nikon D7100 Digital SLR Camera
  • The camera feels like a solid, professional tool and has a wealth of buttons/knobs to help you access all the features that you could need.
  • I love the intuitive falling to hand buttons and command dials. Comfortable to use.
  • I like the control panel on the top of the camera (as in the D80). I like the information screen you can call up on the monitor.
  • All the major settings are adjustable from buttons on the camera body as opposed to accessing menus which speeds things up.
  • 6fps on rapid shoot setting, does it sound a lot? wait till you try it and you realise how quick that really is.
Nikon D7200 DSLR Camera + 18-105 mm VR Lens
  • The camera is a little daunting. It has buttons and knobs and two screens. You can reprogram most of the buttons and knobs.
  • The camera is very robust, the quality of the image impressive. There are an impressive number of options for everything, autofocus in particular.
  • The D7200 offers accurate focus, white balance and flesh tone color balance, exceeding my expectations.
  • Controls are fairly familiar after years with the D80, the virtual horizon feature is not the gimmick I suspected but really useful!
  • There's also as the normal manual, shutter and aperture priority, a pretty good programmed auto, and a myriad of customisable functions, settings and buttons.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Nikon D7100 Digital SLR Camera
  • Indeed one can use two SD cards and captures JPEGs and RAW images at the same time if required.
  • Top features from my point of view are the 24mp sensor and the dual memory card slots.
  • Dual SD card slot. Useful when shooting RAW+JPEG, or just having larger volume for photographs or having one backup card.
  • The D7100 does not have WiFi but it is compatible with Nikon’s WU-1a wireless mobile adapter. It has two SD memory card slots.
  • I drew attention to the quality of the case, at the highest level! From the screen to the ports!
Nikon D7200 DSLR Camera + 18-105 mm VR Lens
  • The camera is fast. The ability to connect via wifi to my iPhone and grab pictures is great. You will love this camera and use it for years.
  • The NFC works great no issues and the WiFi is build in no issues with that.
  • Thanks to NFC and Wi-Fi, I can easily take photos and transfer photos directly to my phone. Most notably, it has TWO SD card slots whereas the D7500 does not.
  • The only thing I'm not over struck on is the Wifi and NFC - these seem to be aimed at connecting to a mobile device of some description.
  • NFC works with WiFi to turn on and off the connection. You are better off buying a remote for the camera than trying to use a smart phone.
