The New Camera Body!

June 10, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Drum Roll please....    What did I get??   The New Nikon D7100!!!    The BOSS surprised me with it last Wednesday...   I had been talking about it for a while now, and doing a flip flop between the 7000 and the 7100.   I could save some money with the 7000, especially if I went with a Re-Furb.  The problem in my mind, the 7100 had newer technology and would I regret it later??

Well, knowing me and sometimes too much of a penny pincher, the BOSS took that decision right off the Table!   I found the learning curve a bit tough as this had more buttons and programs and less Menu than my D5100.   This is NOT a bad thing, just going to take a bit longer to learn it all. 

I was out of town Fri and Sat and spent Sunday getting real familiar with the camera and its operation.  I worked specifically to take 2 pictures for an upcoming challenge and was pleased with the quality of image and the operation of the camera.  This really appears to be a quality unit with many top of the line features.

Here are the 2 Challenge Photos' for the Subject of "Love"  The "hands" was my final pic to enter...

I have ordered a Battery Grip along with a spare battery and faster SD Card.   All of my lenses are compatible and I will also be keeping my D5100 as a back up.

Have fun shooting!!
