D100 Digital SLR Camera

| By Stacey C. Rivera | From Air Sick, Jul/Aug 02

Amateur photography is not a hobby; it's a passion. The pursuit of quality photographs leads the amateur photographer to exotic and extreme destinations as well as to high-tech, quality equipment. Digital cameras have thus far eluded the photo enthusiast because they were either very expensive, professional-grade models or produced low image-quality photos good only for Web sites and e-mailing. This summer that is about to change.

The Nikon D100 Digital SLR is a 6.1 megapixel camera made for the home user. According to Richard LoPinto, a vice president of marketing for Nikon, "The new Nikon D100 has been designed for people who enjoy and appreciate beautiful photography, and they also thoroughly can enjoy the process of making pictures." With higher resolution than some professional digital cameras already on the market, the D100 was built as part of Nikon's SLR family of film cameras, which means all of the bells and whistles for your SLR film camera can be used with the digital body, including more than 40 lenses. (For some amateur photogs, lens incompatibility has been a major deterrent to going digital.) While the D100, which weighs 24.7 ounces without a battery, was built to be digital, it shares some aspects of Nikon's film cameras, including similar controls.

The camera has a top shutter speed of 1/4000 second, three color mode options, five area autofocus, autofocusing and manual focusing. There are two batteries available, a standard and a multi- function battery pack that includes extra goodies like voice memo and a 10-pin remote terminal. (The camera will also accept six AA batteries as a backup with the battery pack.) For an expected street price of $1,999.95, the D100 comes with rechargeable battery, charger, USB cable, video cable and Nikon View 5 software, but once downloaded, the user can use most of the current photography software on the market, including Adobe PhotoShop.
