"I've been unfaithful..."


US
          

Picked up a new 7100 over the weekend. Yes, that means another picture of a dog.

Initial thoughts: it's quite the refined 7000. Very informal tests show that I lose shadow detail before I do so with the 7000. I suspect the gain in AF performance will be worth it for strongman / lifting events. I'm glad I still have a 7000; I would have to think long and hard about being able to live with the 7100 as my only body.

Congratulations Bob, what a nice addition to the bag. I have no doubt the D7100 will help on the competition events but I also find the D7000 low ISO performance something special.
Nice shot, wide tone range handled well by the camera....and you.

Bob, enjoy your new body. I just picked up a 7000 as my main body...still keeping the d200. Will be interested in your thoughts of comparing the two...although much has been discussed so far.

Thanks Rick. I'm flattered - but will be sure to post as I have a chance to shoot more.

I have an important shoot planned for the last week of October that should prove to be a good test.

Bob - Great shot of the dog.

I think you're going to eventually capture even more shadow detail with the D7100 than you're used to capturing with the D7000. That's been my experience anyway. I like your product description - "a refined D7000" - seems bang on.

I initially had problems with shadow detail too. Then I increased my shutter speeds for all shots - anywhere from 1-2 stops. As I suspected at the time, because I had been using too slow a shutter (I shoot handheld 99% of the time) a couple of pixels worth of blur had crept in compared to the same sorts of shots in the same situations when using a D700 or D7000. The higer res sensor in the D7100 demanded either a steadier camera position or a fast shutter for my type of shooting. Anyhow, getting rid of the additional pixels of blur by using a faster shutter seemed to help clean up shadow detail for me.

Thanks Howard. I'll keep the increased shutter speed in mind, and give that a whirl.
