Why'd they do that?

I went from D7000 to D7100. Just noticed that the remote control mode is no longer available on the top dial. I liked it better when I could see what mode I'm in.

I don't know why it was removed, but I agree it was very handy to have it on the top dial. I now have it on MY MENU.

Hi Guys! I have a D7000 and am considering trading to a D7100. My question is "was it worth it?" I use my D700 as my main camera and seldom use the D7000 , I think I'm answering my own question. thanx for any input jim

I upgraded from 7000 to 7100 and converted the 7000 to IR. I am very satisfied with the decision. First, the 7100 has the same advanced autofocus system and processor as the d800 which was a big improvement over the 7000 for me. Also, the 7100 has a higher resolution lcd that is easier to see. The viewfinder display is OLED which is brighter and easier to see when it's sunny. These viewability features make the camera easier to use. The 7100 has 5 bracketing steps as opposed to 3 for the 7000 which can be useful for HDR if you're into that.

I missed it too coming from a D90 until I found that you can turn on the remote on the info screen. Just it the new i button at the lower left and arrow down to the remote icon.

On the D90 remote was on the shooting mode button which moved to the new dial control so the change made sense to me. I can see coming from a D7100 why the change would be even more confusing.

Steve, the D7100 AF system is scaled down DX version of it's big brothers D4 and D800.

Also with best Dynamic range of D7000 out of all DX cameras at ISO 100 the bracketing of three images (-3, 0, +3) will cover all possible scenarios. I don't do HDR, but by analogy to focus stacking I can only speculate the more images are used in HDR post processing - the more artifacts will be introduced to the final image. The age of D300 dynamic range is over. That camera and previous generation cameras indeed required 5,7,9 images for HDR. But D7000 will cover all reasonable DR with just three shots.

Best regards,
Vlad

I hate having to dig features off the menus. It's so much better just have a proper dial or button on the camera body. But as complicated as these things have become, there's only so much room for buttons. And buttons cost money.
