Comments about Nikon Nikon F100 35mm Autofocus SLR Camera Body - Refurbished By Nikon U.S.A.:

This camera replaced my Nikon FM-2. Camera controls and operation extremely well thought out: particularly tactile feel. Clear, bright viewfinder with easy to see display. Frequently used features customizable. A work house.

Comments about Nikon Nikon F100 35mm Autofocus SLR Camera Body - Refurbished By Nikon U.S.A.:

I have my F100 for several years, shooting hundereds of rolls. It continues to be bullet proof. Have not had any problems or any need for service. If one loves shooting film this camera is a bargain at its current price. I paid a lot more when it first came out. However, with the many cameras I own the F100 is one purchase I'll never regret.

Comments about Nikon Nikon F100 35mm Autofocus SLR Camera Body - Refurbished By Nikon U.S.A.:

I bought this camera as an upgrade from a Nikon N50 - and was it ever! It has provided many trouble-free years of service. I have used it on vacations to Washington D.C., Washington state, Northern California, and Alaska to name a few, and it has never let me down. The build quality is such that you believe you have something special - it is one solid machine. It is a bit complex if coming from a simpler camera, so reading the manual is a must to get the most out of it. Today it serves me well along with my digital SLR's (such as the D200) and often reminds me of why I like film. And with the current prices, this is a great deal as well. Highly recommended.

Excellent Film Camera
By Old PhotogVerified Reviewer from Austin, TX on 9/15/2006
Pros:
Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Versatile
Cons:
Heavy, No built-in flash
Best Uses:
Professional Work, Special Events, Travel

Comments about Nikon Nikon F100 35mm Autofocus SLR Camera Body - Refurbished By Nikon U.S.A.:

If you love shooting film, you should love this camera. I've used mine for several years and, in spite of also owning a D200, I haul out the F100 just to keep my love for film going. It may be a little heavy, but that's because of it's tank-like construction. On the whole, this is one of the best cameras I've ever owned and I've owned a lot of 'em.

Couldn't be happier
By wintermuteVerified Reviewer from Switzerland on 8/14/2006
Pros:
Comfortable Design, Fast Film Loading, Reliable Operation, Strong Construction
Best Uses:
Action Shots, Photojournalism, Sports Photography, Travel

Comments about Nikon Nikon F100 35mm Autofocus SLR Camera Body - Refurbished By Nikon U.S.A.:

I've had my F100 for two years now, put a huge number of rolls through it, never had any problems. The only gripe I have with it is the less than optimal battery life, but as AAs are available pretty much everywhere, that's a minor niggle. The autofocus is wickedly fast & accurate. I couldn't be happier with this excellent piece of engineering.

A TROUBLESOME CAMERA
By JOHN B. MARCUS from NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK on 8/8/2006
Pros:
Comfortable Design, EASY TO VIEW CONTROLS, Fingertip Controls, LIGHT AND COMFORTABLE, Strong Construction
Cons:
TROPICAL CLIMATE A NO NO, USELESS IN HUMID WEATHER
Best Uses:
Action Shots, Photojournalism, Sports Photography, Travel

Comments about Nikon Nikon F100 35mm Autofocus SLR Camera Body - Refurbished By Nikon U.S.A.:

I WOULD NOT BUY THIS CAMERA AGAIN. IT FUNCTIONS WELL UNDER NORMAL CONDITONS BUT VERY POORLY IN HOT TROPICAL CONDITIONS. TWICE NOW IT HAS TOTALLY MALFUCTIONED.ONCE IN CHINA AND ONCE IN VIETNAM. THE PROBLEM SEEMS TO BE IN THE FILM WINDING SYSTEM. IT HAS THE SAME NEGATIVES AS A TYPICAL COMPUTER IN VERY HOT HUMID WEATHER. REALLY, NIKON SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF ITSELF FOR RELEASING SUCH A CAMERA. I HAVE HAD THEIR PRODUCTS FOR YEARS AND AM SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING CHANGING TO ANOTHER MANUFACTURER.
