About this item

With innovative built-in Nikon F System technology more sophisticated than ever, the F100 makes precise, responsive Dynamic Autofocus so fast that images literally pop into focus. The camera also works perfectly with every AF Nikkor lens, AF-S Nikkor, AI Nikkor and more.

The F100 features Nikon's 3D Matrix Meter, for exposure control that has been developed through over a generation of innovation. There's Spot and Center-Weighted Metering, too. And Nikon's Automatic Balanced Fill-Flash System is uncanny at showing up that touch of extra light for more perfect exposures and cover page pictures.

For extra dependability, the chassis, top, bottom and front covers, and selected parts are constructed of rugged magnesium alloy metal.

By expanding your choices and meeting your need for a smaller, lighter camera, all without sacrificing ruggedness, the F100 joins the Nikon F5 as a camera of choice among the world's best. In short, it's one tough camera destined to take whatever kinds of the world's greatest pictures you want to take. That makes it truly worthy of the name Nikon F100 - Professional.
