D100 4.2 5 12 12
Shows its age, but still a great step into the world of DSLR's. The D100 was my very first DSLR and I still have it to this day. I've never had a problem with it, even 12 years and 40k +/- shutter actuations later. The only gripes I've had with it when I still used it were the flash sync, low FPS, and miniature LCD screen, but it was several years into using it before I even realized those things were relatively important to me. For most amateurs, this camera will still perform remarkably well... even now. Besides those simple qualms, there is still a lot about the D100 to be pleased with. It makes very good use of the 6 megapixels it was given and produces very respectable colors. Images are sharp and noise wasn't much of an issue until you started moving into higher ISO's. Throw a decent piece of glass on it and you can still make great photos with it today. My son has recently taken an interest in photography and I plan to give it to him as his first DSLR if his interest blooms some more. There are obviously much better cameras on the market now, but if you happen to run across a used D100 for a good price, don't hesitate to pick one up, especially if you are new to digital photography and want to get your feet wet without breaking the bank. Lastly, if you can also pick up the MB-D100 multifunction battery pack, grab it as well. The extra shoot-on-the-go features and battery life were instrumental in taking me from a ho-hum hobbyist photographer to a very serious enthusiast... as was the camera itself, of course. May 1, 2014
Ten Years After There's some things missing on the D200 that the D100 has, like TIFF. And you have to take off your grip every time you have to charge your battery in the D300. You have to go to the D3 before you get the fab battery life of the D100. I'm writing in 2013 and though I have the Canon 5D and good Canon lenses I still have occasion to go to the D100, like for instance when I want to use TIFF - and I get six shots off in continuous on TIFF on my D100 today, I also get the camera recharged faster on the buffer with high speed CF cards of today. And I can use a maximum 4GB CF card as well , which is not bad at all. My D100 was one of the later ones made in 2005 so the colour on the LCD screen is corrected as are several other faults of the original D100 design, and it has the all important updates built in in the factory too! And now I'm off to buy the top Nikon SB80DX flash for it from a fella for 70 Euro - just where do you get the top flash for any DSLR for that today? My D100 looks and acts like new, there's ever been only 7000 shots taken on it and the previous owner was a careful foot doctor. And the grip on it is far better and more solid than the D200 plastic grip and probably better than most other grips on more recent cameras too. It focuses all Nikon well with built-in motor and even non-Nikon AI lenses, it's built waay better than the modern little plasticky wonders, you feel you have a pro job in your hands, - and it's ideal for the landscapes and architectural that I do, even today in 2013. And it has several more years in it yet. It also has the better CCD colours as well as the best high eyepoint viewfinder for people wearing specs like me. The D100 is a classic camera, it's the only Nikon where you can shoot readymade TIFF on CCD which is ideal at times for my purposes, and that's why I still use it today. (I use Canon 5D classic and film Bronica and Mamiya as well) . Best to write in +0.7 exposure compensation, adjust sharpening at HIGH, Hue at +3 - oh and and give contrast a +. If you have or get version 2 firmware then buy a fast 4GB card. March 20, 2013
Best of the Oldies, great bargain today! Because in the Nikon D200 , the D100 successor, you have to remove the grip to change the battery and you have to do the same really awkward change in the D300 and D90 that slows you up no end as is really awkward , and even impossible, if you have gloves on in an Irish winter! Usually it takes 3 to 4 minutes if you're fast and not awkward like I am. In this alone the D100 scores highest! Undoubtedly the D200, D300 and D90 are more featured but they're not any or much better in image quality especially if you use RAW, sometimes the D100 can be better - it all depends on yourself. The D100 also has a microphone in its grip for note-taking along with every shot if you want, the D200 hasn't got this handy feature. I've gotten nice landscapes with the D100 for publication using TIFF. But the D100 would not be much good in sport or fast action where you would need more than six jpegs or four RAW shots continuous. I use a 5D classic and a Canon 40D as well, I picked up the Nikon D100 to use the lenses I had with my Nikon D90S and for a mere 150 Euro at a local camera shop - with six batteries! Six batteries, you'll ever only need one with the D100 as it must simply be the best in the business on battery power - it lasts much longer on a charge than any other DSLR I know, have or have ever handled. I've not given it five stars on acount of its slow buffer and small LCD screen, but if you can deal with that then the D100 could be a great bargain for you too. March 7, 2013
Nice entry level camera I am quite please with this camera. It is surprisingly compact for a DSLR plus it takes great pictures and video. April 14, 2011
I still love this camera... This was my first digital camera back in the day, an upgrade from the N80 (essentially the same camera). I still love this camera, even in 2010. My favorite lightweight walk around camera with a 50 1.8 on it. It's only real drawback is the slow sync speed, it also gets pretty noisy at ISO 800+. A great value on the used market.

High end dslr This dslr takes wonderful pictures but it has a CCD not a Cmos but the best camera i have owned. August 6, 2010
D100 was a big disappointment..... If I hadn't had so much invested in Nikon lenses I probably would have switched to Cannon over the poor quality and constant problems with Nikon's first prosumer DSLR, the D100. It was and is so unreliable and yes it's quite 'old' technology now....it got very little use, worked very poorly, and I probably should have insisted on a new one even though Nikon did work on it a few times. I am much happier now that I have moved up to a D7000 but feel like I can't even trust the D100 for a backup camera. I never felt like I got my money's worth out of it. May 22, 2011

Answer: 
You need a MB-D100 battery grip, it has the ten pin terminal. The MC-30 does not work on the camera body, no connector.
