The Nikon D100. This is the camera I am currently using. I got this from a friend that was passed down from a product photographer previously. I have been shooting with the camera for a little while now and have been very comfortable with it. I had used this camera at my previous job as it was the camera we used for shooting product. The couple of things I have found to be an issue are: 1) it’s only 6.1 mega pixels 2) when using auto focus feature the picture seems a little soft 3) when shooting raw, the camera gets really bogged down (not sure if it’s the camera or the card, testing to follow). I have included some of the specs, a review from dpreview and some examples of a recent shoot I did. Enjoy!
