    D7100 firmware update!

    Last week I updated the firmware on my D7100 and just ran through some images since the update. The info on the update said that it addressed linear noise issues in video taken with the camera.

    D7100 Back focus issue

    I am having a terrible time with my d7100. I purchased it back in Feb as a Refurb product from Adorama, and everything seemed fine for a while.

    Under exposure : Correct exposure

    I found this article interesting this morning. It poses the question, is underexposure the new correct exposure, considering the shadow recovery of the newest high end sensors, particularly Nikon. Creative underexposure with Nikon DSLR camera | Nikon Rumors

    C&C portrait

    Here is a shot I took about 6 weeks ago, I haven't been able to decide if I like it or not. Posing people is not my strong suit and I need to get better, so any tips on that would be great
