Why It's Cool
Got an existing arsenal of Nikon lenses? The 6.1-megapixel D100 will accept them all. » It can fire at 1/4,000 of a second to capture true stop-action pictures. » If you can't find a power receptacle for the removable, rechargeable battery pack, the D100 will accept standard AA's. » Don't sweat the user manual; the D100's function menu and interface are among the most intuitive available. » Fire a remarkable three frames per second at the very largest JPEG size. » The camera uses Compact Flash cardsthe most affordable storage media out there.Hmmm . . .
At 25 ounces (body only), the plastic D100 is heavy, and it's still pricey: Look for Nikon's cheaper, lighter D70, coming out soon, to challenge Canon's Rebel.
