Canon vs Nikon: Which is better?
One camera setting that ruins your pictures
(and more, keep reading):
 

Unlike other websites, we don't try to pitch DSLRs, lenses, and other gear, while collecting sales commission. We don't sell photography tutorials, books, DVDs and courses, while promising that your photography will improve only if you buy what's being promoted.

Instead, we have other people, who've already become great photographers, share with you what they learned, what gear they use, which products really work and which are useless, which techniques work and which don't.

It's all completely unbiased. Our users simply have no reason to lie to you. They are people just like you.

And we provide a free platform for you and them to communicate. So you get to discover this information straight from the source, from people just like you, not from editors of some magazine or sales reps of some company.

This is what make us different from other photography websites out there that try to sell you something while claiming they are trying to help you.

Among our users, we have some of the most talented photographers in the world share advice that you won't find even in the most expensive subscription magazines. That's because some of them only post on our website, so you won't find this information anywhere else! Some of them post under an alias, others disclose their studio name, it's up to them. But in either case you get to read and discover photography techniques that will make you very good at taking pictures.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional photographer, then the benefits of signing up for our free daily photography forum digest are:

• We cover both film and digital photography.

• We talk about professional (D)SLR cameras, mirrorless cameras, mid-range/prosumer models, point-and-shoot, and camera phones.

• We cover all types of photography from portraits to landscapes to action shots to macro photography. (Which one interests you the most? Stop and ask yourself right now. You'll need to be able to answer that in just a minute. No matter what you shoot, you'll get better at just that. Read below to find out why.)

• We cover all aspects of photography from picking gear to composition to working with models, and everything in between.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques on how to take the kind of pictures that will make your friends, relatives and peers just stare in amazement, speechless, when they see your work. Yep! That's how good your photography will become.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a photography forum digest with the latest photography tips, tricks, reviews and discussions.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• And of course, it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for photographers, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a good memory card for a D7100. What do the different classes mean

Classes are usually important to shooting video for faster read/write speeds. That said I've had great luck with Transcend SD cards. I still would get a class 10 card. You never know. You can get them reasonably priced from Amazon and they have a lifetime warranty.

The D7100 REQUIRES Class 10 cards in the SDHC format, or you can elect to go to the SDXC format if you want to. I shoot in RAW + JPG Basic with mine. For this I use a 16GB Class 10 SDHC in slot 1 to record the RAW images, and an 8GB Class 10 SDHC in Slot 2 to record the JPG images. It has worked extremely well for me. I use both Sandisk and Lexar cards interchangeably and have never had any issues with either brand.

I use Class 10 Sandisk 32GB in both slots, and shoot RAW in slot 1 and JPG in slot 2. Never had a problem (knock on wood). I use the same card in both slots...just in case ...so,if something goes bad with the card in slot 1, (While on a shoot) I can just replace it with the card in slot 2 and still have the same capability.

Ditto - I follow the same principle as MT has stated below. Never had a card failure and rest assured, if I do, the second card would be my backup. I might add after clearing out both cards, I always reformat in Camera. Cheers Mate.

I too use the Sandisk cards with my Nikon D7100. Use a 16Gb in slot 1 and a 32gb in slot 2. Both are SDHC, Class 10, so far no problems. As far as speed, you have to look at the individual cards, some write at 30mb per second and some at 45mb per second. The higher speeds do not slow down the write speed. Also, the higher the speed the higher the COST!!! Have not used them but understand the Lexar cards are good ones also.

Hey MT Shooter, on the extreme pro cards does the read speed make that much different 30ms vs 95ms for the D7100

The read speed actually means nothing to your camera. That only states the speed at which the data can be read when downloading through a card reader into the computer.
What the camera is concerned with is the WRITE speed of the card. The cards write speed needs to be at least as fast as the cameras buffer wants to write the image data. A card with a slower write speed than the camera needs will create a bottleneck and cause the camera to lock-up during shooting while it waits to write data from the buffer to the card.

What write speed do you use on your D7100

The D7100 uses the same buffer as the D7000. This has been listed as having a maximum 28Mb/s write speed.
Nikon recommends Class 6 or higher for video in both bodies, Class 4 or higher for stills.

Thanks so much for the info. I just got a new D7100 yesterday.

I'm setting up the D7100. Can't seem to get the depth of field button to work, any suggestions. I'm sure it has to be something I'm missing. Can't wait to try the camera out. Ha,ha.
