Re: Nikon D7100

Have you tried a full reset. I'm not sure, but usually you can do a factory reset of some sort. Since you just bought it and can return it, I wouldn't mess with the firmware. Before returning it check every setting. Maybe they tweaked a picture profile and that is why it's messed up. That's where I would start. I have a 5100 which is basically the same camera but with less manual control.

Re: Nikon D7100

Well that's good. You might want to look at the Nikon firmware hacks if you are shooting video. They are at Nikonhacker.com. The latest one gave me some manual control in the live view mode that I didn't have before, but again I have the 5100 so I'm not sure of all the control differences. Also I did wait till mine was out of warranty, as messing with the firmware is always risky. Enjoy. I used to live in Luton and Newbury. I hope to take a trip back soon one day.

Re: Nikon D7100

Hello guys.

I want to buy my first DSLR and i Nikon D7100 seems to be really good, except for one thing. It's not possible to control the exposure in live video mode, is that correct?

Does anyone here have that or other Nikon's with the same problem?

Thanks

Re: Nikon D7100

My understanding is you can not change the aperture once you are in live view mode.

You still have control over Shutter and ISO.

At least, that's how it was on the D610 I borrowed and it and the D7100 are pretty much the same camera.

Re: Nikon D7100

Thank you for your reply Kyle Root

Do you think it's too annoying for filmmaking? No aperture control in live view is only when it starts recording right? You can control it in the LCD before recording?

Re: Nikon D7100

Tiago, you have to actually exit live view completely to change the aperture setting on lenses without aperture rings.

All my lenses have aperture rings except the tokina 11-16, so this is not a problem I run into, but even when I have done it, it hasn't been too bad. You push one button, change the aperture, push that button and you're good to go.



To the OP, my d7100 doesn't have any issues you're discussing. Seems very odd.

Hint: you can correct exposure via the EV menu.

Re: Nikon D7100

I've been shooting video with the D600 for two years. You won't be disappointed with the D7100. As mentioned by others, there is no real "obstacle" with changing exposure in live view because you can adjust 3 different ways;

1. Set before you switch on live view, or turn off live view and adjust.
2. Adjust EV steps in live view
3. Adjust shutter and/or ISO in live view

In general I don't change exposure in the middle of a shot, so it's never been an issue.

I've really really enjoyed it. I've had it around a year now.

I upgraded to the 7100 from a canon t2i and the difference in pretty significant to me.

The 7100 is awesome. Has noticably more DR, no Aliasing/Moire, does better in High ISO's and has a lot of other really nice features like audio meters, a head phone jack (<3), dual SD cards, built in intervalometer, oh and an absolutely amazing (AMAZING) stills camera.

I used magic lantern with the canon and know you can get a lot of those features, but it's not as nice as the 7100

I've had a great time with the d7100

Re: Nikon D7100

While I really want a D750, I've just about talked myself into buying a D7100. I've seen them going refurbished for <$900, and I think I'm going to get one very soon.

My intention is to replace my D90 and V1 with a single DSLR camera.

I've gone all around between FX and DX, but for me, I think DX is going to be good enough for my video needs... and good enough for my photo needs, as a hobbyist.

I was kind of hoping we'd see something at Photokina on the DX front , but no luck.
