Why did i Get the camera
My other camera was stolen from my car and my mom felt bad so she got me this kit on my recommendation. I love photography and capturing great photos makes me happy, its like creating a detailed timeline of my life an adventure, its allows me to also get shoot for work, and school where a great photo makes a real difference in a project.

What's great about it
Nikon is known for great camera, and well getting this kit adds more choices to my abilities and will help me expand my skills. Its opened up video and cinematography to my capabilities I've built a camera dolly and I'm working on a time lapse tracks using an STM Discovery microcontroller. What great simply is the low light abilities I've played with lots of camera and love my medium format film camera, I don't currently have access to a dark room but those shoot in low light have always blow my mind with how sharp they come out. Digital low light has improved drastically in the last few years and this D7100 is a great showcase, it captures in light that you naked eye has difficulty seeing through and keeps clear details.

The color on this camera feel a light harsh to me, With digital I always do post editing and cleanup, using Pre exposure and white balance makes a world of difference and help correct coloration. The camera has a world of setting I still have not finishes exploring and expect to see many more new setting to experiment with.

Why choose Nikon
My last 3 Camera are Nikon and I have a bunch of old lens from film camera I still use from time to time that are compatible thus I stay in the Nikon ecosystem. When people say Canon over Nikon I say its not so much about the tool both are great camera makers and have superior lens quality and design( the most important part of DSLR the Lens) but the photographer and how they use their tool to capture and create amazing photographs and now videos. I personally have had good experience with nikon, and they responsiveness to warranty and help, less so in recent years but still good enough to keep my loyalty, even if all I wantes was a new wireless plastic clip that my roommates dog chewed on.

What Uses do I want it for
Time lapse is first and foremost, even since watching Yosemite HD on Vimeo and then immersing myself into the world of timelapse photography I have been come fascinated by how to do this and what I would need to create a breathtaking video using this style and technology.

I do Wedding from time to time to get some extra cash, I also love shooting outside portraits and adventure shots along with studio work when It suited, and It's always fun to have friends model or some sexy girl you met a few day ago… but for the most part I use my camera to capture my adventures and landscapes that the great state of california has to offer, I choice this Camera because of it reviews and speed for action photography along with its video capabilities of 1080p at 30 to 69 fps as I travel and spend time riding and filming bike races and epic ride. After all it was traveling and riding and seeing all the photographer getting epic shots of us racing that inspired me to buy my first camera 7 years ago, ever since, before that I shoot only film for art classes and artistic purpose. Nikon has a great respect to adapt to your situation and thus allow me to carry one camera and know that I can alway capture the shot I want. With my diverse desires to play with photography and explore it capabilities Nikon has always given me access to setting and features that are similar to film and superior in other ways. I already love the 7100 and the lens thats on it.

How Can it help a photographer
A photographer is only limited by their desire to learn what their equipment can allow them to accomplish, while most hobbyist photographers never use all the features on these expensive professional camera, this Camera has every feature I could at the moment dream of, built in time lapse timer, HDR, and Long shutter times. Capturing all the shadows in stunning detail, or leaving the shutter open for 2 hours in the high sierras to capture the deep milky way that the human eye can't This camera can grow with a photographer and those professionals will be happy using this pro featured camera without missing anything.

What are its limitations
Well I haven't found any yet but in a year Ill come back and tell you where I stumbled across limitation while trying to get a shot I want, no matter what camera I've carried so far I have always come to a situation where the camera thats in my hand falls short of what I was trying to accomplish. While rare its really just think about what you as a photographer wants out of there equipment.

A few cons for those who don't want all the feature and its big to carry all over the place, not really through in backpack friendly but it does take exceptional photos when you do. And it take time to learn all the feature this camera has to offer.

What do I plan on capturing with this camera
So far I have been taking senior photos for friends and just playing around my college with it, learning all its features and how it behaves. I'm planning a few trips this summer and expect to get some epic time lapse of the mountains, a nice bike video of Tahoe, and some epic photos for my web site of projects and adventures; really I've been so busy with engineering that I haven't gotten to really take all the photos I dream of taken, luckily I only have a year left and I plan on traveling to epic location around the world and epic to capture some wonderful shots worthy of framing. I love sharing the beauty of the world with those who sometimes forget to look, a camera captures sometimes things you can't even see and show you a deeper into a moment.

what's the benefit of getting the kit
the two lenses having a 70-300 telephoto is a necessity and after my last Camera and two lens were stolen this was a great way to get some of the pieces back. I still need a nice flash, and a 55mm 1.8f lens to use in lower lighting but once I can scrounge up the cash Ill replace those as well. I'm really just thankful that my mom and a friend help my buy this, or I would probably still be without a camera. money this kit was a great way to upgrade and get back my ability to capture the moments I live for.

    Comments about Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera Kit with 18-140mm and 55-300mm Lenses:

    I recently upgraded from a point-and-shoot to this D7100. The learning curve has been steep (unless you use the auto modes, which I'm determined not to do). I've been trying to improve my photography skills to better take advantage of all of its features. The picture quality is amazing, and I'm looking forward to getting cleaner pictures when lighting isn't the best. Highly recommend!

      Comments about Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera Kit with 18-140mm and 55-300mm Lenses:

      Camera gives easy access and shortcuts to a lot of needed functions when shooting in any Priority mode or Manual. Able to change through a few WB profiles with a bit of Amber/Blue adjustment (+/- 6). Change Focusing type from Single to Continuous and its variable modes of Continuous Single to Dynamic 51. Has 2 SD Card slots for redundancy or extra capacity or RAW-JPG split. Kit Lens are a good way to start for those who already want to shoot and can't afford the glass yet, or for those who don't need the extra capability in quality glass. Shooting in Manual with these glass has a bit of limitation, that's a given since the Aperture changes as you zoom. But being able to cover an 18mm to 300mm range to those who do not have any lenses is a good way to start. Photos are still usable at ISO 6400 in print.

        I went from a D80 to a D7100, both great products, but the upgrade is so worth it. I love to take photos and with what is out there with taking photos to another level with either picking a certain color (rest B/W) to having it look like a drawing - this was the best gift I could have received from my husband. Photo and Art - both in one camera!!!

        Comments about Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera Kit with 18-140mm and 55-300mm Lenses:

        The Nikon D7100 package with two lenses (18-140, 55-300) also includes a battery and charger, memory card (32gb), manual (a real, printed one… shocker), a mildly informative though decidedly pointed towards novice photogs DVD on shooting pictures and videos with Nikon cameras (which uses the D5300 in most examples), case, strap, etc. All in all a grouping of useful items, great to get you going if you aren't coming from an already stocked arsenal of digital photography equipment. It suited my needs.Suggestion #1: (I will add several of these) If you happen to possess some decent Nikon lenses suited to the DX format, just buy the body. The included lenses are good, but this camera and a simple 35mm 1.8 lens will take you a long way. Let me begin by saying that the online purchase and shipping from B&H Photo was simple and efficient. I spent a ton of time researching, so I already knew what I was looking for, and getting it headed my way was pretty straightforward. Because of the complete selection, ease of getting help, and dependable shipping, B&H is as risk-free as a purchase can get. On that note:Suggestion #2: Buy only from an authorized Nikon dealer. Grey market stuff is everywhere, especially @, and you don't have a prayer of getting service in the US if you need it. Many Nikon shops won't touch grey market items even at your cost, so you're on your own if you shop with non-dealers. For those who don't know, "Import" next to the name can be translated as "No warranty in the US." Although all Nikons are imports, only those that are imported through Nikon's recognized dealer network, verified by serial number, are covered by manufacturer warranty. You've been warned...A brief personal background to help understand my motivations: At one time I was quite the enthusiast on 35mm, having moderate local success and getting several photos in print. I didn't do much creative photography for many years, but my employment in law enforcement provided lots of opportunity for documentary photos. My real skills with a camera were not much in use here, mostly full auto shooting. A trip to the FBI National Academy re-awakened interest, having taken a course in Evidentiary Photography using Nikon D300s while there. When I was ready to jump back into photography, I did a ton of research, which lead me to the Canon 70D or Nikon D7100 as the best choices, and the Nikon likely won out on the strength of familiarity, as they are pretty much neck and neck as competitors. I favored the Nikon's image quality overall, but was never sure if that was a result of the camera, or the photographer skill. Either way, D7100 it was.The camera arrived safely and was quickly assembled. One of my "have to have" options was the ability to shoot fully automatically, fully manually, or variations in between… all well covered here. One thing I have come to appreciate as I am re-learning the craft is the semi-auto priority modes that set the aperture or shutter based on your input. You don't have to accept it, but it is very educational to see what the camera computer suggests to balance your settings. In other words, when you know what you want, say, in the way of aperture but aren't sure of shutter speed to make it work, you can get the camera's suggestion as a base point. In several tests, the camera's settings were pretty much spot on.I'm not a huge video guy, but did some tests for image stability and sound quality. Both were surprisingly good, especially so considering I was hand holding the camera. And the option for a stereo mic input is going to be a real quality booster on interviews. Nice work there. I also noticed an HDMI out, which is a great option for those who have a video recorder to record to, such as is the case in an interview room.The lenses in every setting were reliable in auto focus, accurate in manual focus, and very easy to handle. That brings up another good point: ergonomically, this camera and its lenses just feel good in the hand. Every time you want to adjust something the proper control always seems to be near an available finger. The more I learn, the easier it gets. There was considerable buzz about difficulty in making adjustments in the "internet expert" community, which I just didn;t find to be true. Which brings me to:Suggestion #2: Take all internet videos with a huge grain of salt. If a video starts with "some friends asked me to do a video about…" you can translate that as "I wanted to give you my personal, unsolicited, and often unsubstantiated/uneducated opinion on…" Many are thinly veiled fan-forums, especially comparisons. Glean what you can, leave the rest, rely on recognized professional reviews if you can find them… it's what the others are plagiarizing anyway. The capacities of the SD cards are amazing. When I saw the size of the default JPEG (6000x4000) I figured I would run out of the 32gb card quickly, until I checked… 4K available. That's 4000. I plugged in a 64gb card and, yep… 8100 available. Astonishing. Even if you go to RAW images, there's still a ton of room. I would have gone broke in the 35mm days to even think of shooting 1000 images at an event, and now it's a non-concern. Got to love technology.The one minus, and the only advantage the Canon 70D had in my opinion, was the swivel LCD. The Nikon's LCD is both larger and clearer, so it was a worthwhile trade, but I could see a few places a swing out unit could be useful. The Nikon LCD on a similarly executed swivel would be a killer add.In summary, it's a monster of a camera. I may go full frame on day if my skill ever warrants it but I honestly can't see a need at this point. I will add a 35mm prime, probably a good macro, and a flash and that will keep me busy for a long while. Very happy with the purchase.

                      many useless changes and worse.
                      has no protector lcd
                      and if I talk about all the bad changes would talk a lot.
                      18x140 The lens does not come with a protective cover and not with parasol.
                      explanatory dvd a D3200
                      the camera is a D7100 as you can?

                      The kit offered by Nikon and the buying experience at B & H were great. The Nikon D7100 is a great piece of equipment. Lots of flexibility and the shots are fantastic. All the different pieces of equipment which came in the kit were well worth the price along with the flexibility of using all the different components

                      Pretty awesome camera. The amount of functions available can be intimidating. But reading or skimming through the manual is so worth it and pretty easy.

                      I really wasn't a fan of the DVD that came with the camera, if you have photographed for a while nothing in it should be a surprise.

                      The wireless transmitter is a pretty cool little device and is worth it.

                      I mainly use the 18-140 mm lens and it's phenomenal. Although I don't use the telephoto as much, its nice to know I have it if I ever need it.

                      The bag is pretty nice and holds the camera equipment but I filled up the front pouch pretty quickly with cables, remotes, etc.

                      I'm still getting to know the camera and lenses but, so far, it's been a very pleasant experience finding out its features and potential use. I highly recommend this kit for newbies like me as well as other kinds of photographers.

                      This camera shoots the most colorful and beautiful pictures I have ever seen. I had a D70s and didn't think it could get much better but it did.

                        My experience range is somewhere between "extreme amateur" and "semi-pro". I have been shooting for more than 35 years. In the 9 days since I pulled it out of the box I have put it through the quick and dirty rigors to make me comfortable with it and I am quite pleased.

                        I am quite pleased with the high ISO performance in low-light. This was an excellent kit purchase. I read many reviews beforehand; good, bad and ugly. I purchased the camera and am very happy with it!

                          The camera and the lenses are as good as expected. The bag is not really functional. The wireless device does not work well with the app. The video is shorter than I expected. Bottom line, if you can get a better price for just the camera and the two lenses, do so.

                          This is a awesome camera, but it's not for beginers. If you are a beginner, this is overkill and you will most likely leave the camera on Auto, which would be a waste for a camera like this one. If you are pro, then this is for you. It's a great entry level Pro camera. This is my 3rd Nikon and they are 2nd to none. The 7100 is feature rich, for just about any photography job. This kit comes iwth two great lenses as well, a great bag (most kits have lame bags but not this one) B&H is awesome as well, filling the order ASAP and shipping out the next day to me. Good price to boot.
