Bulky, Reduces camera useability
on February 24, 2014
When I first saw this skin for the D7100, I thought..."this is great. Good protection, good grip" Then I received the skin:
Pros: Will likely protect the camera from many scratches and scrapes
Body skin installs quickly and easily
Cons: (lots of them)
Rear-display cover is very difficult to install
You have to memorize the button locations since the skin covers the white letters on them
The rubber is so thick that the clearance for the camera grip is reduced. I have trouble getting my fingers to wrap around the grip.
The hot shoe cover gets in the way when using a flash
The skin interferes with tripod quick release adapters
The skin makes it very difficult to access the connections on the right side of the body. They are already protected by rubber covers. Now you have to pull back two covers. I ended up cutting the skin to remove that section
Overall, this skin turned out to be useless. I would only recommend this to people that don't use tripods, have small hands, don't use the connections on the side of the camera and can picture all of the controls in their mind (since you can't see the text for each button), which basically means that I would not recommend this to anyone.
I'd be happy to send this skin to anyone that wants it, for free. Just pay postage.
