NIKON D7100 DX-FORMAT DGITAL SLR BODY

The NIKON D7100 DX FORMAT DGITAL SLR BODY might look like something that’s capable of taking stunning fashion shots—and it most certainly is!—but there’s more to this camera that makes it so uniquely fit to take high-quality photographs no matter what your subject.

Product Highlights

  • HDR, or High Dynamic Range, can combine shots taken simultaneously at different settings to provide a rich, high-contrast image that doesn’t exist in the natural world. Anyone with a particularly fickle sense of visual power will understand how attractive this can make your shots.
  • The full-time autofocus and manual exposure controls ensure that the video recording with the Nikon D71000 DSLR is exactly as you want it—as smooth as possible, with minimal blurring.
  • Durable enough to take outside, the magnesium alloy of the Nikon D71000 offers some weather-resistance to the more adventurous photographers who like to take their cameras on journeys.

All in all, you’ll be able to create high-end, spectacular shots in landscapes, portraits, night photography and more—all that’s required is that you pick up a D7100 from Adorama for yourself.



Learn about the NIKON D7100 DX-FORMAT DGITAL SLR BODY

If you’ve found yourself searching the Internet with phrases like “best camera for fashion photography” and “camera that will make me an instantly brilliant fashion photographer,” we here at Adorama have some good news for you: that search is over. Introducing the NIKON D7100 DX-FORMAT DGITAL SLR BODY, a camera body capable of handling and processing a wide range of photographs, particularly beautiful fashion and portrait shots. Sound like exactly what you’re looking for? Hold on—we’re just getting started. Let’s take a closer look at all of the fashion-friendly features you can expect from this Nikon camera body:

  • Image quality won’t be a question here, not with a 24.1-megapixel DX-format image sensor, not with its superior low-light performance, and certainly not when you pair the Nikon D7100 DSLR body with any of the Nikon NIKKOR DX- and FX- format lenses. You’ll have enough image quality and processing power here that you’ll never have to wonder if your shots look up to snuff again—the proof is in the pudding. Or, in this case, the proof is in the sharpness and clarity of each camera shot you take.
  • Speed. We realize that we’re not talking about a sports car here, but let’s talk speed anyway. The six frames per second, continuously for up to 100 shots, means that you’ll be able to take a variety of portrait and live event shots quickly and easily screen them to find the best one. If you’re a professional using your Nikon D7100 DSLR to make your clients’ head shots look good or if you’re an amateur who simply likes taking pretty pictures, it doesn’t matter—the results will still speak for themselves when you can show you didn’t miss that perfect moment while waiting for your camera to catch up.
  • Share and upload quickly. When you’re on a fashion shoot or you want to share live event shots quickly, there’s only one option: your camera body better be able to handle your speed. The Nikon D7100 can. Thanks to an optional WU-1a wireless mobile adapter, transferring your shots to a compatible smartphone or tablet is all speed and ease. Want to show someone their portrait shots or get your photos uploaded to a social media website? This camera can accommodate.
  • Manual exposure control means that you can customize exactly what kind of shot you’re going to get—whether you’re taking a photo of the stars or you simply want to make your subject into a star. The high degree of control with each feature ensures that you’ll get the most out of each shot no matter how high your photographic standards.
  • Durability means versatility, because it means you can take the Nikon D7100 with you outside and get all of the landscape and scenery shots you want, and take advantage of that low-light capability. The magnesium alloy body is moisture and dust resistant, giving the camera plenty of resistance to all of the elements that arise when you’re outdoors for more than an hour.

Very few cameras at Adorama are so specifically fit for fashion shots—but the versatility here means you don’t have to be a beauty photographer to get beautiful shots out of the NIKON D7100 DX-FORMAT DGITAL SLR BODY.



From the Manufacturer
Meet the new flagship of Nikon's outstanding DX-format HD-SLR line-up: the D7100. Incorporating recent advancements in HD-SLR technology, the D7100 brings a thrilling new level of image quality, speed, connectivity and creative capabilities a specially designed 24.1-megapixel DX-format image sensor, superior low-light performance, ultra-precise autofocus and metering, advanced video recording features, built-in HDR, mobile connectivity and much, much more. Pair it with any of Nikon's superb NIKKOR DX- and FX-format lenses, versatile Speedlights and accessories, and the D7100 will be the centerpiece of your creativity for years to come.

The D7100 marks an exciting advancement in image quality for high-resolution DX-format cameras. Nikon specially designed its 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor without using an optical low pass filter (OLPF), resulting in the purest, sharpest images using D7100 DX-format CMOS sensor. Your photos and videos will come alive with brilliant detail and vibrance. Combine that with fantastic ISO performance at both ends of the spectrum down to ISO 100 and up to ISO 6400 the processing speed and intelligence of EXPEED 3 and the extra lens reach of a 1.5x crop factor, and the D7100 is the ultimate tool for those seeking a lightweight DX-format HD-SLR.

When the action speeds up, fire a blazing fast 6 frames per second continuously for up to 100 shots. Building on the acclaimed autofocus system from the D300s, the D7100 uses 51 focus points, including 15 cross-type sensors for detecting both vertical and horizontal contrast variations, to achieve fast, precise focus. The central cross-type sensor works all the way down to f/8, a huge advantage when using compatible teleconverters. At the same time, a highly accurate 2016-pixel RGB sensor evaluates every scene, taking into account brightness, contrast, subject distance and color, for spot-on auto operations like Face-Priority and full-time autofocus during video capture.

The D7100 makes it easy to share your great photos immediately, wherever you are. Connect the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter and instantly transfer shots to a compatible smartphone or tablet, then upload them to the web, send by email or text share them however you like. With Nikon's free Wireless Mobile Utility installed on your smartphone or tablet (available for both Android and iOS), you can also remotely control the D7100. Use your phone or tablet as a Live View monitor to take shots without having the camera in your hands, a huge advantage for everything from self portraits to digiscoping with a Nikon fieldscope.

With full-time autofocus and manual exposure control during video recording, a built-in stereo mic and an external stereo mic jack, headphone and HDMI jacks, the D7100 achieves exceptional cinematic reproduction and quality. Record in several high-definition formats: 1080p at 60i/50i/30/25/24 fps or 720p at up to 60p for ultra-smooth slow-motion sequences. Dual SD card slots give you additional recording time, and an all new 60i function enables smooth playback on HDTVs or external monitors. And, of course, every shot looks great through a NIKKOR lens. Create beautiful background blur with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G, or use the AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm for an ultra-wide-angle view that's perfect for establishing shots and working in tight interiors.

Built-in HDR (High Dynamic Range) combines shots taken simultaneously at different exposures into one beautifully rich, high-contrast image. Picture Control gives you instant access to the color characteristics of your images, and spot White Balance control for Live View shooting makes setting the white balance as easy as pointing to the area in the frame that should be white. You can even apply artistic Image Effects to both stills and videos in real-time.

Durable magnesium alloy with moisture and dust resistance protects the camera's internal parts from the elements. A new 3.2-inch ultra-high-resolution 1,229K-dot LCD monitor provides crisp image playback, menu adjustments and Live View shooting, and a new viewfinder with a low-power consumption OLED display element for bright, high contrast data readout and provides approx. 100% frame coverage.

Great camera that carries a lot punch!!!

I just returned from Costa Rica where I had the opportunity to really try my D7100 under different types of environment. Well, I took over 3k pics where in many instances I had to push the ISO to 3200 due to poor light conditions. This camera performed flawless coupled with the 18-300mm lens.

I just returned from Costa Rica where I had the opportunity to really try my D7100 under different types of environment. Well, I took over 3k pics where in many instances I had to push the ISO to 3200 due to poor light conditions. This camera performed flawless coupled with the 18-300mm lens. Used the camera mainly in A and S modes which are my favorites. There were instances where I pushed the EV to +2 without any problems. Used just about every focus mode combination the camera offers. I was very lucky that I own the D7000 which helped me greatly to handle my new D7100 that I received the week before departure. I did not get to use the crop feature but I am getting ready to use it this coming week while visiting the Everglades. This time it will be coupled with my 70-200mm. I feel that this is a superb camera and as I continue to learn about its new features, my pictures will improve dramatically.

Not a Serious Sports Camera

I have shot youth sports with the D300 since it was released. The D300 is still better for sports. The D7100 buffer is crippling for sports (and I don't shoot in CL or CH machine-gun setting). I have more keepers with the D300: the D7100 doesn't obtain focus as fast as the D300 in AF-C mode (I am using the 70-200 mm VRI lens)

D7100 first use

By

from westford  -  Photo Enthusiast

Bought the 7100 for wild life photography so have not used it much yet. I have taken a few shots and it seems to do quite well. I'm using a 120-300 f2.8 sigma lens and it might be a little slow on the focus. This make be the lens camera combo or I might need to get my focus settings in order?

Outstanding Value

By

from Seattle WA

This was my first DSLR camera and could not be happier with my purchase. I have used Nikon products for over 40 years and have always found the quality and features to be excellent. The D7100 is no exception. I purchased a refurbished camera as I am on a fixed income since my retirement. The camera I received had 16 shutter actuations prior to my purchase. The camera is basically new! Cosmetically the camera was perfect, and with only 16 prior actuations I am sure the camera will probably outlast me! The camera has more features that anyone could ask for and the quality of the images and ease of use are typical Nikon. The control interfaces are quite intuitive and took little time to learn. It is quite a departure from my old film cameras, so many features available, but so easy to use. The DX format vs FX format was not an issue since this camera produces such superior results. Prints larger that 20 x 30 are seldom required and if you need larger you would probably opt for a more expensive "professional" camera anyway. Low light performance and focusing are excellent and the the buffer size in high speed multiple exposures is quite adequate. I would not hesitate to recommend this camera to anyone starting a pro career or for anyone wanting just an all around excellent camera.

Excellent all around camera and lens

By

from Washington, DC, USA

The D7100 is my first new Nikon in ten years. Previously used D70. Bought the two lens package. Simply love the 18 - 140 lens. Looking forward to using the 70- 300 for baseball season. The quality of the camera and the photos are outstanding. Still learning the features. Very happy with the camera and lenses so far.

The extra megapixels mean little to me but what I really love is the professional feel to the camera. I love not having to go into the menus to change settings.. It feels more balanced with my heavy lenses also. The only thing I miss about the D5100 is the articulating LCD. I didn't use it often but when I did it was nice to have. There was a learning curve but in a few outings I started loving it.

Great camera but...

By

from Camarillo, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I originally purchased this camera to "upgrade" from my D90 which I thought the D7100 would address. My D7100 took amazing photos, great focusing speed, and once again great photos. I mainly used the camera for my son's ice hockey games and daughter's dance recitals in below average lighting in which the D7100 handled like a champ. I occasionally shot family portraits for myself and friends and the photos were an obvious step up from the D90's sensor. My only gripe with the camera is when I shoot raw (which is all the time) the camera shoots at 5 FPS and the buffer gets bogged down at 5 to 6 frames even with a class 10 SD card (90+ transfer rate). I normally don't "spray and pray" with photos but with hockey slap shots it would be nice to have a quicker FPS and a larger buffer. So with that being said, I have sold my D7100 and went to a full frame Nikon D610. I was enticed with the new Canon 7D mark II, but I am too entrenched with Nikon gear so I didn't make that move. So far with the D610, I will get 6 FPS and shoot up to 14 frames before the buffer starts to bog down with my limited use so far. I have recently shot a hockey game and the photos came out spectacular. I actually like the full frame sensor for hockey and being able to capture the action closer to the net with my 70-200mm 2.8 lens. I will be shooting low light portrait soon and I will express my thoughts and feelings. I used this camera for a surprise sunset marriage proposal. As usual, the female (who is a family friend) was late and the light diminished to lower levels than I would wish for. The camera focused well and I did not have any issues with focusing. At the conclusion, the camera handled this situation very good and the photos came out great. So my final thoughts on the D7100, I am glad I upgraded to the D610. I will miss the focusing points of the D7100 but I can live with the D610 focusing points. I really like the ability of the 6FPS and shooting up to 14 frames per second of the D610. I loved my time with the D7100, but, I am glad to have upgraded to the D610. Who knows if Nikon's D7200 comes out I might have to try it out…

Nice surprise!

I own a D700 and D800, not owning a crop camera since the D300, and wanting a more pro feel and arrangement than the D7000, I was awaiting the D400. The reviews were good on the D7100 and I wanted a lighter body to pack into the woods for wildlife photos, so I pulled the trigger. The IQ is fantastic on this AA filterless model. The AF is very good, I get good exposures in the aperture priority mode, dual SD slots, etc. My only nit is this: I use an "L" bracket, and when I swing the camera to portrait orientation, I can't slip bracket into clamp with the MC-DC2 attached to the camera...Grrrr! I'm on a workaround on this issue. All else with this fine camera is simply top notch. Thanks Nikon!

Really fast, beautiful photos!

By

from Undisclosed

I moved up to this camera from the D5100. I was ready to move on to a more advanced body, and the D7100 was perfect! What I noticed first was the how quickly the auto focus locked in. You can go from having the camera off to snapping a perfectly focused shot in about a second. Everything this camera does is fast. The images have come out looking gorgeous! I do mostly nature and landscape photography, but also like to takes pictures of my kids, and the D7100 does a fantastic job of getting those shots of the kids running and playing. If you can't afford to step up to the full frame bodies, as well as having to buy all new lenses, then this camera is perfect. Whether you are using a prime lens, or a zoom, this camera will take photos you can really be proud of.

Best DSLR..!

By

from Undisclosed

I have been using this DSLR since one year and i am now finding an excuse from my work to take this camera out for a trip and shoot . Picture clarity is awesome and i felt like it as complete DSLR. If you are a PRO.. this is the DSLR you are looking for. Focussing is very fast and that`s a great thing to capture moving targets,. Strong build and whether proof. Only minus i found was lack of aperture control in movie mode gets a facepalm

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
GAIL G  I bought this after reading all sorts of camera reviews from Ken Rockwell. I am loving it so far.
Shopper  WHAT DOES DX MEAN?
DON H  "DX" refers to the sensor size. Most camera makers make "pro" type bodies with large sensors. They also make lesser expensive bodies with smaller sensors. Nixon refers to these sensors as DX format (versus the larger format "FX" sensors in the pro bodies). The DX bodies are generally about half the price of the FX sensor bodies and have their own line of lenses, which are also identified with the DX desgnation. I have a D7100 and D7000 and I get quite acceptable results with both cameras.
ERNEST F  Is this a USA model or a "gray" market camera?
RAN Y  I think this is a USA model.
