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.
I purchased the D7100 a couple of years ago and it is still a very reliable camera. I brought it on a cross-country drive where I'm sure it bounced around in the car going over potholes on the interstate. It's 24mp sensor captures amazing detail with excellent clarity recorded on two SD slots. The setting can be changed for various slot configurations, but I prefer RAW image files to be saved on both cards so I have a backup in case one fails. It's a great camera to use beyond "P" mode as I always have it set on Manual. I like that it fits comfortably in my hand and can make manual adjustments easily without having to take my index finger off the shutter button. I can adjust the aperture with my middle finger using the front command dial while my thumb can adjust the shutter speed on the rear command dial or select on any of the 51 focus areas using the multi-selector without having to recompose the framing in the viewfinder. If I need to adjust the ISO, I can easily hold down the ISO button with my left thumb while adjusting the sensitivity with my right thumb on the rear command dial all without taking my eye away from the viewfinder. Using only available light, I have had to use ISO 3200, of course quality is degraded and obvious noise in the image, but still tolerable. I've used the D7100 to photograph sports and corporate events and never had to stop because the buffer was full and wait for images to save on the SD cards. The D7100 is able to keep up with the actions I want to capture. It offers plenty of creative possibilities including video which I've dabbled with plugging a wireless microphone. Live View is nice, but prevents aperture adjustment and selecting a different focus area once started. Still, it's a great value for all that it offers and what the camera can do. I've been more than satisfied with my purchase as I enjoy photographing my Pomeranian during our travels and adventure together. I hope you find pleasure with the D7100 to capture memories of whatever is special to you.
great movies, excellent prints glad i made the choice instead of the 610 save 500 dollars and can still use my 3rd party lenes
I wish I could write a good review on this, I really do. Mine was faulty from the start, batteries will discharge overnight with the power switch in the off position. I have had this 6 weeks and have only taken about 6 pics with it due to the issue. Think you would be better off buying a NEW product instead of a refurb that may or may not work.
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?
Bought a used Nikon d7100. Camera was in perfect condition. Great price and I'm very happy with this purchase. Avi and the Adorama team are great to work with. Wonderful experience!! I will be continue to use Adorama as my go to camera store.
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.
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.
As a photo enthusiast, i use this for all my photography, Wildlife, birds, grandkids, etc. I upgraded from a d5100 And love it. 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.
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 outâ€¦
The D7100 is awesome. I Really like the selective color option. Very pleased with my purchase.
