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.
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.
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!
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.
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
This was my first dslr. I have had it for about 18 months. When it works it takes amazing pictures but it rarely works. Owning this camera has been a very frustrating experience and it makes me sad because I really enjoy photography and was hoping that the new camera would be a big step forward. The problem is that the sensor always seems to be dirty. I rarely change lenses so I don't understand where the dirt comes from. I have had 1000s of pictures ruined. The camera is now at Nikon for the third time. The first two times they would not tell me what was wrong with the camera but it came back repaired free of charge - they even paid shipping both ways the second time. Now it is there for a third time but the warranty is now expired. It seems to me that there is something defective with the camera. Which is Ok these things happen Ã¢â‚¬"" most people seem to not be having problems. I wish Nikon would just admit it and replace the camera. Then I can write a nice review and we can all be happy. I will try and update this when I hear back from the Nikon repair shop.
Always wished to get this one on a good deal. Then I realized that it does not make sense to save couple of bugs and end up in missing the fun altogether. When you want to enjoy technology at its peak, just go for it, otherwise you will never enjoy the moments. I'm pretty much sure no one would have regretted their purchase after investing in D7100.Here are some of the coolest features which I liked about D7100:50+ Auto Focus points and they are customizable. Faster Auto focus. Two slots for SD cards and kind of RAID support in camera and customizableU1 and U2 user dial mode. Larger sensor size- 24 megapixel. Customizable menu for quicker access to the function you often use more frequently. Feels sturdy and safe when i hold it on my right hand [BTW,,I'm lefty], but still feels secure and comfortable on right hand.I did not like about this was on Attached LCD, Wish they had TILT vari- angle display on d7100 too. I can live with this deficient feature as compare to the tons of features this camera can offer. Learnt few tricks and ways to look at the subject during shooting...Since this camera was much popular in market, there are plenty of DVDs/books/YouTube videos published on how to use this camera. Most of them will help us on how to get onboard with this camera. Man!! I'm glad that, I own this camera now!!!.
High resolution DX sensor and comparatively less weighted body is very interesting.. Frame rate also excelent according to the resolution. 1080x1920/60i movie mode is the best video feature in this DSLR..
