Who is the D7100 aimed at?
The Nikon D7100 is aimed at the passionate and serious photographers looking to further their skills and get the best image quality possible for a wide range of photography applications. The Nikon D7100 is compatible with all of Nikon's DSLR lenses and is the perfect choice for those creative types looking to explore a variety of photographic genres and techniques.
Why choose the D7100?
A great all-round option for serious enthusiasts looking to take their photography to the next level and who demand a camera that conveys reliability and performance.
Engineered for Exceptional Image Quality
At the core of the Nikon D7100 is a new 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor, designed to render the truest, most detail-rich images possible and brilliant HD video. The innovative sensor design delivers the ultimate in image quality by defying convention; because of the high resolution and advanced technologies, the optical low pass filter (OLPF) is no longer used. Using NIKKOR lenses, the resulting images explode with more clarity and detail to take full advantage of the 24.1-megapixel resolution achieved with D7100’s DX-format CMOS sensor.
Driven by Nikon’s exclusive EXPEED 3 image processing engine, the D7100 realizes a focus on image quality that extends beyond staggering sharpness to outstanding images with a wide dynamic range in a variety of lighting conditions. A wide ISO range of 100-6400 (expandable to Hi-2 of 25,600) allows for more versatile shooting to capture challenging conditions such as nature at twilight or even sports under less-than-ideal lighting. Even at higher ISOs, noise is minimized for both still images as well as when recording HD video.
New 51-Point AF System The D7100 features Nikon’s professionally proven and lightning-fast 51-point AF system, with a new Multi-CAM 3500DX AF module. Additionally, the AF system and exposure are augmented with Nikon’s 3D Color Matrix Metering II 2,016-pixel RGB sensor and Scene Recognition System, which recognizes the scene prior to shooting in order to adjust AF, AE, AWB and other parameters. The results of this system are accurate and even exposures, sharp details and vivid color, frame after frame. For additional precision, 15 of the 51 AF points are cross-type, and the center point is functional at f/8, giving DX photographers an additional telephoto advantage when using a teleconverter.
Rapid Response and Operation To help ensure the decisive shot is not missed, the D7100 can shoot at up to six frames-per-second (fps) at full resolution and up to seven fps when using the new 1.3x crop mode at slightly reduced resolution. Overall operation and image processing is swift, while startup and shutter lag is nearly imperceptible with a release time lag of 0.052 second (CIPA). Image data is also written to dual SD card slots, which accept the latest high-speed UHS-1 and SDXC cards.
1.3x Crop Mode Sports photographers take note: Building upon the telephoto benefits of the DX-format, the D7100 has the unique ability to shoot in a 1.3x DX crop mode for both stills and HD video. While in this innovative mode, shooters will gain an extra telephoto boost (2X), and a boost in burst speed to seven fps, with 15.4- megapixel resolution. Additionally, while in this mode, the 51-point AF array covers more of the frame, allowing improved subject acquisition and tracking performance through the viewfinder.
New High Resolution LCD The new, wide and bright LCD screen is 3.2-inches and features a super high resolution of 1,229K dots. Now photographers can easily compose and check critical focus for HD video.
New Viewfinder Nikon has implemented a bright and high-contrast new OLED data display within the optical viewfinder that makes it easier to read and see shooting data. When composing through the viewfinder, users see 100% frame coverage, essential for proper framing.
Spot White Balance A new feature for Nikon cameras, Spot White Balance allows for quick and precise white balance adjustment while shooting in live view. By selecting a desired point on the screen, users can set a custom white balance from a distance, even while using a super-telephoto lens. This is helpful for shooting video or when shooting under unfamiliar lighting when no gray card is available.
Durable Construction Built to perform in a wide variety of conditions, the D7100 is built to the same moisture and dust resistance specifications of the venerable Nikon D300S. For durability, the top and rear covers are constructed of magnesium alloy, while internally, the shutter has been tested to withstand 150,000 cycles. Despite its robust construction, the camera remains lightweight, weighing in at approximately 1.5 pounds (body).
Enhanced Interface To make it easier for users to quickly access frequently used functions, the “i” button has been added to the enthusiast-oriented control layout on the camera.
Sharing and Remote Shooting Simplified
Photographers know that moment when the shutter clicks and they have created something stunning which deserves to be shared. No matter where that moment occurs, whether in an urban landscape or isolated forest, they can now share their images wirelessly by an attached WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter.1 With this optional adapter the user has the ability to share images to a supported smartphone or tablet, shoot remotely from their device, and transfer photos from up to 49 feet away. The Nikon Wireless Mobile Utility application is available free of charge on Google Play™ for Android™ devices or from the App Store. When using the application, photographers can wirelessly transfer images from the camera to a mobile device and even remotely control the camera.
Capture Exceptional HD Video
For those looking to create multimedia content, the Nikon D7100 has a wide variety of innovative features for capturing HD video at various frame rates. With a press of the dedicated video record button, video can be recorded at 1080/30p, or at 60i/50i (in 1.3x Crop Mode) for optimal playback on many HDTV’s when connected via HDMI. The D7100 also provides the ability to record stereo sound through the internal microphone, or attach an optional external microphone such as Nikon’s ME-1, through the dedicated microphone terminal. To reference audio, the camera also features a headphone terminal. Users can also get creative using Nikon’s Creative Effects in real time. This feature lets users take advantage of modes like Selective Color or Color Sketch to create truly customized movies.
Full Control, Creatively
In addition to full manual controls, the Nikon D7100 features a variety of intelligent modes to create effects and special features so that users can unleash their creativity. Nikon’s Picture Controls can be applied to photo and video to change the color, tone and saturation of an image for creative control. When capturing still images, the same Creative Effects modes and filters available in video are also at the disposal of the user. By combining consecutive frames, the D7100 also has a high dynamic range (HDR) function to let users capture photos with a vast tonal range.
NIKKOR, Speedlight and System Compatibility
For 80 years, the NIKKOR legacy has been providing world renowned optics for photographers. The D7100 is compatible with Nikon’s dedicated DX-format lenses and more than 50 FX-format lenses. NIKKOR lenses offer the ultimate in sharpness and clarity in photos and HD video. For added versatility, the camera features a built-in flash, or can act as a commander in Nikon’s popular Creative Lighting System (CLS).
In addition to the D7100, Nikon also announced the WR-1 Transceiver for Nikon D-SLR cameras. This device uses the 2.4 GHz radio frequency for maximum range when communicating with the camera, extending the range and functionality2 for remote shooting applications. The communication range between WR-1 units is approximately 394 feet3, and 15 channels are available. Users also have the ability to remotely control a camera (with a WR-1 used as a receiver) attached by operation of another WR-1 (used as a transmitter), and also perform simultaneous or synchronized release of shutters on several cameras using the WR-14. Furthermore, there are a wide variety of options for remote shooting, which include dividing remote cameras into groups and controlling each group separately and interval timer photography. Remote shooting by combining the WR-1 with WR-R10/WRT10 wireless remotes is also possible5

About Me Photo Enthusiast
Comments about Nikon D7100 Digital SLR Camera Body:
This is a great all-round camera. The image quality is just stunning after upgrading from a D90 and the customisable buttons are a great addition. The additional 1.3 crop is really useful, the only trade-off being the size of the image, but still being 16 megapixel it is far front being a problem!The Hi ISO range is a too noisy. Up to 3200 is fantastic, and up to 6400 still beats 3200 on a D90. Size and weight are nice, you know it's in your hand but not to heavy to carry around on a trek through the woods and the weather sealing is another nice touch. Service from Wex was as amazing as always. Don't waste time reading more reviews, get this camera, you won't be disappointed.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great camera body and a big step up in many respects from the already good D90. I love this body and it will last me quite a few years as the D90 before it did.The only thing I don't like about it and it's not much, is the rather silly top left rotary switch lock which you have to depress before moving the switch to another position.Other than that tho a mega good purchase is the D7100.

So good I bought two!
By Grey old bloke
from South west
The title says it all. I had toyed with going full frame but an outing with the body and my 18 - 200 lens (the cheaper one) showed me just what it can do. I recently bought another compact (Sony RX100 Mk 11) as I use one constantly on my work travels but greatly regret taking it on holiday with me. Primarily I took it to learn how to use it as it will be just another work tool but cursed it time and time again as it (like all compacts) took so long to turn on that the moment I wanted to capture passed before it was ready. I so wished I had my D7100 with me a I know it would have done all I asked of it.

A good step-up from the D7000
Love the 24Mb sensor - great when cropping! The new built-in HDR feature is good. Not so sure that it was necessary to have a safety button on the mode dial but that's only a mild irritation.
Excellent camera gives top class results

About Me Getting started, Hobbyist/Enthusiast
There are so many useful features on this camera it takes some getting used to - the manual is clear and concise and even at 80 years old I find it easy to follow. In 'auto' mode the camera thinks for you - which is wonderful. I have tried every mode with excellent results. I am delighted with the picture quality which is excellent.
Great camera with loads of features
from Stoke on Trent
I upgraded to the D7100 from the D80 and there is a big difference. The overall feel and quality of the camera is higher and it produces much higher resolution images.I've also found the noise performance to be very good and the features to be very useful. For example the built in HDR function works very well. It enables you to increase the dynamic range of photographs without making them seem unrealistic which is the problem I've always had when attempting HDR after shooting.The addition of video is nice but I wouldn't say it's a strong feature of the camera. In most circomstances it performs well, however in high contrast it struggled to expose light and dark areas of the image (something that isn't a problem at all when shooting stills).Overall if it's still photography you're mainly concerned with this is a very good camera.
