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

I would recommend this product
After much consideration I have upgraded from a D3100 to the D7100. Wish I had made the upgrade sooner. Althought I am still getting used to the controls it has a familiar feel and logic to it. The image quality that I am now getting is far better than on my old camera so I am very happy.Ordered from Wex, great service and speedy delivery. I use for wildlife, landscapes, people, tabletop and abstract.

Finally...I got one!
from Rayleigh, Essex
My youngest daughter purchased a Nikon D40 shortly before embarking upon a photography "A" level course but for various reasons that I need not relate lost interest in photography even after achieving a very good exam result. Her camera lay idle for some time until, that it, I bought it from her together with some other gear. I had been interested in photography in my youth (I had a Minolta SRT 101 with a 50mm 1.4 lens) but work, marriage, children, etc., didn't give me much opportunity (or the funds) to keep on with it. Over the years my circumstances have changed and my interest in photography was rekindled. Acquiring the D40 was the "first step". I have been adding "bits and pieces" to my gear list ever since and subscribe to a monthly photographic magazine. When my eldest daughter got married in December 2013 one of the guests had a Nikon D7100 that I was able to examine and handle and from that moment in time I coveted one and was determined that I would upgrade as soon as circumstances (and money) permitted. Recently I was in a position to upgrade and thought long and hard about which camera to purchase – the D7200 had been marketed earlier this year – but in the end went for the D7100…and I have not been disappointed. It is of course much more complex than the D40 and I am still learning but whist some photographs have left a little to be desired, others have been so good that I can't believe I took them! It is truly a wonderful camera and I would recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone wanting to upgrade without going down the FX route.

First class camera
By Big ted
Bought as a second body but now used as main camera
Worthwhile upgrade from a D7000
I upgraded from a D7000 & I'm very glad I did.
Excellent Camera for the Enthusiast
By David B
Not a camera for a casual photographer, this camera is really aimed at and most suitable for the enthusiast. It packs so many professional features taken from pro cameras into a rugged body that is a joy to use. Yes it has an "auto" setting - but who would want to use this as a point and shoot camera?Definitely a step or two up from its predecessor the D7000, and worth the investment.

Really Like This Camera. Would Recommend
from Bury St Edmunds
Really like the fast shutter speed and all the extra iso. Upgrade from my Nikon 3100 and I am glad I made the choice. Still learning how to do. But this one is for the long haul.

What a camera!
from On a beach
I wanted to upgrade from my trusty D3100 (which I bought second hand)and, after quite a bit of research, decided on the D7100. I also took advantage of the free Nikon grip offer that came with the purchase and I have to say that the two items together have given the camera a great balanced feeling with my 70-300mm lens.There's not a lot I can find 'wrong' with the camera, it does everything I ask it to do. The only downside has been sourcing a plastic screen guard (like the one on my 3100 which clips to the eyepiece). But that's a small price to pay for a camera that's worth it's weight in gold.
