Nikon D7100 Description
The enthusiast-targeted Nikon D7100 is a flagship DX-format camera by Nikon that hit the shelves in March 2013, as a prosumer model that succeeded the D7000. The D7100 became the first Nikon DSLR to eliminate an optical low-pass filter (OLPF) resulting in better image quality. Hidden in the Nikon D7100's magnesium-alloy and polycarbonate shell are some good upgrades over its predecessor such as the upgraded AF system, 51 AF points (15 cross-type) and the ability to focus in extremely low light. The Nikon D7100 also has a larger 3.2-inch 1.2M dot LCD that features an RGBW display. The Advanced Wireless lighting is a wireless remote operation offered by Nikon to the owners of multiple Speedlights and the built-in flash can be used in Commander mode to trigger remote flashes. Nikon D7100 measures 5.35 x 2.99 x 4.21 inches and weighs 1.69 lbs.
The camera houses a 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor with an ISO range from 100 to 6400 and a viewfinder with 100% frame coverage and 0.94x magnification ratio. The Nikon D7100 offers video recordings of 30p and 25p with full-time autofocus and built-in stereo mic and gives a spot white balance in live view mode. The DX mode allows for 6 frames per second continuous shooting and 15 megapixels still captures at 7 frames per second in 1.3X crop mode. The crop mode also lets you record 50/60i movies as this mode gives an increased focal length of 2X. Users can instantly transfer their image to their smartphones and devices over WIFI. The Nikon D7100 also allows remote access and control of the camera from your smartphone, complete with live view, which can be a creative way of taking self-portraits or group shots. Another small yet very practical upgrade over the previous model is the well-implemented Auto ISO program that was first seen in D800, and then on the D5200. The Auto ISO program in the Nikon D7100 lets the camera automatically set the minimum shutter speed according to the focal length of the lens in use, with five user-controlled settings to choose from.
