The Power and Agility to Leap Foward. Take advantage of the agility and high-performance features built into the compact and lightweight Nikon D7100 DX-Format Digital SLR Body (Black) . Enjoy the kind of breathtaking, high-resolution images that are only possible when the EXPEED 3 image-processing engine is paired with a powerful CMOS image sensor unit that’s designed without an optical low-pass filter. Now you can have all the mobility, resolution and power you need to close in on your target and capture it exquisitely — all yours, via the Nikon DX format. The D7100 is ready to go wherever inspiration calls you. Your hunt for spectacular images starts here.
High-density 51-point AF system that widely covers the frame
With Nikon’s newly developed Advanced Multi-CAM 3500DX autofocus sensor module featuring a high density of 51 focus points (including 15 cross-type sensors), the D7100 can focus sharply on some of the most elusive of subjects. This AF system also achieves a wider AF detection range down to -2 EV and faster initial detection, just like that of the D4. The center cross-type sensor is compatible with f/8, which means that you can autofocus on distant subjects even with an effective aperture of f/8 when a 2.0x teleconverter is attached to a telephoto NIKKOR lens with a maximum aperture of f/4.
The 1.3× crop of DX lets you get closer to distant subjects and achieves fast continuous shooting of up to approx. 7 fps
In addition to the regular DX-format size, that enables shooting at an angle of view equivalent to approx. 1.5x 1 lens focal length, the D7100 also has a 1.3× crop of DX option, which instantly provides an angle of view equivalent to approx. 2.0x 1 lens focal length, while delivering a sufficient image resolution of approx. 15.4 effective megapixels. In this mode, the 51 focus points cover almost the entire frame, realizing extremely high capturing power. Add to this approx. 7-fps continuous shooting 2 , and you can see how the D7100 captures fast and erratic subjects with greater efficiency.
Glass pentaprism optical viewfinder realizing approx. 100% frame coverage
The optical viewfinder, that features clear viewing with approx. 100% frame coverage and magnification ratio of 0.94x, supports comfortable and precise composition. The high-intensity, high-contrast, energysaving organic EL display element, newly employed for the viewfinder information display beneath the image area, also contributes to the excellent visibility. The response of the display in low-temperature conditions has been further improved.
Newly employed, wide-viewing-angle, 8-cm/3.2-in., approx. 1229k-dot, LCD monitor with an RGBW alignment for enhanced visibility
Thanks to its new RGBW alignment, the newly employed, large, high-resolution LCD monitor features improved brightness. Combined with the integrated glass-andpanel structure, it greatly enhances visibility, even under bright conditions.
Exquisite detail reproduction thanks to 24.1 effective megapixels and an image sensor unit designed without an optical low-pass filter
In order to maximize the high resolution realized by its high pixel count, the D7100’s image sensor unit does not integrate an optical low-pass filter (OLPF). This system successfully brings out NIKKOR lenses’ sharp rendering performance to make full use of the 24.1-megapixel resolution achieved with the Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor, delivering stunning reproduction of details with depth.
High-performance EXPEED 3 image-processing engine
Nikon’s exclusive image-processing engine EXPEED 3 handles multiple tasks at ultra-fast speeds while maintaining high precision in order to maximize the potential of 24.1 megapixels in stills and movies. The result: superior color reproduction, rich tonal gradation and high image quality at high ISO.
ISO sensitivity expandable to ISO 25600 equivalent with superior noise reduction
The D7100 is capable of clear and exquisite image quality across ISO 100 to 6400, which can go up to Hi 2, an ISO 25600 equivalent. The camera’s intelligent noise-reduction system delivers smooth, saturated color without sacrificing fine detail, even with low-contrast subjects, in both stills and movies.
Spot White Balance that measures white balance during live view
Spot White Balance allows you to easily acquire preset manual data by choosing a specific area of the scene during live view. Pinpoint white balance setting is realized according to your subject or a part of it in the monitor. This eliminates the need to use a gray card or change lenses, even when employing super-telephoto lenses. This comes in handy when shooting in mixed-lighting situations like stadium sports events.
Exquisite Full HD video quality
Using an image sensor unit with 24.1 effective megapixels, designed without an optical lowpass filter, and employing the EXPEED 3 imageprocessing engine, the D7100 records Full HD video with exquisite detail reproduction. Your cinematic potential is expanded further with D-SLR shooting advantages such as the wide range of interchangeable NIKKOR lenses. For the smoothest recordings of fast-moving subjects, use 1280 × 720 at 60p, or try the movie image area based on 1.3× crop of DX with 1920 × 1080 at either 60i or 50i. The D7100 also has a built-in stereo microphone. The file size is compressed in H.264/MPEG-4 AVC format, providing you with a maximum recording time of 29 min. 59 s for a single clip.
Multi-area mode Full HD D-Movie with movie image area based on 1.3× crop of DX
The D7100 offers you two movie image areas: one based on the DX format and the other on the 1.3× crop of DX. Using the 1.3× crop of DX delivers an angle of view equivalent to approx. 2.0x lens focal length — an amazing amount of reach to the subject. Also helped by the agility of the compact, lightweight DX-format system, you can boldly get closer to even smaller, more distant subjects.
