Unleash the power of Nikon's DX-format HD-SLR system.

Nikon D7100 D-SLR product photo
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.

Capture every detail true to life

Pure, sharp images

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's DX-format CMOS sensor. 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 1.3x crop factor, and the D7100 is the ultimate tool for those seeking a lightweight DX-format HD-SLR.

Speed and precision in harmony

High-speed shooting with flawless metering and autofocus

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.

Wireless sharing and control

Compatible with the WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter

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.

Create movies that amaze

Dazzling 1080p videos, slow-motion and time-lapse sequences

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: 1080@50/60i, 1080@24/25/30p or 720@30/60p. 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.

Creativity on demand

The D7100 will inspire your creativity to new heights. 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.

High-end design

The D7100 has the comfortable handling and durability of a high-end Nikon camera. A durable magnesium alloy body 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 electro-luminescent (EL) data display provides approx. 100% frame coverage.

WI-FI COMPATIBILITY

This camera's Wi-Fi® capability using the WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter can only be used with a compatible iPhone®, iPad®, and/or iPod touch® or smart devices running on the Android™ operating system. The Wireless Mobile Utility application must be installed on the device before it can be used with this camera.

Great DSLR This is my second d7100 & I love them both..Have been with Nikon since 1980 & still have two F3 s ,lenses & Motor drive. I have had good service with al my Nikons & never had a problem with any of them. For my money Nikon is the best ! April 4, 2014
Great Upgrade I upgraded from a Nikon D3000 which was a great camera in its own right. The D7100 has a solid feel to it. Buttons are nicely arranged to get to common features easily. I like that the movie button is position closer to the shutter switch instead on the back of the camera. There are plenty of options to get creative with your composition. I'll enjoy taking this out to shoot as often as I can. The lens makes a big difference with the quality of the pictures this camera is capable of producing. The user buttons are a great idea. I've used them many times to keep track of my favorite setup while I experiment with other settings. It gives me the freedom to return to settings that I'm comfortable with. Great job, Nikon, for making a great camera and for rekindling my passion for photography. April 3, 2014
NIKON 7100 THIS CAMARA NIKON 7100 IS MY SECOND AND I M VERY HAPPY WITH THIS LAST I HAVE VERY NICE PICTURES I RECOMMEND TO FUTURE BUYERS March 30, 2014
definitely a step up from 7000, makes buying a 610 a difficult choice I started with a D80 7 years ago. Previously I had ProSumer versions of Canons and earlier than that I shot film with Minolta's. After 4 years with the D80 I went with a D7000 which was a great improvement but not quite the jump I was hoping for. Noise and sharpness were my two issues. I spent a lot of money buying good glass, mostly FX lenses (28-70 2.8 and 70-200 2.8) which should shine on a DX format camera. I was all ready to jump to the 610 (bypassing the problematic 600) but I found that the sweet spot of my lenses wasn't so sweet any more and I really missed the extended reach I got on a DX frame. Sure I could fake it but why go FX then? I test drove a 7100 and was shocked at the sharpness and the noise handling. The AF modes as well as the 59 point system is just amazing on focus clarity. So far I have not had to clean my sensor - something I had to do regularly with the D80 and D7K. Today I run a Tokina 11-16 2.8DX, Sigma 17-50 2.8 OSM, Nikon 28-70 2.8 and then the Nikon 70-200 2.8 VR and this setup provides a phenomenal range. I purchased an aftermarket grip, previously always went with Nikon, and have been reasonably happy. One minor complaint is the 7100 requires its own special USB cable otherwise the 7100 is better in every way. March 25, 2014
Excellent Well worth the upgrade from the D7000. IQ and autofocus are outstanding, well worth the money. I only wish I was as good a photographer as the camera deserves. March 10, 2014

Although there is not a Time Lapse mode like the D600, the D7100 does support Interval shooting like the D600. You can then use software to create your time lapse movie.

Answer: 
99% of the time, the quality of photographs will be IMPROVED without the anti-aliasing filter. That filter causes images to be 'slightly' less sharp, in the interest of preventing moire distortion. Removing the filter will cause images to be slightly sharper, and that is always a good thing.

Answer: 
There is no hard cover like the D7000 has, but I use a Zagg cover that works great. The D7100 cover was not available at my local Best Buy, but I bought a larger one and cut it to size. You can get the D7100 from the Zagg website. I was leaving for Singapore and could not wait.

I'm looking for something to replace my D300s, but something that's not too pricey. Not sure if the D7100 is in fact a good replacement for that, or if Nikon actually HAS a successor to the D300s planned for the future (like a D400 or something).

Answer: 
There are some lenses that will not work. IX-Nikkor lenses cannot be used. Page 295 and 296 of the User's Guide list 20 notes about lens incompatibility or reduced capability.

The Type G or D AF Nikkor, AF-S, and AF-I Nikkor should all work. There is a warning on page 78 of the User's Guide about using AF lenses other than AF-S in manual mode. When using a non-AF-S lens in manual, you must switch both the lens and camera to manual. Failure to do so could damage the camera or lens.

I understand waiting for third-party support in CS6 and Aperture, but getting a camera that comes with no image-editing software and can't export native files for other programs is a tad frustrating.

Best for portrait? D600 with 85mm 1.4 or if your budget doesn't allow then the 85mm 1.8.

Answer: 
Cant really compare them as they are two different machines, the main difference being DX and FX but that is just the start, there is too much to list on here, saying that, if it were me id go for the D600 as it will produce better dof at smaller apertures, ideal for portraits.

Answer: 
There can be some lag due to focusing. The actual shutter lag is minimal.

The default setting for AF-C (Auto Focus - Continuous Servo) is Shutter Priority. The shutter releases when the shutter release button is fully pressed, regardless of the focus.

The default setting for AF-S (Auto Focus - Single Servo) is Focus Priority. The shutter releases when the shutter release button is fully pressed and the image is in focus. If you pre-focus by pressing the shutter release button halfway, then the shutter will release almost instantly when the shutter release button is then fully pressed.

AF-C and AF-S can be set to Shutter Priority or Focus Priority. These are set in the Custom Setting Menu, item a1 and a2. See page 331 in the User's Guide.

I have recently upgraded from an old D50 to the D7100. So I do have some experience with Nikons and AF in general (>10 years), but I am stumped to make sense of the myriad of settings and options and why one would choose one or the other. I've read the pages in the manual (over and over), and still I"m confused - and usually I'm not a technophobe or a dummy!
For instance, I usually want to shoot landscapes, architecture, sky and water, etc. but also occasionally the inside of a church. I want to be able to react quickly if necessary, but also have some control which part of a shot is in focus whenever I have time to compose the shot. Should I set the camera to AF-A, AF-S, AF-C, AF-F...? Single point, 5 points,...51 points?? Lock lever on "lock" or not??? What other settings influence the result? Any help would be appreciated.

Answer: 
For most of what you are photographing I would use AF-S (Single servo) with a single selectable focus point. This will allow you to pick the point of focus. Leave the Focus Lock lever in the dot position so that you can move the focus point off center with the multi-selector. This is useful when your subject is off-center, which they often are. You could also center on your subject and half-click the shutter release then recompose the shot. I would also use the latter technique to quickly compose shots. When you have time to compose your shots, you can use all 51 focus points to select the optimum point of focus. When you need to be a little more reactive, you can drop this to 11 points. This way the multi-selector will move the focus point more coarsely, but cover the area more quickly. I do not think it would be useful for the scenarios you described, but the 3D modes are useful for subjects moving toward or away from you, because they will predict the point of focus based on the subjects relative motion. I never use the AF-A because it can be unpredictable, and Auto area-AF focuses on who knows what in your scene. In live view you do get face priority, but not through the viewer.

When printing using PictBridge, you can select to have the time and date the photo was recorded.printed on the picture. However, NEF Raw photos cannot be printed this way. You could use in camera processing to create jpeg photos to print.

I do know there is one included with the MB-D15 grip. I am trying to find a back up. I have had no luck finding one anywhere on the web. If it is not readily available now I will try later.

Answer: 
For volleyball, when courtside, I use the 85mm f/1.4 at the smallest aperture the ambient light will allow, 1/500- I/1000 sec. and auto ISO to stop the action. When in the stands, It's the 80-200mm f/2.8.

Answer: 
I have been very pleased with my D7100. Compared to my menu controlled D5100, the external controls on the D7100 make adjustments a breeze. Being able to fine tune the auto focus on my lenses has stepped my photo quality up a notch.

Highly recommended.

Answer: 
I bought a used Nikon 18-200 mm f/3.5-5.6G VR Nikkor-Zoom lens for my D5100 and it worked great. I sold it and bought the Nikon 18-300 mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II Nikkor-Zoom when Nikon had a $300 off sale. The 18-300 fits my D7100 great, and it is 265 grams heavier and 23.5 mm longer than the 18-200 mm. You will be very happy with that lens.

I used the 18-200 from days so bright I needed an ND16 filter to night city scapes. I filmed my grandsons soccer games with an ND4 filter and still got great actions shots. For normal indoor lighting situations, I used it with a speedlight off camera bounced off the ceiling.through the built-in diffuser and with the reflector extended to provide some fill light. It worked well in all those situations.
