Nikon 7100 has been anounced
« on: February 20, 2013, 06:41:19 PM »
Unleash the power of Nikon’s DX-format HD-SLR system.
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 DX-format CMOS sensor. Your photos and videos will
come alive with brilliant detail and vibrance. 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 1.5x 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: 1080p at 60i/50i/30/25/24 fps or 720p at up to 60p for ultra-smooth
slow-motion sequences. 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.
Durable magnesium alloy 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 OLED display element for bright,
high contrast data readout and provides approx. 100% frame coverage.

51 focus points and 15 cross? Bah, only Nikon sissies need that, real photogs use 9/9 (60d) or 11/1 (6d) for an added challenge :-p

I love the marketing.... "a blazing fast 6 frames per second"... sounds way better than saying "a relatively slow 6 frames per second".... kind of reminds me of a Simpsons episode where grandpa says "He used to be smart as a chimp but now he's as dumb as an ape"

The real question with Nikon is usually if the highest fps only persists for the first few frames and then changes to crawl-mode (this is the case with the original d7000 and the d600) or if the buffer is deeper this time. So not to defend Nikon, but 6 continuous(?) fps with 24mp(!) in raw(?) mode imho would qualify as fast, it's the data rate vs fps that matters.

More marketing speak....

"Combine that with fantastic ISO performance at both ends of the spectrum—down to ISO 100 and up to ISO 6400"

Kind of makes 6400 sound like the upper limit.... and who cares what the lower limit is, that's why there ND filters.. I can slap a ND8 filter on at ISO100 and shoot like it's ISO12

You mean there is marketing speak in a press release? Stunning!

Comparing it to the 7dII spec list that got posted the other day, Canon's variation would top it in AF and frame rate, but we'll see if video features also means headphone jack, etc. And how will it compare at both ISO 100 and 6400. And that's not even counting the price; gonna be interesting to see what they both come in at.

May well be that Canon can out-do Nikon in the APS-C realm

Did I miss the spec for the number of dust particles deposited on the sensor per shutter release?   ;D

interesting stuff.  7D2 should spank in all areas with the possible exception of the sensor.  Is this really the 7D2 competition? or the D600?  pardon the question I'm not that familiar with Nikon lineup.  In any case  this will be an interesting show to watch, esp the DxO treatment.   It will give Canon a little time to update the firmware with last minute features :-)

meanwhile, hopefully, this will bring down 7D2's initial price a little bit.  hopefully again, the CR2 specs isn't just a hoax.

Detailed Nikon D7100 specs:
 •24.1MP CMOS sensor
 •6fps
 •No AA filter (similar to the D800E)
 •51 AF point, 15 cross-type
 •Built-in HDR function
 •2016-pixel RGB sensor
 •3.2" 1,229k dots LCD screen
 •Dual SD card slots
 •EXPEED 3 processor
 •ISO range: 100-6400
 •100% viewfinder coverage
 •Video: 1080p @ 60i/50i/30/25/24 fps plus 720p @ 60p
 •Compatible with the WU-1a wireless mobile adapter

One thing I found interesting was the

1.3x crop mode:
 This mode boosts your lens' focal range by 1.3x which translates to a 1.95x crop, much like a Micro Four Thirds camera. This gives you extra zoom capabilities without the hassle of changing lenses.
