Nikon D7100 review

The Nikon D7100 finally gets a long-awaited successor to date: The 675 grams, is to make the D7100 D300s legs and play in the same class. The mounted image sensor of the new camera is already known from the D5200. In addition, the Nikon D7100 shoots photos now with full 24.1 megapixels. Besides the more accurate meter with 2016 pixels is also a new image processing engine for use: The EXPEED 3 should work very quickly and efficiently. The new camera also works easily with ISO set to 6400 (or 25,600).

Compare Nikon D7100 with similar Camera to select the best one

That Nikon has changed in feel and control concept not too much compared to the D7000 (and other DSLRs the Nikon family), I find welcome. In general, the Nikon D7100 is not a “revolution” in comparison to D7000. But many small changes and additional features add up to a noticeable improvement of the intrinsic values of the camera.

The locking mechanism is there as their predecessors up to 150,000 cycles participate. The camera also snaps with up to 6 to 7 frames per second series photos. However, the peak values, the effective resolution of 15.4 megapixels are reduced. On the low-pass filter of the DX-series of cameras will miss the Nikon D7100. The technology is designed to help at the expense of technically possible resolution in suppressing the moire effect. The case of the new camera is splash and dust resistant and is made of magnesium alloy.

The 3.2-inch display dissolves with 1.2 million pixels and should be one of the best DSLR ads. The autofocus with Nikon”s flagship D4 measures as 51 focus points with 15 cross-type sensors positioned in the middle. The viewfinder covers thanks to the professional design of the camera from 100 percent of the crop. With movie recording in Full HD movies can be recorded with a resolution 60i/50i and 30p.

Nikon D7100 With Full HD Video

New a switchable 1.3-fold-field option is added to the normal DX format. This 1.3-fold telephoto effect provides an effective resolution of 15.4 megapixels and allows in full HD video mode, frame rates of up to 60i or 50i, in the standard format (APS-C or DX) are only 30p, 25p or 24p possible.

Battery Life:

No complaints. I have gotten a couple hundred shots off and still have half battery life. I do expect to buy another battery at some point for times when I might be taking a couple thousand shots over a weekend.

All in all: Recommended! On the whole the Nikon D7100 is not a revolution, but a great development of the already very good D7000. For me personally, some very useful things that has been added as example the 100% view on a button, great video mode, faster AF, handier package. The camera so I can recommend without hesitation and will have lots of fun with her.

It’s not about what you can do for your Nikon. It’s about what your Nikon can do for YOU! And if it’s time to upgrade or switch to a Nikon Family.
