Nikon D7100

DPReview has side-by-side photos of the D7100 and D7000, from the front, and the back.

Specification highlights:

  • 24.1 MP (megapixel) APS-C CMOS sensor with no optical low-pass filter in front.
  • New 51-point Multi-CAM 3500DX AF (autofocus) system with 15 cross-type sensors.
  • Accurate AF is possible even in lighting measuring just −2 EV (ISO 100, 20°C), roughly equivalent to moonlight.
  • The center focus point (cross-type) supports autofocusing with lenses having a maximum aperture of f/8. This allows users to enjoy ultra high-speed AF shooting with a compact and lightweight system when a telephoto NIKKOR lens with a maximum aperture of f/4 (such as the Nikon 70-200mm f/4G VR or Nikon 500mm f/4G VR) and a teleconverter (2x, such as the Nikon TC-20E III) are used.
  • 3D Color Matrix Metering II, 2,016 pixel RGB sensor and Scene Recognition System.
  • 1.3x crop mode (equivalent to 15.4 MP resolution and 2x field of view in 35mm terms).
  • 1080p at 60i/50i/30/25/24 fps or 720p at up to 60p video capture with stereo sound through the built-in microphone.
