Nikon D7100 specs

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

Based on those specs, it seems that Nikon will really merge the D7000 and D300 product lines - what I reported back in November last year.

    So it’s just the EXPEED 3 and not the EXPEED 3A?

    Are 8 FPS even possible on the EXPEED 3? That would be more throughput than the D4, but the Wikipedia entry seems to suggest the processor isn’t the bottleneck there.

  • Babs

    Two SD slots…ugh. I wish it had at least one CF.

    • Zelf

      Why? SD are cheaper and just as fast? Am I missing something?

      • RC

        No they’re not. CF is faster.

        • Zelf

          I use CF on my d700 and SD on my D90. The speeds on all my cards are the same 45mb/s.
          16go sd cards are about 40$ 16go CF are 80$.
          The only thing I see is that I need an adapter to get my photos out ouf the d700. And since I travel….it’s a pain in the ***.
          But I guess anyone decide for himself ehat is best :o) Just trying to understand.

      • Gah Leable

        Exactly, that’s why SD is better.

    • Gah Leable

      Yea, cuz everyone loves being stuck back in 2004.

  • Gah Leable

    It is available at Adorama now! I just pre-ordered mine!!!!!

    • Fred Flintstone

      I already received mine!

    • #D400

      I returned mine, dust problem….-.-

      • Fred Flintstone

        Grr, mine is backfocussed!

        • Fred Flintstone

          And still no official announcement from Nikon admitting the D7100 has a problem!!!

          • Global

            When are they coming out with the D7200 !? I’m switching to Canon!

    • 800mm f/2.8 DX VR

      LOL :D

    • http://500px.com/yoan_mitov/ Yoan

      damn, not that left AF point issue again >_<

  • Fred Flintstone

    Interesting to see what lenses get bundled with it – c’mon 16-85 f/4!

  • Amit Mittal

    So, except for the sensor size, and the absence of the anti-aliasing filter how is any different from D600? Advantage 1 for each.

    • Anonymous

      Price of the body, price of lenses, ISO ability, color depth, and possibly other things like size.

    • VikingAesir

      D600 uses 39pt AF, and probably a worse (slower, less accurate) AF module.

    • Amit Mittal

      :-( So much for an “upgrade” to the D600. :-P

  • malchick743

    Still not near the D300 league.
    Where’s the CF card slot? 10-pin remote jack? PC sync socket??

    • AndyWas

      2003 called and wants their state-of-the-art back.

  • benZ

    Oh man ! which do i choose now .. D600 or D7100 … grrrr !!! HELP !

    • Zelf

      Do you need full frame and hi iso? do you have money to invest in FX lenses? If yes go for D600 else go for the d7100. Don’t see what is complicated :o).

    • Fred Flintstone

      Flip a coin

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/57T3PX6S3OXBER3ZNBOOMGBUPI Tony

      If you shoot mainly telephoto then D7100
      For everything else, D600

  • Kevin Warner

    Does it comes with free sensor cleaning kit???

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/57T3PX6S3OXBER3ZNBOOMGBUPI Tony

      No, it has a built in ‘windscreen wiper’. One lifts the trigger button cap and fills with a special cleaning liquid. Sensor is automatically cleaned every 10 photos.

  • Gah Leable

    Will Best Buy have them in stock tomorrow?

  • grant torres

    This D7100 with that sensor and no AA filter would give my manfrotto and tokina 11-16 a lot of love. And hopefully with the Samyang TS too, a poor architectural photog’s dream pairing!

  • TerraPhoto

    Obviously a mostly complete merge of the D7000 and the D300 replacements. I was hoping for a little higher fps for wildlife. I wonder if it is a magnesium body and weather sealed.

  • Brian

    Wonder what the buffer is? One of the big downfalls of the D7000. Nothing here gets me excited.

    • Anonymous

      According to Nikon’s website it’s 1/3 the size of the D600′s buffer. Pretty pathetic.

  • No AA? WTF?

    The no AA filter thing is REAAALLY freaking me the eff out… If it had been a d7100/d7100e thing where you could pick whether to have it or not, that would’ve been one thing, but to just have it be strictly no AA as the only d7100 model? Wtf? There have been tons of articles from all the most highly reputable photography sources in the industry explaining the pros and cons of the non-AA cameras, and they basically all said the same thing, that other than a VERY specific, narrow range of type of photography, it is worse to not have an AA than to have one. Like, you need to be shooting at a specific aperture, and scene-situation for it to actually be the rare circumstance in which it gives you an image quality edge over an AA camera, and then in like the other 99% of shooting situations for the avg photographer, it would be much better to have an AA. This is really pissing me off, cuz this is the camera I was waiting for and planning on getting for my next DSLR, and now it appears it’s just gonna be a strictly non-AA camera?? WTF???

    • Sassafras

      Have you been drinking? You sound like you need AA.

  • hao

    I want to dump my D600, nothing is better than this except the sensor which collect dust.

    Everything is up on Nikons webste now

  • Anonymous

    Wow! 6FPS for one whole second before the buffer fills! This really replaces the D300s!

  • Phil

    HEY GUYS DX IS DEAD I KNOW ALL ABOUT CAMERAS THERE WILL BE NO MORE DX CAMERAS. NO MORE PROSUMER MODELS YOU HAVE TO GO FULL FRAME.

    So some people will have some egg on their face now.

  • btdown

    6fps..lol!

    Nothing special //

    I will go for D600 anf buy some expensive FX lenses

  • olidie

    I am pretty sure that Nikon killed the semi-pro D300 line and unfortunately the semi-pro D700 likewise. Nikon will stay with D600 & D800 and nothing like a D600 Sensor in a D800 body inbetween :-(

  • Meng the Wisest

    F**k it. This one has better AF system than the D600? A nature photographer´s dream if the AF works at least as good as the D300S.

  • http://www.facebook.com/joegeske Joe Geske

    For months and months and months everyone on here complained that the d7000 wasn’t a true d300 replacement because of it’s AF system… Now we are given a d7100 with what appears to be a pro grade AF system. Now everyone is complaining that it uses SD instead of CF and that it has to many MP, and the magnesium body just isnt high enough build quality, or that ISO 25600 isnt enough.

    Give me a freaking break guys, CF is faster yes, but with the new sandisk pro cards running around at 95mb/s the differences are shrinking fast so stop complaining and be happy it has dual card slots which the d300 didn’t. I am so fed up with people complaining about the MP race, none of you design sensors, so stop thinking that just because a camera is lower MP that the sensors will produce less noise. A lot more goes into a sensor’s signal to noise ratio than just the size of the photosites. Yes maybe they could eek another stop out of a 16mp sensor, but maybe canon would make a 21mp sensor and people would think the Nikon was inferior and we wouldn’t even have Nikon around anymore. Also the idea that the files are to large is such a joke, grow up and buy a bigger memory card and harddrive. Lastly the build quality should be at least as good as the D600 which sure it isnt a D800 or D4, but it is better than a canon 5d and those seem to hold up just fine.

    Stop your whining, Nikon gave you DX guys exactly what you wanted and for significantly less than what the D300 was priced at.

    • Jer

      Give me a Hallelujah!!!!!!!!

    • Tom McGill

      CF is not faster. It hasn’t been since SanDisk’s last generation. I hate the fact I have a CF and a SD slot on my D800. I would prefer 2 SDs.

      I have tested them myself over USB3 and SD Card is superior in both read and write across the board.

    • YRaj

      LOL…thank you.

  • Shawn

    OK, I know I’m going to get yelled at for this, but:

    “Based on those specs, it seems that Nikon will really merge the D7000 and D300 product lines – what I reported back in November last year.”

    That would be like saying that the D5200 “will really merge the D5100 and D7000 product lines”, just because it has an upgraded AF and mildly improved other specs.

    I’m not buying it and I think time will prove this out, but I guess we all shall see.

  • YRaj

    NIKON,

    Do we finally have a camera in the league of the 7D at that price point? is the 6fps with great focus tracking going to beat out 8fps.
    How is the weather sealing? If it is good then we have an awesome camera at this price point. Bring on the images at 6400, let’s take a peek at them.

  • Pat Mann

    This camera still has a sub-par buffer – that high shots-before-slogging number is JPEG only – and no AF-On. Not the pro camera, still leaves lots of room for a D400. This definitely isn’t it.

  • nawab

    Hi Admin! When Nikon keeps mentioning “Image sensor unit without an optical low-pass filter (OLPF)”, does it mean there is possibility of another version with AA filter (like D7100E)? Normally we do not say something like- “That person who does not wear specs…………..”, unless there’s another who wears one!
    Anyway, thanks to Nikon, you saved my day with the D7100

    • http://nikonrumors.com/ Nikon Rumors

      I doubt that there will be another D7100 version

  • JR

    From the D70 enthusiast to D300 semi-pro now to D7100 enthusiast camera, guess I was an enthusiast all along…great camera.
