AF CAPABILITY COMPARABLE TO THE D4 PROFESSIONAL MODEL – HIGH-DENSITY 51-POINT AF SYSTEM THAT INCLUDES COMPATIBILITY UP TO F/8
With the newly developed Advanced Multi-CAM 3500DX autofocus sensor module, the densely located 51 focus points, supported by an algorithm equivalent to that of the D4, deliver amazing capturing power. AF detection is available down to an impressive -2 EV (ISO 100, 20°C/68°F), which is the brightness equivalent to a subject illuminated by moonlight.
Fifteen cross-type sensors cover the most frequently used center area. The center point performs as a cross-type sensor even at f/8. This enables AF shooting, with the effective aperture value slower than f/5.6 and at f/8 or faster when an AF-S teleconverter is attached to the lens. For example, accurate autofocus is possible with the effective aperture value of f/8 by attaching a 2.0x teleconverter to a telephoto lens with maximum aperture of f/4. By combining a teleconverter with compact and lightweight DX-format system, you can enjoy supertelephoto AF shooting without bulky equipment and expand the photographic opportunities.
Furthermore, when the image area of 1.3x crop of DX is selected, the angle of view becomes equivalent to that of a lens with about double the focal length in 35mm format. As the cropped frame is almost entirely covered by the focus points, the camera demonstrates even more powerful capturing capability. Of the 51 focus points, 11 can be chosen to shoot with, for quicker focus-point selection.
Not only phase-detection AF but also contrast-detect AF, which employs image sensor data, during live view shooting or movie recording has become significantly faster than that of the D300S. Whether in still-image shooting or recording movies, the AF system supports accurate and comfortable focusing.
1.3X CROP OF DX THAT ENABLES SHOOTING DISTANT SUBJECTS WITHOUT BULKY EQUIPMENT, FOR BOTH STILLS AND MOVIES [NEW]
The D7100 features two image areas for still images – DX format (23.5 x 15.6 mm) and 1.3x crop of DX (18.8 x 12.5 mm). The format in use can be easily confirmed in the viewfinder. For videos, the D7100 also employs DX-based movie format and movie image area based on 1.3x crop of DX.
In DX format, the angle of view becomes equivalent to that of a lens with approx. 1.5 times longer focal length*1. In the newly employed 1.3x crop of DX mode, the angle of view becomes equivalent to that of a lens with approx. 1.3 times longer focal length*1 than in DX format. As a result, the image area becomes equivalent to that of a lens with about double the focal length*1. With this camera, you can get closer to distant subjects even though it employs a relatively lightweight, compact lens system. In the 1.3x crop of DX mode, the 51 focus points cover nearly the entire frame, attaining extremely high capturing power even when shooting moving subjects.
The 1.3x crop of DX achieves an image size of approx. 15.4 megapixels, a sufficiently high pixel count for general use, which delivers high-resolution images. Combined with high-speed continuous shooting at up to approx. 7 fps*2 enabled in this mode, this camera reliably captures moving subjects.
With the D7100 s compact, lightweight body that can only be realized by a DX-format D-SLR, combined with compact, lightweight lens system, you can travel light but still depend on it to capture decisive moments in high-speed continuous shooting, while precisely acquiring distant subjects with its high-performance AF system.
NEVER MISS THE MOMENT, WITH HIGH-SPEED CONTINUOUS SHOOTING UP TO APPROX. 7 FPS
The D7100 incorporates a high-speed and high-precision sequential mechanism, that drives mirror and aperture independently. Combined with the faster image-processing capability of EXPEED 3 and the CMOS image sensor compatible with high-speed readout, the camera achieves high-speed continuous shooting at a maximum of approx. 7 fps*1, 2 for up to 100 frames*3. The release time lag is approx. 0.052 s*2. This camera enables light-equipment shooting and increases your chances of capturing decisive moments.
*1When shooting in 1.3x crop of DX mode with JPEG/12-bit NEF (RAW) selected as image quality. The frame advance rate drops when 14-bit NEF (RAW) is selected. Approx. 6 fps is achieved in DX mode.
*2Based on CIPA Guidelines.
*3When JPEG normal and large-size image are selected. When JPEG fine and large-size image are selected, a maximum of 33 frames in DX and 73 in 1.3x crop of DX are available.
Faster initial AF detection for quicker focusing, realized by the new algorithm developed for the D4
The D7100 achieves faster initial AF detection by employing the algorithm developed for the D4. The speed you need to effectively capture decisive moments has been radically boosted.
SCENE RECOGNITION SYSTEM THAT ATTAINS HIGHLY PRECISE AUTO CONTROL, UTILIZING THE 2016-PIXEL RGB SENSOR
Precisely determining the situation of the subject prior to shooting, Scene Recognition System delivers highly accurate auto control. With the D7100, it utilizes information from the 2016-pixel RGB sensor and image sensor to analyze brightness and color of the scene accurately and applies this to autofocus, auto exposure, i-TTL flash control and auto white balance control. Especially in phase-detection AF using the viewfinder, the high precision of auto-area AF is supported using subject identification, while that of 3D-tracking is supported utilizing subject tracking. Also, face-priority AF is available using face detection information from the image sensor during live view or movie recording. In playback zoom of a face in still images, the face can be zoomed in on, allowing easy confirmation of the focus.
EXCELLENT OPTICAL VIEWFINDER, SUPPORTING COMFORTABLE, ACCURATE SHOOTING
High-quality viewfinder optics with approx. 100% frame coverage and glass pentaprism, that assure truly comfortable viewing
As the D7100 s viewfinder optics deliver comfortable viewing, supported by other measures not listed in the specifications, including eyepiece lens coating, it helps you concentrate on your subjects. The approx. 0.94x magnification ratio* allows you to comfortably recognize all the visual elements including the viewfinder information display.
The D7100 newly employs a high-intensity, high-contrast and energy-saving organic EL display element for the viewfinder information display beneath the image area. While it ensures high visibility under bright light, it also contributes to faster response in low-temperature conditions. Grid lines can also be displayed in the viewfinder (in DX format), a feature that is convenient for composition in landscape or architectural shooting.
VIRTUAL HORIZON MAKES YOU AWARE OF HORIZONTAL TILTING, FOR VERTICAL SHOOTING TOO
The D7100 comes equipped with a virtual horizon, which shows horizontal tilting. When using the viewfinder, you can choose displaying the indicator either for horizontal shooting or vertical shooting. During live view or movie shooting, the indicator is displayed superimposed on the monitor image.
SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASED VISIBILITY IN BRIGHT DAYLIGHT, WITH A NEWLY EMPLOYED RGBW ALIGNMENT – WIDE-VIEWING-ANGLE, APPROX. 1229K-DOT, 8-CM/3.2-IN. LCD MONITOR WITH REINFORCED GLASS
The D7100 incorporates a newly employed wide-viewing-angle, 8-cm/3.2-in., high-resolution LCD monitor (approx. 1229k dots). The monitor employs a newly developed RGBW alignment for increased brightness. Combined with the integrated glass-and-panel structure*, it greatly enhances visibility of the monitor under bright conditions. The color reproduction range is now equivalent to that of the D4 and D800 series. The clear, beautiful display images bring more comfort to live view, movie recording and image confirmation. The ability to magnify playback images up to approx. 38x (large-size images in DX (24 x 16) format), is a boon for quick and accurate focus confirmation.
*Equivalent to that utilized in the D4, D800 series and D600.
ENJOY MORE CREATIVE EXPRESSION EASILY WITH THE BUILT-IN FLASH INCORPORATING A COMMANDER FUNCTION
The D7100 has a built-in flash with a guide number of approx. 12/39 (m/ft, ISO 100, 20°C/68°F) which covers the same angle of view as a wide-angle 16mm lens. The superior flash control accuracy only Nikon can provide is highly praised by professionals and realizes flash shooting with natural light. Featuring a commander function compatible with Advanced Wireless Lighting, it has an ability to control up to two groups of optional Speedlights (auxiliary lights) wirelessly. With this feature, you can illuminate your subjects from various directions and obtain a wide range of creative expression; from shooting flowers vividly, sharply rendering people s facial features and other details to effectively reproducing the subtle texture of subjects.
