Overview

The Nikon D7100 brings you high-end D-SLR performance and advanced functions in a compact and lightweight body. Capture awe-inspiring photos with its large 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS and precise 51-point autofocus system.

Heavyweight performance. Lightweight body

The D7100 combines high-end performance and a range of advanced functions with the versatility of a lightweight and compact body. Its large 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS and precise 51-point autofocus system let you capture photos that will inspire envy.

The D7100 offers the incredible image quality found in our top D-SLR cameras. At its core is the newly developed DX-format 24.1-megapixel CMOS and legendary EXPEED 3 engine. Capture stills and videos in all lighting conditions with its low-noise performance and high ISO sensitivity range. For maximum sharpness when capturing highly detailed subjects, the D7100 does not employ a low-pass filter - making it ideal for landscape photography.

A portable performer

The D7100 combines high performance with the agility of a compact and lightweight body. Its advanced high-speed continuous shooting allows for approximately 7 fps. The D7100 features a versatile 51-point autofocus that ensures your subjects are always in sharp focus. Furthermore, a 1.3x crop of DX function offers on-demand telephoto effects to your stills and videos, letting you bring the action closer when needed.

Clearly superior

Shooting through the D7100's glass pentaprism viewfinder is a true joy. This unique viewfinder offers 100% frame coverage at 0.94x magnification - letting you precisely compose your shots. Setting information is clearly presented in the viewfinder's organic EL display - a technology that is sharper and more energy-efficient.

Quality you can see

For those times when you prefer to frame your shots through the monitor, you will appreciate the extreme clarity and wide viewing angle of the D7100's 3.2-inch 1,229k-dot resolution TFT LCD monitor. This newly developed screen features RGBW alignment technology, offering improved brightness and resolution compared to RGB screens.

Precise control made simple

The high-performance D7100 is incredibly easy to control. A press of the enhanced button provides quick access to the camera's current settings and retouch menu. In Live View mode, an innovative Spot White Balance function automatically sets the white balance using the colour of a selected area. This eliminates the need for grey cards and can even be done while using a telephoto lens.
