The D7100 DSLR Camera (Body Only) from Nikon is a high performance, compact DSLR camera with high resolution photo and Full HD video capability. The 24.1MP DX-format CMOS sensor provides superior images with accurate colors and, designed without an optical low-pass filter, it maximizes its resolution for exceptionally sharp details. The EXPEED 3 image processor brings with it stable, high-speed response, including a continuous shooting speed of up to 6 frames per second. With an ISO sensitivity range that expands to a 25600 ISO equivalent, low-light photography is sharp and detailed with less noise and fast-moving subjects are captured with more accuracy and less blur. At the low end of ISO sensitivity (ISO 100) images display vibrant colors with rich tones.

Autofocus performance on the D7100 is on par with professional-level DSLRs and includes a 51-point focus area with 15 cross-type sensors for detecting both vertical and horizontal variations to achieve fast, precise focus. The central cross-type sensor works down to f/8, which is an advantage when using compatible tele-converters. The D7100 features the option of a 1.3x crop which allows you to get closer to your subject, as well as providing more image size options and faster processing of your images, including a faster 7fps burst rate.

Full HD 1080p video is supported on the D7100 and offers professional-level control including continuous autofocus, manual exposure control, a built-in stereo microphone and an external microphone and headphone jack. Recording at 60i, 50i, 30, 25 and 24 frames per second is possible and an HDMI output allows for direct screening on an HDTV. At 720p HD you can record at 60p frames per second for smooth slow-motion sequencing.

A 3.2" 1229k-dot TFT-color LCD provides 100% coverage for accurate playback and live view composition and the pentaprism optical viewfinder features an OLED display element for clear reading of the camera's settings without removing your eye from the finder. Dual SD card slots offer large memory capacity and the ability to designate which images go to each card. A built-in flash with commander function supports Advanced Wireless Lighting and a hot-shoe/accessory mount is available for speedlights. The D7100 is lightweight and durable with magnesium alloy top and rear covers and weather sealing to prevent dust and moisture damage. 

The D7100 is compatible with all NIKKOR F mount lenses, both DX and FX format, and can provide wireless connectivity with the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter. With the WU-1a and Nikon's free Wireless Mobile Utility app installed on your smartphone or tablet, you can instantly share images and use your phone or tablet as a Live View monitor.

24.1MP DX-Format Sensor + EXPEED 3 Image Processing System
With its 24.1MP CMOS image sensor and Nikon's EXPEED 3 image processing system, the D7100 DSLR delivers high quality images with low noise. The EXPEED 3 image processor combined with 14-bit analog/digital conversion provides even tonal gradations while managing color, contrast, exposure, and noise resulting in brilliant image quality. EXPEED 3 also provides the D7100 with fast response time, autofocus speed and a rapid six frames-per-second (fps) burst speed up to 100 images.
Omitted Optical Low Pass Filter
The D7100 is designed without the optical low-pass filter which will allow the sensor to capture images with exceptional sharpness and detail.
Full HD 1080p Video
With full-time autofocus and manual exposure control during video recording, a built-in stereo microphone and an external stereo microphone jack, headphone and HDMI jacks, the D7100 achieves exceptional cinematic reproduction and quality. Record in several high-definition formats: 1080p at 60i/50i/30/25/24 fps or 720p at up to 60p for ultra-smooth slow-motion sequences. Dual SD card slots give you additional recording time, and an all new 60i function enables smooth playback on HDTVs or external monitors.
3.2" 1229k-dot LCD and Optical Viewfinder with OLED Display
The D7100 features a new 3.2" ultra-high-resolution 1,229K-dot LCD monitor which provides crisp image playback, menu adjustments and Live View shooting. The pentaprism eye-level optical viewfinder contains a low-power consumption OLED display element for bright, high contrast data readout and provides 100% frame coverage.
Fast Autofocus
The D7100 uses 51 focus points, including 15 cross-type sensors for detecting both vertical and horizontal contrast variations, to achieve fast, precise focus.
1.3x Crop
Get closer to your subject with the new 1.3x crop of DX sensor. Using the 1.3x crop option allows the 51 autofocus points to cover almost the entire frame as well as providing longer equivalent focal lengths and faster image processing.
Built-in HDR
Built-in HDR (High Dynamic Range) combines shots taken simultaneously at different exposures into one rich, high-contrast image. When shooting high contrast scenes with bright spots and shadows, HDR will create a balanced image in which no details are lost.
Picture Control
Picture Control gives you instant access to the color characteristics of your images and allows you to tweak colors for optimization or completely redesign the look of your image for creative variations.
Spot White Balance
Spot White Balance control for Live View shooting makes setting the white balance as easy as pointing to the area in the frame that should be white.

In short, the D7100 is the best all-rounder dSLR Nikon has ever made. Some FX Nikons may have one or other superior feature, but as a collective of capabilities (if you're taking a single camera to the unknown), the D7100 is unmatched. The D7000 is no slouch either, and should be seriously considered if on a budget.I've been a Pentax user in the 70s, Canon from the late 80s to the 2000s, and went to Nikon a few years ago. Up to now, my favorite dSLR was a D7000 that I absolutely loved for being sort of a "digital F6": lightweight, compact, and incredibly fast for a consumer body. The only cons that came to mind regarding the D7000 were the lack of 30fps at 1080p and, more importantly, the limited memory buffer (more on that latter).Upgraded to a D800 but, to my surprise, it didn't fit my needs. I don't print larger than 75x50cm, and I don't crop much - therefore, I absolutely have no need for giganormous 36 megapixel pictures that bring even the most powerful computers to their knees. Also, the D800 is considerably slower than the D7000 for almost everything, notoriously when shooting energetic children. I did like the huge FX viewfinder, and the low noise at high ISOs - but then again, I use live view's zoom feature when doing critical focusing work (rendering the large viewfinder superfluous) and I have some fast lenses (1.4, 1.8, 2.8) that allow me to shoot dimly lighted theater plays at pretty low ISOs on the D7000. Sold the D800 to a studio photographer (where it rightfully replaced a Hasselblad!), and went back to the market for a new camera.I briefly considered the D4. Off course my first con was it's stratospherical price, but the disappointment started when I saw that it "only" has about the same dynamic range and color precision of the DX D7000. The lack of a built in flash (great for quickies and as a CLS commander) was also a con. The mix with the memory cards, including a format that no one uses was the final nail to the D4's coffin in my book, regardless of it's unmatched speed (or buffer limit).Then I borrowed a friend's D600. At first it seemed like the perfect camera (a FX D7000!) - only, it was not. Even slower than the D800, with some limitations that even my ancient F4 could beat (only 1/4000, only 1/200 flash sync). But the worst was the AF system: the same DX system of the D7000 in a FX frame - that means all 39 AF points are cramped in the middle of the viewfinder, leaving 3/4 of the frame without any AF points! With that in mind, I found that all Nikon FXs bodies had at least one serious flaw that I couldn't live with. Then came the D7100…The D7100 is a D7000 on steroids – which is a great thing, since I loved mine. I don't really need 24 megapixels, but the lack of an antialiasing filter indeed does show: it's pictures are considerably sharper at large sizes, and I've yet to see any Moiré. The D7100 is as fast as my benchmark D7000, and is actually slightly faster in the new cropped mode. 30fps at 1080p and a headphone monitor jack are movie pluses (don't see much use for the built in stereo mic, though: if quality is needed, must go for an external one, anyway; but the new position of the built in mic, on the top, is much better the front mono mic of the D7000). OLED display in the viewfinder is a first to me, very visible indeed. But the biggest advance to me is the new AF system: it's simply the best in the current Nikon line. The 51 AF sensor points cover most of the screen (actually ALL OF IT when in cropped mode), is capable to focus even in REALLY dark situations (EV -2!) -rendering the AF assistant light obsolete-, and works great with F/8 lenses (or with teleconverters).The only cons I could find in the D7100 so far (1300 pictures in 12 days of use) were the limited buffer, and the lack of built in GPS and Wi-Fi (not common at the time of the D7000's release, but several competitors offer them in 2013). The latter can be added as external accessories (I own both, and wrote specific reviews about them), but the non-upgradeable buffer's memory is so inexpensive today that I guess the limit is on purpose: if the D7100 had a large memory buffer, there would definitively be fewer professional sports shooters going for the ancient (yet 50% more expensive) D300s or the 5 times more expensive D4.I would like to finish with a reminder that I still find the D7000 a better VALUE. B&H is selling factory refurbished ones for [*] of the price of a brand new D7100, and it's [*] the same camera. You can invest the money you saved on a couple of F/1.8 lenses (35mm AF-S and 50mm AF-D), and still have change for a second EN-EL15 battery.With that said, my conclusions are: the D7100 is the best Nikon dSLR at this moment, with great value and outstanding performance. But if money matters, the D7000 is still the best bang for the buck.

First of all, This camera is great! except for the bad quality control! It is easy to use and has all the convenient features. However, Nikon really has the quality issues for recently product. I have D600 send back for cleaning the oil spot problem. Then I brought the first D7100, right out of the box, after about 50 shots there is a single oil spot showed on the image. Then I returned it and ordered the 2nd one. I think the first one is the bad luck since most of people don't have that issue. However, the 2nd one is even worse, after 10 test shooting, I found there are about 3 huge oil spots on the picture already. Tried 2 different lens, No change. Nikon really need seriously solve this issue! Except the oil problem, D7100 is an great camera. If you want to get one now, consider this issue first.

      Comments about Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

      I've been into photography since the 60's and have been delighted over the years with advances in cameras and film stock. Only in the last few years have I been dragged into the digital age. This is the camera that finally convinced me to permanently shelve the N90s and F4.
      The fact that there is full compatibility with all of my Nikkor lenses is a main plus. Combined with the ability to change the image capture size to allow faster burst shooting was also a great feature.
      In practice the DX sensor size vs the FX size does not seem to be an issue for the work I shoot.

              The camera came very much on time, as promised. I barely started using it, so I cannot comment on it yet. Guessing from my other experiences with Nikons (this is my 3rd one, 2nd DSLR) I will be very happy with it once I learn to use it according to its capabilities.

              The spare battery and the camera bag, included in the package free, are very appreciated.

              This is my first purchase from B&H. I will be back!

                I'm a professional commercial photographer and this makes about the 7th DSLR I have purchased. Of them this camera is the most accurate in focusing, the best at handling low light situations, and delivers the best image. I don't like how some of the controls have been moved from where they were on my D300, but am getting used to it. It is also too slow writing to the card for situations where rapid shooting is necessary such as sports or music photography, but overall it is my favorite camera.

                for me this camera is an upgrade from my nikon D5100, which was fully accustomed to using the working mode of the D7100 is a little different, we can say that more professional. feels great in the hands, works great, it is a wise decision for those who want to move from entry level to a higher echelon.
                characteristics and all have read and know it is a camera that offers a lot and at considerably low price.
                I recommend it to anyone looking for a high performance camera.

                Comments about Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                Packed with features, affordable pricing, not too much of a difference from the D610. In fact, it pairs great with the D610. I use both bodies at the same time, the 610 with its Fx sensor is used to get the most of wide angle lenses. Being able to shoot at true ~24mm is a God-send. Love it. And on the long side of lenses, slapping my 70-200 on the 7100 gives it the 1.3x crop factor, giving me more reach. On top of that, you gan crop sensor shoot giving you an additional 1.5x crop factor. So now you are looking at your 70-200 reaching out to about 400mm at F/2.8! love it.

                On top of that, you can shoot up to 7 fps in crop sensor mode.

                Great IQ with quality lenses.

                I wish I had the budget to roll with a D4s on each shoulder. I don't. This certainly brings power along with the D610. Its what I can afford, and as one editor once told me... "I don't care what gear some one shows up with, as long as I get color accurate, sharp, and beautiful photos full of editorial content to feed the press."

                Whether a paper, magazine, or a bridezilla.... feed your monster with the images, not the gear!

                  I have had for just a short while, but had the opportunity to photograph an outdoor wedding. Performed beautifully. Still have a long way to go to master this camera, but I think Nikon really produced the perfect machine for the advanced enthusiast to professional photographer who wants a lot of bang for the buck.

                      I upgraded from a D40X which performed very well but I always thought it was limited by its DX lenses. Buying the D7100 proved to be an outstanding improvement and I am delighted by the performance of my DX lens collection, too. The camera has an a fantastic set of technologies and the menu system is feature rich. The camera shutter is very responsive and the low-light performance is nothing short of amazing. A solidly-built, fast handling, programmable camera. Photos look great on my Samsung 65"HDTV. Highly recommended!

                        This is a great, full featured camera. Pictures and video are stunning. I shoot in raw and, as all Nikons, the pictures are not as clear as I like them. For some odd reason, the pictures are intentionally blurred, but using the accompanying software you will notice the sharpness slider is all the way to the left. When you begin sliding the sharpness control to the right be prepared for fabulously clear shots. Have taken shots at all ISO levels and am impressed with the lack of noise. Super camera and super price, for a DX camera can't imagine a better image!

                            I upgraded from a lower end Canon Entry level DSLR and the difference is astonishing. This takes fantastic low light shots, super fast auto focus and great continuous auto focus capabilities. Super sharp pictures and easy to use. I never had even seen a Nikon menu before and I can navigate it with ease.

                              After searching for years, I have discovered what I consider the best hardware configuration for wildlife photography. Using the 1.3x image area option of the D7100, a 400mm lens becomes 800mm using 35mm guidelines. When used with the Nikon 80-400mm zoom lens, it becomes a great combination for capturing moving wildlife, particularly birds in flight. The sharpness and focus of the D7100/80-400mm lens combination is the best that I have used for this purpose.

                                Purchased this for wildlife and sports photography.With that in mind, I have not used this in any mode except for Aperture priority shooting raw files. I has almost exclusively had the 300mm f/4 with or without the TC-14II attached. The control layout is one of the reasons I purchased this over the D7000. It matches the D600 except for the addition of the 'i' button which for me serves no purpose.The low light capability is good. Not on par with the D600, but really good considering that it is a 24mp sensor packed into a DX chip. I had Canon 10d and 20d bodies and this being four or more generations newer smokes them in low light capability while having 400% more resolution.It has a crop mode, (ie... digital zoom) but that is fairly useless, and I would rather crop post than in situation. It is better to allow the tip of a wing or the ball leaving the bat to move in the frame and crop later than loose the shot. \All of the controls and build are excellent Nikon standard. No it is not a 1970's F2 or 1980's F3, and I would not be at all surprised if dropping it from three feet onto a sidewalk broke it open.

                                  Without a doubt, one of, if not THE best choice for those that understand how to make adjustments to a camera. The U1 and U2 settings allow one to adjust all important settings to just the way one wishes with a simple click of a switch. Also the camera is easily adjustable for individual situations with the extensive, dedicated switches. After the specific needs are finished with, a simple reversion to one's personal settings is easily accomplished.

                                  When handing the camera to a novice, they (said novice) can always choose a typical "auto" setting if your preset choices are not appropriate for the situation. It's truly a win-win camera for such situations.

                                  A bit of overkill for those that lack the knowledge or will to fully understand and take advantage of all that this camera has to offer. Nonetheless, this one has extensive capabilities and features should one choose later to take advantage of them, while maintaining the automated simplicity for their present abilities.

                                    Comments about Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                                    I researched many cameras and finally decided on the Nikon D 7100. I like the feel and easy handling and I'm able to use my present lenses on this camera. It is far advanced from my old trusty Nikon D80 that's been everywhere with me. I am still learning the features of my new camera and would recommend it to others.

                                      I have had a D70s since about 2000 and have enjoyed its use. I decided to step up to a D7100 , 24megapixels compared to 6. With al the other advanced features this camera has it is a pleasure to use and all my other Nikon lenses fit it.

                                      Comments about Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                                      I upgraded to the D7100 from the D3200 (although I have also owned the D80) and I LOVE it. Things I love most: higher ISO capabilities (like, a LOT higher), two SD card slots, kelvin white balance settings, U1 and U2 settings, dedicated buttons on the camera body for white balance, ISO, etc. The video quality is great for my uses (mostly home videos of my kids) although it looks like I will be investing in an external microphone to avoid the (very loud) sound of the focusing motor. Over all very happy with this camera.

                                        Wow--I'm really impressed with the capability of the D7100-it should really improve my photographic skills. They did a great job with ISO range, focusing elements, etc.

                                          I do lots of nature photography plus kids sports. The camera is such a pleasure to use. I have a Nikon D300 which is heavy. The 7100 gives me the same, and more, great features, plus it is soooo much lighter. It has been a total pleasure. Gives great photos, great color.
