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):

    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.

      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.

        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.

              Comments about Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

              I haven't had a chance to use it a lot but the little bit that I have, I can tell this is the best money I've spent on a camera. I took pictures of my daughters chorus concert and they came out great with/without flash. The pictures are so clear and detailed. I upgraded from a Nikon D40 and what an upgrade! I love Nikon cameras. I just need more time to use it and learn all it does.

                I use the camera for equine sports photography. I love its multiple frames per second rate of capture.The pixel count allows for versatile treatment in post-production activity as well. I bought a second body as a back up. I would like for a lock on the shutter speed knob. Sometimes I find I've accidentally changed the shutter speed when shooting shutter priority.

                    I have not used it much so I can't say at this time. I will be doing some barrel racing next week lot of action shots, I hope it is as good as my D300s. I can do another review in a month or so I should know by then.

                    Image quality much better than the D90. NEF compressiuon and size options a plus when shooting continuously. Video quality superior to D90 and audio, using an external microphone, is excellent. Use it for travel and sports. Only downside is the poor buffer performance when shooting sports.

                    Love to take landscapes and wildlife shots with my wife on weekends.Enjoying experimenting with the 5 frame HDR feature! Also like the fast multi-shots for birds in flight. Still learning about all the outside buttons and features.It a little heavy when combined with the nikon 18-300 lens. My wife's d5100 is much ligher and she is much better at composition then me. I know a newer camera won't make me pass her up but a guy has to have a new toy!

                      Comments about Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                      I use the D7100 for portraits, landscapes, and birding. The spectacular 1/8000 second shutter and 6 frames per second burst is just incredible. And the lack of an Anti-aliasing filter makes my images even more clear than before, even with the same lenses! I mostly use the Nikon 28-300 VI II lens for front-yard bird shots. I also love the addition of the locking mode dial. This was the driving force behind me buying this to replace my D7000. I missed many shots because my mode dial had moved after carrying it with my Black Rapid camera strap. The 24 megapixel sensor lets me crop really heavily and still lets me print big. It's incredible the clarity even at 6400 ISO. I was convinced I needed full-frame, then realized it was not full frame I needed but just more megapixels. The noise is almost non-existent and can be fixed with lightroom upon import if needed. I shoot raw exclusively. Also the shutter is more quiet than the D7000. I LOVE THIS CAMERA!

                          I use the D7100 for landscape and architectural photos, mostly.
                          It gives me the colors and detail necessary for all types of photography. I also like being able to use older MF lenses i.e. the beautiful little 24mm f/2.8 AI-S.
                          I do sometimes miss the articulated LCD of my D5300 and the 7100 is noticeably heavier, but these are just minor complaints

                            I upgraded from a D3200 to the D7100 and it is a world of difference. The first thing you will notice is the size and weight, the D7100 is huge compared to the D3200 and I can actually hold it comfortably with my big hands, adding a battery grip makes it even better. The D7100 has so many more options and allows you to program buttons to certain settings which is really nice. It is a very fast shooting camera and I have been thrilled with it so far. Also, it has two SD card slots which I didn't even think much of when researching this camera but have found that it is a great feature to have.

                            Comments about Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                            I recently had most of my camera gear stolen including my well-used D90. It was an old body but never let me down and it really performed quite well. I replaced it with a D7100 after quite a bit of research as I COULD have moved up to FX (D610) but decided that for my uses- predominantly wildlife with some landscape and candid shots- the D7100 was the better choice. The extra FPS just were not worth the premium.I initially charged a battery and began shooting and got worse results than with my D90, which I knew VERY well! After about 30 minutes of "dialing in" my settings and I was matching my best previous results and a short while later I was improving upon them. The D7100 is still "better" than I am: I have much to learn before I am ready to count on (usually!) getting the shot in any light, at any time. But I will get there and I know the resulting shots will be better than ever. Focus is fast, low light performance is great and noise is very low up to 1/2000 (so far.)I do wish the buffer was larger: shooting raw I seem stuck around 5 or 6 FPS when bursting.I also wish that card writes were faster- either fully utilize my 95mb/s cards or perhaps use two controllers and alternate which card to write to, but this is really a small thing: I didn't have too many problems with the small buffer on my D90 either.The D7100 is a great upgrade from the D90 and any earlier consumer body from Nikon and unless you really NEED FX, 36megapixel or a big buffer the money is better spent on better glass, I believe.
