Nikon D7100: A Capable DSLR Camera
Marketed as an upgrade from the D7000, the Nikon D7100 features a new sensor, an updated AF system, and a better build quality to promote handling comfort. Here's a rundown of its specifications and features.
Impressive Design and Build Quality
The D7100's body is composed of magnesium alloy and is weather-sealed, making it a durable camera that can withstand the elements. It has a premium design with well-placed and ergonomic dials and buttons. You will find the mode dial sitting nicely on the left shoulder with a small center button to help prevent any accidental mode changes. Much like its predecessors, you will also get the manual, semi-manual, and automatic modes. Not to mention, there's a special-effects mode that comes with an assortment of selections to choose from, as well as 2 user settings slots where you can store your customized profiles. On the right shoulder, you will see the status display, metering mode, and exposure compensation buttons, as well as a tiny movie record button.
Remarkable Image Quality
The D7100's image quality is remarkable in both low-light and bright environments. It offers an outstanding performance of 6.3 frames per second, improving the quality of images. The D7100 is also equipped with a powerful Expeed 3 image-processing engine that enables you to capture stills in a quick and easy fashion. On top of that, this Nikon camera allows you to capture videos without flickering that appears when you focus on stationary subjects, thanks to its improved contrast in Live View.
