Nikon D7100 Specs, Price and Release Date Announced

by Shane McGlaun

Nikon has announced a new DX-format digital SLR camera called the D7100, and it looks like a very capable camera for the price. It uses a DX-format CMOS sensor, offering an 24.1 megapixel resolution. Nikon fits the camera with its EXPEED 3 image-processing engine providing high-performance without an optical low-pass filter.


The camera promises support for lenses with a maximum aperture of f/8 and the camera has a 51-point autofocus system for quick and accurate focusing. One of the interesting features of the camera is a 1.3x DX crop that provides the photographer with increased zooming. It also has the ability to shoot continuously at up to seven frames per second. In addition to stills, the D7100 can record 1080 60i/30p resolution HD video, a nice improvement over the 1080/24p of the previous-gen D7000.

The camera also features a new Spot White Balance option and a high-performance optical viewfinder providing 100% frame coverage. The rear LCD screen is a 3.2-inch unit, offering 640×480 resolution. The camera has dual SD memory card slots and an integrated pop-up flash.

The camera ships on March 21, 2013, and is available to pre-order right now for $1199.99 for the body only, or $1599.99 with an 18-105mm zoom lens. For more details on the D7100, DPReview has a detailed hands-on preview here.
