The Nikon D7100 DSLR Completes Nikon’s Dominance of the Entry-Level Camera Market

Home Tips & Tricks   The Nikon D7100 DSLR Completes Nikon’s Dominance of the Entry-Level Camera Market   

The Nikon D7100 was launched last week and has slotted into the upper end of the entry-level category to give Nikon market leaders in every section of the category. The Nikon D7100 price is extremely competitive, being about the same price as its predecessor, the Nikon D7000. The D3200 and D5200 have trounced their rivals in the novice and intermediate sections and now the D7100 leads the way for the serious enthusiast market. Although just short of full frame Pro-level, the D7100 will be pushing its Pro siblings and, I think, beating some of them in the reviews that will be coming out shortly. Remember, the D5200 fell only a few points short of the D3x in the DxOmark review.

The headline improvements are the 24MP sensor (another brand new one according the Nikon), 51 AF points, taken from the D800 and, for movie makers, 30FPS at 1080p. It shoots 6FPS burst speed full frame, has nearly 100% through the viewfinder, is weather sealed up to D800 level and is built like a tank. It is one tough cookie, designed to complete 150,000 actuations. The ISO range goes from 100 to 25,600 and it keeps its dual memory card slots and 1/8000 top shutter speed. The D7100 also has a new I button, which has proved very useful on the D5200 – it allows you quick access to the more obvious settings on the viewing screen.

Whilst adopting some functions from other cameras, it does have a few of its own. Crop mode will extend the length of a lens on top of the usual x1.5 for DX cameras. The additional x1.3 actually doubles the length of the lens for both stills and video. Because this automatically crops the image, this means that the 51 AF points extend to the edge of the frame. In Crop Mode, you can shoot 7 frames per second, though the image size is smaller. Interestingly, because the D7100 has an internal motor, new owners are in an excellent position to take advantage of the good short or medium length quality Nikkor lenses from the past, which are currently so cheap on eBay. A new viewing screen is both larger and higher definition. The smaller screens are pretty good, so this should be excellent. Offering a spot white balance function is a nice touch as it is sometimes a pain to scroll through the menu, and artificial light is so ubiquitous. HDR photographers will be moderately pleased to learn that the D7100 offers a 5 frame HDR option.

This is not a video camera in the same way the Nikon D5200 is a video camera. The viewing screen is larger, but not articulated, which is really handy for movie making. Whilst it does improve on frame rates, offering 30 frames per second at 1080p and 60 FPS at 720p, the lack of low pass filter does leave it vulnerable to moire in video. It will record video for just under 30 minutes at a time. The stereo Mic is welcome and the out socket for headphones does enable you to check sound levels before you record. There is no doubt that it will produce excellent quality video.

It is fair to say that the Nikon D7100 is a step up from the D7000. However, those who expected a revolution might be disappointed. This camera builds on the superb quality of its predecessor, adding and improving where required. I am confident that, when reviewed by the big boys, it will be shown to be a remarkable camera. And the price of the Nikon D7100 is so good that it will easily sell as well as the D7000. But it is for serious enthusiasts or semi-pros who aren’t dazzled by trivia and don’t want to hang a show pony around their necks.
