Here is a Preview of the NEW Nikon D7100. I think this is a very very strong DX camera with some features that are not even found in the top of the line pro cameras.
Lets take a quick look at some of the important information.
New 24.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor - We see the progression still going toward more megapixels but the quality keeps getting better. The D4 is only 16 mind you so the RAW files form the D7100 will be larger.
No Anti-Aliasing Filter - Nikon says this means images that will be sharper, more vibrant and contrasty. They say paired with Nikon glass the images will "Explode" with quality. I like this, anythign to give us sharper images is well worth it.
ISO 100-6400 expandable to 25,600 - This means you have a camera that will kick ass in the studio and kick ass in low light situations. I expect the quality of the images to be really good. Let me remind you that HI ISO is in no way a replacement for using better glass.
51 Point Autofocus system - 51 points is a ton of focus points on a DX camera. This means you will be able to select any of the 51 points and use that as your point of focus. I expect this focusing system to be very fast and accurate.
6 FPS - You can shoot 6 frames per second while you hold the shutter down. You know me, im not a fan of spray and pray.
1.3X Crop Mode - This crop mode will allow you to shoot cropped images at 15.4 megapixels at 7 frames per second. In essence you are getting 2x magnification on your lenses. This means a 200mm 2.8 will act more like a 400 2.8 in the crop mode. This mode also crops for video.
2 SD Card Slots - The D7000 had two sd slots and the D7100 continues with two as well. I like the option of being bale to have an extra copy of every image I take just in case one card goes down. I prefer that over having it write photos to one and video to the other.
NEW 3.2 inch Screen - A nice upgrade is the new 3.2 inch LCD screen which has 1.2 million dots. It also looks like this screen sits more flush to the body which makes for a better all around look and fit.
Top and Bottom are magnesium alloy - It is always nice when the body is not fully plastic.
The shutter is rated to last 150K actuations - Like I always say, this does not mean that every camera will reach that, some could go earlier some could last 300k shots. I personally have not taken a camera over 40K actuations before I replaced it.
ENEL-15 Batter - This is the same batter that the D7000 used as well as the D600 and D800(E).
You will be happy to know this camera allows you to manually control your settings while its recording. This is something that not all of the cameras allow you to do. This means you can change your F stop while you are filming.
Frame Rates - 1080 60i, 1080 30p 24p 25p and 720 60p. These options are standard at this point.
Audio Input - There is an audio input for using external microphones which I highly recommend.
Stereo Microphones - There are stereo microphones for recoding audio. The audio from these will be fine but will pick up any zooming or focusing that the camera will do. I always recommend extern microphones for recording audio.
Record Time - 20 min in the highest mode, I am not going to comment on the lowest modes time because you probably should not be shooting in a lower quality mode.
The price for body only is $1199.95 and will be avalible at the end of March at AllensCamera.com
