 Nikon D7100 | Review | Price | image | PixelBing

Nikon has recently launched its new DX format DSLR camera worldwide, the new D7100. The D7100 has a 24.1 megapixel DX format CMOS sensor as well as an EXPEED3 image processor for capturing high resloution images. It uses a 51-point AF system for accurate tracking and clicking of the subject. Out of 51, 15 sensors are of cross type. In addition, the center focus point (cross-type) is fully functional with lenses with a maximum aperture of f/8. This means faster, more precise autofocusing with a variety of conditions. Also, it boasts of a faster mechanism and better performance, with a start up time of 0.13 second, and a significantly remarkable 0.052-second shutter lag.

The D7100 houses many new functions for a better shooting experience such as Spot White Balance, a white balance Preset Manual option that allows users to choose a specific subject from which white balance is measured with shooting in live view. Additionally, the D7100 features an RGBW array that enables more effective accumulation of light, as well as a large, 3.2-inch high-resolution TFT LCD monitor with wide viewing angle, and an “i” button that enables direct access to frequently used functions.

The D7100 supports the WR-1, a highly functional transceiver that enables verification and adjustment of settings, as well as control over remote shooting. The WR-1 uses radio waves and supports 15 channels for communication over a maximum range of 120 m between multiple WR-1s. Not only can one WR-1 be configured as a transmitter and a second as a receiver to control operation of one remote camera, but multiple WR-1s can be configured as receivers for remote control over multiple cameras. A number of remote shooting options are available, including simultaneous release and synchronized release, as well as interval timer shooting and division of multiple cameras into groups for separate control over each group. Remote control is also possible using the
