It was only about three weeks ago that we saw Nikon unveiling six new digital cameras and now it’s time to welcome a new shooter from the company. However, this one is less for occasional photographers and more for people who snap photos for a living.
More precisely, we’re dealing with a brand new DSLR (digital single-lens reflex camera), worth $1,200 and up. The D7100 is the name and “superior clarity and nimble precision” the game.
Packed with a 24.1-megapixel CMOS sensor, Nikon’s 51-point AF system and wireless connectivity, the D7100 breathes power from a mile. And yet it’s not overly bulky or ugly, weighing in at 675 grams and rocking a stylish, classic and classy look.
The spec sheet is impressive from one end to another and includes goodies like ISO sensitivity ranging from 100 to 25,600, built-in HDR, 2016-pixel RGB sensor and EXPEED 3 processor. The TFT LCD screen measures a comfortable 3.2 inches and you get dual SD card slots for storage.
While the starting price of this beast is $1,200, I’m sure that most of you won’t skimp on the 400 bucks that gets you the extra 18-105 mm VR lens kit. The cam is just not the same without that, is it?
