Nikon India has unveiled its D7100 digital SLR camera in India. Successor to the D7000, the D7100 comes with a new 24.1-megapixel CMOS sensor and 51-point AF system.
Though the D7100 looks similar to the D7000, the internals have been completely overhauled. It now features a 24.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, an upgrade from the 16.2 megapixel sensor on the D7000. It also gains a 51-point autofocus system and 1.3x crop mode for both stills and video capture. The camera comes with cross-type centre focus point, compatible with lenses with a maximum aperture of f/8, enabling a faster and more precise autofocus.
The camera is capable of shooting 1080p30 videos and 1080i 60 videos. The ISO cranks up to 6400 in standard mode and up to 25600 in expanded mode. It features a 3.2 inch LCD with 1.2 million dots. Nikon has opted to drop the optical low pass filter on the D7100 which is unusual but helps keep the price low.
The D7100 also supports Nikon’s WU-1a Wi-Fi unit, which when plugged into the camera’s accessory terminal, allows images to be transmitted to a smartphone or a tablet over WiFi.
The camera weighs 788 g with battery and is capable of capturing 920 shots before the battery runs out of juice.
The camera is priced at Rs 79,450 for the body only. It can also be picked up with a 18-105mm lens kit for Rs 94,950 and a 16-85mm lens kit for Rs 112,950.
