Nikon announces the D7100 DX SLR
Nikon has announced that they will release a successor to the popular D7000 SX SLR. The D7100 uses a new 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor, and is supplied without an optical low pass filter (OLPF). The camera uses Nikon’s proven EXPEED 3 image processing engine, and features a native SO range of 100 to 6400. It has a new 51-point AF system and a new Multi-CAM 3500DX AF module. For metering, it uses Nikon’s 3D Color Matrix Metering II 2,016-pixel RGB sensor and Scene Recognition System. Uniquely and of interest for macro shooters, the camera offers a 1.3 x crop mode which gives an extra telephoto boost (2X) with 15.4 megapixel resolution. In addition, in 1.3 x mode, the 51-point AF array covers more of the frame.
