Summary: The Nikon D7100 offers some amazing specifications, so where does that leave the Nikon D300s? And is the D7100 actually the D400 that many sports and wildlife photographers have been asking for? Find out with our Nikon D7100 vs D300s comparison.
Summary: Recently we compared the Canon and Nikon systems to see what each had to offer. In this head-to-head we look beyond the big two; our Nikon D7100 vs Olympus E-P5 comparison aims to find out which is the best enthusiast-level camera.
Conclusion: Classed as a prosumer DSLR camera, the Nikon D7100 is named "one of the most complete enthusiast DSLRs." It is an upgrade to the highly reviewed and still available D7000 model, boasting an improved autofocus system with 51 points of focus.
Pros: No anti-aliasing filter, 51-point autofocus system, Long battery life
Cons: Average low-light performance, Average continuous shooting speed
Excerpt: An attractive camera, aimed at the enthusiast, the Nikon D7100 follows on from the well-regarded D7000 which, I noted in my DPS review at the time, was described as a ‘professional-standard’ camera, not a professional one!
Summary: The D7100 is a well-built enthusiast DSLR that offers impressive image quality and easy access to shooting parameters along with a high degree of customization options. Video output is a bit disappointing and a very small image buffer limits sports shooters to JPEG-only mode.
Pros: Outstanding low ISO performance in both JPEG and Raw files, Very good default JPEG settings, Excellent build quality and very good ergonomics and handling, Effective auto white balance in a variety of lighting conditions, Comprehensive camera customization options, Auto ISO selection can be linke...
Cons: Small image buffer severely limits burst capacity in Raw-enabled modes, Slow AF in live view and video modes (compared to mirrorless APS-C cameras), No real-time aperture adjustment preview in live view, Noticeably soft video output, In video mode, the 1.3x crop setting produces upsampled output,...
Excerpt: The D7100 is the current flagship of Nikon’s DX camera family, combining excellent image quality and advanced features. Its APS-C sensor is designed without an optical low-pass filter, which allows us to take full advantage of its 24-million-pixel resolution with no loss of sharpness.
Conclusion: The D7100 has excellent AF and state-of-the-art memory write speed to perform as a sports/action DSLR , but its memory buffer is on the shallow side due to the fact that it is 24MP so that one needs to use lossy compressed RAW to reduce image file sizes and capture more selectively at the right...
Summary: The title function is, of course the D7100's 24MP indicator, which locations it plus the biggest quality APS-C cameras available on the industry. Indeed, if you were to implement that same pixel solidity to a complete structure indicator, you would get approximately a 58MP processor.
