Product Details

Nikon D7100 24.1 Megapixel Digital SLR Camera With 18-105mm VR Lens Kit, Model D7100KIT

The Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera is the new flagship model of Nikon's DX-format DSLR lineup. Improving upon its wildly successful predecessor, the D7000, Nikon packed the new model with an array of advanced features that will please both beginner DSLR users and professional photographers alike.

At the heart of the Nikon D7100 DSLR is an all-new, 24.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, designed without the optical low pass filter typical to most DSLR cameras. The resultant images from the D7100 are rendered with a sharpness and detail unmatched by any other DSLR in its class. With native sensitivity up to ISO 6400, and expandable to ISO 25600, the D7100 practically sees in the dark, letting you shoot without a flash to capture natural-looking memories in the lowest light.

For the ultimate in versatility, this Nikon D7100 DSLR kit includes the NIKKOR 18-105 VR zoom lens. Its wide focal range lets you capture everything from wide-angle scenic vistas to tight portraits of your loved ones. Vibration Reduction (VR) is great in low-light situations, helping keep the lens steady when you can't, while the Silent Wave Motor (SWM) helps the lens focus quickly and quietly.

To ensure that the D7100 was fast enough for the most demanding situations, Nikon outfitted it with the EXPEED 3 processor, the same unit found in Nikon's professional cameras. This processer lets the Nikon D7100 shoot 6 frames per second continuously for up to 100 images, helping you get multiple shots of even the fastest action. Easily track moving subjects with the pro-level autofocus system, which utilizes 51 autofocus points to ensure fast, accurate focus.

If you're more interested in moving images, the Nikon D7100 has a full complement of movie functions, including full 1080p HD video capture at multiple frame rates. Combine a 24 fps frame rate with the narrow depth-of-field of DSLR video to give your movies a truly cinematic feel. Or shoot 720p video at 60 fps, for professional slow-motion capture.

All of these features come wrapped in a durable yet lightweight body, with the comfortable handling typical of all Nikon DSLR cameras. Magnesium-alloy construction and an array of environmental seals protect the Nikon D7100 against dings, dust and moisture. Dual SD-Card slots let you shoot for longer without changing your memory card, or allow you to record the same photo to each card, creating an instant backup of all your memories. Review your photos on the vibrant 3.2" LCD screen, or use the optional WU-1a wireless transmitter to send directly to your smartphone or tablet.


  • 18-105mm VR Lens Kit
    Kit includes the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens for fast, accurate autofocus, vivid color, striking contrast and crisp detail; along with VR image stabilization to ensure the sharpest hand-held pictures and movies
  • Pure, sharp images
    The D7100 marks an exciting advancement in image quality for high-resolution DX-format cameras. Nikon specially designed its 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor without using an optical low pass filter (OLPF), resulting in the purest, sharpest images using D7100's DX-format CMOS sensor. Combine that with fantastic ISO performance at both ends of the spectrum—down to ISO 100 and up to ISO 6400—the processing speed and intelligence of EXPEED 3 and the extra lens reach of a 1.5x crop factor, and the D7100 is the ultimate tool for those seeking a lightweight DX-format HD-SLR
  • High-speed shooting with flawless metering and autofocus
    When the action speeds up, fire a blazing fast 6 frames per second continuously for up to 100 shots. Building on the acclaimed autofocus system from the D300s, the D7100 uses 51 focus points, including 15 cross-type sensors for detecting both vertical and horizontal contrast variations, to achieve fast, precise focus. The central cross-type sensor works all the way down to f/8, a huge advantage when using compatible teleconverters. At the same time, a highly accurate 2016-pixel RGB sensor evaluates every scene, taking into account brightness, contrast, subject distance and color, for spot-on auto operations like Face-Priority and full-time autofocus during video capture
  • Compatible with the WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter
    The D7100 makes it easy to share your great photos immediately, wherever you are. Connect the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter and instantly transfer shots to a compatible smartphone or tablet, then upload them to the web, send by email or text—share them however you like. With Nikon's free Wireless Mobile Utility installed on your smartphone or tablet (available for both Android and iOS), you can also remotely control the D7100. Use your phone or tablet as a Live View monitor to take shots without having the camera in your hands, a huge advantage for everything from self portraits to digiscoping with a Nikon fieldscope
  • Dazzling 1080p videos, slow-motion and time-lapse sequences
    With full-time autofocus and manual exposure control during video recording, a built-in stereo mic and an external stereo mic jack, headphone and HDMI jacks, the D7100 achieves exceptional cinematic reproduction and quality. Record in several high-definition formats: 1080p at 60i/50i/30/25/24 fps or 720p at up to 60p for ultra-smooth slow-motion sequences. Dual SD card slots give you additional recording time, and an all new 60i function enables smooth playback on HDTVs or external monitors. And, of course, every shot looks great through a NIKKOR lens. Create beautiful background blur with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G, or use the AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm for an ultra-wide-angle view that's perfect for establishing shots and working in tight interiors
  • Creativity on demand
    The D7100 will inspire your creativity to new heights. Built-in HDR (High Dynamic Range) combines shots taken simultaneously at different exposures into one beautifully rich, high-contrast image. Picture Control gives you instant access to the color characteristics of your images, and spot White Balance control for Live View shooting makes setting the white balance as easy as pointing to the area in the frame that should be white. You can even apply artistic Image Effects to both stills and videos in real-time
  • High-end design
    The D7100 has the comfortable handling and durability of a high-end Nikon camera. A durable magnesium alloy body with moisture and dust resistance protects the camera's internal parts from the elements. A new 3.2-inch ultra-high-resolution 1,229K-dot LCD monitor provides crisp image playback, menu adjustments and Live View shooting, and a new viewfinder with a low-power consumption electro-luminescent (EL) data display provides approx. 100% frame coverage

This camera is almost perfect. At the very end of this review I will explain why this camera is not perfect. VIEWFINDER There is a nice sized viewfinder on the back of the camera. It is NOT a touch screen. It does NOT swivel out. PICTURE QUALITY Stunning. I took some images on the lowest camera setting and the pics still looked good, it was as if I could put my hand in the photograph and pull out the people. The images had a 3D look. LENS I purchased this camera with the 18-140mm and 55-300mm lens. The 18-140 lens will do about 95% of what most users will need. The lower end is great for wide angle shots and the upper end is awesome for portrait work. It's nice to have the 55-300mm lens but on a daily basis, 18-140 is sufficient. SENSOR This is a DX sensor (23.5mm x 15.6mm) which lets in a lot of light. Light is what a photo is made from. The next best sensor, for all intense purposes, is a full frame sensor. This DX is more than adequate for most individuals. If you are not sure of which sensor size you need then the DX is perfect. MEDIA This camera has two SD slots and can take SD, SDHC, and SCXC cards. Mine came with a 32gb SD card. WIRELESS My camera came with the WU-1a wireless adapter. The adapter works ok, I just wish it was built in instead of having it dangling on the side of the camera. BATTERY Please buy and extra battery. I am only getting about 400 images off a charge. FLASH The built in flash offers red eye reduction as well as other features. USER MANUAL - SHOULD YOU READ IT? Don't do it. This manual will have you jumping all over the place. Instead I recommend the book [Mastering the Nikon D7100, ISBN 978-1937538323 by Darrell Young.] Although the included Nikon manual is less than desirable, the camera is still excellent. NEGATIVE - WHY THIS CAMER IS NOT PERFECT The only negative of this camera is that it does not include an option to place a date and time stamp (date imprint) directly onto a jpeg file - for those of us who want that option it is major. You can imprint the date and time if using a pic Bridge printer which equals useless. The work around is to buy a software program, either [Easy Batch Photo] or [Batch Photo]. Both of those programs work on the Mac (not sure about the PC). If buying software is not an option AND you want the date imprinted on your jpeg files then I recommend purchasing the Nikon D5200 instead. The later will give the same photo quality as the D7100. FYI: the images will have the date listed on the EXIF data but when you print the images you will need to hand write the date or use one of the software programs I mentioned above to have the date printed. Why is this feature so important to me? I am heavy into genealogy and I want to document the date the photo is taken. Although everything NOW is in the present tense, 50 years from now the images will be in the past tense. I have a family photo taken in 1906 and one taken in 1917. I know the year because it was written on the image. I would like to do the same for my descendants. Nikon, please offer an update to include this feature. If it is an option then those who do not want it can just turn it off. Final thoughts, this is a great camera and I definitely recommend it.

Let me start with the weak points because this is what you need to be aware of. I bought this camera two months ago as an upgrade from the D60 that I had for 4 years which has served me very well especially for low light photography. I never had to worry about setting the ISO and pictures were great even with the high1 setting that the camera sometimes chose. I expected even better pictures with my new D7100, however for me pictures taken at ISOs higher than 2500 are unacceptable, even at 2000 are not that great. A major problem that I noticed was the existence of horizontal lines all across the screen with the use of my telephoto lens (55-200). The lines are visible regardless of the lighting and the higher the zoom, the more visible they are. If I am not mistaken, they start showing above 100. At 200, the picture is unacceptable (see attached images). I asked around to verify that it is not a problem specific to my camera and it seems like a common issue. I contacted Nikon support, but to my surprise they did not seem to know about it. A second major issue for me is the Raw file size. You can select between 12 bit and 14 bit. I select 12 and the file size is 22 MB... This is way too large. My old Windows Vista computer couldn't handle the files, I had to upgrade it, not to mention the disk space. Minor issues: - The main mode dial now has a lock button that you have to push to switch from mode to mode. I can't tell you how annoying that is and you can never really get over it especially that i use it often and my previous camera didn't have it. - another issue is the position of the video record button. Again very poorly positioned. - I was very happy that my new camera has the live view feature that I thought would be great for taking pictures at festivals where the people in front of me are tall and I have to raise the camera up. Well, live view takes very long to focus and very long to take the picture after the shutter button is pressed. - When using bracketing, if by mistake you don't use all photos selected in the set, the next shot could come under or over exposed. Ex: if you choose a 5 photo set, make sure you take all 5. - it tends to under expose sometimes. What I love about this camera: - It has a sharp image. I did not have any problems due to the lack of the low pass filter. - Very high resolution screen. - Ability to take HDR photos in camera. Although the feature is buried in the menus, you can assign it to the preview or Fn buttons. However one annoying thing is that if you are in raw mode, you have to switch to JPG first and then select your HDR configuration. - I appreciate the high speed that did not exist in my previous D60. - You can take the picture at 1.3x, however I don't recommend it. If I am not mistaken, it seems the frame dimensions are not the same in DX like in 1.3DX. - it has built in interval timer in case you are interested in time lapse photography. I have yet to try it. - video quality is great (but not the sound#. - most of the time I have my focus point in the middle, but last time I was taking pictures at a fashion show and the 51 focus points came in handy. I always thought 3 was more than enough. Having said this, I find using the different focus modes is a too complicated. - Exposure bracketing is a great feature to have if you love HDR. I found the sequence it takes the pictures odd at first because it takes the normal picture at which the camera is set and then takes the others, but then I realized it is better that way because you can find the base picture more easily if you need to use it on its own. - I read somewhere that the position of the aperture and the shutter speeds are reversed in this camera #one in the front and the other in the back), but luckily that can be swapped from the menu. - The camera has a few other capabilities that are of no interest to me. Notes: Make sure you buy a fast card, otherwise With the file size you will be disappointed. I got two 32Gb cards and configured them for overflow, but I never filled one in on one day. I take a lot of pictures when I go on vacation. Overall, it could have been a great camera, but it is not. I would not recommend it just for the vertical lines problem and the poor performance in low light. Another note on the attachments. The attached images are not the worst problems I have had. I have other pictures that look worse, but I can't post them because they have people. I haven't tried printing them out to see how they would look, but being able to see those lines on the iPad doesn't make me happy.

Awesome Camera, I Own Two.


from Corpus Christi, TX, USA

I bought my first D7100 when they came out. I bought a second one about a year later to not have to change lens on the fly. My DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is on one and my DX NIKKOR 35mm F1.8G is on the other most of the time. For Wide you can't beat DX NIKKOR 10-24mm F3.5-4.5G ED. I also have the great NIKKOR 50mm F1.4G. From shooting Wildlife to People, to Sunrises to Night shoots I am ready for anything. I shoot in Auto a lot and I always get the shot. I use the Scene mood a some too. I am a US Marine and had a TBI so keeps it easy. I love the DX reach. I am very happy with the photos I take daily, so are my FB fans. Semper Fi


SO Sad :(


from Undisclosed

An excellent performer built to last


from NH

I've been shooting with this camera for more than a year now, and it has never failed me once. I've shot with this camera in the rain and snow, in hot weather and in extreme cold, and nothing seems to phase it. It's been up and down mountains, on road trips, and on a tripod in several rivers. I've had many great adventures with this camera slung over my shoulder. A DSLR isn't something you should have to treat super-carefully, like a little baby. When you sling your camera over your shoulder, it's going to be smacked against door frames, trees, and whatever else you try to squeeze between. A DSLR should be built tough, so that it can withstand drops, smacks, and crashes. I have found that this Nikon D7100 can hold up to any abuse caused by a serious photographer. The 24.1 megapixel sensor does an amazing job of capturing the tiniest of details (with a good lens, of course). I love the 51-point autofocus, because I can move the little point where ever I want when my camera is on my tripod. Autofocus is fast and accurate, and I like how it can focus with both AF and AF-S lenses. My two favorite features of this camera are the backlit LCD display on the top plate, and the weather sealing. The backlight comes in handy when shooting at night or in dark locations. Even when your eyes are accustomed to the night, the backlight never hurts your eyes when you turn it on. Without weather sealing, I wouldn't have been able to make so many of the images I have made. I definitely recommend this camera. It's tough, seriously reliable, comfortable to hold, and an all-around solid performer.

A great enthusiast-targeted camera body


from Undisclosed

I've been shooting with this camera body and a Nikon 80-200mm 2.8 lens for around a year now and am very pleased with its performance. I was a bit hesitant to get this body at first because Nikon decided to omit the optical low-pass filter and I had read that there was a potential for moiré-induced artifacts when shooting stills of objects with fine patterned detail. Well I have not run into that problem yet. The photos I've taken with this camera have been great. In my opinion this is the next camera body you want to upgrade to if your not quite ready to spend the money on a pro body.

Wonderful Piece of Art


from League City, TX, USA

I am fairly new to the photography industry and have just got this camera with a 18-55mm, 55-300mm, and 40mm lenses. So far, this is the best camera I have ever used. I don't understand all the specs about it but I'm learning and am enjoying it and am quiet pleased. Its wonderful entering the photography world and I'm glad I joined with this camera

First Digital SLR


from Midwest

Learned the basics of light/composition on an F series back in college. Since, had primarily used point and shoot 35mm and then point and shoot digital, along with phone cameras. Was not at all happy with the images compared to those I produced in the dark room. I also wanted to take quality images of my work for my portfolio/website/marketing materials, so after a lot of reading and research, settled on the D7100 crop sensor to start. Chose a 70-300 FX and a 16-85 DX both VR lenses to compliment. I cannot believe the quality of images this camera has produced. I do plan to transition to a career in photography and this is the perfect tool to hone my skills. I am also considering the D810 full to further extend my arsenal of Nikon quality. The images have not been processed at all. Would enthusiastically recommend this camera.


This Camera is Pretty Great


from Seattle, WA

This camera is fantastic. If you know what you're doing, then it will be a perfect tool for your photography. This is my first DSLR from a NX300, and the difference is enormous. Performance wise, this camera seriously delivers, and the low-light image quality is probably the best Iv'e seen in an APS-C sensor DSLR. Actually though: If you know what you're doing or has a general sense on shooting outside of auto, then this camera will be perfect for you.

Very impressed


from Kansas City, MO, USA

I just got one of these to replace my D7000. Well I am blown away at the increase in picture quality. The 24 megapixels and removal of a low pass filter really make for some fantastic images out of this camera. The focus system is also much improved. I am an HDR photographer and this camera has far superior HDR features with expanded bracketing and an in-camera two shot HDR function. I had a similar function in my old D5100 however this sensor has better dynamic range and you can shoot a series easily whereas the D5100 was harder to access and only allowed one shot. Anyway... I am very excited about this camera, picture quality is superb, ISO is improved by a couple stops allowing very clean shots up to 3200 ISO. With noise reduction software (DXO) 6400 ISO shots would be okay. Some of the new 1.8 and 1.4 aperture glass on the market is making this camera a very strong contender. The gap is getting very narrow between full frame and crop camera's. It's awesome ... the down side probably is the small buffer... if your a spray and pray shooter RAW is going to bring this camera to its knee's in one second of continuous burst shooting. Good job on this camera Nikon.... I am picky about my camera's and this body is truly capable of professional results.
