Rumors about articulating touch screen are FALSE.Nikon D7200Nikon D7200Nikon D7200 My quick thoughts on the Nikon D7200I was a fan of the D7100, it provides excellent manual controls and very good quality at a solid price. The value of the camera was high. I, like many photographers, were frustrated with the tiny buffer that really kept this camera from shining, it certainly made sports and wildlife photographers look for alternatives. It looks like they have addressed that issue and I expect this camera to perform well and sell well.Nikon D7100 and D7200 - Can you tell the difference?[vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"]D7200 Back[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"]D7100 Back[/vc_column][/vc_row]

This is basically the same camera as the D5300 minus the GPS and adding in a touch screen.  Nikon has done well with some of the touchscreen features allowing you to setup and control certain aspects of the camera by touching the screen even when your eye is up to the viewfinder.  The best option may be picking your focus point by moving your finger across the screen.

D5500 or D5300?

You can save $200 and pickup the D5300 which will offer identical image quality, only real sacrifice is the touchscreen. With that savings you can buy the Nikon 35mm f/1.8 - a fantastic prime lens that will give you wonderful aperture control and excellent low light images. Why do you want a prime lens? I have 6 reasons you want a prime lens.Buy the D5300 from B&H Photo | Adorama | Amazon

D5500 or D7100 (D7200)

In just hours we should know much more about the D7200. It is rumored to have an articulating screen and will offer, like the D7100 a much more professional camera in both feel and operation. If you dream of professionally shooting the D7XX series gives you much more room to grow as a photographer you just need to pay more and carry around a bigger camera.  If you are just a parent or someone that wants to take nice photos and have your camera with you most of the time, the D5300/D5500 would be my pick.Buy the D7100 from B&H Photo | Adorama | Amazon  

Canon 70D Review vs Nikon D7100 Review

  Bottom Line: Both the Canon 70D and the Nikon D7100 are excellent and produce really impressive video and stills in low light, and at high ISOs. Focus through the viewfinder is fast on both cameras and it really comes down to the features you are looking for should help you determine which is best for you.

Strengths of the Nikon D7100:

  1. Well built with magnesium body, loads of buttons, customization of several buttons and dual card slots. The Canon 70D body is aluminum and polycarbonate. Both are weather sealed. The D7100 offers dedicated bracketing buttons too.
  2. Excellent low light high ISO capabilities - I was stunned by the low light performance of the D7100 - high ISO files are clean and the dynamic range is excellent and remains excellent even in lower light. I am listing this as a strength for the Nikon but in most cases the Canon is on par with the quality though when I do see a winner it is the Nikon. If we want to talk about live view focusing in low light the Canon does an excellent job. The Nikon still struggles with this. In viewfinder focusing the two seem equal to me. Nikon does offer the crop mode which fills the frame with focus points, certainly useful for faster action.
  3. Images and video are SHARP! Nikon ditched their anti-aliasing filter and the result is sharper video and images AND they still manage to control moire. Even when I try to get moire on the Nikon I can’t - on the Canon I can get it without even trying. It is often avoidable but you are more likely to see it in Canon video.
  4. 100% viewfinder- When you look through the viewfinder you get exactly what you see and it is nice and bright. Canon’s at 98% is very slightly dimmer and not exactly what you see - Having that large bright viewfinder is very useful in lower light situations, really helps you see what you are photographing and checking focus.
  5. Retouch menu and extra scenes/effects. The D7100 offers a slew of scenes, some of those scene modes that work in video and a robust retouch menu. Now professionals are not likely to be excited by these scenes and the retouch menu but the options are there and they can be fun even if some scene/effects are gimmicky (selective color I am looking at you) - I will also throw in here the dedicated bracketing button that Nikon adds in, nice for serious HDR work.
  6. Wireless is a $60 add on and is limited to phone/tablet devices but you can send full resolution files through the air. Canon’s wifi is built in with greater features- including connecting to your computer but you are limited to 1920 x 1080 sized JPEGS that you can send across to your phone or tablet.
  7. Uncompressed HDMI Out - this is a professional level feature that allows you to connect an external monitor or HD for recording video straight to a drive.

Strengths of the Canon 70D:

  1. The headline feature of the 70D is that lovely live view and video focus - fast, smooth and almost always on target. In the past with a few exceptions live view focusing on DSLRs has been slow, painfully slow and plagued by a hunting for focus, especially in lower light. The updated sensor technology of the 70D fixes these issues. I find myself using live view whenever it is convenient. The 70D locks onto focus smoothly with any lens and gives you have camcorder like focus while still maintaining the beautiful shallow depth of field and low light capabilities that make DSLR video great. Add an STM lens and focus is silent, perfect for the parent who wants excellent video of their child.
  2. That live view focus is great and having it on an articulated screen is wonderful.  lift it up, lower it, face it toward you for talking head videos - it just works very well.
  3. So i just went on and on about the wonderful live view focusing, couple that with the articulated screen and the fact that the articulated screen is an excellent touchscreen and the 70D is FUN to use - nothing feels like a chore. Touch to focus is useful and if you are doing video work, being able to touch softly to make changes is appreciated and flip the screen around if you are recording yourself for talking head videos like the ones on my Youtube Channel and you can still make changes to settings on the camera - though you cannot start and stop video from the touchscreen.
  4. Ergonomics and one handed operation - If you don’t want to use the touchscreen the manual controls on the 70D camera are sweet and with just a finger you push button, rotate a wheel and your settings is changed. Nikon is more two handed in those actions with many buttons left of the screen that needs a push.  Not a big difference and some people  prefer the feel of the Nikon.
  5. Burst mode and buffer, the burst mode on this camera at 7fps is serious and the buffer is large enough that you can keep shooting at that high speed long enough to capture your moment. D7100 shoots at 6fps and the buffer fills up in just a second. You can enable crop mode on D7100 which gives you better results but still not great especially if you are using those dual card slots - if faster action is your subject matter the 70D offers the burst mode that you need.
  6. Wifi built in with greater options for sharing vs D7100 - Built in Wifi gives you some nifty options for downloading images on the go or direct to your computer(buggy software) or uploading to web services - I am frustrated that you are limited to only transferring 1920 x 1080 sized files and you can't start and stop video.

Longer Bottom Line: Both of these cameras have lots to offer and it really depends on your needs that should determine which is a better camera for you. Parents that want an excellent device to photo and video their children - the 70D really feels like the perfect blend of power and usability, especially paired with the 18-135 STM that will give you silent autofocus. Indie film makers I would think the Nikon with gorgeous low light video and uncompressed HDMI would be what you want. Wedding/event videographers - It can go either way, most professionals I know of and talk to don’t use and are not interested in auto focus during video but I know that there is a group out there very interested in this camera and there are the semi-pros that are interested in easy autofocus while filming and the 70D provides that.  That is just a few use cases. . . Want my opinion on which is best for you?  Leave a comment below and make sure you tell me what you will be photographing or taking video of.  And anything else you think would be helpful for me to know.

Canon 70D vs D7100 - Buffer Speed/Write Speed with Common SD Cards

A simple and not completely scientific test - I took each SD card I had lying around - formatted it, stuck it in the camera being tested and held the shutter down for 10 seconds. Counted the number of shots in that ten seconds and wrote it all down on the spreadsheet below. The Canon 70D does get a win in the performance column, interestingly with the fast cards the D7100 comes back on the RAW side but overall the 70D consistently pumps out more shots per ten second period than the D7100. I will add some images of the wave forms so you can get a sense for how it looks over the ten second period.Canon 70D Burst Rate/FPS


D7100 Sample Images

I spent a day wandering around Brattleboro, Vermont shooting with the D7100. My initial thoughts, Nice Camera! My thoughts after seeing the higher ISO images I shot, especially the bolts in the hardware store, Wow! Clearly the king of DX sensors at this time. I will have a more complete review as well as a video tour of its features soon. Video Tour is UpThese images are untouched, they may report that they were taken with a D5200 as I had to hack the Exif data to get LR to open

Nikon D7100 vs D7000 vs D5200

NIKON D7100 Image Key Differences between all three cameras - If a camera is not listed with a feature bullet it does not offer that feature.

  • 24MP with a new sensor(not the same as the 24MP sensor in the D3200 or the D5200) and the AntiAliasing filter has been removed potentially increasing the image quality in some situations.
  • D7100 offers a 1.3x crop mode. You resolution is now limited to 15MP but provides additional benefits (see next two bullets)
  • 51 AF points and when you shoot in the 1.3x crop mode nearly 100% of frame is covered by AF. D7000 and D5200 offer 39 AF points.
  • 6 frames per second, 7 when you shoot in the 1.3x crop mode. D7000 offers 6FPS and D5200 offers 5fps.
  • Improved weather sealing - moisture and dust seals.  D7000 was a little less weather sealed.
  • D7100 and D5200 share video features 1080i at 60fps with a host of additional resolutions/FPS, D7000 was limited to 1080p at 24fps(which isn't a terrible limit)
  • D7100 and D5200 offer onboard stereo mic. D7100 also has a headphone jack.  D7000 offers mono mic and mic jack.
  • D7100 offers spot WB
  • D7100 and D5200 offer in camera HDR and Multi exposure.
  • D7100 and D5200 are compatible with the little WU-1A wi-fi adapter- paired with the Nikon app on a smartphone you can trigger the shutter and download photos.

 Buy the D7100 from Amazon | B&H ( I suspect that this camera will see very well early on and it may be a bit harder to get one at release, the D7000 was well loved) D7100 Sample Images | SD Cards tested in D7100 Should you upgrade?The D7100 is now Nikon's flagship DX model and the image quality out of this camera reflect this level of performance.  I mean simply that this is one of the highest quality crop sensors in one of the best bodies you can buy at this price level and even higher.  If you have a Nikon D5100 or lower model this would be a worthy upgrade.  If you have a D7000, still a very nice camera, it becomes less clear if you should upgrade.  The sensor is better, you have some nice additional features and more robust options in video mode BUT you are likely to see a greater, more long-term improvement investing in glass. A possible exception, if you are getting paid to shoot, especially in lower light environments or situations where you need that full AF coverage (sports and wildlife photographers I am talking to you) and you have somewhat decent lenses already - you should consider upgrading. If you any questions about the D7100, D5200 or other cameras or lenses leave a comment or send me a message on my Facebook page.   Thanks for reading.   

The Nikon D7100 Specs

The Nikon D7100 has been announced and will be available at the end of March. Pre-order now at Amazon | B&H Nikon D7100 First Impressions:The Nikon D7000 was a well loved and well priced camera.  The Nikon D7100 looks to continue that trend - starting at a body only price of $1200 you get everything loved about the D7000 - handling, responsiveness, feature set and they have tacked on 51 AF points and a focusing brain borrowed from it's much bigger brother, the D4 as well as a host of other upgrades that make this a worth successor. The 24MP sensor is similar to what is used in the D5200 and that camera is capable of some stellar image/video quality from a crop sensor. However, the in the D7100 they have removed the Anti Aliasing(AA) filter which will increase the resolution further albeit at the expense of a bit more moire(rippled appearance on fine textures in stills and video) .  With 6 FPS, 7 FPS at the 1.3x crop mode a large target audience for this camera is your sports and wildlife photographers, in addition when shooting in the crop mode almost the entire field is covered by a focus point.  Movie options are robust and similar to the excellent options on the D5200 offering 1080i at 60fps.   And a new OLED screen in the viewfinder, that's right, not the LCD but in the 100% glass pentaprism viewfinder we have additional information over-layed via an OLED screen.    Overall this looks to be an excellent camera and a noticeable upgrade from the D7000 or one of the entry level Nikon cameras.   If you have any questions about this camera or other Nikon DSLRS feel free to use the email link on the right or send me a message on Facebook.  I answer your questions.The Nikon D7100 Available to Preorder: Buy at Amazon | B&H (available at the end of March)Nikon D7100 specs:

Superior subject acquisition performance and sharp renderingAdvanced basic performance from features such as an AF system with 51 focus points, all in a compact, lightweight body

Tokyo - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the advanced, high-performance DX-format D7100 digital SLR camera.The D7100 is a compact, lightweight camera (W x H x D: approx. 135.5 x 106.5 x 76 mm; weight: approx. 675 g*1) that offers superior portability. It is loaded with features that enable excellent subject acquisition and rendering performance capable of reproducing the finest details.The high density of 51-point AF system accurately acquires the intended subject for superior subject acquisition and tracking performance. Cross-type sensors have been adopted for the 15 most frequently used focus points at the center of the frame. In addition, the center focus point (cross-type) is fully functional with lenses with a maximum aperture of f/8. This means faster, more precise autofocusing with a variety of conditions. The D7100 is also equipped with a new crop image area, 1.3x DX crop, which increases the angle of view by approximately 1.3x that of the standard DX-format angle of view. This effectively increases lens focal length to an equivalent angle of view of approximately 2x*2, making distant subjects larger. In addition, the 51 focus points cover the entire image area when 1.3x DX crop is enabled for quick and certain acquisition of subjects moving randomly through the frame with high-speed continuous shooting at approximately 7 fps*3.The D7100 is also equipped with a DX-format CMOS sensor, an effective pixel count of 24.1-million pixels, the high-performance EXPEED 3 image-processing engine, and does not have an optical low-pass filter. These features enable excellent rendering with high resolution. The incredible potential of the high pixel count, high-definition D7100 can be maximized by the use of NIKKOR lenses, which offer superior rendering performance made possible with Nikon's own optical technologies.The D7100 also offers a number of new functions that improve operation and support more natural and efficient shooting, including Spot White Balance, a white balance Preset Manual option that allows users to choose a specific subject from which white balance is measured with shooting in live view. Additionally, the D7100 features an RGBW array that enables more effective accumulation of light, as well as a large, 3.2-inch high-resolution TFT LCD monitor with wide viewing angle, and an  button that enables direct access to frequently used functions.

  • *1Camera body only
  • *2Equivalent in 35-mm [135] format.
  • *3When 1.3x DX crop is enabled; up to 6 fps when standard DX format is enabled. Both maximum frame rates possible only when image quality is set to JPEG/12-bit NEF (RAW). Measured according to CIPA guidelines.

D7100 primary features

  1. Support for lenses with a maximum aperture of f/8 and an AF system comprised of the high-density 51 focus points offering faster AF initiationThe 51 focus-point AF system built into the D7100 utilizes the new Advanced Multi-CAM 3500DX autofocus sensor module with 51 focus points covering a broad range of the frame for more certain acquisition of the intended subject. Cross-type sensors have been adopted for more certain acquisition and tracking of rapidly moving subjects. In addition, the camera is able to focus automatically with extreme accuracy, even in lighting measuring just −2 EV (ISO 100, 20°C), roughly equivalent to moonlight. What's more, the center focus point (cross-type) supports autofocusing with lenses with a maximum aperture of f/8. This allows users to enjoy ultra high-speed AF shooting with a compact and lightweight system when a telephoto NIKKOR lens with a maximum aperture of f/4 and a teleconverter (2x) are used.
  2. 51 focus points covering the entire frame bring distant subjects closer. 1.3x DX crop for high-speed continuous shooting at approximately 7 fps*1.The DX format effectively increases the shooting angle of view to an equivalent of approximately 1.5x the actual focal length of the lens*2. The new 1.3x DX crop image area increases this effect by an additional 1.3x for a total effective increase in angle of view to approximately 2x lens focal length*2, making distant subjects appear closer. What's more, when 1.3x DX crop is enabled, the AF system's 51 focus points cover the entire frame, and high-speed continuous shooting at approximately 7 fps*1 is possible for quick and certain capture of the intended subject.
    • *1When 1.3x DX crop is enabled; up to 6 fps when standard DX format is enabled. Both maximum frame rates possible only when image quality is set to JPEG/12-bit NEF (RAW). Measured according to CIPA guidelines.
    • *2Equivalent in 35-mm [135] format.
  3. A new Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor, an effective pixel count of 24.1-million pixels, no optical low-pass filter, and the EXPEED 3 image-processing engine optimized for high-performance digital-SLR camerasThe D7100 is equipped with a new Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor, an effective pixel count of 24.1-million pixels and no optical low-pass filter. It supports a broad range of standard ISO sensitivities, from ISO 100 to ISO 6400, as well as further expansion to an equivalent of ISO 25600 (Hi 2) for capture of sharp, clear images for which noise is effectively suppressed throughout the entire range of sensitivities. In addition, when used with NIKKOR lenses loaded with Nikon's advanced optical technologies, the D7100's high pixel count achieves sharp, well-defined rendering with a sense of depth. The EXPEED 3 high-performance image-processing engine maximizes the potential of the high pixel count for faithful reproduction of scenes.
  4. A compact and lightweight Nikon DX-format camera that is strong despite its light weight, and extremely portableDespite its advanced basic performance and being loaded with a number of new functions, the D7100 is a compact, lightweight camera measuring approximately 135.5 mm wide, 106.5 mm high and 76 mm deep, and weighing just 675 g*. As an entire system, the Nikon DX format, which includes DX-format lenses, offers excellent portability. The magnesium alloy adopted for the top and rear covers of the D7100 ensures great strength, and sealing of individual components ensures a high level of water and dust resistance. These aspects make the D7100 the perfect camera for a broad range of uses, from casual capture of everyday scenes to full-scale photography.
    • *Camera body only.
  5. Increased usability and improved operation
    • A new  button enables quick access to frequently used camera functionsA new  button, positioned to the bottom left of the camera's monitor, enables simple access to frequently used functions with viewfinder and live view photography, movie recording, and playback. Pressing the button displays the options screen for the desired setting, allowing immediate access to setting options for normal shooting, live view photography, and the retouch menu in playback mode.
    • A new Spot White Balance option for measuring white balance using a specified portion of the frameWith live view photography, preset manual white balance data can be easily acquired based on a portion of the scene selected by the user. Spot White Balance eliminates the need to prepare a reference object, such as a gray card, and allows for preset white balance measurement without changing lenses when a super-telephoto lens is used.This new option is most convenient with outdoor shooting, and sports and landscape photography.
    • A high-performance optical viewfinder utilizing a glass pentaprism and offering frame coverage of approximately 100%The optical viewfinder built into the D7100 offers frame coverage of approximately 100% for extremely precise framing of images, and magnification of approximately 0.94x* that makes all elements in the viewfinder display easy to see. Adoption of a very bright, high-contrast, low power consumption OLED display element ensures excellent visibility even in low temperatures.
    • OLED display elementAdoption of a very bright, high-contrast, low power consumption OLED display element ensures faster viewfinder display ((information display below image area) with excellent visibility even in low temperatures.
    • 3.2-inch, 1229 k-dot TFT LCD monitor with wide viewing angle utilizing a new RGBW arrayThe D7100 is equipped with a large, high-definition TFT LCD monitor with wide viewing angle for which an RGBW array that increases brightness has been adopted. This increases visibility with viewing in bright surroundings.
    • *With 50mm f/1.4 lens at infinity, -1.0 m-1.
  6. Support for 1920 x 1080/60i and 1920 x 1080/30p movie recordingThe combination of NIKKOR lenses, an imaging unit that does not include an optical low-pass filter, and the EXPEED 3 image-processing engine enables sharp, high-resolution imaging expression with movie recording as well. The Multi-area mode Full-HD D-Movie function supports movie recording using not only the standard DX-movie image area, but also the new 1.3x DX crop image area. The 1.3x DX crop option brings distant subjects closer with movie recording. In addition, the stereo microphone built into the pentaprism enables recording of high-quality stereo sound. The D7100 also supports recording of stereo sound via connection of the optional ME-1 stereo microphone.
  7. Support for the new WR-1 Wireless Remote Controller(available separately)The D7100 supports the WR-1, a highly functional transceiver that enables verification and adjustment of settings*1, as well as control over remote shooting. The WR-1 uses radio waves and supports 15 channels for communication over a maximum range of 120 m*2 between multiple WR-1s. Not only can one WR-1 be configured as a transmitter and a second as a receiver*3 to control operation of one remote camera, but multiple WR-1s can be configured as receivers for remote control over multiple cameras. A number of remote shooting options are available, including simultaneous release and synchronized release*4, as well as interval timer shooting and division of multiple cameras into groups for separate control over each group. Remote control is also possible using the WR-R10/WR-T10 combination.
