Nikon has just announced the latest edition to its prosumer line of DSLR cameras. The D7100 is the direct successor to the D7000, and features a new 24.1MP DC format sensor as well as a new EXPEED 3 image processor.


The D7100 also touts a 51 point auto-focus system (15 cross-type), all of which are powered by a new Multi-CAM 3500DX AF module. The D7100 is capable of six frames per second shooting at full resolution, seven when using the 1.3x crop mode. ISO ranges from 100 all the way to 6400 and is expandable up to 25,600 when in Hi-2 ISO mode. The camera also features dual SD card ports, which should allow multi-image format capture.


Video capabilities are set at 1080p at 30fps or 60i and 50i in 1.3x crop mode. Sound is captured through an internal stereo microphone or users can opt to use an external mic through the supplied jack. The viewfinder has also been upgraded to an OLED, with 100% frame coverage. In addition, a wireless mobile adapter will allow the camera to communicate with devices up to 49 feet away.
