The D7100's 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 1.3x crop factor, and the D7100 is the ultimate tool for those seeking a lightweight DX-format HD-SLR. The D600 has been archieved. For an FX option, the D610 or D750 would be great choices as well for astronomy photography. D610's 24.3 megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor, wide dynamic range and high S/N (signal-to-noise) ratio captures every detail with lifelike sharpness and low noise throughout its wide ISO range. Low-light performance is synonymous with Nikon—shoot crystal clear images from ISO 100 to 6400, expandable down to 50 and up to 25,600 for extreme situations. EXPEED 3 processing system manages all that data with remarkable speed and accuracy, enabling up to 6 fps continuous shooting at full resolution in both FX and DX formats. Here is a good article from Learn and Explore that talks about shooting the Night Sky: http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Learn-An...

Question

D7100 odd writing to SD issue

I shot a wedding yesterday and around the 300th shot the camera was taking pictures just fine but it kept showing the 300th shot only, I shot several frames and nothing, it just kept showing that one shot. Basically it wasn't writing to the SD card. I turned it off\on and still had the problem. I turned the camera off, removed and re-inserted the SD card and that fixed it. My questions is, is this the camera or the card?

The files on the card were fine, they dumped to the computer without a problem and the card\camera seems fine now. I just don't know if I can trust it or not now?

Thanks,

The D7100 has fantastic ISO performance at both ends of the spectrum—down to ISO 100 and up to ISO 6400. Noise (randomly-spaced bright pixels, fog, or lines) is more likely at higher sensitivities. Use the High ISO NR option in the shooting menu to reduce noise (see page 228). If the shutter speed selected for Minimum shutter speed is slower than sync speed selected for Custom Setting e1 (Flash sync speed on page 244), the sync speed will be used as the minimum shutter speed for auto ISO sensitivity control during flash photography. Note that ISO sensitivity may be raised automatically when auto ISO sensitivity control is used in combination with slow sync flash modes (available with the built-in flash and the optional flash units listed on page 304), possibly preventing the camera from selecting slow shutter speeds. When auto ISO sensitivity control is in effect, the adjusted and selected values appear in the information display as shown at right. Sample images can be found on the D7100's product page.

Depth of field is defined as "the zone of acceptable sharpness in front of and behind the subject on which the lens is focused." Simply put: how sharp or blurry is the area behind your subject. The lower the f/stop—the larger the opening in the lens—the less depth of field—the blurrier the background. You’ll want to shoot with the lens wide open, so you’ll want to use a shooting mode of Aperture Priority or Manual. Manual gives you the ability to choose both your aperture and shutter speed, whereas Aperture Priority allows you to choose the f/stop while the camera chooses the appropriate shutter speed for the exposure. You could also use the Flexible Program mode, choosing the widest possible aperture/shutter speed combination. To increase the likelihood of visible depth of field in your photographs, increase the distance between your subject and the background. You can do this by decreasing the distance between the camera and subject. The more shallow the depth-of-field, or further the background is, the more out-of-focus it will be.

Zoom lenses are ideal when you do not know in advance the situation you will be shooting in i.e. when you are photographing a variety of subjects such as landscapes and portraits and you just want one lens for both situations. Prime lenses tend to be more compact and light weight. They are designed for a specific purposes and so contain fewer lens elements in them, this makes them lighter than zoom lenses that cover a wider range of possibilities and have more complex lens groups as a consequence. Prime lenses also tend to have a larger maximum aperture (f1.4 to f2.8). This is an advantage when shooting in low light conditions as it will increase the possibility of hand holding the camera and freezing the subject without shake or blur caused by long exposures. Photographing using prime lenses with large aperture lenses also means you can get a shallow depth of field, this is useful for portraiture where the background can be thrown out of focus to concentrate the viewer's attention on the subject. Large apertures on prime lenses also provide more light through the lens which makes the subject clearer to see when focusing through the viewfinder, so can help ensure sharp images. Standard lenses are popular as they are closest to the angle of view we see as humans. These lenses have minimal distortion, which can be flattering to the subject. These lenses tend to use large apertures and allow a lot of light to enter the lens which makes them fast to use in low light conditions. The large apertures (f1.4 – f2.8) also produce a pleasing out of focus effect to the background which focuses the attention of the viewer on the subject. Standard lenses are the popular choice for a wide range of photography including portraiture and low light situations where the photographer can not use a flash or is looking to capture the scene with available light.

Press trash can button and metering button, "FOR" flashes, press trash can and metering button again, card should be formatted.(metering button is on top right of camera next to record button). Make sure you are using an approved memory card it is inserted properly. If you still can't get it to format call Nikon service and support. In the US it is 800-NIKON-US. If you are not in the US log onto Nikon.com and find your country.

If the D7100's built-in flash is up, you can gently push to lower the flash until it clicks shut. When shooting in Auto mode, the built-in flash will continue to pop unless the camera is in another exposure mode such as P,S,A,or M. These will allow you to manually pop the built-in flash.
