I wish they did. I'm a beginner and had the D7000 and dropped it in a river. hghuieahfiruoa!!!!!!! It came on after drying it out forever but was stuck in date setting mode. I sent it to Nikon to see if it was repairable. They sent it back saying unrepairable. fhdusiaorheuia!!!!!!

So I decided to upgrade to the D7100 since lenses still worked, but the LCD cover didn't work. And no places to attach one! jfdksapufjesaf;dk!!!!!!!

At work, I have a D7000 with a BM-11 LCD cover. Personnally, I have a D7100 with a Zagg protective sheet on the LCD. I needed something before going to Singapore, and could not get a Zagg fitted sheet in time. My local Best Buy had a Zagg 3 Pack and I trimmed one of these to fit. It installed easily, and has worked fine ever since. I use Zagg skins on my Nikon D7100 and D5100, iPhones(2), iPad, Garmin Zumo GPS, and Galaxy 3S work phone. I've never had a problem with any Zagg product, and the Zagg skin is much clearer than the BM-11.

From comparing photos, I suspect that the BM-14 cover, which was originally for the D600, is going to work on this camera; they both have 3.2" screens, and look almost identical, on the back.

I noticed the same thing. It doesn't look like Nikon is going to use an LCD cover on the D7100 which is a shame. If you look at the pic you will see the absence of attachment points and also raised areas on the edge of the LCD screen are not there.

My D70 and D7000 use LCD covers and those covers have saved the screens on both bodies on more than one occasion. I think Nikon is trying to push FX more and as a result the DX line is being push down towards the entry level photographer.

Buffer capacity for raw shots?

Any word on the buffer capacity for raw shots? In other words, how many raw shots can be captured at 6fps before the buffer slows you down?

I have a D7100 with two 64MB 45 MB/s Class 10 SDXC cards and I get the following in Raw only writing to slot 1 with slot 2 setup as Overflow.:

12 bit DX - 6
14 bit DX - 6
12 bit 1.3 Crop - 9
14 bit 1.3 Crop - 7

A 95 MB/s card might do better.

answer 4
The use of 95MB / s SD Card, 12-bit compressed RAW mode, and disabling the distortion correction you will achieve up to 12 images 6FP / s. In 1.3x mode, 6fp/s 17 images. While the buffer is small, but the electronic processing is very fast and makes emptying the buffer in less than 3 seconds. (provided you use a card capable of recording as fast)

Wow, so disappointing. Don't get me wrong, the D7100 is impressive, and It may be the new "Flagship" of the DX line, but is certainly not a D300s replacement. The small raw frame buffer is a deal-breaker for me. I have used a D7000 along with my D300 for years. The D7000 frame buffer kept it from being useful for action photography. Now the frame buffer on the 7100 is even less. Nikon, you let me down...

Question

What is the fastest SD card the D7100 can effectively make use of

I am looking forward to upgrading from the D7000 to the D7100. One issue with the D7000 is filling the buffer and waiting for the RAW photos to be transferred to the SD card. I would like to purchase SD cards that minimize the transfer time but I do not want to pay for speed in the card that the processor in the D7100 will not utilize when transferring photos. The manual for the D7000 says a class 6 card is needed as a minimum for continuous video. But I cannot find anywhere a card class or speed for fastest possible transfer of still photos to the card. Thank you..

answer 2
The D7100 can write at 99MB/s. I only managed to find one SD card (backed with read & write speed specs) that can come close to matching the D7100's write speed. The SanDisk Extreme Pro can support a write speed of 95 MB/s. Other makes that list fast speeds are only listing their read speeds; their write speeds are actually lower. They all read about the same speed.

Edit: There is a new SD card spec that was just recently released - UHS-II which supports a write speed of 250 MB/s. The D7100 is UHS-I compliant.

OK, must be UHS-1. But will the transfer time decrease with a 95MB/s SD card vs. a 45MB/s card? In other words, what is the limiting factor here, card or camera?

One caveat to JoeR's answer, there are some UHS-1 cards that go only up to 45mb/s vs others that go as high as 95mb/s so make sure you know what you're getting.

Multiple exposures to a single image is still limited to three.Page 141 of user's manual mentions it in the first sentence where it states that you can have two or three. Later it confuses the matter when it talks about gain being 1/2 for 2 exposures and 1/3 for three etc. The etc. makes you think that you can have more, but you can't.

Sorry about "greytourist" and "JoeR (Number one contributor)".
They bought miss up with multiple exposure and bracketing.
In multiple expose function D7100 create only one image file, but it is choice from 2 or 3 exposures. That is why that function named “multiple exposure”.
In Auto bracketing function D7100 create separate image files.
And it can be AE (Auto Expose) & Flash, AE only, Flash only, WB (White Balance), and ADL (Active D-Lighting) bracketing.
Auto bracketing Max number for D7100 is five, except ADL (Active D-Lighting) bracketing for which max is 3.
Good luck.

The D7000 did not get a burst speed boost with the battery pack attached. None of the literature -- or pre-release reviews -- mention any fps increase. Still 6 fps is better than some of Nikon's FX cameras.

answer 2
Technicaly MB-D15 grip use six AA batteries, which if you use rechargeble batteries, will produce 7.2 volts(the same voltage as original EN-EL 15 battery).

For FPS boost Nikon SLR cameras needs higher voltage.

For example D300, D300S grip used or 8 AA batteries, which provide 8.9 volts with rechargeble AA batteries and 12 volts with Alkaline AA batteries, or EN-EL4a rechargeable Li-ion battery, which providing 11.1 volts.
MB-D15 grip use only six AA batteries (Alkaline or Ni-MH or Lithium), or EN-EL 15 rechargeable Li-ion batteries. That meens camera will get only 7.2 volts.

You can access it by pressing the i button on the bottom left of the camera back. You will see the Information Screen with a small two line menu. Use the multi-selector to move the yellow cursor to the ML-3 menu item (bottom left) and press the OK button to access the ML-mode menu.

Nikon hasn't released the D7100's manual yet, but probably it's hidden in the Menus, like the D5x00.
And i agree: the lack of a "remote" setting in the release mode dial surely is a down.

As mentioned previously, the D7100 does not have a 50 ISO setting. It does have HI-0.3,0.7,1, and 2, corresponding to ISOs from 8000 to 26,500. See page 79 in the user's guide.

I would love a 50 ISO.

With the camera ready to shoot (no menu displayed), press the i button. The i button is the bottom button to the left of the screen. The screen display will have the ML-3 remote mode at the bottom left of the screen with a yellow cursor somewhere on the bottom two rows of the screen. Use the directional control to move the cursor to the ML-3 mode display. Press OK to bring up the ML-3 options and use the directional control to select the desired option. Press OK again, and your desired ML-3 mode is active. See page 10 of the User's Guide, The Information Display, and page 12, Changing Settings on the Information Display.

Just want to add, there are many third party LCD hoods/shades that are very effective in blocking out bright light.

Question

D7100 Moving Focus Point when shooting

I have spent hours alone with my new D7100 and with a professional photographer who shoots with Nikons. We cannot for the life of us figure this ONE Question out. How do you MOVE THE FOCUS POINT (Focal Point) around without being in Manual Focus Mode? We can do it without a problem on his Nikon (I think it was a D90).

I will further clarify: If we put the camera in Manual Focus, it allows us to move the focus point around both while viewing the LCD screen in the INFO mode and while looking in to the camera viewfinder. We CAN see the highlighted focal point and move it around with the d-pad.

But we cannot do this in the Auto-Focus mode. And, YES WE ARE in AF-S.

I would be so incredibly grateful for help in resolving this incredibly challenging issue.

I have searched the manual high and low and cannot find the solution.

Thank you!

You probably have the Focus Lock on. It is the ring around the Multi-selector and OK button on the right rear of the camera. If it is set to L, the focus position is locked. Move it to the dot, and make sure you are not set to Auto area-AF. You should now be able to move the focus point with the Multi-selector. Page 75 of the User's Guide covers this area. The mention the thing about not being in Auto area-AF in the box at the bottom of the page.

First be sure that your camera is in Single-Point AF Area Mode. If you are shooting in AF-S with Single-Point AF-Area Mode you will be able to move your focus point. The AF-Area mode is changed by pressing the AF mode button and rotating the sub-command dial (front dial). Additionally, the focus point will be locked if the Focus Selector Lock on the back of the camera is set to "L".

An important thing to note is that the focus point will only move if the viewfinder and control panel have been activated by a half-press of the shutter release button. When you half-press the shutter release button the focus point will be activated, along with the viewfinder and control panel shutter speed and aperture displays. You will then be able to move the focus point using the multi-selector. This is deactivated after about 6 seconds if no operations are performed. You can adjust the amount of time the focus point remains active by changing the Standby Timer settings (C2 in custom settings menu).

99% of the time, the quality of photographs will be IMPROVED without the anti-aliasing filter. That filter causes images to be 'slightly' less sharp, in the interest of preventing moire distortion. Removing the filter will cause images to be slightly sharper, and that is always a good thing.

The innovative sensor design delivers the ultimate in image quality by defying convention; because of the high resolution and advanced technologies, the optical low pass filter (Anti-Aliasing filter) is no longer used. Info from dpreview.

There is no hard cover like the D7000 has, but I use a Zagg cover that works great. The D7100 cover was not available at my local Best Buy, but I bought a larger one and cut it to size. You can get the D7100 from the Zagg website. I was leaving for Singapore and could not wait.

Question

Does the D7100 work with FX format lenses?

I'm looking for something to replace my D300s, but something that's not too pricey. Not sure if the D7100 is in fact a good replacement for that, or if Nikon actually HAS a successor to the D300s planned for the future (like a D400 or something).

There are some lenses that will not work. IX-Nikkor lenses cannot be used. Page 295 and 296 of the User's Guide list 20 notes about lens incompatibility or reduced capability.

The Type G or D AF Nikkor, AF-S, and AF-I Nikkor should all work. There is a warning on page 78 of the User's Guide about using AF lenses other than AF-S in manual mode. When using a non-AF-S lens in manual, you must switch both the lens and camera to manual. Failure to do so could damage the camera or lens.

Question

D7100 Raw files now?

Which version of Capture NX, if any, supports importing Raw files from the D7100 and exporting TIFFs for editing?

I understand waiting for third-party support in CS6 and Aperture, but getting a camera that comes with no image-editing software and can't export native files for other programs is a tad frustrating.

Too many differences to list, suggest you use the compare tool on Nikon's website.
Best for portrait? D600 with 85mm 1.4 or if your budget doesn't allow then the 85mm 1.8.

Cant really compare them as they are two different machines, the main difference being DX and FX but that is just the start, there is too much to list on here, saying that, if it were me id go for the D600 as it will produce better dof at smaller apertures, ideal for portraits.

headphone monitoring in slide show mode issues

I recently purchased a nikon d7100. while not connected to the hd tv, the audio in playback mode will come through on the headphones but no audio in slide show mode, only through the built in speakers. Has anyone had this issue before? The manual doesn't mention this. I'm worried this maybe a defect.

We suggest you use the compare tool on the cameras webpage to see what the differences between the two cameras are. Click the box next to 'compare' below the D7100, then click the blue bar (Archived Digital SLR cameras) below the last row of current cameras to load the archive cameras, then click the compare box below the D300, and click Compare.

There can be some lag due to focusing. The actual shutter lag is minimal.

The default setting for AF-C (Auto Focus - Continuous Servo) is Shutter Priority. The shutter releases when the shutter release button is fully pressed, regardless of the focus.

The default setting for AF-S (Auto Focus - Single Servo) is Focus Priority. The shutter releases when the shutter release button is fully pressed and the image is in focus. If you pre-focus by pressing the shutter release button halfway, then the shutter will release almost instantly when the shutter release button is then fully pressed.

AF-C and AF-S can be set to Shutter Priority or Focus Priority. These are set in the Custom Setting Menu, item a1 and a2. See page 331 in the User's Guide.
