Nikon D7100 becomes official without an anti-aliasing filter

Nikon has finally announced a replacement for the D7000, called D7100, as another camera without an anti-aliasing filter.

Last week, the company sent invitations to an event in Thailand and other countries. Nikon was rumored to introduce a new camera for the high-end consumer market and sources said that the D7000 replacement was finally coming.

However, other sources said that they have not heard anything in that aspect and that only a new compact camera will be unveiled. Well, this is the reason why people should not always trust rumors. Nothing is certain until it becomes official, so the D7100 has stepped out of its “uncertainty” phase and it has become Nikon’s high-end DX-format DSLR camera for consumers.

The Nikon D7100 features a brand new 24.1-megapixel CMOS sensor, which waves goodbye to the low-pass filter, following in the footsteps of the D800E. Professional photographers claim that the loss of the conventional anti-aliasing filter will make images look sharper, but more susceptible to moiré.

This camera has jumped into the 24-megapixel bandwagon, along with the other DX-format DSLR cameras, D3200 and D5200.

Nikon D7100 also features a 51-point autofocus point system, ISO range between 100 and 6,400 (which can be extended to 25,600 thanks to the Hi2 option), stereo microphones, 1,900mAh battery, full HD 1920 x 1080 video recording at 30p or 60i, 3.2-inch 1,229K-dot LCD screen, and an OLED display in the optical viewfinder.

The new OLED viewfinder will allow photographers to see the shooting settings while composing images. According to the Japan-based company, photographers can see 100% of the frame in the viewfinder, thus having the ability to frame the images in a proper way.

The new DX-format shooter is powered by an EXPEED 3 image processor, which can also be found in the D4.

New 51-point autofocus system and 1.3x DX crop function

Nikon adds that the 51-point AF system is entirely new and that it receives help from the new Multi-CAM 3500DX AF module. Moreover, the system comes packed with a 3D Color Matrix Metering II 2,016-pixel RGB sensor, which improves exposure values. From the 51 AF points, 15 of them are cross-type points.

The Nikon D7100 supports a burst mode of up to six shots. The total can be taken up to seven shots when making use of the new 1.3x DX crop function. However, this function will downgrade image quality to 15.4-megapixel and video quality to 1920 x 1080 at 60i / 50i, with the 30p option no longer available in this mode.

Images will be saved on a pair of SD cards, found in the usual spot for a Nikon camera.

Overall, the D7100 body is not that different from its predecessor’s design. However, the changes become “visible” when referring to the internal hardware.

Dust and moisture resistant DSLR camera to become available soon

The camera maker confirmed that the D7100 sports a construction similar to the one of the D300S, thus making the new DSLR resistant to dust and moisture.

The Nikon D7100 release date has been scheduled for March 2013. The DSLR is now available for pre-order at select retailers. The new anti-aliasing filter-less camera will cost $1,599.95 with an AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens, while the body-only package will cost merely $1,199.95.
