Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor
The D7100 employs a Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor with approx. 24.1 effective megapixels. It adopts an image sensor unit designed without an optical low-pass filter to take full advantage of the high resolving power only realized by utilizing a high pixel count. This allows the camera to bring out the true resolving power of 24.1 megapixels combined with NIKKOR lenses to deliver an amazingly sharp rendering of details. Even if trimmed or enlarged, the images retain exquisite detail reproduction.
"EXPEED 3" image-processing engine
EXPEED 3 processes multiple tasks in parallel while maintaining high precision to bring out the full potential of the 24.1 megapixels. It excels at color reproduction, gradation processing and image quality at high sensitivity. It reproduces human skin tone, hair and eye lashes more faithfully. Furthermore, from image processing and card recording to image playback and image transfer, EXPEED 3 manages massive amounts of data at high speed. Even with Active D-Lighting and high ISO noise reduction, continuous shooting speed is not sacrificed, realizing relaxed shooting. It also contributes to saving energy in the camera.
Spot White Balance -- allows preset of white balance during live view shooting
The D7100 comes equipped with a Spot White Balance function that allows you to easily acquire preset manual data based on a specific area of the frame you select during live view. This means that you can effectively achieve pinpoint white balance setting according to the selected subject or a part of it during live view. The selected Spot White Balance area can be moved around with the multi selector in the frame. This eliminates the need to use a gray card, so that you can quickly acquire preset data without changing lenses even with a super-telephoto lens attached. This can come in handy when shooting sports indoors or in stadiums where various types of lights are mixed, as it allows you to quickly preset the white balance to avoid missing decisive moments.
Active D-Lighting for enhanced image quality
Even when shooting high-contrast scenes in backlit situations, Active D-Lighting preserves details in both highlight areas with varied brightness (e.g. gradation of the sky) and shadowy areas, maintaining moderate contrast to reproduce brightness as you see it. The D7100 employs a new image-processing system that delivers superior reproduction without shifting color phase even when the strength level is increased. Image-processing time is reduced by high-speed and highly accurate, real-time processing within pipelines. Furthermore, color reproduction is largely improved thanks to the image-processing engine EXPEED 3.
