[MUSIC PLAYING] Hello, I'm Lindsay Silverman, a Senior Product Manager for Nikon DSLR. And I'm here with the first look at the D7100 DX format DSLR. D7100 incorporates a 24.1 megapixel DX-Format CMOS Sensor, without an optical low pass filter. D7100's wide ISO range starts at ISO 100 and moves all the way up to 6,400, so you can shoot in the most ideal conditions or in extremely low light. And for those of you shoot in really poor lighting, there's even a Hi-1 and a Hi-2 setting that take show all the way up to 25,600 equivalent ISO. D7100 incorporates a 51 point auto focus system, with 15 cross type sensors, including the center cross type sensor that can read lenses down as slow as F8. What that means to anybody who's using a telephoto lens and the compatible teleconverter is that you get full auto focus performance with that combination. D7100 also includes Nikon's 2016 RGB Pixel 3D Color Matrix Metering Sensor, so that you get just really accurate metering in the most fluid situations. D7100 also can shoot at up to six frames per second when you're shooting 12-bit NEF or raw files or finished files like a JPEG file. One of the features of the new D7100 is that it's got a 1.3X Crop Mode. This is an additional crop mode to what you have built into the camera already. And when you go to that crop mode, the camera can boost its frame rate up to seven frames per second. So if you need a little extra reach and you need a little extra burst speed, the 1.3x Crop Mode is the way to go. But I don't just use fast speeds in the camera for sports and action. I do a technique called high-dynamic range. And I like to bracket my exposures in-camera. And D7100 is really well-equipped to do that, as well. It's got a three stop bracketing function that you can set up to 1EV, 2EV-steps, or even 3EV-steps, and a five-exposure bracket that you can do 1EV, 2EV, or 3EV-steps. And I handhold my camera most of the time. I don't have a tripod with me. I use the Nikon's VR Image Stabilized lenses. And so, I like to be fluid in the scene. And so, I set my auto-bracketing, I have my camera set to continuous high speed, and when I shoot, I shoot it at fast burst rates, so I get the bracket in rapid succession, so I have a better chance of getting my camera in perfect register when I'm shooting. So don't think about high-burst rate just for sports and action, think of it for alternative uses, as well. Now, built into D7100 is a two-stop HDR-- or High Dynamic Range feature-- that allows the camera to take two successive shots, in rapid fashion, and underexposes one and overexposes another so that you could bring out the high-dynamic range within the scene, all within the camera and without any extra software. The D7100 also includes a 3.2 inch, super sharp, 1.2 million dot LCD screen, perfect for menu reading, for looking at an image during playback and examining for critical sharpness. It's also ideal for using Live View for stills and Live View for movies. It really aids in your composition. The Optical Viewfinder on D7100 is a 100% optical viewfinder type, and it includes a data readout system that uses an overlay data display for a really super sharp, crystal clear lettering of the most relevant settings when you're out taking pictures. If you're someone who likes to just point and shoot the camera, or to someone who likes to control the camera from every aspect-- including exposure and focus-- D7100 has controls that are easily accessible to do that. On the mode dial itself, we have our traditional controls, like Manual Control, Aperture Priority, Shudder Priority, and Program. There's even a C-mode setting on there, if you want to shoot with point and shoot simplicity. And there's an Effects Mode section on the camera that allows you to apply to real-time effects for stills and video, really neat effects like miniature effect, selective color, and a high ISO mode, like a night vision mode. And you can do those, like I said, in real-time. So you don't have to take a picture and then go back to your computer and work those images. You can do them at the time you're shooting the picture or recording your video. D7100 also incorporates some of my favorite features when I'm out taking pictures. It's got a Depth of Field Preview button that allows you to see depth of field through the optical viewfinder. You can do multiple exposures in-camera. It's got an interval timer. It's got a built-in spot meter, which I use quite a lot. And a new feature to D7100 is when you're in a Live View for stills or Live View for video, a spot white balance feature. It allows you to take a preset white balance reading from a very narrow area within the scene, and you can be really precise with your white balance settings. For those of you who like to record video, D7100 includes 1080p at 30, 25, and 24 frames per second, and 16:9 aspect ratio. For those of you that like to shoot any kind of action type of sequences with video, you could shoot at 720 at the 60p. Or if you're in the new 1.3x Crop Mode, you can shoot it 60i or 50i. D7100 includes built-in stereo microphone, a stereo microphone jack, if those of you want to add the ME-1 Stereo Microphone. For auto focus, we have full-time auto focus, subject tracking auto focus, wide area, and narrow area auto focus. You can manually focus, as well. Manual exposure, auto exposure are options for shooting, recording video. For those of you who want the highest quality video out of D7100, you can use the HDMI jack out with an HDMI cable going into a video recorder and get uncompressed video and simultaneous Live View. Rounding out the other video features is a dedicated video Start and Stop Record button on top of the camera, by the shutter release, a dedicated video Live View setting so that you can separate your video controls from you're still image controls, when in Live View, and a special effects mode that allows you to record video, in real time, with really fun effects like Color Sketch, Selective Color, or Miniature Effect. D7100 also includes a built-in flash for iTTL Fill Flash. And through the Menu system of the camera, you can even set a commander mode for two group, off-camera, wireless flash control. D7100 is a DX-format DSLR, and it can take all of Nikon's DX-Format Nikkor lenses. Now, I've got on here the 18-105 A-FS lens, which has got VR Image Stabilization. So if your handholding the camera, it gives you really rock steady capability to take pictures without camera shake. And it's versatile enough to shoot small groups, architecture, interiors, and even head and shoulder portrait shots. One of the more exciting aspects of digital imaging today is to take those high-quality, high-resolution D7100 images and share them with friends and family. Using the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adaptor, you can send images to a compatible smartphone or tablet. You can even use the smartphone or tablet and take pictures remotely. [MUSIC PLAYING]
