We met up with Nathaniel Johnston, the owner of NJohnston Photography, for an hour and recorded him as he shot with the Nikon D7100. He shares his thoughts on the new camera in this video.

Nikon D7100

Below are a few facts that Nathaniel shared with us that didn’t make it to the video:

Onboard Audio

The D7100 has onboard Stereo Microphones which capture better audio than most DSLR cameras have currently. There is also a headphone port so that you can monitor sound while recording.

Recording Video

The AF tracking mode while recording video becomes useless, it is really just for still shots. However, the quality of the film is good and has a great dynamic range.

The Kit Lens

The 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S Nikkor Lens is light and steady with good VR. All in all, it’s a good value for the money.

So should you get a D7100?

The Nikon D7100 is not a replacement for the D7000. Rather, it is meant to be alongside it as the Flagship model in the DX format range. So, if you are looking to level up to a higher level DSLR, definitely give the D7100 consideration. If you already have a high power DSLR, the 7100 is a great camera to consider as a secondary or backup camera to add to your arsenal.
