    The Nikon D7100 is a 24.1-megapixel digital single-lens reflex camera model announced by Nikon in February 2013. It is a 'prosumer' model that replaces the Nikon D7000 as Nikon's flagship DX-format camera, fitting between the company's entry-level and professional DSLR models.

    The D7100 is a great camera for still photography, but doesn't feel like a must-have upgrade unless you've got a significant investment in good Nikon-mount lenses and need speed and durability on a budget.

    Does nikon d7100 have autofocus motor?
    richard.kulas
    7 months ago
    The Nikon D7100 has a built-in focus motor for use with “older” non-AF-S lenses. That works noticeably slower but we have not tested it extensively. Maintaining AF with built-in AF motor is a major plus compared to the Nikon D3200 or Nikon D5200, if you use old Nikon lenses without built-in AF motor.

    florance
    7 months ago
    The easiest way to set up your Nikon camera as a webcam is to use the new Nikon Webcam Utility. First, download and install the free Nikon Webcam Utility program for either PC or Mac. Next, you should connect your Nikon camera to your computer using a simple USB plug-and-play method. And that's it.

    There is no plug on the camera for that AC cable to go. The only way to power the camera from AC power is to get an adapter that looks like a battery and have it sit in the battery slot. You must remove the battery from the camera to charge it.

    30 minutes - As the others have said, you can do up to 30 minutes in camera. You can also use a cheap PVR device or high quality external recorder to capture hours of continuous video from the cameras hdmi port.

    The D7100 also includes a highly sought-after feature that makes the D7100 quite a professional-level video camera: uncompressed, clean HDMI output. This feature is not found on many video-capable still cameras, and is typically seen on high-end video and cinema cameras.
