Nikon D7100 Sample Photos

Nikon D7100

I’ve got a review coming for the Nikon D7100 soon, but I wanted to go ahead and pass along some sample images from the camera that I recently shot (in addition to my Nikon D7100 sample video footage).  Check them out below.

This first round of images covering the ISO range were processed as RAW files in Lightroom and exported as JPEG. I did no additional edits. White balance was set to Auto under tungsten lighting.

The above 100% crop samples were taken from the scene shown in the following images.

Feel free to download any of these sample images for your personal inspection (not for republication).  You can get the original files by right-clicking on any of the images and choosing “Save link as…”

Overall, I have been very impressed with the image quality from the Nikon D7100. Throughout my time with the camera, I was continually wowed by what Nikon was able to do with 24-megapixels on the smaller DX-format sensor.

Particularly,  the RAW files are more impressive than what I have been accustomed to seeing on Canon’s various flavors of 18MP APS-C sensors. You’ll have a hard time selling me on any other APS-C DSLR currently on the market.

    I bought one, had to go through three to find one which shot well on all AF points, but once I did… WOW! You MUST use great lenses with it, but if you do, the clarity and sharpness down to the pixel-peeping level is simply unbelievable! Haziness is gone from the images. Out-of-Camera JPEGs can be printed directly, they don’t even need Photoshop’s Unsharp Mask. At high ISOs the grain looks more like film grain than color noise, which is a huge improvement, IMHO. Looks more “artistic”. At low ISOs the detail captured is stupendous. This will send everyone else back to their drawing boards as they rethink the AA filters on all DX DSLRS (except Pentax who already makes a non-AA model). I predict the Canon 7DII will see a delay as I’d imagine they’ll spec an imager without an AA filter.

    To put it another way, the D7100 files straight from the camera will compete with Canon 5D3 files until the ISO goes past 1000, and might even be a tick better from 100-800. No joke.
