To learn more, read  the complete press release for the product:

Tokyo - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the advanced, high-performance DX-format D7100 digital SLR camera.

The D7100 is a compact, lightweight camera (W x H x D: approx. 135.5 x 106.5 x 76 mm; weight: approx. 675 g that offers superior portability. It is loaded with features that enable excellent subject acquisition and rendering performance capable of reproducing the finest details.

The high density of 51-point AF system accurately acquires the intended subject for superior subject acquisition and tracking performance. Cross-type sensors have been adopted for the 15 most frequently used focus points at the center of the frame. In addition, the center focus point (cross-type) is fully functional with lenses with a maximum aperture of f/8. This means faster, more precise autofocusing with a variety of conditions. The D7100 is also equipped with a new crop image area, 1.3x DX crop, which increases the angle of view by approximately 1.3x that of the standard DX-format angle of view. This effectively increases lens focal length to an equivalent angle of view of approximately 2x, making distant subjects larger. In addition, the 51 focus points cover the entire image area when 1.3x DX crop is enabled for quick and certain acquisition of subjects moving randomly through the frame with high-speed continuous shooting at approximately 7 fps.

The D7100 is also equipped with a DX-format CMOS sensor, an effective pixel count of 24.1-million pixels, the high-performance EXPEED 3 image-processing engine, and does not have an optical low-pass filter. These features enable excellent rendering with high resolution. The incredible potential of the high pixel count, high-definition D7100 can be maximized by the use of NIKKOR lenses, which offer superior rendering performance made possible with Nikon's own optical technologies.
The D7100 also offers a number of new functions that improve operation and support more natural and efficient shooting, including Spot White Balance, a white balance Preset Manual option that allows users to choose a specific subject from which white balance is measured with shooting in live view. Additionally, the D7100 features an RGBW array that enables more effective accumulation of light, as well as a large, 3.2-inch high-resolution TFT LCD monitor with wide viewing angle, and an button that enables direct access to frequently used function.
