Nikon Announces New 24.1-Megapixel D7100 Digital SLR without Optical Low Pass Filter

Posted by on Wednesday February 20, 2013 | Uncategorized

D7100_18_105_frontNikon unveiled a new digital DSLR for photo enthusiasts and “part-time pros” tonight, the 24.1-megapixel Nikon D7100.  The D7100, which uses a new APS-C-sized “DX-format” CMOS sensor, is the successor to the Nikon D7000, which was announced in September 2010.

The Nikon D7100 has a 51-point autofocus system with 15 cross-type sensor points; wireless connectivity; and like the Nikon D800E, it has no optical low pass filter (OLPF), in a move to increase the detail and sharpness in photos captured with the camera.

OLPFs are used to prevent the incidence of moiré in images where there is a preponderance of converging lines, such as in a suspension bridge or a building. A spokesperson for Nikon who we spoke with while getting some hands-on time with a D7100 prototype said he didn’t believe moiré would be a problem with this model.

To read more about the D7100, and about the WR-1 Wireless Transceiver for Nikon DSLR, which Nikon also announced tonight,  see our news story in the Gear section of PDNOnline.
