For a slightly less intimidating feel, the Nikon d7100 is perfect for a photographer who is entering into their wildlife photography journey. That said, the D7100 provides all the quality you would expect in order to get impressive wildlife shots. The D7100 DSLR Camera from Nikon is a high performance, compact DSLR camera with high resolution photo and Full HD video capability. The 24.1MP DX-format CMOS sensor provides superior images with accurate colors and, designed without an optical low-pass filter, it maximizes its resolution for exceptionally sharp details. The EXPEED 3 image processor brings with it stable, high-speed response, including a continuous shooting speed of up to 6 frames per second. With an ISO sensitivity range that expands to a 25600 ISO equivalent, low-light photography is sharp and detailed with less noise and fast-moving subjects are captured with more accuracy and less blur. At the low end of ISO sensitivity (ISO 100) images display vibrant colors with rich tones, making this the perfect option if you want something that packs more punch than a bridge, or point-and-shoot camera.
