Nikonians author Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell) reports his newest book, Mastering the Nikon D7100 is now available for pre-order at Amazon.com. The USA site is currently showing the book with a 34% savings ($26.37 instead of $39.95). The UK site is also showing it available at £30.99.
Darrell has been working with this camera with the meticulous attention to detail required in preparing an extensive handbook and he took a break from his research to share his first impressions:
"The Nikon D7100 camera takes all the mature features of the Nikon D7000 and combines them with the best features of the Nikon D600. It then imitates the Nikon D800E by removing the low-pass (AA or blur filter), leading to the sharpest DX camera in existence, and even adds the professional 51-point AF system for powerful autofocus.
The camera is a dream for an advanced enthusiast who has DX lenses and maybe a few FX lenses. The D7100 is fast, has a unique 2x crop mode, a 100% viewfinder, 24 MP, and 1080p video that can either be recorded to the memory cards or by streaming to an external recorder, such as the Atomos Ninja-2, through the HDMI port.
The D7100 is the current flagship DX camera and my ultimate goal in writing Mastering the Nikon D7100 is to cover every detail of the camera in easy to understand language and with copious graphics"
We have heard from a reputable source that the projected availability of this new book will be much sooner than the current November projection. In fact it should probably be closer to September availability.
As always, this new edition of NikoniansPress Books will carry a 50% discount voucher code for a one year Gold Membership.
