Nikon D7100 Shutter Count Check

The Nikon D7100 is an recent, mid-range DSLR. As such, it has most of the options we might like for back-button focusing and is much easier to use in this mode than the D5100 or the D40x. It does add the option of allowing shutter release when the camera senses an out-of-focus condition in both the AF-S and AF-C modes. Therefore we do not need to hold down the back focus button when we recompose the shot. In AF-A or AF-C modes, the camera may still refocus on its own as things move or when we recompose the shot.

Things to watch out for:

Once the back-button focus mode is set on the D7100, it is active for all camera modes except the user modes. As a result, a 1/2 press of the shutter button does not provide any focusing. Also, the camera won't prevent you from taking pictures which are out of focus. This presents an opportunity to take a lot of pictures which are out of focus. Check your images!
Once nice thing that you can do with the D7100 is to assign one of the user modes to be the back-button focus mode. That way all the standard camera modes operate as usual, but you can quickly switch to back-button focus at any time.
