Comparing Nikon D7100 vs Nikon D5300

1.Substantially more megapixels (photo)
24.71MPvs 24.1MP (Nikon D5300)
2.Substantially more focus points
51vs 39 (Nikon D5300)
The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
3.Noticeably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
6fpsvs 5fps (Nikon D5300)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
4.Clearly longer battery life
950shotsvs 600shots (Nikon D5300)
CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
5.Faster video autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting movies
Yesvs No (Nikon D5300)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper movies.
6.Significantly better color depth
24.2bitsvs 24bits (Nikon D5300)
The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. Source: DxOMark.
7.Has a 24p cinema mode
Yesvs No (Nikon D5300)
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
8.Substantially faster maximum shutter speed
0.000125svs 0.00025s (Nikon D5300)
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
9.Has a microphone in
Yesvs No (Nikon D5300)
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
10.Measurably higher resolution (screen)
1228k dotsvs 1037k dots (Nikon D5300)
A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
11.Has a built-in focus motor
Yesvs No (Nikon D5300)
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. With it built into the camera, you still have the function when using a lens without its own motor. This allows you to use a wider range of lenses.
12.Weather sealed
Yesvs No (Nikon D5300)
Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.
13.Clearly faster flash X-sync
0.004svs 0.005s (Nikon D5300)
Flash synchronization is defined as the firing of a photographic flash coinciding with the shutter admitting light to the image sensor. In general, faster flash sync speeds are better if the photographer needs to flash-fill subjects that are backlit and wants to avoid motion blur, or wants to increase depth of field by using a high aperture.
14.Has dual card slots
Yesvs No (Nikon D5300)
It has two memory card slots, allowing you to store more photos without switching cards. This is particularly useful on long shoots when you need more space.
15.A battery charger come with the Nikon D7100
No external battery charger.
