Behind the Shot: Flames of the North: Digital Photography Review

Nature photographer Erez Marom had cold feet - literally - when he created this image. Standing (with thermal boots on) in the freezing waters of a glacier lagoon in Iceland, he saw an opportunity to capture a unique ice formation in the foreground, distant snow-capped mountains and the Aurora Borealis above it all.

New mid-range, enthusiast-focused APS-C DSLR from Nikon is here - the D7100. There is also a cool new radio remote control- The WR-1 that lets you remotely control multiple cameras capturing stills and videos, even time-lapse sequences.

The D7100 promises high resolution by making do without an optical low-pass filter in front of its 24MP CMOS sensor. It gains a more sophisticated 51-point autofocus system and a 7fps 1.3x cropped shooting mode that provides a 2x crop compared to a 35mm system. The D7100 has a recommended price of $1,599/£1,299/€1,399 with 18-105mm F3.5-5.6 VR lens.
