There’s a lot to like about Nikon’s newest DX-format HD-SLR — the D7200.
Featuring a 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor with no optical low-pass filter (OLPF) and EXPEED 4 image processor (30% faster), the D7200 — with its durable yet lightweight magnesium alloy body — is capable of incredibly fast performance and capturing phenomenally detailed, sharp images and HD video.
Here are a few of the highlights:
• The D7200 is the first Nikon HD-SLR to feature both built-in Wi-Fi and Near Field Communication (NFC) that allow for seamless connectivity and sharing via compatible smart devices. Via NFC, users can simply touch their device to the camera for easy connectivity, while built-in Wi-Fi also allows user to employ their smartphone for simple playback and sharing, as well as a remote shutter and monitor.
• Picture Controls, now including Flat and Clarity settings, help you craft each individual image. These controls have been expanded for use in Live View, while artistic effects can be applied to both stills and video in real time, offering the ultimate in creative control.
• The D7200 inherits many of the high-end video capabilities of Nikon’s full frame HD-SLRs, the Nikon D810 and Nikon D750 — so this camera is sure to become a favourite with videographers. It’s able to record uncompressed and compressed Full HD 1080 footage at 30/25/24p and 1080 at 60/50p in 1.3x Crop Mode. Additionally, Auto ISO sensitivity is now available in manual mode, helping create smooth exposure transitions without changing shutter speed or aperture.
• Another nice-to-have is a built-in stereo microphone with 20 step adjustments. The D7200 is also the first Nikon DX-format HD-SLR to feature a built-in Time Lapse Mode with exposure smoothing, making capturing a beautiful sunset time-lapse easier than ever.
We’re expecting the D7200 to arrive the middle of the month. You can preorder yours today.
