With reliable ingenuity for life’s adventures, Nikon’s latest DX-format DSLR pushes the limits for enthusiasts in a suite of features for low-light photography, social connectivity, excellence in image quality and Full HD videos. The new delivers exceptional performance with outstanding technology, innovative imaging solutions, a new seamless connectivity feature, and distinction in function, design and build. Outstanding image quality is further assured even in low-light conditions, with the new autofocus (AF) sensor module that is also utilised by the Nikon D750, and an AF detection range down to -3EV. Nikon D7200 takes the journey further by allowing photographers to share adventures in real time via built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity with Near Field Communication (NFC)-support, the latter being a first for Nikon DSLRs.
D7200 Primary Features
With the incorporation of an EXPEED 4 imageprocessing engine, colours and fine details are accurately captured, ensuring consistent performance whether taking beautiful portraits with natural luminous skin tones or gorgeous cityscapes. Images are clear, sharp, and defined with this 24.2 megapixel shooter, perfect for subjects that require fine detail rendering such as foliage or breath-taking landscapes. An ISO range of 100 to 25600 is achieved with the EXPEED 4 image-processing engine, which also provides improved noise reduction performance, while maintaining image definition at high ISO. Should photographers wish to shoot monochrome masterpieces, the ISO range can be further extended to Hi BW 1 (equivalent to ISO 51200) and Hi BW 2 (equivalent to ISO 102400).
The Picture Control option of “Flat” allows overblown highlights, shadows or colour saturation to be effectively suppressed even after image adjustment, achieving rich gradation in both brightness and colour. Further flexible adjustments such as “Clarity”, lets photographers adjust the crispness of still images while maintaining details and saturation of the subject. Special Effects modes injecting creativity and fun into every shot is made possible with variable options such as Night Vision, Colour Sketch, Miniature Effect, Selective Colour, and others, of all which can be visualised in real time, before shots are captured.
A magnesium alloy has been incorporated into the top and rear covers for durability and superior texture, keeping the camera light yet strong, while a comprehensively-sealed body protects the camera from dust and water droplets. The top-tier DX-format performance ideally fits in a body that is compact in size and weight with approximately 1,250g when combined with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens, and its EN-EL15 battery, allowing them to pack smarter and maximise space.
Low-light photography, is made easy with the 51 focus points of the new Advanced MultiCAM 3500 II autofocus sensor module. Superior low-light performance is further enhanced with an expanded AF detection range down to -3EV. With the AF detection range down to -3 EV for the single central focus point, and at -2 EV or below (above -3 EV) with the other 50 points, the freedom to shoot low-light and low-contrast scenes has been remarkably boosted.
The optical viewfinder is the perfect framing aid with approximately 100% frame coverage, featuring superior light transmission ratio and colouration, for perfectly lined-up shots. This is perfectly accompanied by a high resolution 1,229k-dot, 3.2-inch LCD display, with RGBW alignment, for enhanced visibility, ensuring clear and vibrant colours on a bright screen as one reviews shots on the camera.
Ideal for capturing lightning-fast action up close, subjects can be captured in a larger size when using a lens with the same focal length, with a 1.3x image area option (approximately 15.4 megapixels) that elevates the telephoto shooting experience. The 51-point AF system comprehensively covers the 1.3x image area, providing superior subject-acquisition performance even for quick-moving objects over a wide area.
Select, send and upload high-quality images on favourite social media platforms seamlessly. The D7200 makes on-the-go connectivity even simpler with its built-in Wi-Fi® capability and NFC-support, the latter being a pioneer feature on a Nikon DSLR. Photographers can now wirelessly transfer images to a smart device through the free Wireless Mobile Utility application, available for iOS or Android devices. The built-in Wi-Fi® also enables remote shooting with a smart device, especially when taking photographs from tricky angles while minimising camera shake.
Leveraging on the connectivity features, professional photographers can tap on a suite of optional wireless accessories to maximise workflow efficiency. The WR-1/WR-R10/WR-T10 Wireless Remote Controllers enable efficient remote shooting in the studio, while the WT- 5A/B/C/D Wireless Transmitters together with a UT-1 Communication Unit provide stable, high-speed data transmission directly to computers and FTP servers.
Experience greater freedom to create and experiment with majestic shots of beautiful light trails and similar burst mode captures. With an extended buffer capacity, the number of shots recordable during continuous shooting is increased to a magnificent 100 shots* 3 in large image size, JPEG fine-format, 18 shots in RAW, 14-bit lossless compressed, and 27 shots in RAW, 12-bit lossless compressed. When using the CH or CL release mode with a shutter speed slower than 4 seconds.
A first for a Nikon DX-format DSLR, stunning timelapse videos are made possible with the D7200. With its ability to ensure smooth exposure variations during time-lapse and interval-timer photography, photographers can also film scenes where light conditions change vastly such as twilight evenings and breath-taking dusk scenes, with minimal disruption to video and image quality.
Choose to capture video on a DX-based movie format, similar to that of a super-35 format movie film, or experience up-close action in extreme sports with a favourite telephoto zoom lens and the 1.3x-based format image area. Full HD recording up to 1080/60p in 1.3x-based format, with minimal noise even at high ISO settings, is conceivable with the EXPEED 4 image-processing engine.Mode M provides Auto ISO sensitivity control during filming, allowing an automatic response for the appropriate exposure with sensitivity adjustments only while shutter speed and aperture values remain fixed. This intuitive technology allows photographers to shoot movies in a single shot even when moving from dark to bright areas.
The D7200 boasts additional handy features to simplify the movie-making process. To allow more time being focused on the subject instead, an independent menu dedicated for movies enables a more efficient configuration of settings for movie recording. The additional highlight display function provides further assistance by identifying potentially troublesome overblown highlights when recording. Improved audio performance is made available with wind noise reduction when the builtin stereo microphone is used, providing clear audio with less interference.
The D7200 is readily compatible with Nikon’s Creative Lighting System. Photographers can enjoy even greater creative control with a diverse range of flexible flash and lighting options to suit any occasion. Discover a readily comprehensive system to support a great photoshoot with free Nikon software, from the new ViewNX-i for convenient browsing of stills and movie files, and even uploading onto social media networks, to its bundled ViewNX-Movie Editor with features to convert, create and edit movies. The Capture NX-D also allows photographers to compare images pre-and postediting, adjust exposure, white balance and picture tones, and customise Picture Control for seamless end-to-end image management.
