Featuring Nikon D7200
The D7000 lineup of Nikon are enthusiast level cameras, and the latest family member is the D7200. The previous model before its release was the D7100 and this new model does feature significant improvements over its predecessor, chief of which is the ability to perform better in low-light situations. Apart from improvements, certain additions such as WiFi and NFC included in the mix. As such, you can call the Nikon D7200 a camera that provides connectivity with your mobile devices.
In terms of looks, the D7200 pretty much resembles the D7100; their similarities even extend to their size and weight. Some features such as dual SD card slots and a 51-point autofocus system are still in place.
It’s internally and in the parts where most of the changes were made. The Nikon D7200’s sensor is about 0.1 MP higher than what the D7100 was capable of: 24.2MP. While some may not be too impressed with such an enhancement, the slight bump in MP did increase the ISO sensitivity range of the camera – good news for those who like shooting in low-light conditions. The highest ISO the D7100 can go to is 25,600 while the D7200 is capable of shooting all the way up to 102,400.
There are also minor updates to video shooting: 1080p at 60fps.
All in all, the Nikon D7200 is very much like the D7100 except for the fact that it is much improved when it comes to low-light performance, has a longer battery life and comes with integrated WiFi/NFC.
Much like other cameras in the market these days, the D7200 comes with WiFi connectivity that allows you to connect to a mobile device. You can even remotely control the camera through the Nikon WMU app. Things you can do with the app include triggering the camera shutter and viewing pictures stored in the SD card.
Of course, with WiFi connectivity comes sharing. Those who can’t wait to share their shots with friends, family or their audience (for photographers and artists) can simply upload images to social networks with the camera.
iOS users who want to try this camera will be disappointed as NFC capability is only available for Android users.
There are times when photos just don’t come out right when shooting in low-light conditions – they are either too grainy, blurry or are just too noisy. But is problem is effectively addressed by the D7200.
The Nikon D7200 is very similar to the D7100 in terms of looks and capabilities save for a few additional features such as WiFi, higher ISO and NFC. Basically, the factors you need to consider when opting to buy this camera is whether you need to shoot in low-light situations or not, as well as determine whether you require a higher ISO for every shot you take. In addition, you can also consider whether you want WiFi or NFC connectivity for your camera. Taking all these into consideration will help you decide whether you want to buy the D7200 or not.
