For the first time, the exhilarating image quality, low-light capabilities and speed of a Nikon DSLR are available with the convenience of built-in Wi-Fi® and Near Field Communication (NFC)**. Introducing the D7200, the new star of Nikon’s DX-format camera line-up. Bring your creative vision to life with photos and videos that shine with sharpness and clarity. Shoot in nearly any light—from dawn until after dusk—and capture everything from sports and action to wildlife and everyday moments. Then share your beautiful images easier than ever with a compatible smart device. Whether you’re a passionate photographer or videographer looking for a tool to ignite your creativity, a pro in need of a nimble second camera or someone looking for an ideal blend of versatility and convenience, the D7200 is ready for your challenge.
DPReview tagged along with pro photographer Gabe Bienczycki on a desert photo shoot to push the D7200 to its limits. A Los Angeles resident, Gabe is a former ballet dancer who now works as a filmmaker and a stills photographer. Joined by DPR Editor Barney Britton and a great deal of sunscreen, Gabe tests the tracking focus, low light and video capabilities of the D7200 as they photograph a pair of dancers on a scorching day in the desert outside of LA. Watch to see how the D7200 performed in their field test.
Free of an optical low-pass filter, the D7200 produces remarkably pure, sharp photos and videos. Its 24.2 MP DX-format CMOS image sensor works together with EXPEED 4 image processing and NIKKOR lenses to enhance detail and tonality. This outstanding image quality is maintained all the way up to ISO 25,600 (two full stops higher than the D7200’s predecessor) for amazing low-light images. You can also now expand the ISO range up to BW1 (51,200) and BW2 (102,400) to shoot monochromatic photos in even more challenging lighting situations. Whether shooting stills or video, selecting the 1.3x crop mode extends the reach of NIKKOR DX and FX-format lenses, getting you closer to sports, action, wildlife and more.
Share your outstanding photos with no hassle, even when on the go using the D7200’s built-in Wi-Fi and NFC. Just touch your compatible smartphone or tablet± with NFC to the D7200 to establish a Wi-Fi connection. Once connected, you can use your smart device to browse photos on the D7200 and then share your favorites by text message, email or posting online. You can also use your smart device as a remote for the D7200—see what the camera sees and take pictures!
With its 6 fps* continuous shooting capacity, the D7200 is an outstanding choice for sports, wildlife and other fast action. It has a large buffer capacity that can handle up to approx. 100 shots of continuous shooting when in JPEG/fine/large; up to approx. 27 shots in 12-bit lossless compressed RAW or up to approx. 18 shots when using 14-bit lossless compressed RAW and DX-format image size. Switch to 1.3x image size and capture approx. 7 fps* in continuous high-speed mode.
Record daily life in stunning quality or experiment with new forms of creative expression. Create beautifully rendered time-lapse movies with smooth exposure variations entirely in-camera—a first for Nikon DX-format cameras. Make smooth exposure transitions with Auto ISO while monitoring with Highlight Display (Zebra Stripes). Apply Flat Picture Control for easier color grading in post. Transfer uncompressed footage onto an external recorder with the optional HC-E1 HDMI Cable while recording simultaneously to the internal SD memory card. Use the optional ME-W1 Wireless Microphone and record clear monaural audio from subjects as far as 164ft/50m away, or attach the optional ME-1 Stereo Microphone to the ME-W1 Wireless Microphone’s remote unit for stereo recording.
Whether you’re capturing images in daylight or after dusk, the D7200’s superb AF system will keep up. Its Advanced Multi-CAM 3500 II autofocus sensor module achieves outstanding focus detection, even at a very dim -3 EV (ISO 100, 20ºC/68ºF). Its high-density 51 focus points cover a wide area of the frame in DX format and most of the frame in 1.3x Crop Mode, while 15 cross-type sensors in the center provide higher detection strength. One center AF point even works all the way to f/8, for greater focusing performance when using teleconverters.
