Nikon D7200 Review
Nikon obviously wanted to impress the enthusiastic photographer with its upgrade on the Nikon D7100. However, they didn’t really get to the finer details. The new buyers would like this new beast but I doubt an owner of the Nikon D7100 would like to spend on the Nikon D7200. The Nikon D7200 is still packed with great features so don’t give up on it yet. Its weather proof body allows you to shoot outdoors without any inconveniences and the image quality is good enough for a serious photographer. Nikon also included a faster and advanced AF system.
As you would expect, there are a couple of things that you will need to forgo such as a tilting screen. You will also miss out on the new Nikon’s ergonomic improvements. With that out of the way, let’s see what this beast that comes with a 24.2 MP APS-C sensor has to offer.
First of all, Nikon made it clear that you won’t be breaking the bank with this new DSLR. Despite the price, the guys over there at the Nikon headquarters also borrowed a few features from the high end Nikon D810. It isn’t as cheap as you would think but it’s well nearly half the price of the D810.Nikon had to compromise on the sensor to bring the price down. Nevertheless you won’t be worrying about that if you are looking for some good quality images at the given price.
The Nikon D7200’s body line is almost the same as its predecessor the Nikon D7100. You will be missing out on the new style that Nikon has been using for its cameras. However, you won’t be having much of a problem if you haven’t come across a camera that has the new style. In this regard, ignorance is bliss. This means that the D7200 is still good, but there is something better in the market if handling is one of your top priorities.
However, there is more to enjoy on the Nikon D7200 when it comes to hardware. The weatherproof body makes it a good camera for outdoor shooting. It comes with a polycarbonate front and a magnesium alloy body, something you would expect in high end cameras. Nikon should have considered the design improvements seen in the D750. Connectivity is something that Nikon had to consider with this new upgrade. They added Wi-Fi and NFC, something that other manufacturers keep on forgetting.
Nikon also improved the D7200’s performance by replacing the Expeed 3 processor found in its predecessor to the new Expeed 4 brain. When it comes to image quality, only the Samsung NX1 beats it with its 28 MP sensor. All in all, the Nikon D7200 won’t give you a ‘wow’ experience if you already own the Nikon D7100 but if you are a new buyer, this is just something that you need to buy. Apart from the high image quality and an excellent AF system, a weatherproof body is a plus. Enthusiastic nature photographers should consider this beast if at all they don’t own a D7100.
