Nikon D7100 vs D7200, what’s the difference?

In the past two months, Nikon did not release its own popular new products in this important exhibition CP +, it just launched the SLR camera the D810A for the special use of astrophotography, from average consumers’ point of view, this new product is the one that almost no one pays attention to. But today, just a month later, Nikon suddenly launches the D7200, the new generation of the D7100. I wonder whether the sudden release of the upgraded version after only one year will bring us more surprises, unfortunately, the Nikon D7200 rarely has something new in its specification table, it is not because the Nikon D7200’s upgrading is not forceful, but many of its upgraded points have appeared on other products too, so it has few original new points.

Nikon D7200

Compared to the D7100, the Nikon D7200 does have improvements in many functions, but the new features are too familiar. The EXPEED 4 processor is the standard configuration of the Nikon SLR, what’s more, the functionality of WiFi and NFC are already popular features, the “flat” mode and functions for recording sound with movies have appeared in many new products, the increase in the frames of continuous shooting and strengthening of the battery life are something that every user knows. The highlight of the new product is the new time-lapse feature with smooth exposure transitions in video shooting, which makes the exposure value of interval shooting more stable, and sudden changes impossible. This is a new feature which was not launched in the past.

Nikon D5300 vs D5500 vs D3300, what’s the difference?

The Nikon D5500 is the successor to the Nikon D5300. Although it is directly designated as ‘D5500’, skipping the intermediate ‘D5400’, we can find in it only ‘tiny differences’from D5300.

New in the Nikon D5500:

Although at this point touch screens are not a novelty among digital cameras, the Nikon D5500 has just become the first reflex camera from the company in adopting this feature. It is one of the main novelties of a SLR camera that takes over the D5300, inheriting its APS-C size CMOS with 24 megapixel resolution and a low-pass filter.

Nikon D5500

The wifi conection premiered already by the D5300, also mentioned in the Nikon reflex catalog, is again present on its successor, whose monitor becomes the main thing of this renewal. An articulated touch screen that grows in size up to 3.2 inches and has a resolution over 1 million points.

The Expeed 4 processor remains untouched from the previous version, and so is the burst with up to 5 frams per second with a maximum Native sensibility ISO 25,600. Nikon promises an optimized performance in terms of noise control.

Nikon D5300 vs D5500 vs D7200 comparison, Which one is worth buying?

In the past three months, Nikon continuously released two SLR cameras: the entry-level camera the D5500, and the high-end ASP-C camera the D7200. Comparing the D7200 and the D7100, we can know the D7200 has improved a lot, but it lacks surprises. With the new sensor and processor, its picture quality improves in some way compared with the D7100, the increase of Wi-Fi module can solve the problem of the buffer that people have criticized for long, so it can be regarded as the best DX camera currently. Needlessly to say, the D7200 is more powerful than the latest entry-level D5500, but there is a 400-dollar gap between them, my suggestion is, if the D5500 can meet your needs, you don’t have to spend $ 400 more to choose the D7200, you can get better effects if you spend the money saved on better lenses. Here I will introduce the difference between the D5300, D5500 and D7200 to help you how to choose them:

Body.

Since they are user-oriented, the three cameras have a big difference in structure, The D5300 is constructed with carbon fiber reinforced plastic material, the D5500 uses Carbon-fiber composite material, while remaining sturdy, it is even lighter, While the d7200 is weather sealed and uses magnesium alloy on the top and the back shell of the camera in order to meet the needs of the special environment, firm, dust-proof and water-proof;Due to the use of composite materials and relatively smaller design, also uses a smaller battery, the D5500 is the lightest with its weight of 420g compared with the D7200’s weight of 675g and D5300’s weight of 480g.

Nikon D7200 – A very evolved DX Format camera

Nikon presents its new D7200, perhaps the most advanced of its “DX”, with a clear nod for those who –within the APS-C options from the firm –wish to have more flexibility to record videos and good connectivity.

This way, the D7200 offers NFC (Near Field Communication), Wi-Fi, 25p/30p Full HD video modes and –in trim mode –1080/50p/60p. A specific menu for videos is added, which allowsto concentrate all the settings for this option in a single place.

Nikon D7200

As for image registry, a 24.2 megapixel APS-C sensor (10-25,600 ISO) is used. Also a EXPEED 4 processor and a generous buffer memory which allows to take 6 fps pictures in DX format and 7fps in 1.3x crop mode up to 100 frames in JPG or 27 RAW in 12 bits.

Best lens for Nikon D7200

Photography for beginners: DX format lens

Although considered an SLR camera in the top-end flagship class, Nikon D7200 is still an APS-C, using a DX format lens which features both high-quality and affordability, so it is well attuned to family users in the group of new-comers to photography who have no intent to upgrade to Full frame camera.

16-85mm or 18-140mm Kit lens

As a necessary tool for this group of users, Kit lens has a frequently and widely used Zoom range, and one lens of this type, Nikon AF-S DX 16-85mm F3.5-5.6G IF-ED VR, is a DX format lens for daily applications, offering good capability that can even match Nikon “gold ring quality”effect to some extent, and has a very good imaging quality in the Nikon Kit lens family. With an equivalent focal length of 24-127.5mm, it can take large-scene landscape photos in the wide-angle end as well as distant-view pictures in the Telephoto end.

Leica: is there anyone reasonable left?

Leica Camera AG, collaborating with Lenny Kravitz (*) has perpetrated a “Correspondent” version from an honored Leica M-P.

This is a limited series of 125 sets or copies of briefcases that will contain a body of the camera cited, a Summicron-M 35 mm f/2 Asph. and a Summilux-M 50 mm f/1,4 Asph. and will be sold for the price of 22.500 € –including a book– in Leica boutiques.

And I say “perpetrated” because each of those camera bodies and objectives, originally black-lacquered, has been “artificially aged,in a differed way for each of the 125 sets.

Leica

The idea would be to try to offer the set an aspect similar to that of an original camera that has experienced natural wear after years of usage from a correspondent or a photojournalist.

Nikon Coolpix S33 and AW130: prepared for adventure

Thinking about novelties to enjoy our free time, Nikon has renewed their best compact cameras. Among these new Coolpix we’re going to take a look at two of them in particular. The Coolpix S33 and the Coolpix AW130. The two cameras are very robust and prepared for war, although there are some differences between them. Let’s take a look.

The Nikon Coolpix S33 is the simplest one, and maybe thought for those who are going to have their first compact camera, for the youngest. What catches our attention about this camera is that it’s shock resistant for drops of up to 1.5m of height, resists temperatures of 10°C and dust. According to Nikon, you can also swim with it and submerge it to up to 10 meters, where it also has underwater face detector.

Nikon Coolpix S33 and AW130

In terms of technical features, it has a CMOS sensor of 13 megapixels. It has a direct button for recording and Full HD resolution. The zoom is 3x and thanks to Dynamic Fine Zoom, it can be multiplied to 6x. Besides all that, it’s a very light camera, it weighs about 180g. As it’s a familiar, simple and fun camera, it has several scene modes that will save a lot of complications and it’s available in different colors: blue, yellow, white, or magenta.

Nikon Coolpix S33 and AW130

The Nikon Coolpix AW130 is another thing. What we like about this camera is that wide-angle lens of 23mm and f/2.8. It’s very bright and won’t let you down when filming night landscapes or underwater shots. It can be submerged to up to 30 meters, which means you can dive with it without an additional underwater housing. It can also detect faces underwater and can be dropped from two meters of height. Something else about S33. Besides being sealed against dust, and beach sand, take it into account, it also resists temperatures below zero, and as low as -10°C.

Nikon Coolpix S33 and AW130

It has a CMOS sensor of 16mp, and it’s thought to be used with social networks, it’s compatible with NFC and has WiFi connection. This time the zoom is 5x and allows to capture images of up to 10x, with the same system as the previous one. It’s great because you can save geolocation data thanks to the compatibility of integrated GPS/GLONASS/QZSS systems. You can register travel routes and save locations. Up to 30 locations in a world map that’s integrated in the camera. And altitude or depth data can be printed.

It has high performance vibration reduction, VR, which will be very useful when using zoom. Besides, you record everything in Full HD. You see, the two cameras are very complete and are prepared for almost anything. Don’t forget to take it on your next adventure.

Nikon conceives a D810A for astronomical photography

Beyond the manual modifications that some users do on their own in cameras, till now, Canon had been one of the few manufacturers that had launched special version of their SLR, tailored to the needs of astronomical photography. Now its Nikon’s turn, that with the recently announced D810A has penetrated in this niche with its champion full frame sensor with 36 million points of D810.

Nikon D810A

As it always occurs in these versions, the key is in the infrared filter supplied in the digital sensors. These way, the D810A comes with a new modified filter version in order to achieve, according to the company, a camera four times more sensitive to the H-alfa spectral line and therefore able to photograph the red from the nebulae.

Pentax K-S2, the lightest SLR

Nothing better than an original product in order to face a saturated market such as photography. After the “experiment” that led to the Pentax K-S1, Ricoh has just introduced the smallest water and dust resistant SLR – their new Pentax K-S2. Fantastic design, remarkable spec and an excellent connectivity with enough arguments to succeed.

Pentax K-S2

The new Pentax K-S2 comes with a compact body (122, 5 x 91 x 72, 5 mm, 678 grams of weight) and a 100 point seal to ensure the protection of the internal components. The camera features a 20 megapixel CMOS sensor, and it comes without a low-pass filter (incorporates a sophisticated system in order to avoid the moiré effect). Offers an 11 point focus system (9 arranged crosswise) and allows to work between ISO 100 and 51.200.
