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.
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.
The video takes can be seen, making use of the 2 SD card slots or through the HDMI port.
A “flat” mode within the Picture Control options should ease post production and the new optional ME-W1 wireless microphone improves the sound alternatives.
We will miss the articulated display, even though the new one is 3.2”or 8cm and has 1,229,000 resolution points.
The AF Multi_CAM 3500 II system operates on a total of 51 points, from which 15 centrals are set in a cross shape and the one in the middle is operative up to f/8, allowing some operability, with somewhat exotic objectives and teleconverters. It has a -3 EV sensibility, which is not bad.
Regarding the new Nikon D7200, besides the “DX”objectiveswith circle coverage for APS-C (1.5x factor), the “FX” with circle coverage for 24 x 36.
As for the energy management, it’s said it had a good performance: up to 1,110 photograms and 80 minute video recordings per EN-EL15 battery charge according to CIPA standards.
