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.
*When using live view, the maximum frame rate will be approx. 3.7 fps.
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.
Create dazzling artistic images right in the camera. The D7200 includes auto bracketing up to 9 frames and built-in HDR for creating images with stunning dynamic range. Next-generation Picture Controls make it easy to alter the characteristics of your images, and a collection of outstanding Image Effects can be applied to both photos and videos in real time. Preserve the details in highlights and shadows, even when the scene includes moving subjects, with Active D-Lighting, and set white balance simply by selecting the area of the frame that should be white.
The D7200 can be the centerpiece of your photography system for many years. The D7200's built-in flash can wirelessly trigger and control remote Speedlights with i-TTL communication in Commander Mode. Streamline your workflow with high-speed data transfers using the optional UT-1 Communication Unit for wired LAN connection, or wirelessly connect to an FTP server or computer with the UT-1 with the optional WT-5A/B/C/D. Add Nikon's optional Camera Control Pro 2 software to control the D7200 from a computer. The energy efficient EN-EL15 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery delivers approx. 1,110 images* and approx. 80 minutes* of video. The optional MB-D15 battery pack/grip adds greater comfort, and a growing collection of accessories expands your creativity capabilities.
