There has been a lot of anticipation and a lot of speculation floating around as to when Nikon would announce the D7200 and what kind of upgrades we would see from it’s predecessor, the D7100. Wait no longer, as Nikon just spilled the beans on it’s newest DSLR. The camera is expected to be available in early April with a MSRP is $1,200 USD for the body only or $1,700 USD with the 18-140mm f3.5-5.6 kit lens. Since I know you’re anxious to see what it all has to offer, let’s cut straight to the chase.

Specifications

Many of the improvements are incremental, such as the +0.1 MP  difference in sensor; however, some improvements are slightly more noteworthy. For example, the burst rate has drastically improved. The D7200 is capable of taking 18 14-bit RAW images, 27 12-bit RAW images, and 100 Normal quality JPEGs in burst mode. To compare those figures, the D7100 could only handle  only 7 12-bit RAW images and 33 JPEGS (at Normal quality) in burst mode.

The D7200 will have a framerate of 6 fps, with the option of 7 fps in 1.3x crop mode:

The D7200 also features built-in Wi-Fi and NFC, which Nikon Australia touts as a first for Nikon DSLRs. No more extra equipment (dongles) to buy and carry around. Additionally, the D7200 is equipped with the Expeed 4 processor which reportedly gives the camera a 30% improvement in terms of processing power. The ISO capabilities gained a few strides, too, as the D7200 can now reach an ISO of 25,600. H1 (51,200) and H2 ISO (102,400) settings are exclusively reserved to black and white photos.

Auto ISO support and Flat Picture Control has been added to video mode. I know a lot of folks were hoping for a manual aperture feature while in video mode, but unfortunately, we won’t be seeing it on the D7200. The new camera is capable of HD video of 1080 at 50 fps or 60 fps in 1.3 crop mode–still an improvement over the D7100 which could only record at 60fps at 720. The D7200 also welcomes an in camera timelapse option in addition to the interval shooting mode.

Many were also wishing for a touch screen and/or articulating screen, but the D7200 sees neither of them. Instead, it comes with a standard 3.2″  ultra high-resolution (1,229k dot) LCD screen.

    Wow the things I had hoped for most are not present. Mainly 4k and articulating screen. No reason for me to upgrade this year.

    I don’t understand why people are so in love with 4k at the current state of hardware. Most people just switched to1080p screens. 4k WILL come, but its not yet that important. Much more important would be the ability to film in RAW. The possibilties of Colorgrading with RAW-Footage are way higher then with this h.264-codec-crap ;-)

    The d7200 looks like a reasonable successor for the d7100. But the jump is in my opinion not that big, that people would switch from the d7100 to the d7200.

    By the way: I dont get why the highes ISO is important to anyone. The amount of Noise is important, but the HIGHEST ISO possible? Iso 12000 is already REALY ugly on a APSC… but 100.000 ???
