Better, buffer: Nikon D7200 First Impressions Review posted

dpreview News - Mon, 2015-03-02 04:00

Nikon's D7200 has some big shoes to fill. The D7100 was one of our favorite midrange DSLRs of the past few years, and though it's by no means a radical upgrade, the D7200 presents some notable new features. It has a 24.2MP CMOS sensor with no optical low-pass filter, an updated 51-point AF system sensitive to -3EV, a much larger buffer that can take up to 27 Raw images at 6 fps, and Wi-Fi with NFC. Read more

Hands-on with Nikon D7200

dpreview News - Mon, 2015-03-02 04:00

Nikon's new D7200 is an evolutionary upgrade to the D7100, and fixes one of the few major complaints about that model with an increased buffer depth. Other improvements are more subtle, but the addition of -3EV sensitivity to the D7200's 51-point AF array will please low-light photographers. There's also Wi-Fi with NFC, 1080/60p video, and improved battery life. Click through for some hands-on images

Nikon D7200 boasts low-light AF improvements and increased buffer depth

Nikon's prosumer line gets an update today in the form of the D7200. With a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor it offers a very slight resolution increase over its 24.1MP D7100 predecessor, and like that model it lacks an optical low-pass filter. But the D7200's primary enhancements include a next-generation 51-point AF module with increased low-light sensitivity, built-in Wi-Fi with NFC and an improved 100-shot buffer depth when shooting JPEGs or Raw files at 6 fps. Read more
