Darrel Young Mastering the Nikon D7200 Book
DxO measures Nikon D7200
According to DxOmark the Nikon D7200 is the best Aps-C Dslr currently on the market. The Dynamic range of 14.6 EV is unprecedented for an aps-c camera (as far as I know the Nikon D7000 was the best before with a 13.9 EV dynamic range). The high ISO score of 1333 is also the best for a Dx camera. The color depth is 24.5 bits. With these datas the Nikon d7200 is the 20th best camera on Dxos sensor list, Full frame models also included.
Nikon d7200 finally announced !
After a long wait Nikon announced the Nikon d7200 finally. Although at first it can seem as a similar camera, it looks a very serious competitor. The bigger buffer, native ISO range of 100-25,600 looks very promising. Two new sensitivities for Black and White Jpegs (Hi Bw1 51,200, Hi BW2 ISO 102,400), in camera timelapse video with expsure smoothing up to 9999 frames, clarity control for picture style, different parameters for video and photo looks it can be a very nice camera. Looking for one to have a complete review.
Key specs of the new Nikon d7200
Sensor: 24.2 Megapixel resolution 6000 x 4000 px
Nikon d7200 flash
Guide number: 12m ISO 100 ( 39.4′ )
Nikon d7200 video
In camera time lapse video with exposure smoothing, the Nikon D7100 was also made time lapse photos, but the new Nikon D7200 makes video from these photo in the camera, no information about the quality yet
Camera weight: 675g 23.8 oz.
In Budapest the price is a little high, but it is a very high performance camera.
Expeed 4 processing engine
No optical low pass filter
Dual sd card slots
2016 pixel RGB sensor
Built in Wifi and NFC connectivity (NFC is to control the camera from a smartphone)
In camera time lapse with exposure smoothing up to 9999 frames
Seems it will be a very capable camera.
The ship time is projected for end March 2015.
Is it worth to upgrade from the Nikon d7100 ?
Bigger buffer, better video and wider ISO range is the difference here. The build quality, resolution seems the same as the earlier model. The battery is also the same. The older Nikon D7100 still a wonderful camera.
Competition / rivals
The more expensive Canon 7d II has 10 fps burst mode and a better 65 cross type af system. According to me the picture quality of the Nikon is better, especially for landscapes, because the dynamic range of the Nikon is much better. The decision is more based on preferred system and available lenses in this case I think. We don’t have a review of the Canon yet.
Nikon d7200 release date
Nikon d7200 newest rumors / speculation
Newest information suggests that a Nikon D7200 will be a Mini Nikon D750 with a tilting LCD screen.
The speculation goes around the following specs:
– frame rate: 6 fps or can be higher like 8 fps or 10 fps, the newest Canon 7d Mk II can make 10 frames per second
– tiltable LCD: like the one in the Nikon D750
-autofocus system: the usual 51 / 15 point af system or can be a newer system with more af points or can be auto focusing up to f/10, current Nikon d7100 auto focusing up to f/8 this means if you put 2x teleconverter on the Nikon 300 f/4 it will be an autofocusing combination. With earlier cameras, usually autofocusing up to f/5.6 it is not possible.
– pixel count: the existing 24mp sensor or a newer unit, lot more pixels are quite challenging in different point of view and give little benefit according to my opinion
– buffer, how much frames is it possible to shoot. A burst of 5 seconds is quite good, this means 30 frames if we speak about Raw files at 6 frames / second rate.
– video functions, many people like to have high frame rate for smaller res videos ( it would be very interesting in wildlife photography for example ), or better video af system
– crop mode
Not so many rumors recently about the new Nikon d9300 camera which was rumored before as the new camera in the Nikon d300 line of cameras.
Nikon d7200 specs guess
Maximum res: 24 Megapixel the 24 megapixel seems the most obvious choice, but can be a big news if Nikon put more megapixels like 28 megapixel or more, but it is not very likely, for example Samsung plan to pack 28 Megapixel in the Nx 1
File sizes of the Nikon d7100
NEF:20-25 MB The camera already produce large files, if the resolution can be higher like 28 megapixel the file sizes can be even bigger
Sensor format: Aps-C No change expected
Video autofocus: there is an autofocus, but not really good, Panasonic, or Canon are better for video, even Canon 70d not the best a better video af would be useful, now most dslrs are usable only in manual mode
Nikon d7100 menus
-Playback good to have no change expected
Portrait, Landscape, Child, Sports, Close-up, Night portrait, Night landscape, Party/Indoor, Beach/Snow, Sunset, Dusk/Dawn, Pet portrait, Candlelight, Blossom, Autumn colours, Food probably something similar expected
– S (single frame), good to have no change expected
modes of remote control
three different modes:
Image sizes :6000*4000, 4496*3000, 2992*2000 Good functionality with reasonable amount of choices, can be lower resolution tough as well like 1600, 1200 or 800 pixels
Nikon d7200 release date
According to newest rumors the Nikon d7200 can come in the beginning of 2015. Unfortunately no news about the differences compare to the Nikon d7100 yet. Perhaps the announcements can happen this year.
The Photokina ended without the Nikon d7200 announcement. No news nowhere about the new Nikon d7200. Apart from the flip-out screen perhaps Nikon has not too much room for improvement. A new sensor would be little better in terms of ISO performance, and some improvement in video also possible.
Most likely the Nikon d7200 will be announced at Photokina international fair in Cologne, Germany between 16-21th of September. Some increase in high ISO performance is expected.
Nikon d7200 news
Seems the new Nikon d7200 wasn’t announced at Photokina, like the Canon 750d. There are lots of speculation in the background I guess, what to put in, regarding buffer which is wanted by many but seems Nikon wants (as Canon) to influence people to buy Full frame and spend more on lenses as well. Finally who knows perhaps the Nikon d400 come out for a galactic money (Canon style). If you have any idea or information you can share on the forum.
Nikon d9300 and Nikon d2300
Update: Everybody speak about a new Nikon d9300 now as a possible camera of the Nikon d300 line. No certainty though yet as it was not yet announced by Nikon. There are also rumors about a new Nikon d2300 as a small dslr camera like the Canon 100D.
The new Nikon d7200 release date has not known yet. No rush because seems the Nikon d7100 is the best Aps-C Dsrl today, which has not changed with the release of the new Canon 70d. No news about the long discussed Nikon d400 yet either, nobody knows it is ever going to be released. The only thing is perhaps missing in the Nikon d7100 in photographic side is the longer burst mode, compare to older semi professional models such as the Nikon d300/d300s. The build quality of the older Nikon d300 is also better than the new D7xxx line cameras. Perhaps Nikon like Canon wants to lead enthusiasts towards Full frame models. The video mode can also be improved, even the Canons newest dual pixel system is not as good as Panasonic’s for example.
Nikon d7200 release date
Some speculation that the Nikon d7200 comes for the Photokina (Cologne, 16-21 September, 2014 ), but no proof yet. More interesting what will be the changes. Nikon makes better and better sensors lately for Aps-C sized market, the new D3300 has a very good low light performance. It has a high ISO score of 1385 at Dxomark, which is much better than the score of the d7100(1256) or d7000(1167) or even the Full frame Canon 5d(1368), which is a serious achievement.
Nikon d7100 specifications
The detail of the Nikon d7100 is exceptional: the picture as it comes out of the camera, no sharpening or anything else: Nikon d7100 with Nikon 35 f1.8 ISO 400, this is not an original picture which is lot more sharper but it needed to resize to increase the download speed
Dxo lab measurements of the Nikon d7100:
Colour depth: 24,2 bits
Dynamic range: 13,7 EV
High iso: 1256
Sensor resolution: 24 Mpixel (6036×4020)
Weight:675 g (this is less compare to the Nikon d7000)
LCD resolution:1228 k Pixel
Exposure bracketing: +- 5EV in 1/3 or 1/2 EV increments
Frame rate: 6fps, 7 in crop mode
Number of autofocus points:51
Flipout LCD: No
What is going to change ?
According to me big changes in terms of sensor/resolution/dynamic range cannot be expected until Canon makes some serious competition, which seems not happen in the near future. I would be surprised if the New Canon 7d Mk II would be better than the Nikon d7100. The high iso performance will be better, as we see in other models. The Nikon D7100 is a fantastic camera: great resolution, a fantastic number of details, usable ISO range up to ISO 6400. Very good features, crop mode, 7fps continuous shooting, everything somebody can wish for. This camera is almost as good as a Full frame cameras, but with smaller sensor, and better price. Wish Canon has something with this quality, at this price point. The Full frame cameras are better in reality but the difference is not huge. One thing perhaps would be useful: flipout screen for videos and shooting at extreme angles.
Nikon d7xxx line chronology
Nikon d7200 ? Seems to come in 2015 at earliest
Nikon d7100 – 2013 The newer Nikon d7100 is even better than the already fantastic Nikon d7000. 8 extra megapixels, better high iso performance, low noise levels, with excellent resolution, little smaller and ligher than the Nikon d7000. On an absolute scale it is a fantastic camera as well regarding price per value. Huge dynamic range, lots of colors, good functionality, two dials, built in focus motor, lots of settings, HD video in high frame rates, only the flipout screen, and longer burst mode is missing.
Nikon d7000 -2010 The Nikon d7000 is fantastic camera, w ith high dynamic range, excellent high iso performance, two sd card slots, in camera focus motor, flash, interval timer shots, many functions. I like this camera very much.
Between the Nikon d7100 and the Nikon d7000 was three year difference, but now I think it won’t last so long to release the new Nikon d7200.
All of this cameras were a huge success in terms of quality, the only criticism was the limited buffer size.
