The D7200 is the new kid on the block for Nikon’s DX-format line-up. Whether you’re a diehard photographer or videographer looking for a tool to ignite your creativity, a pro in need of a nimble second camera or someone looking for an ideal blend of versatility and convenience, the Nikon D7200 is ready for your desires.
With a dust-and-weather sealed body, the Nikon D7200 retains much the same image sensor as featured in the D7100, although its pixel counts do differ ever so slightly thanks to slight adjustments in sensor masking. But while the sensor is unchanged, the processor isn’t. It’s now comes with an EXPEED 4-class chip, rather than the previous-generation EXPEED 3.
Although it’s a new processor, performance in terms of frame rate is unchanged from the earlier camera. Nikon-rated six frames per second in the full DX-format, or seven frames per second with a 1.3x focal length crop beyond that already applied in an APS-C camera body. One area in which the next-gen processor looks to have paid dividends, though, is power consumption: CIPA-compliant battery life figures have improved by around 16% since the D7100, for a total of around 1,100 shots on a charge with the exact same battery as used before.
