New D7200 – Nikon’s first 24.2 Megapixel DSLR with built-in WiFi and NFC
During last month, Nikon announced a couple of DSLRs, and that strongly hints how company wants to keep rolling out new models with a couple of modifications or upgrades. Pixel upgrade is a good temptation for amateurs, so Nikon has stepped a litter higher with upgrading to a 24.2 megapixel DX CMOS sensor in its new Nikon D7200, a successor of D7100.
Nikon had introduced the D5500 and D810A last a couple weeks ago, and the newest entry is Nikon D7200. It’s the first model from Nikon to include built-in Wi-Fi and NFC. Nikon had provided Wi-Fi facility with its earlier models as well; however, in all those cases an external plug-in Wi-Fi device was required. Now, with built-in WiFi and NFC, one can share and transfer images and videos wirelessly to Android devices running on Android Ice Cream Sandwich or higher version.
User can even control the shutter button with their tablets or phones. Also, any Android device can work as a monitor for users. There is no need to include an external remote trigger. While most of us will expect it to have gained weight with built-in WiFi, it’s actually lighter than other models.
If we take a look at the specifications, then there isn’t much upgrades and the new model is identical to its predecessor in including the design. It features the same dual SD card slots, same 3.2 –inch screen, video recording at 1080p resolution, and autofocus as in Nikon D7100.
Other than 24.2 megapixel CMOS image sensor, Nikon D7200 features upgraded exceed 4 image processor, which is 30% faster. The ISO range is 100-25,600 and the battery back-up is litter higher at 1,110 shots as compared to 950 shots of its predecessor. The frame rate (24 frames per second) in bust mode remains the same as well. Nikon will make D7200 available in market anytime in April, and will cost $1,199.95 if you buy the body kit only, while with an 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens, the price tag will be $1,699.99.
