At times it can seem DSLR-makers only add features when they need to, but the Nikon D7200 has fairly up-to-date wireless connectivity. It has Wi-Fi, and NFC to make pairing with compatible phones that bit easier.
Cameras like the Nikon D7200 are not intended to lure you in with flashy extras, though, or to provide the sort of speed pro action shooters are after. Instead, you get solid everyday speed that actually falls slightly below several rival CSCs at the price, at this point.
The software side of the Nikon D7200 Wi-Fi also wipes the floor with that of most other manufacturers. As well as transferring images and controlling the shutter remotely, you can alter camera settings like aperture, shutter speed and ISO from your mobile phone or tablet. Not bad, right?
There’s also a small pop-up flash, again giving you a sense of having all you need to get on with, adding to the Nikon D7200’s accessibility.
What is the Nikon D7200?
The Nikon D7200 is a DSLR that, while not bottom-rung like the EOS 1200D, is reasonably affordable, and offers simple operation that’ll appeal to those who don’t want to get knee-deep into the manual side of photography. It gets you the DSLR benefits of lens choice and good image quality, without the daunting learning curve.
The DIGIC 6 processor lets you shoot at 5fps, which has become the bog-standard speed level for any self-respecting everyday DSLR. It’s the same speed as the 700D too. What has changed, though, is the buffer. The 8-frame RAW file limit may not sound impressive, but being able to shoot up to 940 JPEGs in burst does.
