Nikon has been renowned for being among the best makers of cameras. Their cameras compete favorably with most of the high profile makers of cameras that are currently available today. In particular, they are able to compete favorably with Sony and Canon two giants of the camera making industry. Every year, Nikon brings to light a new camera brand which comes to replace the older version and to dismiss the misery left behind by the predecessor. Nikon’s SLR series have been around for a great deal of time. Ever since they came on board, they have been able to provide the best camera performance that any camera can offer. Nikon’s cameras first hit the scene in the late 1950s. Since then, they have continued to advance in various areas including performance and ease of use. The current Nikon SLR is the one which hit the scene in the year 2015, the Nikon D7200. Much of the attention of this review will be focused on this device because it is the current stronghold of Nikon’s camera market.
Compared to other versions
In general, there are very few variations among the current and the last two versions of the Nikon SLRs. This is mainly because Nikon made very few changes to the current one and the one which preceded it. But, Nikon claims that there are a few differences that the users can easily notice. For example, the D7200 and the D7100 both appear the same. However, Nikon claims that the D7200 does not come with the anti-alias filter sensor for purposes of enhancing sharpness. Similarly, there is little difference between the D7100 and the D7000. However, they have different viewfinder colors. On the other hand, the newer versions cost more than their previous versions.
What is really new; if there is any?
It is time to check whether the D7200 actually has anything new that should make it different from its predecessor. The new features are the new picture control option, time lapse movies and NFC Wi-Fi.
Currently, the D7200 sells alongside the predecessor versions. However, it is more prevalent than its previous versions as more retail stores try to increase sales.
