Nikon® D7200 Addendum

All right, so nikon has just brought out the nikon d seventy two hundred and they didn't make too many changes to it, so I wanted to bring all the users of the d seventy two hundred camera up to date with what's different about that camera vs the d seventy one hundred, which my class was originally designed for. So when it comes to the d seventy two hundred, as I say there are a few subtle small changes in here, the difference is they put a new processor in the camera that processes thie image and this has zero impact on you until you actually start shooting pictures. And what does this mean in the real world? Well, it means that the a buffer how many pictures you can shoot immediately to the camera has gone up quite a bit they've increased it by about three times the size. This was one of the very few complaints about the d seventy one hundred because while it could shoot reasonably quick, the buffer filled up and you weren't able to shoot very many pictures they've now increased that...

quite a bit up to eighteen to twenty seven raw images depending on whether you've chosen twelve or fourteen bit raw and in my class as you've probably already seen, I recommend the twelve it, which means you're going to be able to get twenty seven photos in raw in the buffer rate straight away if you're shooting j pegs you'll be able to shoot all the way up to one hundred j pegs in around when it comes to the autofocus system they put on a new, more advanced focusing system that may help you're focusing in some general situations the one clear area where it has gotten in a little bit better is under extremely low light conditions it now works down to minus three evey which is a very low light situation and so it's going to be a little bit better under a low light other than that the differences will be very subtle in the focusing looking around the camera's faras the other things that are going on the top so has been relabeled and changed a little bit the seventy one hundred went from is a one hundred sixty four hundred but you had the high ups twelve thousand and twenty five thousand so you had arranged between one hundred twenty five thousand and they basically just re label that on the seventy two, two hundred so it does the exact same thing and it should be about the same quality. What is different is on the seventy two hundreds they've added two more settings on top of that fifty one thousand and one hundred thousand but these are black and white on ly modes and obviously these are going to be fairly low quality modes being that high of eso on they are a little bit limited, so it does essentially have the same basic settings and you're likely to get virtually exactly the same image quality when it comes to using the two cameras compared to each other. One substantial new feature is that they have added wifi onto the camera. This is the ability for you to communicate between your camera and a smart device perhaps your smartphone for ap oops! The steps that you'll need to do is first goethe to a nikon wifi app and you need to download this from your local app store you need to turn on the wifi function in your camera then you need to go to your phone, turn on the wifi signal that it sees coming from the nikon camera and then go to your phone and turn on the application you will be able to shoot you'll be able to see what the camera sees and you were able to do that from a distance of probably about fifty feet. You can view the images on your camera from your phone and you can download images to your phone so that you could upload up to social sites or email them to anybody from your phone and so it's a very handy little device and very cool it's not the most sophisticated wifi system out there, but that does mean it's actually pretty easy to use, which is nice to know as we look around the camera, there is another little new logo over on the right hand side that is the nfc logo. This is the near field communication, which allows you to do to do tap transfers, which is related to the wifi function. This is a very close proximity you need to have your smartphone or tablet about four inches or less away from the camera, so if you get very close, you'll be able to do transfers of your images from your from your camera to your phone or tablet device. Battery life has also increased in this case, it's gone from about nine hundred fifty shots to eleven hundred ten shots. I don't really know how they did it, but they did increase the battery life by just a little bit. You'll find a few other small differences as you go through the camera. For instance, bracketing used to have a limit of five frames. It will now do nine frames of bracket. If you go into the flat into the picture control, there is a new flat option. This is very popular with people shooting video who are wanting to do their color grading or their color adjustments in the post production phase in the video editing pace, and they get a very, very plain. Looking video out of their camera, but they can have their color and their contrast later on. And so if you do a lot of video shooting, you might want to look into using that new flat picture mode with the seventy, two hundred. They've also added, in the option of shooting sixty frames per second video. However, the catch is is that you can on ly use it when you're using the one point, three crop mode on the camera. And so, if you're trying to get that extra telephoto reach, you'll be able to use it. But you won't be able to use it most of the other time and those of the small differences between the seventy one and seventy, two hundred. And so, if you do have the seventy, two hundred, you are now fully up to date on how to use your camera, and I say, get out there and go enjoy that camera and thanks a lot for taking the class.
