Nikon’s de­liv­ered a great all-rounder

NPhoto - - Test Team -

Although this may not be a com­plete over­haul, what Nikon has done has tweaked an al­ready great cam­era to pro­duce some­thing which is even bet­ter than its pre­de­ces­sor. It makes for a great all-rounder, which pro­duces images which are very sharp and de­tailed with a pleas­ing de­gree of sat­u­ra­tion and vi­brance.

While it would have been nice to see an articulating, or per­haps even touch-sen­si­tive screen on the back, as we have on the D5500, on the plus side it’s great to have a 100 per cent viewfinder. Built-in Wi-Fi mak­ing an ap­pear­ance is also use­ful, if a lit­tle re­stricted by the limited app which ac­com­pa­nies it.

The new Ex­peed 4 pro­ces­sor fixes the is­sue of the burst depth, mak­ing it more use­ful than be­fore if you’re shoot­ing fast-mov­ing sub­jects. The han­dling of the cam­era also re­mains great, with a high-qual­ity feel you might oth­er­wise ex­pect from some­thing which sits at the top of Nikon’s range, rather than in the mid­dle.
