Im­age sen­sor and pro­cess­ing

The per­for­mance of the 24.2-megapixel im­age sen­sor and newer-gen­er­a­tion EX­PEED 4 im­age pro­ces­sor rep­re­sent big im­prove­ments on the pre­ced­ing D7100. The stan­dard sen­si­tiv­ity range is also greater, at ISO100-25600.

Aut­o­fo­cus

The new-gen­er­a­tion Multi-CAM 3500DX II aut­o­fo­cus mod­ule is bet­ter able to per­form in near-dark­ness (-3EV) while serv­ing up 51 AF points (15 cross-type). The cen­tral AF point en­ables aut­o­fo­cus with lens/tele­con­verter com­bi­na­tions that have a widest aper­ture of f/8.

Con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing

The six-frames-per-sec­ond max­i­mum burst rate in­creases to seven frames per sec­ond in 1.3x crop mode (lack­ing in the older D7100). The mem­ory buf­fer is also much larger, with space for 18 to 35 RAW files, whereas the D7100 only had room for six to nine RAW files.

Me­ter­ing sen­sor

In our tests, the D7200’s me­ter­ing proved more con­sis­tent than that of both the D5500 and D610, de­spite the fact that it uses the same 2016-pixel 3D Colour Ma­trix II me­ter­ing mod­ule. The ma­trix me­ter­ing mode works par­tic­u­larly well, even in re­ally tricky light­ing con­di­tions.

Con­struc­tion

More up­mar­ket than the D5500, the D7200’s body shell is mostly con­structed from mag­ne­sium al­loy, although the front panel is poly­car­bon­ate. The D7200 is weather sealed for greater en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion, at least when us­ing sim­i­larly weather-sealed lenses.

Need to know

More sporty than the D5500, the D7200 fea­tures a faster max­i­mum burst rate, and a faster max­i­mum shut­ter speed of 1/8000 sec (matched only by the D810 in this test group). While the D5500 and D750 have built-in Wi-Fi, the D7200 also has NFC (Near Field Com­mu­ni­ca­tion).
