The D7200 at a glance

NPhoto - - Gear Zone -

Sub-com­mand dial

Used for var­i­ous func­tions as well as set­ting the aper­ture of mounted lenses, the sub-com­mand dial is com­mon to all cam­eras in this group apart from the D5500.

Pv and Fn but­tons

Typ­i­cal of Nikon’s tai­lored ap­proach to cam­era con­trol, the ac­tions of the depth of field preview and func­tion but­tons are cus­tomis­able.


Char­ac­ters on the info LCD are large and easy to read, although the in­for­ma­tion dis­played is rel­a­tively lim­ited.

Mode dial

The shoot­ing mode dial, with its Scene and Ef­fects set­tings, plus two user-de­fined po­si­tions, is iden­ti­cal to that on the D750.


It’s a high-qual­ity pen­taprism viewfinder with 100 per cent frame cov­er­age, but the view still looks a bit cramped com­pared with what you get on FX-for­mat bod­ies.

Left-hand but­tons

The but­tons down the left-hand side have dual func­tions for use in shoot­ing and play­back modes. Again, they’re iden­ti­cal to those found on the D750.

AF mode but­ton

A com­mon fea­ture on most re­cent Nikon SLRs, the AF mode but­ton works in con­junc­tion with the main and sub­com­mand di­als.

Re­store de­faults

As with the D610 and D750, the ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion but­ton can be used in con­junc­tion with the ISO but­ton to re­store de­fault cam­era set­tings if needed.

Info and i but­tons

Like all but the D610, the D7200 has sep­a­rate Info and i but­tons, for view­ing in­for­ma­tion and chang­ing pa­ram­e­ters re­spec­tively.
