The D7200 at a glance
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.
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.
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.
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.
