Nikon D7200: the DX-format D-SLR that’s ready to match your every ambition

Step up to excellence with the new Nikon D7200: the DX-format D-SLR that’s ready to match your every ambition

Nikon-D7200-DSLR

 

Nikon D7200 body only: £939.99 inc. VAT
Nikon D7200 body and 18-105 VR lens: £1,119.99 inc. VAT

Sales Start Date: 19th March 2015

London, UK, 2nd March 2015 Nikon today announces a new D-SLR to lead its range of DX-format cameras. Fast, versatile and fully connected, the sophisticated D7200 delivers sumptuous stills and outstanding video performance.

With a host of features inherited from Nikon’s renowned FX models, the D7200 has plenty to offer passionate photographers. This is a camera that’s ready to match the ambition of every photographer who wants to create exceptional images with a lightweight D-SLR system.

Nikon-D7200-DSLR-frontIn a first for a DX camera, the D7200 enables precise subject acquisition down to -3 EV, thanks to its autofocus system inherited from Nikon’s legendary professional cameras. Combined with the camera’s wide ISO range and fast burst rates, you can shoot sharp in the dark and achieve clear footage of night time video scenes. Functions that enable light trail photography and smooth time-lapse movies extend creative options, as does the extensive range of compatible DX and FX NIKKOR lenses. The D7200 is also the first Nikon D-SLR to support NFC (Near Field Communication). Now users can choose whether to transfer impressive stills to a smart device via NFC or the camera’s Wi-Fi function1. When it comes to movies, versatile video features and the camera’s lightweight DX body combine to make the D7200 a welcome addition to any production environment. A dedicated menu for movie settings, advanced options for audio control, and the latest generation of Picture Control settings allow superb flexibility. And the camera is compatible with Nikon’s new optional ME-W1 Wireless Microphone, which captures clear sound from up to 50m away.

Simon Iddon, Group Product Manager, D-SLR lenses and accessories, Nikon UK, says: “The D7200 is a class breed of camera that inspires excellence and creativity. Its advanced features make it an ideal camera for both experienced photographers and people looking to get started with a top-of-the range camera. Nikon’s superb ergonomics and extensive range of DX- and FX- format lenses offer the freedom to shoot subjects with ease and without limitations. It’s now also simpler than ever to share your images using the sophisticated NFC or Wi-Fi function1. The outstanding ISO performance and excellent AF system make the D7200 a cut above the rest and ensure outstanding image quality in any situation.”

Nikon-D7200-DSLR-back

Fulfil your ambitions

The D7200 is the kind of camera that will inspire you to go further with your photography than you ever have before. With its large DX-format image sensor, EXPEED 4 image processor and an ISO range of 100–25600, images boast an extremely wide dynamic range, low noise, and rich colour gradation. You get print-quality 24.2-megapixel photos of any subject, and clear high definition video footage, even when you shoot in dark conditions. The incredible flexibility this camera offers to shoot without being limited by subject or location is further assured by its pro-grade AF system, inherited from Nikon’s FX-format cameras. Sensitive down to -3 EV (ISO 100, 20 °C/68 °F), the Multi-CAM 3500 II 51-point AF system locks onto your target with incredible precision, even in the dark. Fifteen cross-type sensors in the centre deliver superior subject acquisition, and one centre point is f/8 compatible, enabling more lens/teleconverter combinations. You can shoot at up to 6 fps in DX format, and at up to 7 fps in 1.3x crop, with the camera’s large buffer capturing up to 27 12-bit RAW images and up to 100 high-quality JPEGs in one high-speed burst.2 The 1.3x crop mode also gives you the option to extend the telephoto reach of your NIKKOR lens, and have the AF system’s 51 focus points cover the entire frame.

Cinematic video your way

With video features inherited from Nikon’s professional cameras, the D7200 is a highly capable moviemaking tool. The camera records Full HD movies at up to 25p/30p, or you can switch to 1.3x crop mode and record at up to 1080/50p/60p. A dedicated movie menu lets you store all movie settings in one place, and footage can be recorded to the dual SD memory card slots, or simultaneously output to an external recorder or monitor via HDMI. You can shoot with Auto ISO control in M mode in order to transition smoothly between dark and bright areas, use Zebra mode to see exactly where highlights are blown, and apply the Flat Picture Control setting for easier colour grading in post-production. And because sound quality can make or break a movie, the camera boasts advanced audio controls that let you select the sound range (wide/voice), and reduce wind noise when recording with the built-in microphone. When recording with an external microphone, Nikon’s new optional ME-W1 Wireless Microphone is a superb way to enhance the power of your video footage with clear audio recorded directly from the source. Both the microphone transmitter and receiver capture sound, so audio can be recorded via the microphone alone, or via the microphone and the receiver, making it easy to record just your voice, focus on your subject alone, or record a two-way conversation.

Nikon-D7200-DSLR-side

Next-level sharing

The D7200 is Nikon’s first D-SLR to include support for NFC (Near Field Communication), in addition to Wi-Fi. To transfer photos to an NFC-compatible smart device, simply touch the D7200 with the device and you can transfer the image that’s showing on the camera’s LCD screen. Alternatively, use the built-in Wi-Fi to upload impressive photos via a compatible smartphone or tablet. Simply download Nikon’s free Wireless Mobile Utility app to your smart device first1. The built-in Wi-Fi function also lets you capture images remotely via your smart device, making it easy to position the camera to shoot from various vantage points. To take further control over wireless shooting, use the WR-R10 Wireless Transceiver and the WR-T10 Wireless Transmitter, or control your camera settings with the WR-1 Wireless Remote Controller. To connect to Ethernet and wireless LAN, use the optional UT-1 Data Transmitter together with the WT-5 Wireless Transmitter.

Explore, create, experiment

A range of features harness the power of the D7200’s core technology, ensuring you’re free to experiment and get as creative as you please. When shooting, the 8.0-cm (3.2-in.), 1229k-dot colour-tune monitor lets you push the colour balance and brightness in any direction to suit your personal preference. The viewfinder boasts an organic EL display element for a bright, high-contrast information display with low power consumption. Whether shooting stills or video, Nikon’s second-generation Picture Control System provides invaluable tools for control over sharpening, contrast, brightness, hue, clarity, and saturation. For ultimate freedom in post-production, the Flat setting will retain all the details and preserve rich tonal information in both highlights and shadows. The Clarity setting lets you precisely adjust contrast to differentiate fine structures. Additional creative features include the option to shoot time-lapse sequences with smooth exposure transitions through simple menu operations. And you can create spectacular light-trail photography by shooting in continuous release mode with a shutter speed of 4 seconds or slower. Simply record as many images as your media cards and battery life will allow.

Extend your creative options: NIKKOR lenses and Nikon Speedlights

Shoot with the D7200 and you have Nikon’s full range of DX-format lenses and a wide range of FX lenses at your disposal. With their exceptionally high resolving power, NIKKOR lenses are renowned amongst professional photographers in every field. The compact size of DX-format lenses is a real advantage when you want to travel light or shoot telephoto. In fact, shoot in 1.3x crop mode and you can extend the telephoto effect of a DX lens by 30 per cent. For creative flash photography, the D7200 is compatible with a range of Speedlights from Nikon’s industry-leading Creative Lighting System. Thanks to the commander function on the camera’s built-in flash, you can wirelessly trigger and control up to two groups of Nikon Speedlights. Attain more balanced images in tricky lighting situations with a compact flash like the SB-700. For movies or close-up still images, try the SB-500 with its on-board high-intensity LED light.

Meet the exceptional D810A: Nikon’s first D-SLR for astrophotography

New-Nikon-D810A-DSLR

RRP: £2,999.99 Body Only

Sales start date: End of May 2015 (tbc)

London, UK, 10 February 2015 Nikon today announces the D810A, the first FX-format D-SLR engineered for astrophotography. With a host of specialised functions, this camera captures magnificent 36.3-megapixel images of the cosmos.

The phenomenal D810A is a specially modified version of Nikon’s high-resolution master, the D810. With a redesigned infrared (IR) cut filter, this specialised D-SLR is four times more sensitive to the H-alpha spectral line (a wavelength of approx. 656 nm). For the first time with a Nikon, the true colour of nebulae that emit on the hydrogen-alpha wavelength can be captured without the need to modify the camera. Working alongside the new filter, the camera’s ultra-high ISO, outstanding resolving power, and a host of specialised functions combine to ensure photographers can capture deep sky marvels in brilliant detail.

Simon Iddon Group Product Manager (D-SLR Lenses and Accessories) at Nikon UK says: “We’re excited to introduce the D810A, Nikon’s first FX-format camera that’s been specifically designed for deep sky photography. The D810A is built on the powerful, high resolution D810 – an obvious choice considering the need for fine detail and absolute precision in this field: the D810A delivers on both counts.”

High-definition astrophotography

As a modified version of the camera that boasts the most outstanding resolving power of any Nikon D-SLR, the D810A is a very special beast. Designed to deliver the ultimate in image detail, the FX-format sensor enables high-contrast 36.3-megapixel images with minimised false colour. The standard ISO range of 200­–12800 can be extended up to 51200 ISO (equivalent) and 3D noise reduction enables clean, well-defined images at high ISOs. Nikon’s fast and powerful EXPEED 4 image processor boosts the camera’s overall performance and minimises colour fringing.

New-Nikon-D810A-DSLR-front

Modified infrared (IR) cut filter

A truly exceptional camera, the D810A delivers results that are impossible to achieve with a regular D-SLR. The D810 is a popular camera with astrophotographers: it has the power to photograph the night sky, but a standard camera sensor is not the best way to capture images of nebulae that emit on the H-alpha wavelength. In order to prevent red colour cast, the optical filters in general D-SLRs restrict transmission of reddish light in the visible light range. In contrast, the characteristics of the D810A’s optical filter have been modified to increase the transmission of reddish light from the hydrogen-alpha spectral line by approximately four times (compared to the D810). As a result, photographers can now capture the beautiful, “true-red” colour of nebulae that emit along the H-alpha wavelength without modifying the camera. The benefits of the D810A’s modifications are apparent, even when photographing starfields and star landscapes.

Specialised features

Equipped with a number of specialised functions, the D810A effectively counters some of the challenges astrophotographers face. Alongside Bulb and Time settings, a new Long Exposure Manual mode allows exposures of up to 900 seconds. To minimise internal vibrations during exposure, photographers can activate the camera’s electronic front-curtain shutter and reduce the risk of micro-blur in even subtle details. When shooting in Live view, a virtual exposure preview for Bulb and Time settings aids focus and framing. And, as with the D810, the Live view image can be magnified up to 23x, allowing critical focus checks to be made with absolute precision. When shooting through the viewfinder, a new red-lit virtual horizon display lets you confirm leveling.

New-Nikon-D810A-DSLR-back

Extended shooting power

Designed to keep you shooting for long periods of time, the D810A’s energy efficient design ensures the camera will reliably capture thousands of images with long exposures. The camera’s high-capacity EN-EL15 battery can capture up to 3,860 still images1 on a single charge, and additional power sources will keep you shooting for even longer. Nikon’s optional MB-D12 Multi-Power Battery Pack works seamlessly with the camera and can capture up to 10,660 still images on a single charge.2 The sequence of battery use can be selected and set via the camera. To extend shooting time further, use the optional EH-5b AC Adapter with the EP-5B Power Connector.

NIKKOR lenses

A great advantage of the D810A is the chance to use NIKKOR lenses. Acclaimed by astrophotography enthusiasts worldwide, NIKKOR lenses will draw out the full potential of the camera’s 36.3-megapixel sensor with ease. The highest calibre optics are vital for such a high-megapixel camera: from fast wide-angles like the AF-S NIKKOR 14–24mm f/2.8G ED lens, to a high-performance telephoto like the AF-S NIKKOR 200mm f/2G ED VR II lens, FX-format lenses ensure outstanding results.

A Christmas Evening with… Richard Young

Nikon Owner Magazine's Christmas Dinner:

Exterior shot of IoD

Friday 5th December 2014 – The London headquarters of the Institute of Directors are housed at 116 Pall Mall a magnificent Grade 1 listed building. On the outside, the flambeaux blazed a warm welcome to our guests for our Grand Christmas Dinner.

Inside the sumptuously appointed restaurant, a young gifted musician sat before a grand piano playing music which set the mood for the champagne reception as the room filled with those attending the sold-out event.

The Senior Features Editor of Nikon Owner magazine, Gillian Greenwood, warmly welcomed everyone to the 7th Annual Grand Christmas Dinner. The delicious Christmas meal was served, and after the coffee and chocolates, the guests adjourned to the Morning Room.

Nikon Owner Magazine's Christmas Dinner: The Menu

The menu for our Grand Christmas Dinner

 

In the Morning Room, Gray Levett, Editor of Nikon Owner Magazine introduced Richard Young, one of the most significant social documentary photographers of our time.

Richard Young is at the forefront of celebrity photography. With a career spanning 40 years in 2014, and no sign of stopping anytime soon, Richard’s exceptional eye and unique approach has cemented him as the most trusted and prolific contemporary photographer to the stars. As both a portraitist and photojournalist, his unerring ability to capture the moment and present a candid, inside view into the world of celebrity has resulted in iconic images that are celebrated in publications throughout the world.

In 2012, Richard was presented with the Ischia Art Award at the Ischia Global Film and Music Festival in Italy, and in the same year was featured as the subject of a four-part Sky Arts Documentary: Celebrity Exposed: The Photography of Richard Young. In 2013, he was awarded Le Prix Champagne de la Joie de Vivre, and later in the year, an Honorary Fellowship and the title Honorary Doctor in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the Field of Photography from The University of The Arts London.

Richard Young’s highly entertaining talk was illustrated by a wealth of stunning images from a distinguished range of famous subjects, from Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, from Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Junior to Tom Cruise, Princess Diana and Jackie Onassis. Over the years, he has covered the Cannes Film Festival and the Oscars in Los Angeles, as well as visiting orphanages in Romania with Michael Jackson and accompanying United States troops to Iraq. Every one of these images told a story.
