Nikon Unveils Incremental Updates with the D7200 and P900


Hark! Nikon has two new cameras: the D7200 and Coolpix P900. The former is the next iteration of the Nikon D7100 with 0.1 more megapixels, no optical low-pass filter, increased buffer capacity and built-in wi-fi. It also sports an ISO range of 100-25600. The D7100 tapped out at 6400, though it could reach 25600 in extended mode. The D7200 sports HD video, and Nikon’s created a wireless lavalier microphone for all Nikon users: the ME-W1.

Speaking of sports, one of the biggest problems with the camera when shooting sports was the buffer. It’s been increased quite a bit over its predecessor.

Specs alone, we imagine the D7200 would be a fine choice for students, beginners and enthusiasts.

The Nikon D7200 will be available in April 2015 for $1,199.95 body only or $1,699.95 with the 18-140mm f3.5-5.6.

The P900 is a camera of the Coolpix variety with a long 83x zoom range. It has a 16MP 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor with HD video capabilities and a burst capacity of 7 fps. The lens has a 35mm-equivalent focal range of 24-2000mm, and the aperture is f2.8 at its widest and f6.7 at its longest. At the widest end, there’s a shutter lag time of 0.12 seconds and 0.75 seconds at its longest.

Specs alone, we imagine this’d be great for travelers who don’t want to change lenses.

The Nikon Coolpix P900 will be available in black in April 2015 for $599.95.
