If you’ve been following my blog you know that I’ve been posting a lot of my photography. I started taking photos back in 2006 on Fuji point and shoot camera and bought my first DSLR, a Nikon D80, in 2007. My Nikon D80 has been (and still is) a wonderful camera, but it’s 10 years old. She’s still going strong, but because I’m trying to get back into photography I felt that my D80 needed to be put on backup duty.
It’s important to have a backup camera because let’s face it, things happen and if you’re in the middle of a shoot and your camera breaks, having a backup is crucial.
I’ve been looking at Nikon camera bodies for a few months and finally decided on the Nikon D7200. I purchased it from B&H Photo after reading countless reviews from many different websites. Functionally, it’s very similar to the D80 and this camera leaves me plenty of room to grow. It’s a little bigger and heavier than the D80, but it’s not a huge difference. There’s nothing better than unboxing something that you’ve saved and worked hard for.
Here are some of the features:
- 24.2MP DX-Format CMOS Sensor
- EXPEED 4 Image Processor
- No Optical Low-Pass Filter
- 3.2″ 1,229k-Dot LCD Monitor
- Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 60 fps
- Multi-CAM 3500 II DX 51-Point AF Sensor
- Native ISO 25600, B&W to ISO 102400
- 6 fps Shooting for Up to 100 Frames
- Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity with NFC
- In-Camera Time Lapse, Up to 9,999 Frames
I’m so excited to take my new camera out this weekend for a test run and post the results here on the blog! I’ll post some more details about the new camera when I do.
