    A fine photography tool

    After decades of using full frame Nikons from the famous F series to most recently the D700, D810 and D750 I was looking for a compromise - quality images from a smaller form factor. I had used the Nikon D70s, D100 and D300 APS sensor equipped cameras so I knew Nikon could deliver. But would I be satisfied going back to an APS sensor equipped camera after using the full frame Nikons? I was not expecting impressive output from the D7200. Good, certainly. Just not great. After months of use and about 5,000 images later in my opinion it is not a full frame giant killer. However, it is very good and I'll be keeping mine. I think it is a great blend of technology and features that is easy to hold and use. Add the battery grip as I did I think it feels even easier to hold and use. It works with about any Nikkor lens you care to mount, I can even use my 1980s era 500mm mirror lens on this camera. Battery life is impressive and picture quality is good. I would keep this body over the newer D7500 and I don't need the larger buffer of the D500 and I seldom shoot video so this camera is just right for my current needs. If you're shopping for a good camera in this price range I think you should give it serious consideration. And the better the optics you use the better the image quality gets.

    This Work Horse Easily Competes with Full-Frame

    When looking to purchase a camera, my main concerns were low light capabilities, battery life, time-lapse capabilities, and cost. This camera exceeded all my expectations. - It handles higher ISO very well. I'm very big on night photography. I usually will set the camera on 3200 - 6400 ISO and this has done an amazing job at keeping noise levels down and preserving detail. - There is a built in intervalometer for time-lapse. Some limitations are that you can have a max of 30 second exposures. However, that should cover 99% of your scenarios. - Battery life is phenomenal! When taking normal everyday photos, I have gotten 2000+ images on one charge. When doing long exposures, battery life is cut down to 1/3 as it takes battery to hold the shutter open. You can expect to get 5-6 hours of a 30 second exposure time lapse. - Image quality is fantastic, and the burst of 6 photos a second is more than I need. -Not having the deep pockets for a full frame camera, this was a great alternative. It easily competes with full-frame! -Have taken more than 30,000 images in the short time I have owned the camera and not a single problem.

    I originally had a D70 that I bought many moons ago and enjoyed it much more than my Konica Auto-Reflex 35mm film camera before it. Then bought a D3300 shortly after it came out and have been slowly building my DX lens collection since. I finally pulled the $$$-trigger and bought a 70-200mm f/2.8 VR1 lens, and wanted a higher end DX camera that could take advantage of the speed and IQ of the lens. The D7200s went down in price after the D7500s were introduced, so I snapped one up at a discount. It has the magnesium body and weather seals I wanted to match up with the new telephoto. I also like the very low -3EV light focusing ability and the 51-point AF system in general especially compared to the D3300 when tracking moving objects. I have an ultra-wide lens mounted on the D3300 now as a 2nd camera, and works really well with that camera. If you aren't ready to invest into the FX camera format yet because of all the DX lenses you have, the D7200 is a good bargain as they are being cleared out for the new D7500 model. All-in-all, this is a great camera

    I purchase my first DSLR in 2006. It was a Canon EOS rebel. I loved it. Recently I realized it was out of date. I did a lot of research comparing Canon with Nikon before purchasing the D7200. I'd had nothing but Canon cameras from childhood so I was hesitant to try something else. A comparable Canon came with only 1 lens so I went with the Nikon. No regrets, absolutely love it. The basic settings alone produce excellent photographs. The basic setting without flash captures indoor, low light flawlessly. Very impressive. Technology has improved massively since 2006. The camera body holds two memory cards effectively doubling your choice of memory storage. This kit came with a Nikon School online coupon and I'm excited to see what the content is. The camera feels good, the sound is good (if you're a photographer, the sound of the shutter is a beautiful thing), the lenses are easy to change and of course there are so many accessories to be found to enhance your photographic experience. I highly recommend this camera. It's a beauty.

    A winner for Nikon

    I come from a long line of Nikon cameras starting with the Nikon FG. My first Nikon DSLR was the Nikon D70, then many upgrades through the years. This D7200 is by far the best Nikon DSLR I've ever used. This is not for the beginner, I'd recommend starting out with one of the D3xxx or D5xxx cameras to get started and work up to the D7200. The first thing I did after getting this camera was to get Nikon's Nifty Fifty and the Nikon 35MM prime lens. The 35mm is a fairly fast lens and is a good walk around normal lens on a DX body. I use this camera for Landscape, night sky, and family photography. It has been a workhorse and an excellent performer. I shoot mostly RAW format and have really been able to produce some excellent images especially at high ISO's in low light. Although this camera is a few years old, it will outperform most if not all consumer level cameras. This is a very capable DSLR and will give many years of reliable performance. I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a DX format pro level DSLR.

    It was time to step up to a more advanced DSLR! The Nikon D7200 DSLR is a great camera for the Intermediate to Advanced user who isn't ready to commit to the price of a full frame camera. The features, options, and capabilities with its 24.2 megapixels, Wi-Fi connectivity, and 100-25600 ISO makes it a great camera for my many interests (nature, wildlife, astronomy, casual). I have had this camera for two months and have shot over 2500 pictures. Each is not a masterpiece, but I have gotten some excellent images out of the lot that I consider art gallery worthy. For me, the camera is worth what I paid and will be a part of my DSLR kit for a long time to come!

    I currently owned the Nikon D7100. I decided to purchase the Nikon D7200 over the Nikon D7500 because of the dual memory card slots and the price. The reviews were excellent. It is Wi-Fi capable. It's not as fast as my Nikon D500 but it's a great 2nd camera to own. This camera is very easy to use and is rugged. I use it mainly for surf photography but also for family gatherings. It's an overall great camera. How can you complain over 2 lenses, a camera bag, free memory card and accessory kit. I purchased it online before Black Friday & received the same great price without the hassle of leaving my house. It was delivered to my home. Nikon is a very reliable brand that will last a long time. In fact, you will replace it because of better features & better technology but not because of poor performance.

    This is my first DLSR camera. I spent too much time reading reviews and comparing different makes and models. This one went on sale, so I finally pulled the trigger. It is my first DLSR, so I may not know what I am missing in other models or brands, but so far, it is great. In the past, I've always used advanced point and shoot models so I am still getting used to the bulk and features of this camera. I still use point and shoots a lot, but when you have time to set up a photo, this one does a great job. As I use it more and more, I should be able to get faster with it. So far, it is great.

    This Nikon camera adds the most value for anyone looking for a versatile use option while maintaining quality. The pictures are sharp, clear and provide impact with vibrant colors. The camera has versatility of course due to the available line of lenses but also with the included editing software. I chose this camera as a gift for someone who needed to have the quality of the result and the ease of use. I additionally recommend the UV filters for the included lenses for their protection which did not come with the initial package.

    choosing between Nikon and Canon was like entering a Ford/Chevy war. Both had almost the same features, but the Nikon had a better rep for service and reliability. The tech support is free and the first online school is also free. Not being a fan of owners manuals I watched 3-4 hours of U tube video's most defaulted to Nikon. I purchased the d7200 kit ,took a shot of the super moon and was everything the reviews claimed. Also Nikon offers a version of Photoshop for free. I like this camera so much I purchased one for my daughter.

    Very nice weather resistant camera body with a fantastic sensor provides excellent dynamic range and high ISO performance is excellent as well. The 70-300mm lens that comes with this kit is the weakest part of the package. This is non-VR version and to get good performance when between 200 and 300mm, you will need to use very high shutter speed or use a tripod. And even at that, at 300mm, your image will still softer than using the 70-300mm with VR. Still, this is a good way to get into the Nikon system with a complete range of optics at a decent price.

    Make sure to select single shot and not effects when you take pics (That is the bottom dial under the one you use to select aperture etc.). That way you can set the pic quality to raw and fine jpeg. Also go to the menu and set exposure delay time to 1 or 2 seconds if you plan to use a tripod as that will help you capture sharper images. The one drawback thus far is shooting in low light (overcast not dark) scenarios but I need to verify that by eliminating all of the other variables. But if you do have a couple more Benjamin's then save it for a full frame sale instead!!!

    I had the D7000 and was ready to upgrade. The D500 was a bit out of my price range. The D7500 lost a few items I grew accustomed to, battery grip and dual card slots. So the D7200 was the logical choice for my taste. Higher frame rate and processor are great. I got a few keeper shots today that I don’t think I could have gotten out of the D7000. So I saved a few hundred bucks and got a nice upgrade. No complaints.

    I upgraded from an ancient (but still good!) Sony a100, and am very happy with my choice. I opted to stay in the crop-sensor family because I like to photograph birds and other wildlife, and I like the extra reach. I've only taken about 300 shots with it, with several different lenses, and I'm very impressed with the image quality. I don't think I'll need to upgrade again, any time soon!

    I just upgraded to this camera from a Nikon D60 that was about 10 years old. So far, I love the new camera. It came with package so I got the body, 2 lenses, and a case. Believe it's last year's model so also got a great deal on it. Lots more bells and whistles than my old one had that I"m still figuring out. Picture quality is very sharp.

    I moved up from a Canon Point and Shot to this Camera, based on recommendations from other Photographers. Love the crisp detail and fast Autofocus with good low light shots, I got the kit with two lenses that work very well for the average person needs.

    We bought this about a year ago--tired of the point & shoot digitals, And my last big Nikon purchase was a film camera - which of course is harder & harder to deal with. I really love this camera! I can't say I've used even a fraction of the functionality--gotta take time to read the manual! But very happy so far!

    Wow, what a great camera. Excellent pictures. Only drawback or regret is that the WIFI link built in is garbage. The Wifi must connect to a device and not to your router, so if you want to connect to camera you must drop your connection to your network. What a dumb idea. NFC works with WiFi to turn on and off the connection. you are better off buying a remote for the camera than trying to use a smart phone.

    I've owned Nikon cameras for over 30 years. The D7200 is just ok. Highly recommend not getting the lens package especially if you have Nikon lenses from older model Nikons. The quality of the the lenses that come with this package are very average. Quality of photos is improved when I use older lenses.

    I purchased this DSLR for my wife, who is a hobbyist photographer looking to get more serious. I did a great deal a research and found that the Nikon D7200 comes highly recommended and is highly rated. She was elated with the gift and will definitely be able to up her photography game from using the Nikon D5000.
