Nikon Australia has announced March 19 local availability of the D7200, a new APS-C format DSLR with the ability to capture up to 100 shots in a single burst of continuous shooting.
It has an NFC-compatible Wi-Fi function (supported only by Android) that allows users to instantly and easily share photos they have taken via social media using a smart device. The D7200 is also equipped with enhanced movie-recording functions, including a time-lapse photography function that supports exposure smoothing, as well as functions that enable enhanced control over audio recording.
As usual Nikon advises media to ‘consult local retailers for pricing’, which is mildly annoying as local retailers don’t even have the camera for pre-order yet. However, in the US, ‘the Nikon D7200 will be available in early April 2015 either body only or kitted with the AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR for suggested retail prices (SRP) of US$1199.95 ($1545 ex GST) and $1,699.95, ($2185 ex GST) respectively.’ (Hope that helps.)
