Nikon is aggressively marketing its new D7200 DSLR as a video shooter. It certainly seems to show that the company understands the market and what it demands. The D7200 combines excellent resolution for an APS-C DSLR with good design and built quality, an improved continuous shooting buffer capacity and Wi-Fi and NFC built in. It’s an upgrade rather than a new camera, but a good one that is a lightweight yet powerful option for enthusiasts eager to create, capture and share incredible HD Video.

Speaking of video, the D7200 shoots full HD 1080p footage at 30/25p, and you can also shoot at 60p/50p when using the 1.3x crop mode. The camera is also compatible with a new Nikon ME-W1 wireless mic, which it is claimed can capture sound up to 50 metres away. Video footage can be saved to one of the D7200’s dual SD card slots, or you can transfer it via HDMI to an external recorder.

The D7200 records video footage in MP4 container using H.264/MPEG-4 Advanced Video Coding compression.
