The Nikon D7200 camera features multiple enhanced features in comparison to the D7100 model, including a higher sensor resolution, a more advanced image processor and a larger buffer depth for files in the RAW format. The D7200 model also uses an improved autofocusing system and a better picture control functionality.
By being able to take up to 1,100 shots or record up to 80 minutes of video, the D7200 features an improved battery life relative to the D7100 model, which is limited to 950 shots based on the CIPA standards. Although both models utilize the same sensors, with 24.2 million pixels, the D7200 features a slightly higher pixel count in comparison to 24.1 million pixels of the D7100 model. The D7200 also features a higher sensitivity to light, with an ISO ranging from 100 to 25,600, whereas the D7100 requires an expansion to reach the same level. The higher sensitivity to light allows the D7200 to produce images of higher quality and less visual noise than the D7100.
Unlike the D7100, the D7200 uses the Picture Control 2.0 system, which allows it to produce images with a higher dynamic range. The D7200 also features separate horizontal and vertical focus point adjustments, which the D7100 lacks. The D7200 utilizes the more advanced 51-point autofocus system, allowing it to establish focus easier in low-light circumstances while performing better when using slower lenses.
