Nikon has been playing the game of photography and imagery since 1917, not only being limited to cameras but also owning a major market share in any field which has anything to do with lenses, whether it be binoculars, telescopes, microscopes or even eye wear.
But for now, we’re only going to be looking at some of the cameras that Nikon has recently added to the market, the D7200, the D750 and D5500. But first, let us take a look at Nikon in general and why people choose it over Canon.
Whether it’s just a fight between the fans of either side or simply a professional photographer making the decision, the facts remain the same and for the time being, these facts say that whether you stick to Nikon’s cameras or switch over to Canon, you’re going to have a similar experience for the forseeable future.
This is mostly because of the fact these both of these companies have been making cameras for well over a lifetime and both are going to be a century old within the coming couple of decades, professional photographers keep switching between NIkon and Canon according to their needs.
And as soon as one company makes the leap of faith towards a new technology, professionals will follow and make the switch, as far as regular consumers are concerned however, we can pretty much assume that both of them are going to be virtually identical over the longer course of time, we simply cannot afford to switch brands as often as professionals.
So now that we’re done talking about why Nikon’s a good company to put your money behind, let’s take a look at the three recent cameras we named earlier.
A replacement for the older D7100, the D7200 improves on quite a few aspects while also sticking to the roots on others.
Using the same battery as the D7100 while giving you the ability to take more images is a huge pro point and tells you a lot about technology, this is a major driving force for people to make the switch from the D7100 as they’ll be able to keep using their current batteries while being able to take more pictures in the long run.
Giving you dual SD cards and a wider range of ISO options along with updated video recording options is something not to be taken as a joke either, in all meanings of the word, the D7200 is truly an upgrade over its predecessor.
The D7200 is also able to connect with your phone to capture images remotely, view them or simply transfer them.
The D750 on the other hand is an update to the much older D700 which all the amateur photographers were waiting for
Replacing the older sensor with a much newer one and increasing the range of ISO even further, the D750 paves the way for amateur photographers to move up in the field of photography.
Being the first camera in the series to have a tilting monitor which lets you look at the image being taken even in situations where it’d be considered a blind shot, gives amateur photographers a helping hand as they get familiar with the camera itself.
Making images more sharper and being the first Nikon DSLR to give their users a touch screen, the D5500 makes life for beginner users easier than ever.
The touch screen doesn’t only make it easier to change the settings but also makes it possible to set the focus point by simply tapping the object you’d like to be focussed, making autofocus better than ever.
Built in WiFi helps you transfer images, take new ones or simply upload to the smartphone as soon as its connected, a better ISO range in low light situations along with the ability to minimize shutter speeds by making the image completely black and white makes the D5500 a sound choice for people not yet fully confident at manual focus.
