The Nikon D7200 Could Be Announced This February 2015

D7200 to be released soon?

New Nikon Producs Coming Soon?

Leaked certificates about new Nikon cameras appeared on a Russian site called Novocert, a site that is gathering documents and information’s from public sources and registered companies, workers or entrepreneurs. According to the leaked documents from this website there are several new Nikon cameras rumored to be announced at the CP+ 2015 Camera And Photo Imaging Show in Japan. The exhibition will open February 12 and ends on February 15.

The rumored new Nikon cameras are the Nikon D7200 DSLR, mirrorless Nikon 1 J5 camera and it is possible that they will announce a high-end compact camera called Nikon Coolpix P900. Other compact cameras as the Nikon Coolpix S9900, Nikon Coolpix S7000, Coolpix S3700, Coolpix L840, Coolpix P610 and the Coolpix AW130 could be announced too according to the leaked certificates:

If the leaked documents have substance, that is another question. But the CP+ exhibition opening is not far away, we might find out more February 12. Previously there were all kind of rumors about the Nikon D7200 specifications. You can find different sites that assume the following D7200 specs:

  • New 24MP APS-C sensor
  • Expeed 4 processor
  • Body similar to the Nikon D750
  • Articulating screen (Often called tilting or swivel screen)
  • MultiCAM 3500DX2 autofocus system
  • 51 autofocus points
  • 6 FPS
  • Wi-Fi built-in
  • Buffer: 16 RAW+JPG
  • Video: 1080p at 60 FPS and 720p at 120 FPS
  • Aperture in video mode might be adjustable during Live View

If you planned to buy a D7100, it might make sense to wait some time now, in case the Nikon D7200 rumors come true with the starting CP+ exhibition in Japan. However, if the Nikon D7200 announcement comes true, it is still in question where Nikon did set the release date. Anyway, the D7200 might be a very good successor to the D7100. It would also be interesting to find out more about the Nikon D7200 price then. Let’s see.

    • I saw a lot of photographers talking in forums that they never would need a swivel screen as they would use the viewfinder and I partly agree. I am pretty much sure that I will use the viewfinder most of the time too. However, I can see several situations where a swivel screen would be extremely handy, especially for photography near the ground. So, yes if I get a high end DSLR, it’s an extra feature I do demand 🙂 Same for built-in WiFi and so.

      I think I need to wait for February 12 to find out if the rumors come true. If they are true and if Nikon does officially announce the D7200, I will wait for the release date instead of buying the D7100. 🙂

      • There are times when they prove to be very useful. I would like to share my experience. I was trying macro to shoot flowers in a garden. It was a resort in a hill station. The gardener said don’t go too close to the orchard, leeches are there. So, I had to change from viewfinder to LCD display to maintain a safe distance. So, I fully agree with your point about swivel screen. Hope you get the cam you want pretty soon! 🙂

      • That is a good example Moon, it’s extremely handy for flower and insect photography. I experienced several situations where I would like to make shots near the ground, for example on the level of my cat (to have a perspective as if I would be that small too), but I would need to lie on the ground, but with the swivel screen I could just kneel down and turn the swivel screen up. But my cheap digital camera had no swivel screen to have it a little bit more comfortable in those situations. 🙂 Yes, let’s see how my decision about the new camera will be 🙂

  1. I got used to the articulating screen of my Canon G12 travel compact (I travel by pushbike). I waited for the Nikon 7100 but didn’t buy it because it didn’t have a swivel screen. I cannot do without it anymore. If the Nikon 7200 finally has a tilting screen, I’ll buy it.

    • Exactly, this is one of the reasons why I waited too. I wanted the D7100 as well because I am overall happy with the specs, it’s just that some handy features are missing that I would like to have too, including swivel screen, built-in WifI and so. If the rumors come true, then the D7200 is exactly what I want.

  2. I’ve delayed purchasing the d7100 for months now in anticipation of this camera, (you know, just in case I bought one and the price plummeted weeks later when the d7200 came out) … I should have bought it… Anywho; I might as well just invest in the new D7200 if it has the added features I needed. 🙂

    • Same here. Saved enough for the D7100 and delayed the decision because my bet is the same as yours 🙂 I thought about both as well, the D7100 could be cheaper after the D7200 is released, or I could even decide to buy the D7200. Same idea 🙂

  3. I hate a swivel screen so the camera would not be a choice for me .that is the reason why I would not choose the d750 even if it is a full frame I would save and get the d810.

    • I can understand that, we all have different demands and ideas what the gear should do for us. I heard a lot of photographers saying that they don’t need a swivel screen, but then there are also those who would like this screen, I am one of them. But that said, even with swivel screen I would use the viewfinder to 90% of course, but in some situations it would be very handy, for example for my cat or flower photography. But I heard that swivel screens are pretty vulnerable, so I am afraid that a defect could happen.

  4. If the only major difference between D7100 and D7200 is a swivel screen and built-in wifi plus I’d say $400 difference, the upgrade will not be practical because it retains the core features of the D7100 (24MP resolution, no-pass filter, intervalometer, focus points, etc.).
