The Nikon D7200 is a powerful, advanced-enthusiast DX camera that combines features found previously in the Nikon D7100 with most of the features found in the Nikon D750 and D810. As the current flagship DX camera, the D7200 has a lot going for it, with its incredibly good 24 MP sensor (having an excellent 24.5-bits of color depth), fast autofocus, excellent memory buffer, improved low-light performance, and robust build. According to DxO Labs the camera provides about 14.6 EVs (stops) of dynamic range, giving you the ability to capture a large range of light conditions (dark to light) in one image. The D7200 is surely the most desirable camera for DX enthusiasts.

Digital Darrell comments: “I photograph wildlife in the Smoky Mountains and need that DX sensor to help me capture smaller wildlife at a distance. I didn’t think Nikon could make a camera that would replace the D7100 in my bag. However, the D7200 contains the features found in the D7100 and improves on them with new features previously found only in much more expensive cameras. The D7200 is like the offspring from a marriage of the D7100 and D750.”

Darrell’s new book, Mastering the Nikon D7200—now in stock at Rocky Nook, Amazon, and other stores— covers the D7200 in extreme detail. Darrell’s books are well known for their ease of understanding and full camera coverage. By reading over the book with your new camera in hand, you will come away with superior knowledge of the inner workings of the D7200, making you better able to use its advanced features to improve your photography. Use the coupon code “YOUNGRN40” at following link to order a printed edition, ebook, or combined print/ebook bundle for 40% off at the Rocky Nook web address. An Amazon address is also provided (without a discount, use the Rocky Nook website if possible):

The long-awaited NikoniansPress book, Mastering the Nikon D750, is now in stock at Amazon in the USA, and will be available soon in the UK and Europe. The book examines the Nikon D750 in an easy-to-understand way, providing knowledge based on real-life use of the camera. Unlike many books that focus on general photography with a certain type of camera, the NikoniansPress books focus on how to use each camera function—with suggested settings—so that the reader becomes intimately familiar with the inner workings of the D750 and can call on that knowledge for different styles of photography.

The author, Darrell Young (Digital Darrell), comments on the camera: “The Nikon D750 is truly a special camera. It has most of the features found in the pro-level Nikon D810 and F4S, in a much lighter, easier to carry body. The tilting screen, high resolution 24MP full-frame (FX) sensor, and superior autofocus system make the camera easy to use and quite satisfying. For enthusiasts and pros alike, the D750 is an excellent choice for outstanding still photography and video.”

Mastering the Nikon D750 is available in both printed and Kindle formats at this link: http://amzn.to/1pPTHyU

It is also available as a bundle of three ebook formats (PDF, ePub, and Mobi), at this link: http://bit.ly/1IzVYlU (Use the coupon code “DYOUNG” for 35% off the normal price of the eBook bundle.)
