  • - Sensitivities greater than ISO 25,600-equivalent are only available in black-and-white mode.
    - Full-time autofocus is slow to respond, and prone to hunting or seeking in the wrong direction.
    - Metering and function buttons are tough to reach if your hands aren't large.
    - Built-in Wi-Fi functionality is rough around the edges, and has a limited feature-set.


  • Rather than completely changing the design and way the D7200 works, Nikon has made a few incremental upgrades which tweaks the camera to make it even more appealing than its predecessor (which was also pretty great). It’s designed for enthusiasts, which means that it needs to be good at a wide variety of different subject matters - and happily, the D7200 is.
    Whether you feel you want to upgrade from the D7100 is questionable and it may come down to the type of subjects you like to shoot.


  • The Nikon D7200 really pulls it out of the bag where it matters. From enhanced image quality to improved autofocus performance, it's a solid enthusiast DSLR that rights many of the wrongs of its predecessor. In particular there's no longer prevalent banding when making raw file adjustments, which is the biggest issue of the earlier D7100. For all its good, however, there's one key downside: the lack of a vari-angle LCD feels amiss, particularly considering the competition and movie mode improvements.


  • The Nikon 1 J5's sensor is smaller than those in most other CSCs, but it's stylish and practical and small enough to compete with regular compact cameras, not just other CSCs.


  • - The results were really good with very realistic colors, especially if you get to use a prime lens like we did.
    - It’s a good one, and we had few issues with wipeout or reflectivity once we cranked up the display brightness.
    - We were especially pleased with images taken outdoors and, thanks to the BSI imager, interior shots were also good.
    - For a small camera with a small chip, it’s a good ISO performer.


  • It looks like Nikon is heading in the right direction in more ways than one with the Nikon 1 J5.
    The Nikon 1 J5 is a super speedy camera, and while it has a smaller sensor, it more than makes up for it in speed. The J5 is competitively priced, and an excellent option for casual consumers looking for something better than their smartphone, or anyone looking to shoot fast action.


  • The Nikon D5500 D-SLR delivers images that are just as good as the D5300 it replaces, and manages to do so in a smaller body.


  • Nikon's mid-range DSLR camera continues to evolve with the introduction of the D5500, which is smaller and significantly lighter than its predecessor whilst additionally offering a new touchscreen LCD/interface. It also sensibly ships with the retractable 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 VR II lens which helps to keep the overall package very compact for a DSLR. While it won't set your pulse racing, for the most part the Nikon D5500 is an .


  • The D5500 offers beginners a lot of creative control, the touch-screen display is a useful addition and the sensor captures high levels of detail. It's a pleasing camera, but it's no game-changer.


  • The Nikon D750 delivers pro-level performance at a reasonable asking price, making it our Editor's Choice for full-frame DSLRs under $2,500.


  • Combining the design and handling of the cheaper D610 with many of the more expensive D810's features, Nikon have clearly positioned the new full-frame D750 between the two. Do you like the compactness, handling and smaller 24-megapixel files of the D610 but want the better features (especially on the video side) of the D810? Then the D750 is an obvious choice, especially when you consider that it also offers built-in wi-fi, a tilting LCD screen, 6.5fps continuous shooting, even lower-light auto-focusing and longer battery life.

    The Nikon D750 is an outstanding Full-Frame dSLR. A great mix of performance and image quality, you will get the best of both worlds. Along with the outstanding performance, Nikon has also included some great convenience features like a tilting LCD and Built-in WiFi connectivity. .


  • - Places strong demands on your lens and ability to keep the camera steady or use a high-enough shutter speed, if you really want to extract the maximum detail.
    - Auto and Incandescent white balance too warm in tungsten lighting.
    - Default saturation, contrast and sharpening a little high for a pro model (though some will prefer the change in JPEG rendering).
    - Wi-Fi connectivity relies on an expensive, external accessory that negates the D810's weather-sealing.


  • The Nikon D810 is a high-resolution monster with incredible image quality and performance. It's expensive, but earns Editors' Choice honors.


  • The Nikon D810 is an incremental upgrade of a great camera, adding slightly better image quality and a smattering of new features to the best-selling D800/E, most notably the improved shutter mechanism and electronic shutter option which help to combat unwanted vibrations, and the beefed-up video mode. While the D810 remains an enticing proposition, it faces fierce competition not only from Canon with the venerable EOS 5D Mark III, but Sony with the smaller, lighter and just as capable A7R.
