Not so much time has passed since the release of a hot new Nikon D7200 but talks about the next model – D7300 – have already started. People are concerned with the price of a new camera and whether the company will go to the expense of having at least the same buffer size as D300/D300s does. Maybe the matter is that the difference between Nikon D7100 and D7200 appeared not to be so noticeable or we just want too much from the crop-camera of D7200 but opinions as for the necessary and useful release of Nikon D7200 were greatly divided. Most beginners who considered D7100 or D7000 being their first digital SLR were pleased to have more functional characteristics in D7200 just by overpaying. The situation is different with the owners of D7100 and one or two owners of D7000 as they didn’t see the point in selling their devices in order to get a newer camera with the built-in WI-FI function and insignificant increase in buffer size. Therefore, even now the burning question is what Nikon company will invent in order not to surpass but at least to achieve the success of D300/D300s or D7100?
D7300 will allegedly have the vari-angle touchscreen interface as a newly released D5500 does. However, Canon started to apply this improvement in their cameras as early as in 2012. The number of megapixels is likely to remain the same (24 mp), especially if we consider the diffraction limit and the file size. Anyway, who knows if the company makes a new compression technology and constructs a new sensor, then we can speak about 30 mp or 24 mp with improved performance in D7300. As for a visual view there will be a change not only in a flippy screen but also in buttons location.
Nikon D7300, the update of D7200, is a high-end product of the DSLR series which includes high resolution photo and full HD videos. It supports full HD 1080p videos and records at 60i, 60i ,30, 25 and 24 frames per second, and the HDMI output is supported for playing back on an HDTV.
