Nikon D7200, alone, is a wonderful camera to own as it gives you the whole experience of being a professional photographer. It may be heavier (675g) and bulkier (5.4in x 4.2in x 3.0in) compared to others; but with its magazine-like image quality and easy to handle, you would certainly forget about its weight.
But if you want to get the most out of your Nikon D7200, you’re going to need a couple of accessories. Since Nikon D7200 is good to use for shooting sports, wildlife and everyday moments, we listed all the accessories that can make your life easier and enjoyable.
Best Nikon D7200 Accessories
Nikon D7200 is powered by an EN-EL15 Lithium-Ion battery. This is a great advantage for Nikon D7200 because Lithium-ion batteries have a higher energy density, low maintenance and its rate of self-discharge is much lower compared to other types of batteries.
If you’re planning to buy an extra battery to extend your Nikon D7200 life, it’s recommended to buy the exact match, EN-EL15 rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery. You will never have a problem looking for it because it’s available in both online and Nikon physical stores.
These rechargeable batteries provide 7.0V and capacity of 1900mAh. Also, the charger to be used for this battery is the MH-25 charger.
If there’s a case that you couldn’t find one, you can always look for its replacement, EN-EL15a Rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. The charger to be used for this battery is an MH-25a charger.
2. MB-D15 Grip
If you already have an extra battery, the best way to use it without interrupting your photo shoot is by having a battery grip. The battery grip is installed at the bottom of the Nikon D7200 and will hold the extra battery. When the main battery runs out, the camera will automatically shift to use the battery in the grip.
MB-D15 Grip is the best choice for Nikon D7200. This battery grip weighs 3.52oz and equipped with an AE/AF lock button, shutter-release button, and multi-selector. It also has two command dials that are advantageous to use whenever you’re shooting with the camera in a vertical position.
The MB-D15 Grip can hold six AA batteries (Alkaline or Ni-MH or Lithium), or one EN-EL 15 rechargeable Li-ion batteries.
For Nikon D7200, the best choice for Speedlight is SB-700 AF. This Speedlight is portable and versatile to use. Its features are, but not limited to:
- It has a Precision i-TTL Flash Control that provides precise flash exposures even in challenging lighting conditions or situations.
- Its’ flash head is flexible to bounce 90° up and 7° down with 360° rotation.
- It has a Flash Tube Overheat Protection to avoid overheating.
A little tip: Before buying a Speedlight it’s best to check for its guide numbers first. Guide numbers are the standard way to determine the power of the flash. For SB-700 AF, it has a guide number of 28m to 39m.
The best choice for a memory card is none other than SanDisk Extreme Plus. We recommend this memory card because it’s designed specifically for DSLR with interchangeable-lens cameras and high-performance camcorders as well.
SanDisk Extreme Plus has a write speed up to 40MB/s which is an advantage for a faster shooting performance and a read speed up to 90 MB/s for faster transfer.
Durability-wise, you couldn’t ask for more as SanDisk Extreme Plus is equipped with shockproof, temperature-proof, waterproof and x-ray proof.
5. MeFOTO Classic Aluminium Road trip Travel Tripod
When shopping for a tripod, people commonly have a problem deciding on what height of it to buy. The best way to determine this is by considering your height. You must buy a tripod that has the same height as yours to ensure that you will not bend too much or tip-toe just to look at the viewfinder.
Since Nikon D7200 is great to use in outdoor photography, we choose a tripod that has a compact design and versatile to use. That tripod is the MeFOTO Classic Aluminium Road trip Travel Tripod.
This tripod has a height of 61.6in when it column is extended, 15.4in when folded and 64in when converted into a monopod. It can also carry a maximum load of 8kg.
The best way to do this is by using disc light reflector. The disc light reflector is a great tool to help you fill in, diffuse, reflect, soften or absorb light. For Nikon D7200, we choose TOMTOP Disc Collapsible Light Reflector.
This disc light reflector has a round shape, 24-inch in size, weighs 238g and comes with 5 different colors namely: Silver, White, Gold, Translucent, and Black.
7. ML-L3 Wireless Remote Control
A wireless remote control isn’t always on the list of must-have items for some photographers. But in outdoor photography, it’s advantageous to use because it will give you an opportunity to be included in the photo or discover a new perspective in shooting your subjects.
For Nikon D7200 the best wireless remote control is ML-L3. It has a slim design that offers 2 modes: immediate release mode and 2-second delay mode. We also prefer this one because it’s good to use for subjects that are difficult to approach, like wildlife which is one of the strengths of Nikon D7200.
