To test the new features of Nikon’s D7200 DSLR and show off its abilities, I took two simple strolls from the B&H SuperStore, at 9th Ave and 34th Street, around our West Side neighborhood, finishing one walk atop the Empire State Building, just four bustling blocks from our offices, and the other on the Highline Park as a lovely spring day was coming to a close.
