Nikon D5200 Review


Nikon D5200 features an all-new sensor at the resolution of 24 .1 megapixels, ISO range runs between 100-6400 which can also be expanded to 25,600 but the 5200 also adopts the latest generation image process and that’s an EXPEED 3 Image Processor. This enables the camera to shoot up 24fps and it also allows the camera to shoot FULL HD movies at 60i and 50i frame rates. One of the great benefits on D5200 is the new Nikon’s Multi-CAM 4,000 800 DX AF sensor module which allows this camera to find up to 39 AF points. If you just head into the menu just set this by the 39 points, alternatively you can just set it to 11 points if you’d like to just move across the frame really quickly.

Available at AmazonD5200 3D AF Tracking is excellent for locking onto moving subjects, it’s really fast and responsive and although the 18-55mm kit lens may be adequate for beginners but those that really want to take advantage of the AF system must use 5200 with some premium glass. D5200 also embraces the 2016-pixel metering system from other cameras in the constraints such as D600 and D7000 cameras. You can also change the exposure compensation when you’re recording videos. One of the key differences between D5200 and its entry-level cousin D3200 is that 5200 has tilting screen movable to any angle for high or low angle shooting and it’s a screen that measures 3-inch and it features a 921,000 pixels dot resolution.

Although D5200 doesn’t feature Wi-Fi and GPS built into the camera but it does actually support both of these features, but you have to buy them additionally which increases its cost very slightly such as wireless mobile adapter for Wi-Fi which will cost you 50 pounds and GPS adapter will set you back 199 pounds approx. Nikon D5200 choose a variety of different frame rates including 50i, 30fps, 25fps and 24fps. You can also have an option to attach an external microphone to listen audio and monitor it as you create your videos.

Even though it looks almost identical to the D5100 but actually is 45 grams heavier and if you just take a look underneath it also just uses the same battery, so those who are going to upgrade can just use same batteries. It’s also got a really good new graphic user interface; just make it a little bit easier when you’re setting up the camera, this new GUI makes it very easy to set up your shutter speed, aperture and ISO settings. The metering system works very well indeed and able to produce any exposure compensation to produce extra exposures in scenes with a wide dynamic range; if you’d like the camera to help restore more accurate detail from high-contrast scenes, lightning active is also available and applies automatic digital processing to the brightest or darkest areas of an image. Nikon D5200 produces bright and vibrant images straight out of the camera color; accuracy is a good representation of what your eye sees at the point of capture. You can see noises in images when taken at 100 percent but you can easily just remove the noise but we would say avoid the extended ISO settings.

Nikon D5200 will cost you $616 to $699.
