Nikon D3200 24 MegaPixel Entry-Level DSLR
|August 2, 2012||Posted by admin under Nikon|
Nikon’s new entry-level DSLR boasts better video and lots and lots of pixels
Boasting the highest resolution available in a Nikon DX camera, this 24.3-MP model, with a high-resolution LCD, is surprisingly well specified.
It’s equipped with an 11-point AF system, a 1080p Movie mode with continuous AF, and many modes, functions and overrides.
This is the first DSLR to be compatible with a tiny Wi-Fi adapter instead of a large pro-grade Wi-Fi accessory, for easy image sharing with a smart device.
Handling and Performance
Special features include an easy-to-use Guide mode that helps you choose settings for specific subjects and situations. If you’re new to DSLR photography, or just unsure of some controls, this is a great way to get to know which settings should be used for specific subjects. An interesting optional accessory for the D3200 is the WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adaptor. This allows you to control the camera remotely and share images with an Android-based tablet or mobile phone.
The D3200 is compact but it feels solid and has a good weight for its size. The Nikon relies heavily on menu-based controls but these can be accessed quickly by pressing the info button and using the D-Pad to navigate. If you’re used to direct access buttons this takes a little getting used to, but is just as quick and effective in reality.
The focus point formation is very much like the Canon 2Ti – in a diamond in the center of the frame – but there are 11 in total here. The extra two are positioned within the diamond, which is an improvement but still avoids a wide spread of points. With a shooting speed of 4fps and 24.2MP sensor D3200 is very impressive. That’s a lot of data to handle but this does limit the camera to bursts of around 10 shots at a time.
Whether you are a novice, intermediate, or advanced photographer you will likely be very pleased with the Nikon D3200.
The D3200 body is minimalist with only a few buttons. Most controls are accessed via an easy-to-use menu system.
- 3.0″, 920k dot screen
- Full HD 1080p30 video (with 25p and 24p options)
- Microphone socket
- Twin IR remote receivers
- 4 frame-per-second continuous shooting
- I like the capability, small size and low weight of the D3200.
Well, I guess the pictures are enough not to say any other word. I am sure no other camera with in this price range can be compared to it.
Nikon says that it will continue to market and sell the D3100, giving customers the choice between a budget model, and a more sophisticated option in the D3200.
The additional functionality allows more advanced users to maximize light, shutter speed, and zoom/focal points.
The 24 million pixel sensor enables some creative image cropping while still keeping image resolution high.
Resolution is excellent, especially when coupled with the 40mm macro from Nikon. Colors just the way one would expect them, as is the hallmark of any Nikon camera.
Solid performer for the price
Super light-weight, very quiet, super high resolution (low noise, high dynamic range, superb colors), incredible HD video with slow motion. It is no doubt the most amazing DSLR value on the planet!
