Release Date: Jan 2013

Manufacturer: Nikon

Included: pouch, rechargeable battery

Although the Nikon D5200 camera was actually released to other parts of the world in November 2013, it is only now making its appearance in North America. It is an upper entry level DSLR product with a 39-point AF system. This 24MP device is within the higher echelons of the brand’s production line. A price tag of circa $900 might appear to be dear but in reality you get what you pay for. They have added the Nikkor 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 VR kit lens for good measure. The LCD screen is articulated with a reading of 920k dot. Moreover it is compatible with a WU-1a Wi-Fi module which is added using the clip-on method. The D-SLR performance needs no introduction and the features on this camera have been imaginatively designed for maximum impact.

Nikon D5200 Features

It goes without saying that the Nikon D5200 camera is capable of Full HD video production with its 24.1 megapixel specifications. A number of special effects have been added for the express purpose of making life easier for the user. For example it is possible to share files without a single cable using the wires features. Its design is compact yet that portability does not negatively impact on the advanced features that come with the package.

The Vari-Angle LCD screen is worthy of a separate chapter. It is capable of very high resolutions. This 3-inch LCD screen has a reading of 921,000-dot. It can rotate and swivel depending on the angle that is most conducive to the user, going as far as 170 degrees. Have you ever thought of taking images from the perspective of your little ones? The Nikon D5200 allows you to do this without messing up the quality of the final images. The Mode Dial allows you to select a series of effects which are meant to improve the quality of the original image as well as its presentation. A Selective Color facility allows the user to choose up to 3 principle colors when they are working with a monochrome scene.

With the Miniature Effect you are able to create small models and even take photographs in the dark using the Night Vision facility. It is possible to emphasize silhouettes in both video and picture mode regardless of whether it is a high-key or low-key scene. Moreover the effects can be pre-set or post-set so that you do not have to worry about correcting minor errors once the image has been viewed. The enhanced graphical user interface is designed to facilitate your creativity. The branded Picture Controls complement its High Dynamic Range or HDR. An ISO range of 100-6400 is one of the reasons why you will not regret buying the Nikon D5200. The EXPEED 3 image processing is very swift and actually increases energy efficiency.

All the mod-cons that you would expect of a camera are to be found on the Nikon D5200. At the same time it makes things so easy with its Scene Recognition facilities. The high price notwithstanding, this is a great triumph for the brand.
