Super-fast Operation

At the heart of the D3200 is an incredible 24.2 megapixel DX-format CMOS image sensor that works with the powerful EXPEED 3 image processor to provide remarkably clear images and excellent colour reproduction. Operating to an exceptional standard in all light conditions, the High ISO capability (100-6400 and extendable up to 12800) delivers brilliant shots and sharp images of fast moving subjects, even in poorly lit environments. With the exceptional speed and power this camera has to offer, you have the freedom to enlarge your images or crop them without losing any of the refined quality.

D-SLR Photography Made Easy

With the desire to inspire more photographers and help users to get the most out of feature-rich cameras like the D3200, Nikon’s Guide Mode offers clear step-by-step explanations and example images. Easily accessible through the mode dial found on top of the camera body, Guide Mode teaches you to set-up the camera, and shoot, view, delete or retouch images, as well as showing you how to take portraits with beautiful background blur, freeze the action, or obtain clear shots in low light. Building confidence in budding photographers, Guide Mode makes it easy for anyone to master key features and controls, without ever needing to open the camera manual.

Go Cinematic

For those who want to take their creative vision to video, Nikon’s D-Movie function gives you great compositional freedom. Recording in Full HD (1080p) at frame rates of 30p, 25p or 24p, this versatile camera offers superior video performance. Once filming is complete, you can make simple edits in-camera like trimming scenes before or after a designated point, saving specific frames as still images, or deleting unwanted scenes. On the large 7.5cm (3 inch), 921k-dot, high-resolution LCD monitor you can playback movies, view photos in a slideshow or employ interesting effects like Zoom, Fade and Cube. Nikon D3200 movies can sound as good as they look too. Thanks to the camera’s built-in microphone and compatibility with Nikon’s external ME-1 Stereo Microphone, it’s easy to capture footage with crisp, clear sound. When it comes to sharing your latest creation, the HDMI output lets you connect the camera directly to an HDTV to enjoy your movies and photos in superb high-definition[1].

Analyze and Optimise

The D3200 has a range of automatic settings to help compose beautifully balanced photos and video at decisive moments. When Nikon’s highly praised Live View is activated and Full-time-servo AF (AF-F) is selected, the camera will go to work even before you press the shutter release. Subject-tracking AF keeps your subjects in focus even when they are in motion, and Face-priority AF instantly detects up to 35 faces in a scene, continuing to track and focus in on them even if they are moving. Capturing beautiful stills is also made much easier with Scene Auto Selector which automatically selects a scene mode suited to the shooting situation and subject. For added convenience, an icon of the selected scene mode appears in the top-left corner of the LCD monitor, so you’ll know which mode, like Sports or Night Portrait, has been selected for your next shot.

Effortless Shooting

A variety of practical and innovative in-camera tools help to make the most of every shooting opportunity and ensure your pictures are captured to perfection. Some shots are so easy to miss, but with the high-speed accuracy of the 11-point AF system the D3200 delivers razor sharp images by maintaining focus on even the smallest subjects, however unpredictable their movements may be. Offering a frame rate of around 4fps in Continuous Shooting, a burst of images capture that decisive moment. When facing extremely high-contrast lighting beyond the camera’s dynamic range, Nikon’s exclusive Active D-Lighting helps maintain details in the highlights without losing them in the shadows. If you prefer to take greater control of exposure, the PSAM modes offer a complete range of semi-automatic and manual options. For greater creative control, effects like Selective Colour or Colour Sketch let you determine the look and mood of your photos or video, and with extensive in-camera editing options you can quickly enhance images with functions such as Red-Eye Correction and Quick Retouch.

A wide range of retouch filter effects let you express unique artistic flare in your photos. Miniature, Monochrome, Selective Colour, and Colour Sketch options are illustrated here.

Optional Wireless Capabilities

Achieving superior images, the feature-rich D3200 will make sure your photos stand out from the smartphone crowd on any social network. Sharing your images is simple with the help of Nikon’s optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter. By attaching the adapter to the D3200’s USB connector you can transfer images directly to a smartphone or tablet and control the camera remotely via the smart device; a great way to easily share high-quality images, preview shots on a larger screen, or experiment with full-frame self-portraits[2].

Lens Kits – The Right Choices

With outstanding Nikon technologies behind every lens kit, you can feel confident that you will take amazing, high-quality photos. The D3200 is compatible with the full range of DX-format NIKKOR lenses and is available separately or in a lens-kit with the small retractable NIKKOR 18–55mm f/3.5–5.6G VR II lens[3]. Whether you’re shooting fast action, taking a wide-angle group portrait in low light, or zooming in to capture distant subjects, Vibration Reduction (VR II) stabilisation enables up to 4 stops (16 times) faster shooting, helping ensure clear, blur-free images.

With incredible power, in-built photographic tuition and creative in-camera editing features, the Nikon D3200 achieves image perfection with ease.

Style Name: 18-55mm VR Lens KitColour Name: Black. Verified Purchase
Written: 04-06-2014

I bought this camera back in September 2013 and initially was impressed by the apparent quality of the images. However when enlarged in a picture editor the results were consistently soft focus. I thought this might be caused by the supplied stock 18-55mm lens inability to resolve the full detail of the 24.2MP sensor.

I compared some pictures I had previously shot on a Fuji 4MP camera with those on the D3200 at full resolution and the Fuji results were far superior! Something seriously wrong here.

Reading the review listed by Vitamino -- 2 May 2014 about a back-focus error threw some light on the issue.

To cut a long story short after Nikon UK making me jump through endless hoops I returned the camera, and additional lenses I had bought in the meantime, to Nikon UK under Warranty to be checked and re-calibrated.

The subsequent before and after difference is like chalk and cheese. Now I have an excellent camera that really produces extremely sharp and detailed shots and now I know, for sure, that the lenses are perfect too.

I give this re-calibrated camera 5 stars and Nikon UK one star for extremely disappointing and frustrating customer service.

Check the quality of your pictures thoroughly and if they start going soft focus at 150% enlargement then you know exactly what the problem is. Contact Nikon and request the camera is re-calibrated under Warranty. I can assure you the inconvenience and frustration of dealing directly with Nikon is well worth it if you value superior technical results.

Do hope this helps and thanks to Vitamino.

Style Name: Body OnlyColour Name: Black Verified Purchase
I've used Nikon cameras since the Nikon F back in the 60s. I used Nikon cameras as a professional photographer right up to the F4S when I retired. I sold all my film stuff and bought a D70 and soon changed to a D90 which I used up to yesterday.

Then the D3200 arrived and, for the price, it is awesome. You can cut a small piece out of the centre of a photo and enlarge it and it looks like full frame. That is where this camera comes into its own. With its 24 Megapixel CMOS sensor it leaves everything except the D800 (£2900.00) way behind.

I've heard it said that anything over 12 Megapixels doesn't really matter. Well this camera gives the lie to the statement. It makes a hell of a difference.

It also takes superb 1080p videos and will auto focus while doing so, something the the D90 wouldn't do. Another improvement on the D90 is the fact that it has infra red remote release windows on the back as well as the front. I thought it was a bit silly for the D90 to only have one on the front which is where you are least likely to use it.

A word of warning though. If you already have a Nikon digital camera, then you probably have the Nikon View NX2 software. This camera comes with the latest View NX2 software but do not overwrite the old software. I did and then found that I couldn't open the RAW (NEF) files from the D3200. The way to do it is to uninstall the old software before you install the new. Then it works perfectly.

If you purchase this camera get yourself a big SDHD card as the file sizes are huge. Shooting in RAW (which I always do) you'll get 259 exposures on an 8 Gig card. So my next purchase will be a 32 Gig card. Amazon do a Sandisc Ultra 32 Gig card at £17.77; a very good price.

Very happy with the camera! It makes great pictures, it becomes even better when you learn how to use the special modes where you make decisions and adjustments to the settings before taking a snap!

Style Name: 18-55mm VR II Compact Lens KitColour Name: Black
Having only ever used a point and click camera before, I wanted to take the next step. I have been impressed with the past two Nikon coolpix cameras I have had so decided to try this DSLR. I am really glad I did, the images I have managed to take have been superb, a relay big step up. I must say the change in process has been a fairly steep learning curve; but has been worth sticking with. The kit lens is a good start but I almost instantly needed to buy a second telephoto lens.
The problem with moving from a very compact camera to a DSL is the size, I now find myself with a backpack with a camera and 3 lenses which is quite heavy. but the images you can get are defiantly worth the increase in weight and additional exercise.

This is my first DSLR. I did a small amount of research before purchasing to find a good 'entry level' camera. The D3200 was one which many people said is great for the novice (like me) but is also versatile enough to support the photographer's development through to being competent and perhaps experimental when moving away from the automatic settings.

So far, I have been very impressed with this camera and achieved the kinds of photographs I have been hoping for.

Nikon D3200 Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens Kit - Black (24.2MP) 3 inch LCD

I normally use a Canon 5D mark II but since using the Nikon 3200 with kit lens it is the one I am carrying around more and more. Much lighter to carry yet quality build. Great value for £459 from Amazon. It is extremely well thought out with buttons on the outside to easily access ISO, white balance, exposure compensation etc without having to go through time consuming menu systems. I have used the sports mode one of the many scene modes available. One flick of the wheel, I was taking photographs of a cocker spaniel going at full speed after a ball. I didn't expect the camera to cope but it did and I ended up with very sharp images. I also used Shutter Priority and put the camera on continuous shooting and was very impressed with the speed and quality. I often take landscape photographs and maybe they weren't quite as contrasty as my Canon but soon fixed in Photoshop. However I was very impressed with the detail especially from a kit lens. I was able to shoot in Raw and Jpeg and was surprised that an entry level camera like this one even had spot metering. It even has 11 auto focus points in contrast to my 5D mark II which only has 9! As someone who always has wonky horizons, I found that I could straighten up my image having taken the shot in camera and it was extremely easy to do so. I could also trim my shot in camera to crop out any distracting elements and with 24.2 megapixels, I knew my image would still be of very good quality. I liked the playback system especially when I could playback up to 72 images which showed up on the rear screen like a contact sheet.
