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.
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.

Active D-Lighting when shooting, and D-Lighting when retouching, both work to preserve details in highlights and shadows.
An 11-point autofocus system combined with Subject Tracking AF maintains focus even when the subject is moving unpredictably.
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.
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.
