Nikon D3200 - low light performance
Amazing low light performance

The Nikon D3200 won’t let you down in the dark: even in low light conditions. You can achieve low noise and precise image results thanks to the D3200’s wide light sensitivity range (100-6400 extendable to 12,800 in Hi 1), allowing you to capture atmospheric shots without using the flash, thus preserving the natural lighting in your pictures.

Stunning image quality
Stunning image quality

With a resolution of 24.2 megapixels, the Nikon D3200 sets new standards in its class. The combination of a high resolution CMOS image sensor and the extremely powerful EXPEED 3 image processing engine makes it easy to take shots with spectacular detail and high quality tonal reproduction.

Guide Mode
Step-by-step instructions for incredible images: Guide Mode

Are you new to D-SLR photography? Guide Mode is very easy to use and helps you navigate camera settings step by step on the large 3-inch, 921,000 pixel screen, so you can achieve the best results from the very beginning. Guide Mode has two levels (beginner and advanced) to suit any skill level. In the beginner section, you can quickly find the right automatic program for any given image situation. The advanced section provides an understanding of imaging parameters such as aperture and shutter speed in an easy and helpful way, giving you the opportunity to have a unique and creative influence over your image results.

Full HD function with up to 30 frames/second

Some moments deserve more than a picture: the video feature allows you to record full HD (1080p) movies at up to 30 frames per second, so you can enjoy special experiences in breath-taking clarity and re-live them over and over again. Among the AF operating modes for video, continuous focus is available.

In Camera Picture Editing

With the high-resolution display, you can edit your images directly inside the camera. Your creativity has no boundaries: give your photo a colour sketch effect or a miniature effect, or choose specific areas of the image to colour. Image adjustments are child's play: for example, you can quickly straighten a tilted image or even lighten up a dark picture. With the Nikon D3200, you can create memorable moments as both photographer and designer at once.

Review


From dpreview.com:

The D3200 represents the latest generation of Nikon's entry-level DSLR offering. The camera's headline feature is inevitably the new 24MP CMOS sensor which makes it equal to Sony's Alpha SLT-A65, A77 and NEX-7 in offering the highest pixel count we've yet seen at the APS-C sensor size, and in terms of output resolution, second only to the full-frame professional-grade D800 in Nikon's entire range. More significant than the bare fact of the D3200's pixel count. The D3200 may not exactly be revolutionary, but it doesn't have to be. It just has to be competitive.

Pixel-count aside, the changes from the predecessor D3100 are subtle but, with 1080p30 video, a 920k dot LCD and the option to add an affordable Wi-Fi transmitter, there are clear benefits over the D3100's specification. As usual for Nikons at this level, the D3200 doesn't feature a built-in focus motor, and nor does it offer auto exposure bracketing. It also features a simplified version of the Active D-Lighting function that is now common across Nikon's DSLR range.

Also missing, oddly, are live view in-camera filter effects. Since Olympus introduced its Art Filters to the E-30 back in 2008, processing filters have become increasingly common on most cameras. And, while they're not an essential feature by any means, they're nice to have, especially in a camera at this level. Given that such effects are available in both the higher-level Nikon D5100 and the Coolpix P7100, their absence in the D3200 is unexpected. There is an option to re-process JPEGs, though, and apply several effects including simulated 'miniature' (tilt/shift) and 'selective color'.

Despite these omissions, the D3200 offers a compelling feature set for a camera in this class. We're especially pleased to see that you even have the option to trigger the shutter with an infrared remote - with the inclusion of sensors on the front and rear of the camera.

The inexorable rise of the mirrorless camera has undoubtedly put particular pressure on the entry-level end of the large sensor market. The smaller body sizes of mirrorless cameras, combined with their more compact-camera-like operation has helped win over some people who would otherwise have bought a DSLR, as well as drawing people away from high-end compacts. However, entry-level DSLRs still have a lot to offer - not least 'true' continuous autofocus that no mirrorless camera has come close to matching (aside from Nikon's own 1 V1 and 1 J1, which feature smaller 'CX' sensors).

Although its upgrades aren't necessarily the product of great leaps of ingenuity, the D3200 is a continuation of a carefully evolved - and tailored to suit its market - line of cameras, that has always offered good image quality and performance combined with well thought-out ease-of-use.

Nikon D3200 specification highlights:
  •     24MP CMOS sensor
  •     ISO 100-6400 (plus ISO 12,800-equivalent Hi1 setting)
  •     Expeed 3 processing
  •     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

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.

Style Name: 18-55mm VR II Compact Lens KitColour Name: Black Verified Purchase
I won't add to all the superlatives noted by other users, although I could! All I will add is this: Steve Jobs famously once said 'at Apple we don't sell technology we sell experiences'. With this camera it's the experience of using it that is so pleasurable. I just love looking through the viewfinder and pressing the shutter button!
I read a copy of "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson (from Amazon) which quickly weaned me off Auto which meant I produced some decent photos quite soon after I got the camera. (It's a great book- highly recommended.)
All is all the process of taking photos with the D3200 is so much more fun than a compact. I love it, and wouldn't be without it.

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.
