Colour: Bronze | Style: 18-55mm VR II Compact Lens Kit
From beautiful photos to smooth HD movies, discover new perspectives with the Nikon D5200 and explore your creative side. The third in this D-SLR series, the D5200 offers a huge leap in image quality.
The high resolution vari-angle LCD monitor empowers your vision with unique views. The 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor captures finely detailed images, and the advanced 39-point autofocus system is always on target. Nikon’s amazingly accurate 2,016 pixel light metering sensor ensures exact exposures in even difficult lighting conditions. You can render special effects for movies or stills in real time, and Nikon’s optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adaptor lets you send your creations straight to a compatible smart device for instant sharing.
Ideal for anyone with a passion for photography, the D5200 is an intelligently designed lightweight camera, with clear menus and superior ergonomics, making it a pleasure to manoeuvre and use.
Breathtaking Image Quality
The DX-format, 24.1-megapixel CMOS sensor captures beautifully detailed photos and movies. Combined with the outstanding optical performance of NIKKOR lenses, the high resolution delivers images with vivid colour and striking contrast, ensuring big prints of your photographs look superb and can be cropped without losing any detail.
High Performance Image Processing
The D5200 comes equipped with the EXPEED 3 image processor, also used in high-end models such as the D4. It provides high-speed operation and remarkably clear images with rich colour reproduction. Eyelashes and hair are rendered sharply and skin texture is reproduced more faithfully. Expeed also processes multiple tasks such as Active D-Lighting, high ISO noise reduction and continuous shooting without sacrificing speed or quality.
Shines in Low Light Situations
Enjoy the freedom that great low-light performance brings. The high ISO capability (100–6400 which is extendable to 25600) delivers brilliant shots in dark or poorly lit environments and produces sharp images of fast moving subjects. Setting high ISO sensitivity enables you to shoot at faster shutter speeds and capture pictures while avoiding image degradation caused by camera shake even in low-light situations or when shooting a moving subject. This superior high-sensitivity performance is also effective for D-Movie allowing you to record first-rate movies without the need for large-scale lighting equipment even when light is scarce.
Capture Fleeting Moments
The Nikon D5200 shares an AF system, metering sensor and scene recognition with the Nikon D7000 series, giving this camera a new level of performance and much enhanced image quality. The superior accuracy of the 39-point AF system and nine cross-type sensors delivers razor sharp images by maintaining focus on even the smallest subjects however unpredictable their movements may be. Meanwhile, the 2,016-pixel RGB metering sensor delivers precise metering for exact exposures and sends data to the camera’s Scene Recognition System to optimise auto exposure, focus and auto white balance immediately before the shutter is released. If the action speeds up, Continuous Shooting at 5fps means you won’t miss that fast-moving shot.
Amazing Images from Any Angle
Flip it, tilt it, turn it - explore your creativity with the D5200’s versatile high-resolution 7.5cm (3 inch), 921k-dot vari-angle LCD monitor. This swivel monitor gives you the ultimate freedom and flexibility to take great shots and movies from virtually any position or point of view including great self-portraits.
Captures More Detail
In-camera High Dynamic Range (HDR) processing captures more detail when you shoot in high-contrast lighting conditions. Ideal for stationary subjects, the camera takes two shots at different exposures during a single shutter release, and then combines them into one stunning image with natural contrast. If your subject is on the move, Active D-Lighting helps you retain the details in both dark and bright areas when you shoot images in strong light, or in backlit situations.
Distinctive HD movies
The superb combination of the high performing CMOS sensor and NIKKOR lenses allows you to record Full HD (1080p) movies with sharpness, clarity and fluid motion. With the flick of a switch, you can effortlessly alternate between shooting stills and movies with smooth recording (up to 60i/50i). Nikon’s highly praised live view autofocus has full-time-servo AF (AF-F) and subject-tracking AF that keep your subjects sharp, even when they are in motion. Face-priority AF can instantly detect up to a maximum of 35 faces in a scene. In combination with NIKKOR lenses, the D5200 delivers fast, accurate autofocus during video shooting.
Inspirational Special Effects
Expand your creative possibilities and achieve even greater originality by adding striking effects to your movies and stills. A range of special effects are available to use; for example, Selective Colour isolates any colour within the scene; Silhouette creates dramatic images with silhouettes of subjects against a bright background, and Colour Sketch creates colour outlines of the subject that are played back as a series of stills in a slide show. There are a total of seven effects and each mode can be applied in real time to images and movies through Live View so you can see exactly what your final creation will look like before you shoot.
By selecting a mode according to the scene, the D5200 automatically chooses the most appropriate settings to deliver a perfect image. Each mode optimises the camera settings, such as shutter speed, ISO and aperture to the situation you are shooting. Scene Modes like Sunset, Candlelight and Blossom allow you to capture amazing scenes which previously had been difficult to shoot.
Optional Wireless Capabilities
Share images that you are proud of by wirelessly transmitting them from your camera to an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet using the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adaptor. This means you can share your creations with friends via social networks and email for instant reactions. It is even possible to control your camera remotely from your smart device to help you take great shots without disturbing the subject.
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 D5200 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. 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.
Compose extraordinary shots with a creative twist, thanks to the inspirational Nikon D5200.
 Compatible with iOS and Android smart devices. This feature requires use of a dedicated Wireless Mobile Utility application that can be downloaded for free from Google Play and the Apple iStore.
 The focal length of 18-55mm has an angle of view equivalent to that of a 27-82.5mm lens in 35mm  format.

Remember that this is a DX camera so with some lenses they will only work as manual lenses, but I actually prefer manual lenses so all is good. All in all a fab camera for enthusiasts dabbling in photography but not professional. Also because it isn't full-frame the camera crops slightly, so say a 35mm lens will actually look more like a 50mm.
I literally can't think of any negatives of the D5200, I love it. It's also *amazing* in low light conditions!
Selection of pics are below, they were taken in all sorts of situations and lighting conditions. Lenses used are all Nikon, 50mm, 35mm, and 55-300mm. Naturally please don't use any without crediting me - duh.
Definitely get this camera if you want high-quality photos but don't have the budget (or arm strength) for anything 'higher up' or full frame.
In comparison vs the D3200 the D5200 image quality is almost identical. I can't see much difference between both cameras although the D5200 does edge on overall sharpness. Both cameras produce fantastic image quality.
Where the D5200 scores big over the D3200 is down to the auto focus. Whereas the D3200 was fine, it did struggle to focus quickly using zoom lenses, especially the 70-300 VR and the 16-85 in low light conditions. No such problem with the D5200 as it locks on to your subject and focuses far quicker due to its superior focus system.
Other pluses for the D5200 over its little brother:
Screen.. Same resolution but I like the fact I can move it for tough shots and also close the screen when storing my camera away for additional protection.
Frames per second. Continuous shooting in fine JPEG mode on the D5200 vs more of a stutter in the D3200
Scene modes are a nice touch but not a huge plus but an additional feature over the D3200
Additional menus in the set up.
Better video processing.
HDR and Bracketing, ideal for landscape shots.
Better internal graphics and slightly easier access options to image settings
Both cameras suited for beginners as there is auto and scene modes. Select your mode and press the shutter button and you will see a stunning image.
Pound for pound the D3200 is probably the better camera for value for casual photographers who want a dslr for the occasional family gathering or day out. Or someone frustrated with the image quality and low light performance of a point and shoot compact camera. D3200 a huge step up vs a compact camera and you will be amazed with the results..
Guide mode on D3200 very useful for the novice photographer.
D5200 is a superior all round camera and suited for both beginners and more advanced photographers who want to experiment a bit more. The auto focusing is the real big difference for me. Zoom, lock and shoot whereas the d3200 sometimes hunts and back focuses before you can shoot, therefore if you are trying to focus in a rush your shots could end up blurry as you are shooting before the camera has properly focused
Would choose the D5200 over the newer D3300 for the focusing system alone and flip out screen, and I would choose the D3200 over the D3300 as they are near identical cameras, although the D3300 is more gimmicky with the new Panorama feature. Not really worth the extra £250 in my own opinion. Not for an entry level spec camera.
Unsure of the benefits of the D5300 apart from the built In wifi and slightly bigger screen. I have the external wifi module and this works the same on the D5200 (and D3200). The d5300 supposedly produces sharper images than the D5200 but the difference should be small, but with sharpness you gain more image noise and I'm not sure it's worth the additional £200+ premium over the D5200. Perhaps a demo at your local camera shop?
For me there was no going back to the D3200 after receiving the D5200. After using the D5200 the D3200 does seem like a basic camera, and I recently sold the D3200 on flea bay due to lack of use
And finally, replace the kit lens.. Okay but you don't see the full benefit of both cameras. Get a decent walk around lens (18-105 or 16-85) and I can highly recommend the 50mm 1.8g prime lens as it produces fantastic portraits with vibrant colours.
D3200 more a dslr with stabilisers. Purely designed for the novice photographer with helpful tips. Camera is designed for people who are used to compact cameras moving into the dslr world and is designed for taking photos in live mode (using the LCD screen rather than view finder) You can't go wrong with this camera but it lacks features found on more expensive cameras.
D5200. Produces similar image quality to the D3200 but with additional features found in the more expensive Nikon cameras. Novices will find this camera easy to use in Auto and scene modes and more serious photographers will enjoy the additional features over the D3200.
