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.
On the outside, the D5200 is virtually identical to its predecessor, the D5100, with external changes limited to a dedicated drive mode button on the D5200's top plate, stereo microphone grills atop the pentamirror - like on the Canon EOS 650D - and a slightly redesigned rear multi selector. The D5200's more significant upgrades lie 'under the hood'. Impressively, many of these are inherited from higher-end Nikon DSLRs, including a 39-point AF system with 9 cross-type sensors and ample frame coverage, and a 2016 pixel RGB color-sensitive metering sensor, both taken from the D7000. The D5200 borrows from the D7100 a well-implemented Auto ISO feature that is tied to the lens' current focal length.
Although the D5200 shares the same 24MP resolution as both the D3200 and D7100, the D5200 offers a higher extended ISO range compared to the D3200 (25600 vs 12800) and faster continuous shooting (5 fps vs 4). And the D5200, unlike the D7100, continues to use an anti-aliasing (AA) filter, although as we demonstrated in a side by side comparison in our D7100 review, it gives up precious little in terms of detail to its more expensive big brother.
For video shooters, the D5200 can record Full HD 1920 x 1080 movies at up to 60i or 50i (when set to NTSC and PAL respectively), although this uses a central crop of the sensor area. More conventional 30p, 25p and 24p modes use the full width of the sensor. In manual mode you have the option to take limited control of both shutter speed and ISO, but not aperture. And a stereo sound meter lets you adjust the level of either the built-in or or external mic, such as the optional ME-1 stereo mics.
The D5200 gets a processing boost over its predecessor. Nikon touts its EXPEED 3-branded processor as offering higher speed, better color reproduction and improved noise reduction. The D5200 also has an updated, cleaner design to the on-screen user interface that presents more information in a more-logical layout. This is welcome on a small camera with relatively few external controls since much of the user interaction is, by necessity, via the rear screen (and lots of button pressing).
The D5200 also supports Nikon's WU-1a Wi-Fi unit, which plugs into the camera's accessory terminal and allows images to be transmitted wirelessly to a smartphone or tablet for uploading to social media. The device can also be used as a remote control for the camera, complete with Live View.
- Great camera for beginners at a reasonable price.
- Lightweight so it isn't a hassle to carry around with you
- Amazing image quality
- compatible with a huge range of DX frame lens
- The rotating screen makes it easy to frame interest shots and makes it easier to see if you are in frame when filming vlogs.
- Cannot film at true 1080p at 60fps, instead it is interlaced meaning that it simply films at 30 frames and duplicates them. (1080i)
- You can't adjust aperture size whilst in video mode, which makes it difficult to film when moving through different light conditions
