The Nikon D5200 is a high resolution, novice-level DSLR and update to the previous generation D5100. Key features include:
- Full-Featured Image Quality and Performace: It features a 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor for high resolution imagery. It has the Multi-CAM 4800DX autofocus sensor module that was originally seen in the higher end D7000, giving the user a fast, 39-pt AF system with subject-tracking and subject-identification. It has a normal ISO range of 100-6400, with the ability to expand that to 25,600 if needed. It has a continuous frame rate of 5fps, enabling the capture of fast action.
- Video-Enable HDSLR: The D5200 offers full HD 1080P video recording at up to 30fps, with the option to shoot at 24fps for a more cinematic effect. The built-in stereo mic with sensitivity adjustment enables quick and easy audio recording. For improved audio quality, you can plug in an external mic via 3.5mm input.
- Upgrades Over D3200: The high resolution 3.0" vari-angle rear LCD allows for flexibility when shooting in live view and image playback. The pop-up flash provides quick fill and supports the Nikon CLS wireless flash system, and the info screen during playback has a graphical interface which provides users with a high tech view of adjustments made.
