The Nikon D5200 Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens features a 24.1MP DX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 3 image processor to produce high quality imagery while delivering fast performance to all camera functions. The combination of these two technologies is a native sensitivity up to ISO 6400, which is then further expandable to ISO 25600. The processing speed of the EXPEED 3 also contributes to a fast continuous shooting rate of 5fps.

A 39-point autofocus system enables the D5200 to acquire precise focus quickly across the image frame, and nine cross-type points are centrally located to give even more accurate focusing abilities to critical subject matter. In regard to exposure handling, a 2,016-pixel RGB sensor is utilized by Nikon's Scene Recognition System to analyze both color and brightness values within a scene to best determine exposure settings as well as white balance, i-TTL, and also focus settings.

HD video recording is supported in multiple frame rates and formats up to full HD 1920 x 1080 at 60fps. Manual exposure control is possible during recording through modifying the shutter speed or ISO settings and continuous auto focusing is also possible when working with the full-time servo AF mode. Audio can be recorded using the built-in stereo microphone or through the use of an optional external microphone, both of which can be manually controlled across 20 levels during recording.

Image playback and live view monitoring is possible with the 3.0" 921k-dot LCD monitor, which features tilt and swivel capabilities for better use at high or low angles. For eye-level viewing, a pentamirror optical viewfinder is built-in for viewing and composing scenes quickly and intuitively.

The D5200 features a variety of built-in imaging technologies, such as Active D-Lighting and HDR capabilities, to further enhance the look of your imagery while shooting. Scene modes, Picture Control, and Special Effects can also be applied to imagery to give a more creative, aesthetic appearance to your work. For instantly sharing your photos and video, the D5200 is compatible with the WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter (optional) for wirelessly connecting your camera to an Android or iOS mobile device.

Included with the camera body is the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens, which is equivalent to a 27-82.5mm lens in the 35mm format. This 3x zoom range gives a highly usable range of focal lengths to suit most shooting applications. The lens construction has been optimized for DX-sized sensors and is a compact, lightweight lens that is ideal for traveling. A Silent Wave Motor provides smooth auto focusing while the incorporation of Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization helps to compensate for the effects of camera shake in order to produce a sharper image.

Imaging Technology
At the heart of the D5200 is a 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor and the EXPEED 3 image processor. The combination of these two technologies enables high resolution imagery with great detail and quality. The power and speed afforded by the image processor also provides high ISO performance up to an expandable range of 100-25600. Noise reduction technologies are employed during use to help render low-light photography with the utmost sharpness and clarity.
39-Point Autofocus System
A 39-point autofocus system, with nine cross-type sensors, is employed to acquire precise focus quickly and easily. The AF system is equally effective with both still and moving subjects and utilizes a unique 3D tracking system to detect and memorize the color of your subject to effectively track its movements.
2,016-Pixel RGB Sensor and Scene Recognition System
The exclusive Scene Recognition System paired with a 2,016-pixel RGB sensor is able to analyze color and brightness information within a scene to automatically determine precise exposure, i-TTL flash, white balance, and focus settings. By analyzing both color and overall brightness, imagery appears more naturally-rendered and detailed compared to purely measuring brightness values.
High Continuous Shooting Rates
The D5200 is capable of capturing full-resolution still images at a continuous rate of 5fps. This speed affords you the ability to easily track moving subjects or record fast-paced events. The optical viewfinder benefits this shooting speed by allowing you to more instinctively pan with your moving subject, whereas shooting in live view will render the shooting nearly silent for more discreet applications.
Vari-Angle LCD Monitor
The 3.0" LCD monitor features a vari-angle design, which allows you to tilt and swivel the monitor to better suit shooting from high or low angles. Its 921k-dot resolution provides high definition quality for more precise monitoring and image review. The menu navigation has also been simplified from past models, giving a more intuitive system of navigation through camera functions. Additionally, three background color choices are available: black, brown, and blue.
Full HD Movie Recording
The D5200 is able to capture Full HD video up to 1920 x 1080 with multiple frame rates up to 60i/50i. The vari-angle LCD monitor is well-suited to video monitoring and provides a natural method for composing scenes and following moving subjects. An HDMI type-C output is also available for connecting your camera to an HDTV for movie playback.

When working in manual mode while recording movies, exposure can be easily controlled through modifying the shutter speed and ISO settings. Continuous auto focusing is possible while recording when working in the full-time-servo AF mode (AF-F), which also provides subject tracking for better controlling your focus plane in fast-paced shooting situations. Face-priority AF is also available while recording HD movies.

A built-in stereo microphone can be used to record sound during filming, and can be controlled automatically or manually across 20 levels. These levels can be viewed before and during recording. Additionally, the D5200 supports the use of an external microphone for even greater control over your recorded sound with movies.
Built-In HDR and Active D-Lighting
For capturing images with immense contrast, built-in HDR is able to extend the D5200's native dynamic range capabilities by recording multiple exposures and blending well-controlled shadow and highlight exposures into a single image. HDR is most-suitable for stationary subject matter, whereas Active D-Lighting can suit moving subjects while still providing exposure and color control benefits.
Scene Modes, Picture Control, and Special Effects
16 different scene modes and six picture control settings allow you to further refine the look of your still imagery in-camera. Scene modes include: Portrait, Landscape, Child, Sports, Close up, Night portrait, Night landscape, Party/indoor, Beach/snow, Sunset, Dusk/dawn, Pet portrait, Candlelight, Blossom, Autumn colors, and Food. Picture Control settings include: Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait, and Landscape.

When working with HD movies, you can apply Special Effects to alter the look of your videos. These effects include: Selective color, Miniature effect, Color sketch, Silhouette, High key, Low key, and Night vision.
Compatible with WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter
The D5200 is compatible with the WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter to provide wireless connectivity to your camera. This enables you to instantly share imagery from your camera to Android or iOS mobile devices for sharing on imaging sites or through email. Additionally you can use your wireless device as a remote viewfinder and shutter release for taking photographs with your camera set at a distance.

    This is our first DSLR, and i am very pleased so far. Has only been a few weeks since we got it and still learning everything, but the quality of the photos and advanced options are great. The advanced options are also not too overwhelming even for the casual photographer.

      Comments about D5200 Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Black):

      Purchased because going to Namibia and film and processing (100+ rolls) for my trusty Nikon FTN would cost more than this package! Waited for a serious hobbyist Nikon that would resolve close to film at a reasonable price. I have been practicing with this camera and it is both intuitive and sophisticated considering its price point. ISO expansion is a blessing, sport mode allows rapid action shots, and the VR means I can shoot natural light most of the time. The video is a bonus and I will be experimenting more with that before I go. Light, Compact, and Capable! Excellent ergonomics for a left hand, left eyed photographer. A real winner.

        Comments about D5200 Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Black):

        I bought a couple of these for my studio interns because they were compatible with the stop-motion software we use. They are actually very good cameras for the price. We first purchased some Sony NEX-6 cameras, but they were less intuitive menus and did not work with the software.

        Tried some low-light work with them and they are pretty good up to ISO 1600. Wouldn't go past that, personally. They are well made and do the job I need them to do.

        My only complaint is that there is only one dial (shutter speed) and no dial for aperture. This is super annoying! I have to hold a second button and then use the dial...why not just make a second dial? Seems very counter-intuitive, especially for anyone buying this camera to learn with.

        This is my first DSLR or SLR for that matter. It took a while to get comfortable with all the settings and I am still learning, but the performance of this camera is exceptional when using the proper settings. We went online to view Nikon's video tutorials, which helped greatly. The camera we bought was only 18-55mm, which doesn't have the greatest zoom, but I'll purchase another lens soon.

        Comments about D5200 Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Black):

        This is my first Digetal SLR so I being a novice have little to compair with except the "point and shoot". To say that there is little to compaire. My "PaS" was a whapping 4 mps and digital zoom distorshin prone etc...
        I have not had this Nikon a month yet I have tried a number of types of shoots and whow what a difference. I find myself thinking about conposing my next shoots. The ease of the auto mode is great but being able to compinsate for veried externals is EXCITiING. I'm like a kid in a candy shop. I thought that I would have trouble catching on to the layout of buttons and the many thing that are related to ( eventhough I'm no where close to having a good idea )the process of thinking in the function and reasning behind the workings and functioning of the buttons and other controls then a novice ( that is what I am ).

        Since I am so new to this style of camera I will update when I have learned how to really use the device.

          I had an Olympus PEN EPL-1 for a couple years as my first DSLR. I upgraded to this with the recommendation from a Nikon friend and am so glad that I did. It takes better pictures, is simpler to use and feels more natural. I actually am so excited about the Nikon product that my Dad bought himself and my Grandma the D3200 package, one for each of them! I am so please that I have been recommended to this site and this product! I will be forever a Nikon owner from this point on!

            Comments about D5200 Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Red):

            Bought this camera to replace my old N50 Nikon.
            Lots of great features, easy to learn software logic. Has a very nice feel even with lots of plastic. The red is a great color, but the shell is very smooth and shiny. The black is more of a matt/pebble finish that some people may prefer. Really like the flip screen so I can close it up to keep from scratching it. Photo quality is great, kit lens works well but the mounting ring is plastic, not metal - seems cheap

                This unit had all the fatures my wife was looking for in a camera. She previously had my hand-me-down Canon EOS Rebel XSi. The features on this are so much more extensive and she is enjoying every bit of getting to know its abilities.

                  Upgraded from a Nikon D70. In addition to a 4-fold inclease in MPs, lens is VR and allows handhelds in lower light, one fewer dial, articulating and larger screen, terrific Red body, what's not to like. Glad I upgraded and looking foward to using it more.

                    Comments about D5200 Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Red):

                    This Nikon D5200 camera is a joy to use. It feels great in the hand and isn't overly heavy or cumbersome. The LCD screen is large and sharp. The pictures are easily deleted if for some reason you get a bad picture (which won't be the fault of the camera, trust me!). There is very little time delay in AF mode between button push and shutter click.

                    I've only just briefly checked out the different "scene," "effects," and other modes but so far they are very interesting and should prove useful.

                    There's really too much to go into here, but the bottom line is, this is a great camera. Plus, it comes in a very cool red color. Very cool indeed.

                    Check out B&H's video for a more in-depth review. It's a very informative video and well worth the time.

                    Happy shooting!

                      Comments about D5200 Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Black):

                      I use my Nikon D5200 with the 18-55mm lens for filming trains, although on occasion I will use it to film other things. The D5200 is the only camera I use on all of my rail fanning/filming trips. Although I have 3 cameras the 52' is the only one that I always use, for a number of reasons. The Viewfinder is great, its easily a high enough resolution so that all of your shots can be exactly how you want them. The wide angle lens allows me to capture the large dramatic scenes I often find on some of the routes I like to film and photograph the most. The camera is very easy to use, perhaps because I am used to Nikon's, so I will admit to a bit of bias there. However if you are used to Nikon DSLRs this should not be a big transition at all for you, as it's controls do not venture to far off from its sister models, like the D5100, or even the slightly more distant D3100. The colors are fantastic, the settings (like color balance, ISO sensitivity) are quite easy to change. I quite often find the D5200s tilting/panning view finder to come in handy, especially during photo shoots where I end up at an awkward angle in relation to my camera due to a crowded photo line. The camera has an AV in/out port, so if you are like me and you need an external mic this camera can support it. I really don't have anything to complain about with the camera, although the 55mm max zoom on the lens is a bit low, you can buy a telephoto lens and put it on the camera as long as its an F-mount.

                        Wanted to upgrade to SLR. A bit more than I wanted to spend, but do not regret purchase. Performs as advertised. You will want to upgrade lenses immediately, so look for a good bundle deal. Tough body, have dropped it twice already, still works fine.

                        Nikon is one of the best company in List of Camera manufacturers. But with the addition of new D5200 Digital SLR it get the edge. It include CMOS censor and can produce high quality image with the help of EXEED 3 image processor.Slightly Heavy, as it could be more lighter as compared to other nikon but keeping price in mind $ gram Nikon D500 is not a bad deal. With 24.1 mega pixel with high end resolution it can take best of the pictures. Another best thing is that it is having 170° Viewing Angle. With large display of 3". The CMOS sensor gives another edge to the features of this camera. So from my end its a must buy for the new comers in the field of camera and photography.

                          Comments about D5200 Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Red):

                          I feel that this offers the perfect balance of "bang for the buck" because it has some features that make it better than the entry level 3000 series but it is not terribly far below the 7000 series. Probably a better starter camera than the lower models because it is nice enough that you won't have to upgrade once you learn how to use it. I am glad I spent a little more and got this one because I truly believe I can grow into it.
