Nikon D3200 Overview

  • 1Description

The black Nikon D3200 DSLR Camera is a compact and versatile camera featuring a DX-format 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor and EXPEED 3 image processor. The sensor and processor combine to realize high-resolution imaging, notable low-light sensitivity to an expandable ISO 12800, continuous shooting to 4 fps, and full HD 1080p video recording capabilities. These imaging assets are complemented by an 11-point autofocus system, which provides quick and accurate focusing capabilities to suit working with a variety of subject types in nearly any lighting situation. A range of shooting modes and features are also available to help creatively accentuating your imagery, including a helpful Guide Mode as well as Picture Control settings for in-camera adjustment of the color and contrast qualities of your photos and movies.

For live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation, a large 3.0" 921k-dot LCD monitor is available and features a wide 160° viewing angle to better support working from high and low angles. Also enhancing the viewing and shooting abilities of the D3200, the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter can be used to provide Wi-Fi connectivity for wirelessly transferring imagery and remotely controlling the camera from a linked Android or iOS mobile device.

Included with the camera body are two versatile zoom lenses, the AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II and the AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED, which combine to realize a total 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 27-300mm. Both lenses utilize extra-low dispersion glass to reduce chromatic aberrations and produce sharp, clear imagery. Additionally, both lenses also feature SWM (Silent Wave Motor) AF mechanisms to deliver quick, precise, and quiet focusing performance.

A Nikon shoulder bag is also included to provide protection as well as a means to carry the entire camera kit.

24.2MP DX-Format Sensor and EXPEED 3 Processor
The 24.2 megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 3 processor work together to produce overall high image quality with notable detail, dynamic range, color accuracy, and low-light sensitivity to a native ISO 6400, which is further expandable to ISO 12800. The EXPEED 3 processor also enables a wealth of speed throughout the camera system, including support for full HD 1080p movie recording and a full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 4 fps.
Multi-CAM 1000 Autofocus Sensor
Benefitting the high image quality is an apt AF system that employs 11 distinct AF points to quickly acquire focus in a range of lighting conditions from -1 to +19 EV. Predictive AF tracking is available to maintain focus on moving subjects and Face-Priority AF can also be used when working in live view.
Full HD Movie Recording
Full HD 1920 x 1080p movie recording is supported in multiple frame rates up to 30 fps, as well as HD 720p and SD 480p in multiple frame rates, in the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format. During recording, full-time autofocus can be employed, with face-detection and subject-tracking capabilities, for ensured sharpness with a wide variety of subject types. A built-in monaural microphone can be used to record high-quality sound or, alternatively, a microphone input is integrated into the body design to support the use of an external microphone for enhanced quality and control over audio recordings.
Scene Recognition System and Exposure Metering
The intelligent Scene Recognition System with 3D Color Matrix Metering II utilizes a 420-pixel RGB sensor to evaluate and analyze all aspects within a scene, including brightness, contrast, subject distance, and the scene colors, to quickly determine an accurate exposure and white balance setting to best render the scene at hand. The information gathered is also checked against onboard reference images to ensure consistency from image to image in regard to exposure, white balance, i-TTL flash settings, and subject-tracking AF performance.
Body Design
The D3200 integrates a large 3.0" 921k-dot LCD monitor, which features a 160° viewing angle to better support viewing capabilities from high and low working angles. Alternatively, a bright pentamirror optical viewfinder is also integrated into the design for precise eye-level viewing and real-time monitoring of subjects.

A built-in pop-up flash is also available for additional illumination when working in low-light conditions and supports Nikon's i-TTL flash metering system. A hot shoe can be used, too, for connection and optional external flash for even greater lighting control.
AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II Lens
Bundled with the D3200 is the AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II; a standard zoom lens providing a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 27-82.5mm. Aspherical and extra-low dispersion elements are integrated into the lens' design to limit chromatic aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp, clear imagery throughout the zoom range. Additionally, a Silent Wave Motor is also incorporated into the lens to promote fast, quiet, and accurate focusing performance.
AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED Lens
Also included is the AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 82.5-300mm, covering telephoto to super telephoto perspectives. A Silent Wave Motor (SWM) focusing mechanism provides high-speed AF in a precise, smooth, and quiet manner to benefit recording movies. Two extra-low dispersion elements are incorporated within the optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations and improve overall image sharpness. Additionally, a Super Integrated Coating (SIC) has been applied to lens elements to reduce ghosting and flare for enhanced color neutrality and image contrast.

    Nikon D3200 Reviews

    D3200 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm and 55-200mm Lenses (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 211.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a good deal I purchased this camera kit mostly for taking pictures of my kids and family. I also want to be able to do photography as a hobby, nature pictures and whatnot. It's easy to use and fast to get up-and-running with a good basic couple of lenses. What I didn't like: I really wanted to choose a couple different lenses that would give me more flexibility with aperture, but you can't buy the body alone or pick a kit with lens options. Bottom line, all things considered, it's a great deal and quality camera kit with room to grow. I plan to purchase another lens or two to expand what I can do with it and am very happy with the purchase!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent entry level DSLR... I am an amateur enthusiast. I use it mainly for street photography, landscapes, cityscapes and sometimes portraits. The kit lenses and included filters seem to work very well. This package is a steal at B&H discount price. The camera seems to cooperate in all light situations with minimal grain at high ISO's. For me the pop up flash is useless. It hinders the transreceiver for my slave flash... Other than that I have no other complaints. Oh the software does not give me enough options to manipulate RAW format as are available in other brand's software. Overall, I am satisfied and will recommend it to others. I think B&H has the best package available.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent shots I've been shooting underwater for a couple of years and have been upgrading my camera selection and decided to choose the D3200 as my first DSLR. I still have a Canon S120 but this camera is amazing. It's light and fast to focus, which is a great plus when shooting moving things and I've been able to take stead shots in speeds as low as 1/13. Also recently took pictures inside a cave without a flash and the pictures were amazing. The only thing I noticed is the noise in pictures with ISO above 6400. But again, I just slowed the aperture speed and used ISO 1600 for well lit pictures. Since lighting is a major concern underwater, I'm very glad with my selection.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my new camera I purchased this camera for a beginner photography class. I love to take photos and have had many point and shoot style cameras but what I could do was limited. I love my new camera. I am still learning how to use all of the functions but it doesn't seem to difficult to learn. I wish there had been an instructional dvd as I learn better by watching an repeating. Ordering my camera was simple, the price for the camera and everything that came with it was great (and I did ALOT of shopping around)and I recieved it in a very timely manner.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Little Camera I had the opportunity to use the Nikon D3200 for a water rescue exercise. I wasn't sure if the camera would meet my needs since you have to manually adjust the lens...then it auto focuses. I was wrong! This camera is great for a couple of reasons. First, the pictures turned out amazing! It is very easy to use. Second, it is small enough that you don't feel like you're lugging around a camera. It fits nicely in your hand as you're moving to get the next shot. Very happy with it!! The only challenge, you do have to change lenses depending on what you are shooting...not a big deal when you realize this up front!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good camera, but poor lens The camera is very good, very easy to use and very intuitive controls. Live View is very bad, very slow to focus and in low light conditions does not work, do not know why the auxiliary light is turned off in this mode. The lenses that come with this kit are very fragile, the bayonet is made of plastic material. The lens 18-55mm is very bad, the focus is slow and very noisy motor, the front of the lens is too loose and has a lot of vibration, expect a better product from NIKON

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new camera This is my step-up from point-and-shoot to DSLR. My new Nikon is really easy to use in the auto modes. The pictures are crisp and clear with great color. I do feel like I have a lot to learn when it comes to using many of the features on the D3200. I'll take a friends advice and shoot, shoot, shoot. Looking forward to it. The one negative thing I noticed is that when shooting in low light when flash was used a lot the low battery warning was blinking after about 50 shots. My recollection was that a charge would last for over 400 shots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value in a Nikon Camera Package This product will be used by our local Historical Society to document events and capture images of historical items. This camera kit provides to lenses that will cover almost any shooting situation. Seeing the great special price on a Nikon camera was great. I do notice that it is not built as rugged as my D5000, but the price was much less, so I suspected that. The photos taken by this camera appear to be very high quality. The camera is very easy to use, which is a must, given many of the people using it are not real photographers but volunteers. All in all, a very good value for us.
