Nikon D5200 overview

  • 1Description

The Nikon D5200 DSLR Camera 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.

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.

    Nikon D5200 reviews

    D5200 DSLR Camera (Body Only) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 103.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from image resolution I got the camera two days ago and set up on my rooftop to shoot a sunset of the Dallas skyline. The image resolution was absolutely amazing and exactly what I hoped it would be. I've got six Nikon lenses and used the 18-55 f3.5 lens at f10 and 1/60th and compared the image to numerous others of the same scene using my 12mp camera. I was really impressed with the detail in this high contrast scene -- bright sunset clouds and dark city building and street lights. For a serious nonprofessional I would recommend this D5200 for its image quality. I haven't yet had opportunity to really check out the other functions. I'm a freak on image resolution and don't use it for video.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent image resolution I use the camera for landscapes and nature and do not use or care about video. My criteria for camera performance is image resolution and color accuracy. Of course budget is an issue and I'm stuck in the less than a thousand for body only. I've had the camera for a week and am really impressed with the quality of the images. They are better than I hoped. The camera is also easier to use than my previous Olympus, Leica and D5000. For the money I don't think you can get anything that will produce better resolution and color. I am more than pleased. I look forward to learning more about the D5200's capabilities.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Camera for the Price I bought this camera for my 14 year old granddaughter who is showing lots of talent in photography. I'm a Canon and Leica shooter myself but was very impressed by the quality of the 5200's images. Since she is learning photography I found the wide range of program settings ideal for teaching her about the effect of aperture, shutter speed and depth of field. I found the controls easy to use and intuitive once I read the manual. The dynamic range is admirable, especially compared to some of my earlier Canon DSLR's. I would highly recommend the camera for someone wanting to upgrade from a point and shoot to a DSLR camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best of the 5000 Series yet! The color accuracy and the sharp detail of the D5200 is stunning. See examples below. I've owned the D70, D60, D5000, and the D5100 (all purchased at B&H) and this is by far the best of them all. The autofocus is quick and changing the various settings is very easy. A couple of the reviewers have complained that there is no histogram when reviewing the pictures. If you go to the playback menu and chose display options you can select various options to be displayed, one of which is the histogram. To see the histogram press the down arrow on the wheel around the OK button. Each time you press you will see one of the options that you chose. The only thing that I wish this camera had is a watercolor special effect. The Sony RX100 has it and it creates some spectacular artistic images. Bottom line, the D5200 is awesome!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it. I always do a ton of research before buying gear, and I finally decided on the 5200 as an upgrade to the 3100. I've had it for about 10 months now and I have not regretted the purchase. The major upgrades I was looking for were better autofocusing and better IQ in low light situations. This camera delivers much better than the 3100. I've taken it on a New England vacation, done many portrait sessions, and a couple of weddings and it's performed well in all settings. The only con so far has been the relatively short battery life, but no biggie if you have a backup! For the price, it's worth the upgrade.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to learn, great photos Camera is great for photos or video. Very easy to learn and the flip out monitor screen is occasionally very handy. I got this over the D5100 for the bigger sensor and stereo sound with video. Battery life is much less as you would expect when using the lcd monitor or shooting video, so if you're not going to use the viewfinder get some extra batteries. i preferred the monitor when first learning the camera menus and functions but now that i'm more familiar I much prefer the viewfinder, and in this mode the batteries will last all day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the price This is a powerful little guy. Love that it offers 24 MP. For the price, I think it's the best dx available. Has a lot of extra 'hobbyist' settings, but also can set full manual and shoot similar to the more expensive dx models. I love it and am completely happy I went with this body.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelent camera I'm impress by the high quality pictures of this camera. I had the Nikon D40x, D5000 and the last one was the D3100 wish is an excellent one, especially with the color rendition. But as soon as I try the D5200 I felt a much faster camera with more resolution, very practical for cropping. The video is very good for a DSLR. The only down side is battery life. Is shorter than the D3100. BH gives you an extra battery and excellent service. If can go for it, you won't regret. I suggest to buy only the body and the Nikon 35 mm 1.8 Is a great combo. The pictures are amazing.
