  • Summary: The Nikon D3200 is a fairly basic DSLR. While there are drawbacks to not having features like an articulating screen or Wi-Fi connectivity, in dropping those features, Nikon has put great image quality within reach of more budget-oriented shooters.
  • Pros: The D3200 provides great image quality at a good price.
  • Cons: The camera lacks many of the connectivity features of its competitors.

Nikon D3200 Camera Review – An Exceptional Entry-Level DSLR

Technology X
6 May 2013
  • Summary: Overall we had a good time with the D3200. It’s a fast snappy fun camera with a few pet peeves like no auto exposure bracketing and the convoluted menu – things that even cheaper DSLRs and point-and-shoots do better. Of course we can’t forget the mono-microphone’s poor sound quality. When it comes down to quality and performance however, for the price this camera does it all…in spades. The high 24-megapixel count complements the big sensor size perfectly.

D3200 Review

  • Excerpt: fixed typos: 10/12/12 Nikon D3200 Review Nikon Invents a New Term, the HD-SLR Add a comment or send Thom feedback on this article. I know this annoys some of you who just want the facts, but I personally don't think that you can fully understand a product without understanding a bit about how it's being presented by its maker.
  • Pros: Needs Better Lenses . This a V8 engine in a small car designed for a flat four., Video is wobbly. Rolling shutter problems are still visible, though not as bad as the D3100. Talking head videos are okay; roller blade action, not so much., Missing Features . Bracketing, HDR, panorama seem to be obviously missing.
  • Cons: Needs Better Lenses . This a V8 engine in a small car designed for a flat four., Video is wobbly. Rolling shutter problems are still visible, though not as bad as the D3100. Talking head videos are okay; roller blade action, not so much., Missing Features . Bracketing, HDR, panorama seem to be obviously missing., Good AF. Like the D3000 and D3100, the AF system is decent, even with Live View for stationary subjects, but especially with the central sensor with moving s...

Nikon D3200 with 18-55mm VR lens

CNET
2 October 2012
  • Summary: A solid if unexceptional entry-level dSLR, the Nikon D3200 should still please most folks looking for an upgrade from their point-and-shoots.
  • Pros: With reasonably fast performance and very good photo quality, the Nikon D3200 delivers what you expect from a dSLR.
  • Cons: The camera's lackluster feature set, some underwhelming design changes, and photos that don't necessarily surpass its predecessor may disappoint.

  • Summary: Optional accessories include a $20 wireless remote and a $60 USB dongle that can beam photos wirelessly to your Android or iOS smartphone or tablet. On the downside, the LCD panel is static and won't flip out or swivel. However, a movable screen lets you see what you're doing with odd-angle shots like when shooting above a crowd.
  • Pros: Ultra-high-resolution, 24-megapixel sensor, Compact and lightweight, Shoots 1080p full HD video with manual control
  • Cons: Overall image quality no better than lower-res cameras, Huge resolution means huge files, Sluggish autofocus in Live View and Movie mode

Nikon D3200

  • Conclusion: We've been fans of most Nikon entry-level digital SLRs since the D40 debuted back in 2006. As the latest addition to this popular line, the Nikon D3200 increases the resolution significantly with a 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor. Do consumers and novice photographers really need that much resolution? Probably not, but it's there if they want it, allowing extreme crops without losing much detail.
  • Pros: Compact, comfortable and highly portable body, Good ergonomics, with even more well-positioned external controls than the D3100, Slightly larger, more comfortable handgrip with better shutter position for easy access with forefinger, Quick and quiet shutter mechanism begs to be pressed, Gorgeous detail from high-resolution 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor, EXPEED 3 image processor keeps camera humming along, Produces good images even in low light at high ISOs, Improved auto...

Nikon D3200 Review: High Resolution

Digital Camera Review
14 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Announced on April 19, 2012 and available in the marketplace at the end of that month, the D3200 is Nikon's latest generation entry-level DSLR. While the D3100 remains on Nikon's website as this is written, the D3200 provides some significant performance enhancements over the older camera for only a $50 increase in MSRP.
  • Pros: Good video and still image quality, Good shutter lag, 24.2 MP sensor permits aggressive cropping or very large prints, On the light/compact end of the scale for DSLRs
  • Cons: AF acquisition time with kit lens can be a bit slower than average in some instances, 24.2 MP sensor produces somewhat noisier high ISO images than lower resolution sensors, Video capture is advertised as "one touch," but only after switching to live view and acquiring focus first
