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

Nikon D3200 Review

6 July 2012
  • Summary: If you are someone eager to get your hands dirty with photography, but cannot afford to spend a lot, the D3200 is a great starter camera. The AF-S 18-55mm VR lens is not all that bad either in good lighting, but at the end of the day, you get what you pay for.
  • Pros: Cheap price, 24 megapixel sensor renders low noise and great detail, Good movie quality
  • Cons: ISO performance tops out at 6400, Flash performance not good for close-up shooting, Tiny body doesn�t balance well with pro-grade lenses

Nikon D3200 Review

Digitaltrends
25 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Nikon is to be lauded for offering a 24.2-megapixel DSLR for less than 700 bucks. This is first and foremost a still camera, and as such does a very solid job. It is clearly an entry-level model without the sophisticated tweaks enthusiasts crave such as bracketing, more cross-type sensors, HDR and even faster response. Yet for what you get, this one is easy to recommend — just be sure you’re well aware of its negatives.
  • Pros: 24-megapixel APS-C sensor, High-quality stills, 4 fps and full HD video at 30 fps
  • Cons: Kit lens doesn’t do the sensor justice, Noisy videos with high ISOs

Nikon D3200 with 18-55mm VR lens

CNET
4 June 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: With a huge leap that almost doubles the resolution of its predecessor, the 24 Megapixel Nikon D3200 becomes the highest resolution DX body in Nikon's DSLR range. For its entry-level offering that's quite a bold statement from Nikon and one that puts the D3200 at the top of the budget DSLR pile in terms of resolution at least.
  • Pros: 24 Megapixel CMOS sensor., 912k pixel LCD screen., Guide mode for novice photographers., 1080p24/25/30 video with exposure control., Manual audio level control with meters.
  • Cons: No auto exposure bracketing or optical depth-of-field preview., Complicated menu system., Underused command dial., No built-in AF motor so can't autofocus with non AF-S lenses., No live histogram.

DP Review
25 April 2012
  • Summary: The Nikon D3200 is a no-nonsense, ‘traditional style’ entry-level DSLR that is a solid performer on all levels. It doesn't offer much in terms of innovative features, but comes with the highest pixel-count in its class and good image quality across the ISO range. Just consider getting some high-quality Nikkor glass with it to make the most out of its high pixel count.
  • Pros: Good detail at low ISOs (with good lenses), Well-balanced noise reduction at higher sensitivities, decent noise levels, Relatively low raw noise levels allow for custom processing in raw conversion, Good quality video output, Decent buffer and burst rates for this class of camera, Overall responsive and snappy performance, Intuitive user interface and control layout, Sizeable and comfortable hand-grip, Customizable Fn-button, External microphone socket, Control over s...
  • Cons: Slightly soft output at a pixel-level, Tendency to slightly overexpose in bright contrasty conditions, Unintuitive setting of aperture in movie mode, No 'live-preview' of aperture changes in live -view, No dedicated ISO button (but you can set the Fn-button to control this setting), Live-view magnification not very precise, Slow contrast-detect AF in live-view
