  • 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.
  • 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 respons...
  • 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 mag...

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...
  • 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

  • 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...

Nikon D3200 review - At just £279 it's a bit of a bargain

24 July 2012
  • Excerpt: The Nikon D3200 was the compnay's budget DSLR launch for 2012, and it was good enough to instantly make the older D5100 obsolete. Despite now being over three years old and being superseded twice, it's still widely available from major retailers.
