Nikon D5200 Price in US

The D5200 is Nikon’s ‘advanced beginner’ DSLR, and it is located in the middle of the company’s most current APS-C series, between the entry-level D3200 and the D7100, which is aimed at photography enthusiasts. The D5200 has a resolution of 24 megapixels (the same as its APS-C stablemates), an articulated rear LCD, and more physical controls than the D3200, but it does not have the dual-dial interface or the professional-grade autofocus system of the D7100, which is designed for a significantly higher market and offers significantly more personalization options.

The exterior of the D5200 is almost identical to that of its predecessor, the D5100. The only external differences include a dedicated drive mode button on the top plate of the D5200, stereo microphone grills atop the pentamirror (similar to those found on the Canon EOS 650D), and a slightly redesigned rear multi selector. Internally, the D5200 is virtually identical to the D5100. The most important improvements to the D5200 can be found “under the hood.” It is impressive that many of features are inherited from higher-end Nikon DSLRs. These include a 39-point autofocus system with 9 cross-type sensors and excellent frame coverage, which was taken from the D7000, as well as a 2016 pixel RGB color-sensitive metering sensor. The well-implemented Auto ISO function from the D7100 is carried over to the D5200. This feature is connected to the focal length that the lens is currently set to.

Although the D5200, D3200, and D7100 all have a resolution of 24 megapixels, the D5200 has a larger extended ISO range than the D3200 (25600 vs. 12800), and it also has a quicker continuous shooting rate (5 fps vs 4). And in contrast to the D7100, the D5200 retains the usage of an anti-aliasing (AA) filter, despite the fact that, as we demonstrated in a side-by-side comparison in our review of the D7100, the D5200 gives up very little in the way of detail in comparison to its more costly older sibling.

The D5200 is capable of recording Full HD videos with a resolution of 1920 by 1080 at up to 60i or 50i (depending on whether the camera is set to NTSC or PAL), but this mode crops the sensor area in the center. The more traditional frame rates of 30p, 25p, and 24p all make use of the entire width of the sensor. When shooting in manual mode, you will have the opportunity to exercise limited control over the aperture, but not the shutter speed or ISO. In addition, a stereo sound meter enables you to change the volume of either the internal mic or an external mic, such as the ME-1 stereo microphones that are available as an optional extra.

The D5200 has improved processing capabilities in comparison to its predecessor, the D5100. The EXPEED 3-branded CPU from Nikon is advertised as having a greater speed, better color reproduction, and superior noise suppression. The on-screen user interface of the D5200 has also been upgraded with a newer, more streamlined design. It now displays more information in a way that is more rational. This is desirable for a compact camera that has a limited number of controls on the exterior since the majority of the user interaction is required to take place on the back screen (and lots of button pressing).

Additionally, the D5200 is compatible with Nikon’s WU-1a Wi-Fi device, which can be attached to the camera through the accessory terminal and enables photographs to be wirelessly transferred to a smartphone or tablet computer in order to be uploaded to social networking platforms. A remote control function for the camera, complete with a Live View display, may also be accessed using this device.
