Nikon D3200 Review: Virtual Photography Studio Review


How can you take the perfect picture using a low-end camera? You cannot! Good photography needs a good camera. A good camera needs a thoughtful mind, not dummies, it needs an expert or a future expert.

A while ago we gave you the Canon EOS Rebel t3i review and now it’s time for another review on our blog. We got our hands on the Nikon D3200 camera and we put it to a test. We made a short review that we think might help you determine whether or not to get this or other cameras. Here are our thoughts on the Nikon D3200 DSRL camera. We hope our Nikon D3200 review proves helpful!

When compared to the Nikon D3100, the Nikon D3200 has the same autofocus system and viewfinder, but it’s got a brand new higher resolution sensor, a higher-resolution LCD screen and records 1080/30 p video.

Nikon D3200 Tech Specs and Review

The Nokia D3200 takes great, solid photographs. When it comes to color, exposure, tonal range and sharpness, the camera performed quite well. It does this because of what’s inside, so let’s take a look:  its digital sensor is a 24.2-megapixel CMOS (the 24.2mp feature is pretty impressive, as it is almost double that the previous model had), the sensitivity range is between ISO 100 (expanded)/ ISO 200 and ISO 6400/12800 (expanded). You’ll get 4fps with continuous shooting and a shutter speed of 1/4000 to 30 secs. It’s got optical image stabilization and you can choose from a wide range of Nikon D3200 lenses. The kit lens: 3.06x zoom, 18-55mm (27-83mm eq.)

The video quality of the Nikon 3200 isn’t too impressive. In good light the image quality is good, but in dim light, you get a lot of noise, but the HDR images come out pretty nice.

The Nikon D3200 has pretty much the same body as the D3100. It’s small and light, as is the viewfinder, unfortunately. The body is black with a tiny red line on the front and another thing that the design/feature folks got wrong is the autofocus points that only become illuminated when you half-press the shutter. This makes shooting in dim light conditions quite hard.

The great thing about features/settings when it comes to the Nikon D3200 is the addition of a programmable Fn button right under your left thumb. Set it and you’re able to control the image quality, white balance, ISO sensitivity.

No need for external batteries, the Nikon D3200 battery is pretty exceptional, offering up to 540 shots; the record button has been moved to the left, which in our opinion is a weird move. The top mode dial can be set between automatic, manual modes and semiannual modes. The SD card slot is set in a more accessible location and in addition to a HDMI out, it also has a USB connector, the connector for Nikon’s GPS module and a new jack for an external mic, which the D 3100 did not have. If you take a look at the Nikon D5100 vs D3200, you’ll see that the D3200 performs better, although there isn’t much difference between them when it comes to tech specs.

The Nikon D3200 price is the best price you will find for such a good camera. The D3200 is not cheapest cheap camera, but it is not too expensive either: $699.95 (with quality 18-55mm VR lens). You can find better prices, but you’ll have to look hard.
