Nikon D5200 Reviews


What the Big Guys are saying about the Nikon D5200

Before you buy Nikon’s latest DSLR offering take a look at some D5200 reviews…..

The Nikon D5200 is a great DSLR camera, with some excellent functionality. The 24MP Toshiba sensor has already impressed some of the experts and the 39-point auto focus and great video options make this a real contender for anyone thinking of moving up from entry-level gear to Enthusiast/Semi-Pro level. But what do the experts say? Here are some reviews from some of the reputable camera sites……

Hands-on Preview from DPREVIEW

“Its AF system should be its trump card here, at least if you’re interested in shooting rapidly-moving subjects, as mirrorless cameras generally struggle with focus tracking. Of course this advantage only holds while you’re using the optical viewfinder.

Overall though the D5200 looks like it should be a perfectly pleasant and capable little SLR, offering a specification that wouldn’t have looked out of place on a top-end SLR only a few years ago. We’re looking forward to getting it into our studio to see if it lives up to its promise.”

“Ever since Nikon put a 24-million effective pixel sensor in the D3200 we’ve been expecting this pixel count to reach a little further up the manufacturer’s SLR line-up. So the announcement that the D5200, which usurps the Nikon D5100 from its position immediately below the D7000 in the range, has a CMOS sensor with 24 million pixels wasn’t really a surprise.

However, some may raise an eyebrow when they learn that the D5200 doesn’t have exactly the same sensor as the D3200. The D5200 uses a new 24.1-million effective pixel sensor that has not been seen elsewhere and according to Nikon we can expect the new device to have a more extensive dynamic range.

Nikon has paired this sensor with its EXPEED 3 processing engine and in the D5200 this enables a native sensitivity range of ISO 100-6400, which is expandable up to the equivalent of ISO 25,600.”

“The trusty D5100 and D7000 have held sway over Nikon’s low-to-mid DSLR range for around 18 months now, but come December and there’ll be a new option driving a wedge right between them. The D5200 will still fulfill the role of a lightweight “advanced beginner” model and physically it’s the spitting image of the D5100, but at the same time it brings some fundamental and distinctly D7000-like photographic improvements to try to excuse its £720 (body-only) recommended retail price. (Update: that equates to around $1,150, but Nikon tells us that there’s no official US pricing or arrival date at this time.) ”

“This DSLR comes as a replacement to the D5100. The D5200′s improvements over its predecessor include a newly-designed 24.1-megapixel image sensor and an improved autofocus system. Aside from a new Expeed 3 image processor, users will also experience a whole new in-camera graphical user interface as well as an addition of an inbuilt stereo microphone. Capable of recording full-HD movies in 1080p, the camera does 5fps in burst mode shooting and sports a 921k-dot, 3-inch articulating display. ”

“Nikon D5200 borrows D7000′s 39-point AF system, introduces all-new 24-megapixel sensor

High-end features trickling down the product chain

Much to the chagrin of Nikon enthusiasts, the Japanese cameramaker’s third DSLR of 2012 has turned out not to be a successor to the D7000. Instead, we’re seeing a refresh of the D5100, which actually brings a couple of the D7000′s core strengths down to a lower price point and lighter form factor. The D5200 benefits from the same 39-point autofocus system as the D7000, including the 9 cross-type sensors in the middle, as well as the same 2,016-pixel RGB metering sensor. The latter will be responsible for delivering better automatic white balance and exposure values than you can expect from the humbler D5100.”

Expert Reviews

“Nikon has officially unveiled its latest digital SLR, the D5200, designed to offer a cheaper alternative to its high-end D-series models.

Based around a 24.1 megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor linked to an EXPEED 3 image processing engine, the D5200 has selectable ISO sensitivity from 100 to 6,400 expandable to 25,600. A new autofocus system provides 39 points of focus with nine cross-type sensors and a 2K-pixel RGB colour sensor linked to the Scene Recognition System is also included – something usually only found on high-end camera models.”

“ While the D5200 doesn’t have much in the way of built-in wireless connectivity, it is compatible with the WU-1a wireless adapter, which lets it transmit images to mobile devices. It can also use the new WR-R10/WR-T10 electromagnetic remote controls. The wireless remote can even be used to activate AF and movie modes when paired with the WR-R10 adapter”

“Overall, this digital camera should feel welcoming to D5100 owners. The resettled Drive button is the most significant change, and once you’ve become accustomed to this, you’ll have the advantage of an extra dedicated control to help stave off the menu system.”
