It may be an entry-level camera, but the Nikon D3200 features a 24.2-million-pixel sensor that could provide the sort of image quality demanded by enthusiasts. Nikon’s latest camera releases are a sign of things to come, with the company throwing down a weighty megapixel gauntlet to its rivals. Like the D3100, the new D3200 has a small body and a simple, beginner-friendly layout, being aimed at those trying out a DSLR for the first time, and ‘the family’. Using full-resolution, 12-bit raw+JPEG capture, a 4GB card is full after approximately 125 shots. Like the Nikon 1 cameras and the professional Nikon D4, the D3200 features the company’s latest Expeed 3 processor, which provides high-speed operation and enhanced image processing. Like the D3100, though, the D3200 has a guide mode to walk beginners through some photographic basics.
There are some neat accessories available separately for the D3200, including the ME-1 microphone and the WU-1a wireless mobile adapter.
The image processing that creates a JPEG file, and certainly on an entry-level camera like the D3200, is designed to produce a bright and punchy print-ready image. JPEG files receive a degree of tonal compression, noise reduction, colour alteration and sharpening, all of which make an image look good straight out of the camera. The above image, taken at ISO 200 in good light, shows the difference in overall quality between raw and JPEG.
Lightweight does not mean poor quality, however, as the D3200’s body is a sturdy, plastic construction with faux leather hand and thumbgrips, just like the D5100, which is the next model up in the range. With little direct access to key controls on the body, most (including white balance, autofocus and metering) are instead found via the ‘i’ button in the quick menu.
Like all Nikon DSLRs, the D3200 uses the standard Nikon F mount, so it is compatible with a host of lenses. Given that the target market for this camera is ‘beginners’, most users are likely to stick to auto white balance.
All the white balance settings can be tweaked, although a quicker method for precise colour is taking a manual white balance reading. As on the D3100, the D3200’s TTL metering makes use of a 420-pixel RGB sensor to provide information from the scene for the metering modes. A camera with 24.2 million pixels on an APS-C-sized sensor is bound to impress us with its ability to resolve detail, and the D3200 does not disappoint.
As the camera uses the company’s latest Expeed 3 processor, we would also have high hopes for its ability to handle noise effectively. It is a pleasant surprise, then, that despite the increased number of pixels, performance in low light is still good. As an entry-level model, the D3200 uses a simplified Multi-CAM 1000FX autofocus sensor with 11 individually selectable points.
When using the viewfinder, the AF system works on a phase-detection basis, with the active AF point illuminated red in the viewfinder (chosen via the D-pad in single-point mode). Other options include 3D tracking (great for videos as well as still images), dynamic area and auto, all of which use the 11 points to gather focus information.
The screen is bright enough for live view, image playback and to navigate the menu, but users may struggle to see it clearly in bright, direct sunlight. As the D3200 features a new high-resolution sensor, I have been particularly interested to establish its dynamic range. In raw files, it looks as though images show a wider dynamic range than those from the D3100, by around 2EV. The next most affordable APS-C-format camera with a like-for-like pixel count is Sony’s Alpha 65.
Nikon insists that the D3200 does not replace the D3100, so this older and more affordable camera is an alternative.
The nikon D3200 handles in a very similar way to the less expensive D3100, so the extra money is really paying for the increased pixel count.
The retouch menu offers a host of in-camera edits, including D-Lighting, trim, monochrome, filter effects, straighten, distortion control, perspective control, selective colour and image overlay. The power of the built-in flash can be controlled in auto TTL using exposure compensation from +1EV to -3EV, or manually from full power down to 1?32 power. The WU-1a may well be the standout accessory given that it was launched alongside the camera, but there are many other useful compatible accessories.
The direct control accesses single-frame shooting, as well as the 4fps high-speed burst, self-timer, delayed remote, quick-response remote and quiet shutter release. Live view offers a good alternative to the viewfinder, providing up to 20x magnification for precise focusing and continuous contrast-detection AF in video recording. That has got to be one of the most dissapointing and worthless reviews of any piece of euipment I have seen in many many years. For a camera of the cost of the Hasselblad I would have expected something more in-depth and substantial.

The Nikon D3200 is Nikon's newest replacement for their least expensive DSLR, 2010's D3100, which was and still is a very good and inexpensive camera. While not as fast or as distracting as Nikon's professional cameras, the D3200 has as much or more resolution than any Nikon professional DSLR! The D3200 has more than enough speed for chasing kids, school sports and theatre, and far more pixels than anyone will ever need. While I cover all the more expensive Nikons which are of interest to hard-core photographers, when my friends ask what camera to get, it's always this inexpensive D3200. The D3200 is the first DSLR to have so much resolution that it actually has more resolution than the lens with which it ships. Unlike the earlier D3000, the D3200 has more than enough DSP (processing) power to pull off all of its tricks. It adds a new MOVIE REC button near the shutter and a much higher-resolution but same-size 3" LCD as the D3100. The D3200 has more resolution than any DX DSLR on Earth, or anything from Canon at any price, but no one cares anymore.
With no built-in AF motor or aperture feeler for manual-focus lenses, it only autofocuses with AF-S and older professional AF-I lenses, same as Nikon's other cheap DSLRs.
Older screw-type AF and AF-D (non AF-S) lenses expose and work perfectly otherwise, but you'll have to focus them by hand.
White Balance modes: Auto, incandescent, fluorescent (7 types), direct sunlight, flash, cloudy, shade, preset manual, all except preset manual with fine-tuning.
0.80x magnification with 50mm lens (smaller than FX cameras because it's 80% of a smaller area). Standard Gen 2 Picture Controls (Standard, Neutral,Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait, Landscape). Optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter ($59.95, late May 2012) works only with Android doo-dads, making it useless for most of us. If you get it to go, it claims to send images wirelessly to these Android doo-dads, and remotely monitor and shoot images for surveillance and unattended hidden operation.


Is the WU-1a really so poorly designed that we have to leave the door open when it's connected? Technically it's unbeaten, and ergonomically it's as good as a camera with as few real buttons in this price range gets. Used properly, the images look great at any ISO, and auto white balance is wonderful under almost any light. The D3200's finder is bright and sharp, specially with the slow kit lenses for which it is optimized.
Better than the D800 and D800E, the AF zones are indicated with light-up LED spots that don't interfere much with the subject you're trying to see. The finder certainly isn't as huge as an FX camera or as big as the D7000 because the D3200 uses a hollow pentamirror instead of a glass pentaprism, which is exactly how I'd want a lightweight camera to work. Better than the D800 and D800E, the D3200 shows exposure compensation to thirds of a stop on its in-finder bar graph. Set to its default AF-A and Auto-Area select modes, the D3200 figures out where and how to focus, and just does it.
If the D3200 isn't finding your subject behind distractions, which can be the case, you'll have to stop and go into menus to reset it to use just one AF area. The rear selector moves incrementally between areas with each click; a click does not slam the selected AF point al the way to one spot or the next. The D3200 has AF-S (single and lock), AF-C (continuous), and AF-A (automatic selection between the previous two modes) autofocus. I find that once I set an exposure compensation for any condition, that I get consistent exposures until the lighting changes.
Fill-flash exposures indoors at night give the usual black backgrounds with little ambient light and overpowering flash, as expected. Color rendition is superb; the D3200 uses all the same picture controls, with matching results, to all the other current Nikon cameras. You can set different color shift values for each white balance setting, except on the PRESET (manual gray-card) setting. New for this class of cheap DSLR is that it can select the slowest shutter speed based on zoom setting or lens focal length. The auto-selected slowest shutter speed isn't smart enough to set itself differently based on whether or not you have VR on or off. Better than my Canon 5D Mark III, my Nikon D3200 can correct lens distortion automatically as we shoot, and even better, we never have to load any lens profiles. Nikon does a great job with its inexpensive DSLRs — better than it does with its professional cameras today!
Press the exposure compensation button and the rear LCD lights magically so you can see to set it before you bring the camera to your eye. On rare occasion, I've somehow hit the [Lv] (Live View) button by mistake, which can waste battery power and presents me with a perplexing black viewfinder until I realize what happened. If I choose to set my Fn button to set white balance, I can't navigate down to the other info screen settings. Setting Fn button to select image size and Quality is pointless because you've got only one dial.
SMALL BASIC JPG files (3,008 x 2,000 pixels), the way I shoot my D3200, have a median file size of 700 kB, and can be printed at any size. By default, there is a stupid 1940s slide-projector playback effect as yo swap to other images. If you zoom-in with the YRGB histogram screen active, the histogram shows the values only for the area to which you've zoomed.
The LCD is covered with uncoated clear plastic, not anti-reflection coated glass as is the better LCD of my Canon 5D Mark III. Unlike fancier cameras, the battery gauge is only a 3-segment indicator that gives not that much warning when the battery gets low. The Nikon D3200 is the camera I recommend to everyone who asks what camera to buy for great photos of family, friends, sports, concerts, theater and action.

Earlier this year, we saw the FX-format (full-frame) D800 raise the bar with 36.3 million pixels, and it proved to be the best full-frame sensor we have tested so far. It begs the question whether the target user is ever likely to make the most of such a large number of pixels, and furthermore, whether the available kit lenses can do the sensor justice. Nikon is keen to illustrate that such large files enable the cropping of images while maintaining enough quality to produce a good level of detail. Using a high-speed UHS-I SD card, the continuous frame rate of the D3200 reaches 4fps for a five-frame burst, after which the buffer takes 7secs to fully clear and enable another full-performance burst.
This time around the guide has been enhanced and expanded for more in-depth advice, and is positioned on the shooting-mode dial for quick access. The ME-1 is attached via the external microphone input for improved audio quality over the in-camera microphone.
Viewed at 100%, it can be seen that the JPEG compression process causes a loss of shadow detail and less tonal information, that the smoothing from noise reduction impacts on the level of fine detail, and that colours are very bright and not always ‘lifelike’. Indeed, at 505g including card and battery, the camera equals the D3100 as the lightest in the Nikon DSLR line-up. Interestingly, though, other regularly used controls do get a direct-access button, including drive mode, for which high-speed shooting and quiet shutter are available.
By default, auto image rotation is deactivated, and portrait-format images must be rotated manually. This is achieved in the same as on any other Nikon DSLR, via the main menu, which is a little slower than some other systems. The metering sensor holds its own among the immediate competition, but cannot match the sophisticated RGB sensors of the more expensive Nikon cameras.
We show the section of the resolution chart where the camera starts to fail to reproduce the lines separately.
Using the 18-55mm VC kit lens, at ISO 100 the camera reaches the 30 marker on our resolution charts, which is equivalent to class-leading APS-C-format cameras such as the Sony Alpha 77 and even full-frame models like the Canon EOS 5D Mark III. The first thing to note is that the native sensitivity runs from ISO 100-6400, like that of the Nikon D800, which uses the same processor, and the range can be extended up to ISO 12,800. Only the extended ISO 12,800 setting should be completely avoided, as it demonstrates a severe drop in image quality with obvious luminance and chroma noise littering the frame. These points are in three groups in the central portion of the frame, with the centre point being a more sensitive cross-type.
Handily, in this mode the AF point can be set to anywhere in the frame, which is great for off-centre subjects.
It is a 3in LCD type with 921,000 dots, which is a big improvement over the 230,000-dot screen of the D3100, although it is not articulated like that of the D5100. The viewfinder is a pentamirror type with a 95% field of view and 0.8x magnification, which is the same as on the D3100.
Continuous AF is available via the contrast-detection system, which is very handy for keeping up with moving subjects.
For instance, we expected the dynamic range of the D800 to be narrower than its predecessor, but it turned out to be even more extensive despite the huge increase in pixels (and therefore smaller photosites).
This makes a dynamic range around 13EV and represents a great improvement, and close to the performance of cameras higher up the range. Both this and the D3200 have plastic bodies, and the handling is quite similar – both lack a top LCD screen and have no direct access on the body for many key controls. The build and handling of the two are very similar, with the big difference being the new sensor in the D3200, which is so impressive in terms of resolved detail, control of noise and dynamic range.


However, in the long run, such a high resolution will be as likely to frustrate the ‘family’ user as give them pleasure once all the disk space is taken up on their computer and external drives need to be purchased. Crisp and punchy images with a wide dynamic range can be produced on a large scale thanks to the high resolution.
Nikon recommends the ME-1, the small size of which complements the compact size of the camera. Handily, the mode is linked to the attached lens and the metered exposure of the current scene reflects in the on-screen aperture, shutter speed, white balance, exposure compensation or ISO. These include the ML-L3 infrared remote control, GPS unit GP-1, ME-1 microphone and MC-DC2 remote cord.
The only reason to pay $6,000 for a Nikon D4 is if you're a full-time professional sports and action shooter. The D3200 is smaller and quieter than Nikon's more professional cameras, which is a huge help when shooting candidly.
The fancier D5100 has been out longer so it sells for a little less, so if this is the case, by all means, get the D5100 instead. The D3200 can make fantastic images in the hands of someone who knows what they're doing, and has loads of internal processing power to accomplish everything it does very quickly.
The D800 and D800E only show half-stops, so they don't show when you've only got ±0.3 stops compensation set, which the D3200 does! The professional cameras can find a subject's eye and focus on it directly and instantly almost 100% of the time, while the D3200 usually, but not always, finds the subject in your frame.
Once you've selected to select which AF area is used manually, it's easy to use the rear selector to select them.
Honestly, the D800 and D800E have a slight green-yellow cast to their images, so I prefer the colors I get from the D3200!
When you use this feature (I always do), the D3200 will shoot at your selected ISO, and when the light starts to get dark, will automatically increase the ISO to maintain the slowest shutter speed you've previously programmed.
One cannot select an offset from the auto-selected slowest shutter speed as one can in the D4 and D800, but just like all other Nikons with this feature, you always can set the slowest Auto ISO speed manually wherever you like. Therefore with this option, you have to spin past all the options, and usually will get something wrong. IN fact, because it's more accurate and better looking than the LCD of my D800, D800E and D4, I prefer to shoot with my D3200!
If you're new to photography, the strongest advice I can give you from 45 years of experience is that its far more important to learn how to use what you've got, instead of confusing the issue by buying more lenses, as you're starting out. If you wish to make a printout for personal use, you are granted one-time permission only if you PayPal me $5.00 per printout or part thereof. I am a beginner and was thinking about getting this camera but have realized from your review it may not take long before i outgrow this camera and need to upgrade. So yes, effectively, plenty people print 'bigger than A4', pro-rata the cropped area being selected.I understand the downsides of greater Mpx also, but they are continuously being mitigated through improved sensor design, hence allowing us to access the benefits of higher Mpx at lower downside cost. Certainly this camera is at the low end of Nikon's range, but it's capabilities are nevertheless light years ahead of anything dreamed of only a few years ago. After some thinking I would have to agree with you, today's cameras are far advanced than previous cameras and may be better for me to invest in better lenses, you've certainly given me something to think about.

Alternatively, the D3200 may turn out to be a lightweight and cost-effective back-up for those who already own an enthusiast-level camera.
This matches the output of the best APS-C sensor currently available, which is used in the Sony Alpha 65, Alpha 77 and NEX-7. The WU-1a is a USB dongle for wireless communication between the camera and a smart mobile device, enabling wireless file transfer and remote camera control. In contrast, the unedited raw file lacks punch in areas of clarity and colour, while luminance noise is evident in shadow areas. In manual mode, holding down the exposure-compensation button switches the dial to aperture control rather than shutter speed. Another direct control activates live view, which handily allows magnification to aid precise focusing. For example, in sunny conditions I find somewhere between the cool rendition of AWB and warmer rendition of the sunny preset is best.
A single custom reading can be saved at any one time, while more advanced Nikon models allow up to four readings at any one time for quick access. All the colour modes can be adjusted for sharpening, contrast, brightness, saturation and hue, while the monochrome setting offers filter effects, which is fun.
As exposure compensation is easily altered via the direct control next to the shutter-release button, should the conditions be too bright or too dark, I kept to evaluative metering for most of this test. The higher the number visible in these images, the better the camera’s detail resolution is at the specified sensitivity setting. In these images, luminance noise is visible when viewed at 100%, but much less distinguishable at 50%, which is around the same file size as the D3100 at 100%. All in all, though, the level of detail that can be resolved and the ability to control noise by resizing images is where the D3200 shines. The more demanding action photographer is, of course, better served by a more sophisticated set-up on a more expensive camera. However, the performance of this AF is a tad slower than the phase-detection system, certainly in low light where the camera often hunts for the subject. A mini HDMI output provides direct connection to TV, and up to 20mins record time is possible for each video file. It seems that Nikon has worked hard on the sensor to be able to offer more pixels while improving dynamic range.
The main difference is that Alpha 65 is slightly more expensive, has a translucent mirror that enables faster frame rates and an electronic viewfinder in place of an optical type. It is a case of paying a little extra to get better quality images, but the resulting files take up much more space on the computer.
Perhaps the family photos may start making their way from the computer screen to the walls, or Nikon may just be surprised that the D3200 proves popular with ‘enthusiasts’ who opt to buy the camera as a lightweight back-up for their existing model. Avoid the awful old D3000 at any price, however the previous model D3100 is also a superb camera, and if you can find a new one at a low price, by all means, get the D3100 instead.
In fact, this great hyper-ISO ability lets one use the kit lens for just about anything in any light. On bigger cameras, this option allows you to use two dials, one for size and one for quality, but with only one dial, forget it.
These places have the best prices and service, which is why I've used them since before this website existed. I may look to get the D7000 instead which may mean a steeper learning curve but will suit my needs in the long term.
If you want to capture raw then you need to do so at the full sensor size - really big file size! My question therefore is, when measured in terms of the output has photography advanced by the same degree?
In either case, this is the most affordable camera around that offers such a high resolution. Being fussy, I often tweak the colour of images straight out of the camera to get them just right. This lens offers the most basic zoom range in the DX lens series, an equivalent focal length in 35mm terms of 27-82.5mm.
Just out of curiosity many people are criticizing the fact that the D3200 has too many pixels which results in larger file sizes but can this not be reduced in the settings or am i missing something? How much of your output will be limited by the camera's capabilities, indeed how much will even test the camera's capabilities?That is not meant to be a luddite's charter.
It is safe to assume, then, that any future replacements for models higher up in the series will at the very least feature the same sensor. Whether such a high pixel count in a camera of this level is able to produce good-quality images, however, is another matter entirely. These explain which exposure setting should be adjusted for the given scene, which is linked to the current exposure settings on the camera and what lens is attached.
Not only can files be cropped while maintaining a good level of detail, but if you reduce the print size from a full-resolution file to match a full-sized print of a camera such as the D3100, noise is less obvious. If you don't know what you're doing, you'll get soft images regardless of what camera you use. But if you have a fixed budget, I think there is much to be said for spending more on extra lenses rather than on a more expensive camera.One crucial area where all digital SLRs have taken a massive (and woefully underappreciated) step backwards compared to film SLRs is in the viewfinder. In short, higher resolution affords greater flexibility for cropping and high-quality printing. It is suitable for everything from candid portraits to sports, nature and wildlife photography, and the compact SWM (Silent Wave Motor) provides lightness, excellent handling characteristics, and smooth, quiet autofocus performance.Constructed from water-repellant, durable, ballistic nylon, this Nikon compact system case is ideal for storing your digital SLR camera, plus lenses and accessories. And no matter how many bells and whistles the D-SLR may have over the film camera, you must first capture the scene in your eye - it all starts with composition and seeing the picture, the camera really just gets in the way of capturing what you see.
