Nikon D5200 - A solid performer in the making

Labeling the camera as the one optimized for creativity and streamlined for flexibility, Nikon sets a new bar for mid range DX- Format DSLR Cameras with its D5200 that sports a CMOS Sensor with 24 million pixels and introduces a brand new 24.1 one of a kind megapixel sensor. A photographer’s heart is sure to skip a beat, comprehending that this digital camera has a 39-point AF and 2016 pixel RGB Sensor.

Resemblance or Inspiration?
While Nikon D5200 may seem a replica of its predecessor -D5100 to the naked eyes and hands, it is a little lighter and smaller, when compared. A few clicks and you will realize that it is a unification of Nikon D7000, D5100, and D3200.

More than Numbers
In an attempt to lure the creative minds, the HD-SLR camera ups the ante by introducing a number of features, awakening the photographer in you. Neither darkness nor positioning can hinder you from capturing your memories, now. Without being concerned about the position of the object, you can shoot from anywhere. Thanks to its 921,000-dot Vari-angle display, all that you need to do is hold the camera appropriately. 

The other most common problem that we succumb to, exposure to darkness and extreme brightness, while clicking, is put to rest. An in- built HDR allows you to click two shots at different exposures and renders a beautiful image, combining the two. Let your creative juices flow as you experiment with a number of built- in effects and filters that it encompasses. With its 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS image sensor and the NIKKOR Lenses, the camera promises real- life clarity attending to every detail.

In an era of social networking sites when likes and shares means the world to one, Nikon D5200 reckons with the need of the hour  and offers you with an Optional WU-1a Wireless Adapter for Wi-Fi that makes it possible to transfer your favorite images to Smartphone or tablet, instantaneously.

Nikon D5200 redefines video recording with its Full HD 1080P 60i since it captures moving objects perfectly along with face priority detection and takes into the picture around 35 faces in a scene. Detailing is at its best with the D-lighting capture for high – contrast scenes.

The Camera also offers a free accessory- a remote control that makes the most complex shots seem easier. For amateurs, there are varied options wherein you can choose to click objects moving predictably or rather even unpredictably. Besides, the camera also allows you to catch objects you never thought was possible in instances where it could not be framed in the viewfinder.

With D5200, Nikon once again proves why it is the most trusted brand other than Canon for photographers. While the camera could have innovated more with a touch screen for the LCD rather than serving to be an amalgamation of its precursors, it does not fail to impress one with its special features, filters, sensors and lenses and accomplishes the objective by compelling a photographer to go for a click. While amateurs may like it for the control it offers, experts may be enthralled to exhibit their artistry with the detailing it offers.
