Nikon D5200 – A quick and easy-to-use DSLR
Armed with a 24.1 Megapixel sensor and Nikon’s Expeed 3 engine, the D5200 is a fully-equipped image making device aimed to provide the best in quality for beginners and more advanced enthusiasts. The D5200 is well suited to a range of uses and shooting conditions with an ISO range of 100-6400 and a stunning 39-point AF system that could be mistaken as coming from a more advanced and expensive camera.
Moving objects require a precise and accurate focusing system and this is one of the highlights of the D5200. The 39 point AF system easily snaps important subject matters into focus, leaving you with the joyful task of pressing the shutter and producing gorgeous portraits, action scenes, landscapes; or whatever else your heart desires. For the action lover 5 frames per second continuous shooting will provide you with the speed necessary to confidently keep you up-to –speed and capturing every single moment passing before your lens.
3 Inch vari-angle LCD screen – Freedom to explore compositionally
Frame your compositions from more adventurous and tricky angles with the use of the large vari-angle LCD screen. This gives you the freedom to shoot above your head, from down low and in cramped interiors and importantly for the videographer, capture smooth and steady footage in the Full HD resolution the D5200 affords.
The Full HD movie mode is brilliantly detailed and can be used in conjunction with the accurate autofocus tracking for smooth and sharp high-quality video footage, while the more serious videographer can attach an external mic to improve on the audio quality of your movie footage.
Brilliant for beginners
For those of us that are more familiar with the point and shoot friendly world of the compact camera, do not be afraid. The D5200 is well-suited to be picked up by the first time DSLR user, with its handy automatic scene modes and the very effective scene recognition mode which will determine the conditions of the shot you are trying to take and adjust the colour and brightness accordingly, producing beautiful pictures with remarkable ease.
