1. A new DX-format CMOS image sensor, developed by Nikon with an effective pixel count of 24.2-million pixels, and the EXPEED 3 image-processing engine enable capture of high-quality images and shooting at high sensitivities
The D3200 is equipped with a new Nikon DX-format CMOS image sensor, developed by Nikon with an effective pixel count of 24.2-million pixels, and the EXPEED 3 image-processing engine. Its predecessor, the D3100, offered a pixel count of 14.2-million pixels and standard ISO sensitivities of ISO 100–3200. The D3200 surpasses the D3100 with regard to both with its significant increase in pixel count and support for standard sensitivities of ISO 100–6400 and a Hi 1 setting equivalent to ISO 12800.
In order to maximize the potential of the image sensor's 24.2-million pixels, the camera is equipped with the EXPEED 3 image-processing engine, which was developed exclusively by Nikon and represents the culmination of the extensive image-processing know how and technologies that Nikon has cultivated over its long history. This image-processing engine has been optimized for digital SLR cameras, and its capabilities for superior high-speed performance enable faithful rendering, vivid color reproduction, and expression of a broad dynamic range. For example, it effectively suppresses noise with advanced noise-reduction processing for still images captured at high sensitivities under dim lighting, all while preserving the definition and sharpness of the image sensor's 24.2-million pixels. Special noise-reduction processing designed especially for movies maintains crisp, clear outlines in movies recorded in low-light situations.
2. A refined Guide mode that is even easier to use
The D3200 is equipped with the Guide mode that was so popular with the D3000 and D3100. Guide mode displays instructions for shooting according to the situation or type of scene or subject, playing back and retouching images, as well as applying all types of settings in a manner that is more intuitive, making camera operation easier than ever before.
More assist images and text explanations of scenes added
The number of assist images, also built into the D3100, used to show the results users can expect from camera settings prior to shooting has been increased, and text explanations of scene details and application of settings have been added. Guide mode makes it fun and easy for users to capture the beautiful images they want, whether they choose a specific type of situation, such as Night portrait or Close-ups, or a technique they would like to apply, such as Soften backgrounds or Show water flowing.
New options added to Advanced operation
Advanced operation is one of the first choices available to users when Guide mode is activated. New options, including Capture reds in sunsets, with which the camera adjusts white balance, Take bright photos and Take dark (low key) photos, with which the camera adjusts exposure, and Reduce blur, with which auto ISO sensitivity control is used, have been added to Advanced operation with the D3200. These new options not only expand the range of scenes and situations with which users can effectively capture beautiful photos, but also provide a means for users to become accustomed to various camera functions and the results they achieve at their own pace.
3. A large and clear 3-in., approx. 921k-dot TFT LCD monitor with wide viewing angle for live view shooting
The D3200 is equipped with a live view button. By simply pressing this button, live view mode is activated. In live view mode, users can choose one of four AF-area modes: Normal-area AF, Wide-area AF, Subject-tracking AF, or Face-priority AF.
4. Equipped with the D-Movie function that enables recording of 1920 x 1080/30p full HD movies with superior picture quality
By simply pressing the movie-record button just above the shutter-release button, users can enjoy the D-Movie function that records full-HD movies with superior picture quality. Settings such as aperture value applied in Guide mode can also be applied to movie recording, and the ability to take advantage of the unique characteristics of each lens in the rich NIKKOR lineup, from wide-angle to telephoto lenses enable movie imaging expression that is only possible with digital SLR cameras.
The D3200 also offers Full-time-servo AF (AF-F), a focus mode with which the camera focuses continuously to keep moving subjects in focus with movie recording. It also offers Face-priority AF and Subject-tracking AF AF-area modes with movie recording. Face-priority AF is effective with recording of portrait-like movies, and Subject-tracking AF tracks a subject as it moves through the frame.
What's more, recorded movies can not only be viewed in the camera monitor, but they can also be edited using the camera. Unnecessary portions can be cut from the beginning and/or end of movie files, and individual movie frames can be saved as still JPEG images. With the D3200, movie editing operation has been improved. The Start point and End point options for movie editing are displayed on the same menu screen, enabling simultaneous trimming of unnecessary portions at the beginning and end of movies, and the results of editing can be previewed before the edited movie is saved. These improvements make editing simpler by giving users a better idea of the results they can expect. In addition, the D3200 also supports connection of an external stereo microphone, which enables recording of stereo sound with movies.
5. Support for collaboration with smart devices (Android) for wireless transfer and remote shooting
With use of the Wireless Mobile Adapter WU-1a (sold separately), Images captured with the D3200 can be transferred to smartphones, tablets, and other smart devices over a wireless connection, and smart devices can be used as a remote control for shooting with the view through the lens mounted on the camera and various shooting and settings information (live view display) displayed in the smart device screen (remote recording of movies is not supported). Collaboration between digital SLR cameras and smart devices provides new ways for users to enjoy shooting, viewing, and sharing photographs.

Comments about Nikon D3200 Black Digital SLR with 18-55mm VR Lens:
I am actually a bit staggered at how good the picture quality of this camera is. The pixel count is obviously high, but more than that, the dynamic range is wide. This means you can see more life in the shadows etc - marvellous. This camera is also quite good in low light, although obviously not as good as a full-size-sensor camera costing ten times the price. Don't just take my word for the high quality, check the well-respected DxO mark score - this supposedly "low end" camera has one of the highest picture quality scores of any APS-C sensor size camera at any price. Amazing!I find the kit lens is surprisingly good too. For the price, the quality is remarkable. Okay, you can get better, but only by paying a lot more.The autofocus is very good, although not as good as the system in the new D5200 and D7000. But perfectly adequate.The video is not as good as the still picture ability. The quality of the video picture itself is excellent, but the autofocus struggles a bit with video, and of course the sound of the autofocus gets recorded on the video. Overall, for picture quality - which is of course the most important thing! - this camera is stunning value for money. I believe you will be delighted considering the low price. And just think, ten years ago you could not get this quality even if you spent ten thousand pounds! By the way, I am a very experienced photographer who has used this camera a lot for pro model shoots etc, so I feel I know what I am talking about. All the pros I show this little camera to are pretty stunned at how good it is given that it costs only a fifth or a tenth of their pro kit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A very competent DSLR
About Me Events, Portrait, Professional, Weddings
I use all Nikon professional cameras, but whenever I'm not working I will choose the Nikon D3200. It's compact, light weight and it's colour rendition is excellent.If you are planning to use the 24MP, then I would not recommend using the kit lens as diffraction can take the edge of your photo's. I tend to shoot the camera set at 13MP which is more than enough for almost all situations and I'm always impressed by the end results.I would highly recommend this camera!
