A good camera for the price

 
4.0
Pros: I love the quality and speed plus the flip out screen
Cons: Most of the buttons are too close together and hard to find sometimes also the memory card door opens while holding the camera
Verdict: All in all I am very satisfied with my new camera that I upgraded from the 3100. I love the 39 focus points and all of the different scene options available. The 5 fps is extremely fast enough for me. I also love the stereo microphone built-in on the front for recording video.

Verdict: The basics Nikon's a big name in the camera world, and we've got the company's D5200 DSLR armed with a massive 24.1-megapixel sensor to put through its paces. It's a capable shooter, complete with full HD video skills and superb image quality, but does its fiddly controls get in the way?

4.0
Verdict: Like the Nikon D5300 that replaces it, the Nikon D3300 below it in the Nikon SLR range and the Nikon D7100 above it, the D5200 has a CMOS sensor with 24 million pixels. However, some may be surprised to learn that Nikon doesn't use exactly the same sensor in these camera.

[REVIEW-NIKON D5200 DSLR and NIKKOR 18–300MM LENS]

Verdict: This 24 megapixel DSLR is for "advanced beginners" according to Nikon. The internals, such as sensor, image processor, auto focus and auto exposure are similar to the D7000, while the externals, such as viewfinder and body material is not quite up to big brother standards.

Cons: Slightly slower than average autofocus speeds, Low-light AF performance not as good as some competing models, Changing some basic settings takes more time and effort than it should, Optical viewfinder is tiny and cramped, Special Effects (accessible from Mode dial) are limited (just seven), and the...
Verdict: The Nikon D5200 is a lot of camera for the money, and though it's aimed at advanced beginners in terms of image quality and capabilities, it's not too far removed from DSLRs geared for more serious photographers.

4.2
Verdict: Advances from one version of a DSLR to the next tend to be minor, but the Nikon D5200 takes a bigger step than most. Not only has the autofocus system improved significantly over its predecessor, the D5100, but the sensor has been boosted too, from 16.2 megapixels to a massive 24.1 megapixels.

Housed inside the body of a D5100 is a high-resolution 24.1MP image sensor from the D3200; the auto-focus 39-point system module from the D7000; and the Expeed 3 image processing engine from the professional grade...

Verdict: The Nikon D5200 is the upper-entry-level camera in the Nikon DSLR lineup. Slotting itself just above the D3200 Nikon D3200 , it produces similar-quality images using a similar design. It incorporates a unique-in-its-class 39-point AF system with 9 cross-type points.

Verdict: Consequently, the compact D5200 packs some ‘big camera' specs, giving it broad appeal from entry-level to enthusiast. Converts are probably also going to like the colour of our test camera, which is a metallic-look red finish that's actually very classy in a similar way to the Pentax K-30's blue.

Nikon D5200 DSLR Review

Verdict: The D5200 follows Nikon's D5100 and offers a new sensor with higher resolution (24MP instead of 16MP in the D5100). The new camera has an APS-C-sized CMOS sensor and uses a fast and reliable AF system with 39 focus sensors, including nine cross-type sensors.

Pros: Excellent image quality. Fast autofocus. 4fps continuous shooting. Sharp vari-angle LCD. 39-point autofocus system. Fast to start and shoot. 1080i60 video capture. Wi-Fi and GPS add-ons available
Cons: Small pentamirror viewfinder. Will not autofocus with screw-drive lenses. Noisy focus during video recording. Only one control wheel
Verdict: The D5200 ($799.95 direct, body only) is Nikon's mid-level consumer D-SLR camera , offering more features and control than the entry-level D3200 , but not quite rivaling the more expensive D7100 .

Nikon D5200 Review

Pros: Good still and video image quality, Light and compact, Competitive high ISO performance, 5 fps continuous shooting speed, Capable autofocus system
Cons: Minimal external controls for adjusting camera settings, Lacks weather sealing of some direct competitors, 95% coverage of viewfinder makes accurate framing a bit problematic
Verdict: Nikon's D5200 sits in the middle of the most current triumvirate of Nikon cropped sensor DSLRs - the D3200, 5200 and 7100. Its MSRP is $100 more than the D3200 but it offers an articulating 3 inch monitor, an extra frame per second in its high-speed continuous shooting mode and a more advanced...

Camera Test: Nikon D5200

Verdict: Nikon has made a compelling DSLR in the D5200. If you like the convenience of an articulated LCD screen and are invested in the Nikon system, it's basically your only option other than the D5100. But that is hardly a limitation, given that the D5200 performs well and delivers very fine images.

Nikon D5200

 
4.0
Pros: Fully articulated LCD screen is useful; stereo microphones built-in; tweaks to Auto ISO make it a lot more useful; good image quality
Cons: Viewfinder magnification is a tad low; no audio output port for audio monitoring
Verdict: In the Nikon stable of DSLRs, the D5100 was one of the standout models simply because it offered a lot of enthusiast level features for a very reasonable price, while the D3100 was a more simplified ­camera for beginners.

Pros: Great image quality with low noise, 5fps continuous shooting, 39-point with 9 cross-type AF system, Partial manual video exposure, Clean 1080p HDMI video out
Cons: Reduced battery life, Lacks viewfinder eye sensor, Lacks touch-screen, Lacks Depth of Field preview, Slow and noisy kit lens
Verdict: The Nikon D5200 is the company's latest 'upper entry-level' DSLR, aimed both at beginners and those looking for a step-up from a basic budget model. Announced in November 2012, it comes just over a year and a half after its predecessor, the D5100.

Verdict: The Nikon D5200, announced at the end of 2012, sits between the D3200 and D7100 in the Nikon DSLR range, and eclipses the opposition for resolution by including an impressive 24.1MP sensor. It even outdoes full-frame cameras like the Canon 5D MkIII.

Verdict: When Sony announced the inclusion of a 24.3-million-pixel, APS-C-sized CMOS sensor in its Alpha 77 and NEX-7, we anticipated that the likes of Nikon would follow suit. These expectations were met, but somewhat surprisingly via the ‘upper-entry-level' Nikon D3200 DSLR, rather than an enthusiast-level...

Pros: Good picture quality, vari-angle LCD screen, decent autofocus system with motorised lenses
Cons: Experienced sharpness issues with first review sample body (not confirmed as an official, recognised issue as yet), banding in shadow areas when pushing raw file EV, poor movie clips with terrible interlaced tearing in playback, no touchscreen, lack of quick-access buttons on account of vari-angle...
Verdict: The Nikon D5200 fills the high-resolution gap in the company's middle-spec DSLR space by squeezing a brand new 24-megapixel CMOS sensor into the new model. It was inevitable, really; such a resolution gap didn't really exist until Nikon launched the 24-megapixel and apparent entry-level D3200.

Verdict: Having spent most of 2012 updating its full-frame DSLR range with the addition of the D4 , D800 and D600 models, Nikon has shifted its attention back to its APS-C DSLR range with the launch of the upper entry-level D5200.

Pros: Produces detailed images, Excellent ISO performance, Great swivel screen, 2 year warranty, Fast continuous shooting, Works with a number of optional accessories, Built-in stereo microphone, HDR mode is excellent
Cons: Quicker access to options could be provided, RAW not available when using effects or HDR mode, Slower than expected focusing speed, Slow shutter response in live view
Verdict: in April of 2011 we were impressed and gave it our highly recommended award. The biggest change on the D5200 is the upgrade to the 24.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, with the D5200 producing 5 star quality images. The D5200 can also shoot at a faster rate of 5 fps in continuous shooting.

Pros: Excellent autofocus
Cons: Lack of absolute sharpness in some images
Verdict: The Nikon D5200 is a mid-range DSLR, a streamlined step up from the Nikon D7000. It's geared towards anyone keen for good quality images but without being able to afford a high-end DSLR. It comes as competition to cameras such as Canon's EOS 650D and the Pentax K5.

Pros: High-resolution DX sensor, Better AF and metering than D5100
Cons: We don't know price or release date
Verdict: The Nikon D5200, at first glance, is the love-child of the entry-level D3200 and the semi-professional D7000 . It shares its high-resolution 24.1-megapixel DX-format imaging sensor with the D3200, along with much of its body design.
