Nikon D5200

 

Nikon's latest entry-level DSLR offers an impressive feature set and great image quality

Impressive 39-point AF system ; Continuous shooting speed of 5fps ; Stunning image quality ; Intuitive graphic user interface

Slow AF point positioning in Live View ; Lags when previewing creative effects in real time ; Noisy kit lens performance

In addition to still image capture, the D5200 offers a solid video recording feature set. Shooting at 1080p Full HD you have options to shoot, at 30, 25 and 24fps, in addition to which it’s also possible to shoot at 60i/50i. One thing to note here is...

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...

Good picture quality, vari-angle LCD screen, decent autofocus system with motorised lenses

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...

For its £720 price tag, the Nikon D5200 draws in the D7000's autofocus system and, considering that and the new 24-megapixel sensor's overall image quality, it's a DSLR that's a step beyond its predecessor.

Nikon D5200 review

 

Well specified, especially with its 39-point autofocus, but the controls could be more elegant and our test shots tended to be slightly soft

Nikon D5200 review

 

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 Nikon D5200 is ideal for anyone wanting their first good-quality DSLR or wanting to upgrade from their current mid-range DSLR. The Nikon D5200 is well-built, comfortable and easy to use with good picture quality and provides good value for money....

The Nikon D5200 is an interesting camera, placed in the crossover between beginner and enthusiast level. Some people would say that its plastic body and simple handling are likely to frustrate the enthusiast, while its memory-hungry resolution (and...

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...

The Nikon D5200 with its 18-55mm lens kit is a high-quality introduction to the possibilities of a digital SLR camera.

Excellent autofocus

Lack of absolute sharpness in some images
