Budget DSLR cameras today pretty much offer the same set of features. Standing out from the crowd for any new entry is not easy. This is what Nikon overlooked while designing the D3200.
Nikon D3200 Review
The D3200 is a budget DSLR that will cost you $700 – a highly affordable price, when it comes to DSLRs. The camera sports a 24 megapixel lens and an APS-C sensor along with full HD 1920 x 1080 video with 30, 25, and 24 FPS. Maximum resolution of shot images is 4912 x 2760 pixels.
At 16 ounces, the camera is lightweight as well as compact. Most of the back panel is taken up by the 3-inch display LCD.
With all these facts in front of you, the question remains: should you buy this camera?
This short answer is No. Let’s move on to its mini review.
The D3200 takes brilliant photographs in the daytime, however…
Its performance in dark regions without flash cannot even be commented on. High ISO images have a glowing noisy feel to them. Moreover, the controls of the camera are rather confusing and will frustrate the novice photographer, even though this model is targeted at beginners.
As far as video is concerned, the D3200 shoots better videos than its predecessor, the Nikon D3100. Its videos are sharper and more distortion free. But that video quality is already being offered by the now-2-year-old Canon EOS Rebel T2i.
D3200 Vs. The Competition
Therefore, if you are going to buy a budget camera, just go with the Canon EOS Rebel T2i; not only might you get better picture and video, but you also might be able to save a few bucks. You could also just go with a cheap mirrorless interchangeable lens camera like the Sony NEX-F3, for the same quality and better user-friendliness.
