We caught up with Marina Gurevich, Product Manager at Nikon Europe, for her thoughts on this camera: “The inspiring D5200 is ideal for those who are passionate about photography and want to experiment with the camera’s superior features. The impressive image and movie quality alongside a versatile vari-angle LCD monitor lets users unlock their creative potential.”
Breath-taking image quality
The D5200 takes finely detailed images and excellent movie recordings. The third camera in its series following the D5000 and the D5100, this camera offers 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor and the new EXPEED 3 image processor provides high-speed operation and excellent, rich colour reproduction – as well as enhanced movie recording. The high ISO sensitivity (100-6400 which is extendable to 25600) delivers brilliant shots in dark or poorly lit environments as well as producing clear images of fast moving subjects.
Sharing the AF system, metering sensor and scene recognition as the Nikon D7000, this camera offers a new level of performance and much enhanced image quality. The superior accuracy of the 39-point AF system and nine cross-type sensors delivers razor sharp images by focusing precisely on the subject you choose. Meanwhile, the 2,016-pixel RGB metering sensor provides precise data to the camera’s Scene Recognition System, which optimizes exposure, autofocus and white balance immediately before the shutter is released.
Image creations from any angle
We love the Nikon D5200’s versatile 7.5cm (3-in) vari-angle LCD monitor, which gives you the ultimate freedom and flexibility to take beautiful shots and movies from virtually any position. You can flip, tilt or turn the swivel monitor to get really creative with your angles – ideal for shooting creative movies you can be really proud of. In addition, the D5200 is an intelligently designed lightweight camera, with clear menus and superior ergonomics, making it a pleasure to maneuver and shoot with.
Wireless connectivity to share your creations
You can also wirelessly transmit images from your camera to an Apple or Android smart device by using the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter. This makes it easy to share images that you are proud of with friends via social networks and email for instant reactions. You can even control your camera remotely from your smart device to help you take beautiful shots without disturbing your subjects.
Distinctive HD movies
The Nikon D5200 makes it effortless to alternate between shooting stills and Full HD movies with smooth (up to 60i/50i) recording at the flick of a switch. The camera’s subject tracking of moving objects in three dimensions, with full time servo AF (AF-F), ensures focus of moving objects throughout filming. Adding to that, creating movies you can be proud of is easy with in-movie editing and the camera’s built-in stereo microphone.
Inspirational Effect and Scene modes
With Effects mode, the D5200 really allows you to get creative. A range of seven special effects: Selective Colour, Miniature, High and Low Key, Silhouette, Colour Sketch and Night Vision can be applied in real time to images and movies through Live View so you can see what your final creation will look like before you shoot it.

In addition, in-camera High Dynamic Range (HDR) and D-lighting capture detailed images of high-contrast scenes, increasing creative possibilities. You can also select from 16 different Scene modes which optimise the camera settings, such as shutter speed, ISO and aperture, to the situation you are shooting. It is great for a quick shot or if you are still learning about D-SLR photography.
