Excellent starter DSLR

I bought this as a backup for my D5100. The shutter on this model is actually more responsive than my D5100. Took me about 5 minutes to set up the menus and start shooting in RAW manual. The display has a light blue background with black letters compared to the D5100's black background with white letters. It was a little easier on my eyes. Don't know that I miss the tilt screen yet, maybe when I do some video I will but for stills it is just fine. The creative modes are still there for color ...

I bought this as a backup for my D5100. The shutter on this model is actually more responsive than my D5100. Took me about 5 minutes to set up the menus and start shooting in RAW manual. The display has a light blue background with black letters compared to the D5100's black background with white letters. It was a little easier on my eyes. Don't know that I miss the tilt screen yet, maybe when I do some video I will but for stills it is just fine. The creative modes are still there for color sketch, miniature etc. they are just under the Retouch menu now as post processing. You can't shoot an original image with the effects like on the D5100, and this also means no video in those creative modes either. This may be to keep the battery from dying so fast and streamline the use of the camera for beginners. New is the "color outline" which basically turns the image into a b/w pencil sketch with no color. I suppose this would be good for architecture, fashion design or if you want to make your kids a coloring book! So far it performs pretty much like the D5100. Files are a lot bigger now though when shooting RAW with the additional MP. Buttons are placed a little differently so it will take some getting used to over the D5100. I just wish Nikon would have added some extra AF points instead of more MP; I think that would win over more customers. I got pretty good dynamic color when shooting in A Mode, manual not so much, just probably need to play around with it more. Haven't tested high ISO yet but I think it will perform about the same as the D5100. Overall this is a really nice camera for anyone wanting to start out with a new DSLR or as a backup camera. Nice to have the guide mode so when you hand this over to a traveling companion or relative they can play with it to get some nice photos as well.

Having recently upgraded from a D70 to the D3200, my expectations were for increased functions combined with the D70 quality. These expectations were not met. Yes the increased number of pixels offers greater control during the editing and related activities; However, camera body just doesn't cut it. For example, when compared to the D70: - Smaller is not better. The camera body creates ergonomic problems creating unexpected mistakes - Lighter is not necessarily better.Add any larger lens, it becomes seriously front heavy. Similarly adding a flash (i.e., external) , produces a top heavy camera. In essence, controlling the camera becomes more problematic. - It seems flimsy. The lighter camera sacrifices sturdy for fragile. It seems that contact with anything will produce gashes in the external shell. - Some functionality appears to be missing with this upgrade. For example, the nighttime landscape was removed. Summary, if this were my first DSLR, I would not know any better; however, this camera while functionally more sophisticated, lacks the quality of my D70. Perhaps if Nikon invested more on creating a true camera upgrade (e.g., eliminating the video option), they might have created a truly great new step forward without taking us prosumers two plus steps back.

Constantly freezes and has No, ZERO customer support.


from Seattle, WA

Bought this for a gift on Father's Day. It froze up that afternoon and was returned to the retailer the next day. They said it was a faulty memory card and replaced it. It continued to freeze up. It was returned to the retailer 5 times before they said to send it back to Nikon. Nikon simply cleaned it and sent it back, saying that there was no problem. Granted, it may not have frozen for them, but the repeat history is conclusive. It needed to be replaced on day #1 and was not and now is but an expensive paperweight for it freezes too often to be trusted.

Best Camera at this Price level


from Undisclosed

Compared to the Canon T3i, and the Sony and Fuji offerings, this camera is the winner. It's got the MP advantage, the clarity and focus are great. As an entry level offering, it does offer a lot of options. A flip out or touch screen would really have capped off this camera. Also Nikon needs to offer a Nikon brand vertical grip, I'm using another brand, but the only options are using a cord for the shutter release or not using the vertical release button. A small complaint - that and the flash system on the Canon does seem a bit better. However, the Nikon just has an advantage in clarity, and lack of any distortion even at full open-full zoom. I really like the weight with the added vertical grip and the metering is great even when bouncing a flash. Haven't had it long enough to test it, but the build feels good and solid and the RAW files have really allowed a lot of level of post manipulation on the computer. So far I'm pleased to very pleased. Especially at this price.

Great camera for the price


from Wooster, OH  -  Casual Photographer

Bought this for my wife who's into bird watching. Nice camera with high megapixel and combined with the Nikon 55-300mm VR zoom, allows for nice close ups for the amateur birder without spending big bucks on extravagant zoom lenses.

An excellent camera. Period.


from Upstate New York

For an "entry-level" product the Nikon D3200 sure doesn't show it! Photo quality is unbelievable and the camera operates fast in almost any lighting condition. I got the kit which comes with an additional lens (55-200mm zoom lens) and I really like both it and the default 18-55mm lens. Switching between lenses is fast, easy and I'd say even fun. The bag the kit comes with is also very nice. Make sure you get a large-capacity class 10 sd card and you're good to go. Battery life isn't bad either when you're just using the viewfinder but you also have the option to use the camera like a point-and-shoot as well (live view mode.) I'd say this camera is great for anyone. Novice, intermediate and professional photographers alike, the D3200 is easy to operate but has enough features there to please anyone who wants to gain a higher understanding or make use of things like aperture, shutter speed, manual focusing image adjustment etc.. This digital wonder is affordable and worth every penny. I am so happy with it!

Best for the buck!


from Sandwich, Illinois  -  Semi-pro Photographer

For quality of product and of image, and for the price, I have to give this 5 stars. In my opinion, the best DSLR under $500.00 bar none. The Canon Rebels are nice, and I own one, but the D3200 is a bit more user friendly, and the images a bit more sharper. As far as the lens goes, Nikon quality. Been using the combo for landscapes, and detail is excellent. Again, if you're looking for a great DSLR, under $500.00, shop around and compare this one, and I think you'll agree, this is the best. I haven't found anything I didn't like about it so far.

A great travel camera


from Nebraska  -  Photo Enthusiast

I got the Nikon D3200 for a grab'n go travel camera as it's half the size/weight of my D300. It accepts all my lenses, even my external flash, & I like the up grade from my older D300's 12MP to the D3200's 24MP. It does serve the purpose of why I bought the camera but does NOT replace my D300 as I was kind of hoping it might. It's too much like a point'n shoot, it doesn't allow me the freedom I'm use to.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  What is a VR lens?
MARK T  Vibration Reduction....this allows you to hand hold slower shutter speeds, maybe down to 1/10 second at the 18mm level or perhaps 1/75th of a second with a 300mm lens (or better) which can be handy for shooting wildlife that moves around. I typically shoot more than 95% on a tripod but recently shot some seascapes when nearby poundinng waves made me nervous about setting up my tripod. M
