(This review is not for the camera itself, but for the refurb. I will be purchasing another of the same camera.) I purchased this refurbished camera with the understandig that a refurb was pretty much new with no box and maybe a scuff or 2 on the outside. When I opened it the camera had obviously been dropped because one of the corners was broken and someone had attempted to glue it back and touch it up. I immediately emailed Adorama and told them and asked if that was a normal thing. They assured me it was "highly unusual" and therefore they are treating me like it is my fault that it is broken. I am pretty much done with Adorama and their beating around the bush. I am preparing to box up the entire order (over $2000) and return it and purchace it all elsewhere. No more "refurb" for me.

Constantly freezes and has No, ZERO customer support.

By

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

By

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

By

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.

By

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!

By

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

By

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:

Louisa S  is this item guaranteed to work and function correctly even if it had been refurbished? what exactly has been refurbished with this camera also? small things, or major functional problems? thanks!
CARRRIE S  I recently bought a refurbished d3200 from Adorama. To be honest with you I forgott that it was refurbished because it was for all practical purposes brand new. I love this camera and it was nice to save some money.
MICK M  Looking at black or red refurb...... My wedding on 13 Dec 2013.... better of the two?..... Looked at d3100 models and figured d3200 better?.... any pros or cons... Thanks, MICK need reply asap if possible......
DAVID R  PRO- HIGHER PIXLE- MORE CAPABILITIES- EXCELLENT PICTURES TOOK WEDDING PICS AT MY SONS WEDDING. AWESOME !
Jill W  If this is a refurbished camera, what exactly was refurbished? I'm leary of buying anything refurbished.
STEPHEN H  My understanding is that a refurbished camera is a camera that is sent back to the manufacturer, such as a display model tha did not sell. It is checked/tested, cleaned, repaired (if necessary), and all missing accessories are replaced and all functions checked. The camera should be as good as new.
