great features in small package !!

The camera is the best out there for the price point. The ISO capabilities are great in low light situations. The multitude of focus points allows you to create amazing shots. This camera far surpasses my expectations for what I expected. Overall wonderful camera for wonderful price :)

Good, but not Great

Picture quality and new features make this a good camera. I like the grid feature and that the controls are almost identical to the D5100 (which I also have). There is one flaw that makes this a product which I can't recommend. If you use back button focus, this is not the camera for you. Setting the AE-L/AF-L to control the auto focus (F2-Assign AE-L/AF-L button to AF-ON) and image review to Off, common settings for sports photography, you'll have problems with the auto focus when you review...

Picture quality and new features make this a good camera. I like the grid feature and that the controls are almost identical to the D5100 (which I also have). There is one flaw that makes this a product which I can't recommend. If you use back button focus, this is not the camera for you. Setting the AE-L/AF-L to control the auto focus (F2-Assign AE-L/AF-L button to AF-ON) and image review to Off, common settings for sports photography, you'll have problems with the auto focus when you review an image. The AE-L/AF-L button stops triggering the autofocus if you don't end image review with either the playback button or the Information button. Using the shutter button to end image review, as stated in the manual, will render the autofocus useless until you press the info button or start and stop playback with the playback button. I've been using Back button focus on Nikon DSLRs for years and never had an issue using the shutter button to end image review. I have 2 other Nikon DLSR's where this is not a problem, only the D5200 Nikon Support responded to support requests at first with "we're working to resolve the issue" then, nothing. I can't recommend this camera to anyone.

By far the best camera I have ever used!

Bug in the D5200


from Crown Point, IN, USA

Do yourself a favor and Google "Nikon 5200 Press Shutter Release Button Again" before deciding to purchase. My new D5200 had to be returned for service after only 2 weeks of use. This issue was supposed to be resolved with a firmware update but my camera already had the most current so an issue still remains.

Absolutely in love with my camera


from Undisclosed

I bought this camera 5 days ago and I made such a great choice. This is my first DSLR and it is a great beginners camera, so easy to use. The battery life on it is amazing and the pictures come out crystal clear. I have the 18-55mm lens and as much bad reviews I've read about it, I think otherwise. The lens is amazing, and I am so happy with my new toy. The sound it makes when you take a picture sounds so professional and I love that! Will definitely bring it with me every time I go on vacation! Would definitely recommend!

Fun to learn with!


from Clayton, MO, USA

This is my first DSLR, and I absolutely love it. I got it with the AF-S DX 18-140/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens, which is good for beginners. The camera is sturdy and I love the pictures I've taken so far. The controls are easy, and the camera is simple enough that learning from it is easy. Also, I love the moveable screen!

Best camera ever!


from DeLand, FL, USA

I have had this camera now for 5 days. I got it as an Anniversary/Christmas gift from my husband. I am so happy with it. It takes great pictures, I love being able to capture such great detail in my Nature shots. I love all the different settings, my favorite is the Sports Setting for taking action shots of my dogs. I will say I am not used to only being able to zoom so far with the 18-55mm lens that came with it. (My last camera went to 90mm which isn't that bad but it is amazing how much you miss that last 35mm! LOL) But I hope to get a new 18-200 lens soon so my zooming issues with be gone. Other than that it is a great camera and I am very happy with it. :) I included my most favorite shot so far, a picture of wild Muscadine grapes with spider webs covered in early morning dew. :) The detail in this shot is amazing, something I could never get with my other camera!

Really have enjoyed this camera


from San Francisco and Hawaii

I purchased my D5200 about a year ago, and I have really enjoyed this camera. It stuns me at how good the color and focus quality can be, makes me look good as an amateur photographer I use it for business use in as a realtor, interior and exterior homes shots, and also use it when I travel. I recommend this camera for a beginner to somewhat advanced photographer. For more advanced photographers you will likely want to look at full frame rather than crop frame. This is a great camera for a starter and hard to go wrong at the current price. If you see yourself wanting to expand with more lenses, and you still want to stay in the budget priced DX camera's the D7100 might be a better choice because you can use lens that don't need to have a focus motor, the body has one built in. I purchased a nikon 18-200 DX lens with the kit 18-55 lens, and also a 55-300 DX lens, all good lens, I thought that I would use the 18-200 as my standard lens, however, I added a 16-85DX lens and love that lens for the slightly wider angle for landscape and indoor shots, as well as a good portrait lens. I like the camera and recommend it as good starter camera for someone that is more serious than a point and shoot. I also use an my older D50 and a P510

This camera is great !


from WA

I really like this camera ! After being frustrated for too long at being unable to get the photo I wanted with lesser cameras, I finally broke down and purchased a 'good' camera. This photo was taken with full auto, all I had to do was frame and zoom !

Great First DSLR!


from Undisclosed

This camera is very good. I know people have said the quality of photo is dependent on the glass, but the body offers many features that help you achieve maximum potential out of your glass. The 39 autofocus points are great, the 24MP sensor does a great job capturing detail and getting sharp images. Video quality is good (1080p at 30fps) and the audio quality is decent (I would recommend an external mic if you're serious about audio quality. Installing firmware updates has been easy, and Lightroom 4 and 5 both recognize the RAW files, which I would consider a "must-have" post-processing app. I am happy with my purchase, and even though the D5300 is out and I have heard good things about bumps in image quality (due to the removal of the AA-filter, and the other features such as Wifi and GPS, I think this camera is still great, and that if those features are important to you, then upgrade to the D5300; but if not, you will be satisfied with the image quality and interface of this DSLR.

Love it!


from Yorktown, VA, USA

I bought this camera in November of 2013. This is my first DSLR camera. I had used a Nikon d90 back in 2011,and I fell in love with the brand. I use to use film when I was younger,and wanted to branch out to the digital era. The camera took a bit of getting use to, but it has been the best purchase I have ever made. Since then I have bought several lenses for it, and now own a small photography business. This is a great camera,and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for one.
