I was once a film camera bug with a nice SLR and several lenses...then film got so hard to deal with and some 20 years ago I hung it up. Through the 20 years I bought a couple of dedicated digital cameras with the best quality/price available at the time and was always disappointed in the results compared with the film, it certainly wasn't easy to coax an "artsy" photo out of the devices. I then switched to using my phone which actually takes pretty great snapshots, but still not much in the way of control…and enlargements were just out of the question. So 20 years went by and I decided to move to a DSLR. I've always had great luck with refurbished units in other things like DVD players and whatnot and its holding true with this camera. I find that it was easy to pick up, and with minimal manual reading, take some pretty great shots. I've always been a gadget hound and not afraid to press buttons but the Nikon was very easy to navigate through the options and find what you need. I am very happy with this camera…the weight is good, the construction seems sturdy, controls are convenient, focus is fast, and takes great photos. I mostly use RAW/JPG F and have a fast 32gb memory card and have no problem with running out of memory in a day's shoot…some 800 shots. I'm not one to store photos in the camera so I download them after every shoot and delete the camera copy. If I were to go on an outing away from my computer for a few days I would probably want to get me another card or two. I have added a 55-200mm lens to the bundle (also refurbished) which really enhanced the capabilities. I'm thinking of a wide angle as a next Christmas present to myself, but the 18mm is almost as wide as the 24mm I had with my 35mm SLR so I'm not too sure I need it…maybe just a wide angle adapter!

Great Camera, not so sure about the lens


from St Louis, MO  -  Casual Photographer

I bought the refurb kit from Adorama and I really like the camera. It has some great features and takes really good pictures. The only thing I am not completely happy with is the lens. When adjusting the zoom ring slowly it sticks and I can't zoom smoothly. If I adjust it fast I don't notice any issues. I don't know if this is the nature of the lens or if it's only this way because it's a refurb. I also feel that the standard 55mm is inadequate for a zoom lens. I just purchased the 18-200mm and I have high hopes for that lens.


A Wonderful Camera


from Bountiful, utah  -  Photo Enthusiast

This camera is easy to learn how to use and the images are sharp. I am very happy with this camera.

Great camera


from KY  -  Photo Enthusiast

The camera overall is great. There is no scratches or marks that show its refurbished and it takes great pictures. The only complaint I have is that somehow the camera strap was left out of the package, but still not a big deal.

Amazing camera!


from new york city  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use my nikon d5200 for family event, nature photography, and for taking pictures of birds. I have to say i was a little worried about the camera at first but i learned all the features of the camera within a week and i still have more to explore. There are endless possibilities with this camera! it takes sharp images and is great wit low lighting. I like the varied angle monitor which helps when I'm trying to take a group photo. Overall, it was a great purchase and i suggest it. If you you are looking for a more professional camera i suggest the nikon d7100


It doesnt get any better!


from Spring Hill, FL  -  Photo Enthusiast

Looks and functions like brand new. Only way you would tell it was a refurb is by the box and warranty. Great camera! Upgraded from a D40X so most of my accessories work fine with the 5200.


Nikon D5200


from Gloversville, NY  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This body is an upgrade to my D5000, and is used for landscape photography. The main selling feature for me was it was 14 bit vs 12 bit. This has eliminated the need for a graduated neutral density filter or doing HDR, as it has nearly a 2 f/stop increase in dynamic range. The auto white balance seems to do a much better job than that on the D5000 The controls are straight forward and easy to use. Image quality is very good, this excellent color. Was torn between this and the D7100, glad I saved the money. Only down, after 100 shots, battery was getting low. This may have been a more function of the weather, as it was only 15 degrees out.

Still learning


from Montville, Maine  -  Semi-Pro Photographer

It is really too soon to tell. I have been using a Panasonic FZ200 (4th Panasonic) and it is like an extension of myself. Learning to use this camera is challenging and I do not think I am getting the best out of it as yet. The weather has been bitterly cold, snowing or raining! So not idea for practicing! I would hope to update this review in a couple of months.


Great camera at goodprice


from Rock Island, TN  -  Casual Photographer

I had budget, am amateur , but wanted latest features. Did lot of research, and decided this was camera I wanted, and Adorama was where I wanted to purchase it. Both met all my expectations.

Great camera at a great price


from Marshall, Texas  -  Semi-Pro Photographer

I had a D3100 and wanted to move up a bit in ISO and mega pixel and when I saw this refurbished D5200 I had to jump in. I usually don't care about megapixels, but as I have been doing more sports related photography and offering larger prints and Fatheads I feel the larger pixels give me better resolution. It is not a huge jump in ISO, but any increase is a help with the lighting at our football stadium! Was not interested initially in bracketing and HDR photography, but tried it right off and love being able to have this in my bag of tricks. The extra 2 frames a sec is great too. This camera should take care of my needs until I am ready to jump to the D7100 or maybe finally to Full frame. I would definitely recommend this camera! Tack sharp images!


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Warranty?
JOSHUA K  Yep, the warranty on any Nikon refurnished product is 90 days from date of purchase.
Deanna C  Do Nikon accessories come with this refurbished camera?
MARC C  What accessories? It comes with everything that normally comes with the regular retail version. Also, on the product page is a prominent link: "What is included?" which would have answered your question immediately.
Charles W  I want a USA model and am considering a refurbished 5200 model for budget reasons. I assume the refurbished Nikon 5200 has the same technical capability as a new unit. If my assumptions are incorrect, please advise. My first question; is the cosmetic quality of the refurbished camera comparable to a new unit? My second question; is the extended warranty offered by Nikon or Adorama? Either way would both parts and labor be included for both the lens and body for (1) one year? Thank you for your reply.
ASHA V  Yes, it has the same technical capability. I found no difference to cosmetic quality. IT's as good as new. Not sure about warranty as we did not purchase one.
