Really have enjoyed this camera

By D5200shooter

from San Francisco and Hawaii

Comments about Nikon D5200 24.1 MP DX DSLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens Kit:

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 !

By jimali

Comments about Nikon D5200 24.1 MP DX DSLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens Kit:

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!

    By NikonSuave

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Nikon D5200 24.1 MP DX DSLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens Kit:

    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!

    By Midoriku

    from Yorktown, VA, USA

    Comments about Nikon D5200 24.1 MP DX DSLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens Kit:

    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.

    "D5200 Built my Foundation as Professional Photographer Wanna be".

    By DonAldo

    from Abu Dhabi, UAE

    Comments about Nikon D5200 24.1 MP DX DSLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens Kit:

    Hi Everyone, I am one of the many happy and satisfied Nikon D5200 owner in the planet. This is my 1st DSLR camera since birth :). When I started using this, I feel like a professional photographer already. This camera has met all my expectations and delivers all the requirements as an entry level 'professional photographer wanna be'. Yes, I have a long way to go in photography, but just in case I wanna upgrade my DSLR I will still keep my D5200 with me, because this camera has “Built my Foundation�.

    Great Beginners/ Advanced Beginners Purchase

    By CaliGuy

    from San Diego, CA, USA

    Comments about Nikon D5200 24.1 MP DX DSLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens Kit:

    When I purchased the D5200, I had never owned a DSLR or even a point and shoot, but I had done thorough research and figured out that this was the camera for me. This camera far exceeded my expectations: the 24 MP captures immense detail, the 1080p/60 fps recording is awesome (the fps is high enough to even get a little slow mo action going), the flip out screen is nice for those up high/ down low shots, and the list goes on. I was (and still am) very happy with my purchase, and my photography skills have gotten better as I have kept shooting. It might be time to step it up to the 7000 series and (eventually) to a full frame (D600?) .. Pros: 24 MP Flip out screen 1080p/60 fps video (with full shutter/aperture controls) 5 fps Color choices makes it more fun Perfect fit in the hand Easy interfaces/menus Nice button placements Nice Image Quality Cons: -BUFFER SIZE - only 6-7 RAW photos before the buffer gets filled.. This may not be a problem for everyone, but for people doing action/sports photography, this is kind of a drag -ISO noise - seems evident at even as low as 800 ISO -Live View kind of lags a little bit: takes a bit to switch to LV, a while to focus, etc.. but its LV so what can you expect.. -Flash button gets pushed alot accidentally while trying to change ISO, or just when changing grip -Can't change aperture size while in Live View In the end, the cons are just small things, and the pros greatly outweigh them. This is still an awesome camera

    Excellent Entry Level DSLR

    By Shubha

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Nikon D5200 24.1 MP DX DSLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens Kit:

    If you are looking for a decent entry level DSLR, this is it. Very good picture quality, compatible to wide variety of Nikkor lenses to suite your requirement. Camera has just the perfect grip and user friendly inter-phase and so high value for your money. It's better than D5300 and D7100 even, if you consider the specs and the difference in price.

    Comments about Nikon D5200 24.1 MP DX DSLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens Kit:

    I am a beginner action sports photographer. I got this camera as a gift and immediately started shooting. Its fast burst mode and easy settings interface make it a perfect camera. I recommend this camera to anyone getting into photography and is looking to pursue it seriously.

    Love this Camera!

    By ChrisInCT

    from Connecticut, USA

    Comments about Nikon D5200 24.1 MP DX DSLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens Kit:

    This is my first DSLR- I had a film camera and a bunch of point and shoots, but this is my first "serious" digital. Simply put, I love it! The settings are all easy to find and use, auto-focus is great (depending on your glass, of course). It's fast, and the size is just right for me. I bought this primarily for travel, and this is small enough I will actually use it, but big enough I don't feel like it's a toy. The one negative is the kit lens. The 18-55mm VR is garbage. The pictures are soft and the focusing with this lens is awful. Don't get it (unless you really want the red body, like I did)! Get yourself the body only and the 35mm f/1.8 DX lens. It's a great "carry-around" lens. I love it!
