I recently received the Nikon D3200 DSLR Camera together with the Nikon 18-55 mm lens for review purposes. It's my first time using a Nikon camera actually, I have used a Canon and I own an Olympus camera myself, but using a Nikon camera is really my first time. Today I will share my thoughts about this camera. Also, I will show you some pictures that I took with this cutie. Keep on reading guys, this camera might be perfect for you ;).
Description of the camera
Take your photos and videos to the next level. Unrivaled 24.2 megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor for truly dazzling photos and Full HD 1080p movies in any light. Innovative Guide Mode to help you master the camera. HD-SLR power; point-and-shoot ease. The camera comes in the color black and red.
Lens: AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR
The body is around €488.-. Together with the 18 - 55 mm VR lens its €550.- in total in The Netherlands. The prices can differ per country and store. To the people in The Netherlands, you can check out kieskeurig.nl and see where you can get the camera for the cheapest price.
It's a very compact camera. I have small hands and I think that the size of the camera is perfect for me. I wouldn't recommend it to people with huge hands though, it probably will feel uncomfortable to them.
Front & Back
This camera looks very nice, the only thing which I don't like is the position of the record button. It's quite "hard" to reach.
The quality of the pictures is good, detailed and I'm loving the blurry background. The quality is pretty good already, even when you put it on auto mode. As you can see, my baby nephew was the model of that day hehehe... I love it that the picture is still good eventhough there is backlight.
It's very easy to focus on a point that you want. However at video mode, your lens will make A LOT of sound.
High ISO - The higher, the more noise
The noise is getting bad at ISO 3200 and ISO 6400 is even worse, but actually it's not THAT bad.
Things that I like about this camera:
- Light weight for a DSLR
- 24.2 megapixels, great detailed quality
- Mobile editing, you can add effects, like fish eye to your pictures (without using your computer)
- Reasonable price for a DSLR
- Can adjust the settings, like ISO and shutter speed while filming
This was just a short review about this camera :). I think that the Nikon D3200 is perfect for beginners who aren't familiar with a DSLR. It will provide step-by-step instructions so you will get to know the features of the camera.
If you have any questions about it, feel free to ask in the comment section below and I'm wondering.... which camera DO YOU use?
