Nikon announces D3200 24MP entry-level DSLR with support for smart device collaboration
Nikon is pleased to announce the release of the Nikon D3200, a Nikon DX-format digital SLR camera. The camera is equipped with a new CMOS image sensor with an effective pixel count of 24.2-million pixels, the same EXPEED 3 image-processing engine built into Nikon’s high-end models, and Guide mode, all of which enable capture of beautiful, high-quality images with simple operation. From low-light to fast action, the D3200 delivers the amazing image quality Nikon is known for, either indoors or outside.
The D3200 is equipped with a new Nikon DX-format CMOS image sensor, developed by Nikon with an effective pixel count of 24.2-million pixels, and the EXPEED 3 image-processing engine. Its predecessor, the D3100, offered a pixel count of 14.2-million pixels and standard ISO sensitivities of ISO 100–3200. The D3200 surpasses the D3100 with regard to both with its significant increase in pixel count and support for standard sensitivities of ISO 100–6400 and a Hi 1 setting equivalent to ISO 12800. In order to maximize the potential of the image sensor’s 24.2-million pixels, the camera is equipped with the EXPEED 3 image-processing engine.
The Nikon D3200 is equipped with a live view button. By simply pressing this button, live view mode is activated. In live view mode, users can choose one of four AF-area modes: Normal-area AF, Wide-area AF, Subject-tracking AF, or Face-priority AF. The Nikon D3200 offers the full HD experience of high quality 1080p video. Users can create memorable, cinematic quality videos at 24 or 30 fps and easily share HD content online with friends and family or on their own HDTV via the HDMI output.
To prevent dust from degrading images, the Nikon D3200 employs the Image Sensor Cleaning function and Airflow Control System. These double measures effectively reduce the possibility of dust being photographed in the frame, ensuring beautiful images.
The Nikon D3200 also supports collaboration with smart devices (Android), with use of Wireless Mobile Adapter WU-1a increasing user convenience even further with the ability to transfer images and control shooting remotely over a wireless connection. The D3200’s efficient energy-saving design allows you to shoot approx. 540 shots per charge with the EN-EL14 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery.
The Nikon D3200 outfit with the versatile AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR image stabilization lens will be available in late April 2012 for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $699.95, in either Black or Red. The optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter, sold separately, will be available in late May 2012 for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $59.95.
