In this Nikon D3200 DSLR Review we will thoroughly examine what this camera really has to offer. Photography is complex but fascinating and full of promise. That promise falls pretty flat when you do not have the proper tools.
Picture this: There is a luminous full moon and you are out with your boisterous group of friends. You are all trekking through an adventurous yet modest night trail, having fun and loving the exhilarating fresh evening air. You hold up your cellphone to take a pic of your carefree hike hoping to capture the freedom and happiness. You capture something alright, what you capture is a bunch of figures that look like a Zombie Apocalypse comes to life. A good camera would have got the job done and captured the moment as well as the emotion of the moment.
The Nikon d3200 is one of the latest additions to the Nikon family and was the highest budgeted camera made by the company in 2012. The ease of access, performance and quality soon outdated the previous models and making the D3200 the most advanced camera the company had to offer. It is an entry level DSLR which makes it perfect if you’re looking to upgrade from your previous models.

Something that can get your creative side jumping, in our Nikon d3200 DSLR Review, is the guide mode. It will not act as a good substitute for more professional tutelage, however, it does provide great on-hand learning for beginners. It guides you through most of the basics and some of the more intermediate or advanced functions, that you will have to learn through ‘trial and error’ like most photographers worth their salt.
The guide mode will guide you via the screen and give you directions to make all the right settings, even if your subject is a toddler on a sugar rush. One of the major aspects of the camera is the resolution and the d3200 has a 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor that will, without a doubt, grab anyone’s attention by highlighting the quality of the image. A more practical reason for wanting the d3200 is it’s ability to crop and zoom pictures before and after the image is taken, without losing much in terms of quality.
Along with the new EXPEED 3 image processor speed between image processing and capturing is not a point that needs even the slightest concern. The 3 inch 920k dot TFT LCD screen that is located on the back of the camera offers great sharpness which is better than the D3100.
