Whether new to D-SLR shooting, or for those simply ready to step-up to a
higher level of photography, the 24.1-megapixel D5200 will inspire new
ways to capture with an easy-to-use interface, in-camera Special Effects
and creative modes, plus the ability to share wirelessly in an instant.
The Nikon D5200 will be available in late January for a suggested
retail price (SRP) of $899.95* with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm
f/3.5-5.6G VR lens.
“The Nikon D5200 is intended for the customer who wants to capture
and share their life, their experiences and their adventures in new and
original ways”, said Bo Kajiwara, Vice President of Marketing, Planning
and Customer Experience, Nikon Inc. “The D5200 features Nikon’s latest
innovative technologies along with an easy-to-use feature set that
enables users to unleash their creativity, and truly test the boundaries
of a photographer’s imagination.”
Imaginative Features Inspire Creativity
The Nikon D5200 is designed to foster creative possibilities,
allowing users to easily document their lives with a compact and
lightweight D-SLR camera body. Loaded with features for making amazing
images and HD video, the D5200 is a must-have camera for a well-planned
excursion or spontaneous adventure. Photographers have the ability to
tell stories with artistic flair, thanks to the assistance of features
- Vari-Angle LCD - The high-resolution, 921,000-dot
3-inch LCD screen swivels and rotates at a variety of angles, and is
viewable at 170 degrees. This makes it easy to capture images and HD
video from creative angles such as above the crowd or down low from a
toddler’s perspective. Users can even swivel the LCD screen for creative
and fun self-portraits.
- In-Camera Special Effects for video and still images -By
selecting the Effects option on the Mode Dial, users can apply a wide
range of creative filters and effects for both photos and HD video.
Modes include Selective Color to visually highlight up to three selected
colors within a monochrome scene; Color Sketch to create a vivid
drawing from a scene; Miniature effect to make a scene appear as a
miniature model and Night Vision to enable images and video in very
low-light by increasing the camera’s sensitivity. Users can also enable
modes to emphasize silhouettes or create color effects with high-key and
low-key images and video. These effects can be applied prior to
shooting the photo or video, or can be applied post-capture for photos
through the retouch menu.
- Creativity has never been easier - The D5200
features an enhanced graphical user interface (GUI) that makes it easy
to visualize camera settings for optimal results. Additionally, users
can enable other visual effects including High Dynamic Range (HDR) and
six settings of Nikon’s Picture Controls to creatively and automatically
manipulate tone and color for striking images and HD video.
Creativity Without Boundaries
The D5200 takes advantage of Nikon’s new 24.1-megapixel DX-format
CMOS sensor to deliver amazing image quality and beautiful HD video that
bursts with vivid color, broad dynamic range and gorgeous tones, even
in challenging light. Users are now able to realize the full potential
and the performance benefits of D-SLR photography including rapid camera
response, interchangeable lenses and amazing image quality. Whether
shooting a family outing or action sports, the camera is packed with
features that let users create amazing content:
- Wide ISO range (from 100-6400) - For shooting in
even the most challenging lighting conditions, the D5200 covers a wide
ISO range and is expandable to as high as ISO 25,600. Shooting at high
ISO sensitivity enables users to shoot at faster shutter speeds and
reduce the effects of image blur caused by camera shake even in
low-light situations or when shooting a moving subject, delivering clean
and sharp images with minimal noise.
- EXPEED 3 image processing - Nikon’s most recent
image processing engine, dubbed EXPEED 3, drives the rapid response and
swift performance of the camera, while maximizing energy efficiency,
reducing image noise and delivering true-to-life colors.
- Scene Recognition System - Information from the
2,016 pixel RGB sensor is used to instantly analyze and recognize the
scene prior to capture, resulting in adjustments to exposure, AF and
white balance for the best possible image quality. The result is
brilliant landscapes, flattering portraits and fast-moving action
captured with split-second precision.
- 39-point AF system with wide area coverage - The
D5200 features Nikon’s quick and accurate 39-point AF system to help
users create tack-sharp images for a wide variety of subjects. The
Multi-CAM 4800 DX AF sensor works in tandem with the Scene Recognition
System to accurately acquire and track subjects throughout the frame.
Users can lock-on to fast moving subjects throughout the frame using 3D
tracking to create sharp images of fast action, or use one of the other
modes including single point AF, Dynamic AF and Auto-Area AF. When in
Live View or recording video, contrast detect AF quickly acquires, and
can even track focus through the frame.
- Speed and performance - Whether upgrading from a
compact point-and-shoot or exploring the benefits of D-SLR photography,
users will appreciate the speed to capture fast action and fleeting
moments at the press of a button. The D5200 can shoot full-resolution
images at up to five frames-per-second to help freeze fast moving
subjects, and quickly acquires focus thanks to the intelligent AF
system. The D5200 delivers amazing performance with lightning fast
start-up time and nearly imperceptible shutter lag, the time when the
shutter button is pressed to when the beautiful image is captured.
The Easy Way to Share Great Pictures
While the Nikon D5200 is capable of capturing amazing images and HD
video, it also enables the user to simply and quickly share stunning
imagery with friends and family. By utilizing the optional WU-1a
Wireless Mobile Adapter, the connected user can easily share photos
taken on the D5200 to a supported smartphone or tablet.2 The Nikon Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility application is available free of charge on Google Play™ for Android™1 devices or from the App Store™ for the iPhone or iPad.3
When using the application, photographers can wirelessly transfer
images from the camera to a mobile device, and even remotely control the
camera from up to 49 feet.
Realize a Vision in HD Video
For those wanting to expand their creative vision with video, the
D5200 D-Movie HD video mode is capable of capturing Full HD 1080p, with
the option to apply Nikon’s Creative Effects. This feature lets users
take advantage of modes like Selective Color or Color Sketch to create
truly customized movies. By simply pressing the dedicated video record
button, movies are recorded at 1080/30p, or at 60i for optimal playback
on many HDTVs when connected to the HDMI output. For the first time in a
Nikon HD-SLR, users have the ability to record stereo sound through the
internal microphone or attach an optional external microphone, such as
Nikon’s ME-1, through the dedicated microphone terminal.
The Vari-Angle LCD provides the opportunity to gain a unique
perspective for video, while full-time autofocus helps users maintain
sharp focus that is critical for HD video. While recording, the contrast
detect AF system has the ability to use normal or wide area AF, track a
subject through the frame, or use face priority AF to make sure faces
are always in focus.
NIKKOR, Speedlight and System Compatibility
The creative potential for the D5200 is unlimited when combined with
the versatility of Nikon’s legendary NIKKOR optics and powerful system
accessories. Compatible with Nikon’s dedicated DX-format lenses and more
than 50 FX-format lenses as well as Nikon’s Speedlight System, the
Nikon D5200 puts the ability to create stunning images and HD video at
the user’s fingertips.
New optional WR-R10 and WR-T10 Wireless Remote Controllers
The D5200 is also compatible with a new wireless radio frequency
remote accessory, the WR-R10 and WR-T10 Wireless Remote Controllers.
When using these devices, the camera can be triggered remotely, making
it ideal for group shots, remote applications, or to reduce shake when
the camera is mounted on a tripod. This new wireless remote system
operates from a radio signal rather than infrared light, dramatically
increasing functionality and range. Now the camera can be triggered from
up to 20 meters (66 feet) away, and a direct line of sight is not
necessary. The remotes also enable the bulb function for long shutter
applications, as well as functions of the camera that are affected by a
half-press of the shutter, including the engagement of the AF system or
starting and stopping video capture. The WR-R10 transceiver can be
connected to the accessory terminal of many Nikon D-SLR cameras
including the new D5200, D3200 and D600. For those cameras that feature a
10-pin terminal, the optional WR-A10 adapter can be fastened to allow
use of the wireless remote controllers.
