Nikon D5200 brings higher-end features to DSLR line
Posted on 6 Nov 2012 at 09:55, by Gareth Halfacree
Nikon has officially unveiled its latest digital SLR, the D5200, designed to offer a cheaper alternative to its high-end D-series models.
Based around a 24.1 megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor linked to an EXPEED 3 image processing engine, the D5200 has selectable ISO sensitivity from 100 to 6,400 expandable to 25,600. A new autofocus system provides 39 points of focus with nine cross-type sensors and a 2K-pixel RGB colour sensor linked to the Scene Recognition System is also included - something usually only found on high-end camera models.
As well as high-resolution stills, the D5200 supports video recording in 1920x1080 Full HD resolution, at up to 60 frames per second in interlaced mode. A manual recording mode is also included, providing SLR-like shutter control during video recording, as well as a continuous shooting mode which captures full-resolution still images at up to five frames per second.
The rear of the camera includes a 3in variable angle LCD screen for image review and framing during live view shooting, along with the usual physical viewfinder. The camera will be sold alongside Nikon's existing D5100.
In addition to the camera itself, Nikon announced the launch of the WU-1A Wireless Mobile Adapter which allows the device to connect to Android or iOS mobile devices for image sharing or remote control, along with a Wireless Remote Controller which uses radio frequency transmissions rather than infra-red for non-line-of-sight control.
The D5200 is expected to launch in the UK in December at a price of £720 body-only or £820 with a kit 18-55mm VR lens.
