Nikon D3200 DX-format Digital SLR Shown; To Be Available by the Month-End

April 19, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Looks like it’s a day of high-end cams! We told you about Samsung’s devices a while ago and now we have Nikon bringing to the open their new D3200 model – a DX-format digital SLR.

The notable advancement flaunted by the device is the new Nikon DX-format CMOS image sensor providing up to a pixel count of 24.2-million pixels.

The Nikon D3200 will also feature an EXPEED 3 image-processing engine which you usually get to see only on the high-end camera prototypes. The new ‘Guide mode’ will help even novices to capture stunning HQ images, including that of low-light to fast action frames, with ease. These features will likely make the exquisite D3200 a darling for those who love outdoor and indoor shots.

The Nikon D3200 touts many superior features from its predecessor – the D3100. Apart from the hike in the pixel count to 24.2 million pixels compared to the 14.2-million pixels in D3100, the Nikon D3200 has advanced to a standard sensitivity of ISO 100–6400 and a Hi 1 setting akin to ISO 12800 specifications. Remember that the D3100 model only had ISO sensitivities of ISO 100–3200.

Shutterbugs may also be pampered by the ‘live view button’ that allows swapping between four AF-area modes: Normal-area AF, Wide-area AF, Subject-tracking AF, or Face-priority AF.

Short film makers can use the camera for creating footages of full HD experience of HQ 1080p video at 24 or 30 fps. It also has HDMI port for a direct connection with HDTV.

Nikon has assured a dust-free imaging with a most recent Image Sensor Cleaning function and Airflow Control System. The rig is also compatible with devices running on Google’s Android OS. That means they can be connected via Wireless Mobile Adapter WU-1a for easy transfer of images and wireless control.

The company claims the D3200 can take about 540 shots per charge with the EN-EL14 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery.

You can grab one of the Nikon D32oo either in the black or red outfit later this month. The camera will come along with the versatile AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR image stabilization lens for an SRP of $699.95.

You can also upgrade by adding an optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter to the bunch for $59.95. However, we hear this accessory will be only available by late May 2012.

Tell us: are you going for the new D3200 ?
