Thinking about taking your casual photography to a little advance, professional level?
Well, you’d need a DSLR camera for that, and some proper training!
Nikon recently announced the next model for its entry-level DSLR lineup called D3200, the name sounds familiar, right? In terms of looks, it is similar to Nikon’s D series DSLR camera which have already attained ”hot selling” adjective across the globe but the D3200 won’t be sold as a camera replacement but as a different range of SLR cameras because of its features.
To begin with, Nikon D3200 has a 24-megapixel sensor which makes it Nikon’s highest resolution camera after the 36-megapixel D800. It can take up to 4 continuous shots per second, record 1080p videos at 30 fps, and 720p videos at 60 fps in both H.264 and .mov format. As of part of Nikon’s “new DSLR design,” the D3200 flaunts a dedicated movie record button; on one go, it can record about 20 minutes of videos without any memory issues.
Nikon D3200 flaunts several features that are not usually seen in entry-level SLR camera; for one, it has an external mic input, and is compatible with WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter (sold separately). The dongle will enable you to connect D3200 with your Android Smartphone for quick ad hoc file transfer even if a Wi-Fi connection is absent. Also, you can use your phone’s display as a viewfinder and shutter trigger. At this time, only Android devices are supported but Nikon has made it clear that they would be releasing an app for the iOS platform soon, maybe in Autumn.
Nikon will start selling the D3200 camera in US from this month with a price tag of $699.95 along an 18-55mm kit lens. In Europe, the camera will ship around mid-may and would cost €775.00/£649.99 with and €667.00/£559.99 with the 18-55mm kit lens. Also, this time around, Nikon is adding some flare to its DSLR lineup, the new D3200 would come in glossy red, if you’re fed up with using black gadgets then adding a red SLR camera to your collection doesn’t sound like a bad idea. Because of heavy demands, you might have to wait to lay your hands upon the red beauty, but Nikon assures, you wouldn’t have to pay more.
