Take it easy with the D3200

The 24.2-megapixel D3200 is absolutely ideal for memory keepers who want to move up from point-and-shoot to take advantage of the capability and versatility of a high-performance, high-resolution HD-SLR—and still enjoy all the automatic picture-taking ease and comfort of a compact.

The D3200 delivers incredibly colorful, detailed images, Full HD 1080p video, four frames-per-second rapid fire sequences, Live View and Nikon’s legendary Matrix metering, plus full compatibility with a lineup of NIKKOR lenses and Speedlights. And making all this performance practically automatic is an improved Guide Mode that’ll ensure you’ll be ready for all the memorable moments.

Guide Mode is designed to take you quickly and simply, step by step, through the camera’s setup to the means and methods of shooting and viewing still and video images. In short, superb results, zero intimidation factor; consider the D3200 a camera with ease and confidence built in.

And with a major fun factor ready to plug in: an optional accessory, the WU-1a wireless mobile adapter, enables you to quickly and automatically send your captured moments to your smartphone or tablet for sharing at a social media site or, via e-mail, with your personal social network. It’s really that easy: take the picture, transfer it, share it. And think of the variety of images you can capture with the wide-angle, telephoto, micro and prime NIKKOR lenses you can use with the new camera.

But, as they say on TV, that’s not all: the little Wi-Fi adapter will also allow you to control the D3200 from your smartphone or tablet (when you download a wireless utility app). From up to 50 feet away, you’ll be able to remotely trip the shutter as the D3200’s Live View screen appears on your phone or tablet, giving you the camera’s view of the scene. It’s a perfect technique for a self-portrait or all-inclusive group shot. Or you can set the D3200, fitted with a wide-angle lens, on a tripod at, say, the neighborhood block party or Saturday’s soccer game, then view the camera’s view on your phone and snap pictures as you choose.

D3200: megapixel power, creative possibilities and a no-fear Guide Mode to take you through every step.

And it comes in red.

Keeping Pace

The AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8G is the newest lens on the list of Nikon FX-format prime optics, a list that’s been growing to keep up with the popularity of the FX D-SLRs, with the D4 and D800 being the latest home run hitters in that lineup.

During the last two years, Nikon’s added a 50mm and an 85mm to their value-priced FX f/1.8 optics. Now the 28mm f/1.8G joins up with its own impressive features for stills and video, which include outstanding clarity and contrast, superb low-light performance, close focusing to 0.85 feet, Nano Crystal Coat to reduce ghosting and interior flare and Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC) for enhanced light transmission and superior color consistency.
