A fantastic camera all around.
Been shooting for 6 years now. Upgraded to the Nikon D3200 back in Dec 2012. Compared to my previous DSLR I couldn't be happier. While all the functions stay relatively the same, the boost in image size and quality is a huge bonus. I was immediately impressed by the D3200 right out of the box but decided to give it some time before commenting on it so as to be fully familiarized with the camera. I would recommend this camera as an affordable first for anyone looking for high resolution images as either a hobbyist or a budding pro. I myself have been shooting pro with the D3200 as my main camera and customers are never dissatisfied with the images it produces.

Very Nice Camera
I'm not a professional photographer but the 24 mp sounds great, I got a very good deal for d3200 and 18-55 mm and 55-200 mm, the wireless mobile adaptor and the bag, great photos especially when displayed on HDTV or retina display, easy to use, I only had to buy a 40mm micro lens because i love to capture close tiny objects. the idea of using my iPhone to take a photo is great, one thing is that using the smartphone to take a picture will embed the location with photos, unfortunately the app embed wrong locations, according to iTune the app should stamp photos with GPS location, it worth to have it working and save 400$ for that GPS adaptor.

Darn good camera
I bought this camera several months ago after losing nearly all my pictures I took on an iPhone 4 in Ukraine. I decided that when I go back I would have a decent camera and my laptop backed up... Yeah, I was an idiot. Anyway, after getting this camera, I discovered I had a knack and love of photography. This camera has really been helpful in learning about and having an absolute ball with photography. I would recommend this for anyone who is ready to get their feet wet and as a great back up for any photographer.

Best Entry Level DSLR on the market
So I saw this camera at a local shop in a package deal for $800 with the 55-200VR lens, memory card, Vanguard case and 2 Hoya UV filters. Went online and did a few solid hours of research on every blog and review site I could find on the best entry level DSLR on the market and the huge majority said the d3200 was the way to go. Went and bought it the next day and haven't regretted it for a second. Now it's been about 3 weeks and I've fallen in love with this camera. While it's my first SLR I've always had a passing interest in good composition and photography in general. Since buying it I have purchased just about every accessory available including the wireless adapter, circular polarizer filter, spare memory card and battery, Manfrotto BeFree tripod, Black Rapid R Sport strap....by far the best purchase was getting the 35mm 1.8f Nikon lens which has replaced the kit lens for me and has really opened things up for me with it's low light capability. After learning all the features and getting the hang of ISO, aperture and shutter speed I am constantly amazed by this camera's abilities. With quality glass I don't see myself ever outgrowing this camera until it dies since I am not a professional and value the smaller size of the DX series as opposed to a full frame DSLR. Everyone I have shared the camera with has been impressed, including a friend who is a professional photographer who manages a large studio and exclusively uses Canon. Cannot recommend this camera highly enough!

The best entry level DSLR available.
This is my eigth camera, and my first Nikon product ever. I will never buy any other brand. The D3200 has the highest true pixel count of any entry level camera in the world. The versatility and ease of use will have a diligent beginner shooting professional quality photographs in weeks. My primary focus, as a television producer, is videography. I am exceptionally pleased with the clarity and color reproduction of the D3200, especially with the AF Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4-5.6G lens. The layout and intuitiveness of the camera is without a doubt the best I have seen.
