An excellent camera. Period. For an "entry-level" product the Nikon D3200 sure doesn't show it! Photo quality is unbelievable and the camera operates fast in almost any lighting condition. I got the kit which comes with an additional lens (55-200mm zoom lens) and I really like both it and the default 18-55mm lens. Switching between lenses is fast, easy and I'd say even fun. The bag the kit comes with is also very nice. Make sure you get a large-capacity class 10 sd card and you're good to go. Battery life isn't bad either when you're just using the viewfinder but you also have the option to use the camera like a point-and-shoot as well (live view mode.) I'd say this camera is great for anyone. Novice, intermediate and professional photographers alike, the D3200 is easy to operate but has enough features there to please anyone who wants to gain a higher understanding or make use of things like aperture, shutter speed, manual focusing image adjustment etc.. This digital wonder is affordable and worth every penny. I am so happy with it! April 9, 2014
Everything you need to work with and more............................. Well set up, easy to follow, has great HD........... March 21, 2014
Love it for a beginner photographer! I've recently bought this for Christmas 2013. I've been using a Nikon D80. VERY different as in buttons. Looks and feels different. I'm now used to my camera and it's weird using my dads. I've been taking pictures with my Nikon Coolpix, but it doesn't do the job. I do ride horses and this it's light and small, it is easier to take to the barn! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the wifi part! I did buy the $60 dollar Wifi thing that goes with it. Makes it a whole lot easier instead of emailing yourself 200 pictures. I defiantly recommend this! I plan on buying some more lenses as I want telephoto lenses for action pictures. The lenses that come with the camera (AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR) doesn't really take "good" action pictures in my opinion. February 25, 2014
D3200 Awesome camera! I am very pleased to have purchased a Nikon digital camera, finally. I recommend this one for any newbie photographer, it is very easy to operate, thank you Nikon! February 14, 2014
Nikon D3200 This is a great product to buy! If your beginning in Photography or Film Making its the perfect camera to start with. Its an excellent camera. December 30, 2013

I asked about the possibility of using studio flashes with the D3200. Someone answered "Yes" but gave no details as to how. I shoot in the studio with several monolights. Can I control them with the D3200 and if so how, in what mode? Do I need an add on device? I don't see anything listed and there is no sync cord hookup on the camera.

Answer: 
Since the D3200 does not have a commander mode the camera cannot control remote flashes. However if there is a speedlight that is being used that has commander mode, this flash can control the remote flashes. This is also made possible if the SU-800 is attached to the D3200 as well.

I recently purchased the NikonD3200 and wanted to know which SD card write speed is best, or most appropriate for the D3200. SD card maximum write speed ranges from 30mb/sec up to 95mb/sec. It makes sense that 95mb/sec is better then 30mb/sec, but there's a range of speeds in between that offer significant cost savings. For example, is 45mb/sec, 60mb/sec or 90mb/sec sufficient?

Answer: 
Its called cropping an image. In the D3200 Retouch menu, it is listed as trim. While in playback mode, press the OK button to bring up the retouch menu, then highlight trim, and hit OK. Follow the instructions at the bottom of the screen. After the portion of the image that you want is saved, the image will automatically zoom in. The camera save the crop copy including the original. See page 152 of your manual.

Answer: 
Hi, first of all the D3000 is an outdated model. The decision between a J1 is simple, if you eventually want to use third party lenses or at least some of the better Nikon ones without buying a ridiculous expensive converter you should consider the D3200. The J1 is smaller than the d3200 so if you want a cam that you can easily carry around and of you travel a lot that might be better for you, however in terms of image quality the d3200 really is the only choice. and if you are really interested in Photography a DSLR is the only choice and you wont care for those extra 500 gram to carry.
I personally own the d3100 and a D3S and i am very happy.

Hope i Helped

PS: English is not my native language so forgive me if i made a few mistakes.

What about if I want to buy the Bower 14mm f/2.8 Lens to be attached to my Nikon D3200?
the concern is related to:

1) I will have real 14mm ? because if I attach a FX lens it usually will be bigger mm because my camera is DX
2) Do you think in a negative aspect of this lens for my Nikon D3200? I know that I will have manual focus...

Thanks in advance

You can use the cards you have if they are class 6 or higher (reccomended) , you will see a 4 or 6 or 10 with a C around the number. I would suggest a tleast a 8gb class 10. Here is a link, scroll to the bottom and you will see a list of approved memory cards.

I plan on using the HD video capabilities on this camera, but I'm having a really difficult time searching through many websites looking for "just the right memory card"...

"The following SD memory cards have been tested and approved for use in the
D3200. Cards with class 6 or faster write speeds are recommended for movie
recording. Recording may end unexpectedly when cards with slower write
speeds are used."

Sandisk, Lexar, Panasonic and Toshiba cards have been tested with the camera, but I'd like to think that Sandisk would be the best choice here, but I would like to hear from the experienced photographers out there. What has worked for you? and what is the difference between SDXC and SDHC? Is one better than the other? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Answer: 
If you are going to shoot alot of video get the San Disk Extreme Pro SDXC UHS1, (make sure you buy a compatible card reader). Video eats up space on the memory cards so get the biggest you can afford.

Feature Request:  Rangefinder in “M” (full manual) mode…

  The viewfinder on the D3200 is not nearly as useful for manual focusing as the viewfinders on more primitive cameras, such as my forty-year-old Nikon F2.  It wouldn't be expected to be, of course, because it is to be expected that this camera will nearly always be used in autofocus mode with a lens that supports that.

  There is the electronic viewfinder feature, about which I have found contradictory information in the owner's manual.  Page 142 states that the electronic viewfinder is not available in the “M” mode; and this seems to be correct.

  Page 169 lists types of non-CPU lenses which can be used in a limited way on the D3200.  It indicates that non-CPU lenses can only be used in “M” mode, and my experience seems to indicate that this is correct.  It also indicates that most of them (anything f5.6 or faster) can be used with the electronic rangefinder.

  Here's the rub:  As previously noted, “M” mode is the one mode in which the rangefinder is unavailable, and it is the only mode in which this camera will work with non-CPU lenses.

  I've been experimenting with some of my ancient lenses that go with my F2.  These are non-AI lenses, which, according to page 169 of the manual, cannot be used with this camera at all.  In fact, they work just fine, as well as there is any reason to expect that they might.  The first picture attached to this post was taken through an early 1970s-vintage, non-AI Vivitar 85-205mm zoom lens, attached to my D3200.  The second picture shows that lens mounted on my D3200; note the 1970s-style aperture-coupling shoe.  It's not at all clear why non-AI ought to be an issue.  The non-AI lens cannot couple with the meter, of course, because the D3200 doesn't support coupling via the “rabbit ears” shoe on the aperture ring.  But then the D3200 doesn't support the AI linkage used by slightly-newer (1977+) lenses and cameras, either, does it?

  Anyway, I'm getting off the topic.  The electronic rangefinder doesn't work in “M” mode, which is the only mode in which this camera will work with older lenses like these.  I find that with one of my old lenses mounted, if I turn the mode dial to any other setting, the rangefinder is there, and works just fine.  I can focus using the rangefinder, but then I have to flip the dial back to “M” to take the picture.  A bit needlessly cumbersome, but it works.

  So why is the rangefinder not available in “M” mode?  Surely this is not a physical or mechanical limitation of the camera's hardware, but of how it's programmed in the firmware.  Page 42 of the manual seems to hint at the reason for this issue:  The same indicator that would be used for the rangefinder is used for exposure metering.  Apparently, the choice was made to preserve light metering capacity instead of rangefinder capacity in this mode.  I guess that makes sense, if someone wants to use manual exposure control wit a supported autofocus lens, but exposure metering doesn't work anyway with my old lenses, since they have no way of reporting their aperture setting to the camera; so a feature that would be very useful is sacrificed for the sake of a feature that doesn't work anyway in this context.

  Is there any good reason why a firmware update couldn't be issued that would allow a choice in “M” mode between exposure metering or the rangefinder?  That's the request to which this long-winded posting leads, that a future (hopefully not-too-distant) firmware update for the D3200 will allow me to use the rangefinder in “M” mode, in a less cumbersome way than switching to another mode to focus and then switching back to “M” to take the picture.

I'm using a manual flash and attempting to determine my f/stop using the f/stop = GN/distance formula. I do fine when I'm with in 10 feet but it's a big guess any further than 10 feet.

Can AEB & HDR (at least in some extends) be added to D3200 as software/firmware update by Nikon?

Last year I bought a Nikon D3200 to start photography. as it was mentioned entry level camera, so it was expected that there are some technical/physical differences in pro models i.e. metallic body, faster shutter speed, more no. of frames per second, multiple memory cards, higher resolution/quality and so on.
Recently I learned about HDR and AEB, as it is not supported by D3200 I tried to do manually by adjusting Ev but due to time lag to take next photo in this way and some slight change in the scene, it didn't work so good.
I believe there are some features of AEB and HDR which can be added as software/firmware upgrade of D3200. it can record up to 4FPS, almost every feature in the camera like Ev & shutter Speed & F# can be set by software and Fn button is also capable of being programmed and used for this purpose.
Is there any physical restriction to add AEB and HDR capability to D3200?
And hereby I request Nikon to mention adding AEB and HDR features to D3200 in next software/firmware update.

With thanks in advance.

"Performing Noise Reduction" message during night time long exposure?

I was out shooting the other day with my D3200, it was dark out so I was taking long exposure shots, and after i pressed the shutter release, a few seconds passed with the shutter open, than a message came on the screen "Performing Noise Reduction". I was using a very low ISO (100) so wasn't sure why I would be experiencing noise in the first place. I have done nighttime long exposure shots before without ever seeing this message. I don't think its an error message, as my images turned out just fine, but I was wondering why it is doing this when my ISO is so low and i shouldn't be experiencing hardly any noise anyway? Also, I noted that this message prolonged the shutter release. If i chose a 30 second shutter speed, the 30 seconds started after this message appeared, which was a few seconds after i pressed the shutter release, and the shutter opened, is this normal?
