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.

Amazing Camera in an Affordable Package
I am new to photography and I must say that I am impressed with this camera. We purchased all the add ons such as a bluetooth GPS and Wifi adapter. After taking about 400 shots I decided to start taking some interesting photos. With just the kit lens this camera can take pictures that are so amazing that people didn't even believe me when I told them I took it. I thought I would need to spend thousands on a full frame camera with a good lens to get pictures that look like this. After I got these shots I went online and purchased the VR 55-200mm lens for $109 refurbished. To wind everything up... I had no idea that you could take pictures of this quality without spending far more money. I had played with DSLRs many years back and it never really amazed me. I have to say that for what I paid on Black Friday, I am amazed. This camera has me involved in a new hobby that I really enjoy. I feel great about taking this with me knowing that every picture I capture has the potential to be printed and framed on the wall.

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.
