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 plan to use the lens with both the D3200 and with the D4X (when issued). I have a AF-S 18-200 but does not seem to be able to blur effectively. I would like to get a very good lens with a fixed focal lens. My research tells me that a Nikkor 85 mm AF-S would be be best. However, I remember from my DX2, the focal length is changed. Is it changed in the same way with the D3200. Seems if I wanted to reproduce what I got from my Leica 90 mm lens for the 35 mm film camera, then I should pick something like 55 mm in there AF-S since the effective length will be close to the 90. So to recap: Does both the D3X and D3200 lengthen the lens by a factor of 1.5X? And can you tell me a few excellent lens that will work well from 3 to 6 feet - fast with good bokeh? Cost not a factor and I don't want to use a the very long lens recommended by Kent Rockwell for outdoor head and shoulders portrait. Sorry if I seem confused but I am really confused and would like to nail down the answer before I buy another expensive lens. Thanks.

Answer: 
You have a pretty good understanding of the lenses and how they function. In order to get good bokeh one must control the depth of field fairly tightly. The Nikkor 85mm lenses do a great job for that on the FX format cameras. The same lens will function as a longer focal length lens on a DX format camera. Depth of field is also affected by the aperature setting. If you are purchasing an FX lens to use on a DX camera you will probably want a shorter focal lentgh lens like the 55 mm you mentioned. Below is a very good summary of depth of field that I picked up somewhere on the Internet. I am sorry I cannot properly credit the author but the information is very good. Lastly, take your camera to a local camera shop and ask to test one or more lenses. Virtually any good camera store will allow you to do this and you can see for yourself what kind of bokeh you are getting at various distances using different aperatures.

Depth of Field (DOF) rules of thumb:
1. As the aperture gets larger the DOF get shorter. The inverse is true as the aperture gets smaller the DOF gets larger.
2. As focal length gets longer the DOF get shorter. The inverse is true as the focal length gets get shorter the DOF gets larger.
3. As the sensor/film format gets larger the DOF get shorter. The inverse is true as the sensor/film format gets smaller the DOF gets larger.
4. As the distance to the object gets shorter the DOF get shorter. The inverse is true as the distance to the object gets farther the DOF gets larger.

Answer: 
The D3X is a FX camera and has no crop factor. The D3200 is a DX (APSC) camera and has the 1.5 crop factor. If you are plannung to get a D4 that is a FX camera. The close distance you want to shoot I would recommend the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G. If you were just looking for a lens for the D3200 then get the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G, however it will not be suitable for the D4 as the camera will detect it is a dx lens and you will have the effect of the 1.5 crop factor. Good news is it only cost $200.

Answer: 
  Yes, you can.  According to the manual, non-AI lenses (those made before 1977, that use the “rabbit ears” shoe to couple to the aperture ring to the camera's light meter) won't work, but the manual is incorrect on this point.  See the picture, below, of my ancient non-AI Vivitar 85–205mm zoom lens mounted on my D3200.  I've also successfully used the stock 50mm f1.4 lens from my F2, and a 28mm f3.5 Nikkor as well; all early 1970s vintage, all non-AI.

  You have to set the camera to “M” mode to use any of these older “non-CPU” lenses.  In any other mode, the camera will complain about no lens being mounted, and refuse to operate.

  There's no automatic exposure or even metering to help you with manual exposure; you're on your own with that.  But it's not too difficult.  Just set the aperture, shutter, and ISO settings to something plausible, take a shot, look at it on the screen, and, if necessary, adjust accordingly and repeat.  Two advantages to a modern digital camera over a stone-aged film camera are that it costs you nothing to “waste” shots, and you can see the results immediately.

  There's no automatic focus, either, and focusing is a bit tricky.  The viewfinder isn't really made to support manual focusing, and isn't nearly as helpful as one on an older SLR that isn't meant to be autofocus.

  Somewhere in the settings, there's an “Electronic Rangefinder” that can be enabled, which, once you figure out how to use it, is helpful for manual focusing.  The catch is that it works in every mode except “M”, which is the only mode in which the camera will work with these older lenses.  Not a big problem, just turn the dial to any other mode, focus with the rangefinder, then flip back to “M” mode to take the picture.

You have to be careful when you're purchasing lenses because some people out there bought non-motorized lenses expecting them to auto-focus when they can't.

Sorry, very unhelpful. There is NO way to adjust exposure in video while in M mode. Apparently one must go to "S mode" then adjust and lock exposure (make sure in "Buttons, AE-L/AF-L button is onAE lock (Hold). Also, don't forget to go to the menu and make sure "Auto ISO sensitivity control" is set to off.

Answer: 
  Contrary to what the manual itself claims, what another user has posted, and what I am sure a Nikon representative would say, were one to answer; non-AI lenses do work just fine on this camera, albeit with some expected limitations.

  All the pictures attached to this post, I took with my D3200, with ancient, early 1970s-vintage, non-AI lenses; except for the last one, showing my non-AI Vivitar 85-205mm, ƒ3.8 zoom lens mounted on my D3200, which I took using my cell phone camera.

  The camera will only operate in “M” mode with these lenses; in any other mode, it flashes a notice that says, “Lens not attached”, and the shutter will not operate.

  You're on your own as far as exposure settings; the camera affords you no help, there; other than the ability to take a shot, adjust the exposure, take another shot, and so on until you get it right.

  Focusing is also tricky.  The viewfinder is not nearly as helpful as that of an older non-autofocus SLR such as you are probably accustomed to.  “M”, the only mode in which the shutter will operate with these older lenses, is also the only mode in which the electronic rangefinder feature is unavailable.  I have found, however, that I can flip the mode dial to a neighboring setting, focus with the rangefinder, then flip back to “M” to take the picture.

Answer: 
Nikon offers two types of autofocus digital camera bodies: those with a built-in focus drive motor and those which require a lens to have a motor. Cameras such as the D3200 do not have a focus motor in it so they require the lens to have the focusing motor – an “AF-S” lens. While these bodies can use a lens with no focus motor (an “AF” lens) you would have to manually turn the focus ring to bring the subject in to sharp focus.

Answer: 
  There are at least two or three third-party GPS units that are made to work with this camera.  I bought one through Amazon, at the same time I order the camera itself.  I don't know if it's as good as Nikon's GP-1, but at 1/6 the price, it seems to work well enough for me.

  It is also worth noting that one of the features currently supported by Nikon's WU-1a wireless adapter and the related Android application (Nikon's “WirelessMobileUtility” or “WMU”) is to allow the Android device's GPS to be used to geotag pictures taken with the D3200.  It's apparent to me that anything that the GP-1 can do, the WU-1a paired with an appropriate Android device can do also, albeit somewhat less elegantly.

  I can see some possibility of interfacing a normal, standalone GPS device to the D3200, and having it work exactly the same as a GP-1.  The GP-1 apparently interfaces via a standard USB interface; and I am given to understand that it outputs its data in standard NMEA format.  I suspect that there are any number of generic GPS receives out there that can be configured easily to output standard NMEA output over a USB interface, in exactly the same way that the GP-1 does.

This is probably the mother of all stupid questions but, I didn't notice controls for aperture and shutter speed. Does the D3200 have that? I apologize in advance for my MASSIVE ignorance if it does.

Answer: 
Nokon D3200 is a masterpiece for entry level beginners. I just purchased it last month and it is so easy and convenient to operate. The Guide mode is simply fantastic till you become an expert in understanding and cotroling the exposure traingle (Aperture, Shutter speed & ISO).
Explore modes P S A M. A - for aperture control and S for Shutter speed.

I am planing to buy the D3200 but I heard that not all lenses work with that new system, I know there are 2 Nikkor lenses in the range of 24-85mm one of them is AF and the other is AF-S.. The AF-S doesn't have any reviews yet, please advice.

NB: I need this lens for architecture photography purpose from a very high point.

Answer: 
Sue, The 24-85 D lens on the 3200 will be manual focus. Reconsider using an AF-S lens to utilize Auto focus. For architecture you should consider a Nikon Perspective Control lens. You would be better served perhaps with a D7000 or D90. They offer a lot more flexibility in lens use including the superior manual F mount PC lenses. Good luck in your photo adventures.

Answer: 
The D3200 is sold with the AF-S Zoom-NIKKOR 18-55mm as a kit. Some dealers put kits together with different lenses, sometimes one or two. A memory card is not included in the accessories supplied by Nikon. Please contact your dealer because sometimes they offer bundles that include a memory card.

Answer: 
The great thing about digital cameras is you have instant feedback. Go ahead and take the shot and review it to check your depth of field. Then adjust and shoot again. Have fun experimenting in Manual mode with the Auto ISO turned off.

Answer: 
No, the depth-of-field preview is not a big problem for the most part. I've taken over 50,000 photographs with my Nikon dSLRs and only once or twice did I feel a use or desire for it.

However, if you do a considerable amount of portraits, you might need it and you will need it if you routinely do close-up photographs.
