I finally made the leap from a 35 mm SLR to a digital SLR (OK, so I'm old). I wanted to wait until an affordable digital SLR was available that approached film quality images. I am not disappointed. It is true that good things come in small packages. This camera is light weight, and the picture quality is breathtaking. I bought the 55-300 zoom along with the camera, and took some great pics of hummingbirds on our feeder. When you turn the camera on, it is ready to shoot almost instanly...no lag or delay as with some digital SLR's that friends have. We RV, and having a camera that is instantly ready to shoot is important to us...we take a lot of pics as we are rolling down the road. Nikon has hit it out of the park with this camera.

This is my first DSLR and I am glad to have it. I have never even had a 35mm camera so this is a brand new experience for me. So far this camera has been a point-n-shoot. Of course that is the only way to figure out how it works. The built in guide in the camera is very helpful. The number of features such as night shot, vibration reduction, red eye removal, are just a few of the features I have used and love. The number of pixels (24) is also fabulous, the amount of detail you can get is just amazing. The 4fps (frames per second) is also a great feature, this way you can always get the shot you are looking for, and not just a second or two too fast or too slow.

Easy to use DSLR
As a camera fanatic, I could not wait to get my hands on the D3200. When I first picked it up, it was very lightweight. The improved grip (from the D3100) made it a lot easier to pick up, even though the grip was just a little small, but that's ok. Taking photos with this camera is a simple as one, two, three. The video quality is outstanding, the best I have ever seen. The camera is now fully manually functional in video, so you can adjust your ISO, aperture, etc. while shooting video. Overall, for the price, this is one of the best DSLR's out there, and I highly recommend it to first users of DSLR's, who aren't quite ready to take on the challenge of a way more high-end and a more professional Nikon camera, such as the D4 or the D3x.

Superb quality from Nikon
The quality I have come to expect from Nikon just keeps getting better wit each new product offering especially with such a low cost DSLR. I have had the camera for about 2 weeks now and I have hardly been able to put it down. I have tried all the features and I am only limited by imagination and lens whic unfortunately will notx fit from one of my other 4 Nikon cameras. I have always been partial to film but this camera comes so close to reproducing the excitement fel when that first frame is developed and it feels like Chrstmas. Thanks again Nikon continue to Impress and keep the costs down for everyone. Even professionals need a break sometimes.

Packed with features.
Just bought this equipment, initial setup about 20 mins, went out to shoot, 24 megs pictures are awesome. closeup with macros are great, details of individual pollen dropping from a flower is captured. I have not tried the video functionality. I hope its great. 60fps will be great for slow motion captures. All these at 700 dollars is wonderful.

simply the best
I loved this product, It's worth more than the price I paid.

I bought this camera in order to achieve great pictures and it does a great job so far. Using automatic with a dslr is probably the biggest mistake. You have to learn to use it in manual in order to get the results that you want. The only problem is that it only has 11 focus points like the previous version (d3100). Otherwise it's a great product. Lean every single aspect of your camera and use it as your advantage in order to get stunning pictures.

This is my second Nikon DSLR. The first was a D40X. This is an excellent upgrade from the D40X which impressed me in its time. Shadow detail is much better with this camera and the colours are lovely. As with all the Nikon digital cameras, I can use my old manual focus Nikors which I will never part with. This camera does a lot to unlock the amazing capabilities of those old lenses. My favorite lens a Nikor Q 135 f2.8 amazed me on my old F4 and it still amazes me on this D3200.

affordable powerful camera
it's an entry level camera, yet perform as a professional photographer owned. i love it.

It's a Good camera for traveling around, and getting nice Photos for the size.

Great camera for where it sits!
This is a great product for where it lies. For an entry level camera and for under 600 dollars it exceeds almost all expectations.
Its commonly forgotten that this product is only an entry level camera, which should compare no where to say a D800 , otherwise it does very very well for itself.
I have owned this camera for over a year and i take a lot of fast paced sports shots. Surprisingly enough for a cheaper camera, this camera does a really good job. It also can grab some really clear shots with lots of colour and the best part is the clarity is seen in the video aspect as well. Video can be shot in 1080p at 30 fps and 60 fps at 720p in NTSC and 50fps in Pal which is exceptionally clear . This opens a lot of windows for people who love video also, allowing for slo mo and great looking videos to work with.
The camera is also very easy to navigate through also. This allows for quick changes in shutter speed, iso and exposure when changing light settings occur or flipping from pictures to videos.
For someone starting into photography, This is a great camera and you couldn't find one better with this much bang for its buck. You would be able to use this camera for many different photo aspects and be very happy with the outcome. You would be able to use this camera for along time without having to trade off for a different one.
For someone with experience in photography, they would get the same joy from this product, I hope that the D5200 is just as awesome!

Excellent first D-SLR
After conducting considerable research online and gathering opinions from more serious photographers, we decided to get the Nikon d3200 over the Canon T3i/T4i and over the various compact system cameras out there. While we have been a Canon compact camera family for years (and they are truly fantastic compact cameras), we chose Nikon over Canon for two reasons primarily: 1) the Nikon was easier to find cheaper and this matters given that both brands are so close in quality and 2) our research led us to believe that Nikkor lenses were a touch better for portraits than Canon (while Canon is a touch better for fast action and sports) and this setting matters most to our family. Moreover, despite amazing advancement for compact system cameras, we felt (and can since confirm) that D-SLRs capture the speed required for kids a lot better and can handle low light situations a lot easier. This Nikon d3200 is incredibly easy to use and with some very basic photography lessons (just from online browsing) you can learn to take some great pictures of what's important to you. One word of advice on this particular camera: after you become comfortable with it, go out and buy another lens as the camera's amazing capabilities overwhelm the basic kit lens, which is not bright or fast enough. An f/1.8 or better lens is really needed for great portraits and the walking-around 35mm equivalent prime f/1.8 lens is another great options for all-around shooting (amazing value for the price). All in all, a great camera that you can grow into and that is "deserving" of better glass.

Lots of Capabilities and Great features!
The Nikon D3200 Is and amazing camera! Stacking up at 24 megapixels for such a great price, and Being capable of taking 1080p video at 30fps is the same as what other more expensive cameras are less than capable of.
February 24, 2013
One of the many features that I like is the low light capability of this camera (12,800) quality of photos is very good. If you're moving up from a point and shoot camera, the 3200 is the one for you. The Auto feature is virtually goof proof and you can eventually explore the manual modes as you gain more confidence. Movie mode is excellent.

I needed a camera that I could take advantage of all the features, but would also be easy enough for my wife to get some point-and-shoot time without having to take a course on how to use it. After doing some research, I kept coming back to the D3200. Everything about this camera opened my eyes up. Price, quality, ease of use, features, accessories, etc. We finally decided to buy it and were amazed at everything we could get with it (3 lenses, case, 2nd battery, 2 filters, wifi adapter, remote) for just shy of $1000 CDN. After using it for a few weeks now, we're both completely happy with our purchase. The camera takes fantastic pictures even in the auto modes that the wife uses. Using this camera is becoming an addiction due to its excellent quality. Can't recommend it enough.

La mejor elección
Aparte de que Nikon tiene la mejor imagen que conozco, esta cámara cumple con las expectativas que todo fotógrafo principiante y avanzado puede esperar.
Aparte de ser un gran producto simplemente es la mejor elección a un precio accesible para todo aquel aficionado de la fotografía que desee inducirse a este magnifico trabajo.
Sigan mejorando día con día, para de esta manera seguir siendo los numero 1!!

Una calidad de fotografías que están unos pasos adelante de cualquier cámara compacta
Llevo poco tiempo usando está cámara réflex y estoy satisfecho con su desempeño y versatilidad, una interfaz fácil de manejar, excelente desempeño. La he puesto a prueba en distintos escenarios, cambios de velocidad de obturación etc.
Se pueden obtener resultados profesionales con los ajustes adecuados.
