Shooting photos and videos is about more than capturing memories. A great camera brings your creative vision to life with striking clarity. The Nikon D5200 is exactly that type of camera—an exceptional HD-SLR designed to draw exciting new perspectives out of everyone who shoots it. Optimized for creativity, streamlined for flexibility, it'll awaken your passion and inspire some of the most spectacular photos and videos you've ever captured.

Showcase your artistry

Vari-angle display, built-in HDR, special effects and filters

Creativity and flexibility were considered in every aspect of the D5200. It has a 921,000-dot Vari-angle display that lets you shoot from just about any position—hold the camera overhead for a view above a crowd, at ground level for an interesting close-up of a flower, or just enjoy easier video recording and self portraits. For shots that have both very dark and very bright areas, D5200 includes built-in HDR (high-dynamic range). It takes two shots at different exposures and blends them into one amazing image. And an exciting collection of built-in effects and filters opens new possibilities for expression: isolate a single color, explore black & white, posterize, miniaturize—the creative techniques pros spend years mastering are now conveniently at your command.

Capture life's brilliance

24.1 MP DX-format CMOS sensor and renowned NIKKOR lenses

Perhaps your greatest inspiration will be the spectacular quality of every photo and video you shoot with the D5200. Its highly sensitive 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS image sensor captures your vision with lifelike brilliance—marvel at the vibrant colors and razor-sharp detail, even in low light. Legendary NIKKOR lenses, marvels of clarity and quality, are the perfect companion for the D5200, drawing peak performance out of the sensor. Our intelligent Scene Recognition System compares your shot against an onboard database for optimum exposure, and EXPEED 3, the processing power in our acclaimed D4, makes it all happen in an instant.

Share your creations in an instant

Optional WU-1a Wireless Adapter for Wi-Fi photo sharing and camera control

The thrill of creating a great photo is topped only by the excitement of sharing it. With the D5200, you'll have many great photos to share, so we made it easy. Just add the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter and instantly transfer your shots to a smartphone or tablet via Wi-Fi. Then share your favorites online as usual: email them, upload them to your favorite social networks or photo-sharing site like Nikon's my Picturetown. You can even use your smartphone or tablet as an external “live view” monitor to see what the camera sees and fire the shutter—perfect for getting into photos instead of always shooting them.

Note: These functions require an Android or iOS device and Nikon's free Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility app, available on Google Play and the iTunes App Store.

Take your vision to video

High-quality Full HD (1080p) video recording capabilities

The D5200 includes Nikon's latest innovations for creating beautiful videos with virtually no choppiness. D-Movie mode now features Full HD 1080p 60i for visibly smoother sequences, a first for Nikon HD-SLRs. Full-time-servo AF (AF-F) and subject-tracking AF work together to keep moving subjects sharp and in focus, and face-priority AF instantly detects and tracks up to 35 faces in a scene. D5200 also has a built-in stereo microphone that can be controlled automatically or manually via 20 incremental steps, another first for Nikon HD-SLRs. Whether you shoot short clips or cinema-style movies, the D5200 makes it easy to take your projects to the next level.

Ultra-fast, accurate shooting

No matter where your subject is within the frame, the D5200’s 39-point wide-area autofocus system keeps it in focus so you can fire up to 5 fps. 3D Subject Tracking, powered by a 2,016-pixel RGB sensor, locks onto your subject and tracks it with exceptional accuracy. Improvements to the D5200's optical viewfinder make it easier to identify and capture fast-moving subjects, even when panning the camera.

Included 18-55mm NIKKOR lens

When asked why they choose Nikon gear, pros and serious shooters consistently mention NIKKOR lenses among their reasons. The D5200 comes equipped with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens—an excellent lightweight, multipurpose lens for nearly all shooting situations and an ideal match for the camera's DX-format sensor.

Simple, intuitive operation

You'll be at home with the D5200 in no time. Using visual representations of each setting to show you exactly what's changing with each adjustment, a redesigned display groups your most frequently adjusted camera settings for faster access.

Long range remote control

Whether you're shooting a group portrait (that includes you) or an intricate macro shot, a remote control is one of the most convenient accessories you can have. The new WR-R10 and WR-T10 Wireless Remote Controllers communicate using radio frequencies instead of Infrared, so you'll have control even when there's no direct line of sight between devices.

A hobby that grows with you

Nikon’s HD-SLR system is endlessly expandable. From legendary NIKKOR lenses and Nikon Speedlights, your system can grow with you.

Great First DSLR! This camera is very good. I know people have said the quality of photo is dependent on the glass, but the body offers many features that help you achieve maximum potential out of your glass. The 39 autofocus points are great, the 24MP sensor does a great job capturing detail and getting sharp images. Video quality is good (1080p at 30fps) and the audio quality is decent (I would recommend an external mic if you're serious about audio quality. Installing firmware updates has been easy, and Lightroom 4 and 5 both recognize the RAW files, which I would consider a "must-have" post-processing app. I am happy with my purchase, and even though the D5300 is out and I have heard good things about bumps in image quality (due to the removal of the AA-filter, and the other features such as Wifi and GPS, I think this camera is still great, and that if those features are important to you, then upgrade to the D5300; but if not, you will be satisfied with the image quality and interface of this DSLR. July 24, 2014
Love it! I bought this camera in November of 2013. This is my first DSLR camera. I had used a Nikon d90 back in 2011,and I fell in love with the brand. I use to use film when I was younger,and wanted to branch out to the digital era. The camera took a bit of getting use to, but it has been the best purchase I have ever made. Since then I have bought several lenses for it, and now own a small photography business. This is a great camera,and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for one. May 4, 2014
"D5200 Built my Foundation as Professional Photographer Wanna be". Hi Everyone, I am one of the many happy and satisfied Nikon D5200 owner in the planet. This is my 1st DSLR camera since birth :). When I started using this, I feel like a professional photographer already. This camera has met all my expectations and delivers all the requirements as an entry level 'professional photographer wanna be'. Yes, I have a long way to go in photography, but just in case I wanna upgrade my DSLR I will still keep my D5200 with me, because this camera has “Built my Foundation”. April 27, 2014
Great Beginners/ Advanced Beginners Purchase When I purchased the D5200, I had never owned a DSLR or even a point and shoot, but I had done thorough research and figured out that this was the camera for me. This camera far exceeded my expectations: the 24 MP captures immense detail, the 1080p/60 fps recording is awesome (the fps is high enough to even get a little slow mo action going), the flip out screen is nice for those up high/ down low shots, and the list goes on. I was (and still am) very happy with my purchase, and my photography skills have gotten better as I have kept shooting. It might be time to step it up to the 7000 series and (eventually) to a full frame (D600?) .. Pros: 24 MP Flip out screen 1080p/60 fps video (with full shutter/aperture controls) 5 fps Color choices makes it more fun Perfect fit in the hand Easy interfaces/menus Nice button placements Nice Image Quality Cons: -BUFFER SIZE - only 6-7 RAW photos before the buffer gets filled.. This may not be a problem for everyone, but for people doing action/sports photography, this is kind of a drag -ISO noise - seems evident at even as low as 800 ISO -Live View kind of lags a little bit: takes a bit to switch to LV, a while to focus, etc.. but its LV so what can you expect.. -Flash button gets pushed alot accidentally while trying to change ISO, or just when changing grip -Can't change aperture size while in Live View In the end, the cons are just small things, and the pros greatly outweigh them. This is still an awesome camera April 5, 2014
Excellent Entry Level DSLR If you are looking for a decent entry level DSLR, this is it. Very good picture quality, compatible to wide variety of Nikkor lenses to suite your requirement. Camera has just the perfect grip and user friendly inter-phase and so high value for your money. It's better than D5300 and D7100 even, if you consider the specs and the difference in price.

In the manual, I read that bulb and something called 'time' shutter speeds are available in the 'M' mode on my D5200, but I didn't get anything else about it in the manual. Can anyone tell me what it means and how to use it?

Answer: 
Bulb mode can be use to keep the camera shutter open indefinitely. It is useful for long exposure photography. NIKON recommends that you first learn about how long exposure photography works before trying to perform it.You will also need to know how to use your camera manual settings. We have a few long exposure articles in our Learn & Explore library. click the link below. Many professional photographers upload videos tutorials to social networking sites.

Please advice on the following: Which lenses should I go for with this body 18-200mm OR 18-105mm VR DX AF-S Zoom Lens (Black) with 70-300mm VR ? as I want to avoid the dust and dirt inside the body after while. That`s based on my experience with Nikon D70. Since have I buy it several years ago as a just new on the market with lenses 18-70 & 55-300 and also 50 macro after while the mirrors on the Body get full of dust, dist and some kind of small hair must be probably get in when I changed those lenses. That`s why I think using one wide range lens can avoid such a thing on the inside of the body itself. Do you agree or please correct me if I am wrong..
Cause tried to clean it several times also put in the service for however that`s not still clean as it used to be which is actually visible on taken pictures.
Btw, please if those lenses got dirty by doing Zoom In & Out is there any way, chance to get rid of this, to get it clean ? Thank you for your help to make my decision much easier.

The 18-200 is better option. There are precaution you can take so that dirt does not get in to the body. Avoid constantly removing and attaching the lens. Avoid removing the lens in a dusty area. Unlike the D70, newer DLSR's today such as the D5200 has built in sensor cleaning.

1. When I want HDR it only works for one shot, the following shot the HDR setting is already off automatically!
Is there any way to make my last settings always until I change them again?
2. Why, but why the P mode doesn't has "auto" ISO? Normally I like to use P mode to have more options available but also having the possibility to have ereything "auto". Have to change the ISO forces me to use AUTO mode, which I don't as some features are not available.
3. Is there any way to store the pictures by month folders?
Thanks.

Answer: 
What you need is a “screw extractor” (Look it up on Amazon, or ask at your favorite hardware store.) and a power drill with a bit of the appropriate size. And the skill and confidence to drill into the broken screw without having the drill slip and damage the camera.

This is a delicate, and potentially-risky operation. What you do is drill a hole into the broken screw, insert the screw extractor into that hole, and then use the screw extractor to grip the screw and turn it out.

The drilling is the tricky part. I'm thinking something in the Dremel-type category might be better to use than a full-sized pistol-style power drill. You might even want to see if you can set up some broken screws of a similar size in a vise, and practice drilling into them, before you try drilling the one in your camera.

If so what are the settings to allow a speed > 1/200s. I have not found a way to increase the shutter speed greater than 1/200 with flash enabled...I just can't believe that one can't use a high shutter speed and flash on open or close of the shutter!

When mounting my D5200 on a tripod, and using the "AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR", is the camera's tripod mount sufficient enough? Or do I need some kind of additional support for the lens?

I am concerned about the weight of this lens and, when it is extended all the way, the amount of torque being put on the bottom of the camera body.

Answer: 
The image zoom in live view is only there to check focus, you cannot take the image that you see, to get that image you would have to either move the camera close or zoom in with your lens.

Both my lens and my body are only a month old. My AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, on my D5200, is mounted correctly, and I've been taking tons of pictures with it. However, the lens has a bit of rotational play in it. When I hold the body in one hand and the lens in the other, the lens can rotate just a bit. Is this normal?

for low light or when you want good bokeh (background blur)
AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED for those times you need extra reach. I tried to keep the choices affordable.
