Best beginner camera I hoped for This is called a beginners camera but I can't imagine anything better. Must get if you are just starting out like me! October 8, 2014
Wonderful beginner camera The quality of the pictures are excellent. Nice and clear, color is almost exact, it has great manual options that are easy to use, and is nice and light. The video however, is kind of difficult. It is nice and clear but almost every time I try and record something, it goes for about 5 seconds then says "Recording interrupted" and I have lost some good videos because of that. All that needs to change is the video problem, and the 55-200 kit coming in red. July 15, 2014
Excellent camera!! Absolutely stunning photos, full HD video and very easy to use! After doing research for quite some time I decided on the D3200, glad I did....cant beat the price either. July 15, 2014
Great shooting with ease I have bought this camera few days back, and m new to Nikon family, it is a great pleasure using this camera, easy to operate and finest at the quality July 1, 2014
NIKON IT'S THE BEST I bought it 4 months ago and change the small camera and my old film SLR... Now I have excellent pictures was taken with this camera, it's very easy to use and allows being creative. With a tripod, remote control and these basic lenses it's enough to start in this beautiful world of photography. But if you want to make more professional pictures in movement it's better to think to buy lenses with VR and now I bought a new lens with VR and the pictures in action are perfect. Good camera and good basic lenses by Nikkor. This is the cheapest bundle for to start with SLR cameras. Enjoy your pictures by NIKON. June 20, 2014

Answer: 
  No, you don't.  You can use the “Live View” mode to use the screen on the back of the camera instead of the optical viewfinder (See pages 80-87 in your manual), or you can just randomly hold the camera and shoot away without trying to sight it.  Nothing about how the camera works requires that you be looking through the eyepiece, or at the screen, for it to function.

  I did see, somewhere in the manual, the recommendation that the eyepiece be covered when not in use, to prevent light coming in that way from affecting the exposure control, but I have so far not found this to be a problem.  Your camera probably even came with the object pictured below, for this exact purpose; you slide the rubber eyecup up and off, and put this on in its place.

Answer: 
No, you do not have to use the Viewfinder/eyepeice to take pictures. You can use the LCD monitor to see a liveview of what you are taking pictures of. Just press the LV button on the camera to enter live view mode.

Answer: 
  DPI really isn't as meaningful to a camera as it is to other imaging devices, such as scanners or printers.  The D3200 takes pictures that are 6016×4000 pixels in size.  The EXIF information stored in these pictures identifies them as having a resolution of 300 DPI, but this doesn't usually have anything to do with the actual scale at which the original subject is rendered in this image.  If you were to print this picture at 300 DPI, it would make a picture that is 20 inches by 13⅓ inches—quite a bit bigger than most printers will work with.

  In printing a full-sized image from a D3200 on any normal printer, 600 DPI would be a more reasonable resolution at which to print it; this would make an image that is 10 inches by 6⅔ inches, which will fit nicely on a standard letter-sized piece of paper.

  I just now performed a crude experiment, to see about what distance range will produce a 300 DPI rendering of the actual subject using the stock 18-55 mm lens.  I did this by standing one yardstick on end, moving and focusing the camera at each end of the zoom range until the long direction of the finder covered 20 inches on that yardstick, and then using another yardstick to measure the distance from the front of the lens to the first yardstick.  With the lens zoomed in to 55 mm, the second yardstick was too short, by about a foot, so I estimate the distance at approximately four feet, or 48 inches.  With the lens zoomed out to 18 mm, I measured the distance at about sixteen inches.

  These were very rough measurements, of course.  If I really cared about rendering a particular scene at a specific DPI resolution, I would make much more precise measurements; or perhaps just include a ruler in the scene so that I could make calculations and adjustments to the photograph after the fact to bring it to the desired resolution.

Answer: 
  You can't, directly.  The D3200 takes pictures in the 3:2 ratio.  That's the size of the image sensor, and that's the size of every picture that it takes.

  But after you've taken a picture, it's easy to crop it to the 16:9 format.  While displaying the picture, just push the “OK” button, and scroll through the menu looking for a “Trim” item.  Once you're in the “Trim” command, use the “command wheel” (That's that wheel above the “Lv” button and to the right of the “AE-L/AF-L” button) to select the aspect ratio; 16:9 is one of the available choices.  You can use the zoom buttons to select how far in you want to crop the picture.

I recently bought a new D3200. Shooting right out of the box on auto mode and auto focus is producing slightly blurry images. I am holding the camera still and the object being photographed is stationary. The lighting is good as well. If I sharpen the images they look ok, but I shouldn't have to be editing every image for sharpness. I'm thinking about returning the camera. Can anyone help?

Answer: 
First of all, try cleaning the lens. Second, try using a tripod and even better a tripod with a remote shutter release so you aren't touching the camera at all eliminating the chance of camera shake. And if holding the camera, don't just push the shutter release all the way. Press it half way and let the camera do its job focusing. And if you are using a VR lens make sure it is turned on (I have made that mistake myself.). These are just some basic things to check so always refer to your manual and Nikon has some very helpful videos on the website.

Answer: 
  Between my forty+ year old Nikon F2 (no autofocus, no automatic exposure; everything totally manual), and my new D3200, I've only used a collection of much lesser digital cameras and camera phones, so I am pretty new to digital cameras of this sophistication.  Like you, I've got some new things to learn about the use of a modern DSLR.

  On my F2, of course, I know what my subject is, I know where I am focusing,and I know when I have properly focused on the subject.  The D3200 tries to do all the thinking for you, and sometimes, it doesn't get it right.  It does, however, give you some useful clues as to what it is doing.  Look through the viewfinder, and you'll notice a diamond-shaped pattern of black dots.  When you push the shutter release button halfway, some of those dots will briefly light up red; that tells you where the camera thinks your subject is; that tells you where the camera is going to try to focus.  If it's right, go ahead and press the button the rest of the way to take the picture.  If it's wrong, release the button and try again.  Sometimes, it takes a few tries to get the camera to identify the correct subject.

I'm looking to upgrade from a Coolpix L810. I do alot of outdoor photos, animals in action. I am not a pro. What camera would you recommend? I've seriously compared the D3200 & D5200 and am not sure if the almost $500 price difference is worth it for my needs or level of use. If anyone can give me their thoughts on either (pros & cons) I'd appreciate it. I don't want to regret an expensive purchase like this. Thank You!

Answer: 
Biggest difference for action shots, the D5200 shoots at 5fps compared to D3200 4fps.
You will then have to consider getting a zoom lens, that is where the expensive part comes in.

The D3200 has a guide mode feature to assist beginners with learning the basics of using the DSLR where as a D5200 has more features such as a custom settings menu. There are 24.2 megapixels in the D3200 and in the D5200 there is 24.1 megapixels. For further comparison, there is a comparison tool that will give further details.

Answer: 
  Yes, the D3200 can take pictures in the rain, until it gets too wet.

  And if you keep it out in the rain long enough, there's no limit to how wet it can get, but it won't get very wet before it stops working.

Answer: 
In order capture motion without blurring you will need to use a faster shutter speed. Try setting your D3200 to Shutter Priority (S) Shooting Mode. In this mode you control the shutter speed and the camera adjusts the aperture size accordingly. Information on using Shutter Priority mode on the D3200 starts on page 53 of the D3200 manual. If the lighting doesn't allow for a fast-enough shutter speed consider raising your ISO (manual page 51) or using the camera's built-in flash.

For more information on how shutter speed and aperture affect your photos check out this article:

Answer: 
Depends on what lens you are using, you will be limited by the lens and would therefore have to change other setting for example ISO to get a faster shutter speed.

Answer: 
  This is a function of the lens, not the camera.  This camera comes with an 18mm to 55mm zoom lens, which gives a decent moderate range.  You can buy other lenses that will fit this camera as well.

  Please note that in comparing the angle of a view that a given lens will produce on this camera to what a comparable lens would produce on an old-fashioned 35mm film camera, you need to multiply the focal length by a factor of 1.55 to adjust for the fact that this camera's sensor is smaller than a standard 35mm frame.  For example, the included 18-55mm zoom lens is equivalent to a {18,55} 1.55 × approximately 28mm to 85¼ zoom on a 35mm camera—that's a moderate wide-angle to a moderate telephoto range.  There are, of course, many other lenses that you can buy to use on this camera, covering a much wider range.

  As for comparing it to your cell phone camera, you really cannot in any useful manner.  That'd be rather like trying to compare a Ford Mustang GT to a child's tricycle.

  Your cell phone probably doesn't have any true optical zoom at all, but uses a “digital zoom” which simply means using a smaller portion of the sensor to simulate a longer lens.  At a digital zoom factor of 4:1, your cell phone is using a portion of the sensor that is only ¼ the full size in each direction, effectively using only 1/16 of the total area of the sensor, and reducing the effective resolution and quality of the picture by that amount.  You can get the same result by simply taking a picture at the 1:1 zoom setting, and later cropping the picture down to the portion that you want.

  The standard 18-55mm lens that comes with the D3200 gives you a true optical zoom ratio of 3:1.  That's less than the 4:1 that your phone purports to offer, but this is a true optical zoom, and however you have the lens set, you're using the full size and full resolution of your camera's sensor.  The resolution and quality of the image will be the same with the lens zoomed in to 55mm as with it zoomed out to 18mm.

  And, as with your cell phone, you can always crop the picture down later, to get an effective angle of view that you'd otherwise need a longer lens to get.  And starting from 24 megapixels of resolution, you've got a lot of room to crop in, and still have a result with better resolution and quality than you could ever hope to get from your cell phone.

Answer: 
The zooming of a lens is not the feature of the camera but a feature of the lens. Depending on which lens that is being used depends on how far the zooming may be.

Where would be the bet place to go to learn to operate my D3200, I have had it for a year and have managed to get it to a point where it takes pictures when it wants to, not when I want it to. Like I said I am complete ignorant to camera terms and workings.

Answer: 
  To control the shutter speed, set the mode dial to “M” or “S”.  The wheel on the back of the camera will then set the shutter speed anywhere from 30 seconds to 1/4000 of a second.  Please note that in “M” mode, it will be entirely up to you, also, to set the aperture and ISO, as necessary, for the lighting.  In “S” mode, the camera will set the aperture, as necessary.

When announced, the D3100 sales material had language which led me to believe it had this feature, so I pre-ordered it. But then found that it only had automatic exposure controls. I'd hate to repeat that mistake.
