Nikon D3200 digital SLR camera : Nikon introduces the D3200, a new easy-to-use entry-level D-SLR, boasting latest-generation Guide Mode with full HD video to deliver beautiful, high-quality pictures and cinematic quality movies. The Nikon D3200 is perfect for those looking to capture quality photos and videos. Whether you are starting a family or about to embark on a big trip, the Nikon D3200’s easy to understand functions mean you can take beautiful pictures even if you have never used a digital SLR camera before. The Nikon D3200 incorporates incredibly high 24.2 megapixels to delivers rich detail, meaning you can crop or print large images, keeping memories alive without a loss of sharpness.

Nikon’s latest image processor, the fast and powerful EXPEED 3 has been incorporated into the Nikon D3200. The image processor provides high-speed operation, producing remarkably clear images with excellent colour reproduction; and enhanced Full HD movie recording. ISO 100-6400 (extendable to 12800 equivalent) helps you take sharp images, even in low light. The Nikon D3200 features a razor-sharp 11-point autofocus system to make sure everything is in focus and to deliver sharp results even if your subject is off centre, or completely unpredictable, like your baby smiling or laughing.
24 megapixel Nikon D3200 SLR
By shooting action at four frames per second, the Nikon D3200 helps capture fast moving objects, like children playing on their skateboards, at exactly the right moment. Should you find yourself taking shots in high-contrast conditions, such as backlit scenes, Nikon’s Active D-Lighting automatically adjusts the lighting while retaining detail in both dark and bright areas for stunning images with natural contrast.
Nikon D3200 body
Its lightweight, small body makes the Nikon D3200 easy to pack and carry around so you never miss those important moments. When you come to use the camera, the controls have been intuitively laid out to ensure you have a secure grip that it is comfortable to handle. The most common functions, such as Live View and Release mode, have dedicated buttons. If you want to take a picture of yourself using the optional ML-3 remote control, the Nikon D3200 has a receiver which has been positioned on the front and back to make it easier to do so. The Info button is also close to hand, should you need any further help.
Nikon D3200 Guide Mode
Guide Mode, previously seen on the popular D3000 and D3100 digital SLRs, is now in its third generation with significant improvements on the Nikon D3200 to help you grasp the more creative options, taking you through the entire process step-by-step. Running in parallel, Assist Images uses visual examples to help you to identify the shot that you are imagining. Capturing that beautiful background blur in portraits or sharp pictures of your children playing has never been easier. New items have been added to the Advanced operation menu, for example, to help you to enhance the red in sunsets or reduce blur.
Nikon D3200 photo editing functions
The Nikon D3200 offers a variety of editing functions to help draw out your artistic flare. Adding creative effects such as Miniature, Selective Colour, Colour Sketch and Filter Effects - to add a warm or soft filter - will bring a personal touch to the finished image. The Nikon D3200 also lets you resize your images, give them a quick retouch, or even straighten them if necessary, directly on the camera to quickly and easily improve the quality of your photos. In addition, the large 7.5cm (3 inch) high-resolution (921k-dot) LCD monitor makes it a pleasure to review and edit your movies and photos.
Nikon Wireless Mobile Adapter
Wirelessly transmitting images from the Nikon D3200 to an Android smart device is now possible by using the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter. This means it is easy to share photos and videos with your friends and family instantly via social networks and e-mail or save and back them up when you are on the move. Because you don’t need a Wi-Fi connection to transfer images from the Nikon D3200 to your smart device, the WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter is an ideal accessory when you’re travelling. The Nikon WU-1a WiFi module also allows you to remotely preview the live view screen and trigger the shutter from your Android device, so you can be part of group photos. The Nikon WU-1a is compatible with Android smart devices.
