A significant upgrade from the Nikon D3100
Nikon have today announced the new Nikon D3200, a 24.2 megapixel DX-format CMOS HD-SLR. This tidy little camera can even be remotely used from a smartphone.
The DSLR has a feature set and price to appeal to many beginner or amateur photographers. Could this steal yet more sales away from a slightly troubled Canon? Especially so at a time when they really need to be selling more cameras and grabbing more market share.
Pros and Cons
Let's weigh things up...
After already announcing the Nikon D4 and D800 in their professional range, Nikon have got something for non-pros. The D3200 is an entry level DSLR specifically aimed at those photographers moving up from a compact camera.
The Nikon D3200 has almost twice the resolution of its predecessor, the D3100 plus a new, faster processor. It has a wider ISO range and some nice movie features such as the ability to add an external microphone.
There is no built in Wi-Fi but for £50, you can buy the WU-1a Wi-Fi module for the wireless transfer of images. So apart from the massive jump in sensor resolution, what else does the D3200 have to offer?
