Nikon D5200 DSLR replaces its older sibling, the D5100

Nikon made an appearance at the Consumer Electronics Show 2013 in order to introduce the all-new Nikon D5200 DSLR. The camera uses a 24.1-megapixel sensor, an improved UI, new Special Effects and full HD video recording.

Replacing the D5100

Nikon D5200 is here to replace the D5100 after almost two years of existence. The new DSLR features a 24.1-megapixel DX CMOS sensor, which provides lively colors even in broad daylight. ISO range has been maintained between 100 to 6,400, with a boost of up to 25,600 in pitch-dark conditions.

The latest DSLR released by the Japan-based company is powered by the latest EXPEED 3 processor, which consumes less battery than its predecessor found in D5100. There are 39 autofocus points available alongside Intelligent Autofocus and Scene Recognition systems.

Photographers will have access to several autofocus systems, including single-point and dynamic autofocus.

New, but old

Nikon is using the same 3-inch 921K-dot swiveling and tilting LCD screen found in the D5100. Angle viewing stands at 170 degrees, which is very helpful when shooting videos from an awkward angle, albeit the swiveling LCD will also play a major role in this situation.

Inside, there is virtually the same user interface, though photographers can now enable Special Effects easier. Speaking of which, there are several Special Effects that shooters can take advantage of, like HDR mode, Color Sketch and Selective Color.

Nikon D5200 can shoot videos at 1080p resolution, 30p or even at 60p if users want to watch their videos on HDTVs . There is a dedicated video button alongside stereo-recording microphone and support for an external microphone such as Nikon ME-1.

The camera is compatible with about fifty FX and all DX Nikkor lenses, while the Speedlight System is also supported. It is also compatible with the WU-1a wireless mobile adapter that allows users to connect to Android and iPhone devices.

Optional wireless remote controllers

The company also introduced the WR-R10 and WR-T10 wireless controllers, which are part of a new trigger system, compatible with all Nikon DSLR cameras. The system works like conventional wireless remote controllers, the former being the transceiver and the latter being the transmitter.

What’s more, the WR-R10 can be connected to cameras using 10-pin connectors via a WR-A10 adapter. This combination will allow the photographers to trigger no less than 64 DSLR cameras at the same time.

Availability and prices in the US

Nikon has scheduled the D5200 DSLR for a late January release date for MSRP of $899.95 The package will also contain the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens. On the other hand, the WR-R10 price will stand at $126.96 and the WR-T10 price at $94.96, while a bundle will be available for $277.96, though the WR-A10 wireless remote adapter will also be included.
