From the Manufacturer
Transforming everyday sights into images that move us.
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.
These rechargeable batteries provide extended life and consistent power, even in colder conditions.
Record crystal-clear sound and significantly reduce autofocus noise on your compatible DSLR camera using this compact stereo microphone. The ME-1 Stereo Microphone connects to compatible DSLR cameras that have a 3.5mm Mic jack and features new innovation that significantly reduces autofocus noise from being recorded.
Using the WU-1a optional wireless mobile adapter you can now automatically send great images to your smartphone and even use your smartphone to remotely capture images from your D5200. With an easy to use app, now when you can't wait to share that great shot you don't have to. Share it to your smartphone in a instant.

The big pull for me with Nikon was: you get more features for the same amount of money as the competing Canon line and the lenses are slightly less expensive. Lenses are everything. When purchasing a DSLR for the first time, people tend to get really picky about the camera and it's features. What they need to be looking at is what kind of lenses they'll want to purchase now and in the future. You can always upgrade the camera body. You're not going to want to throw away all the money you've invested in lenses, though.
As soon as I got my Nikon, I hit the ground running. My first test was at a wedding where I was the only photographer (yikes!). Although I used it mostly in automatic mode (I groan at mentioning this now), the photos turned out stunning. I've since learned how to use it in manual and take photos at all kinds of events and with many different subjects. The D5200 performs the best outdoors, in all types of lighting. It performs decently indoors, too. But, I would recommend getting a better flash if that is where you plan on using it the most.
Edit: I would also like to add the list of accessories I always get to complete a camera purchase. If you are new to DSLR photography this is function and protection for your investment:
1.A good multicoated UV filter. It saves your lens glass from accidental bumps, that bit of grit you miss and rub around when cleaning a random fingerprint and other crud. It also helps reduce haze. They should be on the lens from day one to protect that front element from an unforgiving environment (and the Baby's cake covered hands when you go in for the close-up first B-day!) I have twice been very thankful I took this advise myself. The lens survived, the filter did not. Was a cheap replacement (compared to a lost lens) and the photographic day was not ruined.
2. A good quality SD card. Or two. I like 32gb Sandisk Extreme 111. They are fast and I have not had one malfunction yet.
3.A spare battery. I have had good luck with fully decoded non-Nikon versions.
4. A case/bag for carrying and storage.
5. A screen saver for the LCD.
6. A proper lens cleaning kit.
There are a million other things you can use for your new hobby, but these 6 are really important to the health and well-being of your fine camera.
I was verrry slow to accept digital as a replacement for film - but I finally sold all of my film cameras about two years ago. At first, I tried a very good "point and shoot" digital (while I still had my 3 Nikons and their 7 lenses). But I have a deeply ingrained habit of holding a camera to my eye for composition and just twisting a lens barrel to adjust focal length. I tried a Canon - with eye level viewfinder; a very good camera but the viewfinder was not "wysiwyg" - just approximate. And, I don't care how good the rest of the camera may be, taking pictures of whales by "zooming" with a lever operated by my trigger finger just will NOT cut it.
For anything more serious than " snapshots", a DSLR is required (IMHO). My first, a Nikon D-80, was "OK" but not far enough along the way between "amateur" and "professional" - so I moved to the D5200 - keeping my VR 18-200 lens (and later adding a (70-300 - or something like that - which I picked up cheap).
There's NOTHING to not like about this camera - other than having to dip back in the manual to figure out features that I haven't used (at all or for a long time).
Unlike the CoolPix P510 I now use for "snapshots", the D5200 is ON as soon as I turn the lever and I can swing/zoom for a shot instantly - just what the doctor needs for capturing images of whales!! It will compensate for a wide variety of lighting situations and does an excellent job of managing light for dawn/evening pictures (for example). I even shoot the occasional "movie" and enjoy the results.
The only feature I don't care for is that this camera (with lenses and spare battery) starts out weighing only a couple of pounds at the start of a long day and ends up weighing as much as a small car by the end of the day! SIGH!
Top international reviews
The product is great and was delivered in time by Amazon and was packed very well. I recommend it to buy it with both len.
Important points befor buying:
The product comes with VR2 lens as it has not mention and it comes with 8gb memory card
The thing I dn't like is that the camera bag was very small it is difficult to keep camera with lens in bag. And there is no space for extra 2 lens.but the quality of bag is very nice
I am happy with this product and I recommend it to go for it.
What I like:
1) the flip LCD screen would make it easy to include yourself in the photo.
2) the high megapixel which would allow for easier cropping of unwanted/improper framed photos.
3) the dynamic range of 13+ which allows for better quality photos when shoot in RAW format.
4) the Live View.
5) the IR receiver at both front and back for use with the Nikon FFW002AA ML-L3 Remote Control
What I didn't like:
1) No dedicated ISO button. You can use the function button on the front just below the flash-up button. But still I'd wish the function button is placed somewhere else because most of the time I mistakenly press the flash-up button instead since they are very close to one another.
2) There is only a 10 sec timer option not 2sec. Sometimes you'll need to use 2seconds timer if you want steady shot but quickly.
What accessories I'd recommend:
1) The Nikon FFW002AA ML-L3 Remote Control
2) UV filter and Polarizer filter for shooting water scene or any bright reflective area.
3) Nikon AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6G Telephoto Zoom Lens for Nikon DSLR Camera if you want to shoot beautiful macro and distant object
4) Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G Prime Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Camera (Black) for portrait photography.
Overall a great product. Enjoyed shooting in RAW. And with this unbelievable low price what else would you need.
I will keep my verdict concise. First of all, Great experience with seller LIFESTYLES from Amazon. if you are confused between 700d, d3300 and d5200 ; go for d5200. Cause as a first dslr you won't get any better photographic options than d5200. i have gone through tons of reviews in the internet, for a stupid iso hype in d3300 don't choose over d5200. and of course don't call yourself amateur and end up buying a kit lens. buy a prime lens, trust me the outcome of it and lens itself will challenge you and make you a better photographer. After some time when your cam gets handy, buy a good zoom lens, that shall serve all your purposes.
D3300 vs D5200 : you are getting much better number of focus points as well swivel screen, better dynamic range, bracketing, hdr etc. - all these are bliss as photographic features. the greater ISO of the D3300 is not real because you are never going to use it at the imagined level. Expeed 3/4 -Not important at all.

The low-light and indoor performance is pretty awesome, this is the prime reason why I bought this camera where a mobile phone camera, in my opinion, can not perform.
Day-light, indoors, you can shoot with very high-shutter speed, as high as 1/125 to 1/1000 second, that means, you get the pictures if the subject movies a bit (kids playing games etc.). I was very happy the outcome.
During diwali, I struggled to capture the crackers (rockets). It was all trial and error and learn from mistakes. However, this is not due to the camera, but due to my little experience with occasion, photography and the complexity involved in the combination of manual settings shutter-speed, ISO, aperture, manual-focus and ever-moving, short-lived subjects.
I bought Nikon 50mm, f/18 prime less with out motor, knowingly that the AF doesn't work with D5200. I was able to shoot good pictures when the subjects don't move, but it's kind of difficult to take picture of moving subjects, such as playing kids, birds etc..
Later-on I bought Nikon 35mm, f/1.8 prime lens and the results were awesome, especially the portraits and the low-light pictures - such as pictures taken at candle light dinner. After I bought this my 50mm prime lens became useless. I use the default 18mm-55mm only to shoot group photos (as wide-angle-lens) or where I have limited control on the distance between the camera and the subject.
I did not by a telescopic (200mm/300mm) lens as I know I would hardly use those lens, since I don't generally shoot birds and far objects.
Overall, never repented on buying this camera. If you have plans to switch to professional photography in future, you might want to by D7000 series, as this camera has a built-in motor, so you will have wide-selection of lenses without auto-focus limitation.
I saw excellent pictures posted by other reviewers, so I will skip the photo-session :P
Thanks for reading my review.
