Nikon D3200 Features

The Nikon D3200 features a sensor that can capture a LOT more than other comparable cameras at this level and price.

To make this point clear, consider the camera that the D3200 replaces: the Nikon D3100.

The D3100 had a 14.2 megapixel sensor. The sensor in the D3200 is almost double that, capturing a whopping 24.2 megapixels per shot.

While this will eat up space on your memory card faster, high-capacity memory cards are fairly cheap these days so that should not be an issue.

In addition to its substantial sensor, the Nikon D3200 also features an upgraded LCD screen, now with 920,000 dots of information (vs. 230,000 on the D3100). More dots means a clearer, more colorful picture.

If you like to share everything you shoot, then you'll like to know that the D3200 is compatible with Nikon's Wireless Mobile Adapter (WU-1a) which lets you share any image you take to a smartphone or tablet.

Fashionistas will appreciate that the D3200 body is also available in cherry red, helping you to stand out from all those other black DSLRs.
