After releasing the D3200, Nikon has now introduced the D5200, which will succeed Nikon’s D5100 mid-range DSLR. Many expected Nikon to release a successor to the D7000, but it turns out that Nikon has taken a number of features from the D7000 and created an affordable package that we now know as the D5200.

Apart from being cheaper and lighter than the D7000, it has the same 39-point autofocus system, including nine cross type sensors in the middle and also a 2,016 RGB metering sensor in the middle. That said, it retains the 3-inch LCD of the D5100 with a 920k-dot resolution. Also Read - Happy Friendship Day 2021: 5 cool tech gifts under Rs 500
Perhaps the biggest upgrade comes in the form of the new 24.1-megapixel CMOS sensor. It has an ISO range between 100 and 6400 and an extensible range to ISO 25600, which is the same as the D3200. Like all the newer cameras in Nikon’s portfolio the D5200 has the new Expeed 3 processing engine that’s allows 5 FPS on burst mode and 60 FPS while shooting video in 1080i.

Additionally, it has a stereo microphone and external microphone input as well. It will also be compatible wireless mobile adaptor and remote controller accessories. Both were introduced with the D3200 and allow users to control the camera via a companion iOS and Android app or transfer images wirelessly.
Nikon is not discontinuing the D5100 and it plans to slot the D5200 right between the D5100 and the D90. Nikon will sell the D5200 with a standard 18-55mm stock lens kit for Rs 46,950 and it will be available in December.
