Newly developed Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor with 24.1 effective megapixels [NEW]
The high pixel count of 24.1 effective megapixels delivers high-definition images with fine details of the subject enabling expression with sharpness and depth. The image maintains high resolution even if it is trimmed and printed in large size after shooting.
High-density 39-point AF system features superior subject-tracking and subject-identification performance in combination with Scene Recognition System
The D5200 employs a Multi-CAM 4800DX autofocus sensor module. 39 focus points track even a fast-moving subject precisely. Furthermore, performance of auto-area AF and 3D-tracking is improved in combination with the Scene Recognition System that utilizes a 2016-pixel RGB sensor.
A choice of three body colors and a vari-angle LCD monitor that offers flexible shooting
The D5200 is available in black, red or bronze body colors. And it incorporates a vari-angle LCD monitor that enables you to set the angle you want. Compared with viewfinder shooting, you can shoot in a variety of angles from high or low with a stable posture. This expands flexibility of composition and further enhances your creativity.
Special Effects that enable you to enjoy various creative expressions in still images and movies by setting prior to shoot.

Variety of image-editing functions that allow you to retouch images easily after shooting, such as NEF (RAW) processing, Trim and Fisheye.
The D5200 employs newly developed Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor with 24.1 effective megapixels. Combined with the sharp depiction of NIKKOR lenses, the high resolution renders details of the subject minutely and delivers images with great definition and depth. The sensor also supports wide ISO sensitivity range, high-speed readout during live view and Full HD movie recording.
Renders even delicate detail in skin tone, eyelashes and hair — high-performance image-processing engine EXPEED 3 that maintains superior gradation
The D5200 comes equipped with image-processing engine EXPEED 3, equivalent to that of higher-end models such as the D4. It processes multiple tasks in parallel at high speed while maintaining high precision to bring out the full potential of the 24.1 megapixels for both still images and movies. The image processing of the EXPEED 3 is excellent at color reproduction, gradation processing and image quality at high sensitivity. It reproduces human skin tone, eyelashes and hair more faithfully. Furthermore, from image processing and card recording to image playback and image transfer, EXPEED 3 manages massive amounts of data at high speed. Even with high ISO noise reduction and Active D-Lighting, continuous shooting speed is not sacrificed, realizing comfortable shooting. This also contributes to energy saving.
High image quality of the D5200 realized by the high pixel count of 24.1 effective megapixels, image-processing engine EXPEED 3 and NIKKOR lenses
Effective for shooting in low-lit situations such as interiors or night scenes and for moving subjects — ISO sensitivity range up to 6400
The D5200's wide ISO sensitivity range is from ISO 100 to 6400, expandable to Hi 1 (ISO 12800 equivalent) and Hi 2 (ISO 25600 equivalent). The camera reduces noise effectively even at high ISO sensitivity setting while maintaining definition as much as possible to deliver sharp images. Setting high ISO sensitivity enables you to shoot at faster shutter speeds and capture pictures without worrying about image degradation caused by camera shake even in low-light situations or when shooting a moving subject. This superior high-sensitivity performance is also effective for D-Movie and you can record beautiful movies without large-scale lighting equipment even when light is scarce.

Shot at ISO 1600
Wide ISO sensitivity range from ISO 100 to 6400 at normal setting
Reproduces brightness in highlights and shadowy areas as you see them — Active D-Lighting with improved image quality
Active D-Lighting is effective for shooting, for example, a dark room including outside scenery seen through a window, high-contrast scenes such as at the seaside under strong sunlight, and backlit situations. It preserves details in both highlights and shadowy areas in such situations, maintaining moderate contrast to reproduce brightness as you see it. Select the preferred setting from "auto", "extra high", "high", "normal", "low" or "off". The D5200 employs a new image-processing system that causes less shift of color even when the strength level is increased. Image-processing time is shortened by highly accurate and high-speed real-time processing. And color reproduction is further enhanced with new image-processing engine EXPEED 3. Unlike HDR (High Dynamic Range), Active D-Lighting does not require the process of combining images, therefore it is effective for shooting moving subjects such as people.
Delivers beautiful images even in high-contrast scenes — HDR (High Dynamic Range)
Two images taken with one shutter release at varying exposure are combined to produce a single image that has a wider dynamic range (range of contrast to reproduce tonal gradation) with less loss of detail in highlights and shadows. The result is images with less noise and rich tonal gradation throughout the entire frame including shadows and highlights even in high-contrast shooting scenes. HDR mode is selectable from "auto", "extra high", "high", "normal", "low" and "off". The exposure differential of the two images up to 3 EV and the smoothness of the edge where the two exposures meet are automatically set according to the strength level. Effective for stationary subjects such as landscapes or still lifes.
Note: It is recommended to use a tripod.
To draw out the full potential of the D5200's approx. 24 megapixels and render high-definition images, using a high optical performance lens with superior resolution is of vital importance. NIKKOR lenses are Nikon digital SLR cameras' genuine interchangeable lenses and are highly praised by many photo enthusiasts and professional photographers. Employing an array of Nikon's original advanced technologies, NIKKOR lenses feature high optical performance and superior rendering performance, and support high image quality by getting the most out of the D5200's high pixel count in both still images and movies through the wide and diverse lineup.
Nikon's original technologies
-Nikon's original Vibration Reduction function (VR) that realizes an easy-to-see viewfinder image, comfortable shooting and images with reduced blur for both stills and movies
Image blur caused by camera shake tends to occur when shooting in low-lit situations, telephoto shooting and close-up shooting. Nikon built the Vibration Reduction function (VR) into the lens to reduce the effects of camera shake. Different from a blur-reduction function built into the camera body, this ensures a stable viewfinder image during shooting for precise focusing and comfortable confirmation of composition. The VR function, optimized for the characteristics of each lens, is effective for not only still image shooting but also movie recording using live view.
-AF-S lenses with built-in SWM (Silent Wave Motor) ensure quiet autofocus operation
Nikon's originally developed SWM (Silent Wave Motor = ultrasonic motor) for AF drive is an autofocus motor that converts "traveling waves" into rotational energy to drive optics for autofocus. AF-S lenses that incorporate the SWM achieve quiet AF operation.
-Nano Crystal Coat provides clear images with minimal ghost or flare
This is an antireflective coating that originated from Nikon's work in semiconductor manufacturing technology. Ghost effects caused by red light, which were incredibly difficult to prevent with conventional coating, and ghost and flare effects caused by light entering the lens diagonally are effectively reduced to provide clear images.
-ED glass effectively minimizes chromatic aberration at high magnification
Nikon-developed ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass minimizes prism-caused color dispersion. For lenses using normal optical glass, the longer the focal length, the more difficult it is to correct the chromatic aberration that causes color fringing. Nikon's ED glass effectively compensates for this kind of chromatic aberration.
-Aspherical lens for effective distortion correction
This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces to correct certain types of lens aberration. These elements are particularly useful for correcting the distortion in wide-angle lenses.
