Inspire yourself with D-Movie: record finely detailed Full HD video clips you'll want to share. Take advantage of smooth recording (up to 60i) and a built-in stereo microphone.
Wireless Mobile Adapter WU-1a: share images directly from the D5200 to a smartphone or tablet that runs on Android or iOS*, or control the camera remotely via your device.
EXPEED 3: Nikon's fast and powerful image processing engine provides high-speed operation, remarkably clear images with excellent color reproduction, and enhanced movie recording.
High ISO (100-6400, extendable to 25600 equivalent): enjoy the freedom that great low-light performance brings. Capture detailed images in dark situations and clear shots of fast-moving subjects.
39-point AF system: with 39 focus points for superior accuracy. Advanced 3D subject tracking maintains focus on even the smallest subjects, however unpredictable their movements may be.
2,016-pixel RGB metering sensor: delivers precise metering for exact exposures and sends data to the Scene Recognition System, which optimizes auto exposure, autofocus, and auto white balance.
Effects mode: create distinctive photos and movies using a range of special effects, including Selective Color and Miniature. You can view your chosen effect in real time as you shoot.
5 fps continuous shooting: shoot action at a swift five frames-per-second and capture fleeting movements or expressions at exactly the right moment.
D-Movie AF modes: Live view autofocus works as you shoot movie clips. Keep subjects in sharp focus with full-time servo AF (AF-F). Relax and let the camera keep track of your subject with subject-tracking AF or face-priority AF.
HDR (High Dynamic Range): capture more detail when you shoot in high-contrast lighting conditions. Ideal for stationary subjects, the camera takes two shots at different exposures during a single shutter release, and then combines them into one stunning image with natural contrast.
Active D-Lighting: retain the details in both dark and bright areas when you shoot images in strong light, or in backlit situations. Ideal for photos of moving subjects.
16 scene modes: capture great shots just by selecting the mode that matches the subject or situation you're shooting. Scene modes optimize settings like shutter speed, ISO, and aperture, which is ideal if you want to quickly capture perfect shots or are new to D-SLR photography.
High-resolution LCD: see every detail of your photos and movies thanks to the high-resolution 7.5 cm (3.0-in.), 921k-dot vari-angle LCD monitor with wide-viewing angle and high contrast ratio. Compose shots or apply special effects with clarity whether you're shooting indoors or out.
Intelligent design: the small, lightweight body and superior ergonomics make this camera a pleasure to shoot with. A secure grip ensures a comfortable hold. Clear menus and one-touch buttons for frequently used functions like D-Movie and Live View make operation quick and intuitive.
Wireless remote control: Nikon's WR-R10 and WR-T10 wireless remote control devices are optional accessories that let you control key camera functions from a distance, even if there are obstacles between yourself and the camera. Ideal for shooting self-portraits, these devices can help prevent camera shake during shutter release.
NIKKOR lenses: take advantage of Nikon's legendary NIKKOR lenses and make the most of the camera's 24-megapixel resolution. Capture photos with vivid color and striking contrast. Shoot movies with crisp detail or experiment with cinematic effects.
* Compatible with iOS and Android smart devices. This feature requires use of a dedicated application that can be downloaded for free from Google Play™ and the Apple App Store.
