I’ve wanted a DSLR for about 8 years now and never quite bit the bullet on making the investment. A year before I bought this camera, I researched all my options (to death). I compared specs, reviews, prices, and tested each camera out at the store… twice. My uncle is a professional photographer. And by professional, I mean the big leagues. He swears by Nikon. I’ve always been a Canon girl, personally. My first “real” camera was a Rebel SLR.

Purchased as refurbished. Basically looks and functions as new. 1515 shutter clicks, barely used. The price difference from new makes this a huge bargain camera for the budget minded. I purchased this as a back up body. With limited use at this point, this is a wonderful camera. It has the major advantage of being very light weight and big enough to get a hand on it. If you are hauling around a DSLR all day this is an important consideration. Especially if you carry an extra lens or two. Really gets important if you are caring an additional body to eliminate lens changes in dirty environments or fast moving situations. I chose this body over it’s newer D5300 version because I have no need of GPS capabilities. If I need Wi Fi I can get that with an adaptor or a Wi Fi card. Both items cost far less than stepping up to the next model. Any other updates are not significant between the models (for my uses). The one thing I really find I use, and missed more than I would ever have guessed, is the articulated screen. High shots, low shots, shots using a smaller/lower/lightweight tripod, this adjustable screen is so incredibly convenient. Saves the back, keeps me out of the dirt for the most part, and helps visibility in bright lighting conditions. I really missed this when I upgraded to the D7100 from the D5100. The technical points of this camera are covered in multiple other reviews, so I will just say I am not disappointed in the images it captures, even when comparing to the D7100. I really wish the D5200 could use the older lenses, the ones that need the screw type AF system within the camera body (the D7100 can). This body uses only the AF-S lenses to auto focus. The older lenses will mount on this camera, but they will NOT autofocus. Nikon continues to develop nice AF-S lenses that work with this type camera, so this could be the only camera you will ever need.

Great intro to the DSLR camera world!

I am very pleased with this camera! This is my first DSLR and I literally agonized (as much as someone can over buying something) over the decision. I don’t know enough about photography and advanced cameras which made it all the more difficult. Many of the reviews were super technical and I didn’t know what most of the terms meant. All I wanted to know was:

Another camera that’s occasionally smarter than I am – but I wouldn’t give it up.

I’ve had a camera in my hands since I was in the 5th grade. My first one was a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye – a 620 roll film camera – which gives you an idea of how many cameras have passed through my hands.

Finally, A Worthwhile Upgrade to the Nikon D3100 and D5100

Nikon has made some awfully good “Entry Level” Digital SLR cameras over the years. The most recent were the D3100 and The D5100. The main differences between the D3100 & D5100 was the D5100’s articulating/brighter LCD and a bracketing feature. The D5100 is about 10% heavier and costs a bit more than the D3100. The D3200, the sucessor to the D3100, was released last year. However the D3200 was arguably a step backward introducing a much higher resolution sensor (24MP) but at the undesirable cost of additional noise at higher ISO settings.

Amazing technology at the right price

Truth be told, I was looking to upgrade my Nikon D50 to an FX (full 35mm size image sensor) format camera when I began shopping for a new camera body. The price of those professional workhorses was unfortunately beyond my reach. I found this gem when I set my sights a little lower and I am very pleased with the outcome.

Very happy with the service and the product

Free shipping was faster than expected. Camera arrived with packaging intact, no damage. I like that they had tested the camera before sending it, there was one photo on the memory card of the shipping room I guess (32GB no less – a list of what is in the package did not indicate an SD card was included). Happy with the price, service and camera. I bought this body to replace my decade old D40 that developed a memory card port problem. The quick fixes on YouTube and elsewhere didn’t work and it would cost as much to repair it as replace it. All my lenses and most accessories work, only the old batteries are not compatible. This is an “international” model meaning the warranty is from the seller. My D40 is a US model originally covered by Nikon USA. I compared the D40 and new D5200 and could not find a single thing that would indicate any differences between the two.

Very good, and with the fixed shortcoming, now a 5 star.

I imagine most are coming to this camera as either an upgrade to a point and shoot, or as a next step from a lesser Dslr.

Solid performance, good value, Nikon nails it again!

This camera may be the best APS-C in its class so far. After Nikon’s quality control issue with the full-frame D600 (sensor oil spot problem), Nikon may be able to win back its trust with this new release, again aimed at enthusiasts and amateur photographers. Being an amateur photographer for years and have invested quite a sum in Sony, Canon and Nikon bodies and lenses, I myself settled with Nikon in personal preference. I would say all three brands got its personality (good and bad), especially with Sony pushing the translucent mirror technology.

In a few words, the D5200 has the best camera sensor you can buy with around 500 box

Good camera for the price, maybe the best. But it has a few problems, i would called them “details”: im talking about an horizontal noise pattern at high ISO when using a flat picture style, even in video. In Standard you can shoot at ISO 3200 and above and everything is pretty usable (at least in non-professional purposes), but, while you are using a custom flat profile, with the contrast, sharpening and saturation all the way down, you may note the horizontal lines in the dark areas. This also happens with the Neutral profile, but just a little less. You cannot change the aperture in live view, but if you dont have any problem with that, go ahead. Other thing you should consider is that you cant really exploit this beautiful 24mp sensor without a really good lens. No way: with a lens of less than a thousand box you cannot take advantage of this gorgeous sensor. The lens that comes with body sucks, buy a 50mm f1.8 prime.
