Nikon D5200 24.1 Megapixel Black DSLR Camera With 18mm-55mm Lens, Model D5200KIT

An HD-SLR designed to awaken your creative passion. Find exciting new perspectives with an ultra-high resolution Vari-angle display that swivels to nearly any position. Capture your vision in lifelike brilliance with an exceptional 24.1 MP DX-format CMOS sensor, then share it instantly with the optional WU-1a Wireless Adapter. Unleash the artist within.


  • Transforming everyday sights into images that move us
    Shooting photos and videos is about more than capturing memories. A great camera brings your creative vision to life with striking clarity. The Nikon D5200 is exactly that type of camera—an exceptional HD-SLR designed to draw exciting new perspectives out of everyone who shoots it. Optimized for creativity, streamlined for flexibility, it'll awaken your passion and inspire some of the most spectacular photos and videos you've ever captured
  • Vari-angle display, built-in HDR, special effects and filters
    Creativity and flexibility were considered in every aspect of the D5200. It has a 921,000-dot Vari-angle display that lets you shoot from just about any position—hold the camera overhead for a view above a crowd, at ground level for an interesting close-up of a flower, or just enjoy easier video recording and self portraits. For shots that have both very dark and very bright areas, D5200 includes built-in HDR (high-dynamic range). It takes two shots at different exposures and blends them into one amazing image. And an exciting collection of built-in effects and filters opens new possibilities for expression: isolate a single color, explore black & white, posterize, miniaturize—the creative techniques pros spend years mastering are now conveniently at your command
  • 24.1 MP DX-format CMOS sensor and renowned NIKKOR lenses
    Perhaps your greatest inspiration will be the spectacular quality of every photo and video you shoot with the D5200. Its highly sensitive 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS image sensor captures your vision with lifelike brilliance—marvel at the vibrant colors and razor-sharp detail, even in low light. Legendary NIKKOR lenses, marvels of clarity and quality, are the perfect companion for the D5200, drawing peak performance out of the sensor. Our intelligent Scene Recognition System compares your shot against an onboard database for optimum exposure, and EXPEED 3, the processing power in our acclaimed D4, makes it all happen in an instant
  • Optional WU-1a Wireless Adapter for Wi-Fi photo sharing and camera control
    The thrill of creating a great photo is topped only by the excitement of sharing it. With the D5200, you'll have many great photos to share, so we made it easy. Just add the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter and instantly transfer your shots to a smartphone or tablet via Wi-Fi. Then share your favorites online as usual: email them, upload them to your favorite social networks or photo-sharing site like Nikon's my Picturetown. You can even use your smartphone or tablet as an external “live view” monitor to see what the camera sees and fire the shutter—perfect for getting into photos instead of always shooting them
    • Note: These functions require an Android or iOS device and Nikon's free Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility app, available on Google Play and the iTunes App Store
  • High-quality Full HD (1080p) video recording capabilities
    The D5200 includes Nikon's latest innovations for creating beautiful videos with virtually no choppiness. D-Movie mode now features Full HD 1080p 60i for visibly smoother sequences, a first for Nikon HD-SLRs. Full-time-servo AF (AF-F) and subject-tracking AF work together to keep moving subjects sharp and in focus, and face-priority AF instantly detects and tracks up to 35 faces in a scene. D5200 also has a built-in stereo microphone that can be controlled automatically or manually via 20 incremental steps, another first for Nikon HD-SLRs. Whether you shoot short clips or cinema-style movies, the D5200 makes it easy to take your projects to the next level
  • Ultra-fast, accurate shooting
    No matter where your subject is within the frame, the D5200’s 39-point wide-area autofocus system keeps it in focus so you can fire up to 5 fps. 3D Subject Tracking, powered by a 2,016-pixel RGB sensor, locks onto your subject and tracks it with exceptional accuracy. Improvements to the D5200's optical viewfinder make it easier to identify and capture fast-moving subjects, even when panning the camera
  • Included 18-55mm NIKKOR lens
    When asked why they choose Nikon gear, pros and serious shooters consistently mention NIKKOR lenses among their reasons. The D5200 comes equipped with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens—an excellent lightweight, multipurpose lens for nearly all shooting situations and an ideal match for the camera's DX-format sensor
  • Simple, intuitive operation
    You'll be at home with the D5200 in no time. Using visual representations of each setting to show you exactly what's changing with each adjustment, a redesigned display groups your most frequently adjusted camera settings for faster access
  • Long range remote control
    Whether you're shooting a group portrait (that includes you) or an intricate macro shot, a remote control is one of the most convenient accessories you can have. The new WR-R10 and WR-T10 Wireless Remote Controllers communicate using radio frequencies instead of Infrared, so you'll have control even when there's no direct line of sight between devices

Looking on the market for a new camera i began my research with a budget of a thousand dollars. I soon realized and decided on the d5100 only to my amaze to find that the d5200 just had a release date! I started looking into specs and reviews and found that the d5200 was by far the best quality in the price range. You get that nice nikon build and lenses and lovely interface that doesn't seems to crash. I looked at pentax and found that they are far too bulky and to be blunt UGLY! Pentax simply doesn't have one that that makes you scream for it. Next was sony which based off the specs was the best camera but you soon realize they don't have a wide range for lenses to choose from. Sony also is for the price range using new translucent technology which is great but just not there yet. And last but not least Canon my first choice when starting to looking into the thousand dollar range. I was 100% decided on the t4i Until i went and tried it on the store floor and found its insanely laggy and Crashed in my short time of using it(about a hour i used it taking pics of the store and people). The touch screen is also great but it really seemed to be best for video not photos which if i was buying for video i would buy a VIDEO CAMERA! I looked at the lower cameras from all companies and found none could compete with the nikons or the pentax. The pentax is great and the only thing is has over nikon is the weather resistant body but the you also need the lenses to go along with it which are very expensive. Also weather resistant by any company doesn't mean water resistant i found through my research most will get a rain cover regardless of the camera resistance. No, through all of my reviews and research the nikon has the best in this 800-1000$ price range by far! With all of this mess above you I leave you with what this camera doesn't have which would have been nice that it did. It lacks the weather resistance body which although nice isn't needed, Very few buttons which leaves you with less control over your photo's(Atleast less control unless you go all though the settings where more dials and buttons give you much faster and easier time do change things.). It lacks a pentaprism which is slightly better than the pentamirror, it misses the two SD card storage which is nice to have but not needed, it doesn't have a built in focus motor which is nice to have but unless you have old lenses or plan on buying older cheaper lenses you simply don't need a focus motor in the body. And last the biggest thing is lacks is the 100% viewfinder coverage basically meaning you don't see the full image of what you are shooting. the best in its price range you can still find better if you save just a little more the d7000 has all of what you lose with the d5200 and is almost the same price you simply have to realize that the d7000 is soon to be replaced and also is only 16MP which some people wont like and its alot heavier. I am loving this camera it does exactly what i want it to do and takes amazing quality photo's just realize if you are upgrading it may not be the best choice if you have the option to save a little more. Yet the best option above this class is still outstandingly nikon I hope this helps you decide and hopefully you can understand my mess of writing.

Picture quality and new features make this a good camera. I like the grid feature and that the controls are almost identical to the D5100 (which I also have). There is one flaw that makes this a product which I can't recommend. If you use back button focus, this is not the camera for you. Setting the AE-L/AF-L to control the auto focus (F2-Assign AE-L/AF-L button to AF-ON) and image review to Off, common settings for sports photography, you'll have problems with the auto focus when you review an image. The AE-L/AF-L button stops triggering the autofocus if you don't end image review with either the playback button or the Information button. Using the shutter button to end image review, as stated in the manual, will render the autofocus useless until you press the info button or start and stop playback with the playback button. I've been using Back button focus on Nikon DSLRs for years and never had an issue using the shutter button to end image review. I have 2 other Nikon DLSR's where this is not a problem, only the D5200 Nikon Support responded to support requests at first with "we're working to resolve the issue" then, nothing. I can't recommend this camera to anyone.

Really have enjoyed this camera

By D5200shooter

from San Francisco and Hawaii

I purchased my D5200 about a year ago, and I have really enjoyed this camera. It stuns me at how good the color and focus quality can be, makes me look good as an amateur photographer I use it for business use in as a realtor, interior and exterior homes shots, and also use it when I travel. I recommend this camera for a beginner to somewhat advanced photographer. For more advanced photographers you will likely want to look at full frame rather than crop frame. This is a great camera for a starter and hard to go wrong at the current price. If you see yourself wanting to expand with more lenses, and you still want to stay in the budget priced DX camera's the D7100 might be a better choice because you can use lens that don't need to have a focus motor, the body has one built in. I purchased a nikon 18-200 DX lens with the kit 18-55 lens, and also a 55-300 DX lens, all good lens, I thought that I would use the 18-200 as my standard lens, however, I added a 16-85DX lens and love that lens for the slightly wider angle for landscape and indoor shots, as well as a good portrait lens. I like the camera and recommend it as good starter camera for someone that is more serious than a point and shoot. I also use an my older D50 and a P510

This camera is great !

By jimali

from WA

I really like this camera ! After being frustrated for too long at being unable to get the photo I wanted with lesser cameras, I finally broke down and purchased a 'good' camera. This photo was taken with full auto, all I had to do was frame and zoom !

Great First DSLR!

By NikonSuave

from Undisclosed

This camera is very good. I know people have said the quality of photo is dependent on the glass, but the body offers many features that help you achieve maximum potential out of your glass. The 39 autofocus points are great, the 24MP sensor does a great job capturing detail and getting sharp images. Video quality is good (1080p at 30fps) and the audio quality is decent (I would recommend an external mic if you're serious about audio quality. Installing firmware updates has been easy, and Lightroom 4 and 5 both recognize the RAW files, which I would consider a "must-have" post-processing app. I am happy with my purchase, and even though the D5300 is out and I have heard good things about bumps in image quality (due to the removal of the AA-filter, and the other features such as Wifi and GPS, I think this camera is still great, and that if those features are important to you, then upgrade to the D5300; but if not, you will be satisfied with the image quality and interface of this DSLR.

Love it!

By Midoriku

from Yorktown, VA, USA

I bought this camera in November of 2013. This is my first DSLR camera. I had used a Nikon d90 back in 2011,and I fell in love with the brand. I use to use film when I was younger,and wanted to branch out to the digital era. The camera took a bit of getting use to, but it has been the best purchase I have ever made. Since then I have bought several lenses for it, and now own a small photography business. This is a great camera,and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for one.

"D5200 Built my Foundation as Professional Photographer Wanna be".

By DonAldo

from Abu Dhabi, UAE

Hi Everyone, I am one of the many happy and satisfied Nikon D5200 owner in the planet. This is my 1st DSLR camera since birth :). When I started using this, I feel like a professional photographer already. This camera has met all my expectations and delivers all the requirements as an entry level 'professional photographer wanna be'. Yes, I have a long way to go in photography, but just in case I wanna upgrade my DSLR I will still keep my D5200 with me, because this camera has “Built my Foundation�.

    Great Beginners/ Advanced Beginners Purchase

    By CaliGuy

    from San Diego, CA, USA

    When I purchased the D5200, I had never owned a DSLR or even a point and shoot, but I had done thorough research and figured out that this was the camera for me. This camera far exceeded my expectations: the 24 MP captures immense detail, the 1080p/60 fps recording is awesome (the fps is high enough to even get a little slow mo action going), the flip out screen is nice for those up high/ down low shots, and the list goes on. I was (and still am) very happy with my purchase, and my photography skills have gotten better as I have kept shooting. It might be time to step it up to the 7000 series and (eventually) to a full frame (D600?) .. Pros: 24 MP Flip out screen 1080p/60 fps video (with full shutter/aperture controls) 5 fps Color choices makes it more fun Perfect fit in the hand Easy interfaces/menus Nice button placements Nice Image Quality Cons: -BUFFER SIZE - only 6-7 RAW photos before the buffer gets filled.. This may not be a problem for everyone, but for people doing action/sports photography, this is kind of a drag -ISO noise - seems evident at even as low as 800 ISO -Live View kind of lags a little bit: takes a bit to switch to LV, a while to focus, etc.. but its LV so what can you expect.. -Flash button gets pushed alot accidentally while trying to change ISO, or just when changing grip -Can't change aperture size while in Live View In the end, the cons are just small things, and the pros greatly outweigh them. This is still an awesome camera

    Excellent Entry Level DSLR

    By Shubha

    from Undisclosed

    If you are looking for a decent entry level DSLR, this is it. Very good picture quality, compatible to wide variety of Nikkor lenses to suite your requirement. Camera has just the perfect grip and user friendly inter-phase and so high value for your money. It's better than D5300 and D7100 even, if you consider the specs and the difference in price.

    Love this Camera!

    By ChrisInCT

    from Connecticut, USA

    This is my first DSLR- I had a film camera and a bunch of point and shoots, but this is my first "serious" digital. Simply put, I love it! The settings are all easy to find and use, auto-focus is great (depending on your glass, of course). It's fast, and the size is just right for me. I bought this primarily for travel, and this is small enough I will actually use it, but big enough I don't feel like it's a toy. The one negative is the kit lens. The 18-55mm VR is garbage. The pictures are soft and the focusing with this lens is awful. Don't get it (unless you really want the red body, like I did)! Get yourself the body only and the 35mm f/1.8 DX lens. It's a great "carry-around" lens. I love it!
