Box Of Mystery - D3200
It's here - the new Nikon D3200 twin kit. I'm looking at the box on the table in front of me and I'm dying of curiosity as to what it looks like inside. I shall continue to expire because the box is sealed and I'm not game to open it.
At least the Nikon people have been good enough to put a picture and some advertising copy on the outside. Apparently there is a camera body, charger, cables, and battery, and all sorts of software inside there. It sports two lenses - an 18-55 AFS DX f:3.5-5.6G VR and a 55-300 AFS DX f:4.5-5.6G ED VR. It would appear to be ready for nearly any sort of photographic capture.
The ISO is listed as 100-12800 and there is full 1080 HD video built in with continuous autofocus.It has a 24.2 megapixel APSC-sized sensor and will fire at 4 FPS. There are 11 points for the autofocus.
Once things are takne there are versatile retouching menus and in-camera movie editing. There is even an easy -to-use guide mode to help me if I have not worked with a DSLR before.
There is a notice that the Nikon people will warrant the entire package for 2 years instead of 1 - a measure of their confidence in their product. And there is a big yellow sticker on thetop sealing the whole thing in, so I am still outside here puzzling.
Tell you what. Come on down here to the shop and buy one and open it up so I can see what it looks like inside there.
