It's All On Again, Kids - with Nikon 5200
Looks like the Nikon people are maintaining a firm commitment to the DX camera system. The recent introduction of the D800 series and the D600 camera might have taken the spotlight, but the new D5200 will re-focus attention on this format.
Hooray. I use the DX format for my work and I love it - and I realize that it is perfect for many, many users. I can see this camera forming the basis of a complete photographic outfit for travellers, families, small studio workers, and enthusiasts.
It is similar in size and shape to the D5100, but there are new features - stereo microphones for video recording, wireless connectivity to Apple and Android platforms ( with appropriate accessory ), LV real-time adjustment of art programs, big bright articulated screen, and not the least - different colours available. Note the LV lever is up on the top plate next to the mode dial now.
This camera has the new Expeed III processor, so you get a good low-light performance - 100-6400 ISO as native speed with a boost up from there.
This is not a heavyweight body - it will be a perfect travel camera combined with either a light twin-lens kit or a short zoom. Users can expect quality results and the interchangeabilty of the Nikon lens system for future expansion.
We'll blog more when we know the price and availability.
