The line between entry-level DSLRs and amateur cameras is a little more blurred today with Nikon’s announcement of the D5200.
This “upper entry-level” DSLR boasts a 24.1 megapixel CMOS sensor. The D5200 adopts some of the more popular features from previous, higher-level Nikon DSLRs, like the Multi-Cam 4800DX AF sensor in the D700. Additionally, it has the same EXPEED 3 image processing engine and the 2,016-pixel RGB Scene Recognition system as the D4/D800/D600.
The camera also boasts impressive video performance with 1080i movie capability at frame rates of 60, 24, 25, and 30. As seen with the newer cameras, the D5200 offers WiFi connectivity through an optional WU-1a module.
Although pricing and availability is yet to be confirmed, it is expected that the D5200 will retail for around $1100.
