  The first two pictures below were shot outside at night, at two sides of the same apartment building.. Two different nights, actually.  One was a clear night, and you can see stars in the sky.  The other was a cloudy night,and you can see the clouds in the sky.  Both were shot using the stock 18-55mm lens that came with the camera. Both were with the lens zoomed out to 18mm, and with the aperture at ƒ3.5, with the sensor operating at an ISO speed of 6400.  One was a ½-second exposure, and the other was ¼ of a second.  Both handheld—a testament either to my steady hands, or to the awesomeness of the VR feature, or some combination of both.

  I'd say that this is probably plenty of low-light performance for your application; as long as your subjects aren't moving around too much.  Of course, you can always improve upon this by investing in a faster lens.

  For the picture of my cat, taken in a badly-lit corner of my apartment, I mounted the old 50mm ƒ1.4 lens that was stock with my early 1970s-vintage Nikon F2.  This shot was taken at 1/30 of a second at ƒ1.4, with the sensor operating at ISO 6400.

Check ISO level (study ISO) when you trying to shoot in low light. And a tripod is also recommended with motion detection off.

answer 1
  DPI really isn't as meaningful to a camera as it is to other imaging devices, such as scanners or printers.  The D3200 takes pictures that are 6016×4000 pixels in size.  The EXIF information stored in these pictures identifies them as having a resolution of 300 DPI, but this doesn't usually have anything to do with the actual scale at which the original subject is rendered in this image.  If you were to print this picture at 300 DPI, it would make a picture that is 20 inches by 13⅓ inches—quite a bit bigger than most printers will work with.

  In printing a full-sized image from a D3200 on any normal printer, 600 DPI would be a more reasonable resolution at which to print it; this would make an image that is 10 inches by 6⅔ inches, which will fit nicely on a standard letter-sized piece of paper.

  I just now performed a crude experiment, to see about what distance range will produce a 300 DPI rendering of the actual subject using the stock 18-55 mm lens.  I did this by standing one yardstick on end, moving and focusing the camera at each end of the zoom range until the long direction of the finder covered 20 inches on that yardstick, and then using another yardstick to measure the distance from the front of the lens to the first yardstick.  With the lens zoomed in to 55 mm, the second yardstick was too short, by about a foot, so I estimate the distance at approximately four feet, or 48 inches.  With the lens zoomed out to 18 mm, I measured the distance at about sixteen inches.

  These were very rough measurements, of course.  If I really cared about rendering a particular scene at a specific DPI resolution, I would make much more precise measurements; or perhaps just include a ruler in the scene so that I could make calculations and adjustments to the photograph after the fact to bring it to the desired resolution.

Question

My new D3200 takes slightly blurry pictures. Why?

I recently bought a new D3200. Shooting right out of the box on auto mode and auto focus is producing slightly blurry images. I am holding the camera still and the object being photographed is stationary. The lighting is good as well. If I sharpen the images they look ok, but I shouldn't have to be editing every image for sharpness. I'm thinking about returning the camera. Can anyone help?

First of all, try cleaning the lens. Second, try using a tripod and even better a tripod with a remote shutter release so you aren't touching the camera at all eliminating the chance of camera shake. And if holding the camera, don't just push the shutter release all the way. Press it half way and let the camera do its job focusing. And if you are using a VR lens make sure it is turned on (I have made that mistake myself.). These are just some basic things to check so always refer to your manual and Nikon has some very helpful videos on the website.

answer 2
  Between my forty+ year old Nikon F2 (no autofocus, no automatic exposure; everything totally manual), and my new D3200, I've only used a collection of much lesser digital cameras and camera phones, so I am pretty new to digital cameras of this sophistication.  Like you, I've got some new things to learn about the use of a modern DSLR.

  On my F2, of course, I know what my subject is, I know where I am focusing,and I know when I have properly focused on the subject.  The D3200 tries to do all the thinking for you, and sometimes, it doesn't get it right.  It does, however, give you some useful clues as to what it is doing.  Look through the viewfinder, and you'll notice a diamond-shaped pattern of black dots.  When you push the shutter release button halfway, some of those dots will briefly light up red; that tells you where the camera thinks your subject is; that tells you where the camera is going to try to focus.  If it's right, go ahead and press the button the rest of the way to take the picture.  If it's wrong, release the button and try again.  Sometimes, it takes a few tries to get the camera to identify the correct subject.

Question

HELP I'm New to DSLR

I'm looking to upgrade from a Coolpix L810. I do alot of outdoor photos, animals in action. I am not a pro. What camera would you recommend? I've seriously compared the D3200 & D5200 and am not sure if the almost $500 price difference is worth it for my needs or level of use. If anyone can give me their thoughts on either (pros & cons) I'd appreciate it. I don't want to regret an expensive purchase like this. Thank You!

Biggest difference for action shots, the D5200 shoots at 5fps compared to D3200 4fps.
You will then have to consider getting a zoom lens, that is where the expensive part comes in.

The D3200 has a guide mode feature to assist beginners with learning the basics of using the DSLR where as a D5200 has more features such as a custom settings menu. There are 24.2 megapixels in the D3200 and in the D5200 there is 24.1 megapixels. For further comparison, there is a comparison tool that will give further details.

  Yes, the D3200 can take pictures in the rain, until it gets too wet.

  And if you keep it out in the rain long enough, there's no limit to how wet it can get, but it won't get very wet before it stops working.

  This is a function of the lens, not the camera.  This camera comes with an 18mm to 55mm zoom lens, which gives a decent moderate range.  You can buy other lenses that will fit this camera as well.

  Please note that in comparing the angle of a view that a given lens will produce on this camera to what a comparable lens would produce on an old-fashioned 35mm film camera, you need to multiply the focal length by a factor of 1.55 to adjust for the fact that this camera's sensor is smaller than a standard 35mm frame.  For example, the included 18-55mm zoom lens is equivalent to a {18,55} 1.55 × approximately 28mm to 85¼ zoom on a 35mm camera—that's a moderate wide-angle to a moderate telephoto range.  There are, of course, many other lenses that you can buy to use on this camera, covering a much wider range.

  As for comparing it to your cell phone camera, you really cannot in any useful manner.  That'd be rather like trying to compare a Ford Mustang GT to a child's tricycle.

  Your cell phone probably doesn't have any true optical zoom at all, but uses a “digital zoom” which simply means using a smaller portion of the sensor to simulate a longer lens.  At a digital zoom factor of 4:1, your cell phone is using a portion of the sensor that is only ¼ the full size in each direction, effectively using only 1/16 of the total area of the sensor, and reducing the effective resolution and quality of the picture by that amount.  You can get the same result by simply taking a picture at the 1:1 zoom setting, and later cropping the picture down to the portion that you want.

  The standard 18-55mm lens that comes with the D3200 gives you a true optical zoom ratio of 3:1.  That's less than the 4:1 that your phone purports to offer, but this is a true optical zoom, and however you have the lens set, you're using the full size and full resolution of your camera's sensor.  The resolution and quality of the image will be the same with the lens zoomed in to 55mm as with it zoomed out to 18mm.

  And, as with your cell phone, you can always crop the picture down later, to get an effective angle of view that you'd otherwise need a longer lens to get.  And starting from 24 megapixels of resolution, you've got a lot of room to crop in, and still have a result with better resolution and quality than you could ever hope to get from your cell phone.

The zooming of a lens is not the feature of the camera but a feature of the lens. Depending on which lens that is being used depends on how far the zooming may be.

  To control the shutter speed, set the mode dial to “M” or “S”.  The wheel on the back of the camera will then set the shutter speed anywhere from 30 seconds to 1/4000 of a second.  Please note that in “M” mode, it will be entirely up to you, also, to set the aperture and ISO, as necessary, for the lighting.  In “S” mode, the camera will set the aperture, as necessary.

Is the D3200 a good camera for me.

I am looking for my first SLR digital camera after using a fully manual one for years. (a pentax K1000 - which I just loved) Then a pocket digital. But, I want to go back to having more control, so looking for aperture, shutter speed control, but still a very simple camera. I don't want all the bells and whistles. This looks good to me.....would like more input and advice.

I like the controls I have in my D3200, I like to take action and sports pictures including car racing. Now I am back taking pictures as a hobby. After using some point and shoot cameras I decided to buy a DSLR in order to have control over speed, apperture, zoom, ISO etc. Because I wanted to take better action pictures at night I bought my 3rd Nikkor lens.
Because of the quality of pictures taken with the D3200, my friends are asking me to use my camera in few celebrations in my church community.
I am not a professional but I understand the D3200 is a good camera for advanced users or starting professionals.
When you start feeling the limits of the equipment then will be up to you to invest more or not in equipment.
D3200 does not have built-in HDR, real time effects, and you need an adapter for wifi connection.

I recently got the D3200 and sometimes my camera will freeze up when I'm taking a picture or viewing pictures and the yellow light (the one that connects to the SD card) will flash. It will usually freeze up for 30-45 secs. Is this happening to anyone else?

Which SD card are you using and what class is it. Sounds like you have a memory card problem.

When using a DSLR like your new D3200, it is the lens that you use that will determine how close-up or far-away items appear to be. Telephoto lenses allow the photographer to produce close crops on distant subjects, while Macro lenses allow the photographer to focus very close on small objects such as flowers or insects.

Please check out these articles on our site for more information on choosing lenses for your DSLR:

Remove the camera body cap and remove the rear lens cap. Align the mounting Marks that are located on the side of the lens and camera's mounts. Rotate the lens until it clicks into place.

The new NIKON D3200 was announced last week and it’s usually available after 30 to 45 days after this. You may want to check with your local dealer or keep visiting our Nikon store.

The D3200 doesn't have the in-camera HDR mode. You may want to check the D5100.

Question

Which memory card to buy for this camera?

I plan on using the HD video capabilities on this camera, but I'm having a really difficult time searching through many websites looking for "just the right memory card"...

"The following SD memory cards have been tested and approved for use in the
D3200. Cards with class 6 or faster write speeds are recommended for movie
recording. Recording may end unexpectedly when cards with slower write
speeds are used."

Sandisk, Lexar, Panasonic and Toshiba cards have been tested with the camera, but I'd like to think that Sandisk would be the best choice here, but I would like to hear from the experienced photographers out there. What has worked for you? and what is the difference between SDXC and SDHC? Is one better than the other? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

If you are going to shoot alot of video get the San Disk Extreme Pro SDXC UHS1, (make sure you buy a compatible card reader). Video eats up space on the memory cards so get the biggest you can afford.
