The Nikon D5200 is a solid performer that delivers images with well-controlled noise and plenty of detail…

It’s also a nicely constructed camera, and the limited number of buttons and dials make it unintimidating to novice photographers, while enthusiasts will find that they have all the control that they want within easy reach.


The Nikon D5200 produces images of excellent quality with noise-free JPEG images at ISO 100-1600. More about image quality and performance of D5200 you can find on website.


The back of the Nikon D5200 is dominated by the large articulated LCD screen, with buttons scattered around it.
