Nikon reveals 24.1-megapixel D5200 update to DSLR line
Tuesday, November 6, 2012 @ 5:58am

Nikon has revealed its soon to be released follow-up to the D5100 DSLR. The third in the series of cameras, the D5200 has only marginal physical changes externally, but the internals have been upgraded significantly. The biggest improvement is the inclusion of the 24.1-megapixel DC-format CMOS sensor combined with the new EXPEED 3 image processor.



The autofocus system, metering and scene recognition has received an overhaul, borrowing heavily from the D7000 series. A 39-point AF system with nine cross-type sensors replaces the 11 points of the D5100, and the 2,016-pixel RGB metering sensor uses almost five times the pixels of the previous model. The user interface has been modernized, a new stereo microphone on the flip-up flash replaces the single microphone on the side of the D5100, and support for the WU-1a wireless adapter has also been included. The rear vari-angle LCD monitor, the most welcomed improvement to the D5100 from the D5000, is kept exactly the same. The D5200 is expected to be out in December for around 700 ($1,100) for the body-only option. Packages including lenses have not been revealed as of yet.
