Nikon releases 24-megapixel D5200 DSLR camera with 39-point auto focus

Nikon has announced the release of its new D5200 DSLR, a 24.1-megapixel compact-body camera. This entry-level shooter is available in three different colors - black, red, and bronze - and offers a host of higher-end features, including 39-point auto focus. You'll be able to nab the 5200 in December for a body-only price of €899.00.

The 5200 features a DX-format CMOS sensor and an EXPEED 3-equivalent image processing engine. ISO ranges from 100 to 6400, and can be expanded up to an impressive 25,600. There's a 39-point auto focus system to get clear shots, as well as a 2,016-pixel RGB sensor, perhaps the 5200's most high-end feature.

With the 5200, you can shoot videos in up to full HD 1920 x 1080 60i/50i. There's a mode called "Special Effects," which features some effects for recorded videos. In addition, you'll find a recording manual mode, allowing more advanced users to select the settings used when recording videos, such as shutter speed. The continuous shooting mode allows users to snap images at about 5fps and 3fps, depending on the shooting situation and preference.

Also announced are the Wireless Mobile Adapter WU-1a and the Wireless Remote Controller WR-R10/WR-T10 devices. The former allows users to share photographs and videos with "smart devices," as well as view the camera's display in real-time on a tablet or smartphone. As for the latter, the wireless remote control can be used to control the camera from distances and angles not typically supported by your ordinary IR remote.
