Need a new shooter? If you're looking for a mid-range DSLR, Nikon
's got a new one to consider. The company just launched the D5200, a cropped-frame DSLR that boasts a DX-format 24.1MP CMOS sensor, a 39-point AF system, and an image-processing engine equivalent to EXPEED 3 built into the D4 flagship camera. The D5200 offers the same side-hinged vari-angle monitor as the D5100 that enables flexible shooting from any angle, and it covers an ISO range from ISO 100 to 6400. The D-Movie function supports recording of full-HD 1920 x 1080 60i/50i movies, and it also supports the the Wireless Mobile Adapter WU-1a and the new Wireless Remote Controller WR-R10/WR-T10. When the WU-1a is connected to the camera, images can be transferred to a smart device, such as a smart phone or tablet, and the smart device can also be used to control camera shooting remotely.
In addition, the new WR-R10 (transceiver) and WR-T10 (transmitter) enable remote control over the camera from greater distances and broader angles than are possible with infrared remote controls for simple and convenient remote control even through obstacles. The WR-T10 can be used to control the camera to which the WR-R10 is connected. However, it can also control multiple cameras to which WR-R10s have been connected, enabling smooth remote control over a number of cameras. The D5200 is available in three colors (black, red, bronze), with pricing expected to be just north of $1000 for the body alone.
