The Nikon D3100 has finally got a successor as the camera maker has launched the new entry-level DSLR called the Nikon D3200. This may not be the only DSLR from the Japanese manufacturer as we expect more devices coming from the company in the near future. The Nikon D3200 has a bunch of new improvements, most notably, the Nikon D3200 features a 24 megapixel APS-C sensor, WiFi capability, 4fps continuous shooting and other advanced video modes.
The camera features the second highest megapixel count in Nikon DSLR camera, the first position is held by the recently launched Nikon D800 which sports a 36 megapixel sensor. This suggests that all the new DSLRs launching this year may come with a high megapixel count.
The ISO range on the Nikon D3200 goes up to 6400. This DSLR can record videos at 1080p progressive at 30 frames per second, while 720p progressive can be recorded at 60 frames per second. It also includes a mic input which is very common with almost all DSLR cameras.
Those interested can also purchase the newly introduced wireless mobile adapter WU-1a which allows users to connect to the camera using their smartphone. Users can then transfer files via ad-hoc without the need of a WiFi connection. It will also allow users to use their smartphone display as a viewfinder for the camera. Currently, it only works with Android devices and apparently an iOS version is in the making.
It will initially be available in Europe and USA with an official price of $699.95 which also includes a basic 18/55mm lens kit. It will start shipping sometime late May after which it may soon land in the Indian market.
