Nikon announces new DX-format camera: Nikon D5200

NIKON-LOGO_125.jpgNikon Tokyo has announced the new DX-format Nikon D5200, featuring 24.1-million pixels, 39-point AF system and a 2,016-pixel RGB sensor.
While rated as an entry level camera, the D5200 features enhancements rivaling some of Nikon's top models.
According to Nikon's Press Release, the image processing engine is equivalent to the EXPEED 3 built into high-end Nikon D4, D800, D800E, and D600 digital SLR cameras for superior resolution, and image quality with very little noise at high sensitivities.

The new camera serves as a successor to the Nikon D5100 (released April 2011). It boosts the sensor resolution from 16.2 million pixels to 24.1, the burst shooting rate jumps from four frames per second to five, and the D5100 Multi-CAM 1000 11 point autofocus system is replaced with the 39-point Multi-CAM 4800DX.

Further enhancements include a stereo microphone input, metering improvements and support for Nikon's Wireless Mobile Adapter WU-1a and the new Wireless Remote Controller WR-R10/WR-T10 (both available separately).
