All the specs but no details on price or availability :(

It's only been a few months since we talked about the last new D-SLR from Nikon. Back in September, Nikon unveiled a new D600 D-SLR camera, and today the company is back with the D5200. 

The D5200 has a 24.1-megapixel imaging sensor and is capable of shooting high-quality digital images and recording full HD resolution movies. The camera also uses the new Nikon EXPEED 3 image processor promising high-speed operation and rich color reproduction along with enhanced movie recording capabilities.


The camera supports an ISO range of 100-6400 that can be extended to 25,600. The D5200 has the same autofocus system (39-points and nine cross-type sensors), metering sensor, and scene recognition capabilities of the high-end Nikon D7000. The camera features a three-inch vari-angle LCD that can be swiveled for comfort no matter what position you're taking images in.

The D5200 also supports wireless connectivity with Apple or Android smartphones using an optional wireless mobile adapter, and it can geo-tag images when used with the optional GPS unit.


Marina Gurevich, Product Manager for Nikon Europe, says, “The inspiring Nikon D5200 is ideal for those who are passionate about photography and want to experiment with the camera’s superior features. The impressive image and movie quality alongside a versatile vari-angle LCD monitor lets users unlock their creative potential.”

Pricing and availability are unknown at this time.

But that hasn't borne out. The D1 had like a 2.5 megapixel sensor; according to the conventional wisdom that thing should just be a low-light monster. But it isn't.


Let me stop you right there. The D1 isn't a low-light monster because it doesn't incorporate all the advances made since its introduction. If you built a 2.5MP APS-C sensor with the technology of today, it would fare much, much better in low light.

Furthermore, noise is not just bad readings. It's also the effect of amplification needed when a smaller sensor doesn't get enough light - which is what invariably happens when you make increasingly smaller sensors. And don't get me started on how the blue channel shows noise even at ISO 200 :-D

EXACTLY. It's not just a matter of photosite size. The improvements in sensor production and the back-end processing is what explains why pixels have gotten smaller but noise has steadily improved.

I keep hearing that assertion, but until somebody actually does it, we have no idea. And it's probably going to be a while until someone tries it; the camera world has a lot of stagnation going on, and the big makers seem unwilling to push the envelope very much. All the design decisions seem to revolve around pushing more cameras on more people, which means niche desires - like your low-MP, high-ISO sensitivity sensor, or others that would love to see a natively monochrome sensor - don't get nearly the amount of love they need.
