Nikon D3200 DSLR Camera Price in Singapore, Features, and Other Info

Nikon D3200 DSLR Camera Price in Singapore, Features, and Other Info: The Nikon D3200 is an entry-level DSLR camera that is meant as a replacement model for the Nikon D3100, the company’s almost two-year old entry-level digital SLR camera. Compared to the D3100, the Nikon D3200 has a lot of similar components, including the same autofocus system and viewfinder, as well as the Guide Mode feature that walks in newbies through the basics of DSLR shooting. However, some of the very much noticeable improvements include a newer and higher resolution sensor as well as an updated Nikon Expeed 3 imaging engine. There is also a higher-resolution 3-inch LCD for viewing pictures and browsing through menus, and a 1080/30p video recording capability with a supporting microphone jack and HDMI connector.

Aesthetically, the Nikon D3200 in itself is a nice and handy camera. It is super light-weight at only 505 grams (including the battery and SD card). It is in fact as light the Nikon D3100. The camera comes in two colors: black and red. There is not much button layout deviation from the D3100 expect that the dedicated movie record button has been moved to the top plate, and the live view has been converted into a button from the lever format found in the D3100.


As mentioned, the Nikon 3200 has been imbued with quite a high-resolution sensor, higher than any DX DSLR so far, at 24 MP and a density of 255 pixels per millimeter. In contrast, the Nikon D800 stands at a whooping 36 MP but it only contains 200 pixels per millimeter in its larger FX format. This is good actually but considering that not many people, much less entry –level photographers, would find the need to use such high res, 6 to 10 MP is enough for any day-to-day photography. Besides, using that much resolution in one image will take up a lot of memory card space, so usually people do tend to trim resolution down.

Arguably, the 24 MP D3200 will produce 6 MP images that are sharper and clearer than those DSLR that have much lower maximum resolution because of the extra pixels. In addition, because of the diffraction limit at f/6.3 set by the pixel density of the D3200’s sensor, shots made at f/6.3 or smaller will be limited by the lens diffraction itself, not by the camera.

The Nikon D3200 has a movie mode that is decent but doesn’t really stand out. Worse though is the fact that while at video shooting mode, the DLSR could not autofocus fast enough, and when it does, there are much noise from the lens that would go into the audio of the clip. The microphone itself is still in mono format.

What would probably sell the Nikon D3200 more is the fact that it is small and very light so that one could bring such a professional looking camera just about anywhere. Furthermore, as much as the 24 MP resolution might make for good quality pictures, in the case of the D3200, the secret lies more on Nikon’s Picture controls and automatic adaptive dynamic range controls. The latter can be used to get fantastic highlights, shadows, tones and colors, all of which make for breathtaking landscape and people shots.

Overall, the Nikon 3200 just about got all the basic ingredients in for an entry-level DLSR. While still lacking in movie shooting capabilities, it does however manage to produce great picture quality. It has several versatile adjustments but still retains the ease of use of that of its predecessor. What’s more, the D3200 is small and light, unlike other higher end DSLR that weighs a ton on the neck.
