1-Nikon D3200 DESIGN Review
|Nikon D3200 Review - design|
We begin this Nikon D3200 review by discussing the design, so The outside design of the camera differ a little bit from Nikon d3100, special in size (d3200 smaller than d3100), and the most noticeable change is the handgrip that have a new acceptable size, also the shutter release button and the top of the grip are placed in more clear angle.
It body is made by a high-impact plastic that have a matte layer relative to it, also there is a rubber coating that cover the handgrip and the thumb.
1.1-How the D3200 Feel in the hand:the camera feel great, its work very well, the focus is quick, its shoot faster if you want to do multiple frame in second (i personally left it in single shoot mode, because i didn’t want to over shoot, i want to watch the thing and captor the right moment, not taking much pictures then choose the best one - just shoot it-)
so it feels good (i basically stay in manual), the button in the back are very amazing, and we can say that Nikon Do great upgrade in the body compare to the old one (Nikon D3100), also you have a live view button, so just press it and you go to live view mode, and there is the record button up top right next to the INFO button which is similar to what you have in Nikon expensive bodies.
1.2-D3200 Memory card placement:The memory card came in a separated card slot plus a door in the side of the body, so you can open it and close it without off or remove the battery like other DSLR bodies, its simple and beautiful and it's very convenient.
2-Nikon D3200 review Performance
|nikon D3200 review - performance|
The AF system does not come with any bad surprises, because its been used in most previous Nikon DSLRs cameras, so it's prove its cool performer, with a central cross-type AF point very sensitive to the vertical and horizontal details.The people that are interesting in shooting moving subjects, will be surprised and pleased to learn the 3D-tracking (option in Nikon D5200 class), so tracking your subject as it moves round the frame, and this option is not as advanced as the AF tracking on expensive DSLRs, but it is much more reliable than the systems found in CSCs.
