With its easy-to-use, consumer-friendly design and relatively affordable price, the Nikon D5200 may technically be geared for beginners, but it also carries a considerable amount of photographic power within its compact, ergonomic body. The DSLR's sophisticated 24.1-megapixel sensor and imaging processor help it capture exceptional photos that rival those taken by more higher-end cameras, even in low light. Add in Full HD movie recording, a relatively fast burst shooting mode and a ton of advanced features, and the D5200 stands as one of the best DSLR investments a beginning photographer can make.Pros
Captures sharp, detailed photos with its new 24.1-megapixel CMOS sensor, even at higher ISOs; Features a familiar (D5100) but refined body design; Records Full HD video with full-time autofocus tracking; Packs a ton of advanced features into a consumer-friendly body at a great price.Cons
Autofocuses a little slowly for its class and struggles at times in low light; Changing some basic settings takes more time and effort than it should; Mediocre kit lens.Price and availability
