Quick Take

The Nikon D3200 provides some welcome updates to the entry-level series, like a high-res LCD and 4 fps burst shooting. With just a few quirks, it's a worthy option for any beginning user.

The Nikon D3200 boasts a 10 megapixel increase in sensor resolution over its predecessor, the D3100. Successor to the popular entry-level series, the D3200 also brings an increase in monitor resolution.

But resolution and sensor specs aren\’t the only numbers that potential buyers should be interested in; the usable ISO range of a camera is just as important. In our studio tests we capture images through the full range and study the results. With so many extra pixels crammed onto that sensor, there\’s a real danger of overcrowding and poor high ISO performance as a result.

What else is new in the D3200? A burst shooting rate of 4 fps offers an advantage over its predecessor\’s 3 fps. An EXPEED 3 processor keeps things moving. And with an optional wireless adapter, users can share images from the camera with an Android-based phone or tablet. There\’s plenty to entice the beginner and then some.
