Melville, N.Y. – Nikon introduced Tuesday its D5200 DSLR offering several improvements over the D5100.
Advances over the D5100, which continues in the line, are a 39-point autofocus system (up from the 11 points) and a 2,016-pixel RGB metering sensor.
The camera, which is scheduled for a December release at a price to be announced, will pack a 24.1-megapixel APS-C sensor and accepts SDHC and SDXC memory cards.
A new Expeed 3 processor helps lift burst shooting from four to five shots per second.
Video supports FullHD 1080p at rates of up to 60 fps, and a built-in stereo microphone is added for improved sound.
The camera is compatible with Nikon’s WU-1a wireless adapter to send images to iOS and Android devices.
Other features include a flip-out 921,000-dot TFT LCD screen, and a choice of camera body colors black, bronze and red.
