Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor with 24 effective Megapixels
Featuring 24.2 effective megapixels, the D3200's large image sensor faithfully reproduces the texture and brightness of subjects. It is also possible to emphasise subjects by beautifully blurring the background. With the high pixel count of 24.2 Megapixels, satisfactory resolution can be achieved even when trimmed images are printed.
11-point AF system
The D3200 incorporates a high-speed and highly accurate 11-point AF system. A cross-type sensor covers the most frequently used centre area to deliver superior subject-acquisition and focusing performance. With Scene Recognition System, the D3200 shows enhanced subject identification and composition change detection. In Auto-area AF mode, the D3200 achieves focus at the appropriate focus point by detecting background, foreground and subject. In 3D-tracking (11 points) mode, the focus point automatically changes to track the subject even if it moves or composition is changed while the shutter-release button is pressed halfway. Also, the camera employs superimposed indicators for brightness and easy-to-see viewfinder information. Focus points are displayed clearly.
Easier-to-use Guide Mode that shows you exactly how to take great pictures
The D3200 employs Guide Mode that enables you to take pictures and movies the way you want, even if you are a first-time user of a DSLR. By following the guides displayed in the monitor, you can select from a variety of effects, such as "Soften background" to emphasize the subject, "Capture reds in sunsets", or "Take bright/dark photos". The D3200 has a compact and lightweight body that can be carried and handled easily. Safe handling is further enhanced with expanded finger rests on the front and rear. Because the camera can be held stably, sharp pictures with minimised blur can be captured. The refined layout of buttons and dials ensures comfortable operation.
Superior durability, accuracy and operability – highly reliable shutter
The D3200's shutter unit is tested for 100,000 cycles. The Release Mode button/Self-timer button/Remote control button on the camera back enables selection of release modes from Single frame, Continuous, Self-timer, Delayed Remote (2 s), Quick-response remote and Quiet shutter release. The Quiet shutter release mode is convenient when you want to shoot with reduced shutter-release sound. It also contributes to high-speed continuous shooting at approximately 4 fps.
Selectable AF-area modes in viewfinder shooting
Ideal for stationary subjects. You can focus on the subject selecting one of the 11 focus points according to your composition. This mode is convenient when you want to focus on a desired point when shooting flowers or portraits.
Suitable for capturing fast moving subjects. Select one of the 11 focus points. In AF-A or AF-C mode, if the subject briefly leaves the selected focus point, the camera will focus based on information from the surrounding points.
The D3200 detects the subject using information from all 11 focus points and automatically focuses on it. This mode is recommended for shooting when you want to capture decisive moments reliably such as for snapshots.
3D-tracking (11 points)
The D3200 focuses on a subject using a selected focus point. In AF-A or AF-C mode, once the camera has set a selected focus point, the focus point automatically changes to track the subject even if it moves or composition is changed while the shutter-release button is pressed halfway. This is convenient when composition is a priority.
Comfortable live view shooting using a large LCD monitor
Live view shooting using an LCD monitor feels more like shooting with a compact digital camera. This is convenient when it is difficult to use the viewfinder to take high-angle or low-angle shots, or when you want to determine composition using approximate 100% frame coverage in landscape or portrait photography. You can shoot while confirming your subject with the large, easy-to-view, 7.5-cm (3-in.) VGA (approx. 921k-dot), LCD monitor. The desired AF area can be selected by moving a focus point with the multi selector. For close-up shooting of flowers and other small subjects using a tripod, you can magnify images up to approx. 9.4 times to check the exact focus.
Three focus modes – selectable according to your subject
Single-servo AF (AF-S)
Suitable for a stationary subject such as landscapes, architecture or flowers.
Full-time-servo AF (AF-F)
Convenient for shooting a moving subject which is usually difficult to focus on, such as a child or pet. Available in both live view mode and movie recording. Camera focuses continuously as the subject moves.
Manual focus (MF)
Manual focusing. Suitable for a subject for which autofocus is difficult, such as an animal in a cage or a person in the shade with the sun in the background.
Adding creativity in-camera after shooting – Retouch menu
The D3200 comes equipped with various in-camera image-editing functions. These in-camera functions let you retouch images easily. There are a variety of options such as Selective colour that creates a black-and-white image except for the colour(s) you want to emphasize, Miniature effect for a diorama-like image, or Color sketch for a sketch-style image. In each case, a duplicate image is created, leaving the original securely intact.
Retouch options include: D-Lighting, Red-eye correction, Trim (3:2, 4:3, 5:4, 16:9 and 1:1), Monochrome (Black-and-white, Sepia and Cyanotype), Filter effects (Skylight, Warm filter, Red/Green/Blue intensifier, Cross screen and Soft), Colour balance, Image overlay, NEF (RAW) processing, Resize, Quick retouch, Straighten, Distortion control, Fisheye, Colour outline, Color sketch, Perspective control, Miniature effect, Selective color, Edit movie.

Enables playback of still images and movies on High-Definition TV – HDMI supported
The D3200 supports HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) that allows you to play back still images and movies with High-Definition TV HDMI mini connector (Type C) is employed as the interface. Also, the D3200 is compatible with HDMI-CEC (Consumer Electric Control) that enables remote operation of the camera using a TV remote control.
Transmits taken images from the camera to a computer wirelessly – Eye-Fi card (on the market) compatible
The D3200 can transmit taken image data (JPEG) from the D3200 to a computer wirelessly. You can also use online photo sharing and storage services such as "my Picturetown" and transmit images to a computer automatically.
Built-in flash and optional Speedlights
When you shoot in low-light, backlit or shaded conditions, the D3200 detects the situation of the subject, pops up the built-in flash automatically and shoots (Shooting mode must be set to Auto, Portrait, Child, Close up or Night portrait). An optimal amount of light for the scene realises naturally reproduced images.
Lets you enjoy shooting with flash easily – optional Speedlight
If light with the built-in flash is insufficient, it is recommended to use an optional Speedlight. Bounce flash operation, which bounces the flash light off the ceiling or a wall, is made possible with a Speedlight. It fills your shooting scenes with soft light, minimises unnatural shadows caused by direct flash light and produces a more natural-looking image.
Simple and slim styling with reliable holding and superior operability
A compact and lightweight design is employed to ensure comfortable carrying and holding. The indented area of the grip on the front and thumb rest space on the back have been widened as much as possible to achieve reliable holding. Because the camera is held securely, sharp pictures with minimal camera shake can be captured. The D3200 also has a refined layout of buttons and dials. The mode dial is moderately inclined for natural operation, while button layout around the shutter-release button ensures comfortable operation. You have a choice of two colors – black and red.
Long-life battery due to energy-saving design – EN-EL14 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery
The D3200's efficient energy-saving design allows you to shoot approx. 540 shots per charge with the EN-EL14 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery.
Extensive playback functions selectable according to your applications
The D3200 gives you a variety of playback display options that take advantage of the large 7.5-cm (3-in.) monitor. The number of images displayed at one time can be selected from 1, 4, 9 and 72, and calendar display arranges images in chronological order. Playback zoom of face function is also available that is convenient when checking the focus of a subject accurately.
