Nikon Launches D5200 DSLR and WR-R10, WR-T10 Remote Controllers

Today, Nikon launches a versatile D5200 DSLR camera and two wireless remote controllers, WR-R10 and WR-T10. The pricing and availability of the Nikon D5200, WR-R10 and WR-T10 will be confirmed at a later date.

Primary features of Nikon D5200.

1. Nikon’s 24.1-megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor
The D5200’s DX-format CMOS sensor helps capture clear and sharp images with very little noise, even at higher sensitivities. This is achieved through an effective pixel count of approximately 24.1-million pixels, which supports a broad range of standard ISO sensitivities, from ISO 100 to ISO 6400. The camera offers even higher ISO capabilities with a setting of (Hi 2) that is equivalent to approximately ISO 25600. When used in conjunction with NIKKOR lenses, which feature Nikon’s advanced optical technologies, the finest details will be sharply rendered.

2. Optimised EXPEED 3 Image-Processing Engine
Equipped with an enhanced, high-performance EXPEED 3 image-processing engine, based on the one built into Nikon’s high-end FX-format D4, D800, D800E, and D600, the D5200 offer precise rendering, reproduces colours vividly and features a broad dynamic range. It also features advanced noise-reduction processing that effectively suppresses noise to preserve textures and details when shooting still images at high sensitivities. The same technology ensures that movies feature crisp and clear outlines, even when shooting in low-light situations.

3. Best-in-class AF system
Utilising the Multi-CAM4800DX autofocus sensor module, the D5200 will always acquire and track the intended subject with 39 focus points. Along with cross-type sensors for the nine centre focus points, which are used the most often, users can count on reliable focusing and excellent tracking performance. In addition, the number of active focus points can be limited to 11.

4. A 2,016-pixel RGB Sensor With Built-In Scene Recognition System
The Scene Recognition System automatically detects shooting conditions and analyses a scene’s brightness and colour information, which is used by the autofocus, auto-exposure, i-TTL balanced fill-flash, and auto white-balance functions. The D5200 also boasts 3D focus tracking, an invaluable feature for sports, action and wildlife photography, that automatically shifts and predicts the focus point to follow and anticipate the movement of the subject. Smaller subjects can be identified more easily and up to 35 faces can be recognised when recording movies in live-view mode with the Face-priority AF mode, or when faces are enlarged during playback of still images.

5. High-Speed Continuous Shooting – Up To Approximately 5 fps
With the ability to continuously shoot at up to approximately 5 fps, users will never miss the perfect shot, whether framing images in the optical viewfinder or via the camera’s monitor. With the densely packed 39 focus points effectively covering the majority of the frame, the D5200 will always acquire and track the intended subject, even rapidly moving ones. Users also have the option of selecting the optimal frame rate for capturing natural human expressions during high-speed continuous shooting, which is approximately 3 fps.

6. Vari-angle LCD Monitor – Stress-Free Shooting From Any Angle
The large, 3-inch, approximately 921k-dot LCD monitor features a wide viewing angle and accurate previews. It opens to the left from 0–180°, and when opened, can be rotated 180° forwards and 90° backwards. The side-hinge prevents the monitor from hitting a tripod and allows it to open and rotate without obstruction, for flexible and stress-free shooting, making self portraits possible as well.

7. Nikon’s D-Movie 1920 x 1080 60i/50i – Smooth, Cinematic Videos
The ability to record pristine 1920 × 1080 60i/50i movies is now just a button press away. Nikon’s new DX-format CMOS sensor, with an effective pixel count of approximately 24.1-million pixels, and enhanced, high-speed EXPEED 3 image-processing engine ensure sharp and clear movies with little noise, jagged edges or moiré patterns.

When filming moving objects or subjects, the user simply enables Contrast-detect AF to activate autofocusing. When the focus mode is set to Full-time servo AF (AF-F) and the AF-area mode to Subject-tracking AF, the camera automatically focuses on a subject moving through the frame.

Users can also manually set shutter speed and ISO sensitivity according to their own preferences. Optional recording frame rates range from 60i or 50i (1080), or 24p, 25p or 30p (1080) per second. The camera is equipped with a stereo microphone for excellent audio quality when recording movies. Stereo sound can also be captured via the optional Stereo Microphone ME-1.

8. Special Effects Mode – Creative Imaging Expression
Seven special effects can be applied to still images and movies. With the option of previewing the special effect on the monitor before capturing or recording the image or movie, users can adjust or confirm results of the effect in real time. Movie lovers can now easily insert and enjoy dramatic effects like those created through special effects in the movies with a few simple clicks. Expressing creativity and style have never been so easy.

9. Smart Device Compatibility and Wireless Image Transfer Support
By connecting the Wireless Mobile Adapter WU-1a (sold separately) to the D5200, the live view function can be displayed on a smartphone or tablet’s screen. The user can capture an image remotely (remote movie recording not supported), and images captured with the D5200 can be transferred to the smart device over a wireless connection.

The Wireless Mobile Adapter WU-1a expands the ways in which users can enjoy the photos and movies they have recorded with the D5200 and a NIKKOR lens. Users can immediately transfer images to family and friends, or upload them to blogs or social networking sites, anywhere and anytime.

10. New Graphical User Interface For Intuitive Use
Bringing new levels of user-friendliness to aspiring photographers, the D5200’s new graphical user interface displays three circles that enables the reading and understanding of the three core elements of image exposure – shutter speed, aperture and ISO – extremely easy and intuitive at a single glance. Other core information and settings are also displayed on the camera’s Vari-angle LCD screen.

And here are the two controllers.
