Nikon D3200 Lab test re­sults

NPhoto - - Gear Zone -

The D3200 edges ahead of the Nikon 1 J5 but loses out to all of the com­pet­ing D-SLRs in the group for cap­tur­ing fine de­tail.

Colour ren­di­tion can stray a lit­tle to the warm side, es­pe­cially when us­ing auto white bal­ance, but it’s pleas­ant over­all.

Lab scores for noise are good, but noise in high-ISO im­ages is more ob­vi­ous than from newer Nikons.

There’s usu­ally good de­tail in shad­ows, but neg­a­tive ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion can be re­quired to avoid high­lights wash­ing out.

OVER­ALL BENCH­MARK

The ma­trix me­ter­ing sys­tem is prone to pro­duc­ing overly bright im­ages, but over­all im­age qual­ity is good, with plenty of vi­brancy. Shots are slightly nois­ier than those from the newer cam­eras on test.
