The D3200 was launched in 2012, and still has a lot to off er

Re­leased (year): 2012 Price new: £560/$699 Price used: £150/$180

The D3200 packs plenty of use­ful fea­tures into its com­pact frame. De­signed pri­mar­ily as a cam­era for ‘be­gin­ners’, one of its stand­out at­trac­tions is an in­ter­ac­tive ‘Guide’ mode. Along with in­tel­li­gent scene anal­y­sis and fully au­to­matic shoot­ing, this makes it ideal for shar­ing with non-en­thu­si­ast pho­tog­ra­phers.

Also suit­able as a back-up cam­era for more ad­vanced pho­tog­ra­phers, it boasts a 24.2Mp CMOS im­age sen­sor cou­pled with an EXPEED 3 pro­ces­sor; a sen­si­tiv­ity range of ISO100-6400 (ISO12,800 ex­panded); a high-res 920K pixel rear screen; and rea­son­ably brisk 4fps con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing. For video, there’s full 1080p cap­ture on tap, and a socket for at­tach­ing an ex­ter­nal mi­cro­phone.

All in all, the lit­tle D3200 is well spec­i­fied and able to cap­ture great images. How­ever, bear in mind that up-mar­ket fea­tures – like the abil­ity to drive aut­o­fo­cus on lenses that don’t have in­ter­nal mo­tors – are ab­sent, and you can’t con­fig­ure the pop-up flash to act as a wire­less com­man­der for re­mote off-cam­era flash­guns.
