Even though the Nikon D5200 is several months older than the Nikon D7100, the former is still a popular choice with those with less money to spend on a new DSLR, although don’t worry about having to compromise too much on features. We say this because the D5200 uses the same sensor as the newer and more expensive model, and like we said before, that saving could go to a better lens at a later date.
In the past an SLR was used for just taking images, but all that has changed with the introduction of the DSLR, improved technology and also storage capacity. However, some of you will still be skeptical about using your DSLR for recording videos, but below you will see the Nikon D5200 video capture quality shown in a test spread across three videos.
The first is a Nikon D5200 daylight test, and the results are rather impressive, although the sound quality could be a little better. Next we have the Nikon D5200 low light test, and you’ll notice how well it picks details up where there is a light source in the distance. The other footage of people walking past is pretty much what we expect from a camera like this.
The final video is yet more low-light Nikon D5200 video footage and is of moving traffic, which helps to give you an idea of how well the camera performs at faster frames when there isn’t much light. Just for the record, the footage was shot at a high ISO sensitivity.
If you are starting to consider this camera, then might we suggest looking over the final video, which is a Nikon D5200 review. It’s our hope that with these four videos you will see if the D5200 is for you, and if you feel as though you need something with just a little more, then the D7100 could be the next step, if you wish to stick with Nikon that is.
