Nikon unveils all-new DSLR camera
Dubai, November 7, 2012
Nikon ME has introduced the D5200 digital SLR camera, a compact and lightweight entry-level model that delivers exceptionally via Nikon’s all-new DX-format CMOS sensor, which has a pixel count of approximately 24.1 million.
Building upon the D5100, the camera possesses greatly enhanced optical technologies, including an optimised Expeed 3 image-processing engine, based on the one built into Nikon’s D4 flagship camera.
Created for full-scale photography enthusiasts, the D5200 offers an image-processing engine that offers superior resolution and image quality with very little noise at high sensitivities, a statement from Nikon said.
Like the D5100, the D5200’s side-hinged vari-angle monitor gives users shooting flexibility from any angle and the ability to take self-portraits.
Takashi Yoshida, managing director, Nikon Middle East, said: “As Nikon continues to maintain a leading position in the D-SLR category, we remain committed to providing customers in the Middle East with versatile, high-quality cameras such as the D5200 that can achieve the same performance as other higher-end models. This launch is a testimony to Nikon’s continued commitment to our customers in the region.”
With the most focus points available in its class – 39 – the D5200 offer fast and reliable focus acquisition and tracking. The scene recognition system, which uses the same 2,016-pixel RGB sensor found in high-end Nikon cameras, accurately analyses a scene’s brightness and colour information to a new degree, with the benefits clearly reflected when the autofocus, automatic-exposure, i-TTL balanced fill-flash, and auto white-balance functions are used.
The camera also sports a broad range of standard sensitivities, from ISO 100 to ISO 6400, with even higher available settings; (Hi 2) is equivalent to approximately ISO 25600.
The D-Movie function supports recording in 1920 × 1080 60i/50i, which means picture-perfect and highly detailed HD movies, the statement said.
The combination of the special effects mode that allows users to apply and adjust custom effects while shooting, with the vari-angle LCD monitor that gives users the freedom to shoot from a wide range of angles.
The camera can also connect with smart devices via the wireless mobile adapter WU-1a (sold separately), or be remotely controlled via the new wireless remote controller WR-R10/WR-T10 (both available separately).
When the WU-1a is connected to the camera, images can be transferred to smart devices, such as a smart phone or tablet. The smart device can also be used to operate the camera remotely.
In addition, by connecting the all-new WR-R10 (transceiver) and WR-T10 (transmitter) to the D5200, users can remotely control the camera from greater distances, broader angles and through obstacles.
The WR-T10 transmitter can also be used to control multiple cameras at the same time, via multiple WR-R10 receivers. – TradeArabia News Service
