The New Nikon D5200 Will Have Plenty Of Competition
Nikon will launch the D5200 in hopes that it will shock all critics. This is not an easy task considering the rapid pace of technological advancement at the moment. Think back to all the technological breakthroughs made before now that seem routine. It was not that long ago that a 16-megapixel file was something to be admired. The new D5200 is expected to have a minimum of 24 megapixels if it’s not the 36-megapixel files of the Nikon D800. Burst speed will be increased from 4 frames per second to 8 frames per second. Nikon could push it up to 10, though. Nikon will make to expand the ISO range and noise reduction options, which will be beneficial for potential buyers who are interested in the D5200’s performance in low light. While these improvements could make the D5200 the leader in its category, there are still strong competitors.


This new Nikon is a low-end camera. Many functions are available that can be found on much more expensive Nikon cameras. It is impressive for a camera this low-priced and challenging Canon’s 18-megapixel sensor. Video functions, including an external stereo Mic, HD, and HD, are exceptional and will attract lots of attention from those who want to make films. Nikon has replaced the D3100 with the D3200, bringing their D3100 and D3100 models to the forefront. Price $700/ PS500


Another recent launch, this is a highly competent performer. The Rebel T4i was expected to be the leader in this class, but it has been overtaken by D3200. Although the 18MP file is smaller than the D3200’s, it is not significantly more prominent. The D3200’s 24MP file is only 16% larger. It is difficult to distinguish the two files in most cases. Canon has given the Rebel HD video and stereo sound, recognizing that people may wish to take stills or video. Canon has not been afraid to invent – T4i is now touched sensitive and features an articulated screen. Canon has also included the new contrast auto-focus system after they noticed the success of mirrorless CSC markets. While many functions are identical to the Rebel T3i’s, the Rebel T4i has enough to be worth your consideration. Price $1100/ PS990


While the T4i has all the attention, the Rebel T3i remains an excellent camera. We are referring to the beginner-level market. The Rebel T3i is an excellent option with the same 18MP sensor and price. It features an articulated back screen, HD video modes, and stereo sound, just like the D5100. The Rebel’s burst speed of 3.7 FPS is a little slow, and there are only nine focus points. Although it may seem a bit tired, this is still a great introduction to D-SLRs as well as the Canon brand. Price $700/ PS550


This is Canon’s most basic DSL-SLR. It is Canon’s most basic D-SLR. Although it has only 12 MegaPixel images and 9-point autofocus, it is an excellent way to move up from compact or bridge cameras. The on-screen functions guide is beneficial and intuitive and can be used to help novices navigate the technology. The video is a bit too short at 720pp, which is not enough for web use. This camera is not a serious contender for the D5200, as it’s intended for someone at the beginning of their D/SLR journey. Price: $500/ PS375


While the D-SLR class is dominated by the two big brands, it is worth looking at other manufacturers if you aren’t a diehard fan of either Nikon or Canon. Pentax K-30 is a great camera and sits at the top of the entry-level range in terms of price and functionality. The camera has a 16-megapixel file, and, untypically, you can see through the viewfinder 100%, making cropping easier. The buffer is able to hold 30 frames per burst and has a good burst speed of 6 frames per second. The HD video has a remarkable 24,25, and 30 frames per second. Pentax offers the option of powering the camera using standard AA batteries, which can prove very useful. It is weatherproofed and made from toughened plastic. Price with 18-55mm Lens $900/PS650


The SLR is so deeply ingrained in the photographic psyche it’s easy to believe there is no other system. While the significant manufacturers push D-SLR users towards CSC functionality, Sony has chosen a different route. The Alpha 57 is a single-lens transparent (SLT) model. Sony has created a semi-transparent fixed mirror. This mirror bounces light back to the viewfinder, allowing the camera to take the shot. This mirror has been used by Sony for some time and produces some excellent results. Although the 16MP sensor on the A57 is of excellent quality, it will need some adjustments if taken in low light. The advantage is that the shot can be seen continuously, even at 10FPS. You can choose between 25FPS and 50FPS HD videos. The camera also features digital zoom and an ISO maximum of 16,000. This camera is quite good for the price. Price $700 / PS500
