    Lens bows at extreme end

    This is a great camera for the price. The overall useability is great. The only negative I have found so far is the lens that comes with the camera tends to bow images when used at either end of the range.

    This is our first full size DSLR camera, but after the recommendation of our sales associate, and many reviews I read on the internet, we are happy with our purchase. It takes beautiful pictures, is very user friendly, and other than it's size and weight, that we're not used to, it is great!

    I really love this camera... even though it's my first and I can't really compare it to much, but my uncle is extremely knowledgeable with cameras and believes that I got a great camera at a great price (especially for my first camera). Only issue I have (which isn't even that much of an issue), when taking photos... you have to slightly hold down the button to focus lens right before you take the picture then push the button all the way down. I've noticed on other camera's that this "half push" is not necessary. Other than that I love it.

    We bought this camera the day before going to Europe. I have never owned or used an SLR, only film or digital compacts. Although there were a lot of things I wish I knew to ensure I had good pictures, we were able to take photos in many conditions mostly with ease using the various settings. Only a handful of pictures in various scenes (motion, dark, shadow, cloudy, direct sun) came out dark, blurry, or with the wrong portion in focus. Many bright light pictures had a pink glare circe in the same spot in various places we visited - I did not use a filter or hood. There are certainly features that we accessed a lot which could benefit from dedicated buttons on the camera rather than digging through menus. Still, overall, most pictures came out very well, and we took a lot in our solid 2 weeks of using it.

    The Nikon D3200 is a fantastic beginner's SLR capable of high quality shots, especially given its price. It shares many great traits with other models in its line, but leaves enough justification for looking at the D5200 or even higher if you find a true passion for photography.

    Pictures taken with my Olympus Evolt 500 were good, but always needed an adjustment for either either lighting or sharpening. I loved to take action photos, but it seemed that 3 out of 5 pictures were blurred. (Also the covering for the CF memory card wouldn't stay shut.) With our first trip to Europe on the horizon, my wife suggested a new camera, Who was I to argue! Research led me to the Nikon D3200. I was hesitant to switch from Olympus to Nikon. (5 of my 6 digital cameras were Olympus. Compared to Nikon, the colors seemed to be warmer. Nikon pictures seemed to be cold and bluish. Of course, that was when I compared them about 13 years ago.) I found that not only did Best Buy have the best price, it had people that knew the camera, and a return policy that was the clincher. I could try it, compare it to my Olympus pictures, and then return it if not satisfied. No way is it going back! I love the Nikon D3200. Easy to use, beautiful clear pictures, action photos unbelievably clear and sharp, and the color is great. Combined with a SanDisk - Extreme 64GB Secure Digital XC (SDXC) Memory Card, and a Nikon - AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED Telephoto Zoom Lens, this camera will meet all my needs.

    I am really new to photography, but my son and I have been playing with this camera and we love it. We loved that we could take action shot of my other son's soccer game and zoom in digitally to the picture and see where the soccer ball was smashed against the kids face or immediately after the kick where there was not a bit of motion blur. I took the camera with me on a trip to Yellowstone. I was having fun zooming in on a bird nest way off in the canyon and I was so excited to see the nest. My best friend pulled out his camera, almost the same model but with a longer lens. He could see the BIRDS in the nest! Can you say "lens envy"?

    Fast camera for capturing a toddler

    I got tired of blurry pictures of my toddler taken with my point & shoot camera and bought the D3200 to catch those moments. I usually use the sports mode--the speed and clarity are great. I love that I can take pictures so quickly. It keeps me from missing those fleeting expressions. I haven't used it on manual mode yet, but look forward to learning about it. I am a novice to dslr cameras but, so far, I've found the D3200 easy to use and I would highly recommend it. I wish I had bought it 2 years ago but I held back because of the price. If I could do it again I would have made the investment earlier.

    I am currently using this on my vacation in Europe. I have taken pictures that are so crystal clear, they look like high def 3D. Shots of landmarks, wildlife & people. I,m very excited with the ease of use and the quality of both the camera and accessories, as well as the quality of pictures. I purchased a 16GB card and plan on filling it with pictures of my vacation in the next two weeks. I've purchased some other well known brand name cameras and the little extra this cost is more than worth it. Wish I would have done it sooner.

    30 years ago, I set down my SLR to pursue other interests. Recently, I learned that I would be sent to Europe for an extended stay and I thought it would be a good opportunity to pick-up a DSLR and re-acquaint myself with the world of photography beyond the smartphone. After quite a few hours looking a several different brands and models of cameras, I settled on the Nikon D3200, and I'm glad I did. Nikon has long been a powerhouse in the camera world and the D3200 doesn't disappoint. In "auto" mode, it is as simple as point and shoot, and the results are fantastic. If you want to use some more advanced techniques, the D3200 can handle the challenge. The kit lens is a good all-around lens, and can be used to take excellent photographs, but most people will want to add at least a telephoto lens of some type and possibly a lens for micro photography. One small complaint that I have with the kit lens is that it doesn't have the bayonet mount common on most Nikkor lenses. The Vibration Reduction feature is top-notch and enables the user to take photos with long exposures without a tripod. I have two main complaints with this camera; first, the battery compartment door seems cheap and flimsy. Even though this camera is at the entry-level price point for DSLR's; the user should get a product with better quality components than the battery compartment door on this camera. Second, I am surprised that the user cannot manually set the white balance by shooting a photo of a white piece of paper or via some other method. That said, the camera does have several preset white balance options to choose from in its menu. My criticisms are minor over-all and I would recommend this camera to anyone looking for a good DSLR that takes great pictures. I have had mine for over a month and I have taken well over 1000 pictures with. Buy it, you won't be sorry.

    I bought this camera as a replacement to my Nikon D60 which began to have shutter problems. Like the D60 this camera is easy to use and since I am still a novice at picture taking that is a big help. The pictures taken are crisp and clear, even when I have the ISO up due to low light. Very good camera for the price.

    Nikon - D3200 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens

    I dreamed about this camera for two years, and, although Nikon has recently offered more updated models, I was thrilled to find this one on sale for $449 at Best Buy. However, I had later regrets for not purchasing the one-step-up sale, offering the same camera for $499 with a 55-200mm lens. So, a few weeks later, I came back and purchased--under a separate transaction--a 55-200mm lens. Fortunately, it was offered to me for half price, ($150, as opposed to $300). Yes, I now realize that I should have purchased the package deal, thereby saving $100, so I recommend that to anyone else out there to buy the bundle. Don't make the same mistake I did; the camera is definitely worth it. But the best part of is, the Nikon 3200 comes with an external mike input--not many cameras do. So you can either record movies with a standard lapel mike, or go for the Nikon Shotgun type. (I have both). The only criticism is that, I wish that they would have provided audio earphone monitoring, other than just a visual audio meter. Would be very nice to be able to sound-monitor what is being recorded. Anyway, most of my comments here have to do with movie recording. However, I assure you that I do both, movies and still photos. The Nikon D3200 takes extremely beautiful photos, and I am very pleased with the results. Hey--go out and buy the thing while the sale lasts.

    Fancy camera at a great price and easy to use. The graphics on the screen make you feel like you are using you pc. Instructions are easy to follow. Compact yet high quality lens. The different programs for different picture modes are great. It was highly recommended by many camera enthusiasts. Great thing is that you can expand with additional lenses in the future. Having a high quality movie option is also great since it avoids taking both, camera and movie camera on trips.

    This camera was a first for me in many ways; my first DSLR, my first exploration into nice camera's/real photography in general, and my first expensive camera. Its great right out of the box and, even with my limited knowledge on the subject, I can take some really amazing pictures! the quality on the display and the picture quality on my tv are amazing. I was worried about dropping so much money on a camera and getting in over my head/not liking it but just the opposite has happened. I love the camera and just playing with it i have learn a lot!

    This is a great camera for a beginner for the price. Lots of features, plus there are many available upgrades and components that can be added on. It is very easy to use, and after a quick skim through the manual, I was off and running. I purchased a 55-300mm lens in addition, and have taken some great photos. Only downside that I see so far is that the camera does not produce good pictures when lighting is less than ideal.

    I really love this camera. I wanted a DSLR for a few years, but didn't realize how much until I finally bought this one. It is so easy to use and the pictures are amazing. The best part of it are the different settings. I have a 3 year old boy who moves fast so the infant setting snaps a million pictures in a row and I FINALLY get smiles. In three years, I might have a total of five pictures with actual smiles with my point and shoot bc by the time it flashed, he'd moved on to several expressions. With this camera, I get ALL the expressions and can choose which to keep. I can't say enough good things about this camera!

    I bought this camera for the kick off of my photography business. It is a very easy camera to use, for those who know a lot about cameras. If you do not know that much, it is very simple to learn how to use it. The camera itself comes with features that will teach the user what each feature does. It also sounds a bit nerdy, but I really enjoy hearing the shutter sounds when it takes a picture.
