The built-in optical (pentamirror) viewfinder of the D3200 makes it simpler to take pictures in bright sunshine and other circumstances when it could be challenging to see the LCD panel. The viewfinder features a 0.53x magnification ratio and 95% coverage. 95% coverage indicates that the image you see while shooting will be slightly different from what you see in your viewfinder.
|Image size (pixels)||6,016 x 4,000 [L], |
4,512 x 3,000 [M],
3,008 x 2,000 [S]
|File format||NEF (RAW): 12-bit, compressed|
JPEG: JPEG-Baseline compliant with fine (approx. 1:4), normal (approx. 1:8) or basic (approx. 1:16) compression
NEF (RAW)+JPEG: Single photograph recorded in both NEF (RAW) and JPEG formats
|Picture Control System||Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait, Landscape; selected Picture Control can be modified|

Images are stored on SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards by the Nikon D3200, which also supports Eye-Fi cards. For capturing Full HD video, Nikon advises using cards that are Class 6 or faster. Support is also provided for faster UHS-1 compatible cards.
|Screen Type||Fixed Type, 160° viewing angle|
|Screen size||3.0 inch ( 7.5cm)|
|Screen resolution||921k dots ( VGA )|
The 3.00-inch Fixed Type LCD screen on the Nikon D3200 features a 921k-dot resolution. The screen size and resolution meet the requirements for this class.
Unfortunately, the Nikon D3200’s screen is not conducive to taking selfies.
By directing you to the Aperture Priority option via the mode’s welcoming, blue overlay graphic on the rear LCD, Guide Mode guides you through the procedures. (A brief aside regarding that 3-inch screen: For viewing images, navigating menus, or using features like the Guide Mode, it boasts a good resolution of 921,000 dots.
Our only complaint is that we wish it had a back-folding or side-swiveling articulating LCD. You’ll need to choose a step-up model like the D5100 for that, as usual.) Then, Guide Mode instructs you on how to reduce the f/stop number to blur the background.
|Autofocus||Nikon Multi-CAM 1000 autofocus sensor module with TTL phase detection, 11 focus points (including one cross-type sensor), and AF-assist illuminator (range approx. 0.5 to 3 m/1 ft 8 in. to 9 ft 10 in.)|
|Detection range||-1 to +19 EV (ISO 100, 20°C/68°F)|
|Lens servo||Autofocus (AF): Single-servo AF (AF-S); continuous-servo AF (AF-C); auto AF-S/AF-C selection (AF-A); predictive focus tracking activated automatically according to subject status|
Manual focus (MF): Electronic rangefinder can be used
|Focus point||Can be selected from 11 focus points|
|AF-area mode||Single-point AF, dynamic-area AF, auto-area AF, 3D-tracking (11 points)|
|Focus lock||Focus can be locked by pressing the shutter-release button halfway (single-servo AF) or by pressing ( ) button|
The Nikon D3200 contains autofocus (AF) systems that use both contrast detection and phase detection, ensuring that it can focus quickly and precisely in the majority of circumstances. There are 11 focus locations in the AF system, and 1 of these sensors is a cross-type. Compared to single-type sensors, cross-type sensors are faster and more accurate at locking focus.
Additionally, the Nikon D3200 has face detection autofocus, which automatically locks focus when it detects faces in the frame.
|AF Live view||YES|
|AF Face Detection||YES|
|AF Contrast detection||YES|
|AF Phase detection||YES|
|Number of focus points||11|
|Number of cross-focus points||1|
The actual autofocus speed was one area where Nikon’s entry-level DSLRs felt below average when compared to the competitors. Although the 11-point Multi-CAM 1000 autofocus technology on the D3200 is, as far as we know, identical to the D3000, it felt faster overall.
This might be partly attributable to the brand-new EXPEED 3 image processor or to a built-in algorithm that provides a quicker reaction between the camera and lens. Although we don’t particularly like the AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR kit lens that comes with the Nikon D3200, it locked focus more rapidly in bright light than our previous experience with the D3100.
While full-time autofocusing while making movies is a function that the Nikon D3200, like an increasing number of Nikon’s DSLRs, touts in its marketing brochures, good luck trying to find the setting to enable it.
The basic paper User’s Manual makes no mention of the feature and only makes a passing reference to it in the full Reference Manual on the included CD-ROM. This feature enables the camera to automatically continuously autofocus while you film a scene (such as when shooting a video of a moving subject).

|Video compression||H.264/MPEG-4 Advanced Video Coding|
|Audio recording format||Linear PCM|
|Audio recording device||Built-in monaural or external stereo microphone; sensitivity adjustable|
|ISO sensitivity||ISO 200 to 6400; can also be set to approx. 1 EV above ISO 6400 (ISO 12800 equivalent)|
The Nikon D3200 is excellent for filming quick videos because it has full 1080p(1920 x 1080) HD capabilities (at 30p/25p/24p) that can be saved in MPEG-4 and H.264 formats. The D3200 has a stereo microphone connection, which is really cool considering it’s on an entry-level camera. If you’re truly serious about shooting video with this camera, though, we’d recommend getting a stereo microphone and plugging it into the D3200’s built-in monaural microphone.
|Compatible lenses||Autofocus is available with AF-S and AF-I lenses; Autofocus is not available with other type G and D lenses, AF lenses (IX-NIKKOR and lenses for the F3AF are not supported), and AI-P lenses; Non-CPU lenses can be used in mode M but the camera exposure meter will not function.|
The electronic rangefinder can be used with lenses that have a maximum aperture of f/5.6 or faster
There are presently 316 native lenses that can be used with the Nikon D3200’s Nikon F lens mount. Nikon F mount has one of the widest selections of lenses and has backward compatibility, allowing you to use lenses dating back to the 1960s. Additionally, it is highly supported by lenses made by independent producers.
The Nikon D3200 has a minor drawback in that it lacks an internal focus motor, making it incompatible with older screw-drive autofocus (AF) lenses. With contemporary Nikon AF-S, AF-I, and G lenses, it continues to function properly, while lenses from the 1980s may not autofocus on the Nikon D3200.

|Sync terminal||AS-15 Sync Terminal Adapter (available separately)|
The D3200 contains an internal flash as well as a flash shoe for mounting external flashes.
The built-in flash has no new or unique features and is identical to that of the Nikon D3100 and preceding generations. Unfortunately, entry-level DSLRs lack the ability to command other flashes, so as I demonstrate in my article “How to get the most out of your pop-up flash,” there is no option to “command” other flash units through the camera’s pop-up light. Although you must be careful when using flash to take into account the subject’s distance, shadows, red eye, the height of the lens hood, and other potential issues, the built-in flash performs fantastically as a fill flash and can be utilized in low-light conditions.

|Automatic scene selection||Available in and modes|
Nikon has added a red movie record button to the left of the shutter button on top of the grip. Initially, moving the movie button to the back may seem like a natural choice because pressing the button should initiate a movie shoot. I suddenly recalled that in order to shoot a video, the camera must first be in Live View. You must push the separate Live View (Lv) button on the D3200’s rear to accomplish that. (On the D3100, the switch on the back of the camera that activated the Live View had the movie record button in the middle of it. I like that setup better, and a novice filmmaker could as well.)
|Video output||NTSC, PAL|
|HDMI output||Type C mini-pin HDMI connector|
|Accessory terminal||MC-DC2 Remote Cord (available separately), GP-1 GPS Unit (available separately)|
|Audio input||Stereo mini-pin jack (3.5-mm diameter)|
D3200 has a USB 2.0 (480 Mbit/sec) port and an HDMI port for connecting to compatible devices.
There is a typical USB 2.0 High-Speed port for data transfer to a computer. Using the Type-C Mini HDMI port or the NTSC/PAL switchable composite port, respectively, videos can be viewed on low- or high-definition displays. The HDMI port also supports the Consumer Electronics Control (HDMI-CEC) standard, which enables remote control of some playback features via the HDMI connection via the remote control of an associated display.
