The pixel density of the entry level cameras keep increasing with each release and the new entry level Nikon D3200 is evidence of this. I am not sure when this increase in pixel density will cease.
The D3200 is a high performance entry class camera. This compact lightweight camera utilizes the newly developed Nikon DX format CMOS sensor and the EXPEED 3 image-processing engine that delivers 24.2 megapixels high image quality and ISO sensitivity range from ISO100 to 6400.
There is an easy to use Guide Mode that shows you how to capture great pictures. The camera is available in both black and red.
The image processing engine EXPEED 3 is the same as that used by the Nikon D4 FX format flagship camera and achieves high speed, multiple functions and high performance.
The Scene Recognition System enables beautiful pictures with sharp focus and appropriate brightness and color by recognizing the subject and scene conditions prior to capture.
High-speed continuous shooting at 4 fps to capture decisive moments is provided.
The optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter transmits images to smart devices wirelessly.
There is a variety of in camera image editing functions such as Selective color, Miniature effect, and Trim.
Also, with high-speed readout from the image sensor integrated with the superior image processing capability, Full HD D-Movie at 1,920 x 1,080/30p is provided.
The camera will identify the light source precisely, auto white balance, to ensure perfect colour reproduction.
