Nikon D5200: what others are saying

Few quotes and videos from around the Web on the newly announced Nikon D5200 camera:

One of the highlights of the camera is its revamped graphical user interface which features three key circular onscreen dials to make changing settings more visual. For instance, you can see the aperture blades closing and opening as you change settings. The user interface also gives you an overview of all your camera settings and allows adjustments of frequently used settings. /Cnet

The D5200 benefits from the same 39-point autofocus system as the D7000, including the 9 cross-type sensors in the middle, as well as the same 2,016-pixel RGB metering sensor. /The Verge

It's also worth pointing out that there are plenty of features that the D7000 offers that haven't made it here [D5200]: there's no weather sealing, it only has one SD slot, the viewfinder's considerably smaller, and it's slower in burst mode, to name a few. /Gizmodo

Overall, the Nikon D5200 should feel welcoming to D5100 owners. The resettled Drive button is the most significant change, and once you've become accustomed to this, you'll have the advantage of an extra dedicated control to help stave off the menu system. /IR

However, some may raise an eyebrow when they learn that the D5200 doesn't have exactly the same sensor as the D3200. The D5200 uses a new 24.1-million effective pixel sensor that has not been seen elsewhere and according to Nikon we can expect the new device to have a more extensive dynamic range. /Techradar

While the D5200 doesn't have much in the way of built-in wireless connectivity, it is compatible with the WU-1a wireless adapter, which lets it transmit images to mobile devices. It can also use the new WR-R10/WR-T10 electromagnetic remote controls. The wireless remote can even be used to activate AF and movie modes when paired with the WR-R10 adapter. /Popphoto
