Nikon Outs D3200 Entry Level DSLR With 24MP

Just like that, Nikon has just added the D3200 to its entry level DSLR bevy to replace the D3100. As a kit, Nikon's D3200 is set to retail for just under $700 and will include the body along with a basic 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G kit lens with VR (Vibration Reduction). Nikon wants to push the pixel count to the max giving the D3200 a massive 24.2-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor coupled with the same Expeed 3 processor found in Nikon's D4 that's capable of shooting full HD 1080p video for point-and-shoot, ease of awesomeness.

Is black too boring for you? Well then, the D3200 also comes in this candy apple red color too. Besides the 24-megapixel sensor, the D3200 is capable of continues shooting at 4fps, ISO sensitivity ranging from true 100 to 6400 (expandable up to 12800 for epic grainy images), 60fps video capture option at 720p and a 3-inch back screen with Live View. Nikon claims that the D3200 is capable of performing well in low-light conditions, but we're skeptical. Expect to get your hands on the D3200 kit later this month in either black or red.
