Reproduces even fast-moving scenes beautifully — D-Movie compatible with 1920 x 1080 60i/50i

The D5200 allows you to record movie with sharpness, clarity and fluid motion easily. Utilizing the newly developed Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 3, which is equivalent to that of higher models, the D5200 deliver movies with reduced noise, jaggies and moiré. It renders various fast-moving scenes naturally, such as galloping horses, the splashing of water or the view from a moving car. The D5200 also employs subject-tracking AF that tracks and maintains focusing on a moving subject and face-priority AF that is optimal for portrait shooting. The movie-record button is located next to the shutter-release button. You can start/stop movie recording as if shooting still images while holding the camera stably and camera shake that may occur during operation is minimized. If you want to shoot according to your creative intention, it is possible to set the shutter speed and ISO sensitivity manually* (in mode M). In combination with unique shooting angles using the vari-angle LCD monitor and NIKKOR lenses that feature high resolution, you can enjoy advanced, creative movie recording by making clips, short films or video projects combining stills and video.
The D5200 also employs a variety of movie-editing features that can be accomplished easily inside the camera and without the need for a computer. It is possible to delete unwanted parts by choosing the start and end point in single frame units, and save a selected frame as a JPEG image with the same image size as that of the selected movie frame.

Built-in stereo microphone that enables you to record rich, high-quality sound [NEW]

The D5200's built-in stereo microphone lets you enjoy recording rich, high-quality sound. The sensitivity level can be adjusted, choosing from auto and manual (1 to 20 steps) according to the shooting situation. Select low level (smaller value) for scenes in louder environments, such as a concert hall; high level (large value) for quieter environments, with more delicate ambient sounds, such as a murmuring stream.

ME-1 Stereo Microphone (optional) compatible

In addition to the built-in microphone, the D5200 lets you record stereo sound with the optional ME-1 Stereo Microphone. Using the ME-1 Stereo Microphone reduces noise caused by lens vibration recorded during autofocus shooting. You can select the microphone sensitivity setting in the same way as with the built-in stereo microphone.
