Las Vegas, CES Booth #8643, January 7, 2013 – Today, Nikon Canada
Inc. announced the Canadian availability of the Nikon D5200, a camera
that provides the imaginative features and HD-SLR versatility needed to
fulfill any creative vision through stunning imagery and Full HD (1080p)
video. Whether users are new to HD-SLR shooting or are simply ready to
step up to a higher level of photography, the 24.1-megapixel D5200 will
inspire them to capture with an easy-to-use interface, in-camera Special
Effects and creative modes, and the ability to share wirelessly in an
instant. The Nikon D5200 will be available with the AF-S DX NIKKOR
18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens in January at a Manufacturer’s Suggested
Retail Price (MSRP) of $929.95*.

“The Nikon D5200 is intended for users who want to capture and share
their lives, experiences and adventures in new and original ways,”
said Gregory Flasch, National Advertising and Communications Manager at
Nikon Canada. “The D5200 features Nikon’s latest innovative
technologies along with an easy-to-use feature set that enables users to
unleash their creativity, and truly test the boundaries of a
photographer’s imagination.”

Imaginative Features Inspire Creativity
The Nikon D5200 is designed to foster imaginative possibilities,
allowing users to easily document their lives with a compact and
lightweight HD-SLR camera body. Loaded with features for creating
amazing images and Full HD video, the D5200 is a must-have camera for a
well-planned excursion or spontaneous adventure. Photographers have the
ability to tell stories with artistic flair, thanks to the assistance of
features including:
● Vari-Angle LCD – The high-resolution, 921,000-dot 3-inch LCD
screen swivels and rotates at a variety of angles, and is viewable at
170 degrees. This makes it easy to capture images and Full HD (1080p)
video from creative angles such as above the crowd or down low from a
toddler’s perspective. Users can even swivel the LCD screen for
creative and fun self-portraits.
● In-Camera Special Effects for video and still images – By
selecting the Effects option on the Mode Dial, users can apply a wide
range of creative filters and effects for both photos and Full HD
(1080p) video. Modes include Selective Colour to visually highlight up
to three selected colours within a monochrome scene; Colour Sketch to
create a vivid drawing from a scene; Miniature Effect to make a scene
appear as a miniature model; and Night Vision to enable images and video
in situations with very low-light by increasing the camera sensor’s
sensitivity. Users can also enable modes to emphasize silhouettes or
create colour effects with high-key and low-key images and video. These
effects can be applied prior to shooting the photo or video, or can be
applied post-capture for photos through the retouch menu.
● Creativity has never been easier – The D5200 features an enhanced
graphical user interface (GUI) that makes it easy to visualize camera
settings for optimal results. Additionally, users can enable other
visual effects including High Dynamic Range (HDR) and six settings of
Nikon’s Picture Controls to creatively and automatically manipulate
tone and colour for striking images and Full HD video.

Creativity Without Boundaries
The D5200 takes advantage of Nikon’s new 24.1-megapixel DX-format
CMOS sensor to deliver amazing image quality and beautiful HD video that
bursts with vivid colour, broad dynamic range and gorgeous tones, even
in challenging light. Users are now able to realize the full potential
and the performance benefits of HD-SLR photography including rapid
camera response, interchangeable lenses and stunning image quality.
Whether shooting family outings or action sports, the camera is packed
with features that let users create amazing content:
● Wide ISO range (from 100-6400) – For shooting in even the most
challenging lighting conditions, the D5200 covers a wide ISO range, and
is expandable to as high as ISO 25,600. Shooting at high ISO sensitivity
enables users to capture at faster shutter speeds and reduce the effects
of image blur caused by camera shake even in low-light situations or
when shooting a moving subject, delivering clean and sharp images with
minimal noise.
● EXPEED 3 Image Processing – Nikon’s newest processing engine,
dubbed EXPEED 3, drives the rapid response and swift performance of the
camera, while maximizing energy efficiency, reducing image noise and
delivering true-to-life colours.
● Scene Recognition System – Information from the 2,016-pixel RGB
sensor is used to instantly analyze and recognize the scene prior to
capture, resulting in adjustments to exposure, AF and white balance for
the best possible image quality. The result is brilliant landscapes,
flattering portraits and fast-moving action captured with split-second
● 39-point AF system with wide area coverage – The D5200 features
Nikon’s quick and accurate 39-point AF system to help users create
tack-sharp images for a wide variety of subjects. The Multi-CAM 4800 DX
AF sensor works in tandem with the Scene Recognition System to
accurately acquire and track subjects throughout the frame. Users can
lock-on to fast-moving subjects throughout the frame using 3D tracking
to create sharp images of fast action, or use one of the other modes
including single point AF, Dynamic AF and Auto-Area AF. When in Live
View or recording video, contrast detect AF quickly acquires, and can
even track focus through the frame.
● Speed and performance – Whether upgrading from a compact
point-and-shoot or exploring the benefits of HD-SLR photography, users
will appreciate the D5200’s speed to capture fast action and fleeting
moments at the press of a button. The D5200 can shoot full-resolution
images at up to five frames per second to help freeze fast-moving
subjects, and quickly acquires focus thanks to the intelligent AF
system. It delivers great performance with fast start-up time and nearly
imperceptible shutter lag.

The Easy Way to Share Great Pictures
While the Nikon D5200 is capable of capturing remarkable images and
Full HD video, it also enables the user to simply and quickly share
stunning imagery with friends and family. By utilizing the optional
WU-1a wireless mobile adapter1, the connected user can easily share
photos taken on the D5200 to a supported smartphone or tablet, and even
remotely control the camera from up to 15 metres (approximately 49
feet). The Nikon Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility application is
available on Google Play™ for Android™ devices or from iTunes® for iOS

Realize a Vision in Full HD (1080p) Video
For those who want to expand their creative vision with video, the
D5200 D-Movie HD video mode is capable of capturing in Full HD (1080p),
with the option to apply Nikon’s Creative Effects. This feature lets
users take advantage of modes like Selective Colour or Colour Sketch to
create truly customized movies. By simply pressing the dedicated video
record button, movies are recorded at 1080/30p, or at 60i for optimal
playback on many HDTVs when connected via HDMI output. Users have the
ability to record stereo sound through the internal microphone, or
attach an optional external microphone such as Nikon’s ME-12, through
the dedicated microphone terminal.

The Vari-angle LCD provides the opportunity to gain a unique
perspective for video, while full-time autofocus helps users maintain
sharp focus that is critical for HD video. While recording, the contrast
detect AF system has the ability to use normal or wide area AF, track a
subject through the frame, or use Face-priority AF to make sure faces
are always in focus.

NIKKOR, Speedlight and System Compatibility
The creative potential for the D5200 is unlimited when combined with
the versatility of Nikon’s legendary NIKKOR optics and powerful system
accessories. Compatible with Nikon’s dedicated DX-format lenses and
more than 50 FX-format lenses as well as Nikon’s Speedlight System,
the D5200 puts unlimited creativity at the user’s fingertips.

New optional WR-R10 and WR-T10 Wireless Remote Controllers3
The D5200 is also compatible with two new wireless radio frequency
remote accessories, the WR-R10 and WR-T10 Wireless Remote Controllers.
When using these devices, the camera can be triggered remotely, making
it ideal for group shots, remote applications, or to reduce shake when
the camera is mounted on a tripod. This new wireless remote system
operates from a radio signal rather than infrared light, dramatically
increasing functionality and range. Now the camera can be triggered from
up to 20 metres (66 feet) away, and a direct line of sight is not
necessary. The remotes also enable the Bulb mode for long shutter
applications, as well as functions of the camera that are affected by a
half-press of the shutter, including the engagement of the AF system or
starting and stopping video capture. The WR-R10 transceiver can be
connected to the accessory terminal of many Nikon digital SLR and HD-SLR
cameras including the new D5200, D3200 and D600. For those cameras that
feature a 10-pin terminal, the optional WR-A104 adapter can be fastened
to allow use of the wireless remote controllers.
