Want to share your pictures on the go?


WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter

By using the WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter, you can transmit images from the D5200 to a Wi-Fi equipped smart device* such as a smartphone or tablet, and share your images via social networking services or email easily.

You can also shoot through your mobile device. You can shoot through a smart device using the Live view function** of the D5200, together with the use of the WU-1a.

The WU-1 is available separately for purchase.

*Dedicated application is required. The application can be downloaded from the Google Play Store (free). Compatible OSs: Andoird 2.3 series (smartphone); Android 3.X series (tablet). The iOS compatible application will be available soon. ** Live view function is not compatible when shooting video remotely with the smart device.

Stress-Free Remote Shooting


WR-R10/WR-T10 Wireless Remote Controller

Shooting remotely is now made simple and convenient by connecting the WR-R10 (transceiver) to the D5200 and using the WR-T10 (transmitter) as the controller. Wireless control (which uses electromagnetic waves) is much more efficient than infrared remote control, as obstacles such as trees and walls no longer hinder communication between the transceiver and transmitter.

In addition, the camera can now be operated from greater distances and broader angles using the WR-R10/WR-T10. Operations such as autofocusing (when the shutter-release button is pressed half way), movie recording, continuous shooting, and quiet release mode, are also possible.

New CMOS sensor with 24.1 Megapixels

Incorporating the latest Nikon DSLR technologies – a 24.1MP DX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 3 image-processing engine to name just two, the D5200 delivers outstanding image quality, sharpness and depth. Its CMOS sensor offers a remarkably extendable ISO range of 100 – 25,600 with reduced noise so you can shoot at faster shutter speeds and capture scenes and subjects with less blur. Even in low light your handheld shots and full HD movies will look superb.

High-density 39-point Autofocus system

Capture sharp images wherever your subject is located in the frame with 39 autofocus points. Nikon’s exclusive 3D-tracking, together with the Scene Recognition System, keeps your main subject in focus even if the composition changes.

Vari-angle LCD monitor for flexible shooting

The 3-inch vari-angle LCD monitor gives you the freedom to take pictures and record movies from angles that would otherwise be too difficult with a standard viewfinder. Capture fun self portraits, waist level candid and overhead shots easily – simply twist the monitor for the best viewing angle. Now you can get creative from any point of view.

Shoot Full (1080p) HD movies

With Full HD capability, the D5200 delivers exceptional sharpness and clarity and can capture fluid motion easily. The continuous autofocus tracks your subjects in motion and renders fast moving scenes naturally. Plus the new built-in stereo microphone brings your movies to life with rich, high quality sound. For precise, directional sound simply attach Nikon’s optional ME-1 stereo microphone.

Have more fun with your photos

The D5200’s range of special effects lets your creativity run wild. Selective Colour isolates any colour within the scene; capture details in places too dark for your own eyes using Night Vision; create bright, glowing images filled with atmosphere with High Key; emphasise the mood of a scene using Low Key; Miniature Effect makes a scene look like a miniature scale model; and Colour Sketch creates colour outlines of the subject that are played back as a series of stills in a slide show.

HDR (High Dynamic Range)

In scenes with extreme contrasts, such as bright, sunlit clouds and a foreground deep in shadow, it was once quite difficult to render the textures of both equally. Not any more. D5200 combines two exposures to create an image revealing an extremely wide dynamic range, with less noise and richer colour gradation than ever before.

Speed and performance that delivers

With high-speed continuous shooting at approx. 5 frames per second, you’ll never miss a moment. And with the D5200’s large optical viewfinder providing accurate and realistic composition, you’ll get a precise view and focus in every situation.

Summary of key features:

  • High-speed, multifunctional and high-performance image processing engine “EXPEED 3”, equivalent to that of the Nikon’s flagship model, D4.
  • A comprehensive range of Special Effects for still images and movies that lets you experiment with numerous creative expressions, just select the setting prior to shooting.
  • Wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 6400 (expandable to ISO 25600 equivalent) that delivers sharp images with reduced image blur even in low-lit situations or sports scenes.
  • High-speed continuous shooting at approx. 5 fps that captures decisive moments.
  • New built-in Stereo microphone, Full HD (1080p) Movies with selectable 60i/50i frame rate.
  • Easy-to-understand and easy-to-operate, new GUI that effectively utilises graphic processing.
  • Large, easy-to-view, approx. 921k-dot, wide viewing angle (170°), 3-inch vari-angle LCD monitor.
  • Energy-saving design that achieves approx. 500 shots per charge (with EN-EL14, in single-frame mode).
  • Compatible with the WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter (optional) that enables transmission of images to smartphone or tablet PC wirelessly.
  • Compatible with the WR-R10/WR-T10 Wireless Remote Controllers (optional). Remote control is ensured even if there are obstacles in the way.
  • 16 options of Scene Modes that enable selection of the most appropriate mode according to the scene or subject.
  • Variety of image-editing functions that allow you to retouch images easily after shooting, such as NEF (RAW) processing, Trim and Fisheye.
