The nikon d5200 dslr camera features a 24.1mp dx-format cmos sensor and expeed 3 image processor to produce high quality imagery while delivering fast performance to all camera functions. The combination of these two technologies is a native sensitivity up to iso 6400, which is then further expandable to iso 25600. The processing speed of the expeed 3 also contributes to a fast continuous shooting rate of 5fps.
A 39-point autofocus system enables the d5200 to acquire precise focus quickly across the image frame, and nine cross-type points are centrally located to give even more accurate focusing abilities to critical subject matter. In regard to exposure handling, a 2,016-pixel rgb sensor is utilized by nikon's scene recognition system to analyze both color and brightness values within a scene to best determine exposure settings as well as white balance, i-ttl, and also focus settings
