The Nikon D3200 is a 24.2-megapixel DX-format DSLR Nikon F-mount camera officially launched by Nikon on April 19, 2012. It was marketed as an entry-level DSLR camera for beginners and experienced DSLR hobbyists who are ready for more advanced specs and performance. It’s since been superseded twice – first by the newer Nikon D3300 and more recently by the Nikon D3400, which we believe is now the best entry-level DSLR camera on the market.
Getting the most out of your Nikon D3200 requires some understanding of how to use it. That’s where having the owner’s manual comes in handy. With proper usage, there is less risk of damage, and you’ll learn how to get the most out of it.
Please be sure to read and save the entire manual before setting up or using your Nikon D3200. Misuse may damage the unit and/or cause harm or serious injury. Download the manual and save it for future reference.
