This would be my primary digital camera. Very good machine, it makes the job a pleasure. I do not use for my usual work, but I do use it in my profession very often, this reason being the one I bought it for.
The Nikon D3200 is a 24.2 megapixel DX format DSLR Nikon F-mount camera officially launched by Nikon on April 19, 2012. It is marketed as an entry-level DSLR camera for beginners and experienced DSLR hobbyist who are ready for more advanced specs and performance.
Use especially for beginners can be assisted by guide modes (integrated tutorials). It replaces the D3100 as Nikon’s entry level DSLR, but its improved image quality has been compared to that of pro DSLRs. Based on DxOMark, the Nikon D3200 entry-level crop DSLR surpassed both resolution and DxOMark Overall Sensor Score of the fullframe Canon EOS 5D Mark II, although 5D Mark II was state-of-the-art when it was launched 4 years before.
As I have said, I use this for professional reasons. After purchasing it as a regular kit, I added a 55-200mm lens and several gizmos, all for making my professional jobs as better as possible:
Wireless adapter WU-1a
WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter primarily allows two things to happen. First, it enables your Android phone or tablet (and soon, iOS device) to act as a wireless display. You shoot an image, and within seconds, that image is ready for your ogling on a far larger display than the 3-incher found on the D3200’s backside. For those looking for a far better way to review each shot without pulling out the laptop, this is it.
The other function is the ability to use a mobile device to wirelessly trigger a shot. The adapter relies on WPS (WiFi Protected Setup) in order to converse with one’s Android device, enabling a connection even when you’re away from a cellular data signal or WiFi network.
Nikon 55-200mm zoom lens
The 55-200mm VR zooms easily and precisely. The zoom range is well spaced, and VR works great. It focuses reasonably quickly, but not as fast as more expensive lenses. The 55-200mm VR doesn’t offer instant manual focus override: you have to move a switch, but for the price, I’m not complaining.
Sharpness and performance are extraordinary. A lens this inexpensive never used to have the right to be this embarrassingly good. VR (Vibration Reduction or image stabilization) works great; I can shoot at 1/30 at 200mm and get sharp shots without a tripod! The results are amazing and I cannot praise this lens enough.

Meike MK-300 TTL Flash Speedlite
Physically, the MK-300 flash is reminiscent of the Nikon SB400. The flash element does not seem to tilt up though, This means no flash bouncing when on the camera. However, if you’re clever there are ways around that like using a short hot shoe cable.
The MeikE MK-300 has i-TTL exposure control and sports 22 levels of manually adjusted power. A stroboscopic (multi-flash/repeat) function is also available. There is an also a USB and a LCD screen plus much more controls than the SB400. The recycle time at full power is slow at about 6 seconds.
Macro & Wide lens
This 0.45x Wide Angle Lens with “MACRO” fits right over your camera existing lens system, allowing you to get more in the picture, include more of the landscape, more people in group picture, and interiors show more of the room.
It also has the separate Macro lens, that can be used for very detailed close up pictures.
