Reasons For

Nikon D3200 Nikon D5300
6 Reasons For
3D
The Nikon D3200 is 3D, however the Nikon D5300 is not 3D.

3D compatible cameras can take 3D photos with varying degrees of success. Cameras with 2 lenses will generally be able to capture the best 3D pictures.

3D pictures allow you to capture the feel of a place better than a 2D picture could. However you will need a 3D compatible screen to appreciate the results.

Read more Read less | Edit
Lighter
The Nikon D3200 is a 454g digital camera. That's 26g lighter than the Nikon D5300 (480g).

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Read more Read less | Edit
£139 Cheaper
The Nikon D3200 costs £229.99, whereas the Nikon D5300 is £369.00.
More Popular
The Nikon D3200 is a more popular choice amongst buyers.
Better M3.idg.se Review Score
The Nikon D3200 has a M3.idg.se review score of 80%, however the Nikon D5300's rating was only 0% from the same site.
Better Computerbild.de Review Score
Computerbild.de gave the Nikon D3200 a review score of 84%, however the Nikon D5300's rating was only 0% from the same site.
10 Reasons For
A Lot Higher Maximum ISO Sensitivity
The Nikon D5300 is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera, whereas the Nikon D3200 is only a 12,800 maximum ISO speed digital camera (12,800 lower).

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Read more Read less | Edit
Larger Maximum Memory Card Size
The Nikon D5300 is a 64GB maximum memory card size digital camera. That's 56GB larger than the Nikon D3200 (8GB).

This denotes the maximum size of memory card that can be used in this digital camera. Different cameras are designed to take larger capacity cards, so a card that works in one camera may not necessarily work in another.

A digital camera with a larger memory card size means that you can potentially store more photos on the device at once.

Read more Read less | Edit
0.2" Larger Display Diagonal
Nikon D5300 is 3.2" screen, but the Nikon D3200 is only a 3" screen digital camera (0.2" smaller).

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

Read more Read less | Edit
12% Higher Display Resolution
The Nikon D5300 has a display resolution of 1,036,800 pixels, however the Nikon D3200 is only a 921,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (115,800 pixels lower).

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Read more Read less | Edit
60 More Battery Life
The Nikon D5300 takes 600 battery life, however the Nikon D3200 only takes 540 battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Read more Read less | Edit
More Shops Are Selling it
A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.
Two More Awards
The Nikon D5300 has 8 awards, but the Nikon D3200 has 6 awards.

Earlier in the year, we got our hands on the Nikon D5300 ($799.95 MSRP) at CP+ and noted that the camera seemed to be a doppelgänger to the older D5200 in all ways but the AA filter-less sensor. After giving it a spin in the labs, we can tell you th...

What are They Best Used For

Portrait Photography

When ranking cameras for their skill in taking portrait photos, we’ve concentrated on several key attributes. The most important of these are image resolution, sensor size and image stabilisation. A larger image resolution means the portrait will be more detailed, while the sensor and stabiliser means that the portrait won’t be blurry at all. On top of that, a pre-flash can help reduce the chance of red eye, and smile detection can help find that perfect moment Finally, extras like a handheld remote control or a self timer can help with taking self-portraits and group shots.

Landscape Photography

When ranking cameras for their ability to photograph landscapes, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes. The most important of these is optical zoom capability, since it allows you to take detailed photos of particular parts of the landscape from a long way away and still have them come out in good detail. Weight and battery life are also very important, since you may be carrying your camera with your for a long time while walking around - you want it to be light enough to not be a hassle, and with a good strong battery, so it doesn’t run out of juice mid-way through the trip! Finally we have taken into account several important factors, such as environmental protection (especially water and dust resistance) and whether the camera comes with GPS, in order to pin-point exactly where you took the photo for later reference.

Everyday Photography

When ranking cameras for everyday use, we’ve concentrated on size and battery life, since you don’t want your camera weighing you down as you wander, and you definitely don’t want it running out of juice! Good optical sensor size and an image stabiliser are also important, since many of your photos will be taken with very short notice, and these will help reduce any instances of blurring in the photo. Finally, a moving display allows you to tilt the display up and down, in order to raise or lower the camera to find interesting angles, while still being able to see the display to frame the shot.

Sports Photography

One of the most important attributes of a good sports photography camera is speed. The players at a game will normally be moving very fast, so you need a camera that will keep up with them and produce clean, unblurry photos. Therefore a fast shutter speed and an image stabiliser will allow you to react fast to sudden events without the end result turning into a blurry mess. Connected to this, a multi burst (or ‘motor drive’) functionality will allow you to take a larger number of photos in a very short space of time - therefore meaning you’ll have a large number of shots to choose from when selecting the perfect photo afterwards. Because you may be taking an awful lot of photos, a good battery life is very important too. Finally, weatherproofing is always a good idea - rain doesn’t always stop play, and you definitely don’t want it to stop your camera!

Wildlife Photography

When ranking cameras for their ability to photograph wildlife, we've concentrated on a number of key attributes. Optical zoom is important to allow you to take clear, detailed photos of animals without having to get physically close to them. A high ISO sensitivity will help take cleaner photos in low-light conditions. Finally, since animals tend to move (and sometimes quite fast), we consider a trio of the camera's shutter speed, auto focus power and whether it has an image stabilisation system or not. All three of these will help you take crisper, cleaner photos of fast moving objects.

Key Features

Maximum ISO Sensitivity

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Display Diagonal

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

3D

3D compatible cameras can take 3D photos with varying degrees of success. Cameras with 2 lenses will generally be able to capture the best 3D pictures.

3D pictures allow you to capture the feel of a place better than a 2D picture could. However you will need a 3D compatible screen to appreciate the results.

Weight

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.
