Vastly more megapixels (photo)
1.96x more megapixels (photo)
Notably larger sensor
15.4 x 23.2 mm
14.7 x 22.2 mm
9.48% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
Substantially more focus points
2 more focus points. The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
Significantly lower noise at high ISO
49.80% lower noise at high ISO. The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. Source: DxOMark.
Significantly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
33.33% faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
Sizably better image quality
19 better image quality. A device's overall image quality score considers: color depth, dynamic range and low light performance. Source: DxOMark.
A little bit lighter
40 g lighter
Notably higher maximum light sensitivity
2x higher maximum light sensitivity. With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
Vastly better video recording quality
1080 x 30 fps
720 x 29.97 fps
1.50x better video recording quality
Measurably better color depth
10.05% better color depth. The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. Source: DxOMark.
Faster video autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting movies
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper movies.
Notably higher pixel density
1.80x higher pixel density
Significantly higher resolution
4x higher resolution
Measurably wider dynamic range
20% wider dynamic range. The better the dynamic range the system captures a wider number of values from dark to light leading to more details in low and highlights. Source: DxOMark.
A little less body volume
9.89% less body volume
Noticeably higher resolution (screen)
921 k dots
230 k dots
691 k dots higher resolution (screen). A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
4.90 mm narrower
A bit shorter
3.70 mm shorter
Has a microphone in
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
Clearly less shutter lag
0.07 s less shutter lag. The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
A little thinner
1.40 mm thinner
Modestly bigger screen size
11.11% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
The D3200 is compatible with GP-1 GPS Unit that is able to embed location information on an image. Latitude, longitude and altitude of a shooting location are recorded as Exif data.
