16 Reasons why Nikon D3200 is better

Comparing Nikon D3200 vs Pentax K-50

1.Significantly more megapixels (photo)
24.7MPvs 16.28MP (Pentax K-50)
455gvs 650g (Pentax K-50)
3.Notably longer battery life
540shotsvs 410shots (Pentax K-50)
CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
4.Faster video autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting movies
Yesvs No (Pentax K-50)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper movies.
5.Has a 24p cinema mode
Yesvs No (Pentax K-50)
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
96mmvs 129mm (Pentax K-50)
7.Has a microphone in
Yesvs No (Pentax K-50)
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
8.Has AF tracking
Yesvs No (Pentax K-50)
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
9.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (Pentax K-50)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
10.Clearly faster flash X-sync
0.005svs 0.005556s (Pentax K-50)
Flash synchronization is defined as the firing of a photographic flash coinciding with the shutter admitting light to the image sensor. In general, faster flash sync speeds are better if the photographer needs to flash-fill subjects that are backlit and wants to avoid motion blur, or wants to increase depth of field by using a high aperture.
11.Clearly more lenses available
169vs 27 (Pentax K-50)
A bigger variety of brand lenses means that you have more options and can find one that suits your needs.
12.Has a HDMI output
Yesvs No (Pentax K-50)
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
13.Order function

14.Has GPS
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.
15.Product service

2. Pentax K-50

15 Reasons why Pentax K-50 is better

Comparing Pentax K-50 vs Nikon D3200

1.Substantially larger sensor
23.7 x 15.7mmvs 23.2 x 15.4mm (Nikon D3200)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.Significantly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
6fpsvs 4fps (Nikon D3200)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
3.Clearly higher maximum light sensitivity
51200ISOvs 12800ISO (Nikon D3200)
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.
4.Sizably faster maximum shutter speed
0.000166666667svs 0.00025s (Nikon D3200)
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
5.Has a built-in HDR mode
Yesvs No (Nikon D3200)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
96.5mmvs 125mm (Nikon D3200)
7.Substantially more battery power
1050mAhvs 1030mAh (Nikon D3200)
8.Significantly less body volume
871.39cm³vs 918cm³ (Nikon D3200)
70mmvs 76.5mm (Nikon D3200)
10.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (Nikon D3200)
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
11.Has a built-in focus motor
Yesvs No (Nikon D3200)
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.
12.Has sensor shift stabilization
Yesvs No (Nikon D3200)
With sensor shift, the image sensor (rather than the lens) moves to counterbalance any vibration of the camera. This means the image will be stabilised regardless of what lens is being used.
13.Weather sealed
Yesvs No (Nikon D3200)
Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.
14.Supports AVCHD format
Yesvs No (Nikon D3200)
AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.
15.Vastly more viewfinder coverage
100%vs 95% (Nikon D3200)
With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.
