Great Camera For The Aspiring Professional Photographer!
I've had this camera for a little over a year and I can say hands down its one of the best cameras I have ever owned! I'm a self-employed videographer that recently entered the world of professional photography. Being on a small budget as an aspiring photographer, I find that this camera perfectly m...

How long do you think it takes for hardware improvements to become meaningful?
So far that's really the only thing that seems meaningfully better about mirrorless for what I shoot, but it's not so good that I'd take a step back in terms of ergonomics, AF performance, or FPS to get it. If I were a Canon or Sony shooter I might be looking into the R5 or A1, and on the Nikon side I'm waiting for the Z9 (though the improvements probably aren't enough to get me to fork out whatever they charge - I'll wait a few years for a used one or for features to trickle down).
Nice camera
I'm not going to get into the stats of this camera. There are many other reviews and websites that already have this information available. The Nikon D5200 is a nice camera. It has a swivel screen which is useful for video or weird camera angles. It has a lot of nice features, one of my favorites be...

I currently own a D5200 which is turning 9 this year. All in all this is a fantastic camera, and despite it's age, it still functions (mostly) like new. Lately I've been having some issues with SD card contacts occasionally giving me trouble, and this has gotten me thinking about upgrading. All of my Nikon gear is DX-mount oriented, which has me looking at the z50 and d7500.

Great camera for the price
This is simply a great camera. Low light is not a problem with this bit of kit, especially while using a F1.8 35mm prime. Even without a low f-stop, this camera performs very well in low light. Noise with ISO 1200 and below is almost non-existent except for black areas. Feature set is very nice and ...

Any suggestions for a camera?
They larger you print, the father away you usually have to step back to appreciate the image. Unless you want to extremely crop your images, a crop sensor might be sufficient, but for a much lower price tag. If it's for increased light sensitivity, up-to-date cameras usually offer enough dynamic range. After lots and lots of research, my wife and I both ended up buying Fujifilm X-T3s replacing our Nikon D90 and D5200 and we both are more than happy, even though I was heavily leaning towards a Nikon D800 first.

Great camera
I have used the heck out of this camera. I love the size, weight and functionality. I've been shooting with Nikons since the days of Nikormats. I really like the way this one feels in my hand when I'm shooting and it's a joy to use. I actually sold the first one of these I purchased and replaced it ...

A Big Step From My D40x
Let me preface this by saying I enthuse over still photography and am in no position to comment on video capabilities. That said... I owned an entry level D40x for about 7 years and was very pleased. So, was the D5200 purchase just the need for a new toy, or did I have specific reasons? Both. I cons...

Help choosing between Nikon D3500 and D7500
A friend of mine has had pictures taken on her used D5200 that have been put on billboards! The D3500 is amazingly capable, and probably better for learning IMO. The number of AF-points is a big difference. The 9 (or 11) on the D3500 will be quite limiting, but if you are trying to teach yourself / learn photography then that's I feel that's actually an advantage because it forces you to consider your pictures and actually take good pictures because you've actually got to compose your images, rather than just letting the amazing high end camera do all the work.
