Full HD movie recording up to 60i is available, with 1920x1080 60i supported. When recording 60i, 80% of the central part of the readout is clipped from 1080 30p. There is a built in stereo microphone, as well as a microphone socket. Subject tracking AF and AF-F follows a moving subject in three dimensions, similar to the function found on a video camera.

Improved AF - as well as improved AF tracking in video mode, the camera has a 39 point AF module, advanced scene recognition, and 3D AF tracking.

Nikon D5200 Camera Reviews Roundup
|Digital Camera Review: "Nikon's D5200 sits in the middle of the most current triumvirate of Nikon cropped sensor DSLRs -- the D3200, 5200 and 7100. Its MSRP is $100 more than the D3200 but it offers an articulating 3 inch monitor, an extra frame per second in its high-speed continuous shooting mode and a more advanced autofocus system as recompense. The D5200 produces good still and video image quality, offers quite clean high ISO performa..." - May 18 2013 More »|

|PCMag: "We used Imatest to check the sharpness of that lens when paired with the D5200. The lens managed a very impressive 2,362 lines per picture height at 18mm f/3.5 using our center-weighted testing method, with edge sharpness hovering around 1,600 lines. We declare an image with an 1,800-line center-weighted score to be acceptably sharp. Stopping down to f/5.6 improves the overall score only marginally to 2,410 lines, b..." - May 04 2013 More »|
|TechRadar: "It's a bit disappointing that the Nikon D5200 doesn't introduce anything new to the Nikon feature set apart from the sensor, and it is a fairly predictable upgrade to the Nikon D5100 that borrows features from the Nikon D7000 above it in Nikon's DSLR lineup. It would have been nice if Nikon had added a few new special effects, perhaps a high-contrast black and white mode, and made these effects available when shooti..." - Mar 29 2013 More »|
