Nikon D3200 w/ 24MP Sensor Coming in April?

Nikon D3100

Looks like the trusty little D3100 may be up for replacement soon, with plenty more megapixels to boot.

If Nikon Rumors is right about the D3200, the entry-level DSLR will sport a 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor (most likely the same one we see in the Sony A77 and NEX-7).  Other rumored specs are below.

Nikon D3200 Specs

  • 24 MP sensor
  • 11 AF points
  • 4 fps
  • ISO 100-6400 (expandable to ISO 12800)
  • Improved video functionality

The Nikon D3100 is a great little camera.  I’ll be interested to see what Nikon does with the processing for Sony’s 24MP sensor.

      I agree. It sounds wonderful. DX lenses already owned could be used on it. It will be small and light and easy to carry around and the price should not be too bad with good resolution for making big prints or cropping or submission to libraries. I just hope that the pictures it takes match up in quality to cameras higher up the range.
      However, I am somewhat off Nikon at the moment for its sudden disgraceful and swinging price increase for the D4 and D800 in the UK.

    Hello all! Newbie to photography – what are your opinions on what this will do to the price point of the D3100 and D5100? Is it likely that they’ll both drop or one or the other? Cheers!

    Hi! I was wondering if anyone who knows about Nikon? Can help me I own a D3S, and was waiting for Nikon to come out with another model which will replace it? I enjoy my D3S very much and was hoping that they might increase the 12.1 to maybe 24 mp since its a full format camera.
