A 5-Part Review of the Nikon D5200
The Nikon D5200

Mirrorless cameras are making the waves nowadays. So this leads us to the question: does a DSLR still hold its weight in the evolving world of photography? 


Let me introduce you to this beautiful Nikon D5200 purchased brand new back in August of 2015. After weeks of research and considering many factors, I concluded that Nikon would be the best system to invest in. (Full specs at

A review of Nikon D5200.

Nikon DSLRs are compatible with older Nikkor lenses. These vintage all-metal battle tank Nikkor lenses are made to last forever with their tough build, I'm afraid the floor tiles might crack and the lens unscathed if I dropped any one of these by accident.

If I would focus purely on photography, then I would have bought the D3200. This D5200 is more than able for my blogging/vlogging needs owning to its awesome features like the swivel screen which you could tilt for awkward positions.

For example, I found this beautiful flowerbed and the only way I could take this shot was to place the camera above it. It would be impossible to use the viewfinder since I don't have a stool or platform. Can you imagine seeing me in this situation?

The kit lens is a Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5 - f/5.6 VR2. Don't underestimate this lens because it's tack sharp, can focus as near as 3 inches from the subject, handles flare very well with its coating, and feels sturdy despite being made of polycarbonate material.

For some, an APS-C crop sensor could be a disadvantage, but for the sake of price, this is a good compromise. One advantage for me is that focal length is multiplied therefore extending their range. A 100mm lens used on DX (Nikon's group of cameras with crop sensor) is equivalent to 150mm on an FX (Nikon's group of cameras with full frame sensor). APS-C also helps to make awesome macro photos since they are cropped images.

The Nikon D5200 is a good choice for photography and video. I've used it for events, for making product features and videos, street photography, flower photography, selfies, etc... it just never disappointed me.

Now that we've made a conclusion, I would also like to express my sincere interest to venture into scientific photography someday and in film photography in the coming weeks. For those who keep telling me to give up my passion or that I'm wasting time and money... I just want you to know that I will keep on improving my art. Thank you.

There's no such thing as a hobby na walang kuwenta.

Walang kuwenta lang ang hobby na pinasukan mo
if you're gonna do it half hearted.

Dapat pinaglalaban mo ito.

No such thing as hindi alam.
No such thing as hindi kaya.
No such thing as hindi maganda.

As long as you're passionate about something,
you will keep on doing it.

Just Do It.
