========================================

Venturing into the world of DSLR is one of the best decisions I made in my life. There are so many creative effects I could play such as beautiful bokeh, the use of manual focus, interchangeable lenses (think about the beautiful vintage ones!), filters, and videos.




It took weeks of thorough research before coming up with the best system for my need as a blogger and hobbyist photographer -- the Nikon D5200, which retails at P28,000 brand new (as of August 2015). I took these factors into consideration:

  1. Would I invest on more bodies or more lenses? (Answer: LENSES!!!)
  2. If I were to get a DSLR, which system/brand would allow me to have more selection of lenses, preferably vintage? (I choose you... NIKON!)
  3. What can be good for selfies, and video/vlogging? (D5200 is a good candidate.)
  4. Do I really need that much pixels? (Yes, the difference is clear when editing.)
  5. Nikon D3200 or D5200?
  6. I'm lusting for vintage lenses. If I get whichever brand, what lenses would be available and what are their prices?
  7. How many years would a set last before I need to repair it?
  8. What are the costs of maintenance?
  9. Full frame vs. APS-C sensor?
  10. DSLR, Film SLR or Mirrorless?
  11. How often would I be using the camera? (Obviously, there's no point of buying an expensive brand new set if it would be only used once a year, right?)

The Nikon D5200 is an old model from 2012 but it's still relevant today so those who are on a shoestring budget will really love these features:

Input for external microphone
Swivel screen, which is perfect for vlogging and selfies
It's not full-frame, but the price is just within my budget
39 Auto Focus points (errr, I'm using manual focus 99% of the time now)
60 fps while recording movies at 1920x1080i resolution
ISO up to 25600 with Auto ISO Mode
