Nikon D3200 vs Nikon D3000: What to buy/upgrade?

So what is the difference between these two cameras. Both are entry level models with a couple of years a part and you might be the owner of the older version and want to know if the new model is an upgrade option.

Here is what makes the Nikon D3200 better:

  • You get a much improved sensor with 24 megapixel, where the sensor in the Nikon D3000 only is 10 megapixel. The sensor improves the output of your images greatly
  • You get a 4 frames per second vs 3 frames per second in the Nikon D3000. This is a nice increase for those that shoot action or wildlife
  • You get a self-timer with a little more options, where it can take more than one picture. A nice feature
  • You get to push the ISO to 12800 which is two stops. This means that you will be able to take pictures in dark situations without flash
  • You get movie options for you to use the camera as a video camera
Here is what you will miss going forward to the Nikon D3000:
  • ├Łou image files will become larger, but you can choose in the camera just to save in smaller sizes
The Nikon D3200 is a great upgrade for you as a Nikon D3000 owner, where you get a camera that produces a lot better pictures and you get the video options as the two main differences. If you don't own any of those two you only choice should be the Nikon D3200. It is by far the much better camera.
