Nikon_D5200-back.jpg
The fold-out 3-inch TFT LCD screen has a resolution of roughly 921,000 dots and a 170° viewing angle. The screen folds out on the hinge at left, and rotates a full 270º, allowing you to aim it 90º downward for overhead shots and rotate it forward-facing for self portraits.


Nikon_D5200-back-angle-LCDout.jpgThe hinged and swiveling screen allows for a lot of flexibility in getting creative angles. As is evident in this shot, the rotation also allows you to fold it up against the body in order to protect it.


Nikon_D5200-front-LCDout.jpgAiming the LCD toward the lens barrel, and using Live View mode, allows you to frame and take photos with you in it. This would be made even easier with the optional wireless remote control.

Nikon_D5200-ports.jpg
Behind a rubberized flap sits the D5200's four ports. Clockwise from top left: stereo mic input, USB/AV output, HDMI, and GPS (optional unit available). If you choose to get a wireless mobile adapter for communicating with smart devices, it connects to the USB port.


Nikon_D5200-SDcard-slot.jpgThe memory card slot sits behind a plastic door that springs open after being slid back. The camera accepts SD and UHS-I compliant SDHC and SDXC memory cards.


Nikon_D5200-battery.jpgThe D5200 comes with a rechargeable Li-ion battery with a CIPA rating of approximately 500 shots. Similarly, in my testing, I captured 483 still images (45 of which were RAW format) and 13 short videos at 1080p. Most of these shots had been taken in single-frame release mode. In addition, Nikon says that in continuous release mode the battery will last approximately 1700 shots.

You also can get an optional AC adapter and power connector.
