The Nikon D3200 adds an Expeed 3 image processor to achieve 4 frames per second and a vivid 920,000 3 inch high-resolution LCD is fixed to the rear. An 11 point autofocus system with a ISO range from 100 – 6400, expandable to 12,800 gives you the versatility to grab those extremely low lighting shots.
