Nikon D3200 announced.

Hot on the heels of the jaw-dropping 36MP D800, Nikon is continuing in their late entry to the megapixel war with the 24MP entry-level D3200.

Other than the new 24MP sensor there's not much new added except a higher resolution 912K dot screen and the ability to shoot 1080p video at 30fps instead of 24fps and a faster continuous shooting rate of 4fps.

The only other feature worth mentioning is the ability to add a Wi-Fi unit the WU-1a that will allow you to control the camera with an Android app (seriously Nikon, no iPhone support?). What I really want to know is why Nikon makes you buy an accessory for Wi-Fi on a DSLR when they put it it in their tiny compact cameras?

All in all it's a nice easy to use camera with a high megapixel count, which is sure to bring in a bunch of sales from people upgrading from compact cameras.

Also it comes in a cool candy-apple red option...
