24.1 effective megapixels with NIKKOR lenses: stunningly sharp, detailed images
The camera’s newly developed Nikon DX-format CMOS image sensor
has a resolution of 24.1 effective megapixels and delivers images
with smooth, natural tones and sharp, incredibly subtle details.
Despite the D5200’s ultra-high resolution, the image sensor has
been designed to maintain the integrity of every image,
preserving detail in both shadows and highlights, even when you
shoot images under high-contrast lighting.
