Nikon's $700 D3200 kit now available at Best Buy
As promised, Nikon's latest D3200 DSLR camera is now shipping over at Best Buy in black, with the red version still listed as coming soon. The $700 bundle includes an 18-55 kit lens and the $60 WU-1a wireless adapter isn't yet available, but Best Buy does allow customers to pre-order it. The accessory will let users send photos wirelessly to their smartphones or tablets on the go.
The required app will be out for Android devices sometime in May, while iOS users will need to wait until the fall. The D3200 is the successor to the company's D3100 DSLR, and ups the resolution dramatically, from 14 to 24 megapixels, while adding a unique Wi-Fi component. Adding a WU-1a wireless adapter will let users share photos directly to a nearby smartphone, letting photographers post online and even preview or control the camera remotely.
