D3200 : Crippled Manual mode & Live view
Aug 1, 2012

As much as I enjoy the new D3200 amazing IQ very much, some things bother me a lot :

  • Manual mode : basis Iso starts only at 200 in manual mode (need stronger ND filters for 2.8 video in regular light), all other modes start at 100 Iso.

  • Manual mode : NO manual shutter speed control bellow 1/30th in live view : how weird ?

  • Manual mode : NO aperture control in live view (need to shut LV off, change aperture and put it back on)

  • Finally, the same issue as other "amateur" bodies : when you select the timer delay (2 sec timer) you need to go back every time to set it on after 1 shot...

The lack of true manual control in live view is pretty awkward : WHY ???
