D5200 -Is my camera breaking?

I was shooting single shots of my daughter today and one of the shots looked like this. Any idea what happened?

As said above, it's difficult to tell.  Empty your card onto your computer and format it in the camera, and then hope for the best.  If it happens again try a second memory card.  If it then persists, it's the camera, if it doesn't, then it's that original card.

Best of luck

Some rules I find useful are:

1. Never format card except in camera.

2. Never let someone not familiar with the camera "play" with it.

3. Never touch the contact points on card, battery, or camera.

4. When a problem such as yours happens, remove lens and reattach. Be sure to not touch contact points except to clean them.

5. Do not set camera down in direct sunlight for an extended period of time.

6. Do not aim lens directly at the sun for a photograph.

7. Keep away from extreme cold. Your manual will indicate acceptable temperatures.

8. Do not remove card except to transfer photos and reformat card. Yes people do this all the time, and people sometimes pay for this.

You probably know all this stuff but it never hurts to have a review.

Could it be you pressed playback before the card had the whole photo?

Had kind of the same thing happen to me.  It turned out that the card reader had gone bad.  Might try another download of the same photo with a different card reader.

This is very possible. I was pressing the shutter quite a bit to try and time a photo. I may have then pressed the playback button as it was buffering. I hope that was the problem. Thanks for everyone's replies!

I know exactly what it is...  Its the mother ship trying to beam her up!  Your D5200 works fine and saved her it caused interference in the beaming!  I would suggest tin foil hats
