Nikon D5200 review

Nikon D5200 is a very good amateur camera from Nikon. Nikon D2013 is the best for spring 5200 Amateur Nikon DX Camera. This review presents only the camera itself Nikon D5200 body (no specific lens). Nikon D5200 is usually sold with a standard lens like this - Nikon 18-55mm f / 3.5-5.6G VR AF-S DX Nikkor, such a set is called 'whale'.

Nikon D5200 can be found in 3 different colors

Matrix

Nikon D5200 uses the new 24 MP sensor, which allows you to take pictures of 6000 * 4000 pixels (exactly 24 MP). D5200 and D7100most likely using the same sensor, details described here. I do not recommend paying much attention to the number of megapixels, you can read the reasons here here.

24MP sensor allows you to crop (cut out parts of the image) on a computer without a strong loss in quality

The 24-megapixel matrix allows you to crop (cut out parts of the image) on a computer without a strong loss in quality. The photo shows the crop (clipping) from the original image to get a larger bee in the photo.

It is important that Nikon D5200 can use photosensitivity values. ISO-100 6400. The range can be expanded to an ISO HI2 equivalent ISO 25.600... The 'bloated' ISO HI1 and HI2 modes in the camera are more for show than for practical use. You can set the ISO value in 1/3-stop increments, that is, you can set values ​​like ISO 320, 640, 2500, etc. The Nikon D5200 performs well in low light conditions. It is a pity that the ISO 6400 threshold in the new Nikon D5200 has not been raised.

A picture with automatic ISO control, the camera decided to shoot at a value of 110

Nikon D5200 works well in auto ISO mode - the camera can automatically select the maximum exposure for each individual lens. For example, for a lens with a 70mm focal length, the camera sets a limit excerpts for 1 \ 125 seconds (the average position of the slider when choosing a length excerpts in automatic mode). Auto value excerpts can be made shorter or longer, 5 steps are available. You can set the range of ISO values, for example, from 320 to 6400 units. It's nice that the maximum shutter speed for the Auto ISO function can be set from 1 second to 1/2000 second, this is important when using the telephoto lens. Also, in the automatic ISO sensitivity control mode, you can set the values ​​of Hi1, Hi2 as the maximum ISO value. Why Auto ISO function and how it works, you can read here. In general, the automatic ISO control is implemented very well, this allows you to get pictures without stirring without unnecessary troubles, for example, taking pictures with your hands. Note: as with many other Nikon cameras, ISO control is only available. in shooting modes P, A, S, M.

D5100 and D5200 are very similar to each other.

Focus, exposure metering

Finally, after a long period, a new Multi-CAM 4800DX focusing module from a more advanced model was installed in the amateur camera line Nikon D7000. The number of focus points is 39 pieces, 9 of which are cross-shaped. The same number of focus points Nikon D600. I advise you to read more about the difference in focusing systems. here, but about the focus setting - here. Before amateur level cameras Nikon D3000, D3100, D5000, D5100, D3200 had a focusing system with 11 points or worse, with 5 (Nikon D50) or 3 points (D40, D40x, D60) The Nikon D5200, with its 39 focus points, is a new breakthrough.

Focusing system can be used in a large number of modes:

  • You can choose either 39 focus points or the usual 11
  • You can turn on the electronic rangefinder, which will prompt in manual focus mode where to rotate the focus ring of the lens.
  • You can choose a bunch of different modes of the focus system, from focusing on a single point, to 3D tracking an object in the frame. All modes are illustrated with relevant examples, a beginner will not be able to get confused in the web of the menu :)
  • In Live View, you can choose from 4 types of focusing system: 1 - Face-priority AF, 2 - Wide-area AF, 3 - Normal-area AF, 4 - Subject-tracking AF.
  • You can select the priority of the focus mode for AF-C... In priority 'release' mode, the camera obediently takes pictures in any situation.

exposure measured with 2016-pixel RGB sensor. Since release Nikon D50 in 2005, Nikon used 8 years on its amateur cameras 420-segment metering, the new Nikon D5200 also made a breakthrough in this regard, taking Nikon amateur cameras to a new level. Auto focus is closely related to metering sensor exposure, the latter can recognize recorded scenes and improve auto focus. Exactly such a sensor is used by such advanced cameras as Nikon D600, D7100, D7000.

By the way, the camera uses as an optical viewfinder pentaser mirror with 95% field of view coverage and 0.78x magnification.

Photography Speed ​​Buffer

Nikon D5200 is Nikon's fastest amateur camera, it can shoot at the speed 5 frames per second. Performance Nikon D5200 almost like Nikon D3x... As many as 5 frames per second is a very good indicator. For example, nominal speed Nikon D7100 is 6 frames per second, and the predecessor Nikon D5100 could shoot at a speed of 4 frames per second. The camera has an Expeed 3 processor, the same as Nikon D7100, D600, D800, D800E and Nikon D4. It seemed very strange to me that an image processing system, like the flagship model, was installed in an amateur Nikon D5200 camera Nikon D4... Because of this, nothing 'slows down' in Nikon D5200, the camera reacts very well to all settings changes.

JPEG L Fine files weigh an average of 8 to 15 MB. RAW files weigh on average 30 Mb each. For large files, you should spend money on capacious memory cards. Nikon D5200 uses SD (HC, XC, UHS-I) memory cards. Nikon D5200 uses NEF (RAW) files with 14-bit color depth.

The buffer contains:

  • 3 JPEG pictures in L size, Fine quality with all advanced settings enabled. In fact, the camera takes 4-5 pictures until it starts to slow down.
  • 11 JPEG pictures in L size, Fine quality with all advanced settings turned off.
  • 7 shots in RAW with all advanced settings turned off.
  • only 2 pictures in RAW or RAW + JPEG with all advanced settings enabled.

7 shots in RAW is not enough, at 5 frames per second the buffer is enough for less than 2 seconds of continuous shooting. By the way, I noticed one interesting feature, when using lenses without a focus motor on the Nikon D5200, the 'Aut. distortion control 'does not work.

Display. Video.

Nikon D5200 has 3-inch swivel large display  and 921.000 points. The display is the same as Nikon D5100. You can view photos and videos via HDMI using a Type C HDMI cable. There is no cable in the box.

The camera supports video quality of 1920 x 1080 60i, H.264 / MPEG-4 is written in the '.MOV' file format. Attention: to shoot in 60i you need to set NTSC mode in the menu. I couldn’t find these same 60i for an hour, as in Pal mode only 50i is available.

If you don't need a bunch of heavy video files, you can take advantage of the lower image quality - 1280 x 720 or 640 x 424. You can choose high or normal video quality. Nikon D5200 already has built-in stereo microphone. In focus mode AF-F continuous tracking focus is available when shooting video... AF-F focus mode must be set using the 'I' button while Live View is on. The focusing work when shooting video is not happy - this is a common problem for SLR cameras. To shoot video, you need to turn on Live View using a special lever, and only then press the red button to start recording video. You cannot immediately start recording a video by pressing a single button.

Example photo on Nikon D5200

If you allow manual video settings, then in the manual camera control mode 'M', shooting video with manual control is available excerpts and ISO. Exposure can be set from 1 \ 60 (or 1 \ 30) to 1 \ 4000 seconds. When shooting video, you can immediately change the ISO value, it is very convenient to program the Fn button for ISO control for this. It is convenient to shoot video in manual mode with the Auto ISO function turned on.  Attention: during video recording, you cannot change the aperture value on which the video will be shot.

And now what very annoying when shooting 60i or 50i video. When you start shooting video, the camera does a light crop. For example, if you need to shoot a video using a 10 mm focal length lens, then there will be problems. The camera will simply turn on its crop mode. This is something similar to the 1.3 x y shooting mode Nikon D7100but it's not clear what kind of crop Nikon D5200 uses for 60i and 50i. They say it is used 1.25 x crop image. On the official website it is written about it casually or not at all. Deceiving people is not good :) In other modes, such as 1920 x 1080 30p, there is no such strange camera behavior.

Housing and management

The case is made of plastic. The camera is well-assembled, as you would expect. My copy of Nikon D5200 Made in Thailand. Due to the rotatable display, the camera does not have a button block to the left of the display, therefore the camera is more designed for controlling with one right hand. The D5200 display can be closed back and forth; in this position, it cannot be damaged during transportation. The camera menu is quite simple, there are tips everywhere. It will be easier for a beginner to understand the basic settings. I liked the INFO button menu, where excerpt and ISO are shown on the background of round control dials, as on old film cameras, while the discs are animated and rotate depending on exposure.

Externally, the Nikon D5200 camera is very similar to Nikon D5100. Nikon D5200 uses battery EN-EL14exactly the same as Nikon D3200, D5100 и D3100. Managing the camera is easy.

Sample photos:

Photos without processing. Photos taken in VI, PO, JPEG (L, Fine) mode. Reduced size to 3 MP and imprinted data from EXIF. Everything is filmed on Nikon 70-210mm и Nikon 18-70mm

Features and useful features

  1. Exposure varies from 30s to 1/4000 seconds
  2. The minimum flash sync speed is 1/200 s. No camera FP mode.
  3. Auto matrix cleaning function.
  4. In RGB view mode bar charts You can view the histogram for any selected image fragment. The same function Nikon D7100.
  5. Auto distortion control for most lenses. This means that the camera automatically removes vignetting and distortion.
  6. Function multiple exposures.
  7. You can program the function button FN on one of the heap of the proposed parameters. I usually program FN to control ISO sensitivity. Instead of ISO control, you can set HDR shooting.
  8. Active D-lighting (has 4 steps of intensity) and noise reduction function at high ISO and slow shutter speeds.
  9. There is even an interval shooting function.
  10. A bunch of presets for shooting. A good menu for processing photos taken.
  11. HDR with different levels, you can set Moderate, Normal, Amplified, Super Amplified and Auto level. The camera takes two pictures in a row and combines them into one. A very useful thing for landscapes. Shooting in HDR with your hands is very bad.
  12. Quiet shooting mode Q. In fact, not so quiet, you can’t remove the sound of the mirror.
  13. The camera has a mechanism for independent control of the mirror and aperture. This allows you to achieve a small shutter lag, the lag (the shutter lag after pressing the shutter button) is only 0.09 seconds. When shooting in Live View, the camera does not lower the mirror, just like Nikon D7100, D600, D800, D800E.
  14. The camera supports remote radio control using the WR-R10 / WR-T10 device. And you can buy a special GPS module GP-1, which will be recorded in EXIF coordinates of the place of shooting.
  15. The camera supports the WU-1a device, which allows you to transfer images using wi-fi to devices running iOS, Android, and also allows you to control the camera remotely using the same devices.
  16. The easiest way to remote control is with an infrared remote control ML-L3.
  17. On the Nikon D5200 body there is a button that is responsible for the shooting mode - you can choose frame-by-frame, continuous slow, continuous fast, self-timer, delay shutter, fast shutter and quiet shooting mode.
  18. Instead of a regular SD card, you can install a special Eye-Fi card that will transfer JPEG photos using wi-fi to a computer or other devices with wi-fi support.
  19. Can be used camera from the outlet using the EH-5b AC adapter with EP-5A connection.
  20. Auto release function. The self-timer can be set to a series of 9 shots. It is convenient to take self-portraits, especially with a group of people.

Since Nikon D5200 refers to the simplest level of SLR cameras Nikon, then it does not have many functions that are present in more advanced cameras:

  • There is no focus motor, which makes it difficult to use old-cheap lenses, such as Nikon 50mm f / 1.8D AF Nikkor.
  • No additional monochrome display
  • There is no button for previewing the depth of field, which is convenient to program for useful functions.
  • There is no second control dial that makes working with the camera easier. Such a disk is available in older models
  • No way to manage flashes remotely, the ability to work with old optics AI-S type
  • There is no way to use the battery pack
  • There is no fine-tuning of focus and a bunch of other little things. Usually all these little things are simply not needed by the amateur photographer, I bring them more to understand the general picture of what you can or cannot expect from the Nikon D5200.

Personal impressions

Brand new Nikon D5200 me liked, all in good style Nikon DX cameras. It’s a pity that with 60i, 50i people are a little fooled. I still use baby Nikon D40, since the availability of video shooting is not especially important for me, but photo quality depends not only on the camera... Usually, an amateur camera is bought for simple home photo tasks, for a seaside vacation or just for an amateur photo. For such tasks on camera, you don't need any super 'bells and whistles'. Therefore, I recommend buying older modelsuch as D5100, D3200 or D3100, and for the money saved, get a lens 18-105VR or 18-200VR... Of course, if funds allow, then D5200 - this is the best amateur camera for spring 2013 (when I wrote this review). You will find recommendations for choosing a camera and lenses here, optionally external flash will find here.

conclusions

Nikon D5200 is a very good amateur camera, perfect for people who just want a good photo result without any extra effort. On the positive side, I want to note 39-point focus systemquality video 60 with stereo sound recording, rotary display, compactness and ease of operation.

  • Christina

    Hello! Please tell me, on the d5200, instead of a whale lens, what do you advise to take? Need a wide-angle lens with a less beautiful picture. Pricing policy up to 40k. There is fifty dollars for portraits. Types of wedding filming. Thanks in advance!

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Sigma 17-50 / 2.8 OS, Tamron 17-50 / 2.8 VC, Tokina 12-28 / 4, Tokina 11-20 / 2.8, Tokina 14-20 / 2.0, Nikon 17-55 / 2.8, Nikon 16-80 / 2.8 -4 etc. What money is enough.

      • Christina

        Thank you, good man! And if you increase the budget to 60k, what do you recommend? The theme is the same, the wedding.

        • B. R. P.

          Let's wait another three months until your budget increases to at least 80k. For a wedding, the more expensive the better.

  • 123

    Hello, I bought a Nikon5200 with a TV set Nikkor 55-300 + 18-55 for photography. Approximately what settings to set on the camera. thanks

    • Onotole

      Depends on what to shoot, under what lighting and what result you want to achieve.

      • Anna

        Please tell me, which lenses are better to take for macro photography, portraits in height and landscapes on the Nikon d5100?

        • BB

          Landscapes - 18-105 will do a good job, of course there are better and more expensive optics, but this one is quite versatile.
          A full-length portrait - something like 35/2 (1.8) - look at prices and reviews, it could be Nikon, Yongnuo, or another brand, look at finance.
          Macro - if you shoot a lot - check out the reviews of macro lenses. If you need it not often and / or a little, even Soviet fixed optics with macro rings does a good job. I personally like Jupiter-37a with macro rings - it gives a rather large distance to the object, and because of this, geometric distortion is very small. Focusing is difficult and of course you need a good, heavy tripod. Also used Helios-44-2 and Helios-81n.
          Zoom lenses can also be used, but they have more distortion (geometric + chromatic) and lower resolution.

          In general, each of your points is a separate article. And all the answers are here, on Radozhiv. You should go to the 'Articles' section and read

  • D5200

    The manual mentions 128Gb memory cards as one of the recommended. And can the device use a larger capacity card, 256Gb, for the full capacity? What is the maximum volume?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      SDXC cards are supported, and therefore the maximum capacity is 2048 GB (2 TB)

    • Valery

      Hello! Happy New Year! I bought a used d5200, with low mileage, everything is ok, but there is one question that bothers me: in the viewfinder when focusing (M, A, S) I see the AF area frame and only one focus point, it’s not important to put in settings 9 or 11, or 21, or 39 focus points. And in the instructions in the figure there are 39 of them. Should I see them all 39 or one central ???. Is something wrong with the highlighting of the dots or is it the way it should be? When focusing in a car, a few are displayed, depending on the number of objects that fell into the viewfinder. The camera focuses, while clearly on all modes. Until I opened the instructions, there were no questions. Please consult.

      • Sergei

        That's right, this point, always except for the automatic mode, will be one, and depending on the number of focus points 9,11,39, where it can be located, the center point can be positioned (move arrows) left-right, up-down, in the viewfinder, for example, if nine points, then at 9 positions, if 39 then at 39, respectively. In the instructions, they simply draw peculiarly all positions simultaneously.

        • anonym

          Sergey, thank you for your attention and response.

  • Eugene

    Hello. Tell me which of these two d5200 or d90 will be better in terms of picture, autofocus. What will be less noise? I would like to take a not very expensive camera and a good fix lens for shooting close-ups. For everything about 30-35t.r

    • Pokemon

      D7000, D7100-7200, D5100, D5200-D5600 all have matrices more interesting than on the D90. If you look used, take a closer look at the D7000, as it now costs very little compared to the price at the start and there are a lot of cameras with low mileage on Avito.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      D5200 in the picture and, theoretically, in focusing will be better.

      • Eugene

        Thank you for your reply!

      • Sergei

        Thanks, very interesting articles! Tell me, for shooting video on a camera mounted on a tripod, from nikon d3xxx-5xxx series cameras so that a high-quality picture is what do you recommend? I understand that for a high-quality picture you need good stabilization and autofocus, like in 5200 this is the order, but a little higher comments a person writes that there is some kind of shake on the video ..

        • 1Ds_mk3

          Many bloggers use the Sony A7m3, Sony A6300, Sony A6500, Panasonic GH4, Panasonic GH5, Panasonic GH5s to shoot video on the camera.
          And plus all sorts of devices like Zhiyun Crane plus.
          Commercial videos haven’t been shot for a long time on Nikon. Canon abandoned.

      • EvAlex888

        Something I was not impressed with the D5200. Of all the pictures presented here, I liked the frames with the cat more. And in other cases, it seemed to me that there was a blur, or insufficient focus. What is better to choose in your opinion? D5200 or Canon 650D? In my opinion, the pictures are more interesting for the canon. Yes, and with the canon you can use any Soviet or Nikon optics. (Through adapters, of course)

        • Michael

          If you want (will) bother with the manual, then definitely Canon or BZK

  • Valery

      Treba smoke instructions

  • Valery

    "Smoked" with colleagues on the Internet and figured it out, Thanks for the advice!

  • Nicholas

    Bought Nikon D5200 with kit lens (18-55, but no VR). I tried filming. Disappointed. Shake ... Perhaps the mode or focus settings were incorrectly selected (manual seemed even better than automatic)? Or is it the lack of a stabilizer in this lens?

    • Novel

      Well, the stabilizer helps to some extent when shooting video, but if you are going to shoot with it, you need some kind of steadicom anyway. Or a tripod. Or rails. Well, or stabilization in the editor, if there is no desire to spend money on all this with such a mediocre result.

      A good video costs a lot of money.

      • Nicholas

        And in which mode is it better to shoot and with what focus settings?

  • ale

    good day. Tell me which one is better to choose a Nikon D5200 or D5300 camera, the goal of the choice to start photo activities.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      D5300 is better, here is a rating plate https://radojuva.com/2013/01/what-camera-nikon-shoud-i-buy/

    • Novel

      You can play with anyone, at least d5100 which is cheaper and better in color.
      But you need to clearly understand that DSLRs are leaving the masses from the market.
      If you want to get good pictures with minimal effort, then it is better to buy a mirrorless camera, there is powerful camera stabilization for you, and it is easier to set the exposure, and focus on the eyes, and there are no pops / smudges from the mirror, there is no muddy pentamirror, there are no problems with alignment lenses / carcasses.

  • Sergei

    Arkady, in the d7100 review do you write that they have the same sensor? From here they wrote that there are different sensors. And does the low-pass filter stand on the matrix of the D5200? Thanks.

    • Novel

      The D7100 and d5200 have the same Toshiba production sensor and have identical banding and shadow noise problems.
      The problem is hardware, resolved in the next revision of the sensor in the d7200.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Fixed

    • Valery A.

      The filter is there, the 5300 does not.

  • Dmitriy

    Does the d5200 af-p support lenses?

    • Denis

      Yes

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Yes, it does. Exact list of compatible cameras here.

  • Dmitriy

    Can I set the d2x Mode profile in the d5200?

  • Basil

    Hello!
    Please tell me which lens is better to use for shooting architectural structures (Peter) in the amateur range.
    Thank you.

    • us6ibd

      For portraits and creative photos you need fast lenses that will allow you to get a shallow depth of field.
      And for landscape and architecture whale 18-55 is quite suitable.

    • Roman

      If you have a crop, then architecture usually needs something wider than 18-55. 18 is the kick and end of the range. The ideal option is 10-24, from ultra-wide to moderately wide, you can get closer and further away. At worst, 18-55 will do, of course, but that is.

      For a full frame, respectively, 16-35, 17-40, 20-35 (as a budget option can be found).

      Vasily look at these lenses:
      Tokina AT-X Pro SD 12-28 F4 (IF) DX Aspherical (Model 128)
      Tokina AT-X PRO SD 11-20 F2.8 (IF) DX
      Arkady has reviews on them and he seems pleased with them.

      • Michael

        not very amateur range

  • Ledogor

    Well, it’s immediately obvious that the person is already happy for the New Year)))

  • Anton

    Good afternoon!
    Tell me with the choice of device.
    Tasks:
    - shooting nature, family (and then how it goes)
    There was never a mirror, but it’s very interesting to shoot.
    Budget 10 000 rub
    There are several used options in this budget:
    Nikon D3100 - can be bought for 6000r with 3000 mileage
    Nikon D3200 with 7000 mileage
    Nikon D5200 with mileage of 5000
    Nikon D90 with 7000 mileage
    Lenses on all 18-55
    Which of these at approximately the same cost is better to take?
    Thank you!

    • Pokemon

      Obviously d5200

    • Valery A.

      Hello. I would prefer d5200 (and cheaper and more angry - 5100), d90 - if you are ready for the sake of some comfort in shooting (larger and lighter OVI, the ability to switch-control parameters with buttons on the carcass, and not climb the menu) to carry a larger and heavy object.

      • Anton

        Tell me, will the photo quality of the D90 be worse than the D5100?
        Carrying a heavier item is not a problem.

        • Michael

          In general, worse, especially when shooting in jpeg. 5xxx simpler for lovers

        • Valery A.

          I have not used the d90, I think that it is no better than the d5100 - the matrix is ​​older. Although whether this will be noticeable to the eye of an inexperienced person is not a fact. So don't get too hung up on that. But the presence of a motor for autofocusing with non-motorized lenses will allow the use of cheaper “screwdriver” lenses, such as the AF50 / 1,8D or 85 / 1,8D. Well, that's if you start to get involved. You can meet with sellers - feel this and that.

        • BB

          In general, the picture is similar, but the D90 more turns up the shadows in blue, and the noise starts about a third of the stage earlier.

          • Anton

            Will it be decisive when choosing?
            Those. better to take 5200?

            • Valery A.

              Well, if d90 buns are not interested. (Did you look at the photo here in the d90 review? Arkady places them without the editors.) Any camera can give color errors, anyway you need to notice this and edit it in the editors. You can take a lightweight amateur 5200. This will not affect the beautifulness of the pictures, because the technique is about the same level.

  • Tatyana

    Good morning. Tell me please. My camera stopped working.

    • B. R. P.

      Read more.

    • US6IBD

      You understand that it is impossible to help repair remotely, but there are user errors that lead to situations that are perceived as a device breakdown.
      For a start:
      Sometimes the setting of the “minimum aperture” on the lens gets lost. At the same time, the device gives an error and is blocked.
      Describe the situation more specifically.

      • Ivan

        And sometimes the battery runs out ...

  • Sergei

    Hello. Arkady, thank you very much for the material. I read, study, delve a lot.
    I want to take photographs. I understand that the quality of the photo depends more on my hands, but still. Please advise to make a choice. Nikon d5200 or Canon 650d? Which system to choose and which lenses to work with?

    • Alexander

      "What lenses to work with?" - what a question! Who will know this better than you? Everyone has their own lenses. One shoots everything with fish, the other with a telephoto camera, the third is enough trevezuma for everything.

    • Trueash

      I do not know if it is still relevant, but which camera to take is not important. In the same class / price category, they are all equivalent:

  • Anna

    People, how long do they run? There is a good option to buy such a copy with a range of 113k for an inexpensive price. The price captivates, but I'm afraid that I wouldn't have to change the shutter as a guaranteed 100 k. Or buy 5100 for the same price with a much lower mileage up to 50 k

    • KalekseyG

      At 10000, two fatty hot pixels appeared, sold. I wanted to take the same one, looked at two, also stars in a bright sky, but in different places.

      • Ivan

        Light pixels? Easy to clean with a service program. In vain they sold.

      • Oleg

        2 hot pixels on a 24 million pixel sensor made the sale? ..

      • Alexey

        oddly. I had a whole starry sky of hot pixels on my 5DMkII when shooting at night. and I didn't give a damn about it, because at night I didn't shoot at all. and kokhda friends, whom he gave to drive the camera, began to complain about it, just launched the service program and made a remap. and everything got up blahgily))

      • KalekseyG

        I like people who do not understand and do not read, besides. Insert two stars in all daytime shots into the frame. And I sold the sprinkled matrix along with the carcass. Considering yourself smarter than others is good when you have your mouth shut.

        • Ivan

          What? Do you read the answers yourself?

    • B. R. P.

      I have already run off two "terms", there are no "guaranteed" ones.
