Nikon D5300

The Nikon D5300 is an update to the Nikon D5200. This entry-level DSLR camera comes with a DX-format 24.2 megapixel sensor with no optical low-pass filter and with the EXPEED4 image processor, that work together to produce high-resolution still imagery with notable color accuracy and details. The omission of the optical low-pass filter allow to gain the utmost sharpness and resolution. The sensor and image processor also allow D5300 to obtain a notable low-light sensitivity to ISO 12800 and to record full HD 1920x1080p movies at 60, 30, 25 or 24 fps frame rates in the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format.

The Nikon D5300 benefits from a versatile AF autofocus system with a 39 distinct AF points and nine cross-type sensors, to quickly acquire focus in a range of lighting conditions. The Dynamic-area AF mode is present on this camera and allows to choose from 9, 21 or 39-point arrays. 3D-tracking, Auto-area AF and Single-point AF modes are also available on the Nikon D5300. Among other feathures, the D5300 adds to its predecessor integrated Wi-Fi and GPS modules to enable geotagging functionality and continuous transferring of imagery to an Android or iOS device, via Nikon Wireless Mobile Utility app.

The Nikon D5300 has a compact and durable body, that integrates a 3.2″ 1037k-dot vari-angle LCD monitor and a built-in pop-up flash, which supports Nikon’s i-TTL flash metering system.

The Nikon D5300 is available in three colours: black, grey and red.
