Nikon has expanded its 5000-series DSLR line with the D5300, and it features built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, along with a 24.2-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor.
The enhanced sensor delivers stills and HD videos with “heightened clarity and detail,” says the company, because of the removal of the Optical Low Pass Filter (OLPF).
ISO range is 100-12,800 and is expandable to ISO 25,600.
Expeed 4 image processing is at the heart of the camera, driving rapid response and swift performance while maximizing energy efficiency, reducing image noise and delivering true-to-life colours.
The D5300 features Nikon’s Scene Recognition System and 2,016-pixel RGB metering system to analyze and recognize the scene. Utilizing these systems results in automatic adjustments to exposure, autofocus (AF) and white balance.
Nikon’s 39-point AF system works with the Scene Recognition System to accurately acquire and track subjects throughout the frame.
While using the optical viewfinder or in Live View, the camera offers up to 5 frames per second (fps).
The D5300 is Nikon’s first HD-SLR to feature built-in Wi-Fi, allowing users to share high-quality photos instantly. The D5300 sends images to users’ smart device, allowing them to share their HD-SLR quality photos through email and social media immediately. The D5300 also includes built-in GPS, another first for Nikon HD-SLRs.
The camera weighs in at 480g.
), the Nikon D5300 can easily be packed for a day trip or a planned getaway. The small body of the D5300 provides photographers with the freedom to travel while still being easy to handle and comfortable to use. In addition to being able to capture amazing images anywhere, the D5300 is packed with additional features to promote creativity and versatility, including the following:
A 3.2-inch Vari-angle LCD monitor rotates.
Video is Full HD (1080p) at 60p with built-in stereo, wide ISO range and improved full-time AF.
The Nikon D5300 is scheduled to be available this month as a body only, or as a kit with the AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140 mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens. The body has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $849.95. It will be available in black, red and grey. The kit, in black, has an MSRP of $1,199.95.
