Image quality, connectivity and creative control come together in this lightweight, full-featured DX-format DSLR. The new EXPEED 4 is our fastest image processor to date and complements the 24.2-megapixel CMOS. With its 39-point autofocus, improved white balance and wide sensitivity range, the D5300 lets you shoot stunning photos and Full HD movies. It’s our first DSLR to feature a built-in Wi-Fi®, so you can instantly transfer your photos*. Its GPS function saves location information to your images. A crystal-clear 3.2-inch LCD vari-angle monitor lets you shoot at any angle. With so many innovative features, the D5300 adds new dimensions to photography.
SUPERB IMAGE QUALITY THROUGH CUTTING-EDGE INNOVATIONS :
Featuring enhanced quality and speed, the EXPEED 4 image processor is the perfect companion to the 24.2-megapixel DX-format CMOS. Capture full-resolution 12-bit RAW images at up to 5 frames per second. An improved white balance ensures brilliant whites, greater colour nuances, smooth gradations and sharp edges.
ENJOY GREATER RESOLUTION IN ANY LIGHT :
The D5300 is designed without an optical low-pass filter (OLPF), allowing the high resolution CMOS sensor to record the smallest details with precision. Its wide sensitivity range of ISO100 – ISO12800 at normal setting delivers impressive noise reduction and is expandable to 25600 for extreme low-light situations.
DEFINE EVERY DETAIL WITH ITS 39-POINT AUTOFOCUS :
For optimal sharpness, the D5300’s accurate 39-point autofocus quickly locks on to and track subjects. Its 3D Tracking mode seamlessly maintains focus even when your subject is moving towards or away from the camera – ideal for videos and sports photography. Choose from a variety of autofocus-area focus modes, including Wide-Area AF, Face Priority AF and Subject Tracking AF to match your shooting styles.
SHARING MADE EASY - OUR FIRST DSLR WITH BUILT-IN WI-FI® :
Share precious moments the instant you snap them. Simply transfer shots to your computer or mobile device with the D5300’s built-in Wi-Fi®*, a first among Nikon DSLRs. A free Wireless Mobile Utility app lets you remotely control the camera with your mobile device.
LOG YOUR TRAVELS WITH ITS BUILT-IN GPS FUNCTION :
When travelling, record GPS and altitude information to your images so you can relive your adventures with ease and convenience. A travel log function automatically maps your journey (with location points recorded at 15, 30 or 60-second intervals) even when the camera is off.
