About the Nikon D5300

The Nikon D5300 is the first APS sensor Nikon DSLR to offer full Wi-Fi communication ability, giving users the option of sharing images online directly from their camera, or to operate the camera remotely using a free app on their smart phones or tablet computers. As with its predecessor, the Nikon D5300 comes with the superb 24MP DX sensor, which can also be found in the higher-end D7100. Also new is an extra-large 3.2-inch swivel LCD monitor, The D5300 accepts all Nikon F-mount lenses, but is best suited for use with DX lenses, and works seamlessly with the Nikon i-TTL flash system using Speedlights such as the SB-910; flash exposure is seamlessly calculated using the cameras matrix and center-weighted metering system.

The Nikon D5300 is designed for photo enthusiasts, photography students looking for a full-featured camera to grow with, first-time DSLR users who aren't intimidated by extensive control options, and habitual online photo sharers who want much better than cell phone image quality.

Wi-Fi and beyond

Nikon is hinting that there will be more DSLRs with built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, but right now the D5300 is the first and only that will wirelessly connect to D5300 with your smartphone or tablet,* then browse the photos on D5300's memory card, import your favorites and instantly email them, text them or post them online. While connected, your smart device can also act as a remote monitor for the D5300. See what the camera sees and even fire the shutter-perfect for group shots and self portraits! When travelling, built-in GPS geotags all of your shots. Create exciting travel journals, find nearby Points of Interest and easily share your location data when posting photos on Facebook or Flickr.

Sophisticated AF and Metering

The D5300 has 39 point high-density autofocus system with 9 cross-type sensors. Nikon has 3D tracking that uses the 2016-pixel RGB sensor, so it can recognize a moving subject and follow it and keep it in focus as it moves across the frame. Nikon's Scene Recognition System analyzes each shooting situation and compares it to an onboard database of thousands of scenes and automatically determines the best exposure. If using flash, it calculates and balances flash and ambient light exposure, as well as white balance and autofocus settings.

For more experienced photographers, the camera puts manual exposure, focus, flash and white balance settings within easy reach. You can manually set one, a few, or all of the above. It's your choice. Built-in HDR combines two photos into one image, expanding the dynamic range. D-lighting is another well-known Nikon feature that automatically brightens shadowy areas in images.

The Nikon D5300 also offers the ability to edit photos in camera. Options include cropping, applying filters and effects. And, since the camera has Wi-Fi connectivity, you can immediately share the edited photos via your smartphone or tablet computer.
