Nikon D5300

24.1MP DX format CMOS sensor

Meet the Wi-Fi® enabled, ultra-high-resolution Nikon HD-SLRs: the D5300. With built-in Wi-Fi for photo sharing to your smartphone or tablet, GPS and mapping, a cutting edge 24.2-megapixel image sensor, an extra-large swiveling Vari-angle LCD and more, D5300 brings an outstanding new level of image quality and capabilities in a compact, ergonomic design. Pair it with any NIKKOR lens—like the outstanding AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR kit lens—and unleash the full potential of its innovative image sensor. Your photos will be richer, truer to life than most photos you’ve seen. HD video will have a stunning cinematic look, a level of sharpness and clarity that ignites on ultra-high-resolution tablets, laptops and TVs. And the first time you use your smartphone or tablet to instantly share photos from the D5300, you’ll realize the game has truly changed.

The sharpness, clarity and richness of colours in the D5300’s photos and Full HD videos is nothing short of astounding. Design innovation allows the D5300’s 24.2-megapixel DX format CMOS image sensor* to capture the purest, most lifelike images possible. Enlarge or crop your photos without losing any sharpness or detail—a feat not possible with most smartphones and lesser cameras.

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!  Also D5300’s extra-large ultra-high resolution Vari-angle LCD swivels 180° so you can shoot from exciting new angles. Hold the camera overhead for great shots over a crowd. Hold the camera down low for a fun face-to-face perspective of your pet. And create some of your best selfies yet—frame a stunning new profile pic, then upload it right to web, thanks to Wi-Fi connectivity! When traveling, 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.

Don’t let the small size of the D5300 fool you—it delivers big-camera quality and capabilities. Like all Nikon D-SLRs, the D5300 was designed for ergonomics—every button and dial was carefully placed for comfortable, efficient operation.

Bring all the image quality the D5300 produces—softly blurred backgrounds, tack-sharp details, vibrant colours—to dazzling 1080p Full HD videos. In Live View, Nikon’s full-time autofocus follows your subject and keeps it sharp. A built-in stereo microphone adds high-fidelity sound to your videos, or you can add Nikon’s optional accessory ME-1 stereo microphone (sold separately) for the highest quality sound possible.

Even if you’re new to D-SLR photography, getting great results in difficult situations couldn’t be easier—just select from 16 common Scene Modes for your situation, or let the camera pick for you.
