Our opinion on the Nikon D5300
This bet of the brand is undoubtedly a solution to many of the needs of its other versions. It is not a machine for beginners as its advanced functions need to be executed by an amateur with some experience or a professional photographer. The Nikon D5300 is a cheap camera? Its price is conditioned by the features it incorporates such as Wifi Internet connectivity, or its Full HD video quality for example.
Maximum power with 24.2 megapixels: Specifically designed without any optical low pass filter (OLPF), the D5300's image sensor takes full advantage of its 24.2 megapixel resolution to capture even the most subtle textures with definition and generate images with incredibly sharp details.
39-point AF system: With 39 points of focus, including nine cross sensors in the center, the D5300's autofocus system is incredibly accurate. Advanced 3D subject tracking keeps the focus on even the smallest subjects, no matter how unpredictable their movements may be.
5 fps Continuous Shooting Function: Record the action at a high speed of five frames per second and capture fleeting movements or expressions at just the right time.
2016-pixel RGB metering sensor: The D5300's incredibly accurate metering sensor achieves accurate exposures and sends data to the Scene Recognition System, which optimizes auto exposure, autofocus and auto white balance for superior results.
Large, high-resolution LCD: View all the details of your photos and videos with the large 8.1 cm (3.2 inch) LCD with wide-angle viewing angle and high resolution of 1,037,000 dots. Compose or review shots and apply special effects clearly whether you're shooting indoors or outdoors.
HDMI output: Connect the camera directly to an HDTV screen and enjoy videos and photos in extraordinary high definition. Compatible with HDMI-CEC (Consumer Electronics Control), the camera even lets you control playback via the TV remote control.
High-quality audio: Record videos that not only look good but also sound great. Thanks to the camera's built-in stereo microphone and compatibility with Nikon's external ME-1 Stereo Microphone, it's easy to capture the footage in clear, crisp sound.
Effects Mode: Create unmistakable photos and videos using a wide range of special effects. Isolate colors to make them stand out, turn images black and white, explore the retro effect, or make buildings look like miniature models to scale. You can preview the effect you've chosen and adjust the intensity as you shoot.
16 scene modes: Quickly capture perfect shots with a series of scene modes, such as Sports and Beach/Snow. Simply select the mode that best fits the subject or situation being photographed and the camera will automatically improve shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, and aperture aperture for superior quality results.
Optimal details in high-contrast conditions: The two modes help you capture details in both dark and bright areas when capturing images in bright or backlit conditions. HDR (high dynamic range) is ideal for static subjects and active D-Lighting is ideal for photos with moving subjects. Both modes allow you to select the level of intensity.
Intelligent design: The large LCD screen and small, light body of the D5300 make it a pleasure to record with this camera. Nikon's superior ergonomics, clear menus and one-touch buttons for the most frequently used functions, such as D-Movie and Live view, make operation fast and intuitive.
NIKKOR lenses: Take advantage of Nikon's legendary NIKKOR lenses and take full advantage of the camera's 24.2 megapixel resolution. Capture photos with vivid colors and stunning contrast. Shoot videos with sharp details or experiment with cinematic effects.
