Nikon’s ‘advanced beginner’ DSLR, the D5300 takes the D5200’s Place between the entry D3200 and also the enthusiast-targeted D7100 in the company’s APS-C lineup. The D5300 delivers a 24MP detector (like its 24MP APS-C stablemates), an articulated rear LCD, and much more physical controllers than the D3200, but minus the twin-dial interface and professional-grade AF system of this decidedly higher-market (and far more customizable) D7100.Nikon D5300 Black Friday Deals

Both visually and ergonomically the D5300 is a near-clone of its Predecessor (it is fractionally lighter and a tiny bit smaller), but under the hood it is a stronger camera in a couple of important ways. The D5300’s 24MP sensor lacks an anti-aliasing filter, which – consistent with all our experiences analyzing the D7100 and D800E – gives it the advantage concerning resolution over the D5200. The difference is subtle (especially using a kit zoom attached), however it’s always good to see improvements into critical image quality potential, especially within mid-range versions.
The D5300 also offers a beefed-up movie style, which is currently Capable of authentic 1080/60p HD video. This, and the slightly widened (3.2″ compared to 3″) fully-articulated 1.04 million-dot LCD screen, should mean that the D5300 will likely be attractive to videographers as well as stills photographers. Easy to overlook, but practical features incorporate built-in Wi-Fi and GPS – both firsts for Nikon’s DSLR lineup. Battery life receives a rise also: according to CIPA figures the D5300 offers an endurance of 600 shots, compared to 500 in the D5200. Bear in mind, however, that this figure does not take features like Wi-Fi or GPS into account, and using them will shorten the amount of time you can spend shooting.

The Nikon D5300 can easily be classified as an iterative update, Providing only a handful of features that weren’t found in its D5200 predecessor. It speaks volumes about the D5200 that adding just a few more matters amounts to an APS-C DSLR with 24 megapixels, no optical low pass filter, 1080/60p HD video recording, even a fully articulated display and built-in Wi-Fi. Concerning on-paper specifications, the D5300 looks’fully loaded’
The main feature we really wish it provided is a touchscreen LCD. We have begun to appreciate being able to execute certain actions by touch with rival cameras, particularly things like exposure compensation and AF point placement in live view fashion. We would also like to view dual controller dials – something Nikon has traditionally saved for the more expensive versions, but some of its competitors offer at this price point.
