The Nikon D5300 offers brilliant image quality with crisp detail. The enhanced 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor delivers stunning images and HD videos due to the removal of the Optical Low Pass Filter (OLPF). The Nikon D5300 combines performance with easy and intuitive features, to help users capture photos confidently.
For clean, sharp details in even the most challenging lighting conditions – including night games and dimly lit restaurants – the Nikon D5300 covers a wide ISO range of 100-12,800 and is expandable to ISO 25,600.
Nikon’s newest image processing engine drives the rapid response and swift performance of the Nikon D5300 while maximizing energy efficiency, reducing image noise and delivering true-to-life colours.
To further help users capture the image they intend, the Nikon D5300 features Nikon’s Scene Recognition System and 2,016-pixel RGB metering system to analyze and recognize the scene. Utilizing these systems results in automatic adjustments to exposure, autofocus (AF) and white balance to deliver the best photo possible, whether it’s a landscape or portrait.
Nikon’s quick and precise 39-point AF system works with the Scene Recognition System to accurately acquire and track subjects throughout the frame, resulting in tack-sharp images. Active kids that are too busy to pose for a photo or pets chasing after a toy are easily captured in brilliant sharpness for memorable photos.
While using the optical viewfinder or in Live View, take advantage of the D5300’s ability to shoot at 5 frames per second (fps) to capture great moments that would have otherwise been missed.
The Nikon D5300 is Nikon’s first HD-SLR to feature built-in Wi-Fi, allowing users to share high-quality photos instantly. The D5300 sends images to your phone or tablet, allowing you to share through email, social media or whatever else you can think of.
That means friends and family can now see your favourite moments as soon as they happen. The D5300 also includes built-in GPS, another first for Nikon HD-SLRs. You can also tag pictures and let people know where life takes you.
$849.95 for body-only
$1199.95 for the 18-140mm VR kit
$1799.95 for the new AF-S 58/1.4 G lens
The Nikon D5300 is expected to be available at Vistek stores in late October. Keep your eyes on this blog for purchase links and further details.
