Love the wifi and the geotag options- the moveable screen allows for alternative shots! Very easy to use and very good image quality also pretty lightweight. Buying the body only allowed me to custom my lens choice to get the best out of the camera

24.2-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor
Even the finest details are captured with stunning sharpness. Specifically designed without an optical low-pass filter (OLPF), the D5300’s image sensor makes the most of its 24.2-megapixel resolution to sharply capture even the finest textures and render images with incredibly crisp detail.

Compose or review shots and apply special effects with clarity whether you’re shooting indoors or out.

Great in low-light
High ISO (100–12,800, extendable to 25,600 equivalent). Take advantage of great low-light performance to shoot detailed images in dark situations and capture clear shots of fast-moving subjects.

EXPEED 4 Processor
Enjoy high-speed operation and remarkably clear images with excellent colour reproduction, plus enhanced movie recording, thanks to Nikon’s fast and powerful image processing engine.

39-point AF system
With 39 focus points, including nine cross-type sensors in the center, the D5300’s autofocus system is incredibly accurate. Advanced 3D subject tracking maintains focus on even the smallest subjects, however unpredictable their movements may be.

2,016 pixel RGB metering sensor
The D5300’s incredibly accurate metering sensor delivers exact exposures and sends data to the Scene Recognition System, which optimises auto exposure, autofocus, and auto white balance for superior results.

5 fps continuous shooting
Shoot action at a swift five frames-per-second and capture fleeting movements or expressions at exactly the right moment.

D-Movies with high quality audio
Record smooth, finely detailed Full HD video clips you’ll be proud of (at frame rates up to 50p/60p). Continuous Live View autofocus keeps your subjects sharp, even when the action is fast. Thanks to the camera’s built-in stereo microphone and compatibility with Nikon’s external ME-1 Stereo Microphone, it’s easy to capture footage with crisp, clear sound.

16 scene modes & Effects mode
Quickly capture perfect shots using a range of scene modes, including Sports, Beach, and Snow. Simply select the mode that matches the subject or situation you’re shooting, and the camera will automatically optimise shutter speed, ISO, and aperture for superior results.
With the Effects mode, create distinctive photos and movies using a range of special effects. Isolate colours so they stand out, go black-and-white, explore a retro effect, or make buildings look like miniature scale models. You can preview your chosen effect and adjust its intensity as you shoot.
