The black Nikon D5300 DSLR Camera features a DX-format 24.2 megapixel sensor and EXPEED 4 image processor to produce high-resolution still imagery and full HD video with notable low-light sensitivity to ISO 12800 and a fast continuous shooting rate of 5 fps. The sensor design omits the traditional optical low-pass filter in order to gain the utmost sharpness and resolution from both photos and videos. Complementing the imaging assets are both a versatile 39-point autofocus system, with nine cross-type sensors, and a 2,016-pixel RGB sensor for precise exposure metering in a wide variety of lighting conditions. Additionally, 1920 x 1080p movie recording is supported, in multiple frame rates up to 60 fps, with full-time continuous auto focusing capabilities.

The compact, yet durably designed, camera body incorporates both an optical pentamirror optical viewfinder along with a large 3.2" 1,037k-dot vari-angle LCD monitor, which features a 180° swivel design to better support working from high and low angles. Also integrated into the D5300 are both Wi-Fi and GPS modules, which enable advanced image sharing capabilities as well as location-based image tagging. When paired with an Android or iOS mobile device, remote viewing and control over the shutter release is possible from a distance and a vast network of pre-populated Points of Interest adds to the overall geotagging functionality.

For creatively enhancing the look and feel of imagery in-camera, a wide range of Picture Control modes, Scene Modes, and Special Effects modes are available as well as a host of in-camera image editing capabilities for adjusting settings prior to sharing. Built-in HDR and Active D-Lighting modes can also be used to optimize exposure results by preserving highlight and shadow details for an extended range of apparent tones.

Included with the D5300 camera body is the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II lens; a standard zoom providing a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 27-82.5mm. This lens incorporates a robust VR image stabilization system, which helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed steps to benefit working in low-light conditions. A Super Integrated Coating reduces flare and ghosting to optimize image clarity, contrast, and color neutrality and a rounded seven-blade diaphragm works to create a pleasing out-of-focus quality in shallow depth of field images.

24.2MP DX-Format Sensor and EXPEED 4 Processor
The 24.2 megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 4 processor work together to produce overall high image quality with notable detail, dynamic range, color accuracy, and low-light sensitivity to a native ISO 12800, which is further expandable to ISO 25600. Additionally, the sensor's design omits an optical low-pass filter in order to acquire the greatest amount of sharpness and detail from subjects. The EXPEED 4 processor also enables a wealth of speed throughout the camera system, including support for full HD 1080p movie recording and a full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 5 fps.
Multi-CAM 4800DX Autofocus Sensor
Benefitting the high image quality is an apt AF system that employs 39 distinct AF points, including nine cross-type sensors, to quickly acquire focus in a range of lighting conditions, from -1 to +19 EV. A unique 3D-tracking mode utilizes the 2,016-pixel RGB sensor, typically reserved for exposure metering, in order to maintain sharp focus on moving subjects. To better suit specific subject matters when working in AF-A or AF-C focus modes, Dynamic-area AF mode allows you to choose from 9, 21, or 39-point arrays for enhanced subject tracking and recognition, even if the subject briefly leaves the frame. Single-point AF, 3D-tracking, and Auto-area AF modes are also available.

When working in live view, for either still or movie shooting, a contrast-based AF system is employed to acquire focus precisely and can function in continuous, full-time servo mode to better suit working with moving subjects. Additionally, four AF-area modes are available when working in live view: Face-priority AF, Wide-area AF, Normal-area AF, and Subject-tracking AF.
Wi-Fi and GPS Connectivity
Supporting a wealth of sharing and tagging possibilities, the D5300 features built-in Wi-Fi and GPS modules to enable seamless transferring of imagery as well as geotagging functionality. Once the Nikon Wireless Mobile Utility app has been installed on an Android or iOS mobile device, you can use that device to browse the contents of the memory card, select images, and seamlessly transfer files between devices for immediate sharing online. Additionally, the mobile device can remotely trigger the shutter and display a live view image from the camera to enable working from a distance.

The integrated GPS functionality can be used to assign locational data to all image files for geotagging purposes and for plotting imagery to an interactive map. Points of Interest can also be found using this information to further aid in efficient location-based tagging.
Body Design
Even while maintaining an overall compact form-factor, the D5300 integrates a large 3.2" 1,037k-dot vari-angle LCD monitor, which features a 180° swivel design to better suit working from high, low, and front-facing angles. Alternatively, a bright pentamirror optical viewfinder is also integrated into the design for precise eye-level viewing and real-time monitoring of subjects.

A built-in pop-up flash is also available for additional illumination when working in low-light conditions and supports Nikon's i-TTL flash metering system. A hot shoe can be used, too, for connection and optional external flash for even greater lighting control.
Scene Recognition System and Exposure Metering
The intelligent Scene Recognition System with 3D Color Matrix Metering II utilizes a 2016-pixel RGB sensor to evaluate and analyze all aspects within a scene, including brightness, contrast, subject distance, and the scene colors, to quickly determine an accurate exposure and white balance setting to best render the scene at hand. The information gathered is also checked against onboard reference images to ensure consistency from image to image in regard to exposure, white balance, i-TTL flash settings, and subject-tracking AF performance.
Full HD Movie Recording
Full HD 1920 x 1080p movie recording is supported in 60, 30, 25, and 24 fps frame rates, as well as HD 720p and SD 480p in multiple frame rates, in the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format. During recording, full-time autofocus can be employed, with face-detection and subject-tracking capabilities, for ensured sharpness with a wide variety of subject types.

A built-in stereo microphone can be used to record high-quality sound or, alternatively, a microphone input is integrated into the body design to support the use of an external microphone for enhanced control over audio recordings.
AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II Lens
Included with the camera body is the standard zoom AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 27-82.5mm. Designed to be as compact and lightweight as possible, this lens features a retractable lens barrel design that extends 2.6" from the camera. Benefitting the low-light imaging capabilities of the D5300, VR (Vibration Reduction) technology is incorporated into the lens' design to provide up to 4 stops of compensation against camera shake for cleaner, clearer imagery. Additionally, a Super Integrated Coating (SIC) has also been applied to lens elements to maintain true color fidelity and contrast by suppressing flare and ghosting.

I used the product in my hobby and business. I take pictures of the top of fruit trees to see how the fruit is setting and what pollinators are coming around. I could not get sharp pictures with this camera lens combinations. I own a D70 Nikon and a Canon Rebel T2i These two do a far superior job for me. I thought I was going to be upgrading to a more modern camera higher ISO etc. This Nikon was a disappointment for me, or there is something wrong with it. Feels like a toy.

    Comments about D5300 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Black):

    I am a professional photographer based in Arlington, Virginia. I have had Nikon cameras for over 30 years. The D5300 replaced a Nikon D7000. It's smaller, with higher resolution, better quality at higher ISO settings. The built in WIFi means I can control the camera from my smart phone.
    So far I have no complaints at all - I really like this camera. The Nikkor 18-55mm VRll lens is really sharp - a fantastic bargain.

        Comments about D5300 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Red):

        I am an entry-level photo enthusiast who wanted a camera that I could grow into...and this is it! My husband and I have been capturing amazing photos already with just the standard settings and we're going to do some workshops for the more advanced settings as we learn more over time.

        So far, we have been very pleased with the:
        speed of the camera...very fast...especially in sports mode,

        wi-fi connectivity...a wonderful option which allows me to take some great photos and send them to friends and family that day...instead of the typical waiting period of downloading them to the computer and then sending them out,

        and picture clarity is excellent!

        This camera packs a lot in a lightweight and striking package! So far we have been loving it!

          This seems to be a solid camera but might be better suited for a more advanced photographer then I am. I expect that I will get used to it and even appreciate the more advanced features. It is just more complicated to operate than my old Canon Powershot that I grew to love.

              Comments about D5300 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Gray):

              I just got the camera a couple of weeks ago, so I haven't had the chance to use it a lot. I did take some pics at a wedding, and they came out very well. I have big hands and the camera fits perfectly. I like everything about it.

                I priced this camera at other stores and they were more expensive. I received a SD card and a camera bag which is like getting a free gift. This is more than a $ value at no extra cost. I'm loving it.

                Comments about D5300 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Gray):

                I just used this lovely DSLR for Aviation Geek Fest 2015 to photograph everything from flying airplanes to static displays to a social event at the Future of Flight to aerial photos. I love this camera's capabilities and high image quality. Also the low digital noise is totally rad.

                Only problems are the slow response in live view to the shutter and problems with the built-in GPS in an airplane. Oh well, live and learn.

                I use my D5300 to shoot both objects and people. The quality is simply Top-Shelf and truly unbelievably good... Simply the best to date!

                The only thing that I would change is the handle, should be larger to fit the average man's hand.

                        I take a lot of pictures - can't wait to really get into it. It is much lighter than my old camera and I love the clarity of the pictures I have snapped!

                          I am an experienced amateur who was looking for lightweight, good quality picture and smooth handling. This fit the bill on all counts. I have found there to be a bit more of a delay after releasing the shutter, but have been advised there are settings that will minimize the delay.

                            I used the product in my hobby and business. I take pictures of the top of fruit trees to see how the fruit is setting and what pollinators are coming around. I could not get sharp pictures with this camera lens combinations. I own a D70 Nikon and a Canon Rebel T2i These two do a far superior job for me. I thought I was going to be upgrading to a more modern camera higher ISO etc. This Nikon was a disappointment for me, or there is something wrong with it. Feels like a toy.
