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.
Other Camera Features
  • Picture Control modes can be directly accessed via a dedicated button and allow you to set predefined looks to imagery in-camera, and include Landscape, Monochrome, Neutral, Portrait, Standard, Vivid, and user-customizable settings.
  • RAW (NEF) files can be recorded as lossless compressed or compressed at either 12 or 14-bit depth.
  • Built-in HDR works to extend the tonal and exposure range of a single image by recording two separate exposures and blending them together in order to gain greater highlight and shadow details with an extended range of mid-tones.
  • Active D-Lighting helps to preserve both highlight and shadow details when working in contrast-rich scenarios, such as backlit lighting. Utilizing the EXPEED 4 processor's power, a more controlled image will be produced with brightness values closer to how they are naturally seen. This mode is suitable for working with moving subjects.

Gave this to my wife for her 50th. Currently used for family photos. Within minutes my wife, using Auto-Focus, was able to get going with this camera (helped being a previous 35mm SLR user with some experience with the simpler features) Within a week we have dozens of amazing photographs from birthdays and a graduation, some landscapes, and wonderful architectural feature photos of our old house. An example of how good - we are 100ft from the college graduation presentation stage - using the 18-55mm lens (forgot to take the 55-200mm) the graduating nephew is a small figure - now zoom in on the photo and it is as good as standing right next to him... awesome resolution. Aside from a few photo attempts with wriggling 3yr old all the photos are amazing. Can't wait to take it to the next level with the longer lens and some manual manipulation.

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.

    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.

    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 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.

                This was my first DSLR camera. It is a great camera for beginners. it makes it easy to learn how aperture and shutter affect each other in Manual. While the GPS drains battery, it is a very neat addition. The built-in Wifi makes it easy to get your pictures to your phone to post on Instagram, Facebook, or Tumblr without the use of a computer!

                      So far we like this camera. I thought at first my wife might be intimidated by it. But she took to it like a duck to water. The little bit we have used it so far has been a good experience. Good easy to use controls both in the automatic and manual settings. I would recommend it to anyone who is using a DSLR for their photography.

                        I am a slightly advanced beginner. This camera has been patient with me exploring all the options. It is a perfect size, fits nicely in my hand as well as the bag. Pictures have such a range of vivid color.

                        I took about 500 pictures in Baltimore in December--at the National Aquarium (animals moving, dark light above or behind, sunny outside, in a restaurant). No scenario was too tricky for this camera. Shutter speed for action shots is impressive! The pictures are amazing- Would definitely recommend. Battery is long and 16 or 32 card easily holds hundreds of pictures.

                          I have been using Nikon dSLRs for a few years now, and have experience with the D90 and D3100 series, so the D5300 is a slight step up from those, and I am impressed so far. Great ease of use, if you're experienced with Nikon alreadt, and I love the flip LCD screen on the back so I can flip it around fro protection when I'm not using the camera. I haven't used a lot of the manual features, but feel that once I do, it will meet any need I ask it for.

                          I am not an expert on cameras but this is a great buy if you are switching from a point and shoot to an SLR.

                              I am just starting out as a professional photographer and it is treating me well.
                              Most everything on the camera is easy to use, except changing the fstop along with focus points.
                              These are not easy to get to with out removing the camera from your eye.
