Nikon D5600 overview

  • 1Description

Compact, capable, and connected, the Nikon D5600 is a sleek DSLR that blends multimedia imaging capabilities with versatile wireless technology. Centered around a 24.2MP DX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 4 image processor, the camera offers a sensitivity range from ISO 100-25600 to benefit working in an array of lighting conditions, and the sensor and processor combination also supports continuous shooting up to 5 fps for working with moving subjects. It is able to record full HD 1080p video, supports up to 60 fps, and allows you to create time-lapse movies in-camera.

While slender in stature, the D5600 does feature a large 3.2" 1.037m-dot rear LCD touchscreen, and utilizes a vari-angle design to better facilitate working from high and low shooting angles. Additionally, SnapBridge is also featured, which can utilize Bluetooth low energy technology for wireless sharing of photos to your mobile device, including automatic transferring of resized images between the camera and your mobile device for seamless online sharing. Wi-Fi with NFC is featured, too, for larger file transfers, such as movies, to a linked device.

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 ISO 25600. Additionally, the sensor's design omits an optical low-pass filter in order to acquire the greatest amount 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.
SnapBridge Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
Supporting a wealth of sharing and tagging possibilities, the D5600 features built-in SnapBridge connectivity to permit seamless transferring of imagery to a mobile device. BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) technology enables communication between the camera and a smart device, and allows for automatic low-resolution image transfers as you shoot. SnapBridge requires a one-time setup and also works in conjunction with Nikon Image Space for backing up files and sharing imagery, and can also tag transferred images with date, time, and location info for keeping track of your journey. Additionally, once linked, the mobile device can remotely trigger the shutter and display a live view image from the camera to enable working from a distance.

In addition to Bluetooth, Wi-Fi with NFC is also available, and allows for wirelessly sharing both full-resolution photos and movies to smartphones or tablets. SnapBridge will automatically switch between the two technologies for a seamless wireless workflow.
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 matter 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.
Body Design
  • Rear 3.2" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD serves as an intuitive means for navigating settings menus and playback, as well as when shooting in live view. The screen also uses a vari-angle design to benefit working from high, low, and front-facing angles.
  • Eye-level pentamirror optical viewfinder provides a natural means for composing stills.
  • The rear touchscreen can be used while shooting with the optical viewfinder, and allows you to choose the focus point or adjust exposure settings. Additionally, during playback, the touchscreen enables navigating your imagery using a frame advance bar for quickly scrolling through numerous photos and movies.
  • Built-in pop-up flash can be used to provide additional illumination when working in low-light conditions. A hot shoe is also available for working with an optional external flash.
Full HD Movie Recording
Full HD 1920 x 1080p movie recording is supported in 60, 50, 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 3.5mm microphone input is integrated into the body design to support the use of an external microphone for enhanced control over audio recordings.

Additionally, Time-Lapse Movie recording is also supported for producing creative portrayals of subjects changing over periods of time. This mode will automatically format your image sequences into movie files for seamless playback.
Other Camera Features
  • Scene modes: Portrait, Landscape, Child, Sports, Close-Up, Night Portrait, Night Landscape, Party/Indoor, Beach/Snow, Sunset, Dusk/Dawn, Pet Portrait, Candlelight, Blossom, Autumn Colors, and Food

This mode is suitable for working with moving subjects.

Nikon D5600 reviews

D5600 DSLR Camera (Body Only) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Camera Love this camera. Very easy to use. Takes great shots, even if you leave it on auto as you are learning. The Snapbridge addition is very nice. (one of the few upgrades over the D5500) Transferring a smaller version of the file to my phone while taking pictures is a very nice feature. Makes it easy to share them with my wife in an instant. And the low power Bluetooth transfer is much better on battery life then the Wifi transfer of the previous model. Highly recommend getting the 35MM 1.8 prime lens with it. Great affordable addition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic camera, exceeded my expectations I enthusiastically recommend this camera for the serious amateur or pro wanna-be. I bought the D5600 a month before going on vacation and played with it to become familiar with the features. However, it wasn't until I was shooting 50-100 pictures a day (on vacation) did I get comfortable and efficient in changing settings, reviewing images, etc.. I now find it easy and a joy to use. I noticed that many more of my shots are keepers. The big, bright viewing screen provides a clear view of composition, focus, and lighting allowing me to more easily retake with adjustments. Some of my great shots were even taken from a moving car! I experimented with difficult light subjects and had great success. Expect great things with this camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good replacement for current Nikon DSLR Looking to replace my D-300 and reduce weight I've been considering a mirrorless replacement. The D5600 has the reduced weight and also good controls that the mirrorless cameras don't seem have. So far seems like a good choice. And B&H is first choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight & excellent features This camera goes everywhere I travel. Every ounce less helps when doing multi mile hikes along with all my other gear. It has all the features I need. I only shoot in manual mode (sometimes auto ISO indoors) and RAW. This camera shines along with my three primary lenses, the Tokina AT-X 14-20mm F2 PRO DX, Nikon AF-S FX 50mm f/1.8G and the Nikon AF-S DX 35mm f/1.8G. Very long battery life for me since I most of the time use the viewfinder only, I can keep the camera on all day and just snap away. I have yet to see anything I don't like. Unfortunately B&H doesn't allow me to upload more than 2 sample photos. To see more photos taken using this cameras and the lenses above please visit my Instagram page.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon D5600 body I purchased the Nikon D5600 to replace my Nikon D3200, which I gave away to an aspiring photographer. I really wanted a camera that had a back that would give me flexibility with it's rotation ability. the touch screen is also a great added bonus in viewing your photos and changing settings

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Great Camera! I hadn't bought a new DSLR since my D70s in 2004, so it took me awhile to decide which camera I wanted to buy. �For several months I debated between the D7500 and this D5600. �I wasn't sure about whether I'd like how menu driven the D5600 seemed to be compared to the D7500. �But I definitely preferred the D5600's flip out screen to the tilt screen of the D7500. �I didn't care about having 4K video, so not having it wasn't a negative, and I didn't feel I would need or miss the various features offered on the D7500 only. Ultimately, I decided to get the D5600 body by itself and then choose the specific lens I wanted to go with it rather than getting the limited 18-55 kit lens. �That one is a nice lens, but I wanted more zoom. �I figured the camera savings over the D7500 would buy me some additional lenses I wanted as well. � So after a few weeks of use, I'm crazy about this camera and I really love everything about it. �Who needs topside dials and buttons all over the place? �The access to all the camera settings are mostly through the touch one button and you get to a screen with all the changes you would usually make right there in front of you, all together at once so you can quickly make multiple changes. �Touch the ISO block on that screen and spin the dial to change it. �Touch the focus block and change that similarly. �The touch functions are incredibly great and quick to learn! �All the other available shooting changes are right in front of you and instant to access, and I have quickly �come to love that way of using a camera, I'm a touch screen convert now. �Out with the old, in with the new, it's fast, easy and efficient and I'm not going to be a snob about insisting on external dials and buttons. �The autofocus is speedy and accurate, and the scene settings are often useful, quick, and definitely fun.� Overall, this is a really impressive and fantastic camera and I've been blown away by it. It's definitely a world of difference from my oh-so-primitive D70s. �The 24mp sensor produces beautiful photos with an impressive dynamic range and color rendition. �I also love the smaller size of this camera, which was one of my initial preferences over the D7500. �It's very easy and comfortable to hold, the deep grip and smaller body depth is perfect for my smaller hands and gives a very secure grip, and I've also found that the smaller body size pairs nicely with the 18-300 walk-around lens I chose to go with it, the two balance quite nicely and seem fairly light to me when walking around.� I love using this camera, and I'd choose it again over the D7500, no regrets at all over not getting that one. �That was a great camera too, but I like this one a whole lot better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I probably would have stayed with the D5300. Traded up from a D5300. Mostly for the touch screen and Snap Bridge. So far, so good. Disappointed in the Snap Bridge however. Takes forever to synch with the camera, have to do it a few minutes. Also don't like the fact that I can't use my wireless remote from my old camera, have to use my iPhone with the Snap Bridge. Also noticed that Nikon no longer provides AV cables, viewfinder cover or hot shoe cover. Guess they're cutting costs wherever possible. Guess the current headlines bear the out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from D5600 Much, much lighter than my D90. Like the touch screen but still getting used to it so I'm testing the camera and new lens I bought. So far all is good. Fortunately You Tube, unlike Nikon, has some great videos on how to set up and adjust the camera so right now very pleased with the purchase and good service from B&H.
