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. Full HD 1080p video recording is also supports up to 60 fps, and time-lapse movies can be created in-camera, too.

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, 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.
AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR Lens
Included with the camera body is the standard zoom AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens, which provides a 27-82.5mm equivalent focal length range. Featuring an integrated pulse stepping motor, this lens exhibits exceptionally smooth, fast, and quiet autofocus performance to suit both stills and video recording. The optical design incorporates a pair of aspherical elements and a Super Integrated Coating is also featured to suppress lens flare and ghosting. Additionally, this lens also features Vibration Reduction image stabilization to minimize the appearance of camera shake when shooting handheld.

Nikon D5600 Reviews

D5600 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 101.
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 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 Nice kit...Great business!! Nice kit for an intermediate user. Not a professional grade kit but darn near! At 24 MP, image resolution is great. The ability to record video was the primary reason for me selecting this kit. An immediate savings off the retail price made the purchase a no-brainer! Sales, customer service, and product availability at B&H is second to none. I have recently read that another major online retailer whose name begins with A and ends in N have vendors who are selling counterfeit “name brand” products. I never have to worry about that happening at B&H. Go nowhere else...B&H is number 1 in my book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nikon D5600 I had a Nikon D80 that stopped auto focusing so I bought theD5600. I like the camera body very much, but don’t care much for the lens that came in the kit (reason for 4stars) I think it would be better to buy body only and get lens separate. I like the touchscreen,WiFi,larger sensor,many new features, too many for this review. I replaced the lens with a a Nikon 18-300mm f3.5-6.3 VR zoom. Really like the combination for the work I do. Fast and sharp. The body is light lens is not too heavy nice set up for me. I know the short comings of a super zoom lens, I fix in post if it bothers the photo I take. I would recommend both the D5600 and the Nikon 18-300mm f3.5-6.3 AF,VR zoom lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I took the chance I have used Nikon full frame cameras for 45+ years.  The digital and autofocus ones kept getting bigger and heavier.  I have a 750 and 8y 10 but with the lenses attached they have not the go to cameras for just a walk around.  I used a P7100 Nikon and after that died a Canon p and s as I took my walks.  But I wanted something better.  Saw the Black Friday month long sales and decided on the 5600.  So happy. So light and even with the 18-300 lens it is very manageable. Dont need all the buttons, it does a lot without getting in the way.  Definitely recommend.  And of course BH Photo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from read the details This is a great lightweight travel camera with the new af-p lenses, but be careful what you order. The 2-lens kit doesn't have the 70-300mm VR. You're better to get the 18-55 VR kit, then order the 70-300mm VR separately. A number of buyers did or nearly got the much less useful 70-300 non-VR lens by mistake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera Bought this camera for my daughter. Easy to use touchscreen, presentation of information easy to understand. Small and compact compared to my D750. I have not taken enough photos/videos so far to compare. Continuous frame rate seems comparable to my old D700, and it could be better. I wish there was a headphone jack. I look forward to using Bluetooth and wireless (which is clunky on the D750). Nikon provides flimsy white push-on rear lens cap (probably for shipping), instead of LF4. Come on Nikon, for this price, I would expect real rear lens caps.

Can the D5600 be programmed for back button AF?

Can the D5600 be programmed for back button AF?
Asked by: Sue
The Nikon D5600 could be programmed for back button focus. Here is how you set it up: 1. Access the Menu. 2. Select the Wrench. 3. Locate the Buttons option. 4. In that submenu, find the option that says, AE-L/AF-L button and select it. 5. Scroll to the bottom where you see AF-ON. This changes your camera to back button focus.

I heard from Nikon press that this d5600 will have comparable image quality dynamic range to the d7200, which is a little higher than d5500. Can anyone confirm?
Asked by: Amos K.
We don't do tests here, but the well regarded tests by DXO found the results to be more similar to the D5500, just slightly less than the D7200. https://<a href= target= _blank ></a>
