Nikon D5300 Review
Nikon D5300 lies somewhat between the D3200 at entry level and D7100, which targets enthusiasts, in the APS-C lineup of the company. The D5300 provides a 24MP sensor, an articulated rear LCD, as well as more physical controls compared to the D3200, yet without the professional-grade AF system and twin-dial interface of the apparently higher-market D7100.
Nikon D5300 features full High Definition recording of video with stereo sound, more compact body and 3.2” tilting LCD screen. Built-in Wi-Fi quickly enables sharing to websites of social media (via Nikon app). Built-in GSP/A-GPS facilitates insertion of GPS log data into JPEG’s EXIF information. You can get this camera in red, silver and black colors. GPS is built-in and records location data (latitude, longitude and altitude), using EXIF data within the image, which can be utilized with Nikon image Space, ViewNX2 and other GPS-oriented apps. A-GPS function offers faster GPS lock acquisition. In both ergonomics and visuals, the D5300 appears to be its predecessor’s near-clone, as it’s tinier and fractionally lighter. Under the hood however, it is a much stronger camera in several essential ways. The D5300’s 24MP sensor does not have anti-aliasing filter, which affords it somewhat of an edge over the D5200 in terms of resolution. There is subtle difference, yet it is crucial at all times to see improvements to the potential of critical image quality, most importantly in mid-range models.
The D5300 as well offers beefed-up video mode, now capable of capturing 1080/60p High Definition video. This factor, including the slightly widened and 1.04 million-dot, fully articulated LCD screen, should imply the D5300 will be more attractive to videographers together with still photographers. Another interesting aspect is of battery life, which gets good boosting. The D5300, by CIPA figures, offers 600-shots endurance, in comparison to the 500 of D5200. Nikon D5300 can be classified easily as an update that is interactive, offering only a couple of features absent in its preceding D5200 model. This speaks volumes regarding the D5200, in that adding only few other elements is equivalent to having a 24 megapixel APS-CDSLR, 1080/60p High Definition video recording, while lacking an optical low-pass filter. Built-in Wi-Fi and fully-articulated display completes this list. The D5300 seems to be fully loaded in terms of its quoted specifications.
It could have been great to see a touch screen LCD among the features of Nikon D5300. Other important functions that this camera lacks are AF point, exposure compensation and twin control dials (which are normally present in more expensive models). It also sports a 24.1MP DX format CMOS sensor, lacking OLPF and presents a ISO 100-12,800 standard, reaching 25,600 expanded. It can run continuous shooting at 5 frames per second and backs it up with EXPEED 4 processing. The autofocus in this model is a standard 39-point, 9 cross type sensors system. The camera has a 2016-pixels RGB sensor for metering, can record videos at 1080p60 and counts with a built-in stereo mic. Everything is displayed in a 3.2” 1.04M dot vari-angle LCD monitor.
