Nikon today announced the D5600, an entry-level DX-format digital SLR that has been designed for photography hobbyists and content creators to explore different creative and artistic expressions. The Digital SLR camera offers many convenient connectivity features, allowing for easy sharing and social storytelling.
The D5600 features a 24MP APS-C sensor, just like its predecessor, the D5500. With no optical low-pass filter, users will be able to capture images making the most of the superior rendering characteristics of NIKKOR lenses. The EXPEED 4 image processing engine found on its predecessor has been retained as well, with a broad range of standard sensitivities supported – ISO 100 to 25600. The combination means you can look forward to stunning photos even when shooting in dark or dimly lit surroundings.
The SnapBridge feature of the new D5600 allows users to easily share photos from the camera to a smart device using Bluetooth technology. Once your device is paired with the camera, you can enjoy features such as automatic transfer of photos, automatic upload to Nikon’s photo sharing service NIKON IMAGE SPACE, addition of copyright information and comments to photos, and automatic synchronization of camera date/time and location information with that of the smart device.
The D5600 comes equipped with a 3.2-inch Vari-angle LCD monitor that enables shooting from low angles, high angles, and even selfies. The LCD monitor is touch-enabled, supporting the same touch operation available with the D5500, with support for frame advance bar feature adopted for high-end D5 and D500 that lets you scroll through images in full-frame playback. The touch Fn now supports enabling and disabling of auto ISO sensitivity control as well. Nikon also claims to have improved the operation with viewfinder shooting.
Another impressive new feature is the time-lapse movie function, which basically allows you to easily compress long periods of time into short ones, entirely within the camera. The Time-lapse movies recorded on the camera can be transferred to a smart device easily via SnapBridge.
