The red 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
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.
