The sharpness, clarity and richness of colors in the D5300’s photos and Full HD videos is nothing short of astounding. A recent design innovation allows the D5300’s 24.2-megapixel DX format CMOS image sensor* to capture pure, lifelike images. Enlarge or crop your photos without losing any sharpness or detail—a feat not possible with most smartphones. Pair that capability with any exceptional NIKKOR lens, marvels of clarity and sharpness in their own right, and you’ll experience the image quality your memories deserve.
*Exquisite detail reproduction realized by an image sensor unit designed without an optical low-pass filter.
With built-in Wi-Fi and GPS*, the D5300 is the first in an exciting new generation of connected Nikon DSLRs. Wirelessly connect to D5300 with your smartphone or tablet±, then browse the photos on D5300’s memory card, import your favorites and instantly email them, text them or post them online using the Wireless Mobile Utility app. While connected, your smart device can also act as a remote monitor for the D5300. See what the camera sees and even fire the shutter—perfect for group shots and self portraits! When traveling, built-in GPS geotags all of your shots. Create exciting travel journals, find nearby Points of Interest and easily share your location data when posting photos on Facebook or Flickr.
Don’t let the small size of the D5300 fool you—it delivers big-camera quality and capabilities. Like all Nikon DSLRs, the D5300 was designed for ergonomics—every button and dial was carefully placed for comfortable, efficient operation. Yet it’s big in all the right places, like its 3.2-inch swiveling Vari-angle LCD and its 24.2-megapixel DX-format CMOS image sensor. You’ll take the D5300 on every adventure, which means you’ll bring home more stunning views of your travels.
The D5300’s extra-large ultra-high resolution Vari-angle LCD swivels 180° so you can shoot from exciting new angles. Hold the camera overhead for great shots over a crowd. Hold the camera down low for a fun face-to-face perspective of your pet. And create some of your best selfies yet—frame a stunning new profile pic, then upload it right to web, thanks to Wi-Fi connectivity!*
Whether shooting stationary subjects, candid photos, high-speed action or Full HD video, the D5300 keeps subjects in focus. Its 39-point high-density autofocus system with 9 cross-type sensors quickly locks onto your subject, and Nikon’s unique 3D-tracking uses the 2,016-pixel RGB sensor to recognize and follow it across the frame.
When photo-worthy action starts, hold down the shutter button and capture every movement, expression and feeling at 5 frames per second, even when using the Vari-angle LCD. Stop reaching for your smartphone when an important moment happens—except to share the great shot you just caught with the D5300.
Bring the image quality the D5300 produces—softly blurred backgrounds, tack-sharp details, vibrant colors—to dazzling 1080p Full HD videos. In Live View, Nikon’s full-time autofocus follows your subject and keeps it sharp. A built-in stereo microphone adds high-fidelity sound to your videos, or you can add Nikon’s optional accessory ME-1 stereo microphone for the highest quality sound possible.
The D5300 features exceptional metering and onboard intelligence, freeing you to focus on the composition of your shots and, most importantly, the moment that’s taking place. Nikon’s outstanding Scene Recognition System analyzes your shooting situation, compares it to an onboard database of thousands of scenes, and automatically determines the most appropriate auto exposure, i-TTL flash exposure, white balance and autofocus settings.
Make a single vivid color pop in a black & white photo, turn a landscape into a toy model, shoot portraits that look like paintings, make your D5300 behave like a toy camera (new) and more, then share your creations with your smartphone or tablet.
Built-in HDR automatically combines two photos into one highly dynamic image, and new subject-based D-Lighting automatically brightens shadowy areas on your subjects—great for portraits.
Perfect the photos you share with D5300’s Retouch Menu. Easily crop, apply filters, effects and more right in the camera—no additional software needed—then instantly share your edited shot with your smartphone or tablet.
Even if you’re new to DSLR photography, getting great results in difficult situations couldn’t be easier—just select from 16 common Scene Modes for your situation, or let the camera pick for you.
The D5300’s easy to use Picture Controls let you alter your color palette and add a personal touch with six settings available; Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait and Landscape—customize the look and feel of your photos and HD videos.
