Nikon D5300 Digital SLR Camera (Black) with 18-55 VR Lens and AF-S DX VR Zoom-NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED Twin Lens
Nikon introduced the D5300 DSLR, an F-Mount camera on October 17, 2013. This camera is built to serve photographers with a high dose of indulgence. The following review should give you an elaborate overview.
The Nikon D5300 features an Expeed 4 processor that features the latest nitty-gritties of the latest technology. The camera is Built with a 24 megapixel Image Sensor just like the one found on its predecessor (Nikon D5200). This camera has no Anti-aliasing filter like the D 7100. This camera has built-in Wi-Fi as well as GPS incorporated. The exception of GPS antenna and geo-tagging on this camera are new additions to this camera. Most of the features found in this camera are similar to the ones found in the previous version. Disappointingly, nothing has vastly changed since the D5200 and the new D5300 is not nearly as far as the D7100, this camera is just an upgrade with a little more promise. This camera shoots both RAW and Jpeg files at about 5 frames per second. The camera records full 1080p/60p videos along with low-resolution cinematics. The camera lacks options for higher frame rate like the 1-series cameras from Nikon’s line-up.
Design and Display:
The camera shares most of the characteristics as its predecessor, but with a few differences under its hood. The design cues remain the same, but the new model has a slightly re-designed grip and has comfort as its primary focus point. The handling is also pretty simple and the camera gives the user a lot of surface to latch onto. There is a 1.037 m dot LCD screen on the camera’s rear side. This is an articulating type screen and flips out of the body to provide a live view shot. The controls on this camera are logically placed so that it gives advanced shooters some leeway. Once the camera is held, the index finger will automatically find itself resting on the shutter release while the thumb rests right on the rear control dial. Manual shooters can also use the dial along with a second button that allows aperture control as well as shutter speed. The camera has an optical viewfinder alongside informational overlays that enable focus and exposure. There is also 0,82x magnification finder that covers 95% of the frame in either direction.
An EN-EL14 or the EN-EL14 A Lithium-ion battery powers the Nikon D5300. The battery life is estimated at 600 shots once the battery is fully charged.
18-55 VR Lens and AF-S DX VR Zoom-NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED Twin Lens:
As a basic provision, the camera comes along with the 18-55 mm VR lens. However, Nikon also offers this camera with the 55-200 mm Twin Lens pack. The combo pack is suitable for most kinds of photography. Based on the usage, the lenses can further be purchased.
The Nikon D5300 has a fair share of technical upgrades over its older counterpart. However, there is much more that could have been added to this camera than the actual.
