Full 24.2-megapixel power: Specifically designed without an optical low-pass filter (OLPF), the D5300’s image sensor makes the most of its 24.2-megapixel resolution to sharply capture even the finest textures and render images with incredibly crisp detail.
39-point AF system: With 39 focus points, including nine cross-type sensors in the center, the D5300’s autofocus system is incredibly accurate. Advanced 3D subject tracking maintains focus on even the smallest subjects, however unpredictable their movements may be.
2,016 pixel RGB metering sensor: The D5300’s incredibly accurate metering sensor delivers exact exposures and sends data to the Scene Recognition System, which optimises auto exposure, autofocus, and auto white balance for superior results.
5 fps continuous shooting: Shoot action at a swift five frames-per-second and capture fleeting movements or expressions at exactly the right moment.
Large, high-resolution LCD monitor: See every detail of your photos and movies, thanks to the large 8.1 cm (3.2-in.) LCD monitor with wide-viewing angle and high 1,037k-dot resolution. Compose or review shots and apply special effects with clarity whether you’re shooting indoors or out.
HDMI output: Connect your camera directly to an HDTV screen and enjoy your movies and photos in superb high-definition. Compatible with HDMI-CEC (Consumer Electronics Control), the camera even allows you to control playback using your TV’s remote control.
High-quality audio: Record movies that don’t just look good, but that sound great, too. Thanks to the camera’s built-in stereo microphone and compatibility with Nikon’s external ME-1 Stereo Microphone, it’s easy to capture footage with crisp, clear sound.
Effects mode: Create distinctive photos and movies using a range of special effects. Isolate colours so they stand out, go black-and-white, explore a retro effect, or make buildings look like miniature scale models. You can preview your chosen effect and adjust its intensity as you shoot.
16 scene modes: Quickly capture perfect shots using a range of scene modes, including Sports, Beach, and Snow. Simply select the mode that matches the subject or situation you’re shooting, and the camera will automatically optimise shutter speed, ISO, and aperture for superior results.
Optimum detail in high-contrast conditions: Two modes help you capture the details in both dark and bright areas when you shoot images in strong light, or in backlit situations. HDR (High Dynamic Range) is ideal for stationary subjects and Active D-Lighting is ideal for photos of moving subjects. Both modes allow you to select the intensity level.
Intelligent design: With a large LCD screen and small, lightweight body, the D5300 is a pleasure to shoot with. Nikon’s superior ergonomics, clear menus, and one-touch buttons for frequently used functions like D-Movie and Live View make operation quick and intuitive.
NIKKOR lenses: Take advantage of Nikon’s legendary NIKKOR lenses and make the most of the camera’s 24.2-megapixel resolution. Capture photos with vivid colour and striking contrast. Shoot movies with crisp detail or experiment with cinematic effects.
