The D5300's on-board image processing engine gives you blazing reaction speed, sharply detailed images in low light, and smooth, faithful color rendering with subtle gradations. The high-density, 39-point autofocus system helps you keep track of your subject in challenging shooting conditions, even when you're following dynamic action coming toward or going away from the camera. And you can shoot full-resolution images at up to 5 frames per second in continuous shooting mode, while panning with your subject. Follow the action in either the optical viewfinder or on the wide screen, 3.2-inch vari-angle LCD monitor.
Images that move with you
The D5300 shoots lush HD video at up to 1080/60p with full-time autofocus. Use either the built-in stereo microphone, or an external mic connected through the stereo minijack input, and adjust your input levels to suit your environment. The more experienced videographer will appreciate the advanced manual modes that are available, even in the middle of acquiring the shot, and your adjustments will be reflected in the easy-to view, articulated live view LCD monitor.
Two agile lenses put great photos within easy range
Nikon picked the perfect starter lenses to go with this capable camera. The 18-55mm lens gives you the flexibility to shoot expressive portraits with dreamy blurred backgrounds, sweeping landscapes with the entire scene in focus, and everything in between. Built-in vibration reduction minimizes image blur and camera shake when shooting stills or video in low light without a tripod.
