Nikon D5600 Review

A Quick Review and Specifications for the Nikon D5600

The Nikon D5600 launched January 2017. With the D5600, you can bring your ideas to reality. Its 24.2 effective megapixels, EXPEED 4 image processing engine, and ISO 100-25600 sensitivity range allow it to shoot vivid images, Full HD films, and time-lapse movies even in low-light conditions.

The Nikon D5600 has a 3.2-inch LCD screen that can be flipped out and will adjust the focus automatically when you touch it; this is all possible because of its vari-angle capacity. The vari-angle LCD panel and intuitive touch interface make it simple to find new points of view, which in turn inspires creativity. Designed for today’s connected world, the D5600 has built-in Bluetooth® and the Nikon SnapBridge app1 for automated picture uploading to your compatible smart devices2.

D-SLR photos could easily be shared online if they were saved to your smartphone or tablet as soon as they were taken. The SnapBridge software uses Bluetooth® to keep the D5600 connected to a compatible smart device so that photos may be automatically uploaded as you take them. Even if the camera is in a bag nearby, the picture transfer procedure is unaffected. By choosing the files in the app, you can easily transmit photographs and movies* via Wi-Fi®.
