The Nikon D5300 is quite an exciting development in Nikon's DX line-up for a number of reasons. Following on from the D7100, it's the second Nikon APS-C DSLR to omit the optical low-pass filter in front of the sensor and I'd be surprised if that isn't a trend that continues to spread to other...

    1037K-dot 3:2 proportioned flip-out screen., Built-in Wifi and GPS., 1080p60 HD video mode., Excellent image quality.

The Nikon D5200 impressed us last time around, but Nikon have managed to go one-better with the D5300 . While its new features don’t make it a groundbreaking release, they add up to make it a better specified product for the entry-level and advanced amateur photographers it’s out to target.

  • +

    Superb detail; Excellent build quality; Fast AF acquisition; In-built Wi-fi; Intuitive graphic user interface; In-built 3.5mm mic port; 5fps continuous shooting

  • -

    Lacks touchscreen functionality; Poor App performance; Slow and noisy kit lens; no headphone port for audio monitoring

The Nikon D5300 D-SLR is a modest upgrade from the previous model, but it's just as worthy, making it our Editors' Choice for entry-level D-SLRs.

  • +

    24-megapixel sensor with no optical low-pass filter. Sharp vari-angle display. Excellent JPG detail at high ISO. 4.7fps continuous shooting. 39-point autofocus system. Quick startup. 1080p60 video capture. Integrated Wi-Fi and GPS. Standard mic input.

  • -

    Images on the noisy side. Will not autofocus with screw-drive lenses. Pentamirror viewfinder. Single control wheel. Self-timer deactivates after use. Lacks depth of field preview.

The D5300 is a very good upper-entry-level DSLR with a high-resolution sensor and solid video features. It's bigger than mirrorless competitors and it's priced on the high end of its class, but it won't let down a budding photographer, especially those who plan to upgrade from the kit lens to...

  • +

    Excellent image quality, High resolution sensor produces highly detailed images, Useful and sophisticated Auto ISO system, Solid feature set for first-time DSLR users, Good frame coverage of 39-point AF array, 1080/60p HD maximum video resolution, Customizable Fn button, Fully articulated LCD,...

  • -

    Single Fn button is only means of direct access to key shooting settings like ISO and WB, Extreme lag in magnified live view, On-screen 'info' menu is dense and hard to operate quickly, No live preview of aperture changes in live view, Built-in flash lacks master function, Slow live view AF

18 April 2014

The D5300 is a very good entry-level DSLR – which in our view are sub $849 kits – and earns our Recommended status. Stills and videos are top notch and the built-in Wi-Fi and GPS are real pluses, and that vari-angle LCD takes it to the next level.

In late 2013, Nikon announced their latest D-series entry-level DSLR, the D5300. The D5300 is replacing the D5200 and boasts a whole slew of upgrades. This is not just a simple re-badging.

  • +

    Very good image quality versus other entry-level DSLRs, Improved performance speed versus predecessor, Anti-aliasing filter removed for clearer images, ISO settings up to 25,800 (equivalent), Noise in photos is limited, even at mid- to high-range ISO settings, Built-in Wi-Fi and GPS included, Stereo...

    No touchscreen feature with LCD, Battery drains quickly when using Live View mode, Camera's performance slows considerably in Live View mode, Autofocus sharpness is inconsistent when recording video, No eye sensor; viewfinder mode doesn't activate automatically when you raise D5300 to your eye,...

$1,000 gets you a lot of different options for digital cameras--here's why the D5300 should be on your list.

10 June 2014

The Nikon D5300 follows the Nikon D5200 and there is an important difference between the two. The D5300 has a new image sensor without a low-pass filter, which contributed to an excellent performance in our resolution tests.

At first glance the Nikon D5300 may look just like the D5200, but there are some decidedly big upgrades under the hood that make it an even more attractive option for more serious beginner photographers and budding enthusiasts as well.

  • +

    Excellent image quality and resolution (similar to D7100) thanks to AA-filterless 24-megapixel, APS-C CMOS sensor and EXPEED 4 processor, 39-point AF system with 9 cross-type sensors, Compact and portable but fairly robust camera build with a comfy handgrip, Longer than average zoom kit lens, with...

  • -

    Penta-mirror viewfinder not as big and bright as full pentaprism OVF, Glossy LCD is prone to glare and reflections; can be hard to read in bright sunlight, Built-in HDR mode only uses 2 exposures; High and Extra High HDR modes can produce strange halo effect, Built-in stereo mics very susceptible to...

After what has been said it is almost needless to point out how the Nikon D5300 is a great camera advisable from every point of view. It produces excellent pictures, precise, with many details, and so extensive in pixels to allow even very large prints.

  • +

    Photos and videos of high quality and precision, Integrated Wi-Fi, Many features, Easy to use.

  • -

    The screen is not touch, The mobile app allows minimal interaction with the camera.

I use this product as an amateur photographer, if you're using a Canon and changing to a Nikon, be prepared to feel like windows users using Mac devices. One thing that I liked more in my Canon, was the sturdiness of the battery lid and the easiness of removing the battery.

    Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality

    I've nothing to say.

15 September 2015

Got this to use for taking senior pics for my daughter. We also used it at a wedding and it works great with wonderful picture quality. However, since my daughter had basically kept the camera with her, I have yet to really learn how to use it and learn all the options.

    Great Quality And Easy Us, So Far Works Perfect

    Still Learning All The Op

5 August 2015

great features the only reason I marked down ease of use is it is a fully loaded camera but for a novice like me it is a lot to handle. I did a lot of research prior to buying and this is the camera to buy I even like it more than the newer 5500 (which has touch screen and is nice ) this is the...

Love the camera and the service from Beach Camera was great. Beach Camera will be my choice in the future for camera equipment purchases. Still exploring the different options with the D5300 but I find it very easy to operate and it takes great pictures.

    For a new DSLR owner I have no cons at this time.

4 June 2015

I gave 4/5 eggs because the pros severely outweigh the cons, but the cons are notable. Another sort-of-con would be that if you are interested in the multi-exposure technique, you can do it, but every time your 2 or 3 shots are taken, you have to go back into the settings and turn it back on for...

  • +

    - Superb Image Quality - Low noise at high ISO - Comprehensive menu settings - Battery Life is very long - Wifi & GPS

    - Wifi severely shortens battery life - can switch on/off - No panorama mode - No dedicated ISO button - Assigned to FN button on front left - Build material quality doesn't seem as sturdy as other most DSLRs

I searched for months to pick what I thought would be the most bang for the buck. Nothing was off the table. I narrowed my search down to a Pentax, Sony, Canon and Nikon. Many reviews mentioned the better quality pic's from the Nikon so Thats where I landed. Then, what model?

Great pictures and easy to use, still learning all the settings on this camera. I got the red one and it is very pretty too! So far I am very pleased with this camera and I would recommend it to anyone who loves taking a really great picture!

13 February 2015

I bought this camera as an upgrade to my D5100. After almost a year of use still finding things I like about it. I now use this as a second (back up) camera in the studio and my primary camera in the field. I bought a D7100 for my studio camera.

I decided to add my own review which I will continue to update as I have been commenting on the others here. I received the D5300 on Saturday (got the Grey and have to say I really like the subtle color) and have been taking several test photos with my Sigma 18-250 Macro lens that I purchased only a...

    Best image quality at this price point, Menu system is pretty intuitive and easy to manage from the LCD, Lighter weight and smaller size, Excellent sensor and processor

    Weak GPS - needs A-GPS file from Nikon to work better, Wifi setup was a bit confusing
