Share Your Creations On-The-Go
Sharing your moments as they happen without missing a beat is effortless with the D5600. With a one-time setup through the free SnapBridge*1 app, the D5600 wirelessly connects to your compatible smart device*2 via the built-in Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth®, or NFC*3. The app maintains a constant connection, while automatically syncing still images for seamless online sharing. You can also use your smart device as an external monitor and shoot remotely*4 for instances when you want to be in the picture.
Details at Its Finest
Capture amazingly sharp and tonally-rich images and videos with the D5600’s DX-format CMOS image sensor, designed without an optical low-pass filter to bring out the full resolving power of its 24.2 effective megapixels. Its EXPEED 4 image-processing engine also works to improve overall speed and performance in a variety of shooting situations. In dimly lit environments, the D5600’s wide standard ISO range of 100 to 25600 allows you to achieve crisp and sharp images in which noise is effectively suppressed.
Seize Split-Second Moments
Be it a look, a smile, or a candid expression, the D5600 captures all these emotions in vivid detail with a high-speed continuous shooting rate of approximately 5 frames per second*5. The 39-point autofocus (AF) system covers a wide area of the frame to keep track of your subjects with remarkable precision.
Discover a Fresh Point of View
Experiment with novel shooting styles from your very own perspective with the touch screen vari-angle LCD monitor that can swivel up to 180°. For that artistic finishing touch, simply trim, resize, apply filters and special effects right from your screen using the retouch menu.
Intuitively Designed for Easy Handling
Enjoy ease-of-use and intuitive control with the D5600’s touch interface. Scroll through images swiftly with the all-new frame advance bar, or easily trim an area of the image by pinching it out. The touch Fn feature lets you make adjustments to a pre-assigned camera setting using your thumb, without looking away from the viewfinder, including auto sensitivity control on/off switching.
Bring your stories to life and record Full HD videos at 1080/60p with tack-sharp details, vibrant colors and stereo sound. Discover new forms of creative expression with the time-lapse movie function, which transforms scenes and subjects into dramatic, high-speed sequences with smooth exposure variations entirely in-camera.
Take It Everywhere
Designed for portability, this lightweight camera features an innovative monocoque structure that is strengthened with a carbon-fibre composite material for outstanding durability. With a long-lasting battery life that packs 970 shots per charge*6, this camera is undoubtedly your perfect travel companion.
Expand Your Horizons
The possibilities are endless with the D5600’s versatile compatibility with an ever-expanding range of NIKKOR lenses and accessories. No matter the subject or scene, there is a NIKKOR lens manufactured to the highest standards of optical quality, to suit all of your expressive photography needs.
