Nikon D5600

 

The Nikon D5600 SLR undercuts its predecessor's asking price and doesn't skimp on features, but still lags behind competing Canon models when it comes to Live View autofocus.

24MP image sensor with no OLPF. Excellent image quality. 39-point AF system. 5fps continuous shooting. Speedy operation. 1080p60 video capture. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth communication. External mic support.

Cramped controls. Pentamirror viewfinder. Older screw-drive lenses won't autofocus. Underwhelming contrast autofocus during video recording. Limited Wi-Fi remote control.

The Nikon D5600 is a relatively minor update to the D5500, which was already an excellent SLR. The big addition is SnapBridge, which uses Bluetooth to make file transfers seamless, as well as adding GPS data to images. The same strong autofocus system...

Nikon D5600 Review

 

The Nikon D5600 is a new 24.2 megapixel DX-format DSLR camera with no optical low-pass filter (OLPF). The D5600 replaces the 18-month-old D5500 and offers several new features. SnapBridge compatibility utilises Bluetooth low energy technology to let...

The Nikon D5600 is an incredibly modest update of the 18-month-old D5500, essentially adding Snapbridge connectivity, a deeper handgrip and a handful of other non-essential features that collectively hardly set the world on fire. While the D5600...

Nikon D5600 Review

 

Overall, the updated Nikon D5600 does not bring a lot of new features to the table compared to the D5500 predecessor, which debuted in early 2015. Then again, there wasn't a lot of room for improvement; the D5500 was already a great camera. The biggest...

Sensitivity Sensitivities on offer in the Nikon D5600 range from ISO 100 to 25,600 equivalents. That's the same range as was available from the D5300 and D5500. However, the entire range is available by default. That differs from the D5300, where...

Nikon D5600: Best DSLR Under $1,000

 

The D5600 is a highly capable camera at an affordable price that will appeal to a range of DSLR users. Beginners will find getting good shots easy from the get-go, and more advanced users will appreciate the camera's bells and whistles. Those users who...

Top-notch image quality ; Responsive performance ; Very good battery life External microphone jack ; Easy transfer of images to mobile devices ; Solid set of practical and creative features

Minimal manual control for video ; No 4K video ; Sometimes-fussy Wi-Fi

While only a modest update from its predecessor, the Nikon D5600 is an excellent choice for a midlevel DSLR.

Nikon D5600 DSLR Review

 

We review the new Nikon D5600, with built-in Bluetooth, NFC and Wi-Fi, it's designed to be the connected Digital SLR.

The Nikon D5600 offers a larger than normal 3.2inch touch-screen, and a surprisingly compact DSLR camera body. The body is ergonomic despite the small size, with a large hand-grip. The 24-megapixel sensor features no optical low-pass filter , which...
