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

 

Sharing: In a nutshell, that's the story of the Nikon D5600 DSLR. Thanks to an overhauled, more comprehensive wireless networking setup, the D5600 will help you share your images more quickly and easily than the D5500 in whose footsteps it follows. And...

The Nikon D5600 continues in the tradition of this mid-level DSLR line in producing superb prints for the price point. While the imaging pipeline remains the same as that housed in the D5500, we can confirm that our sample held true to that high...

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 review: A mild update to an already excellent camera

 

A subtle update, but the Nikon D5600 is a strong all-rounder at a reasonable price.

Outstanding image quality ; Sophisticated autofocus ; Long battery life

Some functions are awkward to access ; Slow shot-to-shot times in live view mode

The D5600’s 39-point autofocus sensor beats the 750D’s 19-point sensor, although the recently announced EOS 800D (review coming soon) ups this to 45 points. Ultimately there’s no clear victor so if you’re already a Nikon user, or tempted to become one,...
