Nikon D5600 review

 

Nikon's entry-level D5600 still shoots impressive images for the right price.

Very good 24MP stills ; Fast autofocus ; Bluetooth (SnapBridge) ; Superior battery life ; Small, lightweight body

Contrast-detection-only live view AF ; Video limited to 1080p/60 ; Most specs unchanged from D5500

If you’re ready to move to an interchangeable lens camera from an older point-and-shoot or a phone, the Nikon D5600 is certainly a solid choice. It’s easy to operate and still image quality is truly excellent — at least, when paired with a good lens....

Before you go dirt cheap, consider spending a bit more on the Nikon D5600

 

There are only some minor tweaks over the almost 2-year-old D5500, but it remains a great, slightly-more-than-cheap dSLR.

The Nikon D5600 delivers excellent photo quality for its price class, as well as performance that can keep up with your kids and pets.

It may be too small for people with larger hands and it turns off the self-timer after every shot in single-shot mode.

Lightweight and compact with everything the family photographer needs, the Nikon D5600 maintains its position as a great general-purpose dSLR for its price class.

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: making connectivity a snap?

 

The Nikon D5600 is the company's latest model to gain the always-connected SnapBridge system for communication with smart devices. A mid-priced DSLR seems the perfect beneficiary, so does it make this a truly family friendly, socially connected camera?

Nikon D5600 Review

 

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

 

Nikon's latest intermediate-level DSLR is put to the test. Nikon D5600.

Very good image quality ; Small and lightweight ; Excellent touchscreen and general handling ; SnapBridge makes light work of image transfer

Touchscreen can’t be disabled ; JPEGs can be a bit on the dark side

The D5600 is equipped with a slightly larger-than-average 3.2-inch rear display – all its main rivals sport 3-inch monitors. This is of the side-hinged, vari-angle design that allows you to position the screen at just about any angle you can think of,...

Nikon D5600 review: More connected than ever

 

In the end, the D5600 is all about the images. It's capable of taking the sort of images you really do want to share, even with the standard kit lens.

Impressive image quality - especially in low light ; Big and vibrant tilt LCD touchscreen ; Small body with comfortable grip ; Exccellent battery life ; Seamless auto-upload of web-ready images to phone

Video AF remains behind competitors ; Not many reasons to pick this over cheaper predecessor ; Feature set doesn't stand out

Given the small scale of the Nikon D5600, it sometimes feels almost like using a mirrorless camera. Its ergonomic design ensures single-handed use is no problem, while the large touchscreen makes it a capable piece of kit for newcomers and enthusiast...
