A built-in GPS function that records location data and tracks movement
The D5300 is Nikon's first digital SLR camera with a built-in GPS function, enabling recording of location data (longitude, latitude, altitude) with images. Collaboration with ViewNX 2, NIKON IMAGE SPACE, and commercial mapping software enables display of images where they were captured on maps, as well as sharing of images with location data. What's more, the A-GPS function makes detection of location data smoother. This capability allows users to look back on memories, or track their movement, on vacations or with outdoor activities by shooting location, and date and time of capture.
A monocoque structure made of a new material for a smaller and lighter body that is strong and durable
The D5300 is designed with a monocoque structure utilizing a new material. As the camera cover and body are formed with a rigid, integrated structure, there are fewer joints. This enables a smaller and lighter camera with a width of 125 mm, height of 98 mm, and depth of 76 mm, and weighing just 530 g, all while maintaining the necessary strength and durability.
A 3.2-in., 1037k-dot vari-angle LCD monitor with wide viewing angle for simple shooting from any angle
Adoption of a larger 3.2-inch, approximately 1037k-dot LCD monitor with wide viewing angle ensures a crisp, clear display. The side-hinged vari-angle monitor opens from 0 to 180° to the side, and can be rotated up to 90° clockwise and up to 180° counter-clockwise when it is open. This enables shooting from a wide variety of angles, from low to high, and making even self portraits possible.
D-Movie function for recording full-HD 1920 x 1080 60p movies
The D5300 is equipped with a D-Movie function that supports recording of 1920 x 1080/60p movies. The combination of NIKKOR lenses, an effective pixel count of 24.2-million pixels, and the new EXPEED 4 image-processing engine provides movies with excellent resolution and very little in the way of noise, color aliasing, or moiré patterns. In addition, autofocusing during movie recording is possible using contrast-detect AF. When the focus mode is set to full-time-servo AF (AF-F) and AF-area mode is set to Subject-tracking AF, the camera automatically maintains focus on moving subjects. Manual movie settings are also available, allowing users to choose the desired shutter speed and ISO sensitivity in live view mode and with movie recording. Movie frame rate with full-HD recording can be selected from 24p, 25p, 30p, 50p, and 60p. In addition to recording of high-quality sound via the built-in stereo microphone, the optional Stereo Microphone ME-1 can also be used to record stereo sound.
Toy Camera Effect and HDR Painting added to Special Effects mode (total of 9 effects) for more creative expression with still images and movies
The D5300 is equipped with a Special Effects mode, with which effects can be selected and applied with recording of both still images and movies. Preview in the camera monitor before shooting or recording begins allows users to confirm the results of effect selection in real time. Users can choose from a total of nine special effects, including the seven built into the D5200 (Selective Color, Color Sketch, Miniature Effect, Night Vision, Silhouette, High Key, Low Key), as well as the new Toy Camera Effect and HDR Painting*. This allows users to easily enjoy dramatic effects like those seen in art and the movies. This mode was adopted to respond to the creative intent of users searching for a way to express their own unique style and creativity.
Designed with a firm grip using just one hand and available in 3 colors, including a new gray option
The D5300 grip is designed to fit comfortably in the palm of the hand for a firm hold using just one hand, making framing via both the optical viewfinder and the monitor's live view display easier. Further, in addition to the popular black and red colors, the D5300 is available in a new gray option. In addition, metal parts, such as the microphone cover and plate over the mode dial have a surface finish that gives the camera an elegant appearance.
Zoom/Focus Assist Lever NAL-1 primary features
The NAL-1 is a lever that enables smoother zooming and focusing when attached to the zoom ring or focus ring on a NIKKOR lens. It is especially convenient with movie recording.
