Seamless Connectivity Through Nikon SnapBridge: Nikon SnapBridge makes it easier than ever to share photos wirelessly through Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology2. By establishing a constant connection between the Nikon D5600 and a compatible smart device, images can be sent from the camera automatically, ready to share. SnapBridge also makes it possible to seamlessly upload images to the cloud (Nikon Image Space) via compatible smart device. Additionally, SnapBridge connectivity allow users to shoot remotely or easily transfer movies to a compatible smart device by leveraging the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi3 connectivity.
Performance that Keeps Pace with Creativity: The 24.2-megapixel high-resolution CMOS sensor helps deliver excellent image quality and sharp images with color and clarity that blow away images taken with a mobile device, while the EXPEED 4 image processor offers powerful performance and prolongs battery life. Continuous shooting at 5 frames-per-second (fps) and a 39-point autofocus system helps capture fleeting moments and fast moving subjects with ease. The Nikon D5600 is a great companion for those looking to capture and share life’s special moments, especially when combined with the distinct perspective of NIKKOR lenses.
Amazing Low-Light Performance: The Nikon D5600 also provides users the capability to shoot in challenging light with an expanded wide 100-25,600 ISO range. The ability to use higher shutter speeds with minimal illumination gives users the tools to capture brighter, sharper images.
Creative Features: From down to a child’s perspective to a shot above a crowd, it’s easy to compose from any angle with the 3.2-inch 1.037k-dot touchscreen Vari-angle LCD. Various in-camera shooting and special effects modes, manual controls and a new time-lapse mode allow users to take creativity to a new level and help capture a special moment with ease.
