Nikon D5300 DSLR Review

Those seeking an entry-level DSLR camera will be very pleased with the Nikon D5300 model. It has all of the basic photography features that you'd expect to find in an advanced interchangeable lens digital camera, including outstanding image quality and fast performance.

Nikon didn't skimp on the "extra" features with the D5300 either. It offers a high-quality 3.2-inch articulated LCD screen, which is great for shooting odd-angle photos or for using this model when attached to a tripod. You'll also find built-in Wi-Fi with the D5300, which is a very popular feature with cameras currently in the market.

Nikon D5300 DSLR Review
The large DX format image sensor that Nikon included with the D5300 includes 24.2 megapixels of resolution, which is among the largest resolution numbers you'll find in a DSLR camera. The large image sensor helps this model to perform extremely well in low light photography.

The biggest drawback to the Nikon D5300 is its large starting price at more than $1,000. The D5300 is among the most powerful introductory DSLR cameras on the market, but it also carries one of the higher price tags for that type of DSLR Camera  model. If you're someone who would like to purchase a DSLR camera that's easy to use at first, but that also allows you to learn more about intermediate photography as your skills improve, the D5300 can help you grow your skills.

As long as the D5300 fits in your budget, it's tough to go wrong with this model.
