The weight of the Nikon D5300 camera is also lighter when compared with his elder brother, weighing only 480 grams for the body only. While the full dimensions measuring 125 x 98 x 76 mm.

Image Quality and Resolution

For guarantee of quality, Nikon’s DX-format sensor pair CMOS 24.2-megapixel on this Nikon D5300, not much different than D5200 series. The difference is, this latest product is no longer equipped with optical low-pas filter, with the goal to produce images that have better detail, although will not be able to prevent moire effect.

With the presence of these processors, this camera is capable of recording Full HD video quality 1920 x 1080 pixels at 60 frames per second (fps).

As for the shooting, the Nikon D5300 can be used up to a speed of 5 fps, with better image results. In addition, the processor also allows for increased efficiency of the battery on this camera, so it can shoot images up to 700 times the shots, more 200 images of the D5200 series.


The presence of features WiFi connection on Nikon D5300 camera has become the most interesting part. Although relatively late when compared to its rivals like Canon and Sony, which had already been buried WiFi feature on its flagship camera, but this is still great Nikon innovation, because the first time carried on his DSLR camera.

Previously, Nikon only provides optional wireless mobile adapter WU 1A form on the camera, to be able to connect to the Internet via WiFi. The way it is less efficient for the mobile photographer, because they are forced to do a plug-in transmitter wireless WiFi before gaining access to the camera. But now, with already a feature designed WiFi on-board, then the Nikon D5300 camera user is also able to use Mobile Wireless Utility application, which allows to take pictures remotely using smartphone devices. Additionally, this camera is also equipped with circuitry that has been integrated GPS feature.
