Nikon D5300 Review

Digitaltrends
9 July 2014
  • Conclusion: The D5300 is a very good entry-level DSLR – which in our view are sub $849 kits – and earns our Recommended status. Stills and videos are top notch and the built-in Wi-Fi and GPS are real pluses, and that vari-angle LCD takes it to the next level.
  • Pros: Very good 24MP stills, Superior 1080/60p videos, Built-in Wi-Fi, GPS, Vari-angle lens
  • Cons: Weak 18-55mm kit lens, Noisy at ISOs higher than 1,600, Not the sturdy build of an enthusiast DSLR
