Excerpt: I was an user of Nikon D3200 until I got this fabulous D5300. Loving my new D5300. It has got beautiful features especially the built in wifi. U can connect to ur phone and take pictures from ur phone and upload the super quality photos in fb, instagram or whatso ever.
Excerpt: I owned a D5100 before I bought this camera. I'm a commercial professional photographer; but I also teach photography at a local art center. My students were intimidated by my pro level cameras, so I thought I would purchase an entry level camera with a kit lens and see what they were seeing.
Excerpt: Going from a D40 to this was a big step but still a breeze. Controls were familiar and easy to find. New features were easy to figure out with the always well documented directions / manual from Nikon. My first trip outside I was asked 5 minutes before a 5 mile race to photograph it!
Excerpt: I bought this as a back-up camera. I've been shooting with the D7000 for years and love it. I had a D200 that had to be retired. The battery does not last as long on the 5300 as the 7000, and there is only a bar that gives power left. Some little things are bothersome.
