The major negative first: Seriously Nikon, I am disappointed that you would allow such a flimsy camera body through your quality control. The battery cover clip broke when I was trying to remove it to insert a battery grip. When I looked it was made from cheap plastic. The rest of the body is made from the same cheap plastic and some of the seams don't line up 100% leaving a tiny gap for dust or moisture to get inside. The other annoying thing is I cannot use the 2 second timer delay unless I ...

The Nikon D5300 has removed the optical low-pass filter (OLPF) from its 24MP CMOS sensor which gives it best photo quality both indoor and out door Its 3.2in side-articulated 1.0M-dot tilt/swivel LCD is smart feature of the series.The D5300 features a 39-point AF system, based around the same Multi-Cam 4800DX AF sensor that is used in the D7100, and the same 2016-pixel RGB metering sensor. The D5300 is Nikon's first DSLR to feature built-in Wi-Fi and GPS.

I just got this camera with the kit lens 18-140mm. I think it's one of the best entry-level cameras and even something more than that i'd say. I had to choose between Nikon D7100, Canon 70d and Nikon D5300. In a nutshell, Nikon D7100 has more "pro" features that i wouldn't need. Like built in motor, robust quality, etc. Sure i would love to have the much higher battery capacity and more buttons but i can live with that. No big deal for me. Canon 70D .. well, if i'd prefer videography than ...

The primary reason for me to upgrade from Nikon's D5100 to D5300 was new GPS location recording function. A secondary reason was hoping a sharper image without the low pass filter. With limited use so far, I would not say D5300 is a must have upgrade from D5100. Pro: (1) It is slightly lighter than D5100. I like it but others may not. (2) LCD screen is bigger than D5100. (3) There is an added ...

As my first DSLR this camera is really user friendly.  With a few weeks of understanding the basics of photography prior to getting the camera, I've only shot in Aperture and Shutter priority.  I have it matched with the 18-140. It certainly allows you to set your parameters to your liking, then expand as your knowledge expands. I find it is  easy to manipulate and does not feel cheep but built strong.  I think its a quality product from Nikon. Cant wait to see the full review from Dp.
