Nikon Shows Off Compact D5600 DSLR

Nikon introduces two additions to its Coolpix compact, point-and-shoot camera line—the W100 and A300.


Las Vegas, NV—At CES 2017, in addition to a pair of Coolpix point-and-shoot cameras, Nikon took the wraps off the D5600 DSLR. The compact, connected D5600 offers DSLR image quality, the ability to isolate foreground from background, full manual controls, low-light performance and an advanced autofocus system.

The 24.2 megapixel D5600 employs Nikon SnapBridge. This enables users to automatically transfer images from the camera to a compatible smart device for easy sharing.

“The Nikon D5600 is the latest camera in Nikon’s popular D5000 series. It is a camera line that represents a stepping stone for photographers who want to further explore their creative boundaries,” added Kawaura.

“Now with Nikon SnapBridge, users can easily upload and share images with their friends and family, showcasing what and who they love. With the introduction of Nikon’s D5600, Nikon demonstrates our commitment to providing an attainable and highly capable camera option for photographers of all skill levels.”

The camera also provides a suite of creative effects and controls, like time-lapse mode; a touch-screen, vari-angle LCD for shooting from creative angles; and enhanced video functions.

The 24.2MP CMOS sensor helps deliver sharp images with color and clarity not possible with a mobile device. It works with an Expeed 4 image processor to achieve continuous shooting at 5 frames per second (fps). The duo also produce an ISO sensitivity range of 100–25,600 for shooting in low light. The processor also aids in prolonging battery life. In addition, a 39-point autofocus system works to capture fleeting moments and fast-moving subjects.

Furthermore, whether capturing a scene from a child’s perspective or over a crowd, the camera’s 3.2-inch, 1.037K-dot, touch-screen LCD monitor enables vari-angle shooting. There are also special effects modes, manual controls and a time-lapse mode to allow users to expand their creativity.

The D5600 SnapBridge Connection

Nikon SnapBridge was added to make it easier for photographers to share photos wirelessly through Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology. By establishing a constant connection between the D5600 and a smart device, images can be sent from the camera automatically.

SnapBridge also makes it possible to upload images to the cloud (Nikon Image Space) via a compatible smart device. Additionally, SnapBridge connectivity permits users to shoot remotely. They can also transfer movies to a compatible smart device by leveraging the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi connectivity.
