Nikon has officially announced its latest mid-range D-SLR camera, the D5600. The D5600 will feature Snapbridge functionality, expanded ISO sensitivity, Nikon’s own low power Bluetooth connectivity to transfer data to smartphones, and an in-camera time lapse movie function.
The Nikon D5600 uses the same, 24.2-megapixel camera APS-C CMOS sensor. It is also retains the same Expeed 4 image processor, along with native ISO support of up to ISO 25600, a 3.2-inch touchscreen LCD with resolution of 1,037,000 dots, and the much-lauded Multi-CAM 4800DX 39-point AF module with through the lens (TTL) phase detection and nine cross-type-AF points. In-camera time lapse movie shooting joins all of this, and Nikon has added exposure smoothing here to make up for imbalance in exposure in frames where light changes naturally. In the D5600, touchscreen functionality has also been improved.
However, Nikon haven’t disclosed the prices, but, you can expect more than Rs.55,000, as the price for the body and, on the other hand, lens kits from Rs.60,000 onward. Nikon will be selling its DSLR with three lens kit options- 18-55mm AF-P f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, 18-140mm AF-S f/3.5-5.6G ED VR single lens kit, a dual lens kit with the former lens, and a 70-300mm AF-P f/4.5-6.3G ED VR telephoto lens. The Nikon D5600 kits will be available in India from late November. The camera has not been introduced in the United States of America, yet.
“We are proud to bring forward the latest product in the preferred D5000-series to our customers. The camera embodies this sentiment and is presented with the new SnapBridge function, expanded ISO sensitivity, and in-camera time-lapse movie function, all fitted into a compact and lightweight D-SLR body with a vari-angle touch screen LCD monitor,” said Kazuo Ninomia, Managing Director, Nikon India.
