Nikon has announced a new mid-tier DSLR camera, two years later after the D5500 model. The main feature of this model is that it will always stay connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth for instant sharing for all your photos taken — whether it’s food or your kids or the weather changing — thanks to the SnapBridge software.
The D5600 comes with a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor with an ISO range of 100 to 25,600. The top speed burst is five frames per second and autofocus is still handled by a 39 point phase detection with nine cross-type sensors. Video recording is stuck at 1080p (60 frames per second), so if you were hoping for some 4K footage, you’d have to look elsewhere unless you’re ok with having Full HD videos. The D5600 also comes with a 3.2-inch vari-angle touchscreen with 1,036K dots on the rear, and you can use it to set focus points or adjust settings while using the viewfinder, which the predecessor did not offer.
The main difference between the D5600 and the D5500 (other than the vari-angle touchscreen) is that you can use SnapBridge to connect the camera to an Android or iOS device for instant sharing. The connection is through Bluetooth LE (low energy) but the camera can also utilize Wi-Fi when needing to transfer high-resolution photos.
No pricing has been set for the U.S., but for the U.K. pricing starts at £800 with an 18-55-mm kit lens (about $1,000USD) or £990 with an 18-140-mm lens (about $1,230USD). Austrailia, Europe, and Japan will get the camera sometime later this month.
