The Nikon D5600's fully articulated touchscreen allows intuitive shooting and composition from different angles.
Nikon's D5600 has everything you need to start taking photos that stand out from the rest. This powerful compact DSLR captures sharp, detailed images in all kinds of lighting. It gives you tons of room to grow as a photographer. Start out shooting in Auto mode, and as you develop your skills you can use this camera's intuitive controls to express your own creativity.
The D5600's fast autofocus system features 3D subject tracking and excels at capturing fast-moving subjects. This responsive DSLR is capable of high-speed continuous shooting at up to five frames per second, so you can capture sharply focused fast-action sequences.
By far the best thing about smartphone photography is the ability to share your memories in an instant. Nikon makes it easy to share gorgeous high-resolution photos taken with the D5600 right from your phone. SnapBridge technology with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) lets you transfer your shots instantly to your compatible mobile device for quick, convenient sharing.
Nikon picked the perfect starter lenses to go with this capable camera. The 18-55mm lens gives you the flexibility to shoot expressive portraits with dreamy blurred backgrounds, sweeping landscapes with the entire scene in focus, and everything in between. Built-in vibration reduction minimizes image blur and camera shake when shooting stills or video in low light without a tripod.
The 70-300mm lens picks up where the first lens leaves off, giving you the extra reach to capture distant action. Both lenses include built-in pulse motors for lightning-fast, whisper-quiet autofocus - great for shooting smooth video sequences.

Best camera you can buy for the money hands down.
Great camera. The bag has pretty decent storage space.
For the amateur enthusiast, this is the camera to have in your arsenal! Easily used to take fantastic pictures with the Auto-Settings and flexible enough to allow you to dial-in that perfect setting to reach the next level. An easy choice if you are getting into the Digital SLR space for the first time or if you are adding onto your existing camera bag. Crutchfield made it so very simple to purchase and their helpful staff made sure that I had everything I needed to get going as soon as my device arrived!

Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD Monitor: The Nikon D5600 has a 3.2" TFT touchscreen LCD monitor featuring approximately 1,036,800 dots and an 11-level adjustable brightness (-5 to +5). The Vari-angle monitor opens outward 180°, and can be rotated 180° forward or 90° backward for high- and low-angle photography. The large LCD monitor has large fonts with easy-to-view menus. The touchscreen allows you to touch where you want to focus and shoot, as well as pinch to zoom, and swipe to navigate menus and view photos. The monitor can display shooting information such as shutter speed, aperture, and number of exposures remaining as well as the settings currently applied.
Live View: The camera features Live View, which allows you to frame your photographs in the monitor instead of the viewfinder. When the Live View switch is rotated, the mirror is raised and the view through the lens will be displayed in the monitor. The subject will no longer be visible in the viewfinder. The Live View display will show up to 13 items, including shooting, focus, and AF-area modes, along with other status indicators. You can opt to hide many of the indicators, or overlay a framing grid in the monitor.
Optical Viewfinder: The D5600 uses a fixed eye-level pentamirror single-lens reflex viewfinder with a built-in diopter adjustment to set the viewfinder to your personal eyesight (with or without glasses). The viewfinder's coverage area is approximately 95% horizontal and vertical. During self-timer or remote control operation when your eye does not cover the viewfinder eyepiece, stray light may enter the eyepiece and affect the exposure when the image is captured. To prevent this, you can use the optional DK-5 eyepiece cap to cover the eyepiece.
Image Sensor: The D5600 features a 23.5mm x 15.6mm DX-format CMOS image sensor with a total pixel count of approximately 24.78 million pixels and an effective pixel count of approximately 24.2 million.
Dust Reduction System: The image sensor is equipped with a low-pass filter to remove dust or dirt on the sensor. You can set the camera to clean the image sensor automatically at startup, or at shut down, or both. It can also be set to turn the auto cleaning function off.
Compatible Lenses: The D5600 is equipped with the standard Nikon F bayonet mount with AF contacts. DX-format-compatible lenses are recommended. If Nikon FX-format lenses are mounted on the camera, the equivalent focal length is approximately 1.5x that of DX lenses (a 50mm FX lens has an equivalent focal length of 75mm on this camera). The AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR and AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED zoom lenses are included in this 18-55 VR + 70-300 kit.
Recording Media: The camera records images on SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards, including ultra high-speed UHS-I cards. Cards rated Speed Class 6 or 10, or UHS Speed Class U1, are recommended for movie recording. The camera has no internal memory, and no SD cards are included with the camera.
Still Image Formats: The D5600 records still images in JPEG and NEF (RAW) formats. You can choose from the following Image Quality and Image Size settings:
|Quality Option |
|Available Image Sizes||Description|
|NEF (RAW)||6000 x 4000||Raw 12-bit or 14-bit data, compressed|
|NEF + JPEG||6000 x 4000||Two images are recorded, one NEF image and one JPEG image. You can choose from fine, normal, or basic compression for the JPEG.|
6000 x 4000 |
M: 4496 x 3000
S: 2992 x 2000
|JPEG-baseline compliant with fine (1:4), normal (1:8) or basic (1:16) compression|
Movie Recording: The D5600 records movies in High Definition in 16:9 aspect ratio. Movies are recorded in MOV file format, with H.264/MPEG-4 advanced video coding, and Linear PCM audio, recorded by the built-in stereo microphone. You can record in High Quality or Normal Quality modes. The maximum file size for individual movies is 4 GB. Movies can be recorded in the following frame sizes and rates:
|Frame Size||Frame Rate||Maximum Clip Length|
|High Quality||Normal Quality|
|1920 x 1080||60p||10 min||20 min|
|30p||20 min||29 min 59 sec|
|1280 x 720||60p|
SnapBridge: The Nikon SnapBridge app provides a camera interface on your smartphone or tablet. Through the app you can view photos on the camera's memory card, manually or automatically transfer photos and videos from the camera, and control the camera remotely. You can also use the app to add photo information or text to uploaded photos. Time and location data from the smart device can be loaded to the photo data of any still images or movies taken by the camera. The SnapBridge app is available for your Android (4.4 and up) or iOS (8.4 or later) device.
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) / Wi-Fi: The D5600 has built-in Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11 b/g) wireless technologies for connecting the camera to your smartphone or tablet through the SnapBridge app (see above). A Wi-Fi connection is recommended for movies and other large-volume uploads. When Android devices with NFC (Near-Field Communication) are used, you can pair it with the camera by touching the camera's N-Mark, located on the right side.
Focus Modes: The camera uses the Nikon Multi-CAM 4800 autofocus sensor module with TTL phase detection. You can choose from the following autofocus and manual focus modes:
AF Assist Illuminator: The built-in AF assist illuminator enables the camera to focus even when the subject is poorly lit. This feature will light automatically to assist the autofocus operation when the shutter release button is pressed halfway. It has an operating range of 1'-8" to 9'-10".
AF-Area Modes: The D5600 offers a choice of four focus areas that together cover a wide area of the frame. The AF-area mode determines how the focus area is selected and what happens if the subject moves out of the selected focus area while the camera is still focusing. You can choose one of the following AF-area modes:
Release Modes: The camera can take pictures one at a time, or continuously as long as the shutter release button is pressed. You can also take photos using the self-timer or with an optional remote control. The camera allows you to choose from the following Release Modes:
Nikon 3D Color Matrix Metering II: The D5600's 3D Color Matrix Metering II evaluates each scene for brightness, color, contrast, size and position of shadows and highlights, selected focus area and camera-to-subject distance, comparing that information against an onboard database of more than 30,000 actual photographic scenes. The result delivers instantly and precisely determined exposures for each scene, even in challenging lighting conditions.
Metering: You can choose from the following Metering Modes to determine how the camera sets exposure:
Shooting Modes: The Mode Dial on the top of the camera offers a wide choice of shooting modes, organized in 4 groups:
Exposure Compensation: You can alter the exposure from the value suggested by the camera, making pictures brighter or darker. You can adjust the exposure from -5.0 to +5.0 EV in 1/3 EV or 1/2 EV steps in the P, S, A, and M modes.
White Balance: White balance is used to preserve natural colors under different types of lighting. When the camera is set to one of the exposure modes (P, S, A, M), you can choose one of the following white balance options: Auto, Incandescent, Fluorescent (7 types), Direct Sunlight, Flash, Cloudy, Shade, and Preset Manual.
ISO Sensitivity: ISO Sensitivity is the digital equivalent of film speed. When lighting is poor, the camera will automatically increase sensitivity, permitting faster exposures, and minimizing blur caused by inadvertent camera movement, up to a maximum equivalent of ISO 6400. You can manually select from ISO settings 100 to 25600, with incremental steps of 1/3EV.
High Dynamic Range (HDR): The High Dynamic Range (HDR) function combines two exposures to form a single image that captures a wide range of tones from shadows to highlights, even with high-contrast subjects. You can select from the following options: Auto, Extra High, High, Normal, Low, or Off.
Active D-Lighting: Nikon's Active D-Lighting can correct exposure issues due to difficult lighting conditions instantly and automatically while you shoot. Active D-Lighting preserves details in highlights and shadows, creating photographs with natural contrast. You can select Auto, Extra High, High, Normal, Low, and Off.
Interval Timer Photography: You can take photographs automatically at preset intervals. When setting up the interval timer shooting, you can choose the following parameters:
Note: Use of a tripod is recommended during interval timer shooting.
Built-in Flash: The D5600 has a built-in flash that will pop up automatically in low light situations, or can be manually raised with a button release. The camera offers the following flash sync modes depending upon the shooting mode selected: Auto, Auto with Red-eye Reduction, Auto Slow Sync, Auto Slow Sync with Red-eye Reduction, Rear-curtain Sync, Rear-curtain + Slow Sync, Fill Flash, and Flash Off.
Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS): Nikon's Creative Lighting System (CLS) offers improved communication between the camera and compatible external flash units for improved flash photography. The camera's Accessory Shoe is compatible with the following optional Speedlights: SB-5000, SB-910, SB-900, SB-800, SB-700, SB-600, SB-400, and SB-300.
Flash Compensation: In P, S, A, and M modes, the flash compensation can be used to increase or reduce flash output from the level chosen by the camera's flash control system. The flash exposure compensation can be set to values between -3 EV (darker) and +3 EV (brighter) in increments of 1/3 EV.
Picture Controls: When the camera is set to one of the P, S, A, or M modes, you can choose from the following Picture Control options: Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait, Landscape and Flat.
Custom Settings: The D5600 features a custom settings menu that allows you to customize the camera settings to suit your individual preferences. There are six main setting areas:
Two Lens Kit: This package includes the following lenses: the AF-P DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR, and the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED.

Looked like best bang for the buck. Camera accepts my old Nikkor 50mm lens. Also Nemo was a good helper. [ Gary Jun 06, 2018 ]
Great reviews, excellent features for the novice photog [ William Apr 24, 2018 ]
This camera had great reviews for picture quality and some nice features as well, including the Bluetooth connectivity. [ EUGENE M Dec 09, 2017 ]
because it a step up from my old model without the complication of a professional camera [ Kam Sep 18, 2017 ]
Finally stepping up to a dslr and this is the best bang for the buck! [ Shaun Mar 25, 2017 ]
My answer to this question would be not very effective, in terms of traditional Wi-Fi connectivity. WiFi on this camera is used in tandem with Bluetooth to connect to the SnapBridge app. I guess there are certain things that WiFi can handle that Bluetooth cannot. It does not allow you to connect it to a home network for file transfers, which I was hoping it would do. [ Ronald Nov 14, 2017 ]
The Nikon D5600 has built-in Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11 b/g) wireless technology for connecting the camera to your smartphone or tablet through the SnapBridge app (available for your Android OS 4.4+ or iOS 8.4+ device). Through the app you can view photos on the camera's memory card, manually or automatically transfer photos and videos from the camera, and control the camera remotely. You can also use the app to add photo information or text to uploaded photos. For more details or to discuss further, please contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Thanks! :) [ Larry Nov 07, 2017 ] Staff
