Nikon extends its range of SnapBridge-compatible cameras with the D5600, an inspiring DX-format DSLR for people who want to explore the creative world of photography. Whether it’s shadow play when the sun’s high, or movies shot from intriguing angles, the new Nikon D5600 is a camera that gives power to fresh ideas.

Image quality is everything and the D5600’s large 24.2 megapixel DX-format image sensor sharply captures fine textures and renders photos and movies with superbly crisp detail. An ISO range of 100-25600, and an expanded ISO sensitivity of 6400 in Night Landscape mode, ensures low-light scenes and difficult lighting situations are handled with ease. Thanks to Nikon’s SnapBridge, users can automatically sync photos to a smart device, as they shoot, and then share the inspiring results right there in the moment. With the D5600, SnapBridge also makes it possible to use the connected smart device to shoot remotely via the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi® capability¹. During viewfinder shooting, the refined touch Fn function offers an intuitive alternative to using the command dial or multi-selector: now photographers can operate the Auto Sensitivity control, as well as selecting the focus point or adjusting other important settings, via the large touchscreen. And a frame advance bar, inherited from Nikon’s professional D5 and D500 cameras, makes it possible to quickly scroll through images in playback mode. For movie shooters, the new Time-Lapse Movie function (inherited from Nikon’s high-end DSLRs) makes it simple to transform slow-moving scenes into dramatic high-speed sequences.
