Meet the first in an exciting new generation of Wi-Fi® enabled, ultra-high-resolution Nikon HDSLRs: the D5300. With built-in Wi-Fi for photo sharing to your smartphone or tablet, GPS and mapping, a cutting edge 24.2-megapixel image sensor, an extra-large swiveling Vari-angle LCD and more, D5300 brings an outstanding new level of image quality and capabilities in a compact, ergonomic design. Pair it with any NIKKOR lens—like the outstanding AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR kit lens—and unleash the full potential of its innovative image sensor. Your photos will be richer, truer to life than most photos you’ve seen. HD video will have a stunning cinematic look, a level of sharpness and clarity that ignites on ultra-high-resolution tablets, laptops and TVs. And the first time you use your smartphone or tablet to instantly share photos from the D5300, you’ll realize the game has truly changed.
Your life in breathtaking clarity
The sharpness, clarity and richness of colors in the D5300’s photos and Full HD videos is nothing short of astounding. A recent design innovation allows the D5300’s 24.2-megapixel DX format CMOS image sensor* to capture pure, lifelike images. Enlarge or crop your photos without losing any sharpness or detail—a feat not possible with most smartphones. Pair that capability with any exceptional NIKKOR lens, marvels of clarity and sharpness in their own right, and you’ll experience the image quality your memories deserve.

Take it on every outing
Don’t let the small size of the D5300 fool you—it delivers big-camera quality and capabilities. Like all Nikon DSLRs, the D5300 was designed for ergonomics—every button and dial was carefully placed for comfortable, efficient operation. Yet it’s big in all the right places, like its 3.2-inch swiveling Vari-angle LCD and its 24.2-megapixel DX-format CMOS image sensor. You’ll take the D5300 on every adventure, which means you’ll bring home more stunning views of your travels.
Focus where you want it
Whether shooting stationary subjects, candid photos, high-speed action or Full HD video, the D5300 keeps subjects in focus. Its 39-point high-density autofocus system with 9 cross-type sensors quickly locks onto your subject, and Nikon’s unique 3D-tracking uses the 2,016-pixel RGB sensor to recognize and follow it across the frame.
Storytelling at your fingertips
Bring the image quality the D5300 produces—softly blurred backgrounds, tack-sharp details, vibrant colors—to dazzling 1080p Full HD videos. In Live View, Nikon’s full-time autofocus follows your subject and keeps it sharp. A built-in stereo microphone adds high-fidelity sound to your videos, or you can add Nikon’s optional accessory ME-1 stereo microphone for the highest quality sound possible.
Get creative with Image Effects
Make a single vivid color pop in a black & white photo, turn a landscape into a toy model, shoot portraits that look like paintings, make your D5300 behave like a toy camera (new) and more, then share your creations with your smartphone or tablet.
Embrace highlights and shadows
Built-in HDR automatically combines two photos into one highly dynamic image, and new subject-based D-Lighting automatically brightens shadowy areas on your subjects—great for portraits.
Define your own style
The D5300’s easy to use Picture Controls let you alter your color palette and add a personal touch with six settings available; Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait and Landscape—customize the look and feel of your photos and HD videos.
