Nikon D5600

 

Nikon's latest intermediate-level DSLR is put to the test. Nikon D5600.

Very good image quality ; Small and lightweight ; Excellent touchscreen and general handling ; SnapBridge makes light work of image transfer

Touchscreen can’t be disabled ; JPEGs can be a bit on the dark side

The D5600 is equipped with a slightly larger-than-average 3.2-inch rear display – all its main rivals sport 3-inch monitors. This is of the side-hinged, vari-angle design that allows you to position the screen at just about any angle you can think of,...

Nikon D5600 review: More connected than ever

 

In the end, the D5600 is all about the images. It's capable of taking the sort of images you really do want to share, even with the standard kit lens.

Impressive image quality - especially in low light ; Big and vibrant tilt LCD touchscreen ; Small body with comfortable grip ; Exccellent battery life ; Seamless auto-upload of web-ready images to phone

Video AF remains behind competitors ; Not many reasons to pick this over cheaper predecessor ; Feature set doesn't stand out

Given the small scale of the Nikon D5600, it sometimes feels almost like using a mirrorless camera. Its ergonomic design ensures single-handed use is no problem, while the large touchscreen makes it a capable piece of kit for newcomers and enthusiast...

Nikon D5600 review

 

Modest rather than sweeping updates

Excellent image quality ; Comfy handgrip ; Decent AF system ; Touchscreen interface

SnapBridge needs work ; Only 1080p video ; Pricey compared to rivals

Despite only being a very modest upgrade to the D5500, the D5600 is still a very capable advanced entry-level DSLR. This is a camera which is very much a sum of its parts rather than having one single standout feature. There's a high-resolution 24.2MP...

Nikon D5600 review: A mild update to an already excellent camera

 

A subtle update, but the Nikon D5600 is a strong all-rounder at a reasonable price.

Outstanding image quality ; Sophisticated autofocus ; Long battery life

Some functions are awkward to access ; Slow shot-to-shot times in live view mode

The D5600’s 39-point autofocus sensor beats the 750D’s 19-point sensor, although the recently announced EOS 800D (review coming soon) ups this to 45 points. Ultimately there’s no clear victor so if you’re already a Nikon user, or tempted to become one,...

Nikon D5600 review

 

Nikon sprinkles a tiny pinch of update dust on the D5600, a minor improvement to its small but excellent and inexpensive D5500 dSLR.

The Nikon D5600 delivers excellent photo quality for its price class, as well as performance that can keep up with your kids and pets.

It may be too small for people with larger hands and it turns off the self-timer after every shot in single-shot mode.

Lightweight and compact with everything the family photographer needs, the Nikon D5600 maintains its position as a great general-purpose dSLR for its price class.

The 24.2MP Nikon DX format D5600 features Nikon’s SnapBridge, which can be used for remote shooting and to automatically transfer images from the camera to a compatible smartphone or tablet using Bluetooth. Video can also be transferred via the...

Nikon D5600 review

  (Rating Hidden)

Replacing the 18-month old D5500, Nikon's latest DSLR camera is the mid-level Nikon D5600. It features a plethora of new sharing and connectivity options, new touchscreen functionality, and a time-lapse feature, but what is the photo quality like? We...

Nikon D5600 DSLR Review

 

We review the new Nikon D5600, with built-in Bluetooth, NFC and Wi-Fi, it's designed to be the connected Digital SLR.

The Nikon D5600 offers a larger than normal 3.2inch touch-screen, and a surprisingly compact DSLR camera body. The body is ergonomic despite the small size, with a large hand-grip. The 24-megapixel sensor features no optical low-pass filter , which...

Nikon D5600 review

 

Nikon's entry-level D5600 still shoots impressive images for the right price.

Very good 24MP stills ; Fast autofocus ; Bluetooth (SnapBridge) ; Superior battery life ; Small, lightweight body

Contrast-detection-only live view AF ; Video limited to 1080p/60 ; Most specs unchanged from D5500

If you’re ready to move to an interchangeable lens camera from an older point-and-shoot or a phone, the Nikon D5600 is certainly a solid choice. It’s easy to operate and still image quality is truly excellent — at least, when paired with a good lens....

Before you go dirt cheap, consider spending a bit more on the Nikon D5600

 

There are only some minor tweaks over the almost 2-year-old D5500, but it remains a great, slightly-more-than-cheap dSLR.

The Nikon D5600 delivers excellent photo quality for its price class, as well as performance that can keep up with your kids and pets.

It may be too small for people with larger hands and it turns off the self-timer after every shot in single-shot mode.

Lightweight and compact with everything the family photographer needs, the Nikon D5600 maintains its position as a great general-purpose dSLR for its price class.
