SnapBridge connectivity even lets you use your smart device to shoot remotely. However you use SnapBridge, you can continue to use your smart device without interruption, and you don’t need to worry about draining your camera’s battery. Your perspective is unique: SnapBridge lets you share it right there in the moment.
A Nikon DSLR: when photography really feels like photography
The exceptionally portable D5600’s faultless ergonomics make it easy to immerse yourself in the experience of photography. Create eye-catching compositions thanks to the high-quality optical viewfinder, which delivers an incredibly clear view through the lens—when you want to focus on your subject, shooting through the viewfinder lets you block out sunlight and distractions. You can also maintain a more stable hold on the camera when using a telephoto lens. The well-placed command dial and multi-selector make it easy to change settings as you shoot. And you can even use the touch Fn function to adjust settings via the large touchscreen without taking your eye away from the viewfinder. With a body that weighs just 415 g (approximately)², and a monocoque carbon-reinforced shell, this camera is lightweight and tough enough to take anywhere. From your latest travel odyssey to busy urban streets, once you curve your fingers around this camera’s deep grip and start shooting you won’t want to put it down.
Versatile, compact zoom lens
The Nikon 18-140mm f3.5-5.6 AF-S G ED VR DX-format lens sports Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilisation and ultra-fast Auto Focusing (AF-S) technology. From capturing wide-angle landscapes to distant wildlife, the lens offers a versatile 7.8x zoom range that can be used to for stills and videos. Nikon's quiet VR technology reduces image blur caused by camera shake and allows for handheld shooting at dusk and in poorly lit interiors. With a compact and lightweight build, this is a great walkabout lens for entry-level users who want the flexibility to shoot a wide variety of subjects without the hassle of changing lenses.
Catch what you see, the way you see it: vari-angle touchscreen
Now you can shoot with a DSLR that sees the world like you do—even when you see it from a completely different angle. Simply flip, tilt, or rotate the large 8.1 cm (3.2 in) vari-angle touchscreen to compose perfect shots: you’ll get a clear view whether the camera is up high, down low, or extended away from your body. You tap the touchscreen to focus and shoot, just like a smartphone. And you can use touch controls during viewfinder shooting or image playback. During viewfinder shooting, the touch Fn function offers an intuitive alternative to using the command dial or multi-selector: now you can select the focus point or adjust other important settings, like Aperture, Auto Sensitivity and more, via the large touchscreen. During image playback, a frame advance bar inherited from Nikon’s professional D5 and D500 cameras lets you quickly scroll through images. And you can pinch to zoom in and quickly trim an image.
Miss nothing: Speed and precision to capture every idea
When you notice everything, you want a camera that misses nothing. Whether you’re in the midst of the action or shooting from a distance, the D5600’s razor-sharp AF system will lock onto your subject and keep it in focus. The AF system’s 39 focus points cover a wide area of the frame, and nine highly accurate cross-type sensors in the central area deliver enhanced accuracy. When you shoot in Live View, the camera’s contrast-detect AF keeps you right on target. And when that perfect opportunist shot appears out of nowhere, this camera can shoot at a swift five frames per second to nail the moment with perfect precision.
Movies you'll be proud to share: D-Movie and time-lapse movie
Record smooth, finely detailed Full HD video clips you’ll be proud to share. D-Movie enables recording at frame rates of up to 50p/60p. Continuous Live View autofocus (Full-time-servo AF mode) keeps your subjects sharp even when the action is fast. And if you shoot with an AF-P NIKKOR kit lens, footage will be practically free of drive noise thanks to the lens’ built-in stepping motor. Time-Lapse Movie, inherited from Nikon’s advanced DSLRs, transforms scenes of slow-moving clouds, or a crowded street, into dramatic high-speed sequences. And movies shot with the D5600 are easy to share via the camera’s SnapBridge connection.
The artistic touch: in-camera creative tools
Maximize the impact of your photos and movies with a range of in-camera creative tools. Easily make every image express more with a range of special effects: you can preview your chosen effect in Live View, and adjust its intensity before you shoot. For even greater control over the look and feel of your images, shoot using Picture Controls to fine-tune settings like contrast and saturation. The Flat Picture Control makes it easier to perfect your movies in post-production. And you can even create and save a custom Picture Control for a characteristic that's all your own. A range of effects in the retouch menu lets you quickly heighten the atmosphere or change the mood of your photos in-camera. And SnapBridge connectivity means you can take advantage of your smartphone or tablet to continue the creative process using your favourite apps.
Nikkor lenses: legendary optical performance
The D5600 is compatible with the full range of DX-format NIKKOR lenses. No matter how your photographer’s eye sees the world, there’s a NIKKOR lens that shares your vision. Use a fast prime lens for beautiful background blur, a telephoto lens for distant subjects, or a wide-angle lens for dramatic composition. You can also shoot with a large selection of FX-format lenses.
Expand your photographic capabilities: Nikon accessories
The D5600 is part of Nikon’s endlessly-expandable DSLR system, which can support every photographic idea you have. When you want to explore the creative potential of light, Nikon’s acclaimed Speedlights make it easy. These portable flash units let you diffuse or soften light, add impact to daylight images, enhance twilight shots, or expose subject detail in backlit situations. For maximum portability, use the compact SB-500 Speedlight, which boasts an onboard high-intensity LED that’s ideal for close-up still images, or movie recording. When you want to achieve high-quality sound recordings, use the optional ME-1 Stereo Microphone. No matter where you want your photography to go, Nikon has the tools to get you there.
