Nikon D5600 Review


The Nikon D5600 is a new 24.2 megapixel DX-format DSLR camera with no optical low-pass filter (OLPF). The D5600 replaces the 18-month-old D5500 and offers several new features. SnapBridge compatibility utilises Bluetooth low energy technology to let...

The Nikon D5600 is an incredibly modest update of the 18-month-old D5500, essentially adding Snapbridge connectivity, a deeper handgrip and a handful of other non-essential features that collectively hardly set the world on fire. While the D5600...

Nikon D5600 Review


Overall, the updated Nikon D5600 does not bring a lot of new features to the table compared to the D5500 predecessor, which debuted in early 2015. Then again, there wasn't a lot of room for improvement; the D5500 was already a great camera. The biggest...

Sensitivity Sensitivities on offer in the Nikon D5600 range from ISO 100 to 25,600 equivalents. That's the same range as was available from the D5300 and D5500. However, the entire range is available by default. That differs from the D5300, where...

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...

Testbericht: Nikon D5600


Mit der D5600 stellte Nikon Ende letzten Jahres das Nachfolgemodell der D5500 vor. Viele Änderungen bei der gut ausgestatteten Hobby-DSLR, die sich oberhalb der kürzlich von uns getesteten D3400 einordnet, gibt es nicht. So unterstützt die D5600 nun...
