Nikon has unveiled its latest mid-range DSLR, the Nikon D5600 which adds the company’s new SnapBridge technology.
Like the Nikon D3400 released earlier this year, the Nikon D5600 retains many of the features of its predecessor, chief of which is the new Nikon camera’s 24-megapixel CMOS image sensor with no optical low-pass filter (OLPF).
The Nikon D5500 also has no OLPF, which allows it to capture finer details.
The big addition to the Nikon D5600, however, is the company’s clever new SnapBridge technology.
The app is available for both iOS and Android and it allows you to wirelessly transfer your images from the D5600 to your phone, which you can then share across your social media and photo sharing websites.
The Nikon SnapBridge app also allows images to be trimmed automtaically to 2MB to save space on your phone or tablet.
SnapBridge also facilitates controlling the camera remotely via Wi-Fi.
In addition, Nikon has given the D5600 the same Time Lapse Movie function as the D7200, with exposure smoothing to produce better results in changing light conditions.
Other key features of the Nikon D5600 include Nikon’s now familiar vari-angle LCD, allowing photographers to compose from all angles with ease.
The vari-angle screen is also touch sensitive, allowing you to select a focus point or trip the shutter with a simple press of the finger. Nikon has added the ability to scroll thorugh images using touch control in review mode.
Other features include Nikon’s F lens mount and compatibility with a variety of lenses, a native ISO range of 100 to 25,600 and a 39-point TTL phase detection AF system with 9 cross type points.
