For shots that have both very dark and very bright areas, D5300 includes built-in HDR (high-dynamic range); It takes two shots at different exposures and blends them into one amazing image. An exciting collection of built-in effects and filters opens new possibilities for expression: isolate a single color, explore black & white, posterize, even miniaturize. Creative techniques pros spend years mastering are now conveniently at your command.
The D5300 has a highly sensitive 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS image sensor that captures vibrant colors and razor-sharp detail, even in low light. Unlike it's predecessor (the Nikon D5200) the D5300 doesn't employ an Optical Low Pass Filter in front of the sensor meaning even more fine detail is captured than before. The sensor and camera systems are powered by a fast Nikon EXPEED 4 image processor. An intelligent Scene Recognition System compares shots against an onboard database for optimum exposure. The D5300's 39-point wide-area autofocus system is ultra responsive and accurate. It keeps up with fast moving subjects so you can fire away at up to 5 fps. 3D Subject Tracking, works with the 2,016-pixel light meter to lock onto and track subjects with exceptional accuracy. When using the face-priority AF mode in live-view the camera instantly detects and tracks up to 35 faces in a scene.
The D5300 also includes Nikon's latest innovations for creating beautiful videos with virtually no choppiness. The D-Movie mode allows Full HD (1080p) video recording at 60p, 30p, 25p, 24p, 60i & 50i. Full-time-servo AF (AF-F) and subject-tracking AF work together to keep moving subjects sharp and in focus. The camera also has a built-in stereo microphone that can be controlled automatically or manually via 20 incremental steps. Whether you shoot short clips or cinema-style movies, the D5300 makes it easy to take your projects to the next level. Even with all it's capabilities the D5300 is designed for simple, intuitive operation.
