Nikon unveils D5300 and new low-light lens
Nikon's DSLR inventory now adds the 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor D5300 -- Nikon’s first DSLR with built-in Wi-Fi and GPS.
The announcement also included the new AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G – a prime lens with a hefty price tag and roots leading back to the lendary Noct NIKKOR 58mm f/1.2 lens. That "noct" is just what you think it is—it means shooting at night (as in nocturnal).
Here are the highlights:
• This is Nikon’s first DSLR with built-in Wi-Fi and GPS which provides instant photo sharing to smartphones or tablets. It also offers the option of geotagging image captures.
• Cutting-edge 24.2 MP DX-format CMOS sensor produces crisp and lifelike images
• Extremely compact and lightweight with an ergonomically designed body.
• Sports a 3.2-inch swiveling Vari-angle LCD display to help frame fun and creative shooting perspectives
• 39-point AF system with 9 cross-type sensors is able to capture moving subjects with ease
• Fast continuous shooting at 5 frames-per-second (fps)
• Full 1080p HD Video with built-in stereo microphone for fleeting moments
• Intuitive Scene Recognition System selects precise and accurate settings for every shot
• Features a variety of Image Effects and In-camera editing tools
• Available in October 2013 in Black, Red and Gray for $1,399.95 MSRP (alongside the AF-S NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens) or $799.95 USD MSRP (body only)
