Nikon adds built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS to D5300 Digital SLR
Thursday, October 17, 2013 @ 6:02am

Nikon is updating its consumer-level Digital SLR range, by upgrading the D5200. The new D5300 retains much of the design and workings of its predecessors, but still manages to introduce some changes to the product line, with the most notable being that Wi-Fi and GPS are built into the camera instead of taking the form of extra attachments.



Aside from being able to use Nikon's mobile app, the DX-format camera uses a 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor with the company's latest Expeed 4 image processor, with the removal of the optical low pass filter allowing for improved detail compared to earlier models. Covering an ISO range of between 100 and 25,600, it includes a 2,016-pixel RGB metering system to adjust the 39-point autofocus, exposure, and white balance. Capable of shooting at five frames per second, it includes a 3.2-inch Vari-angle LCD monitor, can record 1080p video at 60fps with stereo sound, and is compatible with the company's existing NIKKOR lens line. Shipping later this month in black, red, and gray color options, the Nikon D5300 will cost $1,400 when bundled with an AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens, or $800 for the body alone.
