    First!

  • Jp

    I hope by next year it will be available for $250 body only, refurbished :-)

    • Andrew

      As the first post, this one (including trailing posts) needs to vanish by Admin hitting the delete button!

  • Yoshi Spendiff

    Pretty much everything you’d want on an entry level camera really.

    • Andrew

      Plus awesome video capability – breaking the 1920 x 1080 progressive, 60 fps (frames per second) barrier.

      • Owen

        Hardly a “broken barrier”.

        • Calibrator

          For Nikon it is…

    • Shaun V

      Did I miss something or only just the D3s,D4, and the new D5300 shoot above ISO 6400?

      • A Stupid Idiot

        You’ve missed a lot of things lol….

        • ashwins

          LOL

  • Andrew

    The Nikon D5300 product video on this page is pretty entertaining. Good marketing!

  • kanghong

    Shame Nikon didn’t get Expeed4/GPS/Wifi for D610 which just announced.

    • Andrew

      If they did there will be an uproar!

      • Radek

        Perhaps they are saving it for next month D620 announcement :-) R>

  • Aldo

    I want integrated weefee and 60p on my d800… I’m jelly.

    • MRGABE

      i’m growing incredibly frustrated with Nikon. Why would this feature be available in an entry-level camera, but not included on the 4 cameras priced higher than it? What sense does this make?! Can someone please explain this nonsense to me? I don’t want to hear about marketing strategy. It’s not about that at this point.

      • Boloknimo

        bolok man kaw siguro.. amo gani bag-o ini!… English: its new dude that’s why!, wait for the latest of the pros.

      • Taggart

        It sounds like the 1080p60 movie mode is only possible with the new Expeed 4 processor, and that processor is only in the D5300. All new Nikon DSLRs from here out should have this feature.

        As for WiFi – yeah, there’s no technical reason for that not to be included.

        • A Stupid Idiot

          Money. adapters cost money.

  • koenshaku

    I’m sure those shots of on the 58mm 1.4 were not on a D5300 lol. I can’t wait to see reviews for that lens.

  • Kenny

    Nikon should not have wasted their resources and development time for entry-level DSLR. This kind of an entry-level DSLR is no longer needed for the market now. Most people will choose lightweight mirrorless camera surely. All of people I know and my friends didn’t buy entry-level DLSR at all.

    • visionaer

      Check the Amazon Best seller lists f.i. ;)

      • Prevedovich

        If someone would want to buy a small and lightweight camera mirorrless is the best choice. I do not see any advantages of D5300 over Panasonic LX7 or Olympus E-M5. They are perfect travel cameras – small optics, sensor based stabilization (the best in the world) and focus peaking (LX7).

        Nikon and Canon sell brand, but not cameras. People will buy them even when they will produce crap in the <1000 segment.

    • McGraffix

      Research is always best done from the armchair, looking around and writing down what you see. Even better: go stand by your living room window and look outside for an expanded data-pool.
      Can’t wait for the next publication with your findings…

  • disqus_djvSLlZGgG

    every time nikon wants to raise the price of a camera they will add a number to the model name and then pay the camera review web sites to go on and on about how ‘it isn’t a replacement it is an entirely new niche between the dxxxx and dxxx”

    • enesunkie

      What, do mean the D7000 really was the replacement for the D90.
      Damn you Nikon! I’ve been waiting for the replacement of the D90 all this time for no good reason? It’s got too many pixels and I don’t need HD Video.

    • Calibrator

      Please change your Disqus log-in Name to “Captain Obvious”.
      Thank you!

    • stoooopid

      The reviews I read said pretty much exactly that it was a replacement to D5200 with a few useful features added and the olpf removed.

      • disqus_djvSLlZGgG

        don’t forget the expeed 4 processor that they added for absolutely no reason, considering the file size is not larger and the shooting speed not significantly increased.

        • KnightPhoto

          EXPEED4 enables the 1080P/60.

          It will be interesting to compare DxO D5300 testing on stills to the 5200 and 7100 to see if EXPEED4 does help with image quality in any way!

          I think the other question I haven’t seen verified is whether the D5300 has the Toshiba or the Sony sensor.

        • stoooopid

          well, yes they did add expeed 4. did they need to – well probably not for handling file size. But maybe it has some high iso benefits. Lets wait for the reviews and see. D5300 could have better IQ than D7100. If I remember right, DxO rated the D5100 IQ higher than the D7000 (if you put any faith in that).

    • A Stupid Idiot

      Oh, and you’ve seen how it’s smaller, and the sensor/af does NOTHING differently than its predecessor?

      Show us this evidence, please, before you open your big idiotic mouth about it.

      • disqus_djvSLlZGgG

        it must be nice to be bored enough to insult complete strangers on the internet.

        • ashwins

          True disqus, it’s so sad to see all those pubertal replies.

  • http://www.davidkasman.com/ David Kasman

    Does this new, entry level, Nikon mark the end of sub 24MP and low pass filters for all future Nikon DSLRs?

    • stoooopid

      We will see. Nikon is rumored to have a D1000 in the works. A new entry level (below D3200) camera similar to Canan SL1. If this body has the 24mp sensor (I suspect it will) then yes, no more sub-24mp sensors. I personally am very interested to see what Nikon comes up with in the D1000. If they put phase detect for live view (like 1 series cams) it could be a very interesting product.

  • stoooopid

    Wow. Seems like a lot of hate on here for Nikon and this 5300. People still buy these cameras. Selling the crap out of these cameras is what funds Nikon to build the D4x, D5, (and maybe D400?), exotic lenses, and so on. So yeah, it isn’t a D400, or a D4x – but get over it. If you don’t like this camera – then it isn’t for you. Move on. This is a nice camera that will sell well and fund Nikon to possibly build what you want in the future.

    • A Stupid Idiot

      This is an AMAZING entry level camera. 7 years ago 6MP and 3 FPS was AMAZING as shit.

      Now it sounds like crap.

      AND it has an articulate LCD.

      This camera is godly.

  • DaveyJ

    It should be obvious to anyone on this thread that each new successive camera ESPECIALLY the lower end ones are improved in technology. The higher end users of D4s and the like seem to not WANT or RESENT features newcomers demand. So the D5300 makes sense to me and I believe will sell well. The higher end “bragging rights” cameras would escalate greatly in price if Nikon fails with this offering.

    I would say looking at the specs and having used the D3200 and D7100 now for about a year with very useful photos taken under sometimes very demanding field conditions I think this D5300 has a lot to offer! I am sure this new 58 f1.4G lens will photograph and test very well and be a hit with a smaller number of buyers. So that in its own right should be a success. But it is a lens I probably would not buy. I have shifted to zoom lens based on simple conditions I shoot under and the possibility of destroying or loosing a camera and those more modest cameras and lens are very, very good.

    The threat to all of us on NR I feel is smart phone photos maybe but even there I think we all realize there are more photos being taken now than ever before. Actually I think what we should lust for is not gear but that the grand places and scenes stay grand and scenic.

    • stoooopid

      Agreed. There is a threat from camera phones. The threat is this: all those people who would have purchased point and shoot cameras are no longer doing so because there cell phone is “good enough”. These point and shoots were the cash cow of Nikon, Canon and others. Now the market is quickly eroding. Point and shoots will be gone in a few years. This will have the effect of making all photography equipment more expensive to make up for lost revenue.

  • Olde Dog

    Anyone found a value for the (RAW) buffer capacity?

    • A Stupid Idiot

      Raw buffer doesn’t matter unless you’re an incredible idiot.

      • Dpablo unfiltered

        Would that be more than a stupid idiot?

  • Thomas Schwarz

    Wake up Nikon,

    reanimate your 1 Series with something really cool.

    The times of bulky plastic DSLRs with bulky plastic lenses is over.

    The 39 AF Module still cannot get eyes sharp on portraits < F2.5, it needs an fast face detection !!! the times of submirror and single phase AF points are over.
    You did it so great on the 1 Series, best AF for people and kids i have ever seen.

    Put a better Sensor inside and design a really cool Nikon V3 !

  • Bieter dohlen

    Admin, in the comparison I found a mistake, also the D5200 has the green marked special effect modes.

    Where have the creative engineers gone at Nikon R&D?

    • http://nikonrumors.com/ Nikon Rumors

      I took the details from Nikon USA, maybe they just did not mention it.
