  1. I love my Nikon camera though it is not anything like the D5300 

    Now this this one is on my want wish list big time!!! I can just imagine how much richer my pictures of my hikes and waterfalls will be with this SLR camera.

    Breathtaking in its beauty and technology.Built in GPS wonderful

  2. Hi There

    I am currently travelling around Australia and have taken some amazing photos on my Oppo phone, It takes awesome photos but as I have found out the quality is not up to the standard to make them a sell-able item, much to my disappointment. So I am now in the market for a camera that can deliver the goods without the expensive price tag.

    This camera looks great and I know Nikon is a very reputable brand. I need to move forward soon but this camera looks the goods

    Thanks for the advice

      Mobile phone cameras are ok too… But to capture the detail and clarity, only a good dslr will do the job. 

  3. This camera would actually be a step up from my D3300 that I have used for a few years now.  For most of what I do, the D3300 works great, but we are looking at getting into more sports action photography. Do you think the D5300 would be fast enough for that?

    I love the WiFi addition. It would be great to quickly upload photos to my smartphone or computer to share online on our newspaper website.

    It looks like the kit comes with two lenses? Can you tell me more about them? Range?

    Thanks. This looks like an amazing camera which would certainly make my photojournalism skills take on a whole new level!

    I look forward to your reply!

      The D3300 is also an awesome camera.  The picture quality of the D3300 is very close to the D5300.  The wifi and gps features are great on the D5300.  For sports action photography, you need to pair it with a fast lens.  The kit lens that comes with D5300 bundle gives you decent results unless the photo will earn you money, then you need to spend a few extra dollars to get a nice fast lens.

      1. Thanks for your reply! I am going to suggest the D5300 become a Christmas present for me this year! I think my employer would benefit from me getting it, too!
        Thanks again! I truly does look like an amazing camera kit!
        Best wishes,
        Karin 🙂

  4. I love this camera. The features are really awesome. 24+ mega pixel! This is really great. I like to take pictures and create beautiful memories. On my last vacation I took pictures with my smart phone and how I wish I had a camera. This one seems very nice. It’s pricey but I guess it’s worth it. What’s the furthest point from which i can take a picture clearly with this camera?

    Thanks for sharing.

      The furthest point is on the lenses is infinity.  Depending on the lens, I’ve taken photos of people as far as up to    20 – 30 feet, and the facial features are still nice and crisp.

      1. This is really great.


  5. Thank you very much for this review. I have heard people talking very good about this camera and decided to research a bit about it.

    I’m beginning in photography but I come from a home we’re photography was an important subject. So, I want to start with a good camera and hearing good advice. I perfectly understand the image control a photographer has with a DSLR. There is no point of comparison when we place a picture taken with fixed lens camera besides a picture taken with a DSLR. The fine tune that can be done on each image excites me! 

    I appreciate the built in GPS. It will be useful during family trips. 🙂 The range of lenses available is also important! My dad usually says, lenses do a big part of the job! And surely a lot of fine detail can be captured with a 24.3 Megapixel sensor.

  6. i was looking for an update from my current Canon DSLR and this Nikon seems to have all the features that I was looking for. The wifi and GPS is almost a must in today’s digital age. It was always a hassle to take my memory card out to load the photos onto my computer. I don’t even know how many times I left home without my memory card because it was in the computer. I am going to love being able to send everything wirelessly. Thanks for the review!
