Nikon D5300 Announced, Has Built-In Wi-Fi and Better Battery Life

Nikon has just unveiled its D5300, its first DSLR with built-in WiFi and an update on its older (but still fairly recently introduced) D5200.

Here’s what you need to know about the D5300:

  • It’s Nikon’s first DSLR with built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, and it’ll pair with the Nikon Wireless Mobile Utility app (available for Android and iOS) for easy sharing
  • It features an EXPEED 4 processor
  • It has a 3.2-inch 1.04M dot fully articulating LCD display
  • It’s got a 24.2-megapixel sensor with no optical low-pass filter
  • It can shoot 1080p video at 60p
  • It’s got an ISO range of 100 to 25,600
  • The battery should last for about 600 photos. If you compare the D5300 and the D5200, that’s 100 more pictures than its predecessor.
  • It comes out later this month and will cost $799.95, or $1,399.95 with a Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6 VR kit lens

You can find more specs and photos over at Snapsort. And, if you’re interested, you can see how it stacks up against its competitor, the Canon Rebel T5i.
