Nikon D5300 ditches OLPF and adds Wi-Fi, costs $1,400 with lens kit

Sony and Panasonic have had their show and it’s now time for the Nikon D5300 camera to flaunt its capabilities. It’s the first DSLR from the company to incorporate Wi-Fi so that users can snap and share at once. If you remember the D5200 then know that you’re getting a slightly better deal in terms of the lighter build and enhanced captures thanks to the exclusion of the optical low pass filter (OLPF). The device is priced at $1,399.95 and is expected to be out this month.

The D5300 uses a 24.2MP DX-format CMOS sensor and leans on Expeed 4 image processing. It has a 39-point AF system which works in tandem with scene recognition to ensure that the focus is on the subject within the frame. You can take 1080p full HD videos at 60p or stills at 5fps.

Stuck in a situation with bad lighting? The camera’s ISO 100 – 12800 range is further expandable up to ISO 25600. If you want to indulge in selfies, there’s a 3.2-inch Vari-Angle LCD panel on the device which will allow you to do just this.

Another first for the Nikon DSLR apart from Wi-Fi connectivity that we’ve mentioned above is the integrated GPS. Also, ditching the OLPF means you can expect sharper quality videos and photos. It goes without saying, the camera is built to be compatible with Nikkor lenses and other accessories.

The $1,399.95 price for the Nikon D5300 covers the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens. The camera will be offered in color choices of red, black and gray.
