Nikon Announce the D5600, Everywhere but the US?

Nikon have officially announced the D5600, their new entry-level DX-format DSLR. The new camera supersedes the D5500 but is more of an update than an overhaul.

The D5600 uses the same 24.2MP sensor as the D5500, as well as the EXPEED 4 processor, but brings some useful enhancements. Wi-Fi and Snapbridge compatibility have been added along with a new time-lapse mode. The D5600 also features enhanced touchscreen functionality including the touch frame advance bar from the Nikon D5.

Strangely the D5600 has been announced everywhere apart from the US, with no hint of a Stateside release date so we will have to wait a while longer to see if we will be getting the D5600 here soon.

Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available.

Entry-level DX-format Digital SLR Camera with Seamless Connectivity Ignites Creativity and Sharing by Transforming Social Storytelling

TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the D5600, an entry-level DX-format digital SLR designed for photography hobbyists and content creators to explore different creative and artistic expressions. With convenient connectivity features, the D5600 is also built for easy sharing and social storytelling.

The D5600 is equipped with a range of features that encourages users to capture and communicate their stories. Featuring a vari-angle LCD monitor that flips out and rotates, it is possible to shoot from nearly any angle for greater creative freedom. The touch-screen operation so popular with the D5500 has been further enhanced in the D5600 with the addition of a crop function for use during playback zoom, and a frame advance bar that allows scrolling through images in playback mode easily. The D5600 also incorporates a time-lapse movie function equivalent to that of the more advanced Nikon D7200, enabling users to capture changing scenes over a time period and create stunning time-lapse videos.

In addition, a constant connection between the D5600 and a smart device is possible using the SnapBridge app and Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) technology. Images captured are automatically transferred to the paired smart device and users can upload and share high-quality images in a seamless, integrated process. The image transfer continues even after the camera has been turned off. SnapBridge also enables automatic image upload to NIKON IMAGE SPACE. Furthermore, wireless video transfer and remote shooting are possible via Wi-Fi®.
