Nikon Outs D5300, its First Wi-Fi Enabled DSLR

Nikon rolled out the D5300, the company's first DSLR equipped with Wi-Fi wireless networking, letting you sync the camera's contents with your handhelds, or a computer, over the network. With Wi-Fi direct, it speeds up ad-hoc file-transfers from the camera. It otherwise features a pretty mainstream feature-set.

To begin with, the D5300 offers a 24.2-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, which unfortunately lacks an optical low-pass filter. The sensor is capable of capturing 1080p video at 60 frames per second; and full-quality stills in bursts of 5 frames per second. It's capable of ISO 25,600 sensitivity. On a full battery charge, the D5300 can grab up to 700 stills.

Apart from Wi-Fi, which plays with apps for PCs, Android, and iOS devices, the D5300 features GPS tagging, a 3.2-inch touchscreen with 1.04 million dots, and a stock 18-140 mm lens, with f/3.5-5.6 aperture. With this lens, the D5300 is priced at $1,400. Without it, the body-only D5300 will set you back by just $800.
