I Am Spreading Creativity
Compact, capable, and connected, the Nikon D5600 is a sleek DSLR that blends multimedia imaging capabilities with versatile wireless technology. Centered around a 24.2MP DX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 4 image processor, the camera offers a sensitivity range from ISO 100-25600 to benefit working in an array of lighting conditions, and the sensor and processor combination also supports continuous shooting up to 5 fps for working with moving subjects. Full HD 1080p video recording is also supports up to 60 fps, and time-lapse movies can be created in-camera, too.
While slender in stature, the D5600 does feature a large 3.2" 1.037m-dot rear LCD touchscreen, and utilizes a vari-angle design to better facilitate working from high and low shooting angles. Additionally, SnapBridge is also featured, which can utilize Bluetooth low energy technology for wireless sharing of photos to your mobile device, including automatic transferring of resized images between the camera and your mobile device for seamless online sharing. Wi-Fi with NFC is featured, too, for larger file transfers, such as movies, to a linked device.
Kit includes the compact and lightweight AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens. This lens covers the highly versatile 18–55mm zoom range and features VR image stabilization for sharp photos and video. It uses a pulse motor (utilizing stepping motors) for ultra-fast, near silent autofocus.

Freeze action in its tracks - Wherever your subject is in the frame, one of the D5600's 39 autofocus points (3x more than the D3400) will lock on and hold tight.
Never miss a moment - Shoot fast action with confidence at 5 frames per second so you never miss that perfect moment, whether it's the game winning goal or the newlyweds' first dance.
Better in Low Light
Shoot from dawn to dusk with no problems. Nikon's EXPEED image processor combined with an outstanding autofocus system and the ability to shoot at ISO 25,600, and an expanded ISO sensitivity of 6,400 in Night Landscape mode, ensures low-light scenes and difficult lighting situations are handled with ease making the D5600 a low-light powerhouse. And when the lighting is extremely dim–or you want to eliminate shadows in a bright portrait–the D5600's built-in flash is at the ready to help illuminate any scene.
Enhanced Video Features - Record cinema-quality Full HD footage with photo-like sharpness, vibrant color and crystal clear stereo sound. Pair the D5600 with an AF-P lens, which uses a stepping motor for smooth, near-silent autofocus, to ensure maximum audio fidelity. Create amazing time-lapse movies right in the camera.
In-camera Tools - Explore full manual mode when you're ready. Capture pictures with wide dynamic range using built-in HDR. The D5600 puts unlimited creative potential in your hands. Create eye-catching compositions thanks to the high-quality optical viewfinder, which delivers an incredibly clear view through the lens and when you want to focus on your subject, shooting through the viewfinder lets you block out sunlight and distractions.
