• D5100 Expeed 2
• D5200 Expeed 3
• D5300 Expeed 4

It’s not just cameras which are continually developed, but their on-board processors too. Successive generations of Expeed processors have enabled Nikon to keep improving the image quality, particularly the high ISO noise reduction.

The Nikon D5100 uses an Expeed 2 processor, the D5200 has a more advanced Expeed 3 processor and the D5300 uses a brand new Expeed 4 system.

• D5100 4fps
• D5200 5fps
• D5300 5fps

Faster processors can often allow faster continuous shooting speeds too, but while the D5200 boasts a slight speed increase over the D5100, up from 4fps to 5fps, the new D5300 sticks with the 5fps maximum continuous shooting speed.

Nikon says the Expeed 4 processor has been used for improved image quality and not higher continuous shooting speeds.
