Nikon D5300 Review: Verdict

The new sensor design and the removal of the low-pass filter enables the D5300 to record more sharp detail than the D5200.

Although there is more noise in some images, it is controlled well, especially at the highest sensitivity settings.

While Nikon has introduced Wi-Fi connectivity and GPS, it hasn’t really embraced the design of the D5300 by giving it a fast Live View AF system or making the vari-angle screen touch-sensitive.

Features: 4/5
Build/Handling: 4/5
Image quality: 4/5
Value: 4/5

Final Score: 4/5

We say: The D5300’s image quality is excellent, and the control layout is easy to get to grips with. However, enthusiasts may want more direct controls, while novices may wish for better Live View performance.
