Nikon D5300 vs D5600: Which camera should you buy?

Nikon D5300 vs D5600

If you’re looking at budget-friendly, entry-level DSLRs, then both the Nikon D5300 and Nikon D5600 are worthy of investigation. Being consumer-priced DSLRs, both feature an integral APS-C sensor and are aimed at inspiring photographers – particularly those who have gotten hooked on smartphone photography and are now looking for a dedicated photographic device.

As one would expect from looking at their models numbers, the D5300 is an earlier issue than the D5600, which is its upgrade, coming after the D5500 (there was no D5400).
