The Nikon D5600 is an ideal digital camera for professionals and hobbyists.
It is lightweight, compact and comes with an ergonomic design that makes it easier to take pictures at unique angles.
The people of Nikon obviously know what photographers go through to take amazing pictures. Photographers are professionals not only because of their experience and expertise. Over the years, they have developed an intuition of seeing a story in an image that for average people seem uneventful.
A photographer needs to capture that image and transpose it in a photo where the composition of lines, angles, lighting and structure are responsible in re-creating the original vision. If the moment passes, it can never be captured as initially seen.
The Nikon D5600 has the technology to ensure the photographer’s vision comes to life.
Let’s take a closer look into the technical specs of the Nikon D5600.
Lens Mount and Lenses.
One of the convenient features of the Nikon D5600 is that it has a Nikon F lens mount. There are 257 native lenses available for this mount. But more than availability, the Nikon F has backward compatibility which means you can use F mount lenses as far back as the 1960s.
Sensor and Photography.
The Nikon D5600 uses a 24.0MP APS-C (23.5 x 15.6mm) sized CMOS sensor and includes an Expeed4 Processor. The maximum resolution is 6000 x 4000 pixels. Its ISO range is 100 – 25600 and you can save files in RAW format which allows greater freedom for post processing.
An interesting feature of the Nikon D5600 sensor is that it does not have the anti-alias or low pass filter. Without the anti-alias filter increases sharpness and detail but may lead to moiré or the appearance of wave-like patterns in some scenes.
LCD and Viewfinder.
The 3.2” LCD screen of the Nikon D5600 is larger than the average DSLR and its resolution is up to par with industry standards. The LCD is touch screen so you can easily change the settings and the focus points. And if you like taking selfies, this is the camera for you.
The Nikon D5600 can take continuous shots at a maximum speed of 5.0 fps with a shutter speed of 1.4000 seconds. It’s not the fastest in the market although the D5600 belongs among the top 45% of digital cameras in the market.
