(Relaxnews) – Nikon’s latest middle-range D-SLR is its first to offer built-in wi-fi connectivity. The D5300 will hit US stores before the end of October, with prices starting at $800.
The Nikon D5300 is equipped with a 24.2MP CMOS sensor, maximum ISO of 12,800, and an articulating 3.2-inch TFT display. The camera can shoot images with up to 6,000 x 4,000 pixels or film 60fps sequences with resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels.
Compared to its predecessor, the D5200, the most notable upgrade for the D5300 is its built-in wi-fi connectivity, which allows users to transfer their photos and videos directly to a mobile device or to social networks via the Wireless Mobile Utility app (available for Android and iOS). The new integrated GPS is also an interesting addition, giving users the possibility of automatically geotagging photos.
The Nikon D5300 will be available in grey, red or black from this month at $800 for just the body, or at $1,400 with an 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens.
