The new D5600 DSLR Camera from Nikon is similar to previous entry-level models with one key difference that goes by the name of SnapBridge. A nascent innovation that’s made a few previous appearances, SnapBridge is quite literally an invisible bridge that sends all those high-resolution photos directly to your mobile device with no card shuffling or button pushing required. For those who want both the performance of a DSLR camera and the unfettered mobility of a smartphone, SnapBridge is the solution you’ve been waiting for.
Otherwise, the D5600 hosts a slew of reliable specs and features that make it a worthy camera, but not necessarily a game changer. It has a 24.2 megapixel sensor and 3.2 inch LCD touchscreen. The image quality is top notch and the controls are supremely accessible, meaning you can turn the camera on and go to town with the utmost of ease. The D5600 also comes equipped with a slew of management tools that allow you to creatively tinker with each image until it’s just right or so very, very wrong.
Rounding out the D5600’s bounty of approachable charms is an exceptionally long battery life that allows for 970 shots per charge. A quick tip: adjust the SnapBridge settings so 970 pictures don’t fill up your smartphone every time you take Nikon’s latest for a spin. Or don’t adjust the settings you crazy picture taking bastard. What’s important is that you do you.
