Nikon announces D5600 release
Nikon is set to release its D5600 mid-range DSLR which features SnapBridge (Wi-Fi + Bluetooth + NFC) as well as updated touchscreen and a time-lapse feature.
Like its D5500 predecessor, it uses a familiar 24MP sensor and EXPEED 4 processor.
According to Nikon, the DX-Format D5600 is equipped with a Vari-angle LCD monitor that flips out and rotates, making it possible to shoot from nearly any angle. The touch-screen operation popular on the D5500 has been updated with the addition of a crop function for use during playback zoom, and a frame advance bar that lets users scroll through images in playback mode.
The D5600 also incorporates the time-lapse movie function equivalent to that of the more advanced Nikon D7200, enabling users to capture changing scenes over a time period and create time-lapse videos.
Smart device connectivity is possible using the SnapBridge app and Bluetooth low energy (BLE) technology. Images captured are automatically transferred to the paired smart device and users can upload and share high quality images. The image transfer will continue after the camera has been turned off.
SnapBridge also enables automatic image upload to Nikon Image Space and wireless video transfer and remote shooting are possible via Wi-Fi.
Pricing information for the D5600 is yet to be announced.
