Nikon’s D5600 helps you capture fantastic images with its 24.2 Megapixel CMOS Image Sensor and stays focused on your subject with an impressive 39 Point autofocus system. In addition to incredible picture quality the camera has a built-in SnapBridge connection that maintains a constant connection with your mobile device so you can share pictures easily.

The D5600 is perfectly suited for enthusiasts exploring the world of photography that want to be able to share their images quickly with friends, family and the rest of the world.

24.2 Megapixel CMOS Sensor

With a high resolution 24.2 Megapixel Image Sensor the D5600 captures fine detail in a scene like individual eyelashes or flower petals with ease. The camera is compatible with Nikon’s impressive range of NIKKOR lenses to allow you to shoot razor sharp images telling your story with vibrant colours and rich detail.

Advanced Image Processor

The Nikon EXPEED 4 Image Processing Engine helps capture high speed movies and ensures that the camera can reproduce the scene with improved colour accuracy. It also allows for an impressive ISO range of 100 to 25,600 that gives you complete control over your exposure even in lower lighting situations.

5 Frames a Second of Continuous Shooting

An added benefit of the advanced image processor is an impressive continuous shooting option that can capture a whopping 5 shots in the space of one second when you hold down the shutter button. This means that if you’re taking a photo of super quick motion like sports or animals you now have 5 times the chances of capturing that perfect moment.

39 Focus Points for Sharper Shots

A dedicated auto focus sensor with 39 individual focus points help you lock onto your subject to deliver crisp in-focus images every time. 9 of the points are cross-type focus points which means they can check for focus both vertically and horizontally for more accurate results.

High Resolution Tilting Touchscreen

The D5600 features a 1037k dot Touchscreen that allows you to view the images and video that you’ve captured with a sharp, bright resolution. It can be flipped around for the perfect selfie or group portrait and can be used to explore shooting from unconventional camera angles. The Vari-Angle touchscreen can also be used when shooting video just like a camcorder and it’s large 3.2-Inch size means you can comfortably see your shots.

Optimised Connectivity for Sharing

Nikon’s new SnapBridge feature uses a low-energy Bluetooth link that maintains a constant connection to your mobile device so that every picture you take can be instantly copied to your phone or tablet. It makes sharing images you have taken faster and easy. No need to wait until you get home before you upload your holiday snaps, you can send images within seconds of capturing them keeping your more connected with your friends and family.

Enhanced Power Management

The D5600 uses CMOS sensor technology to keep power consumption to a minimum so you can take more pictures without needing to constant replace or recharge the battery and the SnapBridge connection uses a low-energy Bluetooth link so you can keep shooting for even longer.

Pop Up Flash and External Hot-Shoe

With a built in Pop Up Flash even in pitch dark conditions you can still capture images by adding in your own light. As well as the built in flash the Nikon D5600 also has an external Hot-Shoe which means it is possible to expand the system with an speedlight or lighting system so you can get really creative with flash photography.

The D5600 is a fantastic camera that offers a large range of features that are perfect for those starting out with photography or even those looking to upgrade their cameras to take advantage of the latest image technology.

This kit includes Nikon D5600 + AF-P DX Nikkor 18-55mm f3.5-5.6G VR Lens.
