Nikon’s new WiFi, GPS-enabled D5300 gets a close-up


Nikon has shown off its first WiFI and GPS-sporting DSLR camera, an update of their D5200 unit. The D5300 features a new 24.2 megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor with an EXPEED 4 processor, along with a few other improvements.

Chief among these are obviously the WiFi and GPS inclusions. The WiFi is 802.11, though Nikon hasn’t specified which standard it supports, while the also-new GPS system will allow users to geo-tag images as they go. The WiFi, a first for Nikon’s DSLRs, permits direct emails and uploads to social networks and other online destinations.

Other highlights from Nikon’s updated shooter are the 39-point autofocus system, scene recognition which works in conjunction with the AF to tweak exposure, white balance and the AF itself, and full HD video capture. Oh, and remote control via Nikon’s iOS or Android app.

The D5300 is set for release in the States this month, either in a kit with an AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens or as a body-only purchase. Stuff will keep you posted on when the D5300 gets a little closer to home.
