The D5300 Nikon has all the features I wanted in a camera - have not had much a chance to get out and about with it yet but very happy
A fantastic camera, offering all I need in an SLR ...and more! Great value
This camera offered all the requirements I had for a update on my old nikon. First was the improved megapixel size of the processor, second the great benefit of just having the one lens and not having to continually switch between, third the ease of use with selecting shooting modes, fourth the higher rate of burst shooting offered, and finally the video ability added into this camera. I have experienced no problems or shortcomings with it after having shot 3000 frames, and have no hesitation in recommending it to like minded photographers.
Stick with what you know and like and you will not be dissapointed
Great camera. I have a few other Nikons (8400 and D200) and this one replaces both of them. I can't believe the quality of an image shot from so far away and hand held. What does the future hold for cameras such as this. Familiar settings make it easy to operate plus the lenses and flash from the D200 fit both cameras. They can make changes as much as they want but I will be happy with this camera for quite some time. Faults or down sides? Haven't found any yet and don't plan to anyway.
