Nikon just introduced the new D5600 camera – a small improvement over the former D5500 camera with a fully articulated touchscreen with improved capabilities and new wireless options.
We tested the Nikon D5500 about a year ago and found it to be a solid entry level DSLR (although with very minor improvements over the D5300 – mostly the touch screen side).
So what is new in the D5600 – well to be honest not much – again. Nikon seem to mostly wanted to add the SnapBridge technology (including WIFI/BT support) which was first introduced in the D500 (which we shall look at closely here next week). What else is new – there is a new In-camera time-lapses with auto exposure feature (should be interesting to test) and a feature called frame advance bar touch interface (which also exist on some other new models like the D5). Other than that everything else seems to be very similar to the D5500 (same 24MP sensor with no AA filter, EXPEED 4 processor, same body, same 3.2 articulated touch display, same 5fps shooting speed and sadly no 4K (so just up to 1080p 60p for the D5600).
At the time of writing Nikon U.S. still did not update their website to include the D5600 and it isn’t clear when (or if) this model will even come to the U.S. (our money is on yes, but a bit later on).
