The Nikon D5300 sports an APS-C (23.5 x 15.6 mm) sized CMOS sensor with a resolution of 24.0 MP. Processor 4 exceeding. You can capture images with aspect ratios of 3:2 with a maximum resolution of 6000 x 4000 pixels. The D5300 can save files in RAW format, which provides you more room for post-processing, and it has a base ISO range of 100 – 12800 that can be increased to 25600.

The APS-C camera with the lowest resolution is the Nikon D5300. With a 33.0MP sensor, the Canon M6 MII is the class leader.

Nikon D500 DxOMark Sensor Scores

DxOMark is a benchmark for evaluating the image quality of camera sensors scientifically. DxO Mark evaluated the Nikon D5300 sensor and gave it an overall score of 83 for its ability to produce high-quality images. The specifics of their examination of the Nikon D5300 are available here.

Anti-Aliasing Filter

The absence of an anti-alias (Low-pass) filter on the sensor of the Nikon D5300 is a significant characteristic. While removing the anti-aliasing filter improves sharpness and detail, it also increases the likelihood that moire will appear in some scenes.

A fully Articulated 3.20-inch LCD screen with a 1,037k-dot resolution is featured on Nikon D5300. When opposed to just tilting or fixed screens, articulated screens are more video-oriented. However, people who are interested in photography tend to like tilting screens. The 3.20″ screen on the Nikon D5300 is larger than typical and has a resolution that meets class standards.

Because of its Selfie-friendly screen, the Nikon D5300 will make life easier for those of you who enjoy taking individual or group selfies. Vloggers and any other single-person video production teams will benefit from the LCD screen of the D5300 as well.


AutofocusNikon Multi-CAM 4800DX autofocus sensor module with TTL phase detection, 39 focus points (including 9 cross-type sensors), and AF-assist illuminator (range approx. 0.5 to 3 m/1 ft 8 in. to 9 ft 10 in.)
Detection range-1 to +19 EV (ISO 100, 20°C/68°F)
Lens servoAutofocus (AF): Single-servo AF (AF-S); continuous-servo AF (AF-C); auto AF-S/AF-C selection (AF-A); predictive focus tracking activated automatically according to subject status

Manual focus (MF): Electronic rangefinder can be used
Focus pointCan be selected from 39 or 11 focus points
AF-area modesSingle-point AF, 9-, 21- or 39-point dynamic-area AF, 3D-tracking, auto-area AF
Focus lockFocus can be locked by pressing the shutter-release button halfway (single-servo AF) or by pressing () button

The D5300 has excellent onboard intelligence and metering, allowing you to concentrate on shot composition and, most importantly, the moment that is happening. The excellent Scene Recognition System on Nikon’s cameras analyses your shooting environment compares it to a database of thousands of scenes and then chooses the best auto exposure, i-TTL flash exposure, white balance, and autofocus settings automatically.

AF Phase detectionYES
Number of focus points39
Number of cross focus points9

Both the Contrast Detection and Phase Detection autofocus (AF) technologies on the Nikon D5300 guarantee quick and precise focusing in the majority of circumstances. 39 focus points make up the AF system, 9 of which are cross-type sensors. Compared to single-type sensors, cross-type sensors are faster and more accurate at locking focus.

Additionally, the Nikon D5300 has face detection autofocus, which automatically locks focus when it detects faces in the frame.

Bring stunning 1080p Full HD films up to the image quality the D5300 achieves—softly blurred backgrounds, razor-sharp details, and bright colors. Nikon’s continuous autofocus follows and maintains the sharpness of your subject in Live View. 

Your films will have high-fidelity sound thanks to the built-in stereo microphone, or you may upgrade to Nikon’s optional accessory ME-1 stereo microphone for the best audio quality.

You may capture videos with the Nikon D5300 at a maximum quality of 1920 x 1080 at 60, 50, 30, 25, or 24 frames per second and save them in MPEG-4 and H.264 codecs. In most circumstances, the Nikon D5300’s full HD resolution will be sufficient.

A Stereo microphone and a Mono speaker are also included within the D5300. Additionally, the Nikon D5300 contains a connector for an external microphone, allowing you to use it to record high-quality audio. However, it is unfortunate that there is no headphone jack.

Compatible Lenses

Compatible lensesAutofocus is available with AF-S and AF-I lenses. Autofocus is not available with other type G and D lenses, AF lenses (IX NIKKOR and lenses for the F3AF are not supported), and AI-P lenses. Non-CPU lenses can be used in mode , but the camera exposure meter will not function; the electronic rangefinder can be used with lenses that have a maximum aperture of f/5.6 or faster

There are presently 316 native lenses that can be used with the Nikon D5300’s Nikon F lens mount. Nikon F mount has one of the widest selections of lenses and has backward compatibility, allowing you to use lenses dating back to the 1960s. Additionally, it is highly supported by lenses made by independent producers.

The Nikon D5300 has a minor drawback in that it lacks an internal focus motor, making it incompatible with older screw-drive autofocus (AF) lenses. Modern Nikon AF-S, AF-I, and G lenses still function flawlessly with the Nikon D5300, while older lenses may not.

Nikon D5300 specifications and key features have made it clear that this camera is best for beginner use. The features are excellent and meet modern requirements. The camera provides all basic and advanced level options for good production. You should choose the lens for appropriate use in order to get the best results.


Is the Nikon D5300 a good camera?

YES. The best entry-level DSLR you will ever hold in your hands is the Nikon D5300. It is small, light, and has incredible image quality, even at high ISO and in dim circumstances.

Is Nikon D5300 good for night photography?

YES. Though the focal length is weak for capturing the details of the background landscape, the lens’s depth of field in low light allows you to capture the night sky or milky way behind your subject.

Does D5300 have auto ISO?

YES. The D5300 is so sophisticated that the AUTO ISO option has a preset for the lowest shutter speed! The D5300 sets the slowest shutter speed in AUTO minimum speed before the ISO starts to rise in accordance with the focal length setting of the lens.

Is Nikon D5300 waterproof?

NO. D5300is not waterproof in any way. So be careful not to immerse this camera.

Does D5300 shoot 4k?

NO. The Nikon D5300 capture images with aspect ratios of 3:2 with a maximum resolution of 6000 x 4000 pixels. It does not offer shooting in 4k.

Is Nikon D5300 good for videos?

YES. The D5300 boasts the ability to record uncompressed video over its HDMI connector, just like all of Nikon’s higher-end DSLRs that were only just announced. The advantages of capturing uncompressed footage for video professionals lay in eliminating compression glitches that can limit grading possibilities in post-production.

Does D5300 have touch screen?

NO. Additionally, the D5300 lacks the touchscreen functionality that we adore in products from some of its rivals. The D5300 seems rather robust, with no flexing or creaking, despite having a plastic body. The Canon EOS Rebel T5i and Pentax K-50 are in the same league as the D5300.

Can Nikon D5300 shoot raw?

Yes, the 5300 has a preset for RAW Plus JPEG. It is available to you as one of the menu settings options.

How many focus points does the Nikon D5300 have?

The D5300 uses all 39 focus points to identify the primary subject and then automatically focuses on it. The subject identification algorithms of the Scene Recognition System can be used by the camera to identify human skin tones for better human subject capture.

Can you vlog with Nikon D5300?

YES. The cheapest DSLR you can buy to utilise for vlogging is the Nikon D5300. It is a DSLR camera for beginners with certain advantages over the T5i, which is its main rival.

Can I live stream with my Nikon D5300?

YES. A Nikon D5300 can be used as a webcam or for real-time capture to a computer, so it’s possible to upgrade your home office for Zoom meetings or set up a home vlogging studio.
