High image quality
Nikon makes it possible with the perfect combination of image sensor, image-processing engine, Picture Control technology and NIKKOR lenses
High-megapixel sensor: where the sharpness begins
Thanks in part to an extremely high pixel count, the D5300 achieves amazingly sharp, rich details and smooth, natural skin tones. One of the main contributors to superior image quality is D5300's newly developed cutting-edge Nikon DX-format CMOS image sensor. Incredible color. Incredible detail. When it comes to preserving your most cherished memories, the D5300 delivers both.
The benefits of leaving the optical low-pass filter out
In order to maximize the high resolution realized by its high pixel count, the D5300's image sensor unit does not integrate an optical low-pass filter (OLPF). This system successfully brings out NIKKOR lenses' sharp rendering performance to make full use of the 24.2-megapixel resolution achieved with the Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor, delivering stunning reproduction of details with depth.
Faithful color reproduction, low noise and fast operational speeds: the EXPEED 4 image-processing engine
The full potential of the 24.2 effective megapixels is on your side. Nikon's new EXPEED 4 image-processing engine gives your pictures and movies exquisite color. This unique system runs through countless operations at lightning-fast speeds to produce images of exceptional quality. Expect less noise, more faithful tones and true blacks, even when shooting in low light or dimly lit interiors. Nikon's exclusive technology also helps the D5300 achieve a standard ISO sensitivity range of 100 to 12800, and it's extendable to an ISO 25600 equivalent (Hi 1), so you can avoid the effects of camera shake by using faster shutter speeds in low light. It also delivers outstanding color reproduction and tonal gradation at all sensitivity ranges.
Even at high ISO settings, Nikon's superior noise-reduction function realizes beautiful textures with minimized color noise. EXPEED 4 manages massive amounts of data at surprisingly high speeds, so you can enjoy uninterrupted shooting, knowing that the camera is handling all of the hard work for you.
Nikon's unique Picture Control
Picture Control provides six settings: Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait and Landscape. Thanks to the EXPEED 4 image-processing engine's improved color reproduction, the D5300 provides cleaner, more beautiful images. You can manually adjust sharpness or contrast, and the effects can be confirmed, even during live view.
NIKKOR lenses: Uncompromising optical quality
Choose from a wide variety of NIKKOR lenses to get the creative look you want. Trusted by many of the world's top professional photographers, NIKKOR lenses render images with unmatched sharpness and definition, and make a visible difference when combined with Nikon cameras, making them the perfect companion to cameras like the D5300 with high-resolution image sensors.
