Nikon D5300 vs D5200
Nikon D5300 £739, $1100
The D5300 has built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, which are optional extras on the D5200 – and including them would add considerably to the D5200’s price.
Nikon has removed the anti-aliasing filter from the D5300, which should provide slightly sharper fine detail; otherwise the sensors offer the same resolution.
The D5300 has a slightly larger LCD display on the back, measuring 3.2 inches across the diagonal compared to the three-inch screen on the D5200.
Car construction techniques are now being applied to cameras! The D5300 has a ‘monocoque’ chassis, constructed all in one piece, which makes it a little lighter.
A new EN-EL14a battery for the D5300 gives it a 100-shot advantage over the D5200 (600 shots on a single charge versus 500).
The D5300 uses a newer Expeed 4 processor to deliver improved image quality at ultra-high ISOs – the D5200 did display some banding issues.
