They’re both pow­er­ful and ver­sa­tile cam­eras, but in dif­fer­ent ways, so what are the pros and cons?

Key dif­fer­ences

01 The D5300 has a flip-out vari-an­gle screen which makes it eas­ier to shoot at low an­gles and in con­fined spa­ces. The D7100’s screen is fixed.

02 The D5300 has Wi-Fi net­work­ing and GPS built in. These are avail­able on the D7100, but only via plug-in ac­ces­sories, which will add to the cost.

03 The D7100 is more ad­vanced in other ar­eas. It uses Nikon’s pro­fes­sional 51-point aut­o­fo­cus mod­ule, while the D5300 uses the mid-range 39-point sys­tem.

04 Both cam­eras can shoot pro­fes­sional qual­ity 1920 x 1080 movies and have ex­ter­nal mic sock­ets, but the D7100 has an au­dio-out for sound mon­i­tor­ing.

05 Both cam­eras use SD/ SDHC/SDXC mem­ory cards, but the D7100 has dual card slots for ex­tra ca­pac­ity, sep­a­rat­ing movies and stills or keep­ing a rolling backup.

06 The D5300 is smaller and lighter, weigh­ing 530g com­pared to 765g for the D7100, but the D7100 is weather and dust-re­sis­tant with mag­ne­sium-al­loy top and rear cov­ers.
