The D5300 at a glance

NPhoto - - Test Team -

AF as­sist lamp

The aut­o­fo­cus as­sist lamp takes its usual po­si­tion, just inside the fin­ger grip.

IR re­ceiver

There’s the typ­i­cal pro­vi­sion of in­frared re­ceivers on the front and rear, for re­mote con­trollers.

Drive mode but­ton

This takes up a new po­si­tion and is uniquely placed in this group of cam­eras, just be­low the lens re­lease but­ton.

Shrouded but­tons

The new mono­coque body in­cludes shroud­ing for the Menu, i, and AE-L/AF-L but­tons.


La­belling makes it look as if GPS and Wi-Fi op­tions might be avail­able from the Live View lever, but they’re ac­tu­ally ac­cessed via the Setup menu.

Shoot­ing mode dial

Build­ing on the D5200’s op­tions in the Ef­fects shoot­ing mode, the D5300 adds Toy cam­era and HDR Paint­ing.

Com­mand dial

As with all but the D7100 in this group, there’s only a sin­gle com­mand dial, and no sub-com­mand dial around the front.

LCD screen

The ar­tic­u­lated screen is larger than the D5200’s: 3.2 rather than three inches, and 1,037,000 pix­els rather than 921,000.

Zoom and Delete

The place­ment is almost iden­ti­cal to on the D5200, with only sub­tle changes to the po­si­tions of the zoom and delete but­tons, and the mem­ory card ac­cess lamp.
