DX -for­mat SLR > £580, $800 > www.nikon.com The mid-point in Nikon’s DX-for­mat range has al­ways been a sweet spot for value and per­for­mance, and the D5300 is no ex­cep­tion.

Although the D5300 sports nearly the same pixel count as its pre­de­ces­sor, the op­ti­cal low-pass fil­ter has been ditched to help max­imise im­age sharp­ness. The new cam­era is smaller, lighter and boasts a boosted bat­tery life. But it’s the D5300’s abun­dance of toys that sets it apart: the new 3.2-inch 1,073,000-dot vari-an­gle LCD is a stun­ner, plus there’s now built-in Wi-Fi and GPS. See page 100 for a full anal­y­sis.

Up­grade if you own... a D5100 or D3100 and want more megapix­els and fea­tures, but if you al­ready own a D5200, save your cash for lenses.

run­ner up... Ni kon D3300

Nikon’s en­try-level D-SLR is more ap­peal­ing than ever thanks to 24.2 megapix­els, five frames-per-sec­ond shoot­ing and a sen­si­tiv­ity range top­ping out at ISO25600. Turn to page 96 for more.
