Nikon's 'advanced beginner' DSLR, the D5300 takes the D5200's place between the entry-level D3200 and the enthusiast-targeted D7100 in the company's APS-C lineup. The D5300 offers a 24MP sensor (like its 24MP APS-C stablemates), an articulated rear LCD,...

By Kyle Schurman At first glance the Nikon D5300 DSLR camera doesn't look much different from its D5200 predecessor with a very similar shape, similar weight, similar design, and similar features.However it's the changes you can't readily see that...

Apart from the addition of the latter, however, we can't shake the feeling that the D5300 is very much business as usual for Nikon. But if resting on your laurels/playing to your strengths nevertheless results in some excellent pictures with a minimal amount of input from the user, then many will...
