Sharing is the name of this game

We love DSLR cameras for their high-quality images, the versatility of their lenses, and their long battery life. But it takes too long to get pictures out of the camera and into our smartphones and tablets to share them.

We love DSLR cameras for their high-quality images, the versatility of their lenses, and their long battery life. But it takes too long to get pictures out of the camera and into our smartphones and tablets to share them. The Nikon D5600 changes that. With Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) technology and support for the SnapBridge mobile app, the D5600 can automatically transfer still images to a paired smart device, so you can quickly upload and share the pictures you just took.

The D5600 can maintain a constant connection and automatically transfer all of the photos it took, even with the camera turned off. Pictures can be uploaded to Nikon’s photo sharing service, Nikon Image Space. You can also transfer selected images and movies quickly using the D5600’s built-in Wi-Fi.

The D5600 delivers lifelike images with its high-resolution 24.2MP DX-format image sensor. The absence of an optical lowpass filter captures intricate details, and the EXPEED 4 imageprocessing engine gives you a broad range of ISO 100 to ISO 25,600 for great low light photographs.

The D5600 also inherits the Time-Lapse Movie feature from Nikon’s advanced DSLRs. Just set the intervals and amount of time, then let the camera shoot. You’ll get a fully-assembled timelapse movie that transforms the passage of time into a dramatic video, all done in-camera. The 3.2” vari-angle touchscreen monitor lets you shoot from different angles, and handles selfies with no problem.

Smoothly scroll through images with the innovative frame advance bar feature, adapted from Nikon’s high-end D5 and D500 cameras, to see the ones you like. With the Nikon D5600, you can get great photographs you’ll love, and share them as soon as you take them. The camera makes it easy. Nikon D5600.
