Nikon d5600 release date

The Nikon d5500 was quite a successful camera for Nikon, got good reviews, and was the first Nikon with a Touchscreen (if I remember well). The new Nikon d5600 wants to continue this camera line with more connectivity and creativity.

The new camera has the good old 24,2 MP resolution CMOS sensor without optical low pass filter, has 39 autofocus points with 9 cross-type sensors, and a deeper grip for better handling.

The autofocus system now tracks in 3D. The camera can take photos at 5 frames per second in burst mode, and HD videos at 60/50 frames per second rate (see complete specification below).

The camera has a new Time-lapse mode. The camera advertised with connectivity. The Snapbridge app helps to connect the camera with the smartphone via Wifi and NFC.

The camera can be purchased with the new Af-P lenses (18-55 and 70-300mm) as well optimized for video recording.
