Nikon managed to pack one heck of a punch into the new D5300 including a 24-megapixel CMOS sensor, EXPEED 4 image processor, and the ability to shoot HD Video. An ISO range of 100-12800 is present and can be expanded to 25,600 for super low-light situations. Nikon has also removed the low pass filter from the imaging sensor which results in an even sharper and cleaner image.

"With the Nikon D5300, we are continuing our commitment to delivering unparalleled performance and image quality while addressing the importance of staying connected and sharing images with ease," said Masahiro Horie, Director of Marketing and Planning, Nikon Inc. "By answering the need to share high quality photos, the Nikon D5300 allows photographers to capture their memories in astounding clarity and share them with family and friends moments after they happen."Advanced Performance for When it Matters Most"
