Nikon announces a slightly upgraded Nikon D5600 with improved wireless connectivity and time-lapse video.
At the beginning of this year Nikon introduced the first always-connected DSLR with the Nikon D500 and now we’re starting to see the same technology come to its more affordable cameras.
The Nikon D5600 comes sporting the same SnapBridge technology first seen on the D500, allowing users to maintain a constant wireless connection between the camera and smartphone. While paired the D5600 can back up a continuous stream of images to Nikon’s Image Space photo sharing service while synchronizing timestamp and location data.
The Nikon D5600 also comes sporting a simple time-lapse movie function pulled from the Nikon D7200 that compress long periods of time into short videos.
Aside from these new functions, the Nikon D5600 sports many identical specs to its predecessor including a 24.2MP APS-C sensor without an optical low-pass filter and Expeed 4 Image Processor. Overall, we should see relatively the same image quality due to these returning parts – not that we’re complaining.
The has proven itself to be a flexible and versatile camera for stills and particularly video shooting with 1080p 60fps video output and a 3.2-inch 1,037k-dot vari-angle touchscreen display users can spin forward.
Currently Nikon plans to only release the D5600 in the UK with pricing and availability yet to be announced.
