Nikon unveiled their entry-level D5600 DSLR a while back, but at CES 2017 they have released new details on when the camera would arrive in the United States. It’ll cost $799, and will be coming sometime this month, with an 18-55mm kit lens.
The camera also comes with Snapbridge, which is their version of an always-on Bluetooth connection to a smartphone or internet-connected device. While the technology isn’t new, it is probably the most advanced version out of other manufacturers offerings. When it is enabled, the camera can instantly send the pictures taken on it to the users phone. Snapbridge even stays connected when the camera is off, so no more messing around with WiFi connections and/or passwords.
When moving onto specifications, the D5600 has a 24.2-Megapixel sensor, a 3.2-inch LCD touchscreen, and the same image processing that is found in its predecessor; the D5500. The touchscreen was a first for Nikon with the D5500, and they’re now saying that it has improved performance and more robust features over the last generation.
