Nikon’s newest DX-format D-SLR transforms social story-telling via automatic smart device connectivity
NEW DELHI, November 10, 2016 – Nikon India, the 100% subsidiary of Nikon Corporation Tokyo, leaders in imaging technology, today announced the Nikon D5600, specially designed for photography hobbyists and content creators to explore their creative and artistic expressions. With convenient connectivity features, the latest entry-level DX-format D-SLR from Nikon is also designed for easy sharing and social story-telling.
The D5600 is equipped with a range of features that encourages users to capture and communicate their memories and favourite moments. Featuring a vari-angle LCD monitor that flips out and rotates, greater creative freedom in photography expressions is made possible. The touch screen operation that is a perennial favourite with the D5000-series has been further enhanced with the addition of a crop function for use during playback zoom, and a frame advance bar that lets users scroll through images in playback mode easily. Time-lapse movie function from the more advanced Nikon D7200 has also been incorporated into this DSLR, providing users an opportunity to experiment and expand their visual story-telling with stunning time-lapse videos.
Commenting on the announcement of the D5600, Kazuo Ninomiya, Managing Director, Nikon India said, “We are proud to bring forward the latest product in the preferred D5000-series to our customers. The new and advanced Nikon D5600 unleashes our desire for imaginative freedom. The camera embodies this sentiment and is presented with the new SnapBridge function, expanded ISO sensitivity, and in-camera time-lapse movie function, all fitted into a compact and lightweight D-SLR body with a vari-angle touch screen LCD monitor. Fitting perfectly in a backpack, this new Nikon D-SLR lives the moment along with you, to capture the candid expressions or stunning horizons from your travels, gatherings and events, in stunning images to reminisce, share and impress.”
Sajjan Kumar, Senior Vice President – Corporate Sales & Strategy, Nikon India said, “With the ever-growing interests in photography in India, our consumers are increasingly opting for D-SLRs for professional quality photographs. The launch of Nikon D5600 gratifies this amplified demand for a stellar photography experience. Additionally, at Nikon, we look at constant innovation of our products to deliver the best performance to all photographers. The Nikon D5600 is packed with advanced features to raise the notch from its predecessors. We are sure the product will delight our esteemed customers with a smooth functioning.”
A constant connection between the D5600 and a smart device is possible using the SnapBridge app and Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) technology. Still images captured are automatically transferred to the paired smart device, and users can upload and share high quality images in a seamless, integrated process. SnapBridge also enables the image transfer to continue even after the camera has been turned off, and uploading of images to NIKON IMAGE SPACE for storage and share. Doubling the convenience in a user’s photography experience is the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi® for wireless video transfer and remote shooting, transforming the DSLR to an all-time companion for any occasion.
• Keeping up with inspiration: Support for the SnapBridge app*1 means that with a one-time setup, a constant connection between the D5600 and a smart device*2 is maintained, enabling simple automatic transfer*3 of photos. In addition, a number of convenient functions, including automatic upload to Nikon's photo sharing service, NIKON IMAGE SPACE*4, the addition of copyright information and comments to photos, and automatic synchronization of camera date/time and location information with that of the smart device, can be used. What's more, the D5600 also supports the high-speed transfer of selected still images, movie transfer, and remote capture of still images when Wi-Fi*5 is enabled.
• Pairing flexibility with functionality: The camera is equipped with a 8.86cm (3.2") vari-angle LCD touch screen monitor that enables shooting from low to high angles, and even selfies. Naturally, the touch screen function shares the same touch operations available with the D5500, but the new D5600 also supports the frame advance bar adopted for the high-end D5 and D500 for scrolling through images in full-frame playback. In addition, the touch Fn function that is favoured with the D5500 has been expanded to support the enabling and disabling of auto ISO sensitivity control, and operation with viewfinder shooting has also been improved.
• Igniting creativity in vivid colours: The intuitive D5600 offers an effective pixel count of 24.2-million pixels and is equipped with a Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor without an optical low-pass filter. The combination of this technology, alongside an EXPEED 4 image-processing engine, enables capture of images that make the most of the superior rendering characteristics of NIKKOR lenses. A broad range of standard sensitivities are supported with ISO 100 to 25600, enabling captures of highly detailed images in which noise is effectively suppressed, even with shooting in dark or dimly lit surroundings.
• Expanding the visual sensory: The D5600 is newly equipped with the time-lapse movie function, which allows users to easily compress long periods of time into short ones, using just the camera, to express changes that occur over time, such as the shapes of clouds as they roll by, or the movement of people and cars through city streets. In addition, the exposure smoothing function makes capturing beautiful time-lapse movies easier by suppressing variations in exposure caused by changes in lighting that occur naturally, such as when the sun comes up or goes down. Time-lapse movies recorded with the camera can also be transferred to a smart device via SnapBridge.
