Nikon D5300 Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens, HD 1080p, 24.2MP, Wi-Fi, 3.2" Screen

Product information

Powerful, professional results with the versatility of interchangeable lenses from Nikon. The D5300 is more than a full size DSLR, it’s also a Full HD camcorder with an advanced image processor to let you shoot sharper and faster than ever. Tough and ergonomically designed, it sits solidly in the hand for confident shooting in any situation. It also features a suite of built-in functions like scene selection, movie modes and high speed shooting so you’ll always be ready to capture those special moments.

24.2MP sensor
Nikon makes outstanding image quality possible with a newly developed Nikon DX-format CMOS image sensor and the new EXPEED 4 image-processing engine for shooting at up to 5fps.

Your pictures are ready to send immediately to smart devices for sharing on sites like Facebook. Remote shooting also lets you release the shutter from a distance, while your smart device can operate like a remote live view monitor to confirm the image before you take the snap.

Full HD video
The D5300 also doubles as a high-performance video camera capable of Full HD D-Movies at 1920 x 1080. With 50/60p capture you get smooth, fluid recording, even with fast-moving subjects.

39 point autofocus
More focus points quickly and sharply capture action, even when your subject isn't in the centre of the frame. The D5300 offers wide-area AF coverage and high-density focus points including 9 cross-type sensor in the canter area, helping you to get everything looking as sharp as possible.

Creative effects
Enhance your pictures and movies with nine easy-to-use effects, including HDR Painting and Toy Camera. You can even check how the effect looks in real time before you shoot.

Feeling creative?

One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless.

Note: Please check the compatibility of the lens with your camera.

Q & As

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super camera I am really pleased with my Nikon it takes such a great photo. Easy to use. I really like the function that uses wifi to share photos with such ease. I also like the switch screen which I can turn around to show what I'm taking a picture of. Very happy John Lewis customer. The salesman knew so much about the product. This made my choice a lot easier. Thx 05 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good compact DSLR camera This is my first DSLR camera, whilst it seems a little complicated I am certain I will master it. 11 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Camera Easy to use but with plenty of advanced features. The built-in GPS doesn't work very well - frequently loses comms with the satellites. The built-in WiFi is more useful. For me, anyway. The photo quality is very good. 08 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nikon D5300 I'm just getting involved with photography and bought this camera as an upgrade from an Olympus E-PM2. I started taking photos with the Nikon using the 'auto' setting and didn't really find the results much better than the Olympus. The D5300 a nice camera to handle with plenty of controls, although some of the wheel adjustments are quite notchy feeling and not smooth. I did also discover that I got sharper results letting the camera focus using the screen, rather than through the viewfinder.. I generally like the camera, but in retrospect wish I'd spent a bit more and gone for an FX Nikon, rather than the DX system. My next step is to get a 50mm prime lens, as these are supposed to give sharper photos... 07 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The next step Purchased this to replace a D3200. Contains same features plus more. Finding the adjustable screen more user friendly than the fixed on the D3200. Also making use of the exposure bracketing. A step up from the entry model which is giving me more options whilst still feeling familiar and user friendly. 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great camera!! The camera is easy to use on the Automatic setting, and I'm still learning on the Manual !! It produces lovely quality pictures in all situations . The Wifi is easy to set up and quick to download. An all round great purchase . 03 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nikon D5300 - excellent. Brilliant bit of kit! Would have been nice if it came with a bag though. Wifi is great and easy to use! Glad in went for this as oppose to the entry level D3300. 20 August 2014
