Creative vision: NIKKOR lenses

One of the D5300's greatest advantages is NIKKOR lenses. With each lens you use, you'll see and capture the world in a completely new way. Wide-angle lenses let you capture landscapes and group shots. Telephoto lenses get closer to the action. Micro-NIKKOR lenses capture fine details at a high magnification, while zoom lenses offer incredible versatility when shooting. Made exclusively for Nikon D-SLR cameras, NIKKOR lenses are crafted with an uncompromising level of quality.

AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED

This DX-format, ultra-wide-angle 2.4x zoom lens covers a focal length range from 10 mm to 24 mm. With the widest end of 10 mm covering a 109° angle of view, it delivers dramatic perspectives to give your photography a creative edge with superior reproduction capability. Perfect for landscape shots.

AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G

This light and compact lens is optimized for DX-format cameras, delivering both the superb sharpness and beautiful background blur you would expect from a prime lens. The fast aperture makes it particularly suited for portraits, and increases photo opportunities in low light.

AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G

This remarkably light, compact and agile micro lens serves as an exceptional complement to DX cameras. In addition to a dynamic life-size (1x) close-up capability, the 40 mm focal length can make a wide variety of subject matter approachable, including portraits and landscapes. An excellent Micro NIKKOR for any DX photographer.

AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

Ideal for almost any photo opportunity. This incredibly versatile lens has a dynamic zoom coverage of approx. 16.7x from wide-angle to super-telephoto. It also features Vibration Reduction (VR), which offers an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 3.5 stops* faster. A highly convenient lens when traveling.

  • *Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when attached to a DX-format digital SLR camera, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.
Focal length: 18mm
Focal length: 300mm

Built-in pop-up flash useful for both night and day

The D5300's built-in flash is not only useful at night or indoors, but can also soften annoying shadows from the faces of subjects who are backlit or wearing a hat. The camera adds the right light automatically, and when it is set to modes like Auto or Portrait, the flash pops up automatically when needed*.

  • *When shooting mode is set to Auto, Portrait, Child, Close up, Night portrait, Party/indoor, Pet portrait, Special Effect and Toy Camera.

Optional Speedlight for more natural lighting

The professional-looking bounce flash technique becomes simple with the SB-300*. Just tilt the flash head up, and the correct amount of light bounces off the ceiling to provide a soft, natural glow that might have otherwise been too direct or harsh.

  • *The SB-300 does not support Advanced Wireless Lighting.

WR-R10/WR-T10 Wireless Remote Controller

Comfortable remote shooting is assured with WR-R10 and WR-T10 Wireless Remote Controller*. Utilizing radio waves, these remote controllers enable remote shooting even if obstacles, such as trees, obscure the line of sight. You can control a single or multiple cameras with a WR-R10 attached (the number of cameras is not limited) by using the WR-T10 as a transmitter. Besides driving AF by half-pressing the shutter-release button of the controller and continuous shooting by pressing the shutter-release button longer, you can employ the controllers to operate various functions of the D5300 including movie recording.

  • *The maximum reachable distance is approx. 20 m/66 ft. Approximate range at height of about 1.2 m/4 ft; varies with weather conditions and presence or absence of obstacles.

Note: Depending on the camera, there may be a limitation to the accessories that can be attached simultaneously with the WR-R10 Wireless Remote Controller. Attempting to forcibly attach accessories can damage the camera or accessory.
