Let technology add some color to your lifestyle

Compact and lightweight body

The D5300 is built for a life on the go. Its new internal design structure makes it much more compact and lighter than the D5200 while maintaining durability. The grip has also been improved so that you can hold the camera body more steadily for both viewfinder shooting and live view shooting, thus preventing camera shake and improving image sharpness. Choose from black, red or gray models to best match your style, and then start enjoying the feeling you get from owning this powerful image-making tool.
