Nikon has officially announced mid-range D5600 digital SLR camera.
The new model replaces the current D5500 with adding SnapBridge (Wi-Fi + Bluetooth) while shrinking the size of the camera body. Like its predecessor, it uses a similar 24MP sensor and EXPEED 4 processor.
The D5600 also maintains a 3.2″ fully articulated LCD, but adds a few new functions. Users can now enable and disable auto ISO via the touch Fn button. In-camera time-lapses are also offered with an auto exposure smoothing feature to make varying exposures due to changes in lighting look less jarring.
The D5600 will be sold in several kits. It will be available body-only for $699, with the AF-P 18-55mm F3.5-5.6G lens for $799, with the 18-140mm F3.5-5.6G lens for $1199, and with the 18-55 and AF-P 70-300mm F4.5-6.3G lenses for $1149. All of these kits will be available this month.

Nikon D5600 DSLR Camera Becomes Official
The DSLR is equipped with a range of features that encourages users to capture and communicate their stories. The touch-screen operation so popular with the D5500 has been further enhanced in the D5600. Crop function for use during playback zoom is a new addition with the frame advance bar that allows scrolling through images in playback mode easily.
The camera also incorporates a time-lapse movie function equivalent to that of the more advanced Nikon D7200, enabling users to capture changing scenes over a time period and create stunning time-lapse videos. See more technical specifications and sample photos with the brochure.
