Nikon D5600 finally gets a price tag of $800

Nikon announced a successor to the D5500 last year in the form of the D5600 in November. While a few details were released, the company hadn’t announced the most crucial detail of the mid-range DSLR, its price. We finally have the price of the new product as the company announced it at the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The D5600 will be available in the US later this month for $800 which is roughly about Rs 55,000. This includes the pricing of an 18-55mm AF-P DX Nikkor lens. As for the features, it is pretty much similar to the D5500 which means the same 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor excluding an optical low pass filter, a 3.2-inch touchscreen, EXPEED 4 image processor, 5-frames-per-second, 39-point autofocus along with a 100-25,600 ISO range.

There are some new  additions to the camera including Nikon SnapBridge, which is a combination of low-powered Bluetooth along with Wi-Fi. With Bluetooth, energy drain is low while maintaining a constant connection to a smartphone or tablet. It also helps in instantly sending photos to a smartphone and even back them up to cloud storage. One can use Wi-Fi for remote operation and since the D5600 comes with time-lapse, that will be quite handy. The best thing is that you can set up an interval to take shots and the camera can automatically compile those images into a time-lapse video.
