With Wi-fi connectivity the new D5300 is designed for those looking to upgrade from compacts.

It’s just under a year ago since we witnessed the arrival of the D5200 and Nikon has announced the D5300. Slotting in above the D5200 in the Nikon line-up, the D5300 is designed to appeal to aspiring users looking to upgrade from a compact, as well as what Nikon terms ‘networkers’, which hints at its Wi-fi functionality, but more on that shortly.

While it shares a virtually identical resolution to the D5200, Nikon claims the 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor inside the D5300 is newly developed and like its big brother the D7100, the sensor does away for the need of an anti-aliasing filter for improved sharpness.
