MELVILLE, N.Y., Oct. 17, 2013

MELVILLE, N.Y., Oct. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Today, Nikon Inc. announced the
latest addition to its legendary digital SLR lineup, the Nikon D5300. Offering
the benefits of SLR performance with the versatility of wireless connectivity,
the D5300 allows users to easily capture and share amazing images and videos.
Though compact and lightweight, the Nikon D5300 packs an enhanced
24.2-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor, EXPEED 4 image processing and the
convenience of built-in Wi-Fi^1. Users now have the power to take both
frame-worthy and share-worthy photos and HD videos with one device no matter
where they are.

"With the Nikon D5300, we are continuing our commitment to delivering
unparalleled performance and image quality while addressing the importance of
staying connected and sharing images with ease," said Masahiro Horie, Director
of Marketing and Planning, Nikon Inc. "By answering the need to share high
quality photos, the Nikon D5300 allows photographers to capture their memories
in astounding clarity and share them with family and friends moments after
they happen."

Advanced Performance for When it Matters Most
Making memorable moments even better, the Nikon D5300 offers stunning image
quality with sharp, crisp detail to preserve life's precious memories. The
enhanced 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor delivers stunning images and HD videos
with heightened clarity and detail due to the removal of the optical low pass
filter (OLPF). From planned family portraits to candid moments, the D5300 has
the performance, along with easy and intuitive features, to help users capture
photos confidently, including:

  oAmazing Low Light Performance – For clean, sharp details even in the most
    challenging lighting conditions including night games and dimly lit
    restaurants, the Nikon D5300 covers a wide ISO range of 100-12,800 and is
    expandable to ISO 25,600.
  oEXPEED 4 Image Processing – Nikon's most recent image processing engine
    drives the rapid response and swift performance of the D5300, while
    maximizing energy efficiency, reducing image noise and delivering
    true-to-life colors.
  oScene Recognition System – To further help users capture the image they
    intend, the Nikon D5300 features Nikon's Scene Recognition System and
    2,016-pixel RGB metering system to analyze and recognize the scene.
    Utilizing these systems results in adjustments to exposure, AF and white
    balance to deliver the best photo possible, whether it's a landscape or
    portrait.
  o39-Point AF System – Nikon's quick and precise 39-point AF system works
    with the Scene Recognition System to accurately acquire and track subjects
    throughout the frame, resulting in tack-sharp images. Kids too active to
    pose for a photo or pets chasing after a toy are easily captured in
    brilliant sharpness for memorable photos.
  o5 Frames-Per-Second – While using the optical viewfinder or in Live View,
    capture great moments that would have otherwise been missed with the
    D5300's 5 frames-per-second (fps) rate.

Share Like Never Before
The D5300 is Nikon's first D-SLR to feature built-in Wi-Fi, allowing the user
to share high quality photos instantly. The Nikon D5300 sends images to the
user's smart device, allowing them to share their D-SLR quality photos through
e-mail and social media. From a winning touchdown to a surprise proposal,
friends and family can now see these important moments clearly captured right
after they happen. The Nikon D5300 also includes built-in GPS, another first
for Nikon D-SLRs. Now the user can geotag images and allow others to see where
life has taken them.

Features for Creativity and Versatility
Compact and lightweight (16.9 oz.), the Nikon D5300 can easily be packed for a
day trip or a planned getaway. The small body of the D5300 affords the
photographer the freedom to travel while still being easy to handle and
comfortable to use. In addition to being able to capture amazing images
anywhere, the D5300 is also packed with additional features to promote
creativity and versatility, including:

  o3.2-inch Vari-Angle LCD monitor – Whether shooting above a crowd or
    getting low to capture the details of a flower, users can explore new
    shots from a dramatic point of view with the large 3.2-inch Vari-angle LCD
    monitor. This super sharp (1,037K-dot) screen allows photographers to
    easily make camera adjustments and read menus, while also allowing them to
    compose the photo they want clearly when shooting from high or low angles.
    The rotating LCD makes it easy to capture "selfies" at an arm's length
    away or frame creative perspectives when capturing still photos and HD
    video.
  oFull HD 1080p Video Capture – Create movies fit for the big screen with
    Full HD 1080p video capture at 60p with built-in stereo, wide ISO range
    for high quality videos in any light and improved full-time AF to keep the
    subject in focus.
  oNIKKOR Compatibility – The Nikon D5300 is compatible with Nikon's
    legendary NIKKOR lenses and powerful system accessories, further adding
    versatility and creativity.
