Nikion has announced November 24 local availability of its update to the D5500, the D5600.
The new camera is similarly specced to the camera it replaces but is smaller, lighter and features Snapbridge connectivity.
It has a 3.2-inch touchscreen monitor which can be flipped out and rotated. Sensitivity is from ISO 100 – 25600. A crop function has been added to the touchscreen tools.
Time-lapse movies can also be recorded and transferred to a device via SnapBridge. With SnapBridge, image transfer can continue even after the camera has been turned off. It also enables uploading to Nikon’s spot in the Cloud, Nikon Image Space.
‘The Nikon D5600 embodies the sentiment that people enjoy sharing how they see the world in different creative means and experiences. Equipped with a range of features including SnapBridge connectivity via built-in Bluetooth, the D5600 encourages users to capture, communicate and share their favourite memories and moments seamlessly to their social devices,’ said James Murray, director of Sales & Marketing, Nikon Australia. ‘Compact and lightweight, the D5600 fits comfortably within a users’ backpack, allowing them to capture their favourite candid moments on-the-go, from family gatherings and events to stunning horizons and landscapes whilst travelling.’
No price is supplied, but the D5500 had an RRP of around $1150 with 18-55mm lens. The new camera has to date not been announced in the USA.
