Nikon just announced its latest midrange SLR, the D5600, in Japan.
It’s a very minor update to the D5500, with the wireless file transfer and remote control as the big addition. Nikon brands this as Snapbridge, which transmits images to an Android or iOS device via Bluetooth and uses Wi-Fi to support remote control.
The D5600 also adds time-lapse movie capture, a feature previously reserved for higher-end Nikon SLRs like the D7200 and D810. Exposure smoothing prevents the flickering look that can occur when shooting time-lapse movies.
Aside from that, the D5600 is the same, solid SLR as its predecessor. It features a 24MP APS-C image sensor, 1080p video recording, a 5fps capture rate, a 39-point autofocus system, and a vari-angle LCD with touch input support. The D5500 performed admirably when we reviewed it last year, earning a 4-star rating.
It’s not known at this time when the D5600 is coming to the US. This isn’t the fist time that Nikon has launched a camera in this manner—the D5200 bowed in Japan in November 2012. It was announced for sale in the US at CES the following January.
