The Nikon D5600

So you may just be getting into Toy Photography or even other types of photography but are wondering what camera you need.

It can be tough finding the right kit for the job, so heres a little review on the camera I use and how it competes with others out there


So the main thing people look at when diving in to a purchase is the price point. The Nikon D5600 comes in at the Beginner/Intermediate camera price range with the price between £500-£600 New but Nikon have announced they will be discontinuing the D5600 in place for their newer models, so a used D5600 is around £200-£350, Note that these prices are body only.


  • Fitting: Nikon FX / DX

  • Resolution: 21-25MP

  • Bluetooth

  • Multi-angle rear LCD screen

  • Optical Viewfinder

  • 24.2MP DX-Format CMOS Sensor

  • EXPEED 4 Image Processor

  • 3.2" 1.037m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen

  • Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 60 fps

  • Multi-CAM 4800DX 39-Point AF Sensor

  • ISO 100-25600 and 5 fps Shooting

  • SnapBridge Bluetooth and Wi-Fi with NFC

  • Time-Lapse Movie Recording

The D5600 offers some of Nikons top features while still on a budget. It is Snapbridge compatible which is great if you edit using your phone or even if you transfer them to upload straight to social media. The battery life is pretty good as it gives a good day or so of shooting before needing a recharge. But always carry more than one battery just incase.

Pros and Cons

So there are pros and cons to everything and the Nikon D5600 definitly has its fair share.

  • Great Budget camera

  • Offers Nikons best features

  • Lightweight

  • Compatible with 3rd party accessories

  • Discontinued so only available used

  • Needs wire to contect to PC

  • Can be pricey if bought with lense

So overall I would reccomend the Nikon D5600 for anyone looking to get a DSLR but sticking to a budget.
