Enhanced Video Features
Record cinema-quality Full HD footage with photo-like sharpness, vibrant color and crystal clear stereo sound. Pair the D5600 with an AF-P lens, which uses a stepping motor for smooth, near-silent autofocus, to ensure maximum audio fidelity. Create amazing time-lapse movies right in the camera.
Explore full manual mode when you're ready. Capture pictures with wide dynamic range using built-in HDR. The D5600 puts unlimited creative potential in your hands. Create eye-catching compositions thanks to the high-quality optical viewfinder, which delivers an incredibly clear view through the lens and when you want to focus on your subject, shooting through the viewfinder lets you block out sunlight and distractions.
