2. Creative expression
Discover a new perspective on your subjects, as you shoot them creatively from high and low angles. The D5600’s vari-angle monitor ensures comfortable live view photography, whatever position you hold the camera in — up high, down low, or turning the monitor toward yourself for a self-portrait. The wide, 8.1-cm/3.2-in. screen opens up to 180° horizontally, and flips up and down from +180° to -90°, with a touch interface that makes it even easier to use.
Time-lapse movie mode, previously only available with advanced models, is now offered by the D5600. This powerful artistic tool lets you transform scenes and subjects into dramatic, high-speed sequences entirely within the camera. The camera’s exposure smoothing function helps ensure fluid transitions when capturing scenes where the brightness changes significantly, such as at dawn or dusk. Time-lapse movies generated in-camera can be transferred to a smart device with SnapBridge for instant sharing.
Interval timer shooting mode lets you take a series of images at fixed intervals for up to 9,999 frames, which can be used to produce more creative time-lapse videos*. Thanks to the large image size, it’s possible to add camera movements in the video while editing the pictures into Full-HD.
*Requires third-party software.
Turn your stills and movies into unique works of art with Special Effects. In live view shooting, the effects are shown in real time, allowing you to check how they’ll look before taking the shot. Combined with the multiple angles delivered by the vari-angle monitor, this gives you endless possibilities for creating unique images.

Choose from Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait, Landscape and Flat. You can also adjust the parameter settings for preset options — including sharpness, contrast and clarity — within the camera, and save them for future shoots.
3. Superior quality images
Whenever you come across interesting scenes, the D5600 promises to preserve such moments of inspiration in high-quality images. That’s thanks to a combination of unrivaled Nikon technologies working together. The camera’s DX-format CMOS image sensor is designed without an optical low-pass filter (OLPF), to bring out the full resolving power of its 24.2 effective megapixels. Combined with the powerful EXPEED 4 image-processing engine and the more faithful rendering of NIKKOR lenses, it achieves exquisite detail reproduction. Finally, there’s Nikon’s image creation system, Picture Control, which helps you to achieve the desired images.
When light is beautiful but scarce, such as in night scenes or dimly lit interiors, the D5600’s wide standard ISO range of 100 to 25600 allows you to keep shooting crisp, clean images. Using a high ISO setting also enables you to shoot at faster shutter speeds, letting you take blur-free pictures with less noise without using a flash.
When shooting scenes with drastic contrasts in lighting, such as a subject backlit against the sky, the D5600 gives you two options. Active D-Lighting adjusts the contrast to render the scene in true-to-life brightness, and can be used for moving subjects. HDR* produces a single, striking image by taking two shots at different exposures with a single shutter release and combining the highlights and shadows of the two. This function works best with stationary subjects.
If you aren’t sure what camera settings to use, you can let the D5600 decide for you. Its 16 scene modes give you optimized settings for a broad range of situations — whether you’re at an indoor party or taking shots of pets. In live view, simply activate the scene auto selector, and the camera will pick the most appropriate mode.
Scene modes on the D5600
Portrait ∙ Landscape ∙ Child ∙ Sports ∙ Close up ∙ Night portrait ∙ Night landscape ∙ Party/indoor ∙ Beach/snow ∙ Sunset ∙ Dusk/dawn ∙ Pet portrait ∙ Candlelight ∙ Blossom ∙ Autumn colors ∙ Food
Scene auto selector on the D5600
Auto* ∙ Auto (flash off)* ∙ Portrait ∙ Landscape ∙ Close up ∙ Night portrait
*Auto or Auto (flash off) are selected when the camera identifies situations not covered by Portrait, Landscape, Close up or Night portrait mode, or for scenes suited to Auto or Auto (flash off).
Sometimes the best moments last for just the blink of an eye. Fortunately, the D5600 can keep up with the action. Thanks to its high-speed continuous shooting rate of 5 fps* with high AF performance, you’ve got a much better chance of capturing the decisive moment — with vivid detail delivered by the high pixel count.
*Based on CIPA Guidelines.
When you’re capturing fast-moving action, you want a clear view of what’s happening. That’s when a D-SLR’s optical viewfinder comes in handy. Whether you’re shooting a sports match or a rock gig, you can follow your subjects in real time, letting you concentrate on shooting. Unlike taking pictures with a smart device, viewfinder shooting encourages you to maintain a secure grip of the camera, keeping it level and minimizing camera shake.
Some subjects move too quickly and erratically. The D5600’s autofocus system helps you acquire and keep track of your target with remarkable precision, using 39 focus points that cover a wide area of the frame. Choose from multiple AF-area modes depending on what you’re shooting: single-point AF, dynamic-area AF, 3D-tracking and auto-area AF.
The D5600 can adapt to a diverse array of shooting and lighting situations. Nikon’s exclusive Scene Recognition System uses information from the camera’s 2016-pixel RGB sensor and image sensor to accurately analyze the subject’s situation, including brightness and color. This sophisticated technology realizes very precise control of autofocus, auto exposure, i-TTL flash control, auto white balance, etc.
When changing lenses, sometimes dust can stick to the optical filter in front of the camera’s image sensor. The D5600 uses several preventive measures to stop such dust from causing image degradation. Its Image Sensor Cleaning function vibrates the optical filter at multiple frequencies in order to shake off dust every time the camera is switched on and off. It can also be activated using the menu. Nikon rigorously tests body parts prior to assembly to prevent dust dispersion after mounting.
4. Comfortable operation
The D5600’s highly refined touch interface makes a range of operations incredibly intuitive to use. Its newly added frame advance bar (as on the D500 and D5) allows you to scroll through sequences of images at high speed, and it is possible to specify the area of an image to be trimmed by pinching out. The touch Fn feature lets you make adjustments to a pre-assigned camera setting using your thumb, without looking away from the viewfinder, and now includes auto sensitivity control on/off switching. With these features and more, handling the camera comes naturally, just like using a smart device.
Operations available via the D5600’s touch screen ・ Shooting: Touch shutter, touch AF ・ Setting: Touch Fn, scene/effect selection, shutter speed and aperture setting, shooting option change, menu operation ・ Playback: View other images, scroll rapidly to other images (frame advance bar), zoom in (photos only), view thumbnails, view movies
When you’re using a camera for extended periods of time, ergonomics are important. The D5600 manages to be small and light, while still offering a deep grip that’s stable and comfortable in anyone’s hand. The body incorporates a carbon-fiber composite material that’s strong and durable, but also remarkably lightweight. This provides the basis for an innovative monocoque structure, where the exterior covers support the interior. The layout of the internal unit is designed to achieve a slim body with an easy-to-hold grip. It’s a stylish camera too, with a well-integrated surface, buttons and dials, and high-quality finish.
You don’t have to worry about your battery running out while taking pictures with the D5600. Its efficient, energy-saving design allows you to shoot approx. 970 shots per charge* with the EN-EL14a Rechargeable Li-ion Battery. Even when the camera is constantly connected to your smart device via SnapBridge for automatic image transfer, you can keep going for hours.
Note: Battery power is used for wireless communication even when the camera is turned off. If you do not want to use automatic image transfer, please change the “Send while off” setting to “Off”. *Based on CIPA Standards. When Bluetooth or Wi-Fi is not used.
During viewfinder shooting, you can confirm your settings visually by pressing the information button. The D5600’s touch-operated information display comes in two designs (classic and graphic) and three colors (black, blue and white). In the graphic interface, aperture changes are displayed in pictorial form, making it particularly intuitive to use.
The i button makes handling even smoother by giving you direct access to most frequently used settings, without having to use a menu. Options include Picture Control and HDR. During image playback, you can use the i button to jump to the retouch menu or select the images you want to send to your smart devices.
ViewNX-i offers a convenient way to view your JPEG, RAW and movie files, and utilize them in coordination with other Nikon software. And by activating the included ViewNX-Movie Editor software, you can perform simple movie edits, too.
Record all the action in high-quality Full HD and at a frame rate of 60p, which renders fast action incredibly smooth. The D5600’s vari-angle monitor and in-camera time-lapse movie function help fuel your creativity further, while the NIKKOR lens lineup will make you the envy even of professional filmmakers.
If you’re looking to create more professional-style movies, the importance of sound quality can’t be overstated. The D5600 has a quality built-in stereo microphone, and you can also attach an optional ME-1 Stereo Microphone, which picks up less noise caused by the lens operating the autofocus. Both microphones can be fine-tuned automatically, or manually in 20 incremental steps using the camera monitor.

The D5600’s movies and stills may look good on the camera monitor — but just wait until you’ve seen them on a large HDTV screen. It’s easy to hook up the camera to external screens using its HDMI mini-pin connector (Type C). And since the D5600 is compatible with HDMI-CEC, you can operate it using a TV remote control from the comfort of your couch.
6. Broaden your horizons
There’s a very good reason why camera enthusiasts love Nikon: NIKKOR lenses. You’ll probably be happy with the D5600’s excellent kit lens, but if you want to diversify your creative options even more, there’s a huge range of top-quality lenses to choose from. The NIKKOR lineup has an ideal lens for every scene and subject, each one designed and manufactured according to the strictest standards of optical quality. And they’re not just for pros: even beginners will quickly appreciate the difference that NIKKOR lenses make to their still and video shooting.

With a maximum aperture of f/1.8, this lens helps create striking portraits with beautiful soft backgrounds that make your subject stand out. The large aperture also ensures that your pictures turn out great in low light, even without a tripod.
This compact, lightweight micro lens dynamically captures small subjects, while creating beautiful bokeh. It’s perfectly suited for taking stunning close-ups of subjects like flowers or cakes.
Lighting is an essential element in photography, but it’s not always easy to capture subjects exactly the way you want using only ambient light. The D5600 gives you a comprehensive set of tools to control light and achieve your ideal image. Its built-in flash can produce properly exposed images at night, indoors or with backlighting. Moreover, employing optional flash units, such as the SB-500 Speedlight, gives you additional control over the light. By illuminating your subject from one side*, for example, you can highlight its unique characteristics to create a more dramatic picture.
*Using a Speedlight off the D5600 requires a SC-28/SC-29 TTL Remote Cord for connection.
SnapBridge provides an easy way to operate the camera remotely, but if you want more flexibility, such as for recording movies or consecutive shooting from further, WR-R10/WR-T10 Wireless Remote Controllers will come in handy. Utilizing radio waves, they enable remote control over distances of up to 20 m/66 ft*, allowing you to get close to the action while remaining unobtrusive yourself. This is extremely helpful when you’re capturing a sports match or animals in the wild.
*Approximate range at height of about 1.2 m/4 ft; varies with weather conditions and presence of obstacles.
The creative process doesn’t finish with shooting. Capture NX-D, Nikon’s exclusive editing software, draws out the full potential of your images, enabling you to obtain professional-looking results. It offers a wide range of editing options for NEF images (Nikon’s RAW), including an auto retouch brush that lets you easily remove dust spots on an image, as well as white balance, tone curve and exposure compensation controls. It also allows you to change an image’s Picture Control and settings after shooting.
