    Former Pro Photog loves this camera

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This review is written from my standpoint as a stills photographer. I have no interest in video. For 5 years I worked as a photographer shooting weddings, portraits and selling an occasional fine art print. For that work I used Canon gear to include the 5D3, 5D2, 6D and L lenses. Due to a personal issue that arose I sold all of my Canon gear in 2015. I am thus purchasing camera gear with a clean slate without being locked into any manufacturer. I owned Olympus mirrorless E-M5 and E-PM2 for the past year but did not feel that they offered an upgrade path that would support low light photography should I choose to photograph weddings again in the future. The new E-M1 II does not appear to offer an improvement to ISO that I would personally consider useable beyond ISO 1600. I chose Best Buy so that I could compare 5 camera bodies in person: Canon SL2, T7i and 80D. Nikon D5600 and D7200. Ultimately I chose the D5600 due to size, features and build quality. I have found ISO 3200 to be very good and also believe ISO 6400 can be very good IF the picture is properly exposed. I have not attempted ISO values beyond that. I did successfully use SnapBridge this morning to connect and transfer images to my IPhone 6+. I certainly would like to see the app improved and made more streamlined and easier but it is useable with my phone. I transfered images, edited them in PhotoShop Express and used the phone as a remote to the camera. I am looking forward to learning all of the features this camera offers and acquiring some high quality prime lenses to use with it. Highly recommended!

    Excellent camera

    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    The camera itself is an excellent purchase, I read many reviews before deciding on Nikon D5600. What I should of researched a little more is kit lenses. This is my first DSLR camera purchase and If I can do it all over again knowing what I know now, I would of bought just the camera body . I already purchased 2 lenses and will probably sell the kit lenses that came with it. Camera has a nice feel in the hand, feels very well built. The touch screen makes life a lot easier and it is a big reason why I went with this camera over the older D5300 that was a lot cheaper. Overall happy with my purchase just wish I bought it without the kit lenses and saved some money.

    Awesome camera...

    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    I have had my camera for about a week now. I have owned Nikon film cameras before this ( favorite being a black body FM), but this is my first experience with a dslr. This camera is very easy to get started with, using the auto settings, but it has the capability to be used in the fully manual mode, allowing you to experiment with different settings. I have seen comments saying the Snapbridge was inconsistent, but this has not been my experience. I bought a 64 gb memory card for it, but with the Snapbridge I have another 256 gb available in my phone. It transfers the image files flawlessly. I highly recommend this camera to anyone that wants a great experience with your photography.

    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    It is a really great camera! My first really nice expensive camera.. I purchased it just a couple weeks before going on a vacation. Deff need to do a bit of research if your a beginner like myself. I experimented a little before we went on our trip an thought I got the jist of it but when I got to Dominican Republic for some reason it wouldn't focus right, I couldn't really figure out why but I did get some good shots .. like I said it's a great beginner camera you just need to do your research on how to work it. I'm happy with my purchase. Nice and clear shots

    First DSLR Camera

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I plan on updating this review for some time until I'm done with it. First off shipping was on point, like usual from Best Buy. So this is my first DSLR and was debating on the 3300, but decided to get this one instead. I just wanted something a little more for the money I was dishing out. Couldn't play with it on day one because the battery didn't come fully charged, but that's understandable. Gripping the camera felt pretty natural when I was taking some pictures around the house. I most definitely like the snap bridge app. It's a great option that this camera has and works on point with my GS7. More to come...

    Awesome dslr camera for a beginner

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    The NIKON D5600 offers so many options for photo taking. In addition the user friendly touch screen simplifies the photo process. I love the fact how much natural light the camera lenses takes in especially in dark rooms or settings. It brightens up a photo automatically. The 2 lenses that came with the kit provides versatility for regular settings and the long range zoom lens provides exceptional zoom. The battery provides a long time frame of a charge. Also the charger provides about 1 1/2 hours to fully charge the battery. I found this camera to be a great quality camera from how you hold the camera to the quality of photos. Great job NIKON!!

    Absolutely love this camera!

    I researched this purchase for sometime, even watching u-tube comparisons between several cameras at this level. Some of the features I love best are the touch screen, which makes it so easy for manual settings. And the sharp detail in the pictures it takes, The focus and sharpness of this camera are the best in it's category. Also love the pivoting viewer. Helps a ton when taking pictures above other people. I've had Cannons for 20 years and just switched to Nikon. I'm very happy with this selection and found it to be an easy adjustment..

    Best purchase ever

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I got the Nikon D5600 as a replacement for my Nikon D5100 and am I happy. With the AF-P lens it is much quicker to focus which means I get the picture I was shooting for. My older 5100 would sometimes seek to focus but hesitate a microsecond and the shot would be gone. I have only shot a retirement event at work with it but am extremely happy with the results. In the 80's I shot a couple of weddings for friends on film so I do have some experience as a photographer but my 5100 was my first foray into the DSLR world.
