      Great Entry Level DSLR

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

      As I write this review, I have taken approximately 2000 shots and have put the D5600 and both kit lenses through most of the paces. I am an amateur photographer/videographer, exclusively using my gear for home/family work. My advice for anyone growing into this hobby is always get the most camera you are willing to bring with you. If its too heavy, too big, too complicated, too expensive, etc., you wont bring it with you and you will just be throwing away money. The Nikon D5600 is the most camera I am willing to bring with me. The Canon T7i is a fantastic direct competitor as well, and you should give it serious consideration. At the end of the day, the T7i is slightly heavier, considerably less battery life, and more expensive. Although, it does have better autofocus, slightly faster fps burst, and in camera stabilization. Whichever you choose, they are both great overall entry level DSLR's. It comes down to what you value more. I highly value less weight and longer battery life, and the D5600 wins these categories. The Nikon D3400 and D7500 are also great choices if you simply must get Nikon. I found that the D3400 (and similar) is just missing too lacking in many features and capabilities vs the D5600. It is less weight and gets even more battery life, but they definitely cut corners on the D3400. Important corners. In fact, many cheaper and more convenient point and shoots can perform the same or better than the D3400, so why not just get something that fits in your pocket. The D7500 is better than the D5600, but again its what you value. Image quality and low light capability differences between those two are not far apart, and you would be splitting hairs to declare a winner. What you will get with the D7500 is faster fps burst with a deeper buffer, better autofocus, weather sealing, in camera focus drive (for older lenses), better shutter life expectancy, and a few other minor things. However, it is significantly heavier, double the cost, and less friendly view screen. Seasoned pro's could probably carry the D7500 just fine for hours on end. I was tired of holding it just after 15 mins. Ive carried the D5600 for 4 hours and not got tired. That means the D5600 comes with, and the D7500 does not. After about 2000 shots and a few hours of video, I am loving my D5600. It has met or exceeded all my photography and videography expectations. And, I feel like I have room to grow with it, which is also important to me. No, it doesnt do 4k video. No, its not high bitrate. The video capabilities are for the occasional video, and its good enough for that. In find the photo capabilities to be outstanding for this price point. There are better cameras for photo, but not anywhere near this price point. I have attached two samples, since that is all BB lets you attach to reviews. These are with the 18-55VR and 70-300 (non-VR) kit lenses. The flower shot is not enhanced. The moon shot is minimally enhanced, because, well, the moon is very bright. Speaking of the lenses, dont listen to the naysayers. The 18-55VR and 70-300 (non-VR) are both very capable and perfectly serviceable lenses. The 18-55VR is a no brainer, and you should absolutely get that one if you dont already have it. The 70-300 is not VR and that is a con in some situations. It is mostly a tripod lens, but that doesnt mean you cant get at least ok shots with it (see moon shot). The 55-200 VR is currently on sale around one fifty, you should consider that instead or in addition to the 70-300 non-VR. Yes, there are better lenses than these. However, they can get very expensive really quick. For the price of these three lens you cant go wrong. In summary, this is a great entry level DSLR that rivals much more expensive cameras where it counts, yet is small and light enough that you will want to bring it with you all the time. Sure, it doesnt get 4k video. Its not going to get the low light capabilities of the full frames. It doesnt have ridiculously fast bursts with a buffer as deep as the ocean. As far as all around shooters go, however, you would be hard pressed to find this many features and capabilities in this small and light package, and anywhere near this price point (outside of the Canon T7i). Eventually, mirrorless interchangeable cameras may render the entry level DSLR obsolete, but that day is not today. If thats your thing, great. Have at it. Make sure to bring 3-4 extra batteries and a bucket of ice. If you don’t want to spend your day changing batteries and continually have to stop for the camera to cool down, the D5600 is a great choice for smaller and lighter.

      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.

      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...

      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

      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.

      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!!

      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..
