Camera or a heavy piece of crap?
For someone who is not too much into photography, DSLR Camera Nikon DSLR D5300 is a sheer waste of time. Carrying it around your neck is like carrying around a large piece of rock and soon enough you are all huffy and puffy catching for your breath. And don’t even get me started on too many features and effect which completely confuses an amateur rather than being of significant help.
Awesome Camera, love it!!
Oh how I love this DSLR is almost ineffable. Not because I am a geek who loves photography, probably more than a child likes ice- cream. The photo quality of this thing is like a god sent gift that will wow you almost instantly and you will feel like a pro (doesn’t matter if you are not!!)
Not what I wanted
I wish someone had told me that Nikon is not the best option when you want a trendy looking camera. Firstly it looks huge. This is no way a compact camera as advertised. Sometimes I wonder who runs these product review sites. Anyone calling this a handy camera, not handycam, must surely have huge hands or a WWF wrestler. Leave the weight now the performance too is not that good. The control buttons are placed here and there. It takes time to locate and press them. The kit lens that is like the best feature is so massive and does not capture the finer details in images. Noise reduction settings are so extreme that it seems we are shooting for a silent movie. Was hoping better from Nikon. Now that am stuck with it I have to use it for some time before bank balance builds up for another round of camera buying online. Or perhaps I got to a store first? Time will tell…even for a starting user like me - this Nikon Dslr does not make a good option.
My best camera!
I had been searching for an easy to use camera since am not that experienced with clicking. For me the Nikon D5300 has turned out to be the best option. The images are quite clear. I have been using a Samsung Note and many folks say that the images of Note are best but I differ. Nikon is a proper camera for starters like me and those who don't understand photography much. The build seems solid and the camera does not slip in your grip. The GPS is a quality addition. For folks like us 24 mps are more than sufficient. The HD recording I uses only once during my birthday part and everyone seems to like the quality. One of my friends is very good at this stuff and said that I made the right purchase. The accuracy of colors according to him is awesome for this price. Plus you are getting a CMOS sensor at par with the best in the market today. If you are a professional u might want to look at other options but if not the Nikon DSLR does the job rather well.
