Why Nikon D5600 is one of the best DSLR Camera for serious Photography Enthusiasts, but is it for you?


Recently a friend reached out to figure out which camera is appropriate for her daughter, who is in School and has keen interest in Photography. She was mainly confused between Mirrorless and DSLR. We exchanged few chats on whatsapp and after a call, we reached to a conclusion for buying an entry level DSLR. Then we started exploring options across brands but photographer's mom has affinity towards Nikon.

1. Nikon D5600 has 24 Megapixel CMOS sensor

You may want to chose other camera over Nikon D5600, if following capabilities are important as well as deal-breaker for you :

1. It's little heavy but what it offers can't be found in camera with weight less than what Nikon D5600 is. 

2.  Nikon D5600 doesn't have in-body stabilisation, but this is something you will hardly get in any entry level DSLR.

There are many obvious features offered by Nikon D5600, but hope above details will help you make your decision.
