18.0 Megapixel CMOS, top of the line DSLR
Was looking at DSLRs.. specifically the Canon T3i but it looks too expensive and too much to carry
Nikon’s ‘advanced beginner’ DSLR, the D5300 takes the D5200’s place between the entry-level D3200 and the enthusiast-targeted D7100 in the company’s APS-C lineup.
The D5300 offers a 24MP sensor, articulated rear LCD, numerous physical controls but without the twin-dial interface and professional-grade AF system of the decidedly higher-market D7100. This professional budget DSLR is nice and sleek and offers amazing quality for the price!
I personally own this camera and absolutely love it! Couple it with a nice 35 or 50mm f/1.8 lens and this camera becomes a beautiful shooter - test video: https://youtu.be/agqnDFkFrQ0
24.2 MP CMOS DX-format sensor

ISO 100-12800 (expandable to 25600)
1080 (60, 50, 30, 25, 24 fps) HD video
I own it, it's a lot smaller than it looks. Kit lens will do great but if you have $60 for a telephoto get the Nikkor 70-210, it's great. Get this for sure
