The black Nikon D5300 DSLR Camera features a DX-format 24.2 megapixel sensor and EXPEED 4 image processor to produce high-resolution still imagery and full HD video with notable low-light sensitivity to ISO 12800 and a fast continuous shooting rate of 5 fps. The sensor design omits the traditional optical low-pass filter in order to gain the utmost sharpness and resolution from both photos and videos. Complementing the imaging assets are both a versatile 39-point autofocus system, with nine cross-type sensors, and a 2,016-pixel RGB sensor for precise exposure metering in a wide variety of lighting conditions. Additionally, 1920 x 1080p movie recording is supported, in multiple frame rates up to 60 fps, with full-time continuous auto focusing capabilities. The compact, yet durably designed, camera body incorporates both an optical pentamirror optical viewfinder along with a large 3.2" 1,037k-dot vari-angle LCD monitor, which features a 180° swivel design to better support working from high and low angles. Also integrated into the D5300 are both Wi-Fi and GPS modules, which enable advanced image sharing capabilities as well as location-based image tagging. When paired with an Android or iOS mobile device, remote viewing and control over the shutter release is possible from a distance and a vast network of pre-populated Points of Interest adds to the overall geotagging functionality. For creatively enhancing the look and feel of imagery in-camera, a wide range of Picture Control modes, Scene Modes, and Special Effects modes are available as well as a host of in-camera image editing capabilities for adjusting settings prior to sharing. Built-in HDR and Active D-Lighting modes can also be used to optimize exposure results by preserving highlight and shadow details for an extended range of apparent tones.

WELL THATS PRETTY NEAT
To start, The picture quality is great. They are very clean and crisp even when zooming in on the photo. I had done a lot of research on several different cameras between nikon and canon in order to make the best possible choice for my situation. I am a novice photo/video at the time but this is expanding ideas already for what to come.
There are several features that I like about this (I have not tried all), first one being the swivel screen. As I get into vlogging, this is becoming very beneficial in that area and makes it easier to capture the area without constantly going behind the camera. It is slower at taking pics when in live mode but the screen is mainly for video anyways.
The 2 lenses it comes with (zoom and wide) do their jobs, quite well if I may add. The zoom lense brings you much closer to notice the difference with out it. The wide lense is the same, wide enough to capture much more and kind of reminded me of a GoPro. Very nice to have both of these.
I like having to memory cards to start off which allows you to start right away although you will need to charge the battery, wasn't charged but least of concerns. (charge time was about 2 hours)
Some say that it might be a pain having to unlock the lense every time so it takes longer to use on the spot. In my opinion its not that big of a deal. One of those things where the more you do it, the fast you get and you begin not to think about it. The entire camera even with the lense is fairly light weight and easy to work with.
My remote although did not work, not sure if this is a battery or remote issue. Ill try to swap the battery to see if that is the problem. I can see the remote coming in handy though.
The only down fall with this kit at this point for me the tripod, it has its good and bad. The good is that it has a quick release mechanism which screws to the bottom of the camera which then allows you to simply click the camera on the tripod, very nice feature. The bad is that the panning left to right, up and down is not smooth. The joints may have to sprayed down but right out of the box it catches, kind of like friction so the shots wont be smooth but have a jittery look.
Over all as I get into this camera I am enjoying several features that can make shooting vids/pics much easier with a cleaner look. The other thing to invest in if its important to you is an external mic. This camera has a slot for it so make use of it. The audio quality is not good to put it out there. You don't have to invest in a $200+ mic (i just got a $30 mic) but get something that attaches to the top where the ext flash would go. That is all.

Great for the price
By Marcus lions
All the accessories are Vivitar except the tripod, wide angel lense, and telephoto lens which are Xit photo brand. I tried the wide angle with a few macro shots of a dollar bill and it worked pretty well. The big tripod is pretty nice with metal legs but the top where the camera mounts is all pretty cheap plastic; it doesn't affect the usability of it but don't except it to last more than a couple of years. Everything works like it should and will last if taken care of. Don't expect high quality accessories their more like the lower end of mid quality but for the price it's more than enough. (The pics are all on the default settings on the camera except the picture quality is changed to fine. I opened the camera switched to close up mode took a few photos and then put on the wide angle and took a few more. Since I'm no expert you can judge for yourself the quality of the Xit photo wide angle lense.)
