Nikon D5300 review: Build quality
Externally, there's not much to distinguish the D5300 from its predecessor. It has shed 25g and a few millimetres here and there. The 3.2in, 1,036,800-dot screen is a little bigger and sharper than before, and keeps its fully-articulated design – a big asset for video, macro and self-portrait shots. The drive mode button has been relocated from the top plate to the left side, just below the lens release button. That arguably makes it easier to reach, but harder to find when you're still getting accustomed to the controls.
As before, the self-timer function deactivates after each frame, which is pretty annoying when using it to avoid shaking the camera when it's mounted on a tripod. Our other grumbles about the controls remain unresolved, too, with few labelled buttons making it over-reliant on menu navigation. Some key features such as the auto ISO mode are buried deep within the main menu.
Nikon D5300 review: GPS and Wi-Fi
GPS and Wi-Fi are built in. These features are relatively rare among SLRs, and it's the first time they've been built into a Nikon SLR; they won't appeal to everyone but they do to us. GPS provides a fun way to browse photo collections in Lightroom or Picasa, and Wi-Fi means you can transfer photos to a smartphone or tablet and upload to social media without waiting until you get home.
Control the focus point via a smartphone app
The app also acts as a remote control for taking photos, complete with a live view stream. There's touchscreen control over the autofocus area. The shutter button captures a photo without focusing, giving a shutter lag of around 200ms. The camera's controls can't be used in this mode, but there's yet another mode that lets the user take photos with the camera in the normal way and transfers them as soon as they're captured. This should be perfect for inspecting photos on a high-resolution tablet, but the implementation could be better. It only works if the app is specifically waiting to receive a photo rather than inspecting the previous one. Because the iOS app isn't a native iPad app, it doesn't take advantage of retina displays.
