If you're holding out for a replacement for Nikon's mid-range D5500 DSLR, you may be disappointed with the latest model. The D5600 is a very minor refresh that is obviously intended to act as a stop-gap until an all-new version comes along. Nikon added new wireless capability via NFC and Bluetooth, which gives you a constant connection to your smartphone via the not-very-beloved SnapBridge app. It's also got new options for the 3.2-inch touchscreen, including cropping and a frame-advance bar.

Nikon also added the time-lapse movie functions available on pricier models, but otherwise, the D5600 is exactly the same as the D5500. That means you'll get a 24.2-megapixel sensor with no optical low-pass filter, up to 25,600 ISO, an Expeed 4 image processor, WiFi and a 5 fps maximum shooting speed. For video, never Nikon's strong point, it can do up to 1080p at 60fps. Nikon didn't reveal the price, but the D5500 was $900 when it launched last year. The company said it will reveal US availability at a later date.
