Nikon's D5600 midrange DSLR hits the US this month for $800

The camera is a minor update to the D5500 from 2015.

Nikon revealed its D5600 camera back in November, but it didn't share any pricing or availability details. Today, however, it announced that the midrange DSLR, which includes an 18-55mm AF-P DX Nikkor lens, will arrive in the US later this month for $800. Compared to the D500, Nikon focused on connectivity improvements with the new model, adding support for Bluetooth and NFC. Additionally, the 3.2-inch touchscreen features functions like cropping and a frame-advance bar.

Other than that, you get a 24.2-megapixel sensor (DX-format), an Expeed 4 image processor, 5 -rames-per-second continuous shooting and a max ISO of 25,600. All told, that should be more than enough to get some Nikon fans excited about the D5600.
