24.2 mp, built-in wi-fi, on board geotagging, the new Nikon 5300 brings it home for a right price

Right before PhotoPlus EXPO the big guns continue to bring new product to the market place.
This new Nikon 5300 seems to take on a lot of attributes from it’s bigger full frame sibling, with massive 24.2 MP, Nikon’s famous 39 point AF system, and advanced scene recognition system.

But the bigger news for Nikon is that the wi-fi and GPS is BUILT-IN!
Yep, no more dongle or extra accessory to buy, (and lose). IN all honestly I have not tried the 2 systems, so will with hold any judgment until then.

Being a DX or APS-C format, the size of the unit remains manageable. Nikon will offer it in 3 colors: Red, Back and Grey. Not gaudy, but they’ve told you the market.

The addition of a variable angle monitor seems to complete the full package, for a well priced ($799 body only) full featured Nikon camera.
