Camera Review
Introduction | Nikon D5300 sensor performance | Nikon D5300 vs Nikon D5200 vs Nikon D3200: No improvement | Nikon D5300 vs Canon EOS 700D vs Sony SLT Alpha 58 | Conclusion

With a DxOMark Sensor score of 83 points, the new Nikon D5300 performs very well and is typical of current Nikon sensors generally. Indeed it sits in 12th place overall in our database and ranks just ahead of the full-frame Nikon D3s and medium format Pentax 645D, and level with the Nikon D7100. The new model has excellent color depth, a wide dynamic range of just under 14Evs, and it achieves a very respectable 1338 ISO low light score.
