NEW MID-RANGE APS-C SLR BRIDGE RACER The D5600 gets Nikon’s SnapBridge technology for continuous photo sharing HOt on the heels of the launch of the D3400 – Nikon’s first beginnerclass SLR to incorporate SnapBridge – comes the step-up D5600.

This enables 2MP JPEG versions of your photos to be automatically transferred to your device, even while you’re shooting, ready for you to share. SnapBridge also allows you to manually transfer full-resolution versions of your pictures and to control the…
