Entry Level DSLRs

Your quality time captured in the quality it deserves

Taking snapshots with a smartphone is convenient, but are those photos really good enough for preserving your precious moments? Nikon’s Entry-Level DSLRs capture photos and videos so sharp and vibrant, so rich with color and detail—so lifelike—they bring back all the feelings of the moments they preserve. The cameras are also easy to use, compact enough to take on every outing and just outright fun.

Photos and videos that amaze and impress

At the heart of every Nikon Entry-Level DSLR is a high-performance DX-format CMOS image sensor that is approximately 20X larger than the sensor in a typical smartphone camera**. That sensor, along with Nikon's EXPEED image processing system and an exciting collection of NIKKOR lenses, combine to produce breathtaking photos and videos with rich, vibrant colors, sharp details and softly blurred backgrounds. Enlarge your photos to poster size, crop in without losing detail, shoot in low light situations without a flash and much more.

**Typical smartphone image sensor size 4.8mm x 3.6mm. Nikon DX-format image sensor size 23.5mm x 15.6mm. Typical smartphone sensor size based on Nikon research as of April 1, 2014.
