Nikon D5300

Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.

3.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon D5300

An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.

4.Has a hot shoe
Nikon D5300

A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.

5.Is a system camera
Nikon D5300

A system camera has lots of changeable parts such as lenses, flashes and other accessories. They offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.

6.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Nikon D5300

The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.

Optics

1.has AF tracking
Nikon D5300

With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.

2.focus points

39

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
