Nikon D5600 Sensor Review at DxOMark: “An Excellent Performer”

DxOMark published their Nikon D5600 sensor review and test results: The Nikon D5600 sensor achieved an overall DxOMark sensor score of 84 points, with a combination of 24.1 bits color sensitivity, 14 EV dynamic range, and 1306 ISO low-light score – An excellent performer!

With an overall DxOMark score of 84 points, the Nikon D5600 sensor is an excellent performer, but with no improvement over the earlier D5500, it looks as if the same the sensor is used in both. Given that it’s the same pixel count, this is hardly surprising, and while that’s no bad thing, it would have been encouraging to see some advancement, especially as the camera specs are practically identical.

Overall, Nikon’s best-performing DX sensor is the one found in the D7200, but the differences in performance between them are so slight that you can pretty much ignore it when making a buying decision.

Conclusion from DxOMark:

Nikon’s strategy of offering similar sensor performance throughout the series of DX-format DSLRs continues with the D5600. In some ways, after seeing such good performance so often before, it’s easy to be blasé or apathetic. Given that the only weak point of the D5600 is that we’ve come to expect more from an update, it is perhaps somewhat unfair to criticize Nikon for releasing the D5000 (and D3000) models so frequently. Nevertheless, with 24-MP in DX format being extremely demanding on lens performance, it is unlikely that we’ll see an increase in pixel count until Nikon updates more lenses, or expands the range of AF-P lenses in the lineup. Needless to say, the Nikon D5600 is difficult to ignore and a solid choice at the price.
