Shoot from dawn to dusk with no problems.

Enhanced Video Features

Record cinema-quality Full HD footage with photo-like sharpness, vibrant color and crystal clear stereo sound. Pair the D5600 with an AF-P lens, which uses a stepping motor for smooth, near-silent autofocus, to ensure maximum audio fidelity. Create amazing time-lapse movies right in the camera.
