Unboxing: Nikon D5300 DSLR with 18-55 VR II kit lens


Presenting…my new DSLR camera for 2014 is finally here! My hunt for a new DSLR camera is now over, if you noticed here in my blog, I always post some prices of cameras and lenses that I found in stores and online buy and sell sites. I was researching for a new camera and that’s a sign for me to move on after enjoying the Olympus camera brand, it was a good experience with Olympus through the years, but I have to move forward and try other cameras. I have lots of selections,but I must choose one only.

After DSLR, I went to mirrorless camera, but I found some cons about it when doing event coverage and shooting long video, but the good part for mirrorless is that they are light weight, handy and good for travel photography. But then I just need more power for the imaging and shutter speed, so I went back to DSLR and grabbed the latest model with tech features that I needed – like Wifi and good for video shoot.

Anyway…I present to you the Nikon D5300 with 18-55 VR II kit lens (SRP PHP40,990)
I’m such a n00b for Nikon and I don’t understand about the VR thing. but…..

Thanks to Nikon Philippines for this camera and this mark our partnership for being my official camera partner here in my Azrael’s Merryland Blog. Watch out soon for photography posting in my blog, FB network and Instagram, all are taken by a Nikon D5300


Here’s a closer look of the box



I love that seal…. 2 years warranty from Nikon Philippines.
Just make sure you keep the receipt and also the warranty papers.


I read some reviews online and they said that this camera is light weight and also with the same image level of Nikon D7100. This camera is a better version of D5200 but they say that its rig is the same with D7000.


Inside the box…warranty papers and that Manfrotto keychain
