Nikon D3300 overview

  • 1Description

The red Nikon D3300 DSLR Camera is a compact and versatile camera featuring a DX-format 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor and EXPEED 4 image processor. The sensor and processor combine to realize high-resolution imaging, notable low-light sensitivity to an expandable ISO 25600, continuous shooting to 5 fps, and Full HD 1080p video recording capabilities. Additionally, the sensor design omits the traditional optical low-pass filter in order to gain the utmost sharpness and resolution from both photos and videos. These imaging assets are complemented by an 11-point autofocus system, which provides quick and accurate focusing capabilities to suit working with a variety of subject types in nearly any lighting situation. A range of shooting modes and features are also available to help creatively accentuating your imagery, including an Easy Panorama mode as well as Picture Control settings for in-camera adjustment of the color and contrast qualities of your photos and movies.

For live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation, a large 3.0" 921k-dot LCD monitor is available and features a wide 160° viewing angle to better support working from high and low angles. Also enhancing the viewing and shooting abilities of the D3300, the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter can be used to provide Wi-Fi connectivity for wirelessly transferring imagery and remotely controlling the camera from a linked Android or iOS mobile device.

Included with the D3300 camera body is the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II lens; a standard zoom providing a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 27-82.5mm. This lens incorporates a robust VR image stabilization system, which helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed steps to benefit working in low-light conditions. A Super Integrated Coating reduces flare and ghosting to optimize image clarity, contrast, and color neutrality and a rounded seven-blade diaphragm works to create a pleasing out-of-focus quality in shallow depth of field images.

24.2MP DX-Format Sensor and EXPEED 4 Processor
The 24.2 megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 4 processor work together to produce overall high image quality with notable detail, dynamic range, color accuracy, and low-light sensitivity to a native ISO 12800, which is further expandable to ISO 25600. Additionally, the sensor's design omits an optical low-pass filter in order to acquire the greatest amount sharpness and detail from subjects. The EXPEED 4 processor also enables a wealth of speed throughout the camera system, including support for Full HD 1080p movie recording and a full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 5 fps.
Multi-CAM 1000 Autofocus Sensor
Benefitting the high image quality is an apt AF system that employs 11 distinct AF points to quickly acquire focus in a range of lighting conditions from -1 to +19 EV.
Full HD Movie Recording
Full HD 1920 x 1080p movie recording is supported in multiple frame rates up to 60 fps, as well as HD 720p and SD 480p in multiple frame rates, in the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format. During recording, full-time autofocus can be employed, with face-detection and subject-tracking capabilities, for ensured sharpness with a wide variety of subject types. A built-in monaural microphone can be used to record high-quality sound or, alternatively, a microphone input is integrated into the body design to support the use of an external microphone for enhanced quality and control over audio recordings.
Body Design
The D3300 integrates a large 3.0" 921k-dot vari-angle LCD monitor, which features a 160° viewing angle to better support viewing capabilities from high and low working angles. Alternatively, a bright pentamirror optical viewfinder is also integrated into the design for precise eye-level viewing and real-time monitoring of subjects.

A built-in pop-up flash is also available for additional illumination when working in low-light conditions and supports Nikon's i-TTL flash metering system. A hot shoe can be used, too, for connection and optional external flash for even greater lighting control.
AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II Lens
Included with the camera body is the standard zoom AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 27-82.5mm. Designed to be as compact and lightweight as possible, this lens features a retractable lens barrel design that extends 2.6" from the camera. Benefitting the low-light imaging capabilities of the D3300, VR (Vibration Reduction) technology is incorporated into the lens' design to provide up to 4 stops of compensation against camera shake for cleaner, clearer imagery. Additionally, a Super Integrated Coating (SIC) has also been applied to lens elements to maintain true color fidelity and contrast by suppressing flare and ghosting.
Other Camera Features

    Nikon D3300 reviews

    D3300 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Red) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 300.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Camera! In the few weeks of owning this camera it has blown me away.. For the price, the picture quality is completely unbeatable. It shoots equal to cameras that cost thousands that I have used. Not to mention it is extremely lightweight (helpful on hikes/adventures). I can't wait to get it out and take high quality landscapes. The lens it comes with (18-55) is collapsable and is much smaller than the 18-55 that came with other nikons in the past. You can't beat 24.2 Megapixels (plus the other components are high-quality) for this price. So far I have not found any cons. The smaller and lightweight body took me a bit to get used to (coming from a Nikon D90), but it is actually nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenominal Camera Absolutely stunning image quality, great ISO performance, fast continuous shooting, gorgeous video, pretty much everything about this camera is fantastic. The kit lens is a little slow to focus, but if you can afford to invest in a 35 or 50mm f/1.8, you'll be shocked by the shots that come out of this little camera. Autofocus on non-kit lenses is near instant and highly accurate, and the viewfinder presents a large and clear picture. Autofocus in live view is pretty abysmal, but it's not really an issue for me. Battery life is excellent, I've gotten well over 800 shots out of a single charge, 600 of which were all in a short amount of time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best SLR camera for beginners I bought this camera as an upgrade from my canon s95 point and shoot. I also tried canon T5 but found Nikon to be better and more user friendly. It is very simple to use and comes loaded with the guide mode for quick reference. It is relatively compact and easily fits in the small backpack. Photo quality is extremely good even without lot of adjustments. It also comes loaded with the wifi which is extremely simple to use and useful. There are also built in photo editing options which are very useful. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend this if you are planning to upgrade to a slr camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Camera This is my first DSLR camera. I don't have much to compare it to. It is a little smaller, and less weight than others which I like. Battery usage has been exceptional. I use it mostly on weekends to take pictures of my daughters soccer games. Four weekends now, and over 1200 pictures, and I still have over half the original battery left. I mostly use the extra 50-300 lens versus the included lens. Pictures look good overall, though I find that the camera has difficulty focusing in lower light conditions. The WiFi transmitter is a hassle to use. So far, I am very happy with the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compact DSLR I use this for time lapse, back up, street shooting, video, and travel. It's small size and light weight makes it great for travel and street shooting. Small enough to pack and use 2 DSLRs when out shooting all day. It's got great image quality, and easy to use. The video is also very good. And I get well over 700 shots on 1 battery including some video shots. If I shoot time lapse in JPEG I get over 1000 shots on one battery. It would be nice if the D3300 had a time lapse mode. Nevertheless, it's a great versatile camera for the money. It can do just about anything.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first DSLR I'm an advanced amateur still photographer who was looking for a step up from compact cameras. The D3300 was recommended to me as a small DSLR with a good VF (which I like to use). When I picked one up in the store it felt just right in my small hands, which is the main reason I chose it. Buttons and menus are user-friendly, manual is quite readable. VR on the 18-55mm lens is definitely working. So far I've been having great results shooting in Program Mode. Only thing that would be better is a tilting LCD monitor.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Upgrade from D3200 I have spent a year shooting landscapes with a D3200 I got as a hand down from my wife when I bought her a D610. It was great for teaching me the basics of how a DLSR works but the images were notably soft when viewing at 100%. I wanted crisper images like she gets, but I didn't have a budget for another D610. So I took the trade in option and got this D3300 as it had many reviews saying it shoots crisper without the AA filter which is used on the D3200. The reviews I read are correct. I can see a difference. I'm a happy guy (for now...)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All-around great camera but doesn't fit in purse I love this camera. I upgraded from the D3100 and this one is so much nicer to work with. The displays for shutter speed, aperture, and ISO are easy to understand and work with. The dial for manipulating them is easy and makes sense too. It makes me feel more confident about picking it up and using it. I have also cropped eensy weensy portions of my photos and enlarged them quite a bit and they still look fantastic. I like working without using a flash, so the higher ISO ratings on this camera are making me drool just to think about them. I don't know how I ever got by with a camera that was not red. Once you've got it, it just glows (but not in the dark).
