The Nikon D300 DSLR offers outstanding image quality, multi-functional technologies and fast response, with an impressive resolution of 12.3 megapixels, speedy 6 fps frame advance, self-cleaning sensor unit and high definition 3" VGA LCD display, combined with Nikon's legendary durability. The Camera also features Nikon's exclusive EXPEED Image Processing System that is central to driving the speed and processing power needed for many of the camera's features; such as the 51-point auto focus system with Nikon's 3D Focus Tracking feature, and two live view shooting modes that allow users to frame a photograph using the camera's high-resolution 920k-dot LCD monitor.

Durable and Dependable

The D300 body is built from a durable and lightweight magnesium alloy, and has been designed for a high level of dust and water resistance, while the camera's shutter has been tested for 150,000-release cycles, thereby continuing Nikon's long tradition of sturdiness and durability

12.3 Megapixel Resolution

The high-resolution 12.3 Megapixel DX format CMOS sensor generates image files of the highest quality that are suitable for almost every type of output.

Self Cleaning Sensor

The D300 incorporates a self-cleaning sensor unit, which vibrates at four different resonance frequencies to remove any loose dust on the surface of the sensor's optical low pass filter.

Fast Performance

The D300 can support continuous shooting up to 6 frames per second (up to 8 frames per second with the optional combination of MB-D10 Multi-power Battery Pack, EN-EL4a battery & BL-3 Battery Chamber Cover), making it a powerful performer for a wide variety of shooting disciplines, particularly for action sports, wildlife, or news gathering applications. It also provides fast power-up (0.13 seconds), quick responsiveness (45 millisecond shutter lag), and outstanding timer and shutter flexibility to meet the needs of a wide variety of photographic assignments.

Enhanced Images with EXPEED

The EXPEED image processing system is at the heart of the D300's ability to capture and process high definition image data so quickly. It features 14-bit analog-to-digital (A/D) conversion with 16-bit image processing, both of which contribute to delivering results with Nikon's signature 'look and feel' of rich accurate colors, smooth skin gradations and exceptional detail.

Wide ISO Sensitivity

The camera has a broad ISO range from 200-3200 plus Lo (equivalent to ISO 100) and Hi (equivalent to ISO 6400) sensitivity settings.

Fast, Accurate 51-point Autofocus with 3D Focus Tracking

The D300 incorporates Nikon's Multi-CAM 3500DX auto focus module that features an intelligent array of 15 cross-type sensors and 36 horizontal sensors. The system also features 3D tracking with automatic focus point switching that takes advantage of all 51 AF points as it uses color and light information to accurately track the subject. Altogether, the D300 delivers exacting autofocus precision at blazing speeds.

Exclusive Scene Recognition System (SRS)

The Nikon Scene Recognition System uses the acclaimed Nikon 1005-pixel RGB color sensor modified to recognize subjects' shape and position before the image is captured. This also aids the 51-Point Autofocus system in tracking subjects by their color, while enhancing the accuracy of exposure and white balance metering.

Active D-Lighting Mode

The Active D-Lighting mode provides remarkable real-time highlight and shadow correction with optimized image contrast, producing broader tone reproduction in both shadows and highlights while applying localized tone control technology to achieve a more pleasing level of contrast across the entire image. And because Active D-Lighting is applied as images are captured, image editing time can be reduced.

Picture Control Settings

Nikon's Picture Control System makes it easy for users of all experience levels to select and apply adjustments to how their pictures are rendered and create optimized settings to suit their individual preferences. The Picture Control System offers four basic setting options - Standard, Neutral, Vivid and Monochrome - that can be directly customized with image parameters, such as sharpening, tone compensation, brightness and saturation. Furthermore, users can store up to nine customized options or export up to 99 to a CF memory card, enabling photographers to share settings among multiple cameras.

3.0" Color LCD Display

The 3.0-inch super density (920,000-pixel) color LCD monitor provides a crisp clear view of your images with 170-degree wide-angle viewing and tempered-glass protection - making critical image review possible. The camera also includes an information display on the rear LCD screen that can change color according to the ambient lighting conditions, and an easy-to-view top LCD panel.

Live View Feature

The D300 includes the Live View system, which presents photographers with a live image on the LCD screen, with two modes suited to either hand held or tripod shooting. The Live View system is particularly useful when shooting in a studio, utilizing remote shooting, or when shooting from challenging angles.

Comfortable Controls

The controls of the D300 were designed for ease of use with a totally intuitive 8-directional multi-area selector that makes selecting any of the 51-Point autofocus settings simple, and an intuitive menu system that provides fast access to many of the fine controls of the camera.

A Total Imaging System

The D300 isn't just a camera, but part of the Nikon Total Imaging System, and is compatible with NIKKOR lenses, Speedlights, accessories and software that provide a complete solution for any photographic challenge to help photographers create great images.

Wireless Networking

The optional Nikon Wireless Transmitter WT-4, not only provides the ability to transmit ('push') images to servers and remotely control the camera from afar, but also enables remote browsing of the camera's image thumbnails as well. Furthermore users can set up a network of up to five D300 so thumbnails from all connected cameras can be browsed simultaneously from a remote server and relevant image files 'pulled', while the photographers continue shooting.
