Nikon D3300 Review

Nikon D3300 Overview

Made from a single piece of material, the D3300 is smaller, stronger and about an ounce lighter than its predecessor D3200. The D3300 stands as a 4.9 x3.9 x3 dimension with an APS-C 24.2 megapixel sensor. The Nikon D3300 works well with the Nikon AF-S/AF-I teleconverters and/or lenses and has a single memory slot that is compatible with SDXC/SDHC/SD memory cards.

The entry level DSLR camera has a 3-inch LCD fixed monitor displaying a simply and straight forward menu guide that can be understood by a beginner to photography.  The battery life gives out 700 shots and can survive a day’s worth of shooting and reviewing.

The Nikon D3300 is a charm for videographers with its ability to capture 1,920 X 1,080 footage up to 60fps and a quick playback using HDMI connection.

The Nikon D3300 is an extremely responsive camera with a quick start up and shooting time when the lens is in the expanded state. Playback mode can be in the form of a slideshow for individuals with patience. This slideshow however can be disabled using the playback menu.

The camera boosts a constant fast shooting rate of up to 5fps outlines for each second which delivered 13 or 14 JPEG fine pictures. It takes only a few seconds when shooting for the images to be written to the memory card and under 10 seconds when images are being written.

The shutter speed, sensitivity and aperture settings are displayed on the LCD screen when the user is shooting; and can be altered with use of the scroll dials.

The Nikon D3300 autofocus comes in rather handy when using viewfinder for shooting.

To form a panoramic view, the Live View Mode acts a guide when enabled; displaying a framed grid over the view of the image and prompting the user to move across the scene guided by arrows. With its auto detect feature, the Nikon D3300 will start its recording once it detects the pan movement and will stop automatically, combining the frames together to form the ideal JPEG image.
