Whether you are at the start of your photographic journey or just want to get more from your camera and still keep things simple, the Nikon D3300 is the one for you.
At the heart of the D3300 is a 24.2 megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor that has been designed without an optical low-pass filter (OLPF) to capture maximum image detail. Achieving exquisitely rich colours and smooth, natural skin tones, fine detail like hair or feathers are captured perfectly, especially when paired with a NIKKOR lens. Such high-quality, high resolution images also ensure that every detail is crisp and clear, even if you crop or enlarge a portion of the photo.
An ISO of up to 12800 provided by the Expeed 4 image processing engine delivers brilliant results even in low light.
There are plenty of options for capturing fast-moving action with both Continuous shooting at up to 5fps and D-Movie full HD video capability.
Working to an exceptional standard in all light conditions, High ISO capability (100-12800 and extendable up to 25600) delivers brilliant shots and sharp images of fast moving subjects even in poorly lit environments. Equipped with Nikon’s new EXPEED 4 image-processing engine, this unique system runs through countless operations at lightning-fast speeds to produce remarkably clear movie recordings and images with minimised noise and superb tonal gradation. With continuous shooting available at up to 5fps, fleeting movements or expressions can be caught at just the right moment.
Make Every Shot a Masterpiece
With the desire to inspire more photographers and help users to get the most out of feature-rich cameras like the D3300, Nikon’s Guide Mode offers clear step-by-step explanations and example images. Easily accessible through the mode dial found on top of the camera body, Guide Mode teaches you to set-up the camera, and shoot, view, delete or retouch images, as well as how to take portraits with beautiful background blur, freeze the action, or obtain clear shots in low light. Building confidence in budding photographers, Guide Mode makes it easy for anyone to learn how to master key features and controls, without ever needing to open the camera manual.
A variety of practical and innovative in-camera tools help to make the most of every shooting opportunity and ensure your pictures are captured to perfection. Some shots are so easy to miss but with the high-speed superior accuracy of the 11-point AF system the D3300 delivers razor sharp images by maintaining focus on even the smallest subjects, however unpredictable their movements may be. When facing extremely high-contrast lighting beyond the camera’s dynamic range, Nikon’s exclusive Active D-Lighting helps you maintain details in the highlights without losing them in the shadows. Composing beautiful images is made so much easier with Scene Auto Selector which automatically selects a scene mode suited to the shooting situation and subject. For added convenience, an icon of the selected scene mode, such as Landscape or Night Portrait, appears in the top-left corner of the LCD monitor.
Fine-tuning of parameters like sharpness, saturation and hue is aided by Nikon's Picture Control System. Vivid, Landscape, Portrait and Monochrome options are illustrated here.
The Subject-Tracking AF system will keep your subject in focus no matter how quickly or erratically it's moving, and Face-Priority AF is available when shooting portraits.
Boost Your Creativity
The camera’s Special Effects mode makes it easy to add a touch of artistry. Have fun shooting distinctive photos and movies by choosing options such as Pop, which brightens colours by increasing the saturation; Toy Camera, which creates a retro effect; or Easy Panorama, which creates spectacular panoramas of vast landscapes or city skylines. The 13 different effects are incredibly simple to apply and can even be previewed in real time on the large LCD screen while shooting.
Movie Action in HD
For those who want to take their creative vision to video, Nikon’s D-Movie function gives you great compositional freedom. Recording in Full HD (1080p) at frame rates up to 50/60p, this versatile camera offers superior performance. A wide range of movie applications and convenient custom controls, including Live View operation with subject-tracking AF or face-priority AF, ensure large format movie shooting at its best, even when the action speeds up. With the Nikon D3300 movies can sound as good as they look too. Thanks to the camera’s built-in microphone and compatibility with Nikon’s external ME-1 Stereo Microphone, it’s easy to capture footage with crisp, clear sound. When it comes to sharing your latest creation, the HDMI output lets you connect the camera directly to an HDTV to enjoy your movies and photos in superb high-definition.
Built for photographers on the go, the D3300 is a D-SLR which can be as easy to shoot with as a compact camera or smartphone. Nikon’s superior ergonomics, clear menus, and one-touch buttons for frequently used functions, make operation quick and intuitively simple. In Live View, the large 7.5 cm (3 inch), 921K-dot resolution, LCD monitor displays incredibly clear images, while the wide optical viewfinder, offering approximately 95% frame coverage and 0.85x magnification, makes it easy to capture perfectly timed photographs, especially when shooting fast action from a distance. With a body weighing just 410g and a large comfortable grip to ensure a steady hold for both Live View and viewfinder shooting, you’ll be sure to take brilliant images with ease.
A range of Special Effects add a touch of artistry with thirteen different effects to choose from. The Pop and Super Vivid effects are shown here.
