Product Description

Picture shows an outdoor portrait of a young girl wearing a fairy princess costume.
Outstanding picture quality from the 24.2 Megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor is complemented by incredible image detail.

Capturing all the beauty and atmosphere of important moments, the D3300 from Nikon delivers vibrant, lifelike photos and movies, day or night, with incredible ease. Packing a punch with stunning 24.2-megapixel photos and 1080p Full HD videos, the D3300 is a big power in a small package. Compact and lightweight with a built in pop-up flash, this convenient camera is available with a small retractable kit lens, making it comfortable to carry anywhere. With Nikon’s acclaimed Guide Mode to assist you, plenty of creative options, and the ability to share photos via mobile devices[1], your world will be full of unforgettable shots that are only possible with a Nikon D-SLR.

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.

Powerful Precision

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.

High-Speed Performance

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.

Effortless Shooting

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.

A montage of four images showing 1. Spools of coloured ribbon, 2. A landscape of a lake and mountains, 3. A portrait of two small boys, 4. Monochrome view of a building.
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[2].

Intuitive Operation

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.

Optional Wireless Capabilities

Achieving superior images, the feature-rich D3300 will make sure your photos stand out from the smartphone crowd on any social network. Sharing your images is simple with the help of Nikon’s optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter. By attaching the adapter to the D3300’s USB connector you can transfer images directly to any smartphone or tablet and control the camera remotely via the smart device; a great way to easily share high-quality images, preview shots on a larger screen, or experiment with full-frame self-portraits[1].

Lens Kits – The Right Choices

With outstanding Nikon technologies behind every lens kit, you can feel confident that you will take amazing, high-quality photos. The D3300 is compatible with the full range of DX-format NIKKOR lenses and is available separately or in a lens-kit with the small retractable NIKKOR 18–55mm f/3.5–5.6G VR II lens[3]. Whether you’re shooting fast action, taking a wide-angle group portrait in low light, or zooming in to capture distant subjects, Vibration Reduction (VR II) stabilisation enables up to 4 stops (16 times) faster shooting, helping ensure clear, blur-free images.

If you’re looking for a D-SLR that is powerful, feature-rich, comfortable to carry around, and incredibly simple to operate, then look no further than the Nikon D3300.

Style Name: Body OnlyColour Name: Black
The D3300 is a minor update to the D3200, it does offer most of what a new user might be looking for, or a decent choice for someone moving up from a bridge or compact camera, wanting to expand their photography knowledge
It's also easy to use and learn on.

There are a few limitations though compared to higher priced bodies, which I will go into later on. This won't matter to many users, but they are worth a mention

A quick summary of the notable strong and weaker points of the camera

+ Excellent image quality from the 24mp sensor, good dynamic range too. Nikon removed the optical low pass filter this increases the resolution a bit, you can shoot RAW and JPEG
+ 11-point AF system with central cross sensor is quite good enough at this price point
+ Nicely made and a smaller more compact size for a DSLR, quite comfy in the hand
+ Fairly well featured for an entry DSLR, has most of what you might want to start off with (bear in mind cons section)
+ Has HD video 1920 x 1080 50p which is sharp and clean. You do have autofocus (contrast) with the AF-F mode
+ 3.

I'm new to DSLR's and have wanted to give one a try for many years. I read through most of the reviews on the net and decided upon this based on it being a very impressive entry level camera. I have no desires to want to produce shots worthy or publishing, but just as a hobby. So I'm in no position to go in to the technicalities as yet, but this to be a great camera. Only disappointment was that Nikon don't include a memory card with the camera - at such a small cost to them, this would have allowed me to be up and running sooner than having to order one separately. Apart from that, a great camera that I'm looking forward to using and understanding !!

Having originally gone for a Canon 1000D four years ago, I grew increasingly frustrated with the very poor image quality, so I've sold all my Canon kit and have switched to Nikon's D3300. I am a beginner photographer/astro-photographer.

This is an entry level or upper entry level camera which outcompetes Canon's alternatives in the form of the 1200D and 100D. Although slightly bigger than the 100D which was marketed as the world's smallest DSLR, you wouldn't really think so if the cameras were put side by side. In terms of image quality, you get 24mp versus 18mp resolution in those two other models, but on top of this the sensor gives you 35% more image quality, 11% more colour depth, over DOUBLE the low light ISO sensitivity (half your exposure time), and 14% more dynamic range (an image shows a greater range of light levels rather than everything either dark or light). Check Dxomark scores, which are lab tests done on cameras in a controlled environment using high tech software and sensors if you want to verify these numbers.

The body feels solid yet light, grips in the hand very nicely and has intuitively placed buttons. The buttons have a nice clicky feel to them, and I particularly like the column of buttons on the left side of the screen. It has some nice features, the most notable of which is that you can apply many fun filters to your images on the camera. One of these is a 'miniature effect', where the top and bottom bands of the image are blurred as per your input to give a cool artistic effect, and in movie mode at 1080P HD resolution it compresses time by 15x so that a 45 minute movie turns into a 3m movie - making everything appear miniaturised and fast. On the auto modes any beginners will be able to use this camera, and the auto focus is top notch.

Style Name: 18-55mm VR II Lens KitColour Name: Red
I own a Nikon D5100 and my first impression of the D3300 was how compact and light the 3300 is in comparison! Nikon have really tried to reduce the bulk of this DSLR to make it more like a portable snapper that the beginner would likely be more used to. It is for a beginner, as is the entry level spec camera in their DSLR range. However, it is likely that I will never afford myself the luxury of spending the money that an enthusiast level camera provides so for me.. you've got to be here because of budget as all DSLRS are complicated compared to point and shoot compacts.

These are the things that i consider when looking for a good DSLR to start with.. I don't have a huge amount to spend, never have... so I have bought entry level and been there before; these are the things (just a couple of things) I found most important if your budget is tight and you need 'bang for buck!' I say:

1. Let the main thing be the main thing- Picture quality. Why buy a DSLR if you are not looking for improved image quality? The image quality for the 3300 is quite simply outstanding for the price- buy with confidence. Snapsort- which has been my 'go to' comparison site rates the image quality very highly; it has great colour range and a high resolution of pixels> 82/100

"With its huge 24 megapixel sensor, the entry-level D3300 continues to be one of the highest-resolution APS-C DX format Nikon DSLRs , and it still offers more pixels than any competing manufacturer too. The removal of the Optical Low Pass Filter has resulted in very slightly improved rendition of fine details without introducing unwanted moire effects, while the extended ISO range makes the camera a little more adaptable in low-light." -photographyblog.
