The Sleek and Compact Nikon D3300
Nikon's D3300 with its collapsible F3.5-5.6 18-55mm VR II lens is one of Nikon's popular next generation DSLR line. Although the D3300 sits just below Nikon D5300 in performance, it beats most Canon DSLR Cameras and it is Nikon's friendliest of the beginner-friendly DSLRs. The D3300's powerful EXPEED 4 processor is what gives it its many gains over its predecessor, the D3200. It has an awe-inspiring 24MP APS-C sensor, an upgraded 1080/60p video recording capacity, lighter and compact platform, and a superior ISO range up of to 12800.

Build and Design If you read any D3300 review, you'll notice that it looks virtually similar to the D3200 except for some slight contour differences and some relocated buttons on the rear. Its rounded rectangular design as well as its body that is made of composite materials (including carbon fibre) gives it a form with a sure, comfortable handgrip. The camera body also houses Nikon's signature buttons and dial as well as a 3 inch monitor.
Menus and Modes The D3300 has simple and short menus like other entry-level DSLR cameras such as Olympus Cameras: playback menu, shooting menu, setup menu, retouch menu (which offers image manipulation tools), and recent settings menu. Its shooting modes combine fully automatic "easy" mode together with the more traditional manual and semi-automatic mode.
Extras The Nikon D3300 is fully compatible with all Nikon AF-S and AF-I lenses as well as teleconverters. It also can use SD, SDXC, and SDHC memory cards in its single card slot. The D3300 is available in black, gray, and red bodies in kit form and it comes with the more compact NIKKOR AF-S DX 18-55mm VR II zoom lens. It also comes with a rechargeable battery and charger, rubber eyecup, A/V cable, camera strap, body cap, and View NX2 software. The D3300 is undeniably better in terms of its battery capacity.
