Nikon D3300 Price in US

At the Consumer Electronics Show in 2014, one of the most significant camera announcements may have been the little Nikon D3300 and its detachable 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 VR II lens. It may not be able to record 4K video or have a curved LCD (those shows are all about the latest technological trends), but it does represent the next generation of Nikon’s extremely successful entry-level DSLR series, which is remarkable in and of itself.

The D3300 is Nikon’s most beginner-friendly DSLR and is located at the very bottom of the company’s entry-level range, just below the D5300. It is the friendliest of the beginner-friendly DSLRs. However, don’t be misled by their refined demeanor since both cameras make use of a strong 24MP APS-C sensor. If you choose the D3300 over the D5300, you will have to make do with a fixed 3.0-inch LCD rather than one that is completely articulating, as well as no Wi-Fi that is built in.

The D3300’s Expeed 4 branded CPU is largely responsible for many of the improvements that it offers over its predecessor, the D3200. This model now records video in 1080p at 60 frames per second, has an additional frame per second in burst mode, and a greater ISO range that goes up to 12800. (25600 with expansion).

Pros
  • APS-C sensor with 24 million pixels is one of the finest in its category.
  • Light, well-balanced body
  • HD footage that is smooth and detailed, 1080 pixels wide at 60 frames per second.
  • A function button that may be programmed to your specifications gives you immediate access to ISO or white balance.
  • The rear command dial makes switching between the P, A, and S shooting modes simple.
  • Raw files provide a large margin for error correction, including modifications to the tone curve.
  • Outstanding battery life, with the CIPA rating of 700 shots.
Cons
  • It is not possible to make rapid adjustments to the settings using the rear command dial while in the info menu.
  • You'll have to go through the camera menu to find helpful options like the on/off switch for the auto ISO and the active D-lighting option.
  • Live view prevents you from changing the aperture while it's active.
  • Even when the flash is disabled, the auto mode keeps making use of very slow shutter rates.
  • Movie mode is ill-conceived and inadequately integrated.
  • Auto focus that is sluggish in live view
  • Some blunders were made using the panoramic function on the camera.
