Nikon D3300 Camera


The market for budget SLR cameras is experiencing serious stagnation, and the fact is that, as experts predicted, budget SLR cameras began to supplant compacts. Their advantages are small size, wide functionality, and what is most interesting every year is the best shooting quality, which is already very close to the quality of entry-level DSLRs. And if earlier a novice photographer was forced to buy an initial SLR camera, then today there is an alternative choice. Nikon has decided to revive this market for itself and other manufacturers with the Nikon D3300.

Design and functionality


The SLR camera comes in a standard cardboard box made of thick cardboard. It has a standard yellow-black color, which has already become a trademark of the packaging of the Japanese manufacturer.

In the box, in addition to the Nikon D3300, you can find a charger, an EN-EL14a battery that comes with a protective cover, a rubber eye cup, a lens protective cover, a shoulder strap, an audio-video cable, and, of course, a drive with additional ViewNX 2 software .


Although the Nikon D3300 does not have magnesium alloys in the case, the plastic used is of very good quality, there are no complaints about the build quality. The good news is that the weight of the camera has decreased to 410 grams. Pleasantly pleased with the new design with an updated rubberized handle. Everything is adjusted in such a way that now you can calmly and comfortably hold the camera with even two fingers.

On the front side of the camera is the lens mount, microphone (mono), and autofocus backlight. On the back there is a screen above which the optical viewfinder is located. The remaining functional elements are located on the left and right side of the screen.

On the top of the camera is a flash, a hot shoe connector, a mode dial, video buttons, a display off, exposure compensation, shutter release combined with an on / off lever. cameras. There is also a system speaker. On the bottom there is a connector for mounting a tripod, and a compartment for installing the battery.

On the left under two rubber plugs are hidden functional connectors: HDMI, USB / AV, microphone, remote control. There is also a flash key and Fn, which is responsible for sensitivity. On the right side is a slot for a memory card, which is covered by a spring-loaded door.

The updated hardware of the camera allows improving the quality of shooting in relation to its predecessor.

Automatic mode correctly adjusts the settings to get great photos. The camera is ready for 0.53 seconds. Burst shooting was increased to 5 frames per second, which is an indicator of the already more advanced Nikon D5300 camera. Auto focus, despite a more powerful processor and an improved whale lens, is still not as fast as we would like. Here, the novelty even for some reason became slower than the D3200 by 0.1 seconds, which resulted in focusing in 0.55 seconds from a distance of one meter. In manual mode, 11 focus points can be selected.

I would also like to say about the improvement of the video shooting mode. Now the camera is capable of shooting video in Full HD 50p / 60p format.

A battery with a capacity of 8.9 Wh * will allow you to capture 700 frames on a single charge according to the CIPA method. Under ordinary field conditions, it will be possible to complete up to 1665 frames on a single charge, although the manufacturer promises a total of 2500 frames.


The Japanese manufacturer turned out to be an excellent entry-level DSLR in the person of Nikon D3300. She is the logical continuation of this series of cameras. It was pleasantly surprised that its dimensions became a little, but still smaller, and the camera also lost weight well. In her hand she lies much more comfortable than her predecessor, and all thanks to improved ergonomics due to a modified appearance. The installation of a more powerful and high-speed Expeed 4 processor had a positive effect on the work, and the increased battery volume completely advanced the camera to the market leaders. I would also like to say about video shooting, because the camera is capable of shooting video in Full HD-resolution with a frequency of 50-60 frames per second.

If we talk about the shortcomings, then I would rather say that the camera has its own characteristics, because the modified viewfinder began to work better than before, although it still loses to that of the Pentax K-500. Although the new processor accelerated the work of the camera, the auto focus still works rather slowly, and the camera itself is not very quick, though serial shooting has improved to 5 frames per second.
