The black Nikon D3300
DSLR Camera is a compact and versatile camera featuring a DX-format 24.2
megapixel CMOS sensor and EXPEED 4 image processor. The sensor and processor
combine to realize high-resolution imaging, notable low-light sensitivity to an
expandable ISO 25600, continuous shooting to 5 fps, and full HD 1080p video
recording capabilities. Additionally, the sensor design omits the traditional
optical low-pass filter in order to gain the utmost sharpness and resolution
from both photos and videos. These imaging assets are complemented by an
11-point autofocus system, which provides quick and accurate focusing
capabilities to suit working with a variety of subject types in nearly any
lighting situation. A range of shooting modes and features are also available
to help creatively accentuating your imagery, including an Easy Panorama mode
as well as Picture Control settings for in-camera adjustment of the color and
contrast qualities of your photos and movies.
For live view
monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation, a large 3.0" 921k-dot LCD
monitor is available and features a wide 160° viewing angle to better support
working from high and low angles. Also enhancing the viewing and shooting
abilities of the D3300, the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter can be used
to provide Wi-Fi connectivity for wirelessly transferring imagery and remotely
controlling the camera from a linked Android or iOS mobile device.
Included with the
D3300 camera body is the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II lens; a
standard zoom providing a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 27-82.5mm. This
lens incorporates a robust VR image stabilization system, which helps to
minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed steps to
benefit working in low-light conditions. A Super Integrated Coating reduces
flare and ghosting to optimize image clarity, contrast, and color neutrality
and a rounded seven-blade diaphragm works to create a pleasing out-of-focus
quality in shallow depth of field images.
Sensor and EXPEED 4 Processor
The 24.2 megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 4 processor work together
to produce overall high image quality with notable detail, dynamic range, color
accuracy, and low-light sensitivity to a native ISO 12800, which is further expandable
to ISO 25600. Additionally, the sensor's design omits an optical low-pass
filter in order to acquire the greatest amount sharpness and detail from
subjects. The EXPEED 4 processor also enables a wealth of speed throughout the
camera system, including support for full HD 1080p movie recording and a
full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 5 fps.
Multi-CAM 1000 Autofocus Sensor
Benefitting the high image quality is an apt AF system that employs 11 distinct
AF points to quickly acquire focus in a range of lighting conditions from -1 to
Full HD Movie Recording
Full HD 1920 x 1080p movie recording is supported in multiple frame rates up to
60 fps, as well as HD 720p and SD 480p in multiple frame rates, in the MPEG-4
AVC/H.264 format. During recording, full-time autofocus can be employed, with
face-detection and subject-tracking capabilities, for ensured sharpness with a
wide variety of subject types. A built-in monaural microphone can be used to
record high-quality sound or, alternatively, a microphone input is integrated
into the body design to support the use of an external microphone for enhanced
quality and control over audio recordings.
The D3300 integrates a large 3.0" 921k-dot vari-angle LCD monitor, which
features a 160° viewing angle to better support viewing capabilities from high
and low working angles. Alternatively, a bright pentamirror optical viewfinder
is also integrated into the design for precise eye-level viewing and real-time
monitoring of subjects.
A built-in pop-up
flash is also available for additional illumination when working in low-light
conditions and supports Nikon's i-TTL flash metering system. A hot shoe can be
used, too, for connection and optional external flash for even greater lighting
AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II Lens
Included with the camera body is the standard zoom AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm
f/3.5-5.6G VR II lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of
27-82.5mm. Designed to be as compact and lightweight as possible, this lens
features a retractable lens barrel design that extends 2.6" from the
camera. Benefitting the low-light imaging capabilities of the D3300, VR
(Vibration Reduction) technology is incorporated into the lens' design to
provide up to 4 stops of compensation against camera shake for cleaner, clearer
imagery. Additionally, a Super Integrated Coating (SIC) has also been applied
to lens elements to maintain true color fidelity and contrast by suppressing
flare and ghosting.
Other Camera Features
The optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter can be used to provide Wi-Fi
connectivity for instantly transferring imagery and remotely viewing a live
view image from a linked mobile device.
Easy Panorama Mode simplifies the creation of panoramic images by allowing you
to capture a high-resolution single image simply by panning across the scene.
A helpful Guide Mode is available to aid in becoming acquainted with the D3300
through a series of step-by-step tutorials.
Picture Control modes can be directly accessed via a dedicated button and allow
you to set predefined looks to imagery in-camera, and include Landscape,
Monochrome, Neutral, Portrait, Standard, Vivid, and user-customizable settings.
Active D-Lighting helps to preserve both highlight and shadow details when working
in contrast-rich scenarios, such as backlit lighting. Utilizing the EXPEED 4
processor's power, a more controlled image will be produced with brightness
values closer to how they are naturally seen. This mode is suitable for working
with moving subjects.
Scene Auto Selector is an automatic mode that intelligently identifies your
subject and shooting scenario, selects a proper Scene Mode to apply, and
