HOW MUCH SMA
In fact the D3100 remains on sale too, so Nikon novices now have three cameras to choose from. The D3100 is the oldest, with specifications that are now starting to look rather dated, but at current prices the D3200 still looks very competitive.
We’ll bring you a full test of the D3300 and its new retractable lens next issue – alongside a mega group test on all the other DX-format D-SLRs currently in Nikon’s range. Like the D5300 and D7100 before it, the D3300 ditches the anti-alias filter in front of the sensor to deliver sharper fine detail.
The D3300 adds an Effects setting to the mode dial, previously seen only on the D5000series models
A new monocoque design makes the D3300 body 45g lighter than the D3200 one
Wi-Fi is not built in (unlike the new D5300), but you can use the WU-1a adaptor
Nikon’s new EN-EL14a cell gives a battery life of 700 shots – 160 more than the D3200.
