A welcome addition to Nikon’s range?
Nikon shows no sign of losing its grip on the entry level market. The D3300 satisfies those that crave the megapixels without skimping on image quality. Despite our initial concerns about removing an anti-aliasing filter from a camera aimed at novices, we’ve been unable to find any moiré patterning in stills shooting, so overall it seems like a good choice, leading to fine detailed images. The fact that you can crop and still retain a decent image size is a bonus for those who don’t have the readies to fork out for extra optics.
Updating the user interface was a smart move. The Guide Mode continues to be something which makes this camera appealing to novices as well.
It’s a shame that the D3300 doesn’t have builtin Wi-Fi. There’s also no touch- or articulating screen, which does make some of the entry-level compact system cameras which do offer this functionality all the more appealing.
Nonetheless, this is an excellent buy for those who want to purchase their first D-SLR.

The D3300 captures plenty of fine detail, and delivers well-saturated colours. The downside? Images are a little noisier than from some other
