The ver­dict

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

cam­eras in the Nikon range
