The D3300 at a glance
Shutter button area
The front of the top panel in the shutter button area isn’t as dramatically sloped as it is on the D3200.
As in the D3200, D5200 and D5300, an infrared receiver for an ML-L3 remote controller is integrated into the finger grip.
The new Mk II edition of the 18-55mm VR lens was launched with the D3300. It’s now available as a kit lens with the D3200, D5200 and D5300.
Shooting mode dial
As with all other cameras in the group apart from the D3200, an Effects position is available on the shooting mode dial.
Secondary IR receiver
As usual, a secondary infrared receiver on the top rear of the body enables the ML-L3 controller to be used from behind the camera.
The speaker for optional beeps is on the opposite side to the one on the D3200, positioned next to the shooting mode dial.
Like the penta-mirror viewfinders of the D3200, D5200 and D5300, this one gives 95 per cent frame coverage, but has a slightly higher magnification of 0.85x.
The LCD has the same physical dimensions and resolution as that of the D3200, at three inches and 921,000 pixels.
Bottom right buttons
The drive mode and delete buttons are placed next to each other rather than having the vertical stacking arrangement seen on the D3200.
