Nikon just announced the D3300 which will be replacing the D3200. As you know I tend to be a little to critical when it comes to entry level gear but this time I took a step back.

It is very important that I look at this gear as exactly what it's for and who it's for. It is a very basic entry level camera for someone someone who has an interest in photography and is picking up their first camera.

Let's take a look at the important specs in this camera.

First it has a 24.2 megapixel sensor with no OLPF. I can not confirm if this is the same sensor that is currently in the Nikon D7100 but if it is it's going to be fantastic. OLPF stands for Optical Low Pass Filter. Without having the OLPF you can expect to get sharper more vibrant images.

This camera now sports an Expeed 4 processor which will help with processing images quicker and giving you better quality low light shooting. If you would like to read more on the processor please see the press release below.

The ISO range is huge going from 100-12,800 expandable to 25,600 though no one should really ever shoot that high. No one can ever say they don't have enough ISO to capture the image anymore. Having the ability to crank the ISO to 4000 or higher and still come away with great results used to be only possibly in the most expensive of full frame cameras. Now in an entry level camera you have the power to capture images in so many more lighting situations.

I also want to take a step back and let anyone know who is new to DSLR photography that your lens aka glass is so important. Better glass will allow more light into the camera which allows you to drop your ISO thus saving on quality. Sure the kit lenses can do the job but the higher you push your ISO the more issues you will see with your image.

There are now 11 focusing points which should certainly help you get tack sharp images for stills.

The camera will shoot at 5 frames per second allowing you to capture quick bursts of action. I am not sure how many continuous RAW files you may be able to capture but having this option is a plus.

Moving on to the video features I forgot to mention in the video that there is a microphone input which allows you to use external microphones like the ones offered by RODE.

But the main video feature that this camera added is that it will shoot video at 60 frames a second at 1080. This means you have the ability to capture more frames during video allowing you to showcase slow motion images.

There is one thing Nikon mentioned that I found interesting. They mention in the press release that this camera has an optical viewfinder which may seem like common knowledge to people in the know. But to a beginner just getting into the game they may never have thought to do anything other than use live view.

The D3300 will come as a kit with the just announced Nikon 18-55VR II lens for $649.95. This new kit lens is smaller and lighter than before and let's hope sharper. Let me emphasize that a kit lens is not a bad place to start. You will be able to capture general types of images with fairly good results. Just remember as you grow as a photographer lenses become more and more important.
