Nikon’s D3X00 line of SLRs is one of the most popular options for novice photographers and the latest incarnation, the D3300 is a real cracker.
One of its most attractive features for those learning about photography is the Guide Mode in which the camera takes the user through the step-by-step process of selecting settings to shoot a variety of subjects.
In addition, the D3300 has a class-leading pixel-count of 24.2million and this, coupled with the EXPEED 4 processing engine and the (APS-C format) sensor’s low-pass filterless design enables it to resolve an impressively high level of detail.
Rather than being covered in numerous buttons and dials, the D3300 has quite a clean appearance and the many settings selection settings are made via the menu and Graphic User Interface on the 3-inch 921,000-dot screen.
The camera can display three circles that represent shutter speed, aperture and sensitivity to help convey the exposure settings.
The D3300 is an excellent camera and like all the others mentioned here has automatic exposure modes for the early days, as well advanced options for when you’ve grown in experience.
