Review summary from DPReview

DPReview: Nikon D3300 overview
DPReview Silver Award April 2014
Some in-camera tools for creativity and processing are provided, but the D3300's real strength is high quality, high resolution images that will more than satisfy a beginner.

Conclusion

The Nikon D3300 is an entry-level DSLR with an impressive spec list, including a 24 megapixel sensor and 1080/60p HD video recording. It provides the right level of controls for a beginner, offers a number of in-camera retouch options, and boasts excellent battery life.

Reasons to buy

  • Sensor is one of the best in its class
  • Light, well-balanced body
  • Detailed, smooth 1080/60p HD video
  • Rear command dial makes shooting in P, A and S modes easy
  • Excellent battery life

Things to consider

  • Some useful settings buried in camera menu
  • Limited control over aperture in Live View or movie modes
  • Auto mode uses very slow shutter speeds when flash is off
  • Movie mode poorly thought-out
  • Slow auto focus in Live View mode

Suggested for

A beginner specifically looking for a DSLR experience who may want to eventually take a little control over shooting settings.

Not suggested for

Those looking for lots of easily accessible, reliable in-camera effects modes and features, Wi-Fi, fast focusing in live view, and those who want to regularly take control over more camera settings.

Style Name: w/ 18-55mmConfiguration: BaseColor: Black
The Nikon D3300 has some of the best low light and best picture quality of mid level DSLR cameras, in the APS-C sensor size (this is not a full size sensor, but to get a full size sensor you will need to spend about $2000 or $3000 more).

Nikon D3300 is rated 30% higher in image quality compared to the Canon 70D.

The Nikon D3300 has a slightly larger sensor than the Canon 70D.

I was torn between Canon and Nikon. If you look at all the complaints about Canon in the last 1 or 2 years, you will see that they have been going backwards or sideways, while other companies are making huge strides. The Canon 70D is a smooth fast auto-focusing camera that is silent, however if you set it to auto mode and go take pictures they don't look as good as the Nikon D3300 on auto mode.

Comparing pictures side by side with the Canon 70D, the Nikon D3300 has sharper pictures. Zooming in on the photos I took with the 70D yielded a loss of detail. At the same quality settings, same aperture, and shutter speed settings, and with the exact same scene, I am able to zoom in and get better photos from the Nikon D3300, the D3300 really captures crisp photos.

The D3300 may be the only camera that doesn't have image quality problems with the 24 Megapixels. There is a megapixel war going on, although sensor sizes aren't increasing, which means the image quality isn't getting better with many cameras, because they are simply trying to cram more pixels with even less light per pixel, which doesn't help matters. However, the D3300 pulls off the impossible and gets beautiful very sharp photos every time.

Style Name: w/ 18-55mmConfiguration: BaseColor: Black Verified Purchase
I purchased this camera for the purpose of having a great travel camera, and a "go to" camera when I don't feel like lugging along a lot of equipment. The image quality is superb, and it compares really well to the D5300, which was another camera I was considering. Where the D3300 really excels over the 3100 & 3200 is the ISO range. It takes beautiful shots in lower natural lighting situations, but realize that the lens has something to do with this as well. There were some complaints about the camera, but again, I believe this to be due to the limitations of the included lens (which has a limited range of aperture & depth of field). The settings on the camera can only go so far as the lens allows. It would be best to match your lens with the type(s) of photography you like to do rather than expecting the camera to work like a point and shoot. As far as the image processing and video it is on par with the D5300. It's very easy to use, and would be a perfect entry level camera for the anyone not familiar with DSLRs. There are tons of features with this camera, and some interesting modes for certain effects that are quite simply fun & easy for anyone to use. I really appreciate the self cleaning mechanism within the camera (called the dust reduction system) that's handy for me when traveling. If you'd like the ease of a point and shoot camera yet want much more professional looking and beautiful images, this is the camera for you. Realize that you may need lenses (prime, longer range zoom, or macro) to get the most from this camera, that's up to you in choosing what matches your needs. Personally, I'd purchase it again in a heartbeat, and am looking forward to using it during my travels and the holidays. I'm very pleased. Highly recommended!

Style Name: w/ 18-55mmConfiguration: BaseColor: Black
I have been a fan of Nikon's Entry level DSLR cameras including specifically the D3xxx and D5xxx series. All of these cameras have great image quality, are reasonably small and light with intuitive controls. Most of these Nikons improved with each new generation.

The Nikon D3300 is smaller and lighter than its predecessors, the D3200 and D3100. It is also considerably smaller and lighter than the D5200, the somewhat more advanced entry level Nikon DSLR. The biggest physical change in this kit is the new "VRii" 18-55mm lens. This new kit lens is smaller and lighter than its predecessor and 'collapses' into about 2/3 its size when not being used. Perhaps more significantly, this lens is sharper capturing more detail than the older kit lens.

The reduced size and weight of the D3300 appears to be Nikon's response to Canon's 100D/SL1. Although the SL1 and D3300 are about the same size and weight, the D3300 has a better/larger grip and is more comfortable (to me anyway) than the SL1.

Although the D3300 is the eventual replacement for the D3200, I purchased the D3300 in anticipation of replacing my D5200 assuming that this newer camera would have improved image quality over last year's models. I was actually somewhat disappointed as I preferred the image quality of the older D5200. That is not to say that the D3300 is not an excellent camera because actually it is.

My testing was limited to still indoor shooting (it is already dark outside when I come home from work). I compared the D3300 to the D5200 shooting identical scenes using 3 different lenses under various lighting conditions.

Both cameras delivered excellent high ISO results with similar ISO performance through ISO 3200 (I really do not like shooting past ISO 3200).
