I Love This Camera!,
This review is from: Nikon D3300 24.2 MP CMOS Digital SLR with Auto Focus-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II Zoom Lens (Black) (Electronics)
Here is a good (but slightly expensive) digital SLR camera with one of the highest mega-pixel available today (February) in the market for the semi-professional hobbyist. By semi-professional hobbyist I mean those for whom photography is not their means of income, but who share their pictures in professional fora as a hobby.
*** The WU-1a wireless mobile adapter gives you control of the camera shutter from a smartphone or a tablet, and lets you share your photos to friends and family via your mobile device
*** To match the camera's extreme portability, the ISO range has been extended (100 -12800), so whether shooting at home or trekking through a mountain, you will always capture exceptional images with superb noise-suppression
*** 7.5 centimeters (3-inch), approx. 921k-dot (VGA) TFT LCD
*** 5 frames per second (fps) shooting speed
Other import plus points for me are:
*** Reduced weight compared to its predessesors D3100 and D3200
*** A smaller lens with lesser weight, but with increased clarity
The pictures, as is expected from Nikon DSLRs, are exceptional clear.
If clarity is your concern, here is the camera for you. However, if zoom/magnification is your primary concern, you will have to buy additional zoom lenses because the standard lens (18-55mm) gives you a maximum of 4x equivalent optical zoom. Zoom lenses can be expensive and you should be ready to spend at least half of what you pay for the camera for your first zoom lens, with progressively more for longer focal lengths (= greater zoom values).
Overall this is a good, though a bit expensive, machine from the the D series of Nikon DSLRs
