    Cameras are nowhere near as expensive as they once were, but Nikon’s latest entry level DSLR doesn’t just prove that the prices have dropped, with an emphasis on ease of use as well as quality for the price on offer. Read more

    • Excellent image quality, Fantastic ergonomics for beginning and enthusiasts alike, Kit lens folds up like some of the smaller lenses appearing on mirrorless interchangeables, Offers Full HD video capture

    Nikon’s entry level DSLR, the Nikon D3300 is a commendable effort, but it’s a tough sell to the smartphone crowd in any case. There’s only so much you can do with a smartphone camera. Read more

    I've had several cameras even 35 mm film SLR but more recently digital format compacts. Most lenses on compacts are small aperture and not good in low light particularly when flash is long distance from subject. The Nikon has a great kit lens for a wide-angle to normal view range. Read more
