Nikon D3300 18-55MM VR, 70-300MM VR Unboxing & Full Review

It’s odd to think how quickly camera technology can pass from the realm of the pro to the amateur, from cutting-edge to passé. Once upon a time we were all astounded by the 24.5MP resolution of the Nikon D3X, a camera designed for professional photographers who were willing to spend £4200 on their gear. Four years later and some people might reasonably be disappointed that the entry-level £500 Nikon D3300 'only' carries the same 24.2MP resolution as its direct predecessor the D3200. How things change.

Despite the identical resolutions of the Nikon D3300 and D3200, there is one very important difference that impacts image quality. For the D3300, Nikon has removed the optical anti-aliasing filter. This is a filter installed in digital cameras to reduce occurrences of optical aberrations such as moiré patterning – unwanted artifacts appearing on images that feature repetitive detail patterns. While anti-aliasing filters reduce this effect, the cost is a loss in sharpness. Recently it has become a trendy move for camera manufacturers to remove the filters entirely in favour of optimal sharpness, relying on big megapixel counts to cope with any moiré-causing patterns.

The resolution may be the same as the D3200, but the D3300 has plenty of other improvements under the bonnet. Chief among these is the new Expeed 4 image-processing engine. Nikon’s fastest processor yet, it improves the D3300’s ISO sensitivity to an impressive maximum of 25,600 and its shooting rate to 5fps – not top of the league but very impressive for an entry-level camera. There are also a few new automatic flash modes, including an option for fill flash.

It’s worth noting that there is plenty that remains the same from the previous model in the series. You’ve got an 11-point AF system, a 3-inch 921k-dot rear screen and a 420 pixel RGB sensor metering system, all things that D3200 users will find thoroughly familiar. The D3300 shoots images in JPEG and 12-bit Raw formats, and is capable of saving them to SD, SDHC or SDXC memory cards.

To pair with the D3300, Nikon unveiled a new retractable kit lens, the F-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II lens, an impressively sharp number with a minimum focus distance of 25cm (when manually focusing; 28cm with AF). As the camera lacks a built-in AF motor it requires AF-S lenses in order to be able to autofocus.


The D3300’s controls reflect its position as an entry-level DSLR. The emphasis is on simplicity, with a minimum of dials and buttons. As we’ve seen before on many a Nikon camera, menu and playback buttons are to the left of the LCD screen and menu-navigating controls are on the right. It’s all as quick and intuitive as it has been on previous models: no complaints here.

There are a few direct-access buttons for settings but not very many. The top plate houses an exposure compensation control, situated next to the shutter release, and a button on the front can be customised to control a preferred function (it defaults to ISO sensitivity). There’s also a button to control flash settings. All other image settings are accessed through the menus on the rear display.


Most of the D3000 series has used Nikon’s Multi-CAM 1000 11-point autofocus system, and the D3300 sees no reason to rock that boat. You could argue that 11 AF point is a little stingy these days, and you’d be right, but in truth we had few complaints about the D3300’s AF. It worked very well in bright light and while its speed wasn’t blinding it was fast enough for us.

In low light, however, it did start to struggle a little. The focal points generally fell on the part of the scene we wanted them to. It was only when we were shooting landscapes and wanted focal points on the edge of the frame that we felt we had to take over and manually focus. This, unfortunately, was a little disappointing. The new kit lens isn’t much for manual focusing; the ring is small and fiddly to use. If you’re a photographer who prefers to manually focus, you’d be better off with a different lens.


A straightforward but powerful camera, the Nikon D3300 strikes an excellent balance between the entry-level needs of quality and simplicity. It’s not without its issues, most notably that it struggles to keep images clean at high sensitivities. However, the price is hard to knock, and the D3300 really does do a lot of things right. A very worthy first DSLR.
