Update: For those looking to capture action photography when the subject is not near the camera (e.g., throwing a toy as a dog is running away from you, wildlife and bids), I highly suggest looking into the following lens:

I LOVE this camera. Its been on numerous trips with me, such as North Carolina, Washington DC, the Adirondacks, Cape Cod, Baltimore, and so many more. The quality is SUPER nice, and the audio from videos is VERY crisp. This was my first DSLR, and I would recommend this to anybody whos looking for a nice simple DSLR with auto and manual settings. Ive had this caera for almost a year now as well and its highly durable! Its been in boats, cars, tree tops, boxes, waterproof bags, you name it. I love my little D3300 and I hope you will too!! 100 outta 5 stars! (if you like my photos follow me on instagram @emmie.phorourke)

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).

Fantastic camera from Nikon that takes exceptional photos

I have been using a super-zoom point and shoot for the last few years , and once my camera basically died on me, decided to upgrade to a DSLR. I am no professional myself, just a casual shooter. The D3300 lives up to it’s reputation as one of , if not the best entry level DSLRs. The image quality straight from the camera in both RAW and JPEG formats is very pleasing. I would suggest using the viewfinder for more accurate shots as the delay when looking at the screen may yield a slightly different shot due to the ever so slight delay.

I love it so far; haven’t tried the panoramic function but will soon. I’m not interested in the “wireless” part of it, but love the higher resolution (double of my old D3100), higher multiple shot speed (5 per sec vs. 3 per sec.) and overall function and display info.

Got it as a birthday gift for my mom. She absolutely Loved it!! It’s a great DSLR camera for entry to advanced level people. There is a beginner mode and a advanced mode to help with the learning curve. The one gripe I had with it is, the plain package option doesn’t come with a memory card. Also don’t forget to click on the free accessories option. I couldn’t because it was out of stock at the time.

Great investment
