New Nikon D3300 Announcement

Nikon has recently announced their latest entry level DSLR the Nikon D3300 which is an upgrade in the D3000 series to the Nikon D3200 which I use primarily for my photography and video. As a result anyone wanting to pick up the Nikon D3200 can expect to do so at a reduced price.

The EXPEED 4 Processor means that we can hope for improved image quality and light sensitivity much like the improvement between the Nikon D5200 to the Nikon D5300 which also uses the EXPEED 4 Processor.

The Nikon D3300 will also be coming with a new kit lens the Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II which will of course feature Nikon’s Vibration Reduction option on the lens.

The Nikon D3300 will cost $649.99 (Body Only) and will have a release date of Feb 6, 2014

Based on the information provided so far, aside from better overall image quality and a higher overall ISO range we can expect this model to be fairly consistent with the Nikon D3200, as the mexapixel count is the same, as are most of its other features. Unlike the D5300 it is unlikely that this model will have Wifi and GPS as it is the lower end entry level DSLR.
