Very impressed with image quality
The image quality is superb. As a longtime 35-mm film camera photographer, I have been used to setting everything manually. I am having fun exploring the options in my D3300, usually with the aperture-priority setting.
The 24.2 Mp processor yields impressive images, and that is my main concern.
The D3300 might be reasonably inexpensive, but there is nothing cheap about the image quality.
The accompanying sample photos included both the uncropped and two cropped images. Shot with Nikon D3300 and 35-mm f/1.8 Nikkor prime lens set at f/5.6. No processing was used other than cropping. Additional information: ISO 200, aperture priority f 5.6, shutter speed 1/320. NEF RAW file. First crop made in Nikon Capture NX-D and saved as jpeg. A second, tighter crop was made from the first jpeg cropped image using Kodak Easyshare software, because I couldn't get the crop as tight as I wanted in NX-D, but with still very usable results.
By the way, I could have used my 300-mm Nikkor zoom when shooting, but I was experimenting with the 35-mm Nikkor prime lens. Love Nikon. And love pushing the envelope.

I just got this camera, after hours and hours of research. I knew I wanted a Nikon, so I went with the one I thought was best for my money. You can't go wrong with this camera kit, with the 55-200mms included in this particular package. As for simplicity and performance....outstanding. I would recommend this kit to anyone wanting an affordable kit to begin your photographic journeys.
