Perfect camera for all occasions
At 70 years of age I'm not new to photography but raising six children over a long span of time did not leave much cash for perusing photography as a hobby. It was do what you can with what you have as needed. My father had given me an Agfa Speedex camera that very basic but a good camera. The cost of film/processing and printing was a real limiting factor. Since the camera was old and the lens was separating the layers it was replaced by point and shoot film cameras. The pictures made nice memories but not the type of photos that I longed for creating.
Now I have entered the DSLR age and what a difference. The photos I take are what I always longed to take. Colors are alive and brilliant. The D3300 is easy to use and with the options available to use, good results are guaranteed. In the M mode I can use the old lessons learned and the digital format makes experimenting and learning fun and affordable.
I have used this camera for a week and am so pleased with its performance. There is nothing I would change. I have the 18-55mm and the 55-200mm lens. They are a nice combination. The camera has taken some nice bird photos and fall color photos with amazing results.
Overall the D3300 has been the right choice for DSLR both as a starting point and use in the long run. It will provide a good long time of more that adequate service. It is proving to be the totally correct decision.

compact and light
this is my first dslr I only bought it because my phone camera although 12mp didn't have the ability to catch fast motion or close zoom.
after a lot of research I found the d3300 it has everything I need as a beginner and features I will be able to use when I feel more confident in using in the future, I didn't want a camera I would have to up-grade just to advance in photography and this is it I love the simplicity of it the guide mode was one reason I bought it but saying that I rarely use it if ever as I feel I have learnt a lot more about the camera by just experimenting with it as you have the ability to reset its features to factory default if you mess it up takes away the worry for me the only down side is the cost of accessories like lenses compared to others I researched the tech side of my purchase but not the cost side of accessories

There are so many cameras out there, and the D3300 has been a perfect choice for my needs. It is simple in operation, compact, and delivers very high image quality. I most often shoot raw, and enjoy the variety of interpretations possible with both the D3300 in-camera NEF processing, and the supplied ViewNX2 software. Yet anyone in our family's three generations can pick up the D3300 with its excellent, improved 18-55 VR II kit lens and enjoy making quality images in the Auto modes. As a past owner of Nikon's more upscale DSLRs, I enjoy the simpler, lighter and more compact experience of a D3300 in my later years.

I have been looking for a good camera with a descent price for a long time. I am extremely happy with this one. It's easy to use, great for beginners.

This is my first DSLR, and I was a little bit worried about the learning curve required to be able to take good pictures and to adjust the settings myself. It's automatic and guide modes were extremely helpful getting me started, and now I feel comfortable enough to start trying other settings and really get a feel for it. All of the pictures are super high quality, great color, and it's easy to use straight out of the box. This camera is small, lightweight, easy to carry around, and super fun to use!

I just so happened to be in the market for my first DSLR right about when Nikon had announced the camera and a fried which is a photographer that was helping me pick out a camera advised I wait and get a D3300, I did and I love it. Granted it is my first so I really don't have much to compare it to, but so far it has really helped my learning go very easily and smoothly and a lot of fun! I highly recommend this guy for beginners like myself!

Happy with this camera
Im a beginner and this is my first digital SLR, so Im not comparing it to competing cameras. Im still experimenting, but so far i am very pleased with the results. I find the GUIDE feature particularly helpful for taking good shots as it provides a some quick insight into the theory of photography without being too technical or overwhelming.

Mi primer cámara! La mejor decisión que he tomado!
Esta ha sido mi primer cámara con la cual estoy estudiando fotografía, estoy fascinado con ella y realmente me encanta! Tiene colores muy vivos y, a pesar de que conseguí el Kit más básico, he podido tomar excelentes fotografías! Muy ligera, versátil y de gran calidad.

Juste ce qu'il faut
Léger, abordable et facile d'utilisation il va remplacer avantageusement mon D90 que j'avais acheté pour utiliser d'anciennes lentilles mais qui s'est avéré trop complexe.
Je n'ai pas fait encore beaucoup d'essais mais jusqu'à maintenant ce boitier fait un travail impeccable.
J'ai hâte de voir ce que ça donnera sur mon écran d'ordinateur.

Felicitaciones a Nikon por esta camara, mi primera fue una D3100 y me encanto y no dure el año con ella cuando decidi venderla para invertir en este modelo, es satisfaccion garantizada no lo duden, en mi caso es una excelente camara, creo en lo personal que no hay que subestimarla al decir que es de iniciacion, porque tambien toma unas grandisimas fotos que no creeriamos que fue tomada con ella, si pueden hacer el sacrificio como un servidor haganlo no se arrepentiran.

Amazing pictures, not the best for film.
This camera, is absolutely stellar. Low light performance is great, and the battery life is even better.
The only thing I dislike (personally) is that to shoot video, you can ONLY view on the LCD screen, nothing through the viewfinder.

Good SLR for starters.
The only thing I miss is Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB). I can't understand why they doesen't include such an easy to implement feature. Without it I can't shoot HDR fotos without a tripod. This is the only reason I gave this product only 4 of 5 stars.

Camera Does Not Ship with Accessory Cover (Part BS-1)
Why Nikon chooses to include an accessory cover with some of their cameras and not the D3300 is problematic to me. For unknown reasons, Nikon made the decision to not include this part that, per Nikon's description, helps protect the accessory shoe from dust and moisture. If a part is providing that sort of protection, how can it not be included?
Adding to my dissatisfaction of Nikon's disrespect for this camera model and the consumers who buy this model is the insulting price point on their website to acquire an accessory cover - a tiny piece of plastic.. Currently, the price to purchase and have this part shipped in the US is just under $10. Am outraged and disappointed in Nikon.
