Taking snapshots with a smartphone is convenient, but are those photos good enough for preserving precious moments? The D3300's new EXPEED 4 lets you shoot at high speeds up to 5 frames per second, shoot in low light with high ISO sensitivity, create high-resolution panoramas and much more. Your 24.2-megapixel photos and 1080p Full HD videos will be so impressive, so rich with detail† and color—so lifelike—they'll bring back the feelings of the moments they capture.
†Exquisite detail reproduction realized by an image sensor unit designed without an optical low-pass filter.

You can even use your compatible smartphone or tablet as a remote monitor for the D3300.

Using the D3300 is super easy—and a blast. Can't get the whole scene into your frame? Turn on Easy Panorama Mode and pan across the scene—the D3300 will capture the entire view as a high-resolution panoramic image. It's that easy! Guide Mode gives step-by-step help when you need it (it's like having an expert at your side), and you can easily get creative with built-in Image Effects, filters and more. You even get to choose which color you want for your D3300—black, grey or red!
The D3300 is a small and light HDSLR camera even when paired with the included AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II lens, which has a new ultra-compact design. The combination is designed to fit comfortably in your hands, and all of the D3300's buttons and dials are positioned for convenient, efficient operation. You'll take the D3300 everywhere you go, which means you'll bring home all the beautiful memories of your activities.
Like all DSLR cameras, the D3300 has an optical viewfinder that gives you a true view through the lens of the camera—and what a view it is! If you've been using a point-and-shoot camera, you'll find it easier to frame your shots, follow moving subjects, zoom in on bright sunny days and more.
When the action starts, hold down the shutter button to capture every movement, expression and feeling at 5 frames per second—that's 5 beautiful photos for every second of action! You won't believe some of the moments you'll catch thanks to Nikon's new high-speed EXPEED 4 processing engine.
The D3300's 11-point Autofocus System locks onto your subjects as soon as they enter the frame and stays with them until you catch the shot you want. Even fast-moving subjects are captured with tack-sharp precision. And when you're recording Full HD video, Full-time Autofocus keeps the focus where you want it.
The D3300 doesn't only take great photos, it takes dazzling 1080p Full HD video with sound, too! Record smooth, ultra-sharp HD movies you can play back on your HDTV or upload to video sites. You can even apply those fun special effects for more creativity!
