Nikon has unveiled its latest entry level DSLR camera at CES 2014 this week. The camera is called the D3300 and it has a resolution of 24.2MP. It also uses the Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor. The images are processed by the latest Nikon EXPEED 4 image-processing engine. Since the camera is aimed at those new to photography and DSLRs, it has a special Guide Mode.
That Guide mode is deigned to help photographers learn to shoot images with the camera. The kit lens that the camera comes with is an 18 to 55mm lens. The camera has the ability to shoot continuous bursts at five frames per second. The view finder has a magnification of 0.85x. Nikon also gave the camera the ability to shoot full 1080p HD resolution video at 60p.
Other features of the D3300 include Special Effects mode that can be applied to still images and movies. The body of the camera is made of a carbon finer monocoque. That process was first used on the D5300 launched in November 2013. That tech makes the camera strong and durable, while being lightweight. The D3300 also has an optional WiFi accessory that allows it to connect with smartphones and tablets to share images.
