This camera outfit includes the versatile AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II lens which delivers the sharpest, most color-rich results imaginable. Optimized for Nikon's new high-resolution DX-format image sensors, it borrows the ultra-compact retractable lens barrel design from the Nikon 1 system. Nikon's remarkable Vibration Reduction technology provides 4 stops of blur-free handheld shooting -- enjoy crisp, clear images even if your hands are a bit unsteady and shoot at slower shutter speeds in low-light situations.
Create stunning lifelike photos and HD videos - 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.
Compact, lightweight and reliable - The D3300 is a small and light HD-SLR 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.
Focus on the details - 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.
Spectacular panoramas, Guide Mode and fun Special Effects - 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.
Enjoy the view - Like all D-SLR 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.
Catch every moment - 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.
Brighten shadowy areas - The D3300's Active D-Lighting preserves the details and tones in both the bright and dark areas of your photos, so shadows are no problem. A new D-Lighting setting in the Retouch menu provides optimal correction for portraits, highlighting your subject against an evenly lit background.
Easily edit your photos - Make your photos even more impressive with the D3300's Retouch Menu. Easily crop in on your subject, alter the coloring, add special effects and more right in the camera -- no additional software needed.
Comfortable live view shooting using a large LCD monitor - Live view shooting using an LCD monitor feels more like shooting with a compact digital camera. This is convenient when it is difficult to use the viewfinder to take high-angle or low-angle shots, or when you want to determine composition using approx. 100% frame coverage in landscape or portrait photography. You can shoot while confirming your subject with the large, easy-to-view, 7.5-cm (3-in.) VGA (approx. 921k-dot), LCD monitor. The desired AF area can be selected by moving a focus point with the multi selector. For close-up shooting of flowers and other small subjects using a tripod, you can magnify images up to approx. 9.4 times to check the exact focus.
Succeed in tricky situations - Even if you're new to D-SLR photography, getting great results in difficult situations couldn't be easier -- just select from 6 common Scene Modes for your situation, or switch to Full Green Auto Mode and let the camera pick for you.
Add some style - Easily shoot in Black & White, enhance the intensity of colors, optimize the tones for flattering portraits and more with Picture Controls. Select one of 6 presets or create your own.
Share photos instantly with your compatible smartphone or tablet - Attach the optional WU-1a Wireless Adapter and marvel as the photos you take with the D3300 instantly appear on your compatible smartphone or tablet. Share your favorite shots without missing a beat -- text them, email them, upload them to your favorite social networking sites -- it's your choice! You can even use your compatible smartphone or tablet as a remote monitor for the D3300. See what the camera sees and fire the shutter, perfect for self-portraits and group photos that actually include you.
Grow your capabilities - The D3300 is compatible with Nikon's complete collection of legendary NIKKOR lenses and optimized for AF-S DX-format NIKKOR lenses. Every lens offers a unique view of the world. Have fun growing your own collection. (less)
