Creating beautiful photos and videos has never been more fun.
Life is full of surprising, joyful moments—moments worth remembering. The D3300 makes it fun and easy to preserve those moments in the lifelike beauty they deserve: stunning 24.2-megapixel photos and 1080p Full HD videos with tack-sharp details, vibrant colors and softly blurred backgrounds. With its included zoom lens, the new ultra-compact AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II, the D3300 is a small and light HDSLR and easy to use, too. Like sharing photos? The D3300 photos can appear instantly on your compatible smartphone or tablet for easy sharing with the optional WU-1a Wireless Adapter*! Whether you're creating high-resolution panoramas, adding artistic special effects or recording HD video with sound, the D3300 will bring you endless joy, excitement and memories—just like the special moments of your life.
Beautiful memories made easy
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.
Impress with every shot
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!
Enjoy the view
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.
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.
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.
