The Nikon D3300 is the new entry-level model for fans of an SLR. It follows the D3200. The image format is APS-C, and the sensor has no fewer than 24 megapixels. It looks exactly like the sensor of the Nikon D5300. In contrast to the D5300, the Nikon...

One of the biggest camera announcements at 2014's Consumer Electronics Show may well have been the little Nikon D3300 and its collapsible 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 VR II lens. It may not shoot 4K video or offer a curved LCD (those shows are all about the tech...

VERDICT Open Gallery As an entry-level camera, the Nikon D3300 excels. Stick it in Auto or play around with the Guide mode and you'll almost always get great photos, thanks mainly to that pixel-packed 24.3MP sensor and excellent autofocus. But...

As tech journalists, it's tempting to pooh-pooh iterative upgrades as worthless updates when more dramatic changes are more fun to write about. But progress is still progress, and that's worth celebrating. The Nikon D3300 exemplifies this quite well, I...

Like the older D3200, the new Nikon D3300 easily earns our recommendation. Image quality is excellent and videos have taken a nice step forward. We still have to knock Nikon for the mono sound in 2014 and asking people to pay another $60 for Wi-Fi via...

With fierce competition from CSCs, entry-level DSLRs have to offer a lot at a very competitive price. The Nikon D3300 has a fairly straightforward set of features when you look at its metering and AF systems, 95% viewfinder and no built-in Wi-Fi, but it...

All in all, you get an awful lot of camera for not much money with the Nikon D3300, making it an excellent choice if you're new to DSLRs. We'd like a few extra focus points for greater flexibility, but other than that there's much to like – not least of which is the price.

In the D3300, Nikon's just disproved the old adage about getting what you pay for. Here, you actually get an awful lot more than the £500 price would suggest. See also The best SLR cameras of 2014 . The Nikon D3300 is based on a 24.2 megapixel sensor...

The Nikon D3300 is an incremental improvement on its predecessor in terms of specification and features, but its new sensor raises the bar in terms of the image quality we've come to expect from entry level DSLRs. That on its own will probably be...

A straightforward but powerful camera, the Nikon D3300 strikes an excellent balance between the entry-level needs of quality and simplicity. It’s not without its issues, most notably that it struggles to keep images clean at high sensitivities. However, the price is hard to knock, and the D3300 really does do a lot of things right. A very worthy first DSLR.

We wouldn't go so far as to describe £550 as a bargain, but we do really like what the D3300 offers for the price. The new collapsible kit lens is great, especially for the kind of people buying this camera. As with all kit lenses though, the...
