Nikon D3300 Review – Say Goodbye to Anti-Aliasing

There is a growing popularity of mirrorless cameras, but it doesn’t mean that DSLR companies would easily back out of the competition, especially when the Nikon D3300 comes into full view. This entry-level DSLR is now making waves within the competition, primarily because it loses its anti-aliasing feature. Hence, and even though the camera is designed for the beginners, you will be able to get a lot more detail than Nikon’s other entry-level cameras, especially when you compare it with the Nikon D3100.

Nikon D3300 Review - Say Goodbye to Anti-Aliasing

The Nikon D3300 Brings More Sharpness Into the Mix

So what are you going to get with the Nikon D3300? It utilizes an APS-C CMOS sensor, and it shoots at 24.2-megpaixels. ISO range is at 100 to 12,800 (expandable to 100 to 25,600), and the auto-focusing system has 11-points (1 of which is cross-type). It is also capable of 5-frames-per-second in burst shooting mode, and also lets users shoot 1080p videos.

Nikon decided to remove the low-pass filter on the D3300 this time around. What does removing this filter mean, exactly? It means that you will get more detail in each shot, hence, you will be able to get sharper images, especially when you compare this camera to its two predecessors, them being the Nikon D3200 and D3100.

Just like the company’s own D5300, this entry-level DSLR has the second-generation processing engine, which is the EXPEED 4. This allows the camera to shoot continuously up to 5-frames-per-second. When shooting at JPEG formats, it will be able to shoot 100 fine quality photos before it takes a rest. This new processing engine also means that the camera is able to record Full HD videos at framerates of up to 50p or 60p.

This is also the second DSLR from the camera manufacturer to be using a monocoque construction. This means that the chassis is made out of a single piece of material, which makes it stronger and lighter than its direct predecessor. Furthermore, the firm also reduced the size of the DSLR ever so slightly, but you would still be hard-pressed to notice any difference.

When shooting with the Nikon D3300, as expected, you will be able to take advantage of an excellent resolving power. When you zoom images all the way up to 100-percent, you will clearly see all those fine details in your shots. If you want to take the jump from smartphone or compact camera into the world of DSLRs, then definitely consider this new offering from Nikon.
