The biggest help is when you use any of these links when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live.
As this page is copyrighted and formally registered, it is unlawful to make copies, especially in the form of printouts for personal use. Many of these settings are locked-out when the D3300 is in the green AUTO mode, set on the big top dial. Most non-Nikon lenses from Tamron, Tokina, Quantaray, Sigma and anyone other than Nikon may not autofocus at all on the D3300. The great news is that the D3300 is set-up right out of the box to work great under almost every situation. I leave the D3300's autofocus settings as it came from the factory for most of my shooting. I'll go to one of these other settings only if the default settings of AF-A and Auto Area (explained below) aren't working for me. For still subjects, I leave it as above, or might set it to AF-S and Single Point (explained below) if the default isn't selecting the correct things all by itself. For sports and moving subjects, AF-A and Auto Area as set by default usually work, but if I'm going to be shooting sports all day, I'll set it to AF-C and 3D-tracking (explained below). Select an appropriate AF area with the D3300's Multi Controller to select your subject, then as you keep the shutter button pressed halfway and keep shooting, the D3300 will keep that subject in focus as it moves all around the frame!
When I hand my D3300 to a non-photographer, I leave the D3300 at its defaults of AF-A and Auto Area. You can set AUTO on the top dial and it will choose this AF mode, as well as reset a lot of other things back to default.


Older AF and AF-D lenses have no AF Mode switch, but that's OK, because they can't autofocus with the D3300 anyway; they are always in Manual focus mode! Once the INFO screen is displayed, press the Multi Selector and highlight the first option along the bottom of the INFO screen. Set this on your lens if you can, not here in this menu, since if you select it on your INFO screen, you're now stuck in manual focus regardless of how you set your lens. I only use the settings below if Auto Area isn't guessing my subject properly, for instance, if it's focusing on a closer distraction instead. I use this (or 3D tracking below) if the Auto Area mode isn't picking the correct sensor for me.
This is an older tracking mode left over from earlier cameras; the 3D mode below is even better. These let you select which sensor to use to start, and then the D3300 is allowed to use any of the sensors around the one you selected as it sees fit. In these settings, the D3300 first uses whichever area you select with the rear multi-selector, and will use the other areas automatically if the subject moves away for a moment. You won't see which area is selected in the finder, but you can see it on playback if you use the right software. The rear multi-selector is also used to select the first AF area from which the D3300 tracks. With 3D tracking, you may prefer always to focus with the middle sensor, and then move the camera to recompose.
My biggest source of support is when you use any of these links, especially this link directly to the D3300 at Adorama or directly to the D3300 at Amazon, when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live.


If you wish to make a printout for personal use, you are granted one-time permission only if you PayPal me $5.00 per printout or part thereof. Most traditional (screw-type) AF lenses from 1986 through today will not autofocus on the D3300. You have to hold the shutter down halfway so the AF system can focus and lock, and then the camera will fire instantaneously when you press the shutter the rest of the way. This is one of many ways the D3300 saves money so it can do pretty much the same thing for $650 as a $6,500 Nikon D4s does. This clever AF-A mode looks at the subject: if it's holding still, the D3300 locks the focus in AF-S mode, and if the subject is moving, the D3300 tracks it as it moves nearer and farther in AF-C mode.
If you're like me, you'll forget you set this, think your lens or camera is broken and send it in for repair!
It lets the D3300 track things as they move around the frame, and shows you which sensor is selected as it tracks your subject.
I use the 3D mode for sports, running animals and birds in flight if Auto Select isn't working for me.
These places have the best prices and service, which is why I've used them since before this website existed.
