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.

The Nikon D3000 is a replacement for the extremely popular Nikon D40, which for a little over two years has marked the entry point to the company's digital SLR lineup. The Nikon D3000 features a new body with slightly more rounded shoulders and a larger 3.0-inch LCD panel on its rear face. Most of the Nikon D3000's other changes bring together features previously seen in the D40x, D60, and D5000 models. New to the Nikon digital SLR camera lineup is a Guide mode, which walks new users through a few questions to set the camera up for the type of shot they seek. Nikon's D40 digital SLR was a consistently good performer for the company since its launch in November 2006, frequently found at or near the top of monthly sales charts, according to the company. The rise on the grip side of the Nikon D3000 has been relaxed a bit, giving your fingers less room. Like most recent Nikon digital SLRs, the D3000's cut is considerate of the left hand, with a slight rounding of the edge, seen in the lower right of the picture above.
Now with 13 modes on the Mode dial thanks to the addition of the GUIDE setting, the Nikon D3000's controls are otherwise unchanged from the D40. The Nikon D3000 is now shipping with the 18-55mm VR lens, an upgrade from the D40's non-image-stabilized lens.
Though positions have changed a bit, the controls of the Nikon D3000 are identical to the D40.
The new Guide mode mentioned above also gets a nod here, with the screenshot of the new Guide Menu, which is designed to simplify basic camera functions for the beginner.
The combination of a new image sensor and image processor has also brought an increase in both speed and sensitivity for the D3000. Autofocusing is also significantly improved since the D40, with the Nikon D3000 sharing the same Multi-CAM 1000 phase-detection autofocus sensor module that is also used in the D5000 and D90. There's no such thing as a free lunch, though, and the downside was that large light overloads could cause streaking or smearing in the D40's images.
The new shutter mechanism included in the Nikon D3000 is rated at 100,000 cycles, just like the D5000 and D90, a first for a camera at this price range. The D5200 employs newly developed Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor with 24.1 effective megapixels. The D5200 comes equipped with image-processing engine EXPEED 3, equivalent to that of higher-end models such as the D4.
The D5200's wide ISO sensitivity range is from ISO 100 to 6400, expandable to Hi 1 (ISO 12800 equivalent) and Hi 2 (ISO 25600 equivalent).
Active D-Lighting is effective for shooting, for example, a dark room including outside scenery seen through a window, high-contrast scenes such as at the seaside under strong sunlight, and backlit situations.
Two images taken with one shutter release at varying exposure are combined to produce a single image that has a wider dynamic range (range of contrast to reproduce tonal gradation) with less loss of detail in highlights and shadows. Image blur caused by camera shake tends to occur when shooting in low-lit situations, telephoto shooting and close-up shooting. This is an antireflective coating that originated from Nikon's work in semiconductor manufacturing technology. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces to correct certain types of lens aberration.
Even better, there's an aperture-ring feeler, so it meters with all AI and newer (1977-on) manual-focus lenses. The crazy 1.3x crop mode uses only the central 18 x 12mm of the sensor for 4,800 x 3,200 pixel images. Only the 15 central sensors can see horizontal lines ('cross type'), the rest only see vertical lines, just like the single focus sensor of the Nikon SP of 1956. 3D tracking, which continuously follows moving subjects within the 51 AF points, highlighting the activated AF point in the viewfinder. The built-in flash can be used as a remote commander to control Nikon's better external flashes. Heck, I use an old Nikon SB-30 flash on my cameras as a remote trigger for my studio strobes instead of a PC cord. EN-EL15 Li-Ion battery, first seen with the D7000, and now also used in the D800, D800E and D600.
Complain that the EN-EL15 is incompatible with the popular EN-EL3e of last generation's cameras, but the new battery lasts forever, so who cares? For instance, the D300s requires you buy a $150 receiver system in order to work with a wireless remote.
If you use an EN-EL-15 in the camera and a second one in the grip, Nikon rates them for a total of 1,900 continuous shots.


The D7100 has no native wireless ability, except for an infrared receiver for the excellent Nikon ML-L3 Remote. The Wi-Fi adapter doesn't do much by itself; it does a lot when using your iPhone or other doo-dads with various dedicated Nikon apps. The WR-1 allows radio remote control out to about 100 meters (300 feet) under unusually good conditions outdoors, and much less indoors.
You need to buy more than just one to use at your D7100; you still need a second WR-1 in your hand remotely as well as the one on the D7100!
When you do this, you can set and see most of the D7100's settings on the WR-1 in your hand.

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.

The D3000 also includes Nikon's Dust Reduction and Picture Control Systems, and offers a burst rate of three frames per second. The control layout is nearly identical to that of the D40, ensuring that owners of the previous camera will feel right at home.
The D3000 also includes Nikon's Dust Reduction and Picture Control Systems, and offers a burst rate of three frames per second.
It was also one of our favorites, with a simple interface and excellent low-light performance. The Nikon D3000's body has been redesigned, but its dimensions and weight are nearly identical. Just inside the grip, there's a nice indented zone for your fingertips to dig into, one of my favorite features on Nikon digital SLRs.
This makes it just a little more comfortable to rest the Nikon D3000 in your left palm as your fingers reach out to adjust the zoom and focus rings. It's important to note, though, that Nikon traded two letters to be able to put VR on there: ED.
Given the recent reshuffling of controls on most of the higher-end digital SLR lineup, it's good to see Nikon stick with a winning design. On the inside, the most significant change since the D40 is that the Nikon D3000 now sports an EXPEED image processor that works in concert with a higher-resolution DX-format image sensor. Nikon's entry-level DSLR is now able to shoot images at three frames per second, and offers ISO sensitivities from 100 to 1,600 equivalents in 1 EV steps, with the ability to increase this to ISO 3,200 equivalent using the Hi-1 setting. The Multi-CAM 1000 module offers 11 focusing points, of which the center point is a cross-type sensor. Another important change in the Nikon D3000 as compared to the D40 is that it includes the company's three-pronged strategy for controlling dust on the image sensor. The good news is that the Nikon D3000 won't suffer from these problems, unlike the D40 -- but the x-sync speed is slower as a result. The original D40 was one of the earliest cameras to address the needs of consumers stepping up to an SLR for the first time, by offering a robust help system that functioned as a portable user guide of sorts, always available to refer to as needed. Combined with the sharp depiction of NIKKOR lenses, the high resolution renders details of the subject minutely and delivers images with great definition and depth.
It processes multiple tasks in parallel at high speed while maintaining high precision to bring out the full potential of the 24.1 megapixels for both still images and movies. The camera reduces noise effectively even at high ISO sensitivity setting while maintaining definition as much as possible to deliver sharp images.
It preserves details in both highlights and shadowy areas in such situations, maintaining moderate contrast to reproduce brightness as you see it.
The result is images with less noise and rich tonal gradation throughout the entire frame including shadows and highlights even in high-contrast shooting scenes. 24 megapixels and render high-definition images, using a high optical performance lens with superior resolution is of vital importance.
Nikon built the Vibration Reduction function (VR) into the lens to reduce the effects of camera shake. Ghost effects caused by red light, which were incredibly difficult to prevent with conventional coating, and ghost and flare effects caused by light entering the lens diagonally are effectively reduced to provide clear images.
For lenses using normal optical glass, the longer the focal length, the more difficult it is to correct the chromatic aberration that causes color fringing. The D7100 also gives full-color Matrix metering and EXIF data with manual-focus lenses if you share the lens' data in a menu. It's the best $18 you'll spend with Nikon, because it also works with most of Nikon's other less expensive DSLRs. These places have the best prices and service, which is why I've used them since before this website existed. The Nikon D3000 also inherits the eleven point Multi-CAM 1000 autofocus module previously seen in the Nikon D5000.
Now two and a half years old, the D40 is the second oldest model in the lineup, so it isn't surprising to see Nikon announce its replacement. The new lens lacks the Extra-low Dispersion glass found on its predecessor's lenses, which is a shame. Most competing SLRs at this size, namely the Rebel XS and XSi, have quite a few icons and buttons back here, which probably serve to confuse more novice photographers than they help.
By way of comparison, the Nikon D40's Multi-CAM 530 module offered only three points, with a cross-type center point. Nikon's Dust Reduction System uses vibration to shake dust off the low-pass filter, whereupon the mirror chamber design causes an air flow with each shutter release that carries dust to a capture receptacle.
While many more experienced photographers likely never touch them, features like these can prove invaluable to the newcomers.
The sensor also supports wide ISO sensitivity range, high-speed readout during live view and Full HD movie recording. The image processing of the EXPEED 3 is excellent at color reproduction, gradation processing and image quality at high sensitivity. Setting high ISO sensitivity enables you to shoot at faster shutter speeds and capture pictures without worrying about image degradation caused by camera shake even in low-light situations or when shooting a moving subject.
NIKKOR lenses are Nikon digital SLR cameras' genuine interchangeable lenses and are highly praised by many photo enthusiasts and professional photographers. Different from a blur-reduction function built into the camera body, this ensures a stable viewfinder image during shooting for precise focusing and comfortable confirmation of composition. The biggest source of support for this free website is when you use these links, especially these directly to the D7100 at Adorama (either body-only or with 18-105mm VR lens) or at Amazon as a body-only or kit with 18-105mm VR lens, when you get yours.
Potential incompatibility with future cameras is one of the steep prices one pays for trying to save a few dollars yesterday on a cheap lens.
The Nikon D3000 refreshes the D40 design with a new body and a combination of features previously seen in the D40x, D60, and D5000 models, plus a few that are entirely new. The new body will be immediately familiar to D40 owners, as the Nikon D3000 keeps all of the controls in the same locations, although the exact shape of a few buttons has changed some.
Nikon is noting that the D3000's on-screen interface offers a 20% increase in font size as compared to previous cameras.


That's the same resolution as offered by the now-retired, more expensive D60 and its sibling the D40x. Also new to the D3000 is the ability to shoot not only as JPEG or .NEF Raw image files, but also to simultaneously record each image in both formats.
The Nikon D3000 also adds Nikon's Scene Recognition System, 3D Tracking capability, and an auto-area AF mode while retaining the D40's single-point and dynamic area AF modes.
The final part of the approach requires the optional Nikon Capture NX 2 software, and involves creation of a reference photo that is used to identify the location of stubborn dust specks.
The Nikon D3000 takes the concept from the D40, and really builds on it by presenting a new Guide Mode position on the Mode dial. This superior high-sensitivity performance is also effective for D-Movie and you can record beautiful movies without large-scale lighting equipment even when light is scarce. The D5200 employs a new image-processing system that causes less shift of color even when the strength level is increased. The exposure differential of the two images up to 3 EV and the smoothness of the edge where the two exposures meet are automatically set according to the strength level.
Employing an array of Nikon's original advanced technologies, NIKKOR lenses feature high optical performance and superior rendering performance, and support high image quality by getting the most out of the D5200's high pixel count in both still images and movies through the wide and diverse lineup.
The VR function, optimized for the characteristics of each lens, is effective for not only still image shooting but also movie recording using live view. It helps me keep adding to this free website when you get yours through these links — but I receive nothing for my efforts if you buy elsewhere. Nikon shares nothing with its competitors about lens compatibility, so if you want to buy a Tamron or Sigma, you're gambling that it will work with tomorrow's camera.
The mode dial also has a new diamond-patterned knurling on its outer edges that make it a little easier to grip. As with both of those cameras, the total sensor resolution is 10.75 megapixels, and the maximum image dimensions possible from the Nikon D3000 are 3,872 x 2,592 pixels. The Multi-CAM 1000 system integrates the AF sensor data with information from the 420-pixel RGB metering sensor (shown at right), allowing the system to better track objects moving through the scene. These can then be replaced by automatically interpolating data from areas of the image adjacent to the dust. This made it easy to produce very brief exposures without the expense of a really high-speed mechanical shutter, and as a consequence also permitted very high x-sync speeds. As far as image quality goes, the Nikon D3200 delivers stunning results from such a small and inexpensive package. Furthermore, from image processing and card recording to image playback and image transfer, EXPEED 3 manages massive amounts of data at high speed. When in the Shoot menu, the photographer is asked a number of questions, and the Nikon D3000 then offers guidance on what to set -- and importantly, why each suggestion is being made. While I continue to tout the Sony RX-100 (read our review of that camera), which is far and away the best point and shoot on the market, its quality isn’t as good as the Nikon D3200, nor is it as inexpensive.
Even with high ISO noise reduction and Active D-Lighting, continuous shooting speed is not sacrificed, realizing comfortable shooting. Unlike HDR (High Dynamic Range), Active D-Lighting does not require the process of combining images, therefore it is effective for shooting moving subjects such as people.
Even in conditions that aren’t quite perfect, it rivals my Nikon D600 (read our full review of this camera). Thanks to its huge 24.2 MP resolution, the D3200 can capture great detail, which will allow for huge prints (this will actually be overkill for most users).
This is where the camera’s dynamic range and high ISO performance come into play, and the Nikon D3200 is no slouch in this regard. Now, these higher ISOs are far from perfect, and don’t even come close to rivaling the high ISO shots I can capture with my Nikon D600, but for an entry level camera, I was impressed. I took a couple of shots at ISO 6400, but I don’t think those are of acceptable quality. Few real world photographers are using ISO 6400 in bright sunlight, so I don’t think these tests have much value.
Besides just general image sharpness, these are two of the big things that separate point and shoot cameras from DSLRs. When editing these photos, I was shocked at just how much highlight detail I was able to recover. Even entry level DSLRs have always been able to pull some detail out of shadows, but usually even the slightest highlight recovery on entry level models has resulted in overly grey areas that should be white. That qualification is also done as a bit of a reminder that at the end of the day, this is still only an entry level DSLR. In fact, I’d hazard a guess that 95% of DSLR users will never need more than an entry level DSLR user provides. The advanced features of a higher end DSLR are largely only useful if you understand how to use them, anyway.If you are one of the 5% who really wants to pursue photography as a hobby (or more than a hobby), I would think long and hard about the D3200. Entry level DSLRs can be a good place for budding photographers to learn and then resell once they outgrow them. They’re also great if you have a limited budget, which is much better spent on lenses. My critical distinction is whether or not a camera can fit in my pocket (which is why I love the Sony RX-100). These entry level models have come really far since the Nikon D40 that I used to learn photography, to the point where you aren’t really handcuffed when using one of the entry level Canon or Nikon DSLRs. This makes it great for taking to Walt Disney World or Disneyland, as it can easily be tossed in a backpack or carried all day without causing any real inconvenience. Just make sure it suits your needs (and future growth) before buying it!If you do want to purchase this lens–or any other photography equipment–please use the Amazon links here (like this one).
Reply Albertha September 28, 2014 Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog? My website is in the very same niche as yours and my users would really benefit from some of the information you present here. Reply Genevieve August 26, 2014 It’s going to be end of mine day, except before finish I am reading this great post to increase my experience.
Reply Jordan July 7, 2014 I should have read this review before I took the plunge into DSLR-land by purchasing the D3200, but I’m glad I accidentally got a good, solid entry level DSLR. A base model DSLR fits the bill nicely.On a completely different note, I want to say that I’ve been reading your blog since I started planning this trip last December, and it has been immensely helpful! Reply Chad Marx July 6, 2014 I was wondering if there was any truth to the rumors that the firmware update released in January had any effect on third party battery compatibility for the D3200? We are going to WDW in August and I have been kicking around the idea of buying a second battery as a back-up, but don’t like the idea of having to spend $40+ to buy a name brand battery if I can get an aftermarket one for $10-15. Reply Shannon May 1, 2014 I keep going back and forth between the d3200 and a canon s100. My husband has the s100 and it seems like it will be easier to transport within the disney parks but I have been intrigued by the higher quality of the nikon.
I am hoping I can get away with the s100 as it seems more compact but I would also really like incredible photos. Reply Tom Bricker May 3, 2014 I am a big fan of the Canon S series of point and shoots, but the image quality does not compare to a DSLR.
I got the D3200 for Christmas and been so scared to use the camera because I have no idea what I am doing.
Just wanted to get your opinion on what you think about either of the lens for a beginner like me. Reply Jason Evangelho February 9, 2014 Tom, thank you for this review (and indeed for ALL of your Disney photography tips here). My wife and I are seriously considering the D3200, but I’ve seen some early reviews of the D3300 which indicate it may be worth the extra $200 or so.
Reply Tom Bricker February 9, 2014 Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to try out the D3300 yet.
