Nikon D300s

 

With speedy 7-frames-per-second still image capture, Nikon's D300s won't let you miss a thing.

Top-notch image quality. Fast, 7-frames-per-second image capture. Extremely accurate 51-point autofocus system. HD video capture.

Low-ISO images are softer than those from competing cameras. Limited HD video recording options.

Nikon D300S Review

 

The Nikon D300 made quite an impact when it was first launched - enough to prompt us to conclude: 'There's simply no better semi-professional digital SLR on the market.' And, in many respects, it is still the camera to beat in that class - nearly two...

Highly competitive image quality at all ISO settings ; Excellent high ISO performance with low noise and good levels of detail ; Highly configurable Auto ISO function (can set maximum ISO and minimum shutter speed) ; 7 frames per second continuous...

Unreliable white balance under artificial lighting ; Slight tendency to overexpose in contrasty conditions ; Rolling shutter effect when shooting video ; Occasional 'grain' in blue skies, even at base ISO ; Contrast detection AF is slow (as it is on...

A relatively minor upgrade to one of the defining cameras of the semi-pro sector adds a useful HD video mode and a wealth of minor improvements that improve the already excellent handling. Although the D300S has stronger competition than its...

Nikon D300S review

 

When a camera has an 18-month product cycle, it's hard to squash some disappointment when its follow up has only a few enhancements, despite the fact that it's common to only make a major update with every other generation. When it's a great camera to...

Outstanding performance for its class; excellent photo quality; solidly built; flexible custom settings architecture; video capture; onboard wireless flash controller; dual card slots.

Some annoying design and interface quirks; no significant improvements in high ISO noise performance.

The Nikon D300s is a great camera, especially if you need the burst speed or slightly improved low-light focus, but if you don't care about video you might consider looking for a really good deal on a D300 and using what you save to splurge on a good...

Nikon D300s DSLR Camera Review

 

The D300s is Nikon's newest video-capable DSLR. While the camera did show some impressive results in our low light testing, we were disappointed by the fact that Nikon didn't implement any new video features as compared to last year's D5000.

Nikon D300s Review

 

This summer, nearly two years after the introduction of the D300, Nikon announced its successor, the D300s. The new model adds 720p HD video capture with optional autofocus, in-camera video editing, an on-board mono microphone and a stereo microphone...

If you've read the entire review, you will hardly have any doubts that the Nikon D300s is an excellent camera. Build quality is superb, handling and ergonomics are first-rate, and the abundance of dedicated external controls leads to quick and...

Nikon's taking a bit of a risk here, as like it not, the megapixel count still has the power to sway the wavering punter.
