e-FotografijaNikon D300 preview at e-Fotografija : Our good friend and DIWA member Matjaz Intihar from e-Fotografija attended the Nikon press conference in Japan and was able to get his hands on the new Nikon D300 digital SLR camera. According to Nikon the Nikon D300 sets new standards of compact professional performance. The Nikon D300 offers fast power-up, quick response and outstanding flexibility to meet the needs of a wide variety of photographic assignments. The Nikon D300 also offers Live View, which presents photographers with a live image on the LCD screen, with two modes suited to either hand held or tripod shooting. Autofocus is possible in both Live View modes. The camera body is built from a magnesium alloy.

According to Matjaz: "Nikon is back in the saddle, and the saddle is on a very good horse. But they haven't won the race yet. Then again, for Nikon users, this is a great event. The Nikon D300 is an improved version of the Nikon D200. Continuing with the horse+saddle metaphor, Nikon just went from light trot to full-out gallop to catch up with their only real competitor. Personally, the screen wasn't all that convincing - Sony G1, for instance, has a much better screen.”

Nikon D300 digital SLR - AF system and Tracking
Matjaz continues: "The new 51 point AF system isn't much of a technological advance, but it's definitely a useful thing. The camera can be set to choose between just 9 or 22 points, making it faster to get to the desired point. However, the camera firmware has a much easier job of tracking the subject. Get the subject in focus on extreme right side, pan, and the focus will track all the way to the extreme left side.”

Nikon D300 - CMOS cleaning system
β€œThe D300 also has a CMOS cleaning system, however, its quality still has to be proven. There is also a software dust removal feature, which again seems to mean that the hardware system is not completely effective. Also, the D3 doesn't have such a system - again, this could mean that the system is not quite effective enough yet. However, it should prove useful for a hobbyist photographer.”, concludes Matjaz.
