NikonNikon D300 DSLR Review : Nikon produced a fabulous digital SLR camera with the new D300. A SLR camera you can't get around as an advanced photographer and I can imagine the competition being very impressed with the impact the D300 has made. The shortcomings of the D200 are wiped away and Nikon have added some beautiful things. The Nikon D300 has become a smaller version of the Nikon D3 and that is a real compliment. Nikon did not change much to the housing and there was no need to either. The solid weatherproof housing is a joy for the photographer. The hand-fit and operation are perfect and the viewfinder is a real jewel. Besides a large and sharp view it offers 100% frame coverage which is highly important. > Read our full Nikon D300 review.

Nikon D300 Live view LCD Monitor
A welcoming addition is the LCD monitor on the back of the Nikon D300. Not only because of its huge size of 3-inches but also because of its high resolution. It gives you a real VGA image with a large viewing angle. It's ideal for replaying the pictures and scrolling through the menu. This monitor puts Nikon ahead of nearly every competitor that might have the same large LCD monitor but not with the same high resolution. The new AF system is one of the most significant innovations, mainly because it works together with the color data of the 3D matrix metering. You will be highly surprised when you look through the viewfinder and watch the focus areas change with your object.

12 Megapixels will deliver large files. Certainly when shooting in NEF (RAW) the file size will increase quickly. A 12 bit NEF, non-compressed, takes up some 19.4MB and when compressed still 11.3MB. It means that you have to invest in memory cards. A 2GB card seems the minimum capacity to me, but a 4GB card will do better. The Nikon D300 is a very interesting digital SLR camera on paper and as far as I am concerned it is one of the most important introductions these days. We have tested the Nikon D300 to see how well everything works in practice in combination with the new AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm 1:2.8 G ED and the AF-S Nikkor 24-70 1:2.8 G ED lenses. Our findings can be read in the full Nikon D300 review. Be sure you also see our Nikon D300 Antarctica field test.
