The new D3300 camera has now been released and some details are as follows:

Nikon D3300 DSLR Camera

This camera is aimed more at the new photographer just getting into digital SLR photography. It has a high resolution 24.2 megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor with the optical low-pass filter removed to give high resolution and includes the latest EXPEED 4 image processing system.

It is really the next step up from point and shoot photography. It features a 5 frames-per-second (fps)  high speed continuous shooting mode and an ISO range of 100 to 12800.

Film makers can also take advantage of the smooth Full HD movie recording with 1080/60p support.

The D3300 also features 13 special effect modes and various retouch menu options to extend the enjoyment of your photographic expression. Beginner photographers will also appreciate the camera’s Guide Mode which provides step by step instructions for capturing great images.

This camera is probably the ideal camera for photographers who wish to stay with the smaller DX format which is considerably cheaper that the larger Nikon FX format.
