Nikon’s incremental revisions to their entry-level D3000 series cameras means the latest model, the Nikon D3300 can compete with most other models in the range and should prove tempting against rival offerings. Read on to find out how the 24-Mpix sans AA filter D3300 performs.
We are already acquainted with the D3200: apart from a few ergonomic details, it’s the same camera as the compact and lightweight D3100 SLR, though missing the secondary display on its bridge for even greater compactness. The D3200 weighs only 454 grams (without battery or card). Unlike the D3100, the D3200’s lens is off-center for better balance and the highly practical LiveView/video mode activation tab of the D3100 and the D5100 has disappeared in favor of a more ergonomically mundane video recording button. The D3200 comes with a second (dorsal) infrared sensor to complement its front sensor for more practical infrared remote control. The motor selection tab (single-frame, burst, timer, remote control) is gone as well, again replaced by a direct-access button.
Tokina announces a new version of its wide-angle 11-16mm lens for APS-C cameras, featuring an aspherical element, an improved surface coating ,and an autofocus motor (AF-S equivalent) called SD-M (Silent Drive-Module).
The EOS 1100D (Rebel T3) replaces the EOS 1000 as Canon’s entry-level body. It combines a 12-megapixel sensor, Canon’s 9-point AF engine coupled to the 63-zone metering system introduced by the EOS7D, and of course the now-standard Digic 4 image processor. Taken individually, none of these features is really new, but the combination of all these solid elements should prove interesting. Moreover, the EOS 1100D is now gifted with a video recording function… but only 720p, which could be a limitation compared to what competitors propose for a similar price point.
