Easy to use, many functions, fast, and an exceptional value. Unlike other cameras I've had, this has never given me problems. I have more expensive cameras but I love the Nikon D300. My son is entering the picture and he already wants to take me!… Read Full Review

“Love this camera!”

Written on: 06/11/2011 by camerabuffy (2 reviews written)

Does everything it says it will, and then some. Is somewhat pricey and bulky to use for someone who needs a camera seldomly but when you use this, photos turn out perfectly. Best to learn how to use all the features and also on how totaled great photo with an SLR. Look online for great deals or buy from your local camera store if they offer free lessons with your purchase… Read Full Review

“Magnificent!!”

Written on: 15/08/2011 by jimstrummer (3 reviews written)

The best APS-C DSLR on the market at the moment, by a long way. I use it at weddings, for portraits, landscapes,.... just a fabulous all-rounder. Build quality is excellent and performance reliable. Picture quality is astonishing for a small sensor camera. I love it… Read Full Review

Mmmm, some rather bizarre comments Jim. Of course it's an all rounder, it's only a body, it's the lens that determines what you use it for. And to say it's the best APS-C DSLR on the market by a long way presumes that you've used the others. Have you? Regardless, I'm glad you're happy with it.

Written on: 11/06/2009 by amclaurin (2 reviews written)

Before buying any camera I would advise people to go to a real dealers and actually try holding the camera and using it for a few minutes with the lenses you want to use. I say this because I went to a dealers after reading many reviews to buy the Nikon D90 and ended up with the D300, simply because paired with the lens I most wanted (the 105mm Macro) the D300 fitted my hands perfectly and the D90 didn't. This is a heavy camera but one where you feel the engineering quality, after a while you… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/05/2009 by brian102 (3 reviews written)

Bought this D300 as a backup to a Nikon D700 (well you never can tell), performs just as well and sometimes forget which is which!

Went for a 300 over another 700 (besides cost) was for the smaller sensor giving a 1.5x extra zoom. Ok ISO not quite as good but nice to have the extra reach with a 300mm!… Read Full Review

Where in the world did you get your data for rating image quality @ 6/10. What planet are you on. This is the best camera I've handled since my Canon F1! The Nikon D300 Rocks in my opinion! Low light sensitivity, Weight, Controls design, Built-in intervalometer, Auto ISO/w selectable min shutter speeds, mega color sensitivity profiles, 3" 920000 dots screen, High contrast auto adjustment, auto ev correction/bracketing, 8fps motor drive, 14 bit raw capture option, built-in GPS ability w/your GPS… Read Full Review

“If you're going to shell out 1,300 quid on a camera,...”

Written on: 11/12/2007 by zombie371 (2 reviews written)

If you're going to shell out 1,300 quid on a camera, chances are you'll be at least a semi-professional, if not a pro. And so you'll be using Adobe Photoshop and running the camera in RAW mode, rather than cheap and cheerful jpg mode (and hey, if all you want are jpegs then this may be your dream camera).

It's a great pity then that Nikon forgot to ask Adobe to release a RAW plugin for this camera before they released the kit. Oh, Adobe have done a plug-in for the LATEST version of Photoshop… Read Full Review

Qu451M0D0's Response to zombie371's Review

Written on: 02/04/2008

Can't help disagreeing. The RAW issue you mention IS an Adobe issue. Backward compatibility is fine and Nikon have taken that to extremes with the lens mount (how many times have Canon changed the lens mount? Or Pentax? Or Olympus).
<br/>The RAW file changes are necessary to introduce additional features. Its unreasonable to expect that you will be able to use old software to manipulate new RAW files. Its like expecting an old printer or scanner driver to work with your new printer or scanner.
<br/>Perhaps it isn't Nikon you should be criticising but Adobe for not releasing an updated ACR download quickly enough?

Thought this was a review of the D300 not Adobe!
<br/>Not a fan of Adobe software - ok maybe it ' s the most use unfriendly software ever - but that ' s not really the point of the review! Wrting in June 2009 using Photoshop CS3, RAW is absolutely fine!

I disagree with this review because...The fault is with Adobe and not Nikon. This is a semi-pro camera and it should be expected that anyone shooting in raw should keep their software reasonably up to date.

I'm interested in the Camera not issues with Ver 5.x PS! . . . I use a Mac so all the Windows winging is irrelevant to me. Get a Mac, take pictures, do your stuff and take more pictures :)
