Sharing stellar billing today with the flagship Nikon D3 is the new D300 digital SLR updating the companyâ€™s very successful D200 model.
The new Nikon D300 is a DX-format DSLR with 12.3 megapixels and a brand-new 3-inch LCD screen that packs 920,000 pixels. It also features a broad light sensitivity range of ISO 200 to ISO 3200, (plus LO 1 for IS0 100 equivalent and HI 1 for IS0 6400 equivalent settings).
The D3 CMOS sensor’s integrated A/D converter features the ability to select between 12-bit and 14-bit conversion, making it possible to shoot using high-quality 14-bit NEF (RAW) format.
The D300 is capable of shooting at a rapid 6 fps, and also allows a faster 8fps when using the optional Multi-Power Battery Pack MB-D10, in continuous bursts of up to 100 shots at full 12.3 megapixel resolution.
The Nikon D300 also claims to be the first digital SLR to support next-generation high-speed card UDMA, which enables high speed recording of photos.
