There are already a number of reviews online for the Nikon D300; here are two of them recently posted. The conclusion seems to be that itâ€™s one great camera with a richness of features you can hardly ask for anything more. Beginners however will have to think twice about its price.
George Schaub at ShutterBug.com writes, â€œthe D300 is a camera that allows for picture taking in just about any lighting condition for any type of rendition you desire. It does require time to get to know the camera and all its options, witnessed by the supplied 400+ page instruction manual. And experimentation with all the menu items you might like to change is important before you commit to some serious shooting. But focusing, exposure, and image customization is certainly state of the art, delivering stunning images in either 12- or 14-bit NEF (Nikon raw) files.â€
CreativePro comments, â€œIf youâ€™re shopping for a mid-range SLR, this camera should definitely one of your final candidates — youâ€™ll be hard-pressed to come up with a practical feature it doesnâ€™t have.â€
