The D3300 is a compact and versatile camera featuring a DX-format 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor and EXPEED 4 image processor to enable high-resolution imaging, notable low-light sensitivity to an expandable ISO 25600, continuous shooting to 5 fps, and full HD 1080p video recording. Additionally, the sensor's design omits the traditional optical low-pass filter in order to gain the utmost sharpness and resolution from both photos and videos. These imaging assets are complemented by an 11-point autofocus system which provides quick and accurate focusing capabilities to suit working with a variety of subject types in nearly any lighting situation. For live view monitoring and image playback, a 3.0" 921k-dot LCD screen is available and the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter can also be used to provide Wi-Fi connectivity for remote camera control and wireless image transfer to a linked mobile device.
The Silent Wave Motor of the 18-105mm yields speedy, silent, and smooth autofocus performance with fulltime manual focus override for precise manual control when needed. This AF motor is very helpful when tracking moving subjects and its quiet performance benefits video recording. Nikon's Vibration Reduction Image Stabilization compensates against the blur caused by camera shake and provides the ability to handhold the camera at shutter speeds up to 3.5 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. VR is particularly beneficial when shooting at telephoto focal lengths and in dim light and the effect of stabilization can be seen in the viewfinder, making composing and capturing the image easier.
