too small

Stuart Vaughan-Williams, Amazon

  • Summary: The detail is but it is about half the size I expected. I Have to put on my reading glasses to refer to it. I don't wear them using my camera.

Handy Chart, expensive, poorly implemented

A. S. Donnelly, Amazon
4 June 2009
  • Summary: This is a handy "cheat sheet" chart, but as others have mentioned it could have been better implemented. Mine began to separate at the seams. It is pricey for what it is. Nothing in the materials, construction or "workmanship" warrants the price charged. I have since come to much prefer the Thom Hogan e-Books, which include a which include a "To Go" book and a smaller laminated card of my own construction.

I will come back to this review.

  • Summary: It would appear that nobody is producing tutorial DVDs about Nikon cameras in the UK - hence my having purchased a number of products similar to this one from the USA. The person wishing to learn about the Nikon D300 camera is either someone who already knows about digital cameras and is moving across to the Nikon D300 or is someone who has chosen this camera as their first digital camera.

Not bad if you need such a reference

Redneck, Amazon
20 August 2008
  • Summary: This little fold out is not a bad item to have in your camera case for new D300 camera owners. I can't say I've ever used mine on a shoot, but it's there just in case. Good quality construction, color-coded subject organization, it should last fairly well through normal lite usage. If you need to refer to this all the time, you should really take the time to learn your camera. I highly recommend David Busch's Nikon D300 Guide to Digital SLR Photography for that purpose.

The Nikon D300: Great Image Quality, Awesome Speed, But Still Some Reliability Questions.

jvandegr, epinions.com
16 December 2007
  • Summary: Conditionally recommended - great features and image quality, but still some questionable reliability, outdated live view mode, and no in-camera image stabilization,
  • Pros: Low noise at high ISO, improved dynamic range, professional feature set, very responsive.
  • Cons: Camera failures due to live view mode and poor lens mount, no in-camera image stabilization.

Great in it's day, but now outdated and overpriced compared to the D7000.

  • Summary: I own one of these and also a D7000. Before that, a D90. Pics from the D90 and D300 were hard to tell apart until ISO's were up over 1000 then the D300 had a about a 1 stop advantage. The D7000 eats both the D90 and D300 in every respect. Image quality... Hi ISO handling..... image quality..... colour..... image quality..... features..... image quality..... battery life etc. And did I mention image quality?

  • Excerpt: В целом неплохая камера , но убила картинка с нее.Да если рассматривать кропы в 200% картинка (с нормальной оптикой) порезче , чем на D200 -;)Я может не совсем понимаю ,но нет у этой матрицы динамического диаиазона и "правильных цветов".Продал без сожаления.Вы удивитесь, но взял себе FUJI S5Pro и как не странно доволен ее 6 Мп и радуюсь прекрасной картинке.А детская болезнь рассматривания фоток при большом увеличении в поисках "резкости" уже прошла.
  • Pros: Эргономика. Скорость вывода изображения на экран при посмотре на камере.Скорострельность.Рабочее ISO до 1600
  • Cons: НЕТ у этой матрицы ДД. "Пластилиновые цвета"
