Summary: The rating on the camera was below the actual condition of the camera. However for the price, I overlooked that, seeing how that the performance of the camera is excellent. Personally, after shooting the Nikon D7000, I prefer the D300 and the D300s as far as picture quality. The sharpness of the picture comparably is ok, but, the depth of the image is where the D300/D300s excels. I am not talking about depth of field.
Excerpt: This camera is great for any amateur or semi-professional photographer. It has all the features and easiness of a pont and shoot but the advanced settings of a pro camera. I'd reccomend it to anyone looking to get into photography.
Excerpt: "I got my full armor on, my head to the sky, I'm going into battle with arms up high, and I'm through playing games, you can see it in my eyes, and you can go and tell everybody I'm a rida, and I ain't turnin back!" What does that quote by the amazingly talented Christian Rapper Thi'sl have to do with a Nikon? Well, it describes my position as a Nikon head for life!
Excerpt: As a Investigator at a law enforcement agency in my area, I use this camera often. It is important that the pictures I take give a true and accurate view of the scene I am looking at. THis ensures that the Jury and Judge can see what I was seeing on a crime scene. Our department invested in these cameras a couple years ago. We have a normal Nikon lense and a Nikon telephoto lense with our cameras.
In a class of it's own. Well worth the investment.

Summary: Nikon D300 is an excellent choice for the camera buff that is looking for a little more than just the basic Digital SLR. I purchased the D300 after having been a D90 owner for more than two (2) years. The camera build is awesome and reminds me of my F3, F4s, F100, FM, FA, and other legacy Nikon film cameras. I am a guy, with larger hands and to me, it feels like a real camera from the past.
Let's just say my canon-friends liked my new baby :)

Summary: I recently upgraded from a D3100 and had to read the manual in order to find out how to work the camera. After reading I got the hang of using it, quickly, and used it for a concert that I went to. My friends loved my photo and I'm so thankful that the seller sent it to me so quickly. The only downside is that this camera doesn't really have it's own "movie" section. I looked through tutorials on how to take numerous still frames that turn into videos.
Summary: The Nikon d300 is an excellent camera! It has wonderful specs and never fails to produce wonderful and clear pictures. It is a bit of a heavy camera, but being so heavy ensures that the camera will not break easily. It is a heavy duty camera with so many buttons that buying a manual or at least reading through some sort of instructions will be beneficial. The price of this camera is is a bit of stretch to how much you would be willing to pay for a camera.
