Summary: Being of the old school era (film), I bought my first digital camera in 2009 a Nikon d200. It served me well, I learned alot with it. I wanted to up grade so I read up on other models and I decided on the Nikon d300. The next runner up was the Nikon d2s. I needed a rugged built camera that could handle the dirty environment of dirt track auto racing. Mud and dust are a every saturday thing to deal with.
The D -300 is among the best of the Nikon Line, and this Camera just a baby
12 February 2014
Summary: The Camera, the D-300 is a relative baby in comparison to my own and many others out there. The model and version is among the best of the Nikon line, respected even by Working Prosas a suitable backup (in some instances for some work), and will function in that capacity for me, be a backup to my workhorse D-300. It does not require a massive new hard-drive capacity as do some of the 24MP- 36MP and above (sensor sized) Cameras.
Summary: Bought the D300 to get the qualities a pro Nikon offers, and I'm loving it! I would say it was a very good deal, and I would buy it again if I had it to do over! It's heavier than the consumer models and very well built, and the weather sealing is a relief when the weather can change so quick! Lol The 12.3 MPs works well for me keeping the file size small and great for posting online!
Summary: I purchased a used D300 several months ago and while I have always been a Nikon shooter I'm still learning about some of the new features of the camera. The card is a great reference when I'm shooting an forget now to set the camera, since it's very different from my old D70.
Summary: For me the size of the camera with the addition of the battery grip make for a well balanced and easy (for me) to handle unit. I use this model with an 18-200 lens, which is an all around excellent lens. No need to be changing fixed focal length lenses in the middle of a shoot. You are able to set the camera to produce images with 300 dpi which allows for easy enlarging to 11x14 or 16x20 images for printing and framing.
