Nikon D300s

PC Magazine
4 April 2010
  • Conclusion: The 12.3-megapixel Nikon D300s is a solid D-SLR and a nice speed upgrade if you already own Nikon lenses. But for the same price, Canon offers larger 18-megapixel images and more comprehensive HD-video-capture options with its EOS 7D.
  • Pros: Top-notch image quality. Fast, 7-frames-per-second image capture. Extremely accurate 51-point autofocus system. HD video capture.
  • Cons: Low-ISO images are softer than those from competing cameras. Limited HD video recording options.

  • Summary: A relatively minor upgrade to one of the defining cameras of the semi-pro sector adds a useful HD video mode and a wealth of minor improvements that improve the already excellent handling. Although the D300S has stronger competition than its predecessor, it still manages to impress, as do the images it produces.
  • Pros: Highly competitive image quality at all ISO settings, Excellent high ISO performance with low noise and good levels of detail, Highly configurable Auto ISO function (can set maximum ISO and minimum shutter speed), 7 frames per second continuous shooting speed (8 with battery grip), Makes good use of its dual media card slots, Sophisticated AF system with effective subject tracking, Excellent build quality with magnesium body and environmental sealing, Good ergonomics,...
  • Cons: Unreliable white balance under artificial lighting, Slight tendency to overexpose in contrasty conditions, Rolling shutter effect when shooting video, Occasional 'grain' in blue skies, even at base ISO, Contrast detection AF is slow (as it is on all DSLRs), Internal microphone readily records lens noise, No liveview histogram

  • Summary: This is very close to what a professional photographer will use. In fact from my very amateur status it was rather frightening to review, mainly because most of the time I was hitting – if not passing – my knowledge levels.

  • Conclusion: The real problem with the D300s, as it is a very impressive camera, is that the extra features really don’t justify the extra cash over the D300.

Nikon D300S

1 October 2009
  • Summary: Nikon's flagship DX-format DSLR adds D-Movie capabilities and dual card slots to the feature set of the D300.Depending on how you rate the addition of video capture and dual card slots, Nikon's D300S can be rated as either a major or minor upgrade to the D300. Aside from these features, little has changed from the earlier model.
  • Pros: You want a solidly-built DSLR camera with a weather-resistant body and a professional-standard controls and functions., You want a Live View system plus the ability to shoot HD video clips, and are prepared to accept the limitations in the Movie mode., You have a selection of DX-Nikkor lenses.
  • Cons: You're simply upgrading from the D300, unless the new features are essential., You require fast autofocusing and focus tracking in Live View mode., You want body-integrated image stabilisation., You plan to make extensive use of the video recording facilities. (The relatively poor audio quality of this camera will soon disappoint unless you invest in an external microphone.) IMATEST GRAPHS JPEG images

Nikon D300s

  • Excerpt: S comme super ? C'est ce qu'on pourrait dire de ce Nikon D300s , donc, qui vient remplacer le Nikon D300 , appareil expert de qualité, au point que de nombreux pro s'en servait allègrement comme second boîtier pour ne pas dire comme principal boîtier. Notre avis n'aura donc pas changé quand à la qualité de ce reflex qui a marqué par sa finition très solide (tropicalisée) d'une part, et sa qualité d'image pour un reflex aps-c, d'autre part.
  • Pros: Construction - Finition, Mode rafale, Qualité d'image
