  • Cons: i don't see the point of the neck strap, its completely useless sometimes i even feel that the camera would fall if its let entirely on the neck strap's support.

  • Summary: I recently bought a Nikon D300s as a second camera for wildlife and sport. I Chose the S version as I anded dual memory cards and the video facility. I have used Fuji Pro SLR cameras since 2003; I have some observations on the D300s that may be of value. I have spent three months using the D300 Camera now with 7000+ shots. The D300 is a fast performer with a superb focusing system and build quality.
  • Pros: Build Quality, D300s is well built with metal body and weather sealing. The MB10 grip is a big improvement on the D200 grip for; however removing the grip to get aces to the battery is inconvenient., Features, The Big difference with the D300 is the dual memory Cards, Live view and Video. The D300 has a LV button and the video is very easy to operate., Video, I've been happy with the video output; its very controllable and high enough quality for occasional use. I've ...
  • Cons: Usability, The D300 is complex; and not a beginners camera. I struggled at first with the settings to get decent colour and contrast with the D300S., Colour, The D300s isn’t bad; but when compared with my Fuji S5 the colours can look muddy and over contrasty especially at high ISOs You get impact for sport but it lacks smoothness for portraits; that can look look harsh., Dynamic and Tonal Range, The D300 does not cope so well as the Fuji S5 with difficult light.

A word of warning if you're buying a D300S for its video capabilities

Lon J. Seidman "lon@ lon.tv", Amazon
31 August 2009
  • Summary: Length:: 0:55 Mins This is a tough review because this camera is so excellent as a still device and easily earns five stars. However, if you're currently a D300 owner looking to upgrade for this camera's new video capabilities you will be disappointed. The unfortunate 'rolling shutter' problem that plagues the video feature on the D90 exists on the new D300s too.

Showing it's age - The double edged DX blade!

Ralph, Amazon

  • Summary: If you're a DX user tossing up between a D300s and a D7000 then this review might be of interest at the time of writing. After initially running in to autofocus issues with the D7000 i decided to try out a D300s, the first thing you notice with this camera is the build quality, it feels good and solid in the hand, has plenty of manual controls. The 51-point AF system is bang on, even in low light, very impressive but unfortunately thats pretty much where it ends.

  • Excerpt: Механикой, оптикой, эргономикой, фокусировкой - доволен. Супер-машина. Одно плохо - шумы на ISO 200 и цвета отвратные. Особенно в тени. Снимаю параллельно на D50 и D300s. Если рядом не ставить - разница слабо заметна. Если сравнить вплотную - то D50 по качеству на ISO 200 бьет D300s по самую диафрагму. Никакие профили, никакое шаманство с Фотошопом, Nx, LR не дают той чистоты и прозрачности цвета, что дает D50.
  • Pros: Описаны ниже. Эргономика, механика, фокусировка, ISO - отлично
  • Cons: Практически нет. Нюансы не в счет, Oт ISO 800 и выше теряется детализация. Трава в тени превращается в кашу.

  • Excerpt: из-за шумной матрицы хочу его продать нафиг, даже какое-то время думал, что это заводской брак.
  • Pros: красивый,.
  • Cons: Мне эта камера показалась очень шумной. на исо 800 шум вообще не приемлем, на 400 шумит на порядок сильнее чем мой старенький никон д50, снимать на экстремально длинной выдержке (более 30 минут) нельзя в принципе, шум перекрывает все детали кадра. никон д50 по показателям шума превосходит этот проф фотоаппарат на голову., в режиме фидео не работает автоокус.

knackscharf und rauscharm?

Sandra Sramek "zonki", Amazon
4 October 2012
  • Summary: nach den vielen positiven Rezensionen habe ich mir die Cam bestellt, kombiniert mit dem Nikkor 70-200 ED VRII und hab mich schon extrem gefreut auf die knackscharfen und rauscharmen Bilder.. bisher hab ich mit der D200 fotografiert und da war das Rauschverhalten im höheren ISO-Bereich immer ziemlich mässig. Nach den ersten drei Tagen muß ich jedoch sagen, dass von der Schärfe her deutliche Schwächen mit dem o.g.
