Gray market camera

  • Summary: The camera unfortunately does not come with a US warranty. It is a gray market camera and I believe this should have been disclosed upfront.

possible help for the dreaded ERR message

Donna T Gustin, Amazon
16 December 2013
  • Summary: I've been using this thing for years. I'm a professional wedding photographer, and it's a workhorse and I abuse it. It's taken a beating, but it does the trick. Yes, there are better cameras out there, but a camera is only a tool, the user is the artist. I'm writing this review specifically to address a possible solution if you are have an ERR code pop up and think its life is over. Try switching modes.

User Review

talmy, DP Review
11 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Not too much I can say that hasn't been said before. The shooting banks are implemented awkwardly. Luckily I only use two basic setups, one for landscapes and another for wildlife. I wish Nikon would include GPS in the camera. The self-cleaning sensor has worked well -- after two years I've only just cleaned it manually the first time.

D300S - seriously

Jay, B&H Photo
5 May 2012
  • Excerpt: It was time to upgrade from my D70. I considered waiting for the D400, but decided that the probable considerably larger raw file size that the D400 will have, that I don't really need, I would go for the D300S now. It is definitely a serious camera. I think it will serve me well, as the D70 did.
  • Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Dislike video activation

This just what I wanted

SB, B&H Photo
14 October 2011
  • Excerpt: So far I am very pleased with this camera. Coming from a D80 this is a big step up. I mostly take photos of birds and the small, quick ones are difficult to get in forcus. With this camera I get quick, precise focusing.
  • Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD

Another quality Nikon camera

Lovre57, B&H Photo
25 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Have been operating the D300 for 4 years and has been a very reliable, rugged camera with pro applications. This D300s is very similar to the D300 but video and sd card added. So far this camera is meeting and exceeding my expectipns. I really recommend this camera for pro applications and less expensive then d700 which is a fine camera too.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet

Why wouldnt you wnat a D300s ?

R Barnes 13, B&H Photo
18 July 2011
  • Excerpt: I shoot about 30 weddings a year as well as sports for a Philadelphia based Yearbook company. I need a fast camera, good focus, easy to use . It's design is comfortable, it;s menu simple and feels balanced and care free allowing me more time to shoot and not worry about the camera. My only regret is the slow focus of the video feature. Im sure in time my days of focusing manually in the 70s/80s will come back to me and Ill enjoy manual focus as much as manual metering.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO
