Excerpt: Believe me, I've wanted to upgrade for a long while now. Nothing wrong with the camera, it's a great unit. I move to this from my D200 when it first came out, I think a lot of people did. But then I got megapixel envy and started lusting after the D700 then the D610, then the D810.
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.
Excerpt: camera was delivered hours before a trip to Alaska so I learned to use it on the run. It was easy to get to know and begin using. it's quiet, reasonably light & has great resolution. Love being able to take video as well had to wait a long time to get one in stock
Pros: Comfortable Design, Fingertip Controls, Reliable Operation, Strong Construction
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
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
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.
