Nikon D3300 DSLR

CES 2014, Las Vegas: Nikon is freshening up its entry-level DSLR line with the launch of the D3300. While the sensor and basic specs stay the same, Nikon went ahead and put its new Expeed IIII image processor in it.

The D3300 also skips the optical low pass filter, which is an increasingly popular thing to do at the moment.

The D3300 features the same 24.2MP APS-C-sized CMOS sensor as its predecessor. Sensor technology has obviously come a long way, and at this point, it seems camera manufactures would rather focus fire on improving processing engines, to get the absolute most out of their sensors, rather than cramming more megapixels in there.

Standout Spec: The 24.2-megapixel resolution sticks around, but now it uses the top-end EXPEED 4 image processor to give it better low-light performance
