Definitely a J.Clarkson fan, that guy. Quite funny.

So Yay or Nay and Why? (1st DSLR and black version, if you watched the review).

Wanting to know what we think of the review or the camera?

As far as the review, I got to a little over 3 minutes and couldn't take any more...

As far as the camera the D3300 seems to be a great camera for the low end of the market. Sensor is good and it performs well in most situations. The D5xxx series has the benefit of a tilting screen. The D7xxx series is generally a better performer and has much better control interface for those who want to take more control over what they are doing.

I have the D7100 but also have owned a D5100, D7000 plus some of the older models such as D60 and D90. They've all been generally good cameras. But, I moved to the D7100 because it feels better in my hands and the ability to easily change settings and to see them on the LED display is great. Focus is also really good and fast.

Most people using a D3300 won't care about weather sealing - it's unlikely they will have lenses that are weather sealed anyway as the lenses would cost much more than the camera.

I don't think you can go far wrong with the Nikon range. But then a lot depends on the feel in your hands and so people need to try cameras - some will prefer Canon or micro 4/3rds etc.

In reply to a post by Aliturk:

I know, just wondered if anyone else knew exactly where! I recognised it early on.

Cheers for the input.

I do have a Nikon (L310), but am looking to make the jump from a compact to a DSLR.

This review compares the 3200 to the 3300. I suppose the 3300 would be the most up to date version of the entry level, while the 5300 or 7xxx models would be out-with my price or level of expertise. I don't have a hard budget, but I do want to consider an additional lens or two, and I think that £500 is a reasonable starter budget. I came across this as an example (D5200 in this case):

Now a kit like that with the 5200 might be better than a 3300 for all I know. I'm just browsing at present and happy to get 3xxx v 5xxx v 7xxx information (other than price).

The L310 is a great wee camera for the general stuff, but it is limited in several aspects (a lack of a proper manual mode being one example). Hence why I'm really looking to step up a little.
