CES 2014: Nikon D3300 revs up the entry-level SLR

1:33 /

Nikon brings its new entry-level SLR in line with higher-end models by removing the anti-aliasing filter and boosting its speed.

Hi, I'm Lexy Savvides at CES 2014 taking a first look at the brand new Nikon D3300. Now, this is an upgrade to Nikon's entry-level SLR line, on the outside, it looks pretty consistent with all the entry-level D3000 Star models that you've probably used to seeing. On the inside, however, Nikon has upgraded the sensor, it's now 24.2 Megapixel DX Sensor without the anti-aliasing filter so it brings into mind the cameras like the D7100 which also don't have that filter and it probably ensures that you're gonna get sharper, clearer photos like we've seen on those higher end models. Elsewhere, you're also getting a high ISO range, all the way up to 25,600 and there is a boost to the continuous shooting speed so you're now able to shoot up to 5 frames a second which is pretty impressive for an entry-level SLR. Elsewhere, you're also getting a brand new kit lens. Nikon has finally upgraded the 18 to 55. You're not getting any expansion to the upper [unk] however but it's all about the design instead now rather than just rotating zoom lens, it now actually pops out and rotates back into the camera body fully so it's nice and flush and a lot smaller than the previous kit lens. All up, the package is gonna cost you $649 in the U.S. I'm Lexy Savvides of CNET and this has been a first look at the Nikon D3300.
