Product Highlights

  • The Nikon d3300 offers dozens of special effects, ranging from selective color and color sketch to high/low keys and a toy camera effect.
  • High-speed processing ensures that the processing engine, EXPEED 4, provides you with everything you need to create beautiful, crisp raw images with which to work your post-production magic.
  • Image retouching here refers to some 20 options, from resizing and quick retouching to miniature effects and movie editing.

The Nikon d3300 may not be a mobile photography studio—you’d need a set of wheels for that—but it just may be the next best thing.

 



Learn about the NIKON D3300 W/18-55 VR II LENS - BLK

When you purchase a camera/lens combination, you expect a lot of features. And who could blame you? Certainly not us at . But if your expectations go above and beyond the vague “a lot of features,” then we’ve got precisely what the doctor ordered: the NIKON D3300 W/18-55 VR II LENS – BLK. Not only is this lens/camera combination a complete photography studio in and of itself, but it has the image retouching and special effects necessary to lift it into something else entirely. In short, the Nikon d3300 is everything you’ve been looking for.

Don’t believe us? Let’s go through the litany of astounding and highly creative features available here:



  • Special effects. Yeah, we at like to start with the sexy stuff. But admit it: Selective color, color sketch, miniature effects, night vision, silhouette effects, high/low keys, toy camera effects, HDR painting effects, a super vivid effect, pop, photo illustration, easy panorama—it’s just too much to not be excited about. And, yes, it’s all contained in the Nikon d3300, so don’t worry about having to buy some add-on gizmos or extensions that contribute to the price. What you see is what you get with this combination. (Note: Compare it to the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens if you want some more context for just how many special effects are available here.)
  • Spectacular image quality. Courtesy of a few technical specifications, from an effective pixel count of 24.2-million pixels to the Nikon DX-format CMOS censor with no optical low-pass filter. There’s a lot that goes into image processing in this Nikon, including the innovative EXPEED 4 image-processing engine. Better image quality, consistent image quality, and support for high image sensitivity—that’s a combination that even professionals can enjoy.
  • Image-retouch options. Remember how when it comes to the Nikon d3300, said that it’s a virtual photography studio? We’re not far off. The retouching options here are abundant, including D-lighting, Red-eye correction, trim, monochrome, filter effects, color balance, image overly, resizing, quick retouching, straightening, distortion control, fisheye—the list goes on and on and on. Heck, we can’t even list them all here without getting overly verbose. Just take our word for it: you can do a heck of a lot of correcting simply by using your Nikon.
  • Intuitive navigation. If all these features sound like a lot to handle, don’t be intimidated, There’s a button that gives you instant access to these functions, allowing you to quickly make any necessary changes without shuffling through a thousand digital buttons.
  • A viewfinder that delivers the goods, including a 0.85x magnification factor with a frame coverage of about 95%, giving you all that you need to ensure that your next shot is going to be a good one.

Whether you’re going with a body only 3300 or the full package, you really can’t go wrong here. The NIKON D3300 W/18-55 VR II LENS – BLK contains an astounding array of features and options that will whet the appetite of even the most seasoned photographers.
