Product information
The Nikon D3300 DSLR Camera with 18 - 55 mm Zoom Lens allows you to capture special and amazing moments in glorious high quality.

Unforgettable memories, unforgettable photos

Small and lightweight, there's nothing insubstantial about 24.2 megapixels of superb resolution. A large 23.5 x 15.6 mm CMOS sensor displays remarkable light sensitivity, rendering details with amazing sharpness and performing well in low light with an ISO range of 100 to 12800 (extendable to 25600 equivalent).

Your images will be packed with fine textures and natural colours to really capture the atmosphere of whichever situation you find yourself in, thanks to the camera's freedom from an optical low-pass filter (OLPF).

Capture clear, colourful photographs in all manner of lighting conditions as the camera's EXPEED 4 image processor goes to work, delivering gorgeous photos every time. This fast and powerful image tool allows the camera to work at high speeds and sports enhanced noise reduction capabilities.

Includes a versatile zoom lens

You'll be able to get shooting right out of the box, since the Nikon D3300 DSLR comes with a Type G AF-S DX 18 – 55 mm VR II zoom lens.

This versatile tool covers essential zoom ranges to make photographing everything from scenery to portraits that much easier. Achieve pleasing depth of field effects with a maximum aperture range of f/3.5 – 5.6, and take in longer shots with a minimum aperture of f/22 – 36.

Advanced focusing mechanism

The Nikon D3300 DSLR is equipped with a razor-sharp 11-point AF system, so even if you're shooting quickly or erratically-moving subjects, the camera keeps everything in focus. A cross-type sensor in the centre quickly locks onto your subject and maintains great focus for better action shots.

With 5 fps continuous shooting abilities, the camera also lets you capture passing moments or expressions almost as they occur, so you can shoot more unique and expressive photos of animals, kids, friends or whatever you choose.

Creativity unleashed

Expand the horizons of what you want to accomplish with your photography when you shoot with the Nikon D3300. Its Guide Mode uses sample images and uncomplicated step-by-step instructions to show just how you can capture fantastic movies and photos.

Use Nikon's optional Wireless Mobile Adapter to easily upload your shots to favourite sites via smart device when you want to share your work.

There are also 13 different photo effects for you to choose from so you can easily add an artistic touch to both photos and movies you've shot. Choose Effect Mode and select the option you want to apply before clicking the shutter.

Pop brightens colours, while Easy Panorama makes it a snap to capture spectacular vistas. Toy Camera lends a cool retro effect to your images, and there are many more options available to make your photos look that much more special.

Full HD recording

You'll be able to shoot Full HD 1920 x 1080p movies with your Nikon D3300. The D-Movie function allows you to capture video footage you'll be proud to share with the world. Shoot in almost any light at frame rates up to 50p/60p to capture your moments with spine-tingling ambience.

Continuous autofocus is available in movie mode, so even fast-moving action is smoothly captured with outstanding sharpness and clarity.

View your photos

The clear viewfinder gives you a more traditional and accurate photographic view that allows you to grab perfectly-timed images.

There's also a large 3” colour LCD screen provided on the Nikon D3300 SLR that makes it so easy to shoot the best parts of a scene and monitor fast-moving subjects more effectively. View your work immediately to make sure you've got the frames you're after, and apply special effects without a hitch.

Easy camera operation

The D3300 offers dedicated one-touch buttons that allow you to access D-Movie and Live View modes. Located on the back of the camera, they let you bypass the main camera menu to swiftly adjust settings while you shoot.

When you're shooting using the viewfinder, you'll have the option of choosing a classic interface or graphic interface that animates settings. The former gives you simplicity once you're assured of what you're doing, while the latter makes it easier to follow which camera elements you're controlling.

The DSLR body weighs just 410 g, so it's easier to carry than previous models. The grip remains large and comfortable so that you can keep the camera steady as you perfectly capture those important moments.


Give yourself more creative ability and make the most of your DSLR by adding one of our impressive Nikkor lenses to your DSLR kit. The right lens is the key to achieving striking compositions. You can control all aspects of your photography to shoot subjects with more creative prowess.

Every lens is specially designed for specific types of photography. Capture your creative vision in gorgeous depth-of-field, stunning macro close-ups or a wide angle frame. Use a fast prime lens for beautiful portraits, or fit a telephoto to capture clear images of distant subjects. Take a look at our extensive range of versatile lenses - be prepared on photography adventures!

This Nikon D3300 DSLR Camera with 18 - 55 mm VR II Zoom Lens is your key to a whole new world of photographic potential.

Titchfield GB Keen amateur
Easy to use - menus & buttons straight forward.

Nice Nikon branded neck strap.

Lots of features to get your head around as a beginner.
Would of been nice to have a lense cleaning kit included, especially as they are only a few pound online to purchase.

Wifi is an added extra via an adapter, taking the SD Card out every time is becoming a slight chore.

Great as a starter DSLR, especially if you're used to the Nikon menus and settings already (I had a Nikon compact first).

Easy to use and can just point and shoot in auto mode without having to know all the ins and outs! Produces lovely pictures - I used mine at a family wedding and everyone loved the results.

Battery lasted through over 200 photos (without flash) and still some power left.
I still need to read up a bit more on using the settings most effectively as it did blur in some conditions - but this is more likely user error than a problem with the camera!

As I'm not a photographer but a snapper I find the D3300 very easy to use with very satisfying results.
