Nikon announces the D3300 DSLR and teases the unannounced D4S


Nikon had a slew of bulletins on the CES 2014 – initially, it’s the logo new D3300 DSLR, but in addition the corporate printed it might exhibit their but unannounced D4S DSLR in Las Vegas.

Together with the D3300, Nikon additionally introduced its new collapsible 18-fifty five VR equipment lens and the 2d era of the entire-body 35mm 1.8G lens.

The spotlight characteristic of the 24.2MP Nikon D3300 is the shortage of optical low move filter – very similar to on Nikon’s dearer camera equipment. The huge ISO vary of a hundred-12,800 (expandable as much as 25,600), the eleven-level autofocus machine, the 5fps steady capturing mode and the FullHD video seize with full-time autofocus would make it a flexible entry-stage camera for aspiring photographers (and why no longer soccer mothers, too). The Nikon D3300 can be Nikon’s first DSLR camera to % a neatly past due Straightforward Panorama Mode.

The Nikon D3300 is kitted with the brand new AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/three.5-5.6G VR II lens, which has a spanking new collapsible design, taking into account a extra compact dimension when now not in use. The lens has the identical Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor and 3x zoom magnification (27 to eighty two.5mm), however its VR picture stabilization is rated to make amends for as much as 4 stops versus three stops within the earlier technology and its retractable design makes for “a camera package deal virtually 30% smaller and 25% lighter”. It’s some 30mm shorter than the earlier technology, it has a 5mm shorter diameter and it’s 70g lighter.

The opposite new addition to the Nikon portfolio is the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G lens. It’s the brand new technology of the favored 35mm lens for full-body (or as Nikon calls them FX structure) cameras. In fact, house owners of DX layout cameras can use it too, however the ensuing focal size of 52mm (in 35mm phrases) is quite unorthodox and too lengthy for correct side road pictures (although I do know some guys that swear by using the sort of focal size for candid graphics).

The AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.eight is essentially the most contemporary of Nikon’s primes to be up to date to a G model, following the extremely a hit AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8G, 50mm f/1.8G and 85mm f/1.8G lenses. The lens 35mm f/1.8G lens has a Silent Wave autofocusing motor and can center of attention from as shut as 25cm.

Nikon additionally used the chance to tease its upcoming excessive-finish DSLR variation, the Nikon D4S. The camera remains to be in building and it’s no longer even formally introduced but, however Nikon shall be showcasing it on the CES 2014 showroom flooring.

The brand new Nikon D4S will construct upon the extremely revered Nikon D4 and can have a brand new picture-processing engine and extra evolved autofocusing efficiency. There are not any reliable press photographs of the D4S but.
