Nikon D300S

We mean business. We aren’t for those who seem to think photography is all about megapixels and red eye reduction! This is what the Nikon D300 and D300S seem to say. Both these professional DSLRs are made for those for whom cameras are an investment and not a luxury. This 12.3 mp camera comes with double slots for two different types of memory cards that can be used with it, and comes with a wide range of shutter speed ratings.

Design and Functioning

Just because a camera is for serious photographers and professionals, doesn’t mean that durability and comfort cam be compromised on, right? Well, right said and Nikon too seems to agree with it. The Nikon D300S, continuing with the popularity and good reviews that the Nikon D300 got, is made of solid Magnesium alloy body and is known for fitting the hand like a glove. It uses the CMOS image sensor, which is typical of a professional camera, because it consumes less power as compared to the CCD type sensors. It offers a rather impressive range of shutter speed values – which range from a maximum of 1/8000th of a second to a minimum of 30 seconds. This camera comes with two memory card slots – one for a Compact Flash Card and another one for the normal SD/SDHC cards.


It has an Eye cup, a neck strap,  a battery charger, a body cap a lens cap ,a shoe cap and an dust cap
