Nikon D300s Digital SLR

 

Nikon has updated the D300 with HD video and a second card slot

While the second card slot and slightly improved performance are welcome upgrades to an already brilliant camera, the new video recording mode and live monitor view are a bit disappointing compared to other premium models. The D300s is still utterly...

Nikon D300s DSLR camera

 

The D300s updates the D300 with some major and not so major features. Obvious among them is the addition of a 720p movie-shooting mode with contrast detection AF while shooting in Tripod movie mode. Hand-held movie shooting the focusing is fixed or you...

Excellent image quality and ergonomics, menu system and info panel, good control and custom modes, HD movie mode

Price: the extra cost for the new goodies - even the HD movies - might not seem worth paying for the upgrade, detail loss in shadow areas

And so the D300s marks a neat upgrade to the D300, but the £1499.99 price tag might mean you think twice about upgrading. Because, if you already own the D300, then unless you desperately need the HD video capability, the slightly improved frame rate...

The D300S combines some interesting new features with Nikon's traditional excellence at this price.

Nikon D300s review

 

With the D300s, Nikon has taken a good camera and made it better. Although there are few ‘new' features, those that have been added, like a video mode and quiet shutter release, are of value, and make the D300s a more convincing option when viewed in a...

Nikon D300s Review

 

Daniel Lezano tests Nikon's D300s. Can it keep up with its rivals?

While the lack of any increase in pixel count may disappoint some, using this as a basis to dismiss the D300s would be unfair, as quality shouldn't be based on the pixel count alone. The Nikon D300s is a well-rounded camera and more than capable of...

Nikon D300s review

 

The fact that the D300s is so similar to the original D300 really is testament to how highly specified the original model already was. Many of the changes Nikon has made seem more as justifications for bringing out a new model, rather than the result...

Xacti DMX-HD700… a Xacti DMX-CG65 with HD 720p ?

 

The little Xacti DMX-HD700 is as fun to use as the CG65, but now with the HD720p! In the end, it really feels like a GC65 with an “HD option.” I think Sanyo should have used a totally new approach for the high definition, especially when it comes to...

compact, fun to use, HD makes it more than just a “web-buzz-cam”, macro mode, manual focus, photo mode

the lens is not so good for HD, poor auto focus in HD, no more mini-USB port, some parts could have been constructed with better materials

The Nikon D300s is very responsive and gives a feeling of confidence that it can tackle any challenges you may face as a serious photographer.

Nikon D300s DSLR

 

A superb stills camera, but the video capability appears somewhat limited now.

There's something about the shutter sound of Nikons, they just seem more positive and tighter. This, combined with the magnesium alloy chassis, makes the D300s reminiscent of some of those tanks like the F3, from a bygone film age. Indeed, the D300s is...
