Fantastic camera. Built like a tank, great image quality, fits in your hand smoothly with easily accessible controls. Not the highest megapixel count, but probably one of the best used megapixels in the market. Problems: I'm a Mac user, so I'm still struggling with some compatibility issues regarding RAW processing, Capture NX2 operation (under Snow Leopard it simply doesn't open any file at all). This is a brand new camera though, so I think most of these problems will be gone in the near ...

The claim that Nikon maintained the 12.3 – megapixel resolution and “improved the EXPEED system around it to give you better low-light/high ISO performance and improved overall image quality”....... Sorry Charlie, testing shows that there is in fact NO change in image quality in RAW or JPEG capture according to my tests. My method was to shoot both cameras in manual mode at ISO 1600 set to capture RAW/JPEG FINE of the same file. Using the same Nikon 17-55 2.8 G ED lens on both bodies, I ...

I bought this camera to replace my D200 and have been impressed with its build quality. As you'd expect it's construction is solid and reassuring. The controls are easy to access and it's very responsive. The AF is second to none. There's an impressive array of custom settings to get the image you want. The vewfinder is bright and clear and the added live view is an added bonus. Image quality is excellent and it's low light performance is very impressive. So far I'm very very pleased with my ...

The reason I bought the D300s was the upgraded controls to match my D700. The ease of use is great. I haven't used the video much, but it seems to be ok. I love the performance and although the high iso is not as good as the D700 it is very usable up to 3200. I also like the focus point spread on the D300s better than the d700. Dual card slots are nice too. Build quality is second to none and I love that I can use all my Nikon lenses with it. Problems: None yet and I don't expect to. I have ...

The best in every respect. No camera for beginners, however. A real complex tool and I can hardly imagin what should be improved in coming models. Top AF, top noise performance, top jpg out of the box, 12 MP by far enough and thanks Nikon for giving us the best picture quality and not more MP! Bought it with the 18-200 VR II, which is also great for its range. You can configure the D300s perfectly for your needs. I really think if I need to shoot RAW any longer. Had other brands before and ...

Simply the best crop camera actually available. Low noise, fast FPS, fantastic and precise AF plus superb flash system.

The D300s is a wonderful camera which takes great pictures and is progressively becoming easier to use. I still have a lot to learn. While the body with lens is heavy, I find it steadier handheld than a lighter camera. I have the brand-new Nikkor 18-200mm VRII telephoto zoom lens which produces exceptionally clear images even in JPEG format. Problems: I am still at wit's end trying to download the latest RAW update for CS4/Windows necessary for the D300s but have been unsuccessful. I ...
