Not too much I can say that hasn't been said before. The shooting banks are implemented awkwardly. Luckily I only use two basic setups, one for landscapes and another for wildlife. I wish Nikon would include GPS in the camera. The self-cleaning sensor has worked well -- after two years I've only just cleaned it manually the first time. It's been so much nicer than my D200

I have been using a D50 for about 5 years and switched to a D300s in Nov.2010. The change was substantial and the learning curve quite steep, but now I feel comfortable with the D300s and truly enjoy the ergonomics, build quality, rich feature set, speed and image quality. Using this camera really helped me improving my photographic skills. The autofocus system required a lot of attention at first, but it works great once I got a better understanding of it. The only gripes I have with it is ...

I had the camera for almost a year now and enjoy using it since the first day. It is a very well build, solid camera. The image quality is excellent once the use and the proper configuration is learned. The camera has a huge number of parameters to set up and the factory default may not be suitable for everyone, so user configuration may be necessary. It is definitely not a camera for those who are afraid of complex cameras. Auto focus is lightening fast and accurate. The ISO noise is low ...

I borrow a friend's D300S because I am looking for an upgrade DSLR to replace my D100 which I own for 1.5 years. The D300 is very comfortable to hold and ease of use (due to the familiarity of the Nikon family). All departments including increased megapixels of the CMOS, speed of operations, focusing, larger LCD, less noise are great. It has the same great quality of image with fine detailsp Nikon quality. Problems: The problem: In MANY different camera opinion posts I notice some people posted ...

Just played with this, while deciding if I should upgrade my D200. It's pretty cool. I just wish Nikon would stop having multiple buttons and options to accomplish the same task. Slim down the camera and we will all catch on :) Does anyone know if there is a tablet (yes even iPAD) that could work with this camera, to display the images while I am taking them. I do a lot of softball pictures and it's not always easy to tell if everything is in focus.

Solid and reassuring. Fast as lightening, decent buffer capacity and the 7fps has captured things for me my D90 missed. As with my D90 I used the video to check it worked when i opened the box, never touched it since. I have a HD video cam if i want video, which is not often. This complements my D90 perfectly. Love the setting banks for the custom setting and shooting settings, the extra configurable buttons, the 9 frame bracket limit and extended Active D bracket sequence. Brk burst is also ...

Fast, strong and the best DX Nikon ever. The movie feature is not important to me. I wish a little more MP (14 at least). The high ISO reductor is very aggresive. Problems: The grip of my old D90 was better for my hand.

I found myself in some turmoil recently trying to decide if I should change from my favoured camera manufacture Canon to Nikon. The technical choice currently available between the two manufactures is truly mind blowing. If you’re like me once you have decide which camera to go for, researching it can leave you feeling over informed and even more confused over you choice. I originally started looking at the slightly older D90 which is a well received DSLR, but for me I found the body weight ...

I loved the feel of the D300S, and the photographic results, I've seen, but one thing made it a no-buy for me :-(! Problems: When looking for a DSLR I had some hands-on time with a lot of different DSLR cameras, including the D300S, and sadly found the camera made for bigger hands than mine, or my wife's - so I bought the K-x instead - not quite as capable, but good in bad lighting, and that was my premium reason for getting one in the first place - in good lighting conditions even a small ...
