Steve from Steve’s Digicam reviewed the old favorurite Nikon D300 and as expected the camera impressed with its performance. Weighing around y 3 - 3 1/2 pounds, the D300 has a solid body, which will appease the professional photographer. Features like; a self cleaning sensor, Scene Recognition metering system, ISO speeds up to 6400 with boost (in 1/3 stop increments), new image processing algorithm make the D300 a force to reckon with.
The Nikon D300 is not for everyone and can be a little over-whelming for first time DSLR users. Built-in flash was effective and D300 offers five flash sync modes: Front-Curtain Sync (normal sync), Red-Eye Reduction, Red-Eye Reduction with Slow Sync, Slow Sync and Rear-Curtain Sync.
Nikon's new D300 further raises the bar in the enthusiasts’ dSLR category. Offering a wealth of features, plenty of customization options, 12.3 megapixels of resolution, upgraded 51-point Autofocus System, a fast frame rate (when using a recommend 266x CF card) and excellent image quality, this model represents Nikon's best effort so far in this market niche.
