At CES 2014, Nikon has announced the update to its entry-level SLR in the form of the D3300. While the body configuration hasn't changed all that much, the internals have had a significant overhaul to bring it into line with a range of other Nikon models.
Key to this is the 24-megapixel sensor, without an anti-aliasing filter. As we've seen previously, removing this filter usually ensures sharper photos. Elsewhere, the D3300 gets 1080/60p video and the same 11-point AF system as the D3200. Unfortunately, there is no Wi-Fi built in to the camera — for that you will need to buy an extra dongle in order to have that connectivity. Continuous shooting speed gets a boost to 5fps.
The D3300 will come in a kit configuration with a new 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 VR II lens. Nikon also announced the avaiability of a new 35mm f/1.8 G series lens for FX cameras (full-frame).
The D3300 will be available from February 6 with pricing at dealer discretion.
