Nikon D3300 Digital Camera Reference Manual

Taking snapshots with a smartphone is convenient, but are those photos good enough for preserving precious moments? The D3300′s new EXPEED 4 lets you shoot at high speeds up to 5 frames per second, shoot in low light with high ISO sensitivity, create high-resolution panoramas and much more. Your 24.2-megapixel photos and 1080p Full HD videos will be so impressive, so rich with detail and color – so lifelike – they’ll bring back the feelings of the moments they capture.
