Product information

A brilliant way to shoot unforgettable high-definition photos and movies, this small and lightweight 24.2-megapixel D-SLR is powerful, comfortable to carry around, and incredibly simple to operate. The large image sensor captures the finest details and superior low-light performance frees you to shoot crystal-clear images in low light.

24.2MP CMOS sensor
Specifically designed without an optical low-pass filter (OLPF), the D3300’s image sensor makes the most of its 24.2-megapixel resolution to sharply capture even the finest textures and render images with incredibly crisp detail.

Full HD video
Use the camera’s D-Movie function to make movies you’ll be proud of. You can record sharp Full HD (1080p) video clips in any light at frame rates up to 50p/60p with continuous autofocus, meaning you get smooth recordings of even fast-moving action, plus a remarkable level of sharpness and clarity.

LCD screen & optical viewfinder
As easy to shoot with as a compact camera or smartphone by using the large 3-inch LCD monitor to capture photos and movies. For perfectly framed portraits and long shots, there’s the optical viewfinder.

Fast autofocus
An 11-point autofocus system with a cross-type sensor in the centre will quickly lock onto your subject and keep it in sharp focus whether it’s off-centre, moving fast, or it’s completely unpredictable.

Special effects
With 13 different effects like panorama and colour pop to choose from, the D3300 makes it easy to add a touch of artistry to your photos and movies. Simply select Effects Mode and choose the option you want to apply before shooting.

Straightforward control
Access D-Movie and Live View via dedicated one-touch buttons. Use the i button on the back of the camera to bypass the camera’s main menu and quickly change settings while you shoot. When shooting with the viewfinder, you can choose between a classic interface and a graphic interface that animates settings, so it’s easier to see what you’re doing.

Lenses & Cases
One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless. Click here to browse our selection.

Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect 1st SLR Being very new to the SLR game I was recommended this camera by a friend as a great starter SLR. It has loads of features to help with quick and easy of the settings for specific uses, i.e. sunsets, flowing water. I added another lens (55-200mm) which is perfect for taking wildlife shots and also the Nikon lenses are very reasonably priced. It's so easy to use I am still buzzing with confidence about my strong picture taking game that I don't think it will be long before I can give up the day job and travel the world taking pictures professionally for maybe National Geographic. One day I will maybe wake up to reality. This really is a great, fun camera and very easy to use. 03 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent camera Really well built, light weight yet solid. 24.2MP produces incredibly clear pictures and gives you the option of cropping into finer details of the photo without losing quality. Smooth and easy to use. The guide mode is also great for teaching beginners the technical side of taking a good photo in various situations. An all round amazing camera, couldn't be happier with my choice. And very good value for money too! 11 September 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by came with a c=scratch on the screen I bought it after seeing reviews on JL and Which. I thought it was good DSLR camera for the starters but I am very disappointed. It was delivered late to me and then the back screen is having a small scratch as the camera, when packed did not have a plastic cover on it. Tried customer service , they asked me to go to store and get it checked. The functions are very confusing , and not great shots on individual mode. I think my hard earned money has gone for toss 29 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality camera for the price Bought this camera just before going on holiday to Ireland. Being an amateur photographer this was my first purchase of a DSLR camera. Although I have still not used all of its facilities I am very pleased with the quality of the photographs taken so far. Having 24mp allows for cropping and other photo editing manipulations whilst retaining resolution. The provided 18-55mm lens, with auto focus and vibration reduction, is sufficient for my needs at present. I also like the facility to collapse it during storage. 28 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic starter DSLR This is a great product for anyone starting in the world of digital SLR photography. I had John Lewis tokens so that was what encouraged me to buy from there. There are other deals online, worth looking at. John Lewis don't specify, but the lens provided with the camera is actually the VRII lens, so an improvement on the VR. 29 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect first SLR Easy to use, not too heavy and great photos. Still learning the functions but we were able to start shooting once we'd figured out the Auto mode without the flash. 27 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nikon 3300 I bought this camera after much research. I wanted a dslr light enough to carry on back packing holidays in Australia etc, and this fitted the bill, with good online reviews. 01 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very impressed The camera was well packaged and came with a neck strap, a battery, charger, USB cable and another cable (HDMI maybe?). I also ordered the 70-300mm lens (which is expensive but worth the investment...much better than the 55-300mm lens)...and that came with a protective pouch and a quality lens hood. Am CHUFFED. Well done John Lewis. Trust worthy as always. 02 March 2015
