  • 12.3 MP Digital SLR
  • 23.6 x 15.8mm CMOS Image Sensor
  • Startup of 130 milliseconds
  • 3-in. TFT LCD
  • High-speed performance: shoots as fast as 7 frames per second with Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL3e (included), and up to 8 frames per second when using the optional Multi-Power Battery Pack MB-D10 and Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL4a
  • Offers a rapid startup time of approximately 130 milliseconds and an amazingly short shutter release time lag of only 49 milliseconds
  • Refined D-Movie: function benefits from a number of functional and technological advancements, including an external stereo microphone input enabling high-fidelity audio, plus in-camera movie editing, allowing clips to be trimmed.
  • In Tripod mode, the D300S features contrast-detect AF, which provides another means of enhancing the dramatic impact of HD video by taking advantage of the wide selection of finest-quality NIKKOR interchangeable lenses from ultra-wide-angle and fisheye to super-telephoto for incredibly sharp results.
  • Picture Control adjustment options lets the user modify the tone and colour of HD video clips with remarkable ease
  • AF system with high-density 51-point AF: Multi CAM 3500DX AF sensor module provides an exceptionally wide area of AF coverage. With 51 AF points densely positioned across the frame, it's designed to capture the subject accurately, even when its movement is unpredictable. Moreover, it utilizes 15 powerful cross-type sensors in the centre of the frame to give the user the ultimate in detection performance with any AF NIKKOR lens of f/5.6 or faster. The 51 AF points are employed in various focus area modes, according to subject conditions.
  • Single-point AF mode allows the user to choose a single AF point from among the 51 and in Dynamic-area AF mode, the user can select from nine, 21 or 51 AF points.
  • The 51-point option offers 3D-tracking mode, which automatically shifts the focus point to match the subject's movements.
  • Auto-area AF mode specializes in focusing on people, automatically detecting and prioritizing skin tones with all 51 points
  • Large, bright viewfinder with approximately 100 per-cent frame coverage: eye-level pentaprism with approximately 100 per-cent frame coverage and approximately 0.94x magnification. The large, bright viewfinder makes for easier, more accurate composition.
  • DX-format CMOS image sensor: employs Nikon's renowned DX-format CMOS image sensor that provides 12.3 effective megapixels.
  • It delivers extraordinary image quality throughout a wide ISO sensitivity range of ISO 200 to ISO 3200 with low noise.
  • In addition, Lo 1 for ISO 100 equivalent and Hi 1 for ISO 6400 equivalent are also available.
  • Initial image- capture data is quickly and accurately transferred using 14-bit integrated A/D conversion.
  • All successive internal processing is then handled at full 16 bits.
  • The resulting outputs reveal breathtaking details and remarkably smooth tonal gradations.
  • Micro lens technology is also effective for reducing lateral chromatic aberration
  • EXPEED advanced digital image processing system technologies: utilizes an accumulation of sophisticated Nikon intelligence and technologies to ensure impeccable quality for both still images and movies, while also achieving high-speed processing and low power consumption
  • Scene Recognition System makes the most of the 1,005-pixel RGB sensor: intelligent and exclusive light metering sensor applications have undergone a refining process that has led to a breakthrough technology, the Scene Recognition System, which uses precise colour and brightness information from the 1,005-pixel RGB sensor to push accuracy levels for autofocus, auto exposure, i-TTL flash control and auto white balance to an unprecedented level.
  • And in playback mode, the added Face Detection System lets the user instantly zoom in on a human face in the high resolution, 920k-dot LCD monitor
  • Dual card slots for CF/SD memory cards: enabling the simultaneous use of both CompactFlash (Type I compatible only) and SD memory cards and allowing photographers to designate the primary recording slot.
  • For the slot designated as secondary, photographers can select from three recording methods: "Overflow" recording lets the user automatically use the memory capacity of the secondary card when the primary card is full; "Backup" recording stores the same images on both cards; and "RAW primary, JPEG secondary" recording lets the user record RAW data and JPEG data separately to each card.
  • The user can also copy images between the two memory cards.
  • And when shooting D-Movie clips, it allows the user to select the slot containing the card with the most available capacity
  • Engineered durability: Tested on fully assembled cameras, the shutter mechanism assembly has been proven beyond 150,000 cycles under demanding conditions. The ruggedly constructed D300S employs a strong yet lightweight magnesium alloy for its exterior cover, chassis and mirror box, as well as for the cover of the optional Multi-Power Battery Pack MB-D10.
  • The camera also offers comprehensive countermeasures at key points to combat invasive moisture and dust
  • Easy-to-access Live View mode: activated by pressing the dedicated Live View button, makes it easy to shoot while composing on the LCD monitor.
  • In Handheld mode, which allows the user to recompose the frame prior to actual shooting, TTL phase detection AF using 51 AF points is activated.
  • Tripod mode is designed for precise focus accuracy with still subjects.
  • It allows contrast-detect AF on a desired point within a frame
  • Quiet Shutter-release mode for nonintrusive shooting: Photographers can opt to substantially reduce the camera's mirror-down sound during shooting by selecting "Q" on the release mode dial.
  • This is particularly useful when shooting in restrictive conditions such as movie sets, courtrooms or photographing wildlife
  • Active D-Lighting for smooth tone reproduction in high-contrast lighting: By localizing tone control, Active D-Lighting (ADL) accurately retains the details in shadows and highlighted areas that are often lost in high-contrast lighting situations.
  • Simply choose the appropriate setting?auto, extra high, high, normal, low or off?prior to shooting.
  • For further options that will help the user achieve their desired tone, the D300S also allows the user to bracket their pictures with varying strength levels, for up to five frames, perfect for difficult lighting situations or when the user doesn't have the time or experience to select just one ADL setting
  • Picture Control: enables the user to create the pictures they envision, quickly and easily, by making specific selections and adjustments to image sharpening, contrast, brightness, saturation and hue.
  • And with other Picture Control-compatible cameras, as long as the settings are the same, users are able to obtain the same picture tone. D300S offers four preset Picture Control options: Standard, Neutral, Vivid and Monochrome. Users can also download two additional presets, Portrait and Landscape, from the Nikon website
  • Image Sensor Cleaning: Vibrations are applied at four different resonant frequencies, each time the camera is turned on and off, to automatically remove dust from the optical low-pass filter in front of the image sensor.
  • This function can also be activated on demand.
  • Built-in flash with 16mm lens coverage: With a guide number of approximately 17m (ISO 200, 20°C) and 16mm lens coverage?wider than the 18mm of the D300?the high-performance built-in flash supports Nikon's original i-TTL flash control that evaluates flash exposure with greater precision for exceptional results. Compatible with the Nikon Creative Lighting System, the built-in flash controls up to two groups of unlimited remote units as a master/commander in Advanced Wireless Lighting
  • Multi-Power Battery Pack MB-D10 (optional): supports three types of batteries: R6/AA-size batteries, along with Nikon's Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL3e and Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL4a.
  • When Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL3e is used for the camera body, together with Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL4a (optional Battery Chamber Cover BL-3 required) for the Multi-Power Battery Pack MB-D10, it combines added stability with extended shooting of up to approx. 2,950 shots per charge and enables faster high-speed continuous shooting at up to 8 fps
  • Virtual Horizon available in Set-up Menu and Live View shooting
  • 3-inch, 920,000 dot high-resolution LCD monitor
