If you want a great camera under $550, then you’ve come to the right place. Nikon D3300 costs only $529 and still manages to show some impressive performance for this price. Nikon D3300 is a Single-lens reflex digital camera equipped with a 23.5 x 15.6 mm CMOS sensor and 24.78 million total pixels, offering a great performance when it comes to taking pictures and recording a video. Although video can be recorded in 1080p, Nikon D3300 manages to pull it off with a great quality in every light condition.

Nikon D3300 comes with a possibility to choose from 11 focus points, which is standard for this price tag. The physical part of Nikon D3300 isn’t bringing anything new to the table. It’s the same design used for almost all of the Nikon cameras in this price range, but Nikon D3300 is somehow very compact and fits nicely in hand. You can’t make a mistake if you decide for any of the Nikon cameras.

    This camera is the real deal!

    Would you ever tell, judging by its look, that Nikon D3300 costs around $500? Me neither! My dad bought me this camera yesterday and i'm amazed by its performance. It has a 24.78 MP sensor, capable of capturing 6000×4000 photos, and 1080p videos, which is enough for me.
