Who It’s For:
The Nikon D300s is a mid-range DSLR that was announced in November of 2009. It is a slight upgrade from the D300, which incorporates advanced features such as the Virtual Horizon from the D3 and the ability to record movies. This camera is a great back up for professionals or a great midrange camera for someone who wants some great professional features for a fraction of the cost.
What We Like:
ISO Performance: The D300s can produce great images up to ISO 3200
Build Quality: Solid build quality that is also weather sealed
Quiet Mode: This is invaluable for wedding and event photographers who need to blend into the background or limit the distraction caused by the sound of their shutter.
What We Don’t:
Price: The D300s is expensive when compared to newer offerings from Nikon.
Resolution: At 12MP The D300s falls behind newer offerings at the same price point for resolution.
Not Worth The Upgrade: The D300s doesn’t seem to be worth the upgrade from the D300
