NIKON D300 BODY Features

Agility, speed, low noise and spectacular imaging performance converge in the Nikon D300 to create an amazingly versatile D-SLR that, with your imagination, is ready to go to work. A high-resolution 12.3-megapixel, DX-format image sensor with exclusive Nikon EXPEED digital image processing technology captures your vision at up to 6 frames per second. Add the optional MB-D10 grip to boost your speed to 8 FPS!

A fast 51-area AF system is now even smarter when teamed with Nikon's exclusive Scene Recognition System. The SRS provides additional data to Nikon's famous 1,005-pixel RGB 3D Color Matrix Metering II, assuring even more accurate exposures and white balance detection. Of course, the D300 offers precision Center-Weighted and Spot metering control.

Reliable image review and menu access now comes to life with the D300's bright, tempered-glass protected, 170-degree wide-angle, 3-inch, 920,000-dot VGA TFT LCD monitor. The high-resolution LCD is also the D300's viewfinder when either of two LiveView modes is selected, and new Picture Control settings offer precise fine-tuning of your image characteristics. Simply put, the D300 was engineered to exceed expectations.
