Nikon’s new D3300, entry-level DSLR, made an appearance at the Consumer Electronics Show, Las Vegas. The D3300 will replace the D3200 from last year and will come with an Expeed 4 image processor.
The camera comes with a 24.2MP DX-format CMOS sensor and can shoot full HD videos too. Nikon has done away with the optical low-pass filter for the D3300. The camera is capable of 5fps high-speed continous shooting mode and an ISO range of 100 to 12800. The ISO ensures great quality images even in low light an 11-point Autofocus System ensures that you can capture moving stories easily.

The camera comes with 13 in-camera effects and four new effects modes, including Photo Illustration, Super Vivid and Pop. The fourth mode is the first for Nikon HD-SLRs called the Easy Panorama Mode, and it does exactly what the name suggests. You can also shoot videos in Full 1080p HD up to 60p.
