Part of opClarity includes reviews for specific products. Sometimes these products are unique to specific stores sometimes they are not. If we have multiple stores that sell a specific product we will try and review each of them. For the Nikon, those who purchase already know that it is top of the line. So generally we just want to give our readers what we do best. Some good text based synopsis. Check back here for more updates with our own reviews and signed videos as well. Rock on!

Nikon D5300 vs D3300 – 5 Key Differences (0:36) In terms of body design they’re quite similar. They both come in three different colors, buttons and dials, kind of the same. But when we look at the screen D5300 has a bigger screen. 3.2 inches versus 3 inches. One million dots, 900K dots. Well the D3300 has actually got the bigger viewfinder. .85 times magnification over .82. Not really a big difference, though. The real biggie: the 5300 has this (flips out screen). What’s so good about a tilty screen? It’s so you can take good selfies. Cropping out unnecessary stuff that clutters up you frame. Shop logos, rubbish, your friends. Not that easy with a D3300 fixed screen.
In use, the autofocus modes are quite similar. Face detection, contrast detect, forward sensor, continuous tracking, multi-area, selective single point, single point, face detection, live view, continuous, tracking. But there is a difference. The D5300’s points arrange in a fashion that just happens to cover the whole goal but the D3300 has plenty of gaps everywhere, just like the Man United defense. More points, more choice. Either picked by you of if you’re letting the camera do the picking. Better for tacking finer movements. Both of them have wi-fi capability, but not straight out of the box.
The The D5300 has it straight out of the box. The D3300 has it not so straight out of the box. You have to add it on. You have to open the flap and putting the module in. And you can’t close the flap. Also the D5300 has GPS. The D5300 is a more elegantly connected camera for social media savvy people. Also with the wifi ready D5300 you can take photos by yourself of yourself. Both cameras have a graphical user interface and they also have effects and raw processing within the camera. But there are differences. They’ve both got the same filters. But the D3300 has “easy panorama.” The D5300 doesn’t have panorama. In terms of video performance, they both offer the same frame rates. The only difference is that the D5300 has a built in stereo mic. The D3300, only mono. They look similar, they feel similar and shoot quite similar. There are subtle differences that set them apart slightly. The D3300 is a stripped down, good enough for photos and video version. It’s for people who don’t care about having that slight extra ability or integrated wi-fi capability. The D5300 is just that little bit step further into the photography enthusiast side.
