Nikon D300S Review
5 Star Review  Imaging Resource - Feb 16, 2010

More of an evolutionary upgrade to the D300, the Nikon D300S sports a faster frame rate, dual-media capability, and HD video capability. While the Nikon D300S has the same 12.3-megapixel sensor as its predecessor, it can now capture up to 7.1 frames per second, which increases to 8 frames per second with the optional battery grip. The new SD/SDHC slot gives the Nikon D300S greater versatility, and it still has a Type I CompactFlash slot to work with the more traditional professional standard. But the big story with the Nikon D300S digital camera is its HD movie mode, capable of capturing 1,280 x 720 pixel videos at 24 frames per second. Though it has a built-in monaural microphone for audio recording, the Nikon D300S also includes a stereo mic-in jack for higher quality recording than was offered with the Nikon D90. Users can frame images via the big, beautiful optical viewfinder or the large, high-resolution LCD in Live view mode, and they can view their images and videos direct from the camera thanks to the Nikon D300S's HDMI-out port. The Nikon D300S is an impressive digital camera. See our full review for more on the Nikon D300S.

Camera Labs – Nikon D300s review
4.5 Star Review  cameralabs.com - Sep 27, 2009

The Nikon D300s is a powerful semi-pro DSLR which builds upon the already highly capable D300. The inclusion of 720p video with a microphone input is a welcome upgrade, and the Virtual Horizon and Quiet mode are minor but handy gadgets. By far the most useful new additions though are the dual memory card slots, allowing you to backup images or organise RAW and JPEGs on separate media. So once again a very strong camera has become even better, but unlike its predecessor, the D300s now has a direct rival in Canon’s EOS 7D. There’s a lot to weigh-up between them, not to mention other models above and below in the range, so in our D300s review at Cameralabs we’ve compared all the key features. You’ll also find sample images in both JPEG and RAW, along with a video clip you can download and evaluate on your own computer – and for a demo of the key features, there’s also our video tour, in high definition.

Nikon D300s Review
4.5 Star Review  photographyblog.com - Oct 5, 2009

The Nikon D300s is the latest camera to join the growing ranks of DSLRs that can shoot HD video. Heavily based on the previous D300 model, the 12 megapixel, DX-format D300S adds a continuous shooting speed of 7fps, dual CF and SD memory card slots and a new Quiet drive mode. With camera prices escalating in recent months, the Nikon D300s will set you back £1499.99 / €1821.00 / $1799.95 body only. Zoltan Arva-Toth finds out if the D300s is worth considering...

Nikon D300s (body)
4 Star Review  cnet.com - Sep 9, 2009

THE GOOD: Outstanding performance for its class; excellent photo quality; solidly built; flexible custom settings architecture; video capture; onboard wireless flash controller; dual card slots. THE BAD: Some annoying design and interface quirks; no significant improvements in high ISO noise performance. THE BOTTOM LINE: The Nikon D300s is a great camera, especially if you need the burst speed or slightly improved low-light focus, but if you dont care about video you might consider looking for a really good deal on a D300 and using what you save to splurge on a good lens.

Nikon D300S | Body Only
4.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Nov 18, 2009

The Nikon D300S is a high-end 13.1 megapixel digital SLR camera released in August 2009. As the successor to the Nikon D300, this updated camera absorbs several features seen since the original’s release including the virtual horizon and quite drive feature, plus a 720p movie mode. A first for Nikon is contrast-detection autofocus, which operates while taking video on the D300S. Compared to the previous model, the camera’s continuous shooting speed has been increased to 7fps from 6fps. Other improvements include simplified menus as well as extra lighting options. Other features include a 3 inch LCD display, 51 autofocus points and a dual memory card slot (CF/SD). The D300S uses what Nikon calls “EXPEED” image processing, which allows the camera to automatically adjust internal settings based on the shooting environment. More experienced users can manually adjust a variety of camera settings including the flash, white balance focus and exposure. Features 3” ... PROS: (1) 51-point AF system (2) durable build (3) slightly faster continuous shooting compared to the D300 (7 or 8FPS vs 6 or 7FPS - depends on use of battery grip) (4) now offers SD card support (as well as CF) includes intelligent management modes (backup mirror, splitting RAW & JPEG, overflow) (5) low noise 12.3MP sensor (same as that on the originally D300) ... CONS: (1) mono microphone for video recording (2) 5 minute video length limit (3) not a revolutionary upgrade from the now year-old D300

I am pleased with the condition of the D300s shipped. I was concerned with the number of exposures and found that the E+ rated camera had about 11000 exposures. I was also pleased to have additional cables shipped which were not mentioned in the what's included description. I am currently shooting with a D200 and am enjoying the enhancements contained with this camera.

I was worried that NIkon might annouce a newer version soon after purchasing this one, but I had to make the move. I'm glad I did. Great camera, and vastly improved photos over my D80.

Best camera I've ever owned
5 Star Review   By [@] on Adorama - Sep 5, 2011   

I've used all of Nikon's semi-pro bodies from the D100 on, and this is hands-down the best I've ever used. Building on the solid D300, the D300s perfects the modest shortcomings of that model and throws in HD video to top it all off. JPGs come out of the

Great Camera Body!

Best Nikon I have ever owned.
5 Star Review   By Yankee in the south on Adorama - Sep 4, 2011   

It is a amazing camera. Most other reviews I read were from people trying to find something wrong with this camera. I am sure the low light shoots with fulll frame are better but this and my 1.4 have done outstanding with my daughters horse back riding in

Nikon D300S 12.3 - Love this camera
5 Star Review   By AlleeOops on Adorama - Sep 4, 2011   

I am a professional corporate and event photographer. I shoot everything from the dance floor to the boardroom. I also have a line of posters and greeting cards. I have to have a reliable, high-quality camera at my fingertips at all times.

Thinking of buying one for my wife.
5 Star Review   By RC on Adorama - Sep 4, 2011   

This is an excellent camera. I was given a D70s, my first DSLR, and used it for a couple years. It was a very good camera for what it was, but the 300s feels so much better in my hands, not to mention all the features. My wife is using the 70s now, and I

Great Camera - Upgraded from a D70s
5 Star Review   By Mike7840 on Adorama - Sep 4, 2011   

It is somewhat heavy but that is to be expected with a DSLR of this variety. It is extremely rugged. It feels good in my hands particularly with my Tamron 18-270 mm lens. A great all-purpose setup even though I use several other lenses for specific situat

5 Star Review   By ebephoto on Adorama - Apr 14, 2011   

The camera is absolutely great! It has A LOT of features that you can play with. For me as I switched from a different brand it took some time to figure it out andmake the settings work the best. It is quite heavy and if you add a great lens like 17-55 mm

Nikon D300S

This is one of the best SLR cameras in the price range. It's easy to use and provides top quality photos. Best for semi-pro and amateur photographers.

Makes an amateur feel-shoot like a pro.
5 Star Review   By Ron on Adorama - Jan 12, 2011   

I bought the D300s hoping to get more out of my camera and to advance my photo skills from amateur to a more advanced stage. The D300s far exceeded my goals. The D300s was one of the best decisions I ever made. In the short time I've been able to use it,

A nice upgrade from D300
5 Star Review   By Old photo guy on Adorama - Dec 14, 2010   

I have a D300, which was an upgrade from D100 & D80. D300s allows me to have 2 separate photo systems within same familiar format, with upgraded features. Primarily use for wildlife, macro, and landscape photography. Because it is compatable with all manu

Trustworthy and Powerful Tool
5 Star Review   By pixels.in.my.head on Adorama - Dec 2, 2010   

Moving up from a D80 gave me the much needed PC sync port for working with studio lighting, more auto focus points, faster burst mode and a little larger image for enlargements/prints purposes. I use the camera for fine art landscape, portraiture, product

1st trip with my D300S
5 Star Review   By PJ the traveler on Adorama - Aug 11, 2010   

I just took a family vacation/camping trip and brought this camera along. I love the ease in switching from video to stills. I'm so used to holding an SLR camera body that the videos that I took are much better than the ones I've taken with our palm sized

Great camera with loads of features
5 Star Review   By Chris Biele on Adorama - Jun 22, 2010   

I recently upgraded my camera from the Pentax K10d to this Nikon D300s and I am just as happy as I thought I would be. The Pentax had many pro features, but the Nikon feels and reacts more like a pro body. Above all, I am extremely happy with the overall

Great Camera
4 Star Review   By Saechang on Adorama - May 24, 2010   

I love my d300s. I was using a d50 for a couple of years and then finally decided to upgrade after shooting with my brother's d300 for a month. The d300s is great. The 51 point autofocus system is amazing and the focus is extremely fast. I've had Canon us

Absolutely Love this camera
5 Star Review   By Shar on Adorama - May 9, 2010   

I used the 300 at the last portrait studio and for events along with the 17-55mm lens. When I went out on my own, I decided to go with the D300s and same lens and am completely satisfied with this purchase.

Awesome camera
5 Star Review   By RC on Adorama - Apr 26, 2010   

Still learning the camera, but it is not as hard as I thought it might be after using a D70s for a few years. Going to Thailand in a few days, and I will use it extensively. Great camera.

Rapid Fire DX
5 Star Review   By Kilo on Adorama - Apr 20, 2010   

The D300s is super fast, but when coupled with the MB-D10 Battery/Grip it turns into a machine gun! The dual slots are cool (CF and SD)and you can choose between which card or both, back-up or overflow or a combination of both. I'm impressed that when I d

4 Star Review   By Cat Tail # 9 on Adorama - Apr 11, 2010   

After using a D 200 for several years I decided that it was time to upgrade to the D300s. My first DSLR was a Nikon D70; I then moved to the D 200. If you are familiar with either of these cameras you will not have any problem switching to the 300s. The c

I use the D300S for general photography, street, and travel. It is very rugged and full of features. The 2 card slots are great to have. Best "prosumer" DSLR from any manufacturer (IMHO). Some folks seem to have issues with the video mode, but if you nail

Nikon D300S -- Six Month Report

Nikon fan so only real regret is Canon 7D comes out the following month with what Nikon should have included in the D300S. Great camera builds on D300 foundation. Unable (yet) to replicate the video quality shown on Nikon website. May be there but I still
