Pros: Robustness, weight, ergonomics, AF speed, sensor, great RAW files

Cons: High ISO tightness but now the noise is corrected in PP

Opinion: I added the weight (almost 1 kg!) to the pros because when you pick up this camera you have a feeling of security and ergonomics that the almost square and sometimes plasticky bodies of today's mirrorless cameras don't have. A real tank! For work I use the Z6 II and Fuji XT-3 but these don't give me the same feeling as the D300, its construction and reliability. The only flaw is the high iso sealing, but now with the noise reduction through artificial intelligence of Adobe Camera Raw we can say that this problem almost no longer arises. I'm currently using it with a nikon af 35mm f2 D (comparable to a 50mm on FF) and I'm very happy with the rendering of the RAW files. I'll just conclude by saying that this camera is the DX sister of the D3 (one of the best reflex cameras ever produced by nikon if not perhaps the best, WB always perfect even in automatic, something that I didn't notice anymore in the following flagships) and in fact it is absolutely no less!

Pros: Robust pro body with all the keys you need and well placed, AF, remarkable ergonomics and balance, gorgeous files, great sensor, used price

Cons: heavy but not too much, no video, almost no LV, colors tend to turn to high iso with little light, iso that still arrive decently maximum 2500

Opinion: The d300 belongs to the 'sacred triad' d3-d300-d700, which marked an era in digital I would say not only at nikon:-)) Close to its replacement d500 still makes its figure indeed it even seems to be of a higher level ... perceived and usable at the top by true professional, obviously has its years on the rump and you can see using it, however it is still a great machine that in fact many professionals still use, a bit like the d700 in the FF ... Good for every season. the 12 mpx sensor allows it to be used with older lenses with great results, lightning AF well distributed and precise for more optimally configurable, ergonomics, construction and perfect balance do the rest, performing well with non-stabilized or poorly resolving lenses. Many setting possibilities complete it great. Studio machine, fashion, portrait, sports... He is really able to say so much more about his ... With battery grip and 2 batteries you get tired of using it, we are talking about thousands of shots, at the price that is today it is worth double, rated 9

Pros: professional with a little dense apsc sensor and superb 14BIT raw files

Cons: jpegs are not in step with the times

Opinion: a tank shoots 12-bit caliber bursts and 14-bit cannons perfectly in tune with the not too expensive zoom lenses and the not too resolute optics that serve to take beautiful photos. They are at 200 euros with very few shots and in perfect condition, mine had 2400. it is not a Leica because of the most important dimensions, but certainly perfection does not exist, although it must be said that it is also tropicalized. The light meter as well as the AF are impeccable, moreover you have the possibility to use lenses with motorized focus from the camera body. In my opinion, with due attention you can also raise the ISO values when needed but exposing with skill. The batteries are endless using optics without stabilizer. In short, everything at the top but for the sole purpose of taking photos.

Pros: Ergonomic construction

Cons: maybe it sins a bit 'at high iso but who cares

Opinion: It is the third that I find little on the used market. Taken two non-working purposely self-repaired for passion and immediately resold the third that I still think to keep it forever and next to the beast D3s. I use the D300 exclusively for macro with an old 60 afd and a 105 afd churns out gentlemen workable files and 'very fun to use and relatively light compared to the D3 that I use for everything else. If you find as it happened to me with a few shots and' to be taken on the fly given the evaluations and you photograph.

Pros: heavy , wonderful af even today in 2021 .. sensor that makes you enjoy every poor optics ... because of the few megapixels , ergonomics at the highest levels , better lighting recovery for me than the recent apsc models

Cons: heavy when unfortunately you carry it around your neck and you are sewn up from side to side , on tripod everything moves in any case .. even doing macumba.. the shutter when you operate confuses the stabilizer as happened with the 55-210 vr 2 nikon ... often in good light I have to disable it ... is0 max 500... after they are pains

Opinion: I had 2 .. and still with an 18,300 would be a great travel companion .. serves to photograph .. no frills various .. videos including .. ... the only frustrating thing are the photos with easel.. practically to use it at night I have to rest on a wall .. otherwise the shutter moves everything .. I kid you not.. I had similar situations with the 7d but not always and only in particular situations .. the d300 instead is made for good light and often the shutter sends me tilting the stabilizer making it operate during the shots in an unpredictable way ..... other thing that has always struck me .. of 60 and over cameras owned .. I've never seen the sensor of the d300 attract dirt.. never.. I think they treated the low pass filter in front of the sensor .. which in those years was still feasible .. now instead they are all at the savings .. already his heir .. the d300s had a cheaper low pass filter to the point that the photos looked less sharp put next to each other.. even today I look for a nice 18-400 or 16-300 to glue .. so much with those few megapixels everything goes into the background .. optical qualities included
