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

Pros: Robust and reliable, Fast and precise Af, good files right away, a machine gun in hand with burst shot.

Cons: Perhaps the only real flaw is not to dare too much with the tall Isos because the noise is evident.

Opinion: I took it because I was doing sports photography at the time, to be precise equestrian competitions, and with the d90 it was practically impossible to hook the horse that jumped the obstacle. Another world just the D300, I felt like I had a rifle, and I realized that a camera only needs a few things, one of which is the fast and precise AF, which hooks up well and an embarrassing shooting speed. Bought and immediately put to work on the pitch even in the rain, with an old 80-200 the result was really incredible, I felt almost like a sniper and the files were of a really higher quality, even with the crop factor the sharpness was not lost . After the Cavalli bracket, the D300 also looked great for various events and portraits, and with the pairing of the excellent 85mm 1.8G and 24mm 2.8D it became my work camera my par excellence, for events and portraits of all kinds. Not even the D700 has such a precise Af, in fact it is said that the Af of the D300 is the one designed for the D3. This explains why I mainly use the d300 for scene photos, being careful not to abuse with isos of course. The opinion is that this is not a camera like the others, and I bought another one just because it is really great , great to go inside the Stromboli at night is the reportage camera in extreme conditions , in Morocco under a downpoor I have never been afraid , reliable , they say it is a tank and it is true , while the older sister the D700 I use it for more "quiet" portraits , the D300 is the one to dive into particular situations where you know you need her, not to mention that she has all the commands in the right place, nothing is random, once in hand it is the camera for those who want to get serious. And on the D300 nothing is superfluous everything is designed for the professional photographer who wants to have control.

Pros: Mythical, indestructible, controls, sensor, tropicalized, weight, ergonomics, professional, raw quality... All

Cons: Nobody!

Opinion: An extraordinary professional machine. It was love on the first shot... Taken at 150 euros on rce photos. Better than compact much more expensive with modern features that often have little to do with photography itself... The d300 tank has no wifi, adjustable screen, iso 100000...ma takes the photos and makes them excellently well. Combined with nikon 35 mm f1.8 dx the sharpness is fantastic and the colors wonderful. Thanks to this jewel I learned the basics of photography. Thank you Nikon for making a reflex like that!

Pros: Tank, range, sensor still valid today, excellent ergonomics, crop factor 1.5 with lenses for FF.

Cons: Intrusive noise over the 1600 ISO, sight a little small.

Opinion: Found as new (3600 shots) at 200 euros, what to say, an icon of digital photography signed Nikon, when Nikon with the series D3, D700 and D300 still did good things. The body is robust, tropicalized well and ergonomically great, which then the D500 is better in everything well... I think it's obvious, but this is a reflex from as far back as 2007! let's not forget this. The RAW file is very good even today, it has a good dynamic range, the shadows open well and keeps the detail great! the noise, needless to deny it there is absolutely, but you can get great shots up to 1600 ISO and if you want, even at 3200 ISO as long as the photo is displayed impeccably. Among the defects (the very few defects) I find the scope perhaps a little small even if the cover is 100% I think, a slightly larger viewfinder would certainly have benefited. Good autonomy, especially if you use its BG MB-D10 in this configuration we have 2 batteries, one in the reflex body and the other inside the BG, can be abundantly exceeded the 1000 shots and beyond. If you find it in perfect condition, with a few shots under 200 euros take it without thinking a second! at the price of a current low-level compact, you bring home a state-of-the-art reflex body, plus if you also have an FF body with various lenses, you can use them with crop factor 1.5 which is very useful especially for long focals. My final judgment is absolutely positive, on the other hand, reflexes like D3 and D700 have made the history of Nikon and the D300, made in the same era, is no exception.
