Nikon D300s Hands on First Thoughts

I had the opportunity today of playing with the new Nikon D300s for just a few minutes in a store while I was around the Nikon rep. Feels as good as the D300 did – not really any changes there.

The obvious change is the 720p HD video which I was told has now got AF – though if is probably not as fast as we may be accustomed to as still photographers. Another nice change is the built in flash coverage of 16mm opposed to the older 18mm on the D300 making the use of the AFS Nikkor 16-85mm VR more pleasant when you do opt to use the built in flash on a shot.

We hope to bring you a full review as we only had a few minutes and did not get a chance to take any pictures home, in fact the new D3000 was also there but time just did not allow me to try out both cameras.

You may know me better as 'Admin', as I work more behind the scenes to keep PhotoComment running smoothly, so here is a short history of how I got here. I started working in a camera store right out of high school having never picked up a camera before. I spent a few years working there and then moved to wholesale and then made a big change and went into the cycling industry for a few years, however I could not stay away and made the move back into the photography industry and have been working with PhotoComment since March 2008. It has become a passion and a labor of love to bring the best photographic content to you.
