This was not an easy thread to come across. No model names in the title.
Decent. Would love a 300mm lens although no auto focus would be a deal breaker
It's a pretty nice lens! Can't complain for the price. I'll trade it in for one with AF when I have the extra money to add to it down the line.
Don't trade anything with those schmucks, offered me £155 for a camera that go for £350 - £400 on ebay.
A couple I've taken with the kit lens, and processed a bit.

Which third party 70-300mm lenses have working AF with these bodies?
This thread is a lot quieter than I expected. I would have thought there were far more owners in these ranges.
I think they were all assimilated by the borg and got a d750
D750 is far too big for my liking, and I prefer the extra reach of the crop factor to FF. Each to their own, I guess.
Very true (in my case) .... though I still have my D3200 as well
they just talk and discuss screen protectors and how long to wait after sending camera back for mirror fix, we just take photos
Ok time this thread was activated again.
It's been like a ghost town.
Dont worry Ben,i give me a few dys and i will give it some welly
It is a bit slow here, so with that in mind...
I was busy with the grandchildren and pets yesterday, I had the D3300 and kit lens mounted on a tripod. Mainly did video with a few photos thrown in. Pretty pleased with the results, considering the price point.
I will try and give you a hand.
Cheers john,the more pots the better,never be afraid to post ,thats why i say lol
This si the sensor inside the d3300,same as in the 5300 5500 and 7200.ok not so many options in what you can do with it but no big deal
to me anyway.
As thom Hogan says pretty much state of the art 24mp crop sensor as of today
I did not realise that this thread referred to the D3300/3400/5500/5600 models, when I first spotted the thread. It was only when I read the first post I figured it out. I wonder if the thread title could be tweaked, with D3300/3400/5500/5600 models added to it?
Yes beings i started it i can change it lol.give me. Minute
Bought yourself another Nikon then ?
Ahh that looks so much better (just had a quick look), no mistaken what it is about now.
I should leave, I have a D5200
Hang on mate
Trevor whatever gives you that idea lol
We’er the commoners of TP,basic amenities whilst looking starry eyed at the Sony nikon and canon Ff jobbies lol
Ok i tried the canon ex270 flash on my nikon d3300 but it doesnt work either on or off camera .am i missing something apart from the fact its a canon lol.ive read canon flashes work on nikon bodies,maybe is it because i have an entry level camera ?

I did try an old film flash on my D3300, it was one that I used on my old film camera, pictured above. I know probably not the wisest thing to do, it did work though. Stopped using it because I could not regulate the power and for safety reasons. The D3300 is pretty good at high ISO anyway, so I have not bothered looking into a flash gun for it.
I have a d5500. Just getting into photography and looking to buy myself a standalone copy of lightroom soon so i can enhance the photos i have.
I would post a couple up on here for others to have a play with, but im fairly sure they are shot in JPEG and not RAW which doesnt help!
What do you take photographs of mostly?
I have only ever used basic kit lenses which really arent great. although they match my photography skills.
I just bought myself a 70-200 f2.8 so hopefully the first part of the above might improve a little!
the light is less of an issue, its more handy to have the faster AF.
Welcome to the paupers Club,
For photos I mainly use the kit lens set at either 18mm or 24mm and I have managed to get some really pleasing photos with the D3300. Tend not to use the 35mm 1.8g all that much now, as I mainly photograph indoors and in the garden. The crop factor makes things too tight. I use my old film zoom lenses Tamron 28-300 and Nikon 70-300mm when doing video of wildlife etc and using manual focus works just a treat.
I love making sensible purchases, I could never justify spending £800 plus on a camera. I once spent £650 on a video camera, within a few years it was worth about fifty quid. I will never spend big money on a camera ever again.
Besides, the D3300 etc is more than capable.
There's little point investing any more until you know you have met the limits of your body. Once you know what you need extra from the camera that your current one doesn't do is when you know what to look for in an upgrade.
My abilities run out far before the body will.
I would say my biggest let down is my lack of PP skills which im hoping to address. Lightroom is a big 'topic' to learn, so im hopefully going to do it in small steps and learn as a go.
It is a perfect camera for me, the wifi was great when i need to back up photos on the move while on holiday / travelling.
I had the D60 and the D80 the D3300 is the upgrade, for me anyway .
I also have an old Fuji X10 that is still plodding along and I bought a new Canon ixus Compact last month, slips in a shirt pocket with ease. I am well covered for any photo opportunity that may come along.
