Nikon D300S Review

The Nikon D300S is a 12.3-megapixel DX format digital single-lens reflex camera (DSLR) announced by Nikon on 30 July 2009. It replaces the D300 as Nikon’s flagship DX format DSLR adding HD video recording (with autofocus). It has some similarities to the Nikon D700, with the same resolution, but has a smaller, higher-density sensor. The D300s was finally superseded by the Nikon D500, announced on January 5, 2016.
