More of an evolutionary upgrade to the D300, the Nikon D300S sports a faster frame rate, dual-media capability, and HD video capability.
While the Nikon D300S has the same 12.3-megapixel sensor as its predecessor, it can now capture up to 7.1 frames per second, which increases to 8 frames per second with the optional battery grip. The new SD/SDHC slot gives the Nikon D300S greater versatility, and it still has a Type I CompactFlash slot to work with the more traditional professional standard. But the big story with the Nikon D300S digital camera is its HD movie mode, capable of capturing 1,280 x 720 pixel videos at 24 frames per second. Though it has a built-in monaural microphone for audio recording, the Nikon D300S also includes a stereo mic-in jack for higher quality recording than was offered with the Nikon D90. Users can frame images via the big, beautiful optical viewfinder or the large, high-resolution LCD in Live view mode, and they can view their images and videos direct from the camera thanks to the Nikon D300S's HDMI-out port. The Nikon D300S is an impressive digital camera. Click here for our full review of the Nikon D300S.
