D300 (body only)


The Nikon D300 is a 12.3-megapixel professional DX format digital single-lens reflex camera that Nikon Corporation announced on 23 August 2007 along with the Nikon D3 FX format camera. It is designated by Nikon as the ultimate in DX format performance. It is quite similar to the D700, with the main difference being that the D300 uses a DX sensor instead of an FX sensor. It offers both high resolution and high speed (being able to capture 6 frames per second, and 8 frames per second with the addition of an optional MB-D10 battery pack).

As with most Nikon DX-format DSLRs, the Nikon D300 and MB-D10 are manufactured in Ayuthaya, Thailand. The D300 was officially discontinued by Nikon on September 11, 2009, replacing it with the Nikon D300s, released July 30, 2009.

The D300 has not only a built in autofocus motor for all Nikon autofocus-lenses, but includes CPU and metering for older Nikon F-mount AI/AI-S lenses. Additionally, like the Nikon D3, D3X, D700 and D300s, the D300 supports PC-E lenses.
