The Nikon D300

The Nikon D300 is the LONG awaited successor to the D200, which was introduced way back in 2005. This upgrade isn't evolutionary by any stretch of the imagination -- it's a totally new camera. Here are the most significant new features:

* New 12.3 effective Megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor
* EXPEED image processing "concept"
* Continuous shooting as fast as 8 frames/second (with the optional battery grip)
* 51-point autofocus with 3D subject tracking
* Huge 3-inch LCD display with 307,000 pixels (920,000 dots) with live view support
* Dust reduction system
* Picture Control settings let you have sets of color control settings (think Picture Styles on Canon SLRs)
* Active D-Lighting lets you brighten shadows while taking photos (instead of after)
* Rugged magnesium alloy body is sealed against dust and moisture
* HDMI video output
