Earlier we reported on a rumored that Nikon could be looking to announce new cameras at CES 2014, such as the Nikon D4 and the Nikon D3300. We’re still waiting for an official announcement of sorts but until then, it looks like the folks over at Tom’s Guide might have let the cat out of the bag a little earlier than expected when they accidentally published an article related to the upcoming Nikon D3300. Presumably the article was under embargo and the post has since been removed (you can view the cached post above), but it does highlight some of the Nikon D3300’s features as well as provide us with a look as to what the camera could look like.
According to their post, the Nikon D3300 is the successor to the D3200 which was introduced last year. Some of the D3300’s specs includes an upgrade to 5fps shooting from 4fps from the Nikon D3200, an Expeed 4 chip to power the camera, ISO sensitivity increased from 12,800 to 25,600, video capture at 1080p Full HD at 60fps with 24 and 30fps options available as well, a new panorama mode, and will not sport an optical low-pass filter. Oddly enough despite the D3300 being a successor to the D3200, the latter will not be discontinued, so for those looking for an entry level camera but don’t need all the bells and whistles, perhaps the D3200 could be an affordable option.
