With the updated D3300, Nikon takes the already strong D3200 and improves the sensor and shooting speed for a solid but ultimately unnecessary upgrade. Not surprisingly, the D3300 has excellent image quality for an entry-level camera, with ePHOTOzine saying the "exposure is reliable and gives good results, with bright saturated colours." As the D3300 is aimed at beginners, a user-friendly interface and control layout is important, and TrustedReviews says its "controls reflect its position as an entry-level DSLR." However, if you own a D3200, or even a D3100, there isn't much of a reason to rush out and upgrade to this, but if you're just starting out, the Nikon D3300 is a good choice.
