The Nikon D300 DSLR camera, is the new flagship of the Nikon prosumer (professional/consumer) range of DSLR cameras. It incorporates some of the groundbreaking technologies and performance of its big brother the Nikon D3 into a compact DX body. With a 12.3 megapixel CMOS sensor featuring a self-cleaning dust removal unit and EXPEED image processing engine supporting a class-leading 6 frames per second at up to 3200 ISO, it stands out from the rest of the Nikon prosumer range of cameras. Ever since the release of the D40X, the top and bottom of the range seemed very close in feature list, there didn't seem to be much of a list of differences between it and the D200. What were people getting extra for spending the extra money on the D200?

Now with the release of the D300 this very narrow range has been re-expanded again and the reason for spending the extra money has now returned. The Nikon D300 offers the next-generation 51-point AF system, and a high definition 3-inch LCD screen, supporting two Live View modes and HDMI video output.
