Short version: If you are familiar with the Nikon D300, then you can just expect more of the same. The D300s doesn’t do anything ground breaking, but what it does is add some nice features to an already excellent DSLR — most importantly, HD video and SD card support. The D300s is the latest version of Nikon’s award-winning D300, which was released in August of 2007. The D300s… → Read More
We just got our Nikon D300s, and it’s looking good. I’ve taken a few beauty shots for you, and shot some video with the camera as well. First impressions are good, but that’s to be expected as it’s based on the the excellent D300 body. We’ll be comparing the D300s to a D300 in our full review to help you decide if you want to upgrade or not.

I’ve got good news and bad news, Nikon-lovers.
The good news is that the D300s is available now and looks great.
The bad news is the movie mode still features major jelly-motion, and the autofocus is comically slow. We already got a taste of the HD movies with these official productions, but as we noted then, they avoided certain camera movements which embarrass the camera somewhat. Not now! → Read More
The Nikon D300s, at $1800, represents a good option for serious prosumer photographers who don’t want or need a full-frame camera like the 5D mkII. Now that it shoots video, it’s an even more serious contender — but does it have the same rolling shutter/skew/jell-o-vision as the D90 and other DSLR video? Check out these two videos and see for yourself. → Read More
Nikon runs a leaky ship, that’s for sure. The D300s is following the same path that the D5000 blazed. The upcoming DSLR is set to launch shorty according to a leaked release schedule, but here she is. I’m sure it’s safe to say that the D300s is the real deal at this point.

Nikon Rumors may or may not have Nikon’s 2009-2010 product roadmap, but we kind of hope what it’s the real thing. It’s loaded with six upcoming DSLRs and tons of lens, including the D3000 and D300s being announced on August 4th just like we thought. Then next year we should see the rumored D4 with the D4x coming later in the year, along with the D400 and a Coolpix model that… → Read More
Well, well. We told you that Nikon was going to launch two DSLR cameras this summer. These two are probably them and we need to point out that Nikon is getting good “leaking” pics of unannounced cameras. The last time around, everyone and their brother knew about the D5000 before it was official. This time we’re seeing the D300s – which we already know about – and the also unannounced D3000. → Read More
There has been quiet mumbling online for a couple of weeks now about a new Nikon D300. This time around though, it would be the D300s with the extra letter hinting that it probably supports SD memory cards. Well, a new image popped up on Nikon.com that seems to lend some crediability to the rumor. → Read More
