Design

1.has a flip-out screen

Nikon D3300

Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.

For example

Canon PowerShot SX70 HS

2.Weather sealed
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
Nikon D3300

Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.

3.has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
Nikon D3300

Lenses with built-in focus motor focus faster and more quietly than lenses without a focus motor which rely on the camera's body focus motor.

4. more viewfinder coverage

100%

95%

With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.

5.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
Nikon D3300

An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.

6.Has a built-in focus motor
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
Nikon D3300

The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

3.has AF tracking
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D

5.maximum light sensitivity

6400 ISO

25600 ISO

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.

Videography

1.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
Nikon D3300

A phase detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.

2.has continuous autofocus when recording movies

When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.

3.has a 24p cinema mode

Miscellaneous

1.Has focus motor
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
Nikon D3300

Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.

2.Front element doesn't rotate
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
Nikon D3300

The front element doesn’t rotate. This is important if you use filters, as some such as polarising or gradient filters have to be orientated a certain way.

3.Has a metal mount
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
Nikon D3300

A metal mount is generally superior to a plastic mount as it is more durable.

4.Is a normal lens
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
Nikon D3300

A normal lens is one that doesn't fall into another category such as wide angle or telephoto, and typically has a focal length between 35mm and 70mm. These lenses aren't tailored towards a specific type of photography, and so are quite versatile.

5.Can focus to infinity
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
Nikon D3300

Many lenses allow you to focus to infinity. This is essential when you wish to take photos including far off objects, such as when shooting landscapes, in order to make sure everything is sharp and in focus.

6.Has full-time manual focus
Nikon D300 + AF-Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4D
Nikon D3300

With full-time manual focus, you can move the focus ring whilst it is in AF (autofocus) mode. This means that you can make manual adjustments once the AF has finished, without changing to manual mode.
