Cheap alternatives

Design

1.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Nikon D300S
Nikon D700
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
2.Has a built-in focus motor
Nikon D300S
Nikon D700
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.
3.weight

840g

995g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
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 afterward to get them looking perfect.
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
6.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon D300S
Nikon D700
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens will capture. OVFs have no time lag and require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders, which can drain battery life. OVFs are also better in low light situations.

Optics

1.sensor size

23.6 x 15.8mm

36 x 23.9mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
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.
The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
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.
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
6.has AF tracking
Nikon D300S
Nikon D700
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.

Videography

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.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
3.has a 24p cinema mode
Nikon D300S
Nikon D700
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Nikon D300S
Nikon D700
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
2.has a microphone input
Nikon D300S
Nikon D700
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
3.has stereo speakers
Nikon D300S
Nikon D700
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

Battery

1.Battery life (CIPA)

950shots

1000shots

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
2.has a removable battery
Nikon D300S
Nikon D700
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
3.has a rechargeable battery
Nikon D300S
Nikon D700
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
4.has a battery level indicator
Nikon D300S
Nikon D700
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
5.battery power

1500mAh

1500mAh

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.

Features
