Preserve Precious Memories with Incredible Quality
Life is full of memorable moments that are meant to be captured with supreme quality and rich detail. The Nikon D3300 features a high-resolution 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor to help ensure amazing image quality, even in challenging low-light shooting scenarios. The high resolution affords photographers the ability to capture crisp details or crop images with confidence. For increased image fidelity, the sensor has no optical low pass filter (OLPF), boosting resolution and image sharpness to the maximum, while the addition of a new EXPEED 4 image processor helps render true colors and precise detail in every image. EXPEED 4 also offers improved image quality at high ISOs, enhanced auto white balance performance, faster processing speeds and improved battery efficiency. Whether shooting candids of the kids or a weekend getaway at the beach, the Nikon D3300 is ready to deliver beautiful stills and stunning HD video.
 
The Nikon D3300 is packed with high performance features that make shooting easy and enjoyable, even in difficult shooting situations such as fast action sports and low-light scenes.

Nikon’s newest HD-SLR is also capable of high-speed continuous shooting at up to 5 frames-per-second (fps), great for the fast-moving action of a soccer game or dance recital.
 
Create, Share, Enjoy
Brimming with fun features, the Nikon D3300 is ready to help create and share incredible stories through beautiful images and HD video. With the help of the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter, users can take advantage of Wi-Fi connectivity for instant uploading of images and videos to a smart device for easy sharing through social networks. Users can also remotely control the D3300 using their smart device as a remote “Live View” monitor. Releasing the shutter from a smart device will help make sure no one is left out of the next family photo.
 
The Nikon D3300 is ready to help each user realize their creative vision with 13 In-Camera Effects and four new effects modes, including Photo Illustration, Super Vivid and Pop. The D3300 is also the first Nikon HD-SLR equipped with the fourth new effects mode, Easy Panorama Mode, enabling the capture of beautiful landscapes and stunning scenic views with ease. When the story is better told with HD video, Nikon’s newest HD-SLR is ready at a moment’s notice to help users create glorious Full 1080p HD video with vivid color and sharp details, up to 60p. Capturing gorgeous HD video is easy with the Nikon D3300 with the assistance of Full-time AF (autofocus) to help keep elusive subjects in focus, and a one-touch recording button so not to miss any moment.
 
For those new to the benefits of D-SLR photography, Nikon has expanded upon its acclaimed Guide Mode to help users learn and explore new ways to capture great photos and HD video. Guide Mode teaches the basic functions of the camera, but also works to help the user become a better, more knowledgable photographer. When using this mode, users have access to four options: Shoot photos using example images, View/Delete, Setup and Retouch their images in-camera, making it easy for beginners to immediately take their photos to the next level.
 
Capture On-The-Go
The extremely lightweight and versatile D3300 is the perfect companion for a fast moving, always on the go lifestyle. The camera features a conveniently compact body (4.9” x 3.8” x 2.9”), and is ergonomically designed for a comfortable hold that is easy to take anywhere. Additionally, the camera body is constructed with carbon fiber for lightweight durability. The D3300 is also equipped with an optical viewfinder that helps frame the perfect shot in any lighting condition, whether capturing the school play or a high school graduation.
 
To complement the Nikon small stature of the D3300, Nikon has also introduced the new, more compact AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II standard zoom lens that inherits a familiar focal length (27-82.5mm, 35mm equivalent) while incorporating a new retractable lens barrel design found in Nikon’s 1 NIKKOR lens series. This design ensures the lens is remarkably smaller than its predecessor, and when paired with the D3300 makes the camera package nearly 30% smaller and 25% lighter. An ideal 3X zoom lens for every on-the-go moment, the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II lens features up to four stops of VR image stabilization, a silent wave motor to ensure quiet AF operation and auto/manual focusing options.
 
The 35mm f/1.8: A Versatile FX-Format Prime Ready for Anything
With the latest addition to Nikon’s popular f/1.8 prime series of FX-format lenses, Nikon has announced the new AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G, a versatile fixed lens ready to thrive in any shooting situation. The new 35mm f/1.8G lens rounds out a collection of acclaimed f/1.8 lenses including the AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8G, AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G and AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G lenses. Sporting the popular 35mm focal length and covering a 63 degree angle of view with a constant f/1.8 aperture, Nikon’s newest FX-format lens delivers outstanding viewfinder clarity and high contrast while providing outstanding low-light performance and depth of field control.
 
Great for available light environment portraits, landscapes and travel photography as well as for producing beautiful images with soft, natural bokeh, the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G is a versatile and valuable addition to any FX-format photographer’s lens arsenal and sports the latest in core NIKKOR technologies that ensure elite performance.

Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM Contemporary Lens & 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens
From Sigma USA:
 
LAS VEGAS– Jan. 6, 2014 – Sigma Corporation of America, a leading researcher, developer, manufacturer and service provider of some of the world's most impressive lines of lenses, cameras and flashes, today announced the launch of two new Global Vision lenses from the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
 
The improved and redesigned 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM and 50mm F1.4 DG HSM lenses are the latest additions to Sigma’s Global Vision lineup. Both lenses’ availability and pricing have yet to be announced.
 
“These two lenses are among our most popular, and we’re pleased to reintroduce these products by adding them to our Global Vision lineup,” said Mark Amir-Hamzeh, president of Sigma Corporation of America. “The 18-200mm, in particular, is an exciting new lens as it now has macro functionality, updated optics and a Global Vision design, making it a fantastic alternative to the kit lens. As has been the case with our recent Global Vision lenses, we expect an array of photographers to gravitate to their technically advanced features and slick new look.”
 
The 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM Contemporary lens, designed specifically for APS-C DSLRs, is the successor to the 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 II DC OS HSM, which was launched in 2011. The smaller and lighter lens (15.2 ounces and 2.8x3.4 inches versus 17.3 ounces and 3x3.5 inches) now macro capabilities with a minimum focusing distance of 15.4 inches and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3, as opposed to the lens’ earlier minimum focusing distance of 17.7 inches and max magnification ratio of 1:3.8. Its minimum working distance is 14.7 inches, which makes the lens suitable for close-up shooting with natural light, keeping shadows of the camera and lens out of the image.
 
The 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 Macro has also been updated to incorporate Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements that have a high refractive index and can correct chromatic aberration at the telephoto-end. Moreover, aspherical lens elements, including double-sided aspherical lenses, will ensure a compact size and excellent correction of distortion.
 
The new Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM Art has been reengineered and redesigned to set a new standard of performance in the Art line. A staple focal length, the new Sigma 50mm F1.4 Art is a pro level performer for full-frame DSLRs great for many different types of photography including portraits, landscapes, studio work and still-life. It has been updated to include SLD glass and optimized for rich peripheral brightness with improved large aperture performance by positioning wide elements into the front groups. Other updates include an optimized autofocus algorithm for smoother focusing and a floating focusing system to reduce lens movement while focusing. Under the Global Vision line, it features a new matte finish, improved AF on/off switch and guarantees every lens is tested with Sigma’s proprietary modulation transfer function (MTF) “A1” measuring system before being shipped. Now with 13 elements in 8 groups compared to the previous 8 elements in 6 groups, it also has improved close focusing at 15.7 inches and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:5.6
 
Both lenses incorporate Sigma’s Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) system to produce quiet, high-speed auto focus. In addition, they include Super Multi-Layer Coating to reduce flare and ghosting, and to ensure high-quality images throughout the entire zoom range. The 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM and 50mm F1.4 DG HSM lenses are also compatible with Sigma’s USB dock and the company’s Mount Conversion Service.
 
Other recently announced lenses and accessories such as the 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM, 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM | ART and USB Dock will be on display at Sigma’s CES booth. Visit Sigma at CES 2014 at booth 10431in Central Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center from Jan. 7 to 10.

I also have an announcement to make. There is a lot of business involved with photography and the same is also true for website development and maintenance. As I've said before: One of my jobs here is to make sure that we have the funding necessary to continue producing this site for you.
 
With that in mind, I would like to announce that B&H Photo will be the site's premier retailer going into 2014. I have no hesitation in recommending B&H – I have complete confidence that they will take great care of you and that you will pay the lowest prices.

Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera + NIKKOR DX 18-105mm ED VR Lens
eBay (via BigValueInc) has the Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera + NIKKOR DX 18-105mm ED VR Lens available for $1,099.99 with free shipping. Compare at $1,296.95.
 
Caveat Emptor: Note that the Nikon D7100 deal listed here is not advertised as coming with a Nikon USA warranty and this camera is likely a grey market item. The auction indicates that a warranty is included, but that warranty may be a BigValueInc warranty. If such, BVI's warranty only covers parts for 1 year and labor for 90 days.
 
BigValueInc's positive feedback rating is at 99.2%. That is a good rating (and has been improving), but not a stellar rating. We have received a couple of reports of buyers receiving the wrong product when purchasing from this merchant, so be sure to keep all supporting documents if taking advantage of this offer. eBay trusts "BigValueInc" enough to call them a "Top Rated Plus" seller and to list their auctions as "Daily Deals". We have had a good first-hand experience with them (here and here).
