Summary: I recently upgraded from a Nikon D60. I took some great pictures with my D60, but after shooting a few weddings, I started to realize that I needed more control, speed, power and flexibility. The D300s delivered on all of these. With the D60 i could only get off 7-8 shots in continuous shooting mode before the buffer filled up and the shots begin to slow down from 4 shots per second to 1 shot per 1.5 seconds. The D300s shoots 7 per second with no slowdown at all. the buffer is rated for over 100 high resolution shots. I occasionally ran into situations during weddings where no flash was allowed during the ceremony. I could slow down the shutter and get blurry pictures, increase the aperture and/or increase the ISO and get grainy undesirable pictures. The D60 started to show noticeable grain at ISO 600. I have taken shots with the D300s at ISO 3200 with no grain. All in all, this is a great camera for anyone who wants great shots and upgrading from a D60, D90, D3000 etc. The learning curve on a camera such as the D300s is steep. There are NO automatic settings to fall back on. You have to know what shutter speed, ISO and aperture is and how to manipulate all three in harmony. If you have never owned a DSLR, you may want to start with an entry level camera like a D3000 or D5000. They take incredible pictures at a fraction of the cost and although the learning curve is the same for manual mode, you still have the AUTO mode to fall back on if your in a tight situation.
Thanks for your submission!
