Nikon D3300 is a 24.2-megapixel[1] DX format DSLR Nikon F-mount camera officially launched by Nikon on January 7, 2014. It is marketed as an entry-level DSLR camera for beginners (offering tutorial- and improved guide-mode) and experienced DSLR hobbyist who are ready for more advanced specs and performance. It replaces the D3200 as Nikon's entry level DSLR. The D3300 usually comes with an 18-55mm VR II kit lens, which is the upgraded model of older VR (Vibration Reduction) lens.

The Expeed 4 image-processing engine enables the camera to capture 60 fps 1080p video in MPEG-4 format. And 24.2 megapixel images without optical low-pass filter (OLPF, anti-aliasing (AA) filter) at 5 fps as the fastest for low-entry DSLR.[2][3] It is Nikon's first DSLR camera with Easy (sweep) Panorama. As in the Nikon D5300, the carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer body and also the new retractable kit lens makes it smaller and lighter. The camera body is approx. 124 x 98 x 75.5 mm and weighs 460 g with and 410 g without battery and memory card.

In April 2014, the D3300 received a Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) award in the category "Best Digital SLR Entry Level".[4]

The D3300 was superseded as Nikon's entry-level camera by the D3400 in late 2016.
