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 new kit lens has the ability to retract its barrel, shortening it for easy storage.

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The D3300 was superseded as Nikon's entry-level camera by the D3400 in late 2016.
