    Nikon D3300 vs D3200 vs D3100: 13 Dimensions

    Nikon D3300 vs D3200 vs D3100: 13 Dimensions

    The D3200’s body is fractionally larger than the D3100’s by a millimetre or so in width and depth, while the Nikon D3300 body has shrunk slightly compared to the D3200’s, but the differences are so small as to be insignificant. All three are very compact and will feel more or less the same in the hand.

    The real difference is the new retractable 18-55mm lens supplied with the Nikon D3300. This dramatically reduces the overall size of the camera/lens combination, and this will make the Nikon D3300 feel quite different – in a good way!

    The D3100 and D3200 bodies weigh the same, but Nikon has introduced a new ‘monocoque’ construction technique, first in the Nikon D5300 and now in the Nikon D3300. This results in a useful weight saving, and the D3300 is 45g lighter than its predecessors.

    This isn’t much on its own, but when you factor in the new retracting lens, which brings its own weight saving of 70g, the difference increases to 115g – so you really will notice it.

    As always with a brand new camera, the Nikon D3300 price tag is much higher than its predecessor’s, particularly since the older camera will always be discounted by this stage.

    There is a large price differential between the D3300 and the D3200 now, just as there was between the D3200 and the Nikon D3100 when the Nikon D3200 was launched. This gap will close, but perhaps not for a few months.
