    Here’s where it gets more interesting. The Nikon D5300 has a 39-point AF system, based on nine cross-type AF points.

    This means that more AF points are available to cover a particular scene useful if you are photographing a group of people for instance, or a sports match.

    In comparison the entry level Nikon D3300 only has an 11-point AF system, based on 1 cross-type AF point.

    Now, this may seem like a major difference, but bear in mind that more experienced photographers often only select the most sensitive central AF point anyway, particular when taking portraits of still subjects.

    So sure, it’s good to have those extra AF points to cover a scene if you’re less confident about selecting individual points, but it’s not a deal breaker.

    Any advantage the Nikon D5300 has when it comes to a wider choice of AF points is evened out when it comes to continuous shooting both cameras will let you fire off a burst of five pictures per second in fine-quality JPEG (rather than raw) mode.

    Unless you’re a sports or wildlife photographer this should be more than enough, and is obviously great for ensuring you get usable shots of fast-moving action.

    A key difference between the two cameras is the rear screen. The Nikon D5300 boasts a 3.2-inch, 1,037,000-dot screen which can be viewed at different angles.

    The screen provides a lovely clear view with lots of detail visible, making it particularly useful for shooting candid street compositions, or in LiveView mode.

    The screen is not touch sensitive, though. In comparison, the Nikon D3300 has a fixed 3-inch screen with 921,000 dots.
