    Nikon D3300 vs D5300: which DSLR should you choose?

    Given the large number of similarities between the two cameras, it really boils down to how much you value built-in Wi-Fi, a flip-out screen and a few more AF points.

    The ‘guts’ of both cameras are not massively different, both are made from sturdy monococque casing and both have an easy to understand graphic interface to help beginners figure out camera functions.

    If money is tight we recommend going for the Nikon D3300, and if an extra £150 becomes available, put it towards an extra lens (wide-angle or macro, maybe) or a tripod.
