The camera has an amazing operating speed that makes it quite responsive. 13ms is its powering up time. The controls offered in the Nikon D300 are quite traditional and easy to use.

Multi –CAM 3500 is used in the D300 takes the performance of the auto focus feature to another level. Only after using it one could experience the power. I could only say that the camera had no difficulty capturing a flying bird and the results were impressive. As it uses the Multi – Cam 3500 the auto focus module is defiantly better than that of D2X. Though the D2X wasn’t bad either it had Multi-CAM 2000.

VIEWFINDER

The viewfinder in the Nikon D300 is an absolute pleasure. It is much brighter and large for DX sensor. It also had gridline feature on demand. It uses too less battery as in case you take off the battery the gridlines would be blurry but would be there for some seconds. Below the image that the view finder would capture the Nikon D300 has the essential setting information.
