Whether you are a potential buyer, or a new owner or even a veteran owner of a Nikon DSLR camera, there are numerous bundling options to redefine your ideas in photography. The Nikon D3300 comes bundled with an 18-55mm kit lens out of the box. However, to unlock the full potential of this wonderful camera, there is a need to invest in a range of accessories and lenses. Here are a few of what we consider essential.
Nikon D3300 Lenses
To change image type, quality, lighting, and clarity, the best Nikon D3300 lenses will make you a better photographer.
Standard prime lens for a faster maximum aperture for better lighting in poor lighting conditions. Also good for subject isolation through shallow depth of field manipulations. The Tamron SP 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD is a favorite of many a photographer.
Telephoto zoom lens works great for wildlife as well as action photography. Also good for closely cropped candid shots or portraits and zeroing in on specific details of landscapes. 70-200mm f/2.8 lenses are more favored by seasoned professionals but there are a wide variety of lenses to choose from, as dictated by use and preference. The Nikon AF-S 70-200mm f/4G ED VR is great for unstable shots thanks to its Vibration Reduction system.
Wide-angle zoom lenses– you may need to capture subjects much wider than the bundled 18-55mm lens will allow. Crowded interiors, massive landmarks, broad landscapes and near-magical close-ups demand an ultra wide-angle zoom lens. For APS-C cameras, the Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II VC HLD is a favorite. Upgrading to a full-frame camera would, however, require you trade in this lens.
Other Nikon D3300 Bundle Accessories
Lighting: this is what is mainly responsible for image quality in photos.
Flashgun for more powerful lighting and the ability to alter the quality of light by tilting and swiveling. Remote triggering also adds to the versatility offered by flashguns. The Nikon Speedlight SB-700 and the Metz 64 AF-1 are notable options.
Flash modifiers for softer, more evenly distributed light. The Lastotlie Ezybox Speed-Lite 2 fits well in front of the flash and is compact for packing.
Protective Skylight/ UV filters these protect the element in the front of the camera with no effect on the final image. It is important to get the right one for the right side of the lens element.
The light reflector reflects light from sources around towards subject to remove any undesired shadows.
Having the right accessories are what make buying the Nikon D3300 bundle worth the extra prices, but you get a lot of useful accessories.
