Nikon D300s, the upgrade to the D300

Nikon introduces the Nikon D300s as an upgrade to the sucessfull mid-level DSLR D300. The main differences:

  • 720p HD video with autofocus while recording (a major improvement)
  • socket for external microphone
  • quiet drive mode (a long awaited feature!)
  • improved continuous shooting (7fps vs. 6fps)
  • Live View and Info buttons
  • own ‘OK’ button in multi controller
  • virtual horizon
  • SD card slot in addition to existing CF slot (probably a concession to upgraders)

All in all, not a major upgrade but a good one!
