The Nikon D3400 is the company’s latest entry-level DSLR, aimed at beginners or those looking for a step-up in quality and control over a point-and-shoot camera without breaking the bank.
The D3400 shares a great deal with the earlier D3300, including the 24 Megapixel APSC sensor, 11-point AF system, 5fps shooting and 1080 video up to 60p, but the big new feature is SnapBridge, Nikon’s wireless technology which exploits Bluetooth to maintain a low-power wireless link with smartphones for easy unattended image transfer.
Before the D3400, you chose your smartphone camera for convenience. Zooming was clumsy. Shooting in low light was nearly impossible. Capturing fast action was a game of luck. But after the D3400, you’ll see that you were compromising image quality. That some of the greatest photos happen when the light is low. That fast action can be frozen in perfect clarity. And that a camera and a smartphone can work together in harmony to make the photos you share absolutely amazing.
Nikon’s also claiming an increased battery life up to 1200 shots per charge. Find out if it’s the camera for you in my Nikon D3400 review!
