Nikon D3400

 

Nikon has a new entry-level DX-format DSLR for 2016. Long live the D3400! Sporting a 24.2-megapixel CMOS image sensor mated to the EXPEED 4 image processing engine, the D3400 is perfect for anyone looking to graduate from point-and-shoot or smartphone...

Nikon D3400 Review

 

The Nikon D3400 is a new entry-level DSLR camera with a 24.2 megapixel DX format APS-C sensor with no anti-aliasing filter. The main improvements to the D3400 are extended battery life and SnapBridge support. Using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE),...

While the extended battery life and Snapbridge support are both nice additions to the new Nikon D3400, it doesn't really offer anything that the previous D300 model did, either in terms of features or design. Indeed, the new model actually offers fewer...

Nikon D3400 Review

 

The Nikon D3400 combines great image quality from its 24-megapixel APS-C sensor with a user-friendly design and good, reliable performance across the board. Some of its capabilities may be lacking, particularly with regard to continuous autofocus,...

Compact DSLR camera body; Excellent image quality; Reliable single-shot autofocus; Good continuous JPEG shooting performance; New kit lens has improved AF; Great value at current prices

SnapBridge is slow and limited; Poor continuous autofocus; No built-in Wi-Fi; Mediocre video features

The Best DSLR for Beginners

 

The Nikon D3400 is the best beginner DSLR camera you can buy—but if you don't need Bluetooth, the older D3300 performs almost as well.

Nikon D3400 review

 

The D3400 is Nikon's latest entry-level DSLR. Announced in August 2016, it comes two and a half years after the best-selling D3300 and like that model is aimed at beginners or those looking for a step-up in quality and control over a point-and-shoot...

SnapBridge 'always on' Bluetooth smartphone connection ; Impressive 1200 shot battery life ; Improved kit lens with faster, quieter Continuous AF in Live view ; Fairly lightweight body for a traditional DSLR

Still no auto exposure bracketing ; Built-in flash less powerful than D3300 ; Lacks the microphone input and anti-dust filter of the D3300 ; Battery can't be charged in-camera ; Fixed screen isn't touch-sensitive

The Nikon D3400 is an update to Nikon's entry-level DSLR, replacing the two year old D3300. The headline new feature is SnapBridge - Nikon's low-power Bluetooth connection that allows continuous image transfer to your smartphone in the background while...

Nikon D3400 review

 

Nikon's most junior DSLR proposition gets a boost with the D3400

Very compact and lightweight body ; Superb battery life ; Good single-shot AF performance ; Very compact and quiet kit lens

No touchscreen ; Lacklustre kit lens performance ; Poor connectivity options

The Nikon D3400 has plenty going for it, with a beautifully compact body, a decent AF system, huge battery life and reliable image quality. It is, however, a familiar case of it currently being priced well above a number of older but better-specified...

Nikon D3400

 

The Nikon D3400 is the company's entry-level model, which is designed to get those who are new to DSLR photography on the bandwagon – and in theory, to potentially make them customers for life.
