Nikon D3400

 

The Nikon D3400 is a solid entry-level SLR camera with wireless transfer capability and a Guide Mode to help you get better shots.

Compact. 24MP image sensor. Includes lens. Solid autofocus and high ISO performance. 5.1fps continuous shooting. Guide Mode for beginners. Bluetooth wireless file transfer.

Fixed, non-touch LCD. Pentamirror viewfinder. Limited buffer when shooting Raw. Omits microphone input. Video autofocus not as advanced as some mirrorless competitors.

If you're tired of getting blurry low-light images from your smartphone, or simply want a small SLR that's easy to use and won't break the bank, the D3400 is a strong choice. The included kit lens is a solid starter option, and you'll have access to...

Nikon D3400 Review

 

We've been testing the recently updated D3400. Though the updates are modest, the real question is can the camera still hold its weight against the competition?

The Nikon D3400 is a bit better cheap dSLR than before

 

With decent low-light photos and a smoother-to-focus for movies kit lens, the D3400 remains a first-dSLR favorite.

The Nikon D3400 delivers the image quality and speed that a first-time dSLR buyer should expect.

A lot of the small annoyances from previous models remain, including tiny autofocus points in the viewfinder and a nonpersistent self-timer mode. Plus, its Bluetooth-only wireless solution isn't very good.

Very good photo quality for its class plus performance fast enough to capture kids and pets make the Nikon D3400 A solid choice for a first dSLR.

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

 

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 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,...

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...
