Nikon D3400 - A full-featured, compact DSLR
In yet another exciting new announcement from Nikon, comes the new entry-level D3400, a DSLR with something to offer the absolute beginner, to the more advanced enthusiast. At the centre of this new release is an 24MP CMOS sensor, which in move previously seen in higher-end Nikon cameras, has no optical low-pass filter, resulting in images of higher clarity and sharpness. Nikon have installed a proven performer in its expeed 4 processor, keeping things ticking along steadily - important when considering the 5 frames per second continuous shooting - and allowing for excellent low light performance, with an expanded ISO range of 100-25600.
Externally the D3400 is much the same as it's predecessors, packing loads of features and performance into a compact and lightweight package . The 395 gram body allows you to compose your images either via an optical viewfinder or 3-inch Lcd screen. An important improvement has been made to battery life, which now sees you being able to capture an impressive 1200 shots per charge. This advancement will really be appreciated when trying your hand at shooting video, which is available at 1080p and up to 60 frames per second.
Introducing Nikon SnapBridge
Arguably the most significant new feature of the Nikon D3400 is the addition of Nikon's Snapbridge and Bluetooth low energy technology. This technology allows for remarkably quick and easy connectivity to smart devices, and therefore quick and easy transfer of images. The Bluetooth connection between smart device and camera is constant and can remain intact even when your camera is off, affording you the highest level of wireless connectivity yet, greatly benefiting image sharing, an integral part of modern life.
