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.

Nikon D3400 review: the best entry-level DSLR money can buy

 

It's not perfect, but it's the best buy in its class right now

Light weight and compact ; Great photos

No mic socket ; Screen isn’t a touchscreen

Nikon D3400 review

 

The D3400 is one of Nikon's most popular entry-level DSLRs , one that sticks to a no-frills template. While it maintains compatibility with lots of great Nikon lenses and offers full control over things like exposure and focus, the idea is that it's...

Excellent battery life Compact, light and easy to use Good single-shot AF performance Tiny, quiet kit lens

Lacks touchscreen No microphone port LCD is fixed in place Poor connectivity options

The Nikon D3400 is one of the best entry-level DSLRs you can buy right now. It's not perfect, but what it does do, it does very well. Featuring a beautifully compact body, a solid AF system, huge battery life and very good image quality, the D3400 is...

Nikon D3400 review: A fantastic budget DSLR

 

Small but welcome improvements make the Nikon D3400 the best entry-level SLR on the market

Class-leading image and video quality ; Solid performance ; Competitive price

Controls are relatively basic ; Bluetooth transfers could be more reliable

The D3400 also has competition from compact system cameras (CSCs), but the market for sub-£500 CSCs has dried up in the last couple of years so you’ll probably have to pick up an end-of-life discounted model. Considering that the D3400 costs a mere...

Nikon D3400 review

 

The Nikon D3300 has long been my go-to recommendation for a cheap dSLR, but after two years it's usually time to slap a new coat of paint on consumer products. Nikon's 2016 update to that camera, the D3400, has some small enhancements to bring it up to...

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

  (Rating Hidden)

The Nikon D3400 is a new entry-level camera with a 24Mp sensor in a compact DSLR body. It's a refresh to the D3300 model with built-in Bluetooth and improved battery life. Nikon touts outstanding low-light photos with the D3400, but does it deliver, or...

Nikon D3400 DSLR Review

 

We review the new Nikon D3400, the entry level DSLR from Nikon, with built-in Bluetooth for instant image transfer.

Designed to be an entry-level, easy to use DSLR the D3400 features built-in Bluetooth (but not Wi-Fi) and unfortunately, there are limitations including the inability to shoot remotely, and the camera has less connectivity than the D3300.

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.
