Great purchase! Been looking for a new DSLR with the ability to control the shot. I like the value of the bag and additional lens for the price. Packaging was a little bit damaged, although all my anger was turned into happiness by seeing a tremendous gift from Amazon inside the package. Thanks Amazon for a free LowePro camera bag. I'm really in love with the purchase I made. Please read the detailed review below.
- Quality Being an entry-level camera with a modest price tag, this DSLR’s body is made entirely of composite plastic, but that is not a bad thing, the plastic feels good to touch and adds to the camera’s decent build quality. It also helps keep the camera extremely light, weighing mere 395 grams, one can easily carry out long photoshoots with the D3400 without feeling any fatigue. Its screen, controls and everything else is designed to be as simple to use as possible, which is another reason why the D3400 is an excellent choice for a beginner photographer. Switching between different modes with its dial is simple and fast, the 3” display of the camera provides you with all the information that you need about your camera’s settings and makes interacting with the device fairly easy, but it does not have the best brightness levels, making it hard to use the camera in well-lit areas.
- Auto Focus Performance The camera’s performance is pretty much the same as the D3300, its 11 point autofocus works relatively fast as long as you do not switch to live view, it is also pretty easy to understand, and you can quickly select between the four different AF modes provided. One major problem with the AF is that, when using the viewfinder, one can have a hard time spotting the AF “dots” that are meant to act as guides for the user.
- Image Capturing Capability The best way to describe the D3400’s image quality would be; punchy images that manage to please the eyes. The D3400’s image capturing is perfect for beginners since it manages to produce pretty great quality without the user having to do too much, the camera also captures great raw images, which makes it an excellent choice for people who plan on further editing their pictures after capturing them.
- Bluetooth And SnapBridge Perhaps one of the most welcome changes made to the D3400 is the addition of Bluetooth LE, making it possible to connect the camera with Nikon’s SnapBridgeapp and make image transfer and browsing a whole lot easier. The SnapBridgeapp lets you browse through all the pictures that are on your camera’s memory, it also allows one to either have photos transferred to their phone as they are taken (remote photography) or opt to download selected pictures onto their phone.
- Video Recording Since the new lens kit has a better motor installed in it, its zooming in and zooming out have become much less jittery and produce lesser noise, further adding to the smoothness of the camera’s recording and also reducing background noise that can be quite noticeable in the D3300. Its image processor and 24mp sensor enable the camera to capture well-saturated colors in JPEG files.
- Conclusion Overall, the D3400 is a pretty decent camera when one considers what it has to offer at its price level, the camera manages to capture great quality JPEG and raw images, has a decent sensor and image processor that not only provides excellent rendering capability but also makes capturing well-balanced images easy for beginners and amateurs. One can say that the D3400 is one of the best choices out there for a well-priced, beginner DSLR.
To sum it all up, the D3400 is, when compared to other entry-level cameras, a great device that leaves a bit to be desired, its image capturing is bound to be more than satisfactory for people who have been relying on their smartphone cameras. While its video recording is not entirely dependable, it does manage to get the job done by capturing fluid footage at 1080p.
The camera’s build quality and design meet expectations, and its lightweight body makes it a joy to use, and its SnapBridge compatibility acts as icing on top of a great value cake, making file transfer management a lot simpler. The bottom line is that if you want to capture decent photos and do not really plan to grow as a photographer, then the Nikon D3400 is a pretty good choice.
First thing first which I don't find in any reviews up to the mark so far, What Comes in the box :-
1) Camera 2) 18-55mm Lens 3) 70-300mm lens 4) Warranty Card for Camera and Lenses 5) Battery 6) Charger 7) 16 GB Class 10 Memory Card 8) Nikon Camera Pouch 9) Tutorial DVD
Everything is perfect with this product. Packaging and On-time delivery was also Perfect. Can' expect more from Amazon.
I registered my Camera and both the Lenses on Nikon Support site, without any hassle.
The only problem I faced was with the Snapbridge , Cant Pair my Android Device to my Camera even after several attempts, but I suppose that is the Problem With the Nikon SnapBridge Android App, not with Amazon.
In a Nutshell, A Perfect Camera for the Beginners like me, Worth Every Penny of what you paid.
Go For it Blindly, if you are serious about Photography .
