Nikon D3400 DSLR with Two Telephoto Lenses

Nikon recently unveiled the D3400 DSLR together with two telephoto lenses under its new AF-P line-up of stabilised silent focussing lenses.  The Nikon D3400, a successor to Nikon’s D3300 is said to be the latest entrants of Nikon to the most reasonably priced segment of DSLR which the Tokyo based imaging giant has to offer.


Though the latest DSLR does not provide a ground breaking renovation on the prevailing D3300, it tends to add a significant new feature to the invention of DSLRs, always on Blue-tooth technology, the low-power, SnapBridge. The huge format image of Nikon D3400 tends to have a resolution of 6000 x 4000 while the smaller format image comes with 2992 x 2000 pixels resolution and supports DCF 2.0, EXIF 2.3 and PictBridge file system.

Moreover it is compatible with SD and UHS-1 compliant SDHC and SDXC memory cards.  The Nikon D3400 features an eye level pentamirror SLR viewfinder having approximately 0.85 x magnifications and comes with an electronically controlled focal plane shutter with vertical-travel. The speed of the shutter is available for users ranging from 1/4000 a second to 30 seconds in steps of 1/3 exposure value.

Nikon D3400 Focused for Learners

The only camera which tends to feature SnapBridge technology of Nikon is the recently introduced D500 that is said to focus on the pro-summer sector of camera consumers.

For the moment, the D3400 is said to be focused for learners and is a good choice to have this feature for Nikon though it seemed to have limited rollout till now.  He is essentially made available to only a few on Android devices.

The iOS rollout has been discussed though not much has occurred yet. The rest is somewhat same like the Nikon D3300.  Nikon D3400 tends to utilise the same 24.2 MP APS-C CMOS sensor and in spite of two year after the D3300, tends to preserves the EXPEED 4 image processor.

Moreover, the Nikon D3400 also tends to avoid the low pass filter that enables marginal increased sharpness.  Besides the alterations the Nikon D3400 alsoseemsto have a lighter body weighing around 395 grams which is quite light for a DSLR. It is a good factor for first time DSLR learners who may not be accustomed to the weight of an interchangeable lens camera.

Better Low Light Performance

Besides this it also gets a higher native ISO range of around 25600 together with prolonged batter life of about 1,200 images with a single charge.

The improved ISO range enables better low light performance and Nikon is anticipating that the inclusion of SnapBridge in the Nikon D3400, users would be urged to purchase it.  Together with the latest camera, there are the new AF-P telephoto lenses which tend to utilise new stepping motor for faster delivery and quieter autofocus.


Both the lenses are said to have marked focal length of 70-300mm, where the distinguishing factor is the Vibration Reduction – VR.It is presumed that the Nikon D3400 would be offered competitively to compete with the entry-segment offering of Canon, the Canon EOS 1300D.
