Nikon D3400: A Worthy Successor with SnapBridge Compatibility
Nikon’s newest DSLR is still an entry-level gadget which succeeds the hugely popular D3300. Similar to the predecessor, this device throws in all the important specifications barring the battery module which has been upgraded. Moreover, this DSLR comes with a few nifty enhancements in terms of connectivity. Let us take a closer look at the featured set of attributes:
Nikon D3400 with 18-55mm lens kit version comes with Nikon F Lens and the new stepper motor which offer smoother movement and better and quieter focus. It comes with optical image stabilization and with or without Nikon’s proprietary Vibration Reduction or VR technology and the price can vary accordingly.
Nikon D3400 persists with the 24MP CMOS sensor as seen on the predecessor. The APS-C sensor comes without the optical low-pass filter and boasts of great images. Powering the same is the EXPEED 4 image processor. In terms of maximum resolution, this DSLR supports 6000x4000 pixels. ISO Range for the same is 100-25600. This camera supports RAW and JPEG image formats sans any form of image stabilization. Additional specs include manual and autofocus with 11 focus points and AF assist lamp.
In terms of interfacing, we get a 3-inch TFT LCD panel with 921K dots. Viewfinder coverage for the same is 95 percent. Built-in flashlight is supported in addition to external flashlight, via hot shoe. This camera supports burst shooting at 5fps and Full HD recording at 60-24fps. We get USB 2.0 in addition to built-in wireless support.
This camera misses out on a headphone port and even a microphone port which certainly isn’t the best trait on display. Moreover, Nikon D3400 isn’t environmentally sealed and prone to water based defects.
