Nikon’s Entry-Level D3400
Nikon’s new D3400 is the latest in the company’s entry level DSLR series. With the striking picture quality of the previous models, photographers awaited the release of the new camera to see if it lived up to its predecessor’s success.
The new camera sports several specifications that are similar to the previous models, like the EXPEED 4 image processor, 24.2 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and the central imaging pipeline. The EXPEED 4 processor allows for better quality images with higher ISO levels, improved automatic white-balance for more real colours, an increased battery life and altogether quicker photo processing speeds.
What has changed however, is the ISO range which still starts at 100 and now goes up to 25,600 ISO. This means that the camera can capture more light with each image. Nikon has also removed the D3400’s optical low-pass filter.
The camera is aimed at those who are looking to buy a DSLR for the first time. Compact and lightweight too, the D3400 has minimal controls in order to simplify the use for first time owners. You can now also transfer images easily and quickly using Nikon’s new SnapBridge technology, a wireless system that allows you to move images from the camera to your smartphone or other smart devices.
As it is aimed at newbies to photography, the D3400 also has a Guide Mode that offers detailed assistance on how to make appropriate adjustments and capture perfect images.
Nikon has also release four new lenses that are lightweight options, perfect for the D3400. The lenses to choose from are, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G and the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR (vibration reduction), two zoom lenses for everyday use. There are also two lightweight telephoto lenses for long-range photography, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED and the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR.
With prices starting at Rs. 32,000, the Nikon D3400 camera is a great option for those who want to buy their first DSLR.
