Nikon Announces D3400 Entry-Level DSLR With SnapBridge Support
Highlights
  • The camera features Bluetooth for sharing files with your smartphone
  • The D3400 ships with a new 18-55mm AF-P DX NIKKOR lens
  • The camera and kit lens will be available early September for $649.95

Nikon has announced the D3400, which will replace the highly popular D3300 in the entry-level DSLR space. The new camera will go up against Canon's 1300D (Review), which also caters to the beginner segment. The camera will be available from September with the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR kit lens for $649.95 (approximately Rs. 43,600).

The biggest addition to the camera is support for Nikon's SnapBirdge for quickly transferring photos to a connected device like a smartphone or tablet. The D3400 uses Bluetooth Low Energy to sync with your device. Sadly, there's no Wi-Fi present here. Battery life is also supposed to have improved as the camera now boasts of almost 1,200 shots on a single charge, which is big improvement over its predecessor.

The rest of the features remain pretty much the same. We have a 24-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor mated to the company's Expeed 4 image processor and no optical low-pass filter, for crisper shots. The camera offers an ISO range of 100-25600, 5fps burst shooting and maximum shutter speed of 1/4000sec. You can do 1080p video recording at 60fps however there's no support for 4K video. GPS is also something that's still absent. One thing that we found missing is support for an external microphone, which was present in the D3300.

The Nikon D3400 appears to be just a mild upgrade of the outgoing model and we would have liked to see more features added, especially considering its launch price. We'll have to wait and see when and how Nikon India positions this camera in our market.
