Nikon D3400 Review

 
3.8
Verdict: The Nikon D3400 is a solid camera all around, but its main benefit over other options today is the impressively low price. At $400 including a kit lens, it is very hard to match the value you get out of this camera.

Verdict: SnapBridge App Requirements: Android 5.0 or later or 6.0.1 or later. A device with Bluetooth 4.0 or later (i.e., a device that supports Bluetooth Smart Ready/Low Energy) is required.

4.0
Pros: Light weight and compact, Great photos
Cons: No mic socket, Screen isn't a touchscreen
Verdict: The D3400 was a little pricey at launch, but now its price has fallen it's a superb starting point for anyone new to DSLRs. It's easy to use, has excellent image quality and of course it's compatible with an enormous number of high quality lenses.

Nikon D3400

 
4.5
Pros: Compact DSLR camera body; Excellent image quality; Reliable single-shot autofocus; Good continuous JPEG shooting performance; New kit lens has improved AF; Great value at current prices
Cons: SnapBridge is slow and limited; Poor continuous autofocus; No built-in Wi-Fi; Mediocre video features
Verdict: The Nikon D3400 combines great image quality from its 24-megapixel APS-C sensor with a user-friendly design and good, reliable performance across the board. Some of its capabilities may be lacking, particularly with regard to continuous autofocus, video and its new SnapBridge support, but compared...

Nikon D3400 review

 
4.0
Verdict: Ever since its popular D40 model back in 2006, Nikon has done well to dismantle the idea of a DSLR needing to be a large, cumbersome machine. Of course, since then the company has released many even more compact mirrorless 1-series cameras aimed at a junior audience, although it's maintained its...

Nikon D3400 review

 
4.0
Pros: Small and easy to use, Generous range of exposure modes, Provides access to Nikon's huge lens range, Excellent image quality
Cons: Currently a little pricey compared to the D3300, Removal of external microphone jack
Verdict: The Nikon D3400 is Nikon's latest entry-level DSLR and succeeds the D3300 that came out in 2014. Despite the two-year gap between the two models, there doesn't initially appear to be all that much to separate them, at least not in terms of their key specs.

Pros: Compact and lightweight, Very good ISO performance, Bluetooth for file transfers, Improved battery life
Cons: Only a minor refresh of the D3300, No Wi-Fi, Display washes out under direct sunlight
Verdict: Nikon has long held a solid position in the entry-level DSLR segment with its D3xxx series of cameras. For a while now, the Nikon D3300 has been the go-to choice for many, since it offers much better features and performance for the price than Canon's 1200D.

Nikon D3400 review: A fantastic budget DSLR

 
5.0
Pros: Class-leading image and video quality, Solid performance, Competitive price
Cons: Controls are relatively basic, Bluetooth transfers could be more reliable
Verdict: Digital SLR is a relatively mature technology, so finding something new and exciting to put into entry-level models isn't easy. It's debatable whether Nikon has risen to this challenge with the D3400.

Nikon D3400 DSLR Review: SnapBridge Wireless Connectivity in an Affordable DSLR

Verdict: My contention has always been that a real live camera affords superior image quality over any smartphone. But you know that already, especially when it comes to optical options, low-light capability, high ISO, video capability, and, perhaps most importantly, the experience of being able to see what...

Verdict: Nikon makes DSLRs with two types of sensor – full-frame and APS-C. The new D3400 is Nikon's most entry-level camera, and takes on the smaller APS-C chip to keep costs down – Nikon calls this its DX range.

Nikon D3400 Camera Review: Superior Shooter for Beginners

 
4.0
Pros: Great image quality, Speedy performance, Excellent battery life, Good in low light, Easy transfer of images to mobile devices, Solid set of practical and creative features
Cons: No external microphone jack, Lack of dust-cleaning mechanism, No auto-exposure bracketing
Verdict: Nikon ' s latest entry-level DSLR, the 24 - megapixel D3400 , may not seem like much of an upgrade , and in some ways, it ' s not. In fact, it ' s missing a couple of features that were standard on its D3300 predecessor, such as a microphone jack and a dust-cleaning mechanism for the sensor.

Nikon D3400 Review

 
4.0
Verdict: The Nikon D3400 is an update to Nikon's entry-level DSLR, replacing the two year old D3300. The headline new feature is SnapBridge – Nikon's low-power Bluetooth connection that allows continuous image transfer to your smartphone in the background while you shoot.

3.8
Verdict: The D3400 left a bit to be desired considering that this is supposed to be an updated version of the D3300. With the removal of the in-body sensor cleaning and the external mic port we expected there to be a few more updates to the D3400 and, well, we just didn't get them.

Nikon D3400

 
3.8
Pros: The Nikon D3400 delivers the image quality and speed that a first-time dSLR buyer should expect
Cons: A lot of the small annoyances from previous models remain, including tiny autofocus points in the viewfinder and a nonpersistent self-timer mode. Plus, its Bluetooth-only wireless solution isn't very good
Verdict: The Nikon D3300 has long been my go-to recommendation for a cheap dSLR, but after two years it's usually time to slap a new coat of paint on consumer products. Nikon's 2016 update to that camera, the D3400, has some small enhancements to bring it up to date, but nothing vital.

5.0
Verdict: Great camera, lightweight, many features. I upgraded from a D5000 and the only complaint about this camera is that it doesn't have a rotating view screen. That was helpful for taking selfies. Other than that, I'm very pleased with the camera.

NIKON D3400 DSLR Camera with DX 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 VR Lens

 
5.0
Pros: Got due to its cheapness for being a pro like camera, for pros or beginners, quality and software is real good, its a Nikon! Cant fault anything regarding the build. best part is the snap bridge feature, the higher models support WiFi, that has to be annoyingly switched over in settings, Bluetooth...
Cons: Wouldn't say it was a beginner camera, I found it quite hard to understand, even with the on-board manual and in auto, everything really needs to be set up different, being a beginner this doesn't help much, had to get a pro to set up for me, just to get started, me, personally would of been better...

Great photos

 
5.0
Verdict: Love the camera itself and the features, the 18mm-55 mm lens that comes with it is a bit of a disappointment. Requires more manual focus as the lens has to be unlocked before use and does not focus well on macro items . Overall takes good photos and maintains true colours in correct settings.
