If you are not looking for a camera designed for professionals, then you will be happy to learn that Nikon recently announced its latest offering, and that is the new D3400 DSLR. This is an entry-level model, although with a price tag of $650, you do expect a certain amount of features to help persuade you that this is the perfect beginner camera for you.
The Nikon D3400 specification list is still impressive though, with some of the stand-out features being 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor, Expeed 4 processor, ISO range of 100-25,600, 5-fps continuous shooting, 11-point autofocus system and 1080p video at up to 60 fps.
It’s clear that there is a lacking feature, and that is no 4K recording, although we should expect this with a camera that costs less than $700 to buy.
Try not to let that put you off, as Nikon has included Bluetooth for sharing and transferring files. However, the lack of WiFi might be an issue for some of you. However, it is the line of dedicated lenses that could be the biggest appeal.
If you would like to go for one of the other Nikon D3400 lenses for sale with body, then you have two options, and those are the AF-P DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 G VR lens, although this is the lens that comes part of the package. However, if you want something different, then the AF-P DX Nikkor 70-300mm f4.5/6.3 G ED or the 70-300mm lens. You can find more details on those latter two lenses by heading to DPReview.
