Nikon officially unveiled D3400 DSLR

 


Nikon officially unveiled D3400 DSLR. The Nikon D3400 is a newest entry-level DSLR. The new DSLR is a successor to the D3300 and D3200 cameras which come before.

The new camera comes with some changes than before. The all new D3400 comes with company’s Snapbridge software And another main change from the previous cameras is that the new one comes with always-on Bluetooth Low Energy connections. It will lets the camera automatically transfer images to the user’s smartphone. That is, the new camera does not required Wi-Fi facility.

The Snapbridge was introduced with the D500. Its an expensive prosumer DSLR, earlier this year at CES, and so far the feature has seen a slow rollout. The D500 was released earlier this summer, but Snapbridge only works with about a dozen Android phones (with some obvious absences like Samsung’s S7 and S7 Edge), and an iOS version of the app has still not shipped.

Nikon D3400 is a bit lighter than the D3300. Considering the Nikon D3300, it was already 30 percent smaller and 25 percent lighter than the D3200. Nikon says the D3400 will weigh 395g, which would be 15 percent lighter than the D3300.

The D3400 comes with the same 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor as on D3300. The camera also employs the same EXPEED 4 image processor found in the D3300. Snapbridge is a welcome addition, but considering the D3300 was announced over two years ago, it’s disappointing to see such a similar camera. While the D3400 isn’t a big overhaul, some of the guts are getting upgrades. The top end of the ISO range is getting stretched to 25,600, and the battery will last almost twice as long as it did in the D3300 — up to 1,200 shots, according to Nikon.

Nikon D3400 will available in Red and Black colors with quiet-focusing 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 lens. The camera will comes with a price tag of $649. The sales will begins in September. Customers can be able to buy a version of kit with no image stabilization for about $50 less. Nikon also announcing a new quiet-focusing 70-300mm f4.5-6.3 telephoto lens. It will come with or without image stabilization. Nikon says that at the period of selling, the pack will contain a D3400 kit with the image-stabilized 18-55mm and the non image-stabilized 70-300mm lens for $999.
