Nikon D3400 DSLR Camera features:
Crystal clear and colour accurate imagery - 24.2 megapixel sensor with EXPEED 4 processor
The Nikon D3400's 24.2 Megapixel sensor features no optical low pass filter. This means that there is no filter softening images, and the large megapixel count can capture as much detail as possible.
The sensor data is handled by Nikon's intelligent EXPEED 4 processor. This processor features several intelligent algorithms to provide colour accurate images and to reduce image noise.
Great in low light - ISO 100-25600 and pop-up flash
The D3400 features a wide light sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600. This gives the camera enough versatility to ensure it performs well in low or dim light shooting. A nifty built-in pop-up flash, or optional flashgun, also keeps you out of the dark, so you can keep on shooting.
Crisp Full HD video recording with face-detection and subject-tracking
The Nikon D3400 not just excels at taking great stills, but also features Full HD 1920 x 1080p movie recording. Full HD and HD can be recorder at smooth frame rates up to 60 fps in wide supported MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format, and all videos are recorded with stereo sound from a built in monaural microphone with sensitivity adjustment.
Full time autofocus with face-detection and subject-tracking can be used during recording, keeping your subjects sharp and in-focus.
Easy to use - Guide Mode, intuitive controls, 3.0" LCD, smart Auto Mode
The D3400 features a Guide Mode that shows you exactly how to adjust the camera settings so you can capture great shots. By simply following the instructions moving subjects can be frozen or blurred, and images can be edited in a variety of ways.
The on-board auto mode incorporates several algorithms to try and figure out what your subject is to determine where it should focus, and how it should expose the picture. This makes taking good looking pictures easy as it takes a lot of technical expertise out of photography.
Intuitive controls and a bright 3-inch LCD display makes operating the camera easy, so you can spend less time navigating and more time shooting.
Ready for action - Multi-CAM 1000 autofocus sensor and 5 fps continuous shooting.
The D3400 incorporates Nikon's Multi-CAM 1000 autofocus sensor to provide quick and accurate focus from 11 AF points with subject and face tracking. The autofocus also works in a variety of lighting conditions from -1 to +19 EV.
When shooting sports or fast moving subjects it might be quite difficult to capture the right moment. For this reason the D3400 features a fast continuous shooting burst rate of 5 frames per second.
RAW file shooting - Compressed 12-bit NEF (RAW)
The Nikon D3400 can capture stills in 12-bit NEF RAW format. Raw files stores more image data and provides better image editing in photo editing software. Adjustments where RAW files accelerate includes dynamic range, noise reduction, colour balance, and white balance.
Fantastic battery life - approximately 1200 shots per charge
The Nikon D3400 features a fantastic battery life of up to 1200 shots per charge so you can keep on shooting for longer.
Share every moment - Bluetooth connectivity
The Nikon D3400 features built-in bluetooth connectivity so you can easily transfer stills to your phone for easy sharing*. Additionally the camera can also automatically transfer 2MP images as you shoot*.
* Requires the Nikon SnapBridge App on a compatible device
