Nikon D3400 review: The D3400's a bit better cheap dSLR than its predecessor -- but just a bit
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. It remains a great val...

Amazing value for the money
The Nikon D3400 with the new 18-55mm and 70-300mm AF-P lenses cannot be beat at the current price ($500). The D3400 camera body and compact and light for a DSLR. The 18-55mm lens is what you would expect from a kit lens and has VR (vibration reduction, the Nikon version of image stabilization). The ...

Don’t listen to the negative reviews, those people don’t have a clue.
This is a fantastic entry level DSLR. I’ve had mine for almost a year now and wanted to get a lot of use out of it before I wrote a review. First off, there’s a lot of people saying the D3400 is a “downgrade” compared to the D3300, and they don’t have a clue what they’re talking about. One of their ...

Nikon D3400 Users Guide
You are recording video at the settings you set in the Menu setting for Movie settings. Now Auto-Focus Auto-Focus is not going to be very good inside this camera. This is where you are going to want to go ahead and get in the manual focus and go ahead and do that

Great starter camera that I may never upgrade...
I am very new to using DSLRs. This is really my first "big boy" camera and I don't know if I will ever need to upgrade. I primarily use this for the different events that my school hosts (Sports, Drama, Conventions, etc). It comes with enough "auto" features to help you gradually get familiar with p...

This camera with a better lens will get you far better images than a ...
Did a s-tone of research on this. Unless you need a "feature" from the D5500 or D7200 or D7500 this is the camera to buy hands down. Has the same imaging chip and lenses as the others, so 100% same picture. This camera with a better lens will get you far better images than a D7500 with the standard ...

Great camera and 18-55mm kit lens, the 70-300mm lens lacks VR, so get one with VR and save $100 bucks by not getting this one
The D3400 and the kit lens I love, the 70-300 DX lens, not so much. The D3400 is a great entry level DSLR, it's usable at high ISO in low light settings, great for outdoor photography with the kit lens, the kit lens is stabilized with VR technology so you can use it for 1080P 60FPS video recording a...
