Nikon has updated its entry-level line of DSLRs with the new D3400 DSLR, which features a familiar 24.2MP DX-format CMOS sensor and adds SnapBridge for easier connectivity to mobile devices.
Nikon D3400 Key Features
- 24.2MP DX CMOS Sensor
- EXPEED 4 Image Processor
- SnapBridge Connectivity
- ISO 100-25,600

Nikon SnapBridge uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to create an “always on” connection with a compatible smart device to facilitate quick and easy sharing of images. This is a crucial area that camera manufacturers need to nail in order to keep users shooting with higher-end cameras instead of the their phone.
The new Nikon D3400 kits will ship in September 2016, starting at $649.95. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
