The time is now. Shoot brilliantly, share instantly with the D3400.
The D3400 makes it spectacularly easy to shoot and share DSLR-quality images. Nikon’s SnapBridge¹ keeps the camera connected to your smart device via Bluetooth®² so you can actually sync photos as you shoot. Pick up your phone and the photos are there, ready to share: no fuss, no waiting.
And these aren’t just any photos. The large 24.2 MP DX-format sensor delivers outstanding low-light results and works together with your NIKKOR lens to achieve artistic-looking background blur. Guide Mode is there to help you develop your photographic skills, while the high-capacity battery ensures the D3400 is always ready to light up your feed.

BLOW YOUR FRIENDS AWAY: DSLR IMAGE QUALITY

With the D3400 in your hands, it’s easy to create high-quality images that never fail to impress. Move beyond snapshots and revel in the freedom to achieve dazzling images in low light or to create portraits with smooth background blur. Whether you shoot photos or movies, the large 24.2 megapixel DX-format sensor works with Nikon’s powerful EXPEED 4 image processor and your NIKKOR lens to ensure richly detailed results. The wide ISO light-sensitivity range of 100 to 25600 means you can capture clear results, even in the near-dark of a gig, or when out on a romantic evening walk. Combine all this with the camera’s always-on connectivity, and you’re free to shoot images you’ll be proud to share. Instantly.

SHARE INSTANTLY WITH SNAPBRIDGE¹: THE CONSTANT CONNECTION WITH YOUR SMART DEVICE

Light up your social feeds with DSLR-quality images in seconds! Nikon’s game-changing SnapBridge utilises Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) technology² to let the D3400 maintain a constant, low-power link with your smartphone or tablet. Connecting the camera to your smart device is simple. Once it’s done, the connection is always on. The camera can synch photos to your smart device as you shoot, from wherever you are, without you having to reconnect each time. You don’t need to worry about draining your camera’s battery and you can continue to use your smart device without interruption. SnapBridge works in the background to transfer your images. Simply pick up your smart device and your photos will be there: images synced while you shoot are automatically re-sized so they’re easy to review and quick to upload to social media. The camera can even sync shots to your smart device while it’s in sleep mode. The imaging power of the D3400 lets you create content your followers can’t get enough of. SnapBridge lets you share it right there in the moment.

TAKE BETTER IMAGES EVERYWHERE: THE SMALL DSLR THAT KEEPS ON SHOOTING

Small enough to grab and go, the lightweight D3400 is a brilliant camera with which to create unforgettable high-definition photos and movies. You can shoot for longer and capture up to 1200 shots on one charge³ thanks to the camera’s low-energy design and the high-capacity battery. The large 7.5 cm (3.0 in) high-resolution LCD monitor lets you compose or review shots and apply special effects in perfect clarity. And wherever you are, the in-camera Guide Mode is right there to offer step-by-step assistance should you want it. If you’re new to DSLR photography, or want to learn more, Guide Mode is the ultimate assist: like having an expert by your side, this mode shows you exactly how to adjust the camera settings so you can capture great photos and movies.

THE NIKON DSLR ADVANTAGE: PRECISION AND BEAUTY

It’s only when you use a Nikon DSLR that you get the speed, precision and handling to shoot so brilliantly, so easily. Whether you’re up close or shooting from afar, the camera’s razor-sharp autofocus (AF) system will quickly lock onto your subject and keep it in focus. When the action starts, the D3400 can shoot at a swift 5 fps, capturing five beautiful images for every second. Legendary NIKKOR lenses consistently deliver shots that explode with colour and clarity. And Nikon’s world-renowned ergonomics ensure key controls are easily accessible. Thanks to the camera’s optical viewfinder, composing photos is much more rewarding than when shooting with a smartphone or compact camera. This is when photography really feels like photography: put your eye to the viewfinder and you get a clear view through the lens. The viewfinder blocks out sunlight and distractions so you can focus on your subject. Shooting through the viewfinder also means you maintain a stable hold on the camera and can achieve steadier shots, especially when shooting distant subjects with a longer lens.

GO CINEMATIC: FULL HD MOVIES

With the D3400, shooting photos is only half the fun. When the occasion calls for video, the camera’s D-Movie function lets you record smooth, finely detailed Full HD videos at frame rates up to 50p/60p. Continuous autofocus keeps footage perfectly sharp when the action gets going. And you can easily film street scenes at night, or record the fun at indoor parties, thanks to the camera’s wide ISO light-sensitivity range. If you want to add a little drama, Nikon’s range of DX NIKKOR lenses make it easy to create cinematic-looking movies that will be the envy of anyone you show them to. Shoot with a fast DX prime NIKKOR lens like the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G and enjoy the chance to put your subject in the spotlight against beautiful background blur. Shoot with the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm kit lens, and you can capture video footage with virtually no drive noise.

GET CREATIVE: IN-CAMERA SPECIAL EFFECTS AND PICTURE CONTROLS

The D3400 is well equipped to help you get creative. Ten different in-camera effects make it easy to capture images with an artistic touch. Simply choose the effect you want to apply before you shoot. The in-camera retouch menu gives you the freedom to quickly add atmospheric effects afterwards. And for more advanced options, you can use in-camera Picture Controls to fine-tune settings like contrast and saturation for images that look just the way you want them to. You can also crop your shots on the spot, simply by pressing the ‘i’ button during zoom playback. And the camera’s SnapBridge connectivity lets you take advantage of your smartphone or tablet to continue the creative process. With seamless photo syncing, it’s easier than ever to review your creations on your smart device, or edit your images further in your favourite app.

YOUR NIKON DSLR: THE BEGINNING OF YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC ADVENTURES

When you own a Nikon DSLR, you don’t just own a camera. You have the chance to explore a whole new world of photography. From legendary NIKKOR lenses to easy-to-use Nikon flash units and more, your DSLR is part of an endlessly expandable system that can grow with you. The quality of NIKKOR lenses is a key advantage of a Nikon DSLR over every other type of camera, and the D3400 is compatible with a wide range of DX-format NIKKORs⁴, which cover just about every possible shooting situation. Use a fast prime lens for beautiful background blur, a telephoto lens for distant subjects, or a wide-angle lens for dramatic composition. When you’re ready to explore the creative potential of light, Nikon’s acclaimed Speedlights make it easy to do so. These portable flash units make it simple to diffuse or soften light, add impact to daylight images, enhance twilight shots or expose subject detail in backlit situations.
