Pics are delightful to watch as DSLR has its own charm. Also as it can be synced with your mobile phone via snapbridge app, it gives immediate access to the photos on your mobile with automatic size adjustment. If you are looking for an entry level DSLR, you can bet on this product. Still exploring various other features, Amazon packing! Well amazing as usual!
My battery charger stopped charging within 1 month and started blinking continously.... Defective product delivered in the name of offer. Moreover the charger and battery were not covered under warranty.
People who have half knowledge of the product (D3400) will say some following drawbacks of D3400. - - > 1. D3400 doesn't have an electronic image sensor cleaning feature. 2. The external mic support has been removed in D3400. 3. Snapbridge sharing only allows you to share resized photos of 2 MP. 4. The range of built-in flash of D3400 is weaker than D3300. 5. The battery backup of D3400 is more than D3300 only because of the poor flash.
LET ME CLARIFY THESE SENSELESS POINTS.
First of all.. compare the photo quality of D3300 and D3400 by using the same Manual Settings and the same Lens. Please do compare and you will find D3400 gives amazing colours and details in images than D3300.
Second thing.. please use your camera in clean environment and you will never need to clean the image sensor. Image sensor is far behind from the lens. Behind the lens there is the mirror, Behind the mirror there is the shutter. And then again behind the shutter there is the image sensor. So no need of Sensor cleaning electronically, except you open the mirror and shutter and keep the body in dusty surroundings. I don't think anyone does this.
Thirdly, instead of using external mic, you can use manual dubbing of audio while processing your video which gives more better and amazing results, than using an external mic.
Fourth point.. You can increase ISO to snap a night landscape without a flash. You only need a flash if the subject is close and the light is low. So the point of weaker flash range is pointless.
Fifth.. I don't know who told anyone that Snapbridge only allows you to share images of 2 MB / 2 MP. I think such people don't know to read English properly. There are actually two options.. 1. Sharing 2 MP image 2. Sharing image of Original Size..
Sixth.. D3400 has battery backup of 1200 shots in contrast to 700 shots of D3300. For your info, battery life is tested without taking flash and in same environment. And of course, they don't clean sensor after taking each photo while testing. So the comment on battery life is senseless.
Finally the last point, as by some comments seen here, they mean to say that Nikon has not upgraded the model and in fact downgraded it. And it should be named as D3250 instead of D3400. Lol.. before writing such reviews on a website, they should make sure that they have a complete knowledge of the topic.
