Nikon D3400 vs Nikon D3300 - 5 Key Differences

Hey whats up everyone, my names Chris Winter and today I’m going to explain in a simple way, the 5 key differences between the brand new Nikon D3400 and last years model, the D3300.

But anyway, let’s get started.

So I want to first begin with the smaller details that you might not have noticed at first, starting with the weight of these cameras. From afar they both look pretty similar, but interestingly enough, the new D3400 is actually lighter than the older D3300 even though they’ve now included the new Snapbridge system. 430 grams compared to 395grams might not seem like a big deal, but when you’re carrying your camera around for 9 hours a day, you’ll appreciate the lighter weight.

Headphone Jack
So if you do like taking a lot of video with your cameras, the older D3300 might still be the better bet for you. That’s because on the side here the D3300 has a dedicated microphone jack, whereas on the new D3400, it’s been removed. For most people who just use their camera to take photos, this isn’t going to be a big deal, but if you do know that you want to take video with better sound, the D3300 will be the best choice for you.

One of the big new features that Nikon was touting with the D3400 is it’s inclusion of it’s Snapbridge technology. So this is includeded in higher end cameras like the D500, which I reviewed a few months back, and it essentially allows you to wirelessly transfer your photos to your phone. Now it’s not included in the older D3300, so if you know you want to upload to places like Facebook and instagram with your DSLR, the D3400 will be the way to go.

Of course one thing thats important to both you and me is price and as you’d expect, being the newer camera, the D3400 is more expensive than the older version. But it’s not as much as you’d probably think. The D3300 comes in at just under $500 at the moment n Amazon with the 18-55mm kit lens, wheres the D3400 comes in at just $50 more. To me, that’s not a whole lot more considering you’re getting bluetooth built in.

Battery Life
And lastly, and probably the least talked about new feature of the new D3400 is it’s improved battery life. And to me this is a pretty huge deal. The new D3400 now has a battery life of over 1200 shots, doubling the battery life of the old D3300. Theres not many more annoying things than when your battery runs out, especially at a wedding or something similar, so that to me is a huge win for the D3400 and something I’d definitely take into consideration when thinking about which camera you want to buy.

So they were my top 5 differences between the D3300 and the new D3400.

Hi Chris, my boy just bought a d3400 and a Rode external mic, he's in the US at uni and I'm here in the UK. He's just realized the d3400 has not got a 3.5mm external mic socket. So my question is could he use a cheap mini usb to 3.5mm socket adaptor cable, so the cable plugs into the cameras mini usb socket and the Rode mic plugs into the 3.5mm socket on the other end of the adaptor cable. Would this work to pic up the sound from the external mic...?

'edwardschlosser1' 1 year ago
The D3300 is the better camera, even at the same price (which they are now on eBay). Here is why...The D3300 has ultrasonic cleaning. The D3400 does NOT. The D3300 has a jack for an external mic. The D3400 does not. The batteries and power consumption are IDENTICAL, except the D3400 has a piss-poor flash with half the shooting distance. This is how Nikon increased the battery life, because battery life testing involves a specific amount of flash shooting. The sensors are the same. The picture quality is the same. Smart phones (those expensive gadgets that morons buy) are required to use a remote wireless shutter release with the D3400. The D3300 has a dedicated remote wireless shutter release similar to the one used with the N65 and N75 film cameras. Yes, the D3400 will weigh slightly less, but that's because they put less into it, and you get less out of it. Nikon pulled out the most important feature in the D3300 to make it weigh less, the sensor cleaner. I spent a fraction of the cost of my favorite camera, a Nikon N90, and my best camera for black and white is a 1936 Speedex B2. When I spend $400-$500 I expect the product to last 20 years, not 2. You will regret buying the D3400 when the sensor is all crapped up in a year or two. But that is Nikon's way to get you into the 5000 series.

D3400 has not microphone connector and if you use the built-in , it récords the sounds of the camera. 3300 is better.

Jon Tanpoco
'Jon Tanpoco' 1 year ago
I learned more by reading the comments... 1. D3300 has sensor cleaning, stronger flash, mic jack 2. D3400 has double the battery life, snapbridge (wifi/bluetooth) 3. D3400 is lighter, a little more expensive by about $30 to $50 4. D3400 can go up to ISO 25600... But you won't ever use that anyway For the battery life, buy a decent powerbank. Do you really need snapbridge or can you wait to upload? Heavy camera? Get a strap.

When choosing between the D3300 vs. D3400, is it particularly concerning that the D3400 has no sensor cleaning feature?

Surprisingly, the D3400's sensor surpassed the D5500 and just behind the D7200 by DXOmark. But the loss of headphone jack and ultrasonic cleaner makes it disappointing 😥
'Andrea' 1 year ago
This D3400 is an unnecessary upgrade, depowered flash to increase the battery, the automatic sensor cleaning is eliminated. The picture quality is the same. Buy the D3300, it is still the best entry level SLR

With the addition of the WiFi and the extended battery life, you can overcome the obstacle of not having the external mic jack. Especially since the WiFi SD cards make up the $50 differnce you pay for the camera itself. The only drawback I see Is the external mic issue, but I don't shoot a lot of video.

I would probably get the D3400, because as a car photographer, being able to take quick shots and being able to get them onto my phone almost right away would be a huge bonus. Considering the price difference, I think that the option to use wifi is well worth the extra $50 or so. Thank you for making this video and your other camera comparison videos as they have helped me understand and learn more things about photography than I originally got from just using my phone! Now I just have to come up with the money to put towards my hobby!
