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.
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.
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.
