After receiving a handful of questions regarding entry level DSLRs, I decided to take a closer look at Nikon's D3400. The D3400 is a follow-up the D3300 ... an entry level DSLR which lacks an AA filter - this is a good thing:).

Amazon link to the body and 18-55 only:

Can you please suggest me one? Which one would be the best Entry level DSLR for a noob beginner like me among these 3 mentioned models? Thanks! And great video brother!

I am shopping for my first non-cell phone camera. I watched your review on the Canon Rebel 6. The Canon pictures seemed brighter, more vibrant. The Nikon pictures in this review seemed darker. Is this my perception, something to do with the light or scenery of different days, settings that you used, or some inherent characteristics of the camera? Basically I liked the the more vibrant colors. If that is characteristic of Canon vs. Nikon that would greatly persuade me more towards the Canon. Can you help me in determining the cause of the difference or verify some unique quality to these brands?

Very helpful video and a great channel. I do have a few questions though, How is it for Astro and is the 18-55 good in very low light (astro)? Also how are the long exposures with this camera - rivers and stuff? Also do you think it is a camera that will last - durable? Finally do you think there are any better budget dslr's out there for the same or cheaper price if so what are they? :) Thanks very much any help with these questions from you guys would be greatly appreciated especially the last! Thanks

Hi, amazing video! Very helpful! I do street photography and I wanted to ask you what do you think about the Nikkor 35mm f1.8 AF-S DX? is a good 35mm lens for a 3400D? Would you recommend any other 35mm?

I own this camera and it is great, however I recently discovered that it cannot be tethered via Ian to Adobe Light Room to see photos as they are taken in my studio. For whatever reason, and not to Adobe's fault, but rather Nikon's fault, Nikon didn't include software in this model to support OR. With that being said, this discovery frustrated me. I was wondering if you could give advise on another way to thether this model to a laptop or T.V. monitor, just to be able to see photos, as they are shot on a bigger screen. It is difficult to see the actual noise and crispness looking at just the small screen on camera. If you would produce a video on this subject too, that would be awesome! Thanks, and great review btw

I would love to know if Canon 200D is better or worse than this, because im about to buy a new DSLR. Both have 24MP, but from i heard, the Nikon doesn't have the filter, so it might have a bit more detailed pictures? Altho from the picture reviews, they both look very similar (detail wise)

Hi, I have just come across your videos and have found you so so very helpful.. I have a one year old daughter who is the main reason why I purchased my Nikon D3400 and used to just capture photos of her in sports mode as she is always on the run.. But I played around with my camera (manually) today and I am struggling 😞 I mainly take photo's of her outside underneath the verandah (which gets some natural light but not a lot) and the photos always came up dark, so I would just edit the lighting after I bluetoothed the photos to my phone.. Since I manually progammed my ISO, aperture and shutter speed, I can't seem to get quick, amazing photos of my daughter compared to when it was just on sport mode.. I set my ISO to 100, maximum being 12 000 odd, shutter speed minimum 1/60, continuous servo focus mode, single point AF area mode, matrix metering, and shot in aperture mode.. Can you please recommend what settings you think would help me naturally capture amazing photos of my daughter without having to resort back to the sports mode? I would love to capture images of her without having to edit lighting as well. Thank you in advance!

I'm curious how this camera does with moving kids? I have three kids and trying to get pictures of them can be hard with the cheap camera I have, it's always blurry. I don't like the sit down and smile pics, I love action shots. Will this take clear shots? Also does this have continuous shot? My sister has a camera that will take continuous pics when you press the shutter button. I'm new to more expensive cameras so thank you for the info!
