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:

How do I send videos to my iphone and ipad? I have tried the Nikon Snapbridge app and Nikon WMU app and they both don't work! Please help me!!!! WMU app doesn't work for my Nikon d3400 and Snapbridge doesn't send videos. I'm stuck and confused!

Awesome review! Thinking of purchasing this camera very soon but the Bluetooth connectivity has me a bit worried. I’ll be photo editing on an iPad Pro. How could I get full raw photos on an iPad? Thanks for any help!

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!

you get so many questions thank you for replying.  Last great camera was Canon ae-1 program so off into the dslr world I go.  In your opinion Nikon d3400 versus the d7100?  I'd like to eventually take some wide angle pictures (landscape)  and get a fisheye lense.   Have no problem getting a refurbished camera or used for that matter.  Oh I wear glasses all of the time. eyesight is not the best.

Hey there, I am new here and I have never bought a good camera before. However, I am going on a long trip to different countries so I dont really know which cam is for me. I was between Nikon D3400 and D5300 , then I don't know if a mirrorless could also do (because of them being lighter). What are your thoughts?:) Thanks!

Hi, I'm getting my very first DSLR and I was wondering if you could give me some advice. I don't want anything over $700, but I don't want something overly basic. I do like the sound of the Nikon D3400 but I'm not quite sure. I want something with pretty good image quality but also good video quality; this is one thing I don't like about this camera–it has no external microphone port. If you could recommend any entry-level DSLR from either the Nikon or Canon range, which would it be? Thank you :)

After seeing this video I consider buying Nikon D3400 over Canon T6 BUT I'm wondering if the Bluetooth isn't a problem because I'd really like passing the pictures with nice quality to my phone so do you think it'd be a problem for me? You said something about limited MB but I'm not sure what that means

Nice review. Question: When you shot video, did you have to turn the dial to 'video' mode before pressing the video button? My last dslr was a cannon powershot & it was good. after over a decade, the lens malfunctioned & I'm shopping for a new one. Tough part is getting one with viewfinder rather than just screen. Impossible to find is one with a swivel screen and view finder. I don't care about bluetooth or WIFI. For video on my old camera, I just pressed the video button. A similar price range cannon requires one to turn the dial to video before you could press the record button (insane). I want to be able to take stills and then a video without having to mess with the dial. Another question: You showed the settings for each pic you took. Did the auto mode do that or were you doing it manually? It's a beginner dslr so it should be able to do light changes automatically. I'm curious as how much thinking and studying I would have to do. Thanks

I have a Canon T2i and now a Nikon 3400. The Nikon is very different in its set up, but I was doing okay until I engaged BB focus and then could not get it to go off! I retraced the steps, but no deal. Out of the blue I got my autofocus back, but I would kind of like to know what to do or not do. Any ideas?

How long does battery last when recording video?
Hello. thank you for your video. I live in Miami Beach and photos are one of my hobbies. I am considering buying this camera from Costco (the bundle offer). I take nature photos, specially flowers. I want to be able to take semi professional photos of homes and apartments including wide angle shots. This would be my first camera of this kind. However, after viewing your review I am not sure if this is the camera for me. Should I buy something "higher"? What to you think? Additionally, I am looking to take a photography course here in Miami but I have founded difficult to find. I you or any of your readers know of any good course in photography in the area of Miami that would be amazing. You may contact me at my email if you wish [email protected] thank you, EVE

hi i'm a wanna be photographer and i'm looking at the d3400 for a first camera, i heard you say in your video that you do not reccommend buying the 70-300mm lens, but what are your thoughts on the Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED Lens and is it worth buying it with the 18-55mm lens for a first time photographer or should i save my money?

Hi,, GREAT review. I have been a photographer for around 30 Years so I am NOT a "Newbie" to the World of photography.. my question is this?? I am looking to replace my aged Nikon D90 which I have had for 8 Years and has taken 110,000 shots. I looked at the "Spec" on the D3400 and it is indeed a lot of camera for the money..Plus a nice light weight body (Unlike my D90) Is that a worthy replacement for my Nikon D90 ..OR would I be best off paying the extra money and getting a Nikon D7200.. Thank you.. Once again a first class review.
'MrXelsior' 2 months ago
Can someone please tell my why when I record video in 1080 by 60 (high def) it plays back fine on my d3400. But when I export it to my Macbook pro, it plays "herky-jerky". Like stop-go-stop-go,etc. I admit my macbook pro is 6 years old, but I just updated the RAM to it's fullest capacity. Even when I bring it into Final Cut Pro it usually does the same thing. Not always with 1080 by 30 though.
