If the pictures you take with your smart device leave you wanting more, just wait until you get your hands on the D3400. Images of indoor gigs and parties capture the best moments with minimal blur. Majestic landscape shots taken while hiking stay tack sharp even after aggressive cropping. Impressive portraits make your subjects stand out against beautifully soft backgrounds. Zooming in on distant subjects is possible without losing any image resolution. Thanks to a range of exclusive Nikon technologies, the D3400 lets you do all this — and much, much more.
The superb images you get with the D3400 are attained through a combination of unrivalled Nikon technologies working together. The D3400 achieves a wide standard sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600. Thanks to its EXPEED 4 image-processing engine, which effectively reduces image noise, you get clear pictures even in dark scenes. Harnessing 24.2 effective megapixels and the superb optical performance of Nikon’s NIKKOR lenses, the camera renders your subjects in beautiful, crisp pictures. Finally, there’s Nikon’s image creation system, Picture Control, which helps make your images look even better.
With its large, 7.5-cm/3.0-in. LCD monitor, the D3400 lets you enjoy comfortable live view shooting, the way you would with a smartphone or compact digital camera. Live view shooting is great for casual snapshots, as well as for still-life shooting where you want razor-sharp focus. Moreover, the camera’s approx. 100% frame coverage makes it simpler to confirm your shot from edge to edge.
Whether you’re on the street, the beach or the dance floor, sometimes the best moments only last for a split second. The D3400 offers high-speed continuous shooting of up to approx. 5 frames per second*(1), that is sustainable up to 100 frames*(2). At that pace, you won’t miss a thing.
*1 Assumes manual focus (MF), manual (M) or shutter-priority auto (S), a shutter speed of 1/250 s or faster and other settings at default values.
*2 When pictures are shot at ISO 100 and a 16-GB SanDisk Extreme Pro SDHC UHS-I card is used for storage.
The D3400’s quick, accurate 11-point AF system helps you capture unpredictable and fast-moving subjects in sharp focus. A cross-type sensor covers the most frequently used center area to deliver superior subject acquisition and focusing performance. Nikon’s unique Scene Recognition System helps the D3400 detect subjects and changes in composition rapidly. There are four AF-area modes to choose from. In auto-area AF mode, the camera detects subject, foreground and background to achieve focus at the appropriate point. In 3D-tracking (11 points) mode, the focus point automatically changes to track the subject as long as the shutter-release button is pressed halfway, even if the subject moves or the composition changes. Single-point AF and dynamic-area AF are also available.
One of the unique benefits of a D-SLR is its viewfinder. If you want to track fast or erratic subjects from a distance, it’s the most surefire way of nailing the shot. Unlike taking pictures with a smart device, viewfinder shooting encourages you to take a secure grip of the camera, keeping it level and minimising camera shake.
The D3400 doesn’t just shoot superb photos: it’s also capable of creating smooth, sharp Full HD movies at 60p. The camera yields beautiful videos even in dark scenes, thanks to a wide standard sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600 — the same as when shooting stills. Your videos can also take advantage of the beautiful background blur and superior rendering of NIKKOR lenses.
Four AF-area modes are available for live view and movie shooting. Face-priority AF is especially handy when you want to focus on friends’ faces in commemorative shots. Normal-area AF helps you achieve tack-sharp focus on static subjects, while wide-area AF is convenient for landscape pictures. In these two modes, you can move the focus point anywhere in the frame by using the multi selector. Meanwhile, subject-tracking AF is convenient for moving subjects. Used in combination with full-time-servo AF, you can easily capture running friends or pets in sharp focus.
You don’t have to worry about your battery running out while taking pictures with the D3400. It's efficient, energy-saving design allows you to shoot approx. 1,200 shots per charge* with the EN-EL14a Rechargeable Li-ion Battery. Even when the camera is constantly connected to your smart device via SnapBridge for automatic image transfer, you can keep going for hours.
*Based on CIPA Standards. When Bluetooth® is not used.
Note: Battery power is used for wireless communication even when the camera is turned off. If you do not require automatic image transfer, you can change the “Send while off” setting to “Off” to conserve power.
Imagine how easy it would be to post pictures online if they were saved to your smart device as soon as you took them. SnapBridge*(1) creates a constant connection between your D3400 and a compatible smart device via Bluetooth®*(2), meaning pictures are automatically transferred as smart-device friendly 2-megapixel images as you shoot. This communication isn’t just one-way either: it offers added conveniences, including automatic syncing of the camera’s time and location information to that of the smart device. The image transfer process continues unaffected even when you have the camera stored nearby in your bag nearby. You can also transfer original pictures by selecting manual uploading on the smart device app.
Pairing your D3400 and a compatible smart device is a breeze with SnapBridge. Simply follow the instructions given by the app and camera, and a connection will be automatically established between the two. What’s more, the camera automatically detects smart devices that have been connected before, so you only need to go through the process once for each device.
*1 SnapBridge can be used with a compatible iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch® or smart devices running the Android™ operating system with the SnapBridge app installed. The app can be downloaded free from Apple App Store® and Google Play™.
*2 Bluetooth® communication is available when the camera is connected to a smart device with the SnapBridge app installed. Wi-Fi communication is not available. Note: Videos cannot be transferred from the D3400. Remote shooting using the SnapBridge app is not available. Optional ML-L3 Wireless Remote Control is available for this purpose.
The convenience of SnapBridge doesn’t stop at automatic image transfers. The constant, advanced connection between the D3400 and a compatible smart device enables automatic syncing of time and location information and more. The menu of features will grow in the future, tapping into the rich seam of possibilities online — and making your image experience ever more rewarding.
AUTOMATIC UPDATING OF CAMERA’S TIME AND LOCATION INFO
The D3400 automatically synchronises its time and location Information to that of your smart device. This feature comes in handy when traveling to different time zones, as smart devices automatically adjust to the local time.
TWO KINDS OF CREDIT INFORMATION CAN BE EMBEDDED IN PICTURES
You can embed up to two pieces of credit information in your pictures as they are saved on your smart device. The following option are selectable: copyright, comments, shooting information, text and logo. This speeds up the process of sharing images online, ensuring you don't have to enter information every time you upload a photo.
ALWAYS HAVE YOUR CAMERA READY FOR THE LATEST FEATURES
Nikon will send notifications to the SnapBridge app when new firmware is available for the camera that your smartphone is connected to. This way, you can enjoy all the latest camera features, without missing firmware updates.
In pictures of outdoor activities under the sun or a room with a bright window, the details and color gradation in a bright sky or dark shadows may sometimes be lost. But thanks to the EXPEED 4 image-processing engine, the D3400’s Active D-Lighting preserves more tones in both areas, capturing moments with true-to-life brightness.
Picture Control is Nikon’s simple image creation system. The D3400 incorporates seven types of preset Picture Control — Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait, Landscape and Flat — which you can select before shooting, according to the subject and situation. Each Picture Control option lets you fine-tune image characteristics, such as sharpening and contrast, depending on your own creative intentions. Picture Control can also be set using the guide mode.
Scene modes are an easy way to get great pictures, without the need to adjust numerous settings. Simply rotate the mode dial to one of six icons according to your subject — portrait, landscape, child, sports, close-up, and night portrait. The D3400 automatically chooses the most appropriate settings and delivers beautiful results.
Everyone wants to take more creative images and movies. The D3400 incorporates 10 special effects, which you can apply to your pictures and movies before shooting. Simply set the mode dial to “EFFECTS” and select the option you want to use. The resulting image appears on the LCD monitor in real-time, so you can confirm how it will look before you shoot. Three options — photo illustration, miniature effect and selective color — are also available in the camera’s retouch menu.
The D3400 lets you edit images and movies right in the camera. With 20 in-camera retouch menu options, including the new painting option, it’s easy to enhance or add a creative touch to your pictures. You can trim and resize images, or have fun with options like the fisheye effect and image overlay. Three special effects options — photo illustration, miniature effect and selective color — are also available in post-production using this retouch menu.
Even if you’ve never used a D-SLR before, the D3400 is easy to get to grips with. Its built-in guide mode is designed to help beginners achieve the pictures they want, while learning more about D-SLR photography along the way. Guide mode leads you through each step of the process, from setting up the camera to shooting, viewing/deleting and retouching images. For instance, if you want to take a uniquely D-SLR-style picture with a blurred background that emphasises the subject, simply rotate the mode dial to “GUIDE” and select “soften backgrounds” from the “Shoot/Advanced operation” option. The camera displays an assist image, so you can confirm how the setting will change your picture.
Utilising a 420-pixel RGB sensor and its high-pixel-count image sensor, the D3400 is able to detect fine variations in the brightness and colours of a scene before shooting. The results are reflected in autofocus, auto exposure, i-TTL flash control and auto white balance, etc., for accurate auto control. Moreover, the D3400 easily detects faces and uses this information to zoom in on faces during playback, as well as for autofocus, auto exposure and auto white balance.
When you’re shooting in low-light, backlit or shaded conditions, the D3400 detects the scene and automatically triggers and fires its built-in flash*. The flash produces just the right amount of light for the situation, resulting in an attractive, natural-looking image.
*When mode dial is set to auto, portrait, child, close up, night portrait or special effects (super vivid, pop, photo illustration and toy camera effect).
