Fast, accurate focusing
Unlike typical smartphones, fast-moving subjects are no problem for the Nikon D3500. 11 autofocus points are spread across the frame, and full-time AF locks onto your subject and keeps it in focus while you capture amazing shot after shot.
Updating the staple DX-format standard zoom, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR from Nikon offers a 27-82.5mm equivalent focal length range as well as an especially sleek form factor. Two aspherical elements are featured in the optical design, which helps to control spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize high sharpness and accurate rendering. A Super Integrated Coating is also used to minimise flare and ghosting for greater contrast and colour accuracy. Suiting both photo and video applications, the AF-P designation indicates the use of a pulse stepping motor that offers notably quiet, fast, and precise autofocus performance. Additionally, Vibration Reduction image stabilisation compensates for up to four stops of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting.
