The new Nikon D3500 is the best entry-level DSLR. It retains the 24.2MP DX-format CMOS sensor, 5fps burst speed and 1080p video at 60fps of the Nikon D3400, but excels with a new EXPEED 4 Image Processor and CMOS sensor, making it faster and able to capture sharper images rich in colour.

The standard zoom AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR kit lens features VR Image Stabilisation and Super Integrated Coating that minimises flare and ghosting for more accurate colour rendering.

Features

  • 24.2MP DX-Format CMOS Sensor
  • EXPEED 4 Image Processor
  • No Optical Low-Pass FilterLOW-PASS FILTERAlso called an Anti-aliasing Filter. A filter made of a birefringent material, such as Lithium Niobate, placed infront of the image sensor. The filter's purpose is to reduce moiré, caused by large scale interference between fine textures and patterns in the image and the fine matrix pattern of the image sensor. The low-pass filter works by scattering any optical point in the image into a cluster of four, and effectively causing micro blur and thus removing the aliasing and consequently the moiré pattern. Some high-end cameras are deliberately designed without any low-pass filter in order to maximize the sharpness of the captured image - possible moiré is the trade-off.
  • Native ISO ISO Exposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. The ISO speed determines how sensitive a camera's sensor is to incoming light. A higher ISO speed absorbs more light, resulting in a brighter exposure, however, a higher ISO also results in more digital noise in low-light conditions. Cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) typically have higher ISO speed capability and produce less digital noise at high ISO settings. Digital cameras include a control for adjusting ISO speed, some of which can be set to adjust automatically in combination with certain other exposure settings. ISO is indicated in numbers usually starting at 100 and going upward (200, 400, 800, 1600 etc.) doubling in sensitivity each time. Most cameras also indicate 3rd stop intervals (100, 125, 180, 200 etc.)100-25600; 5 fps Shooting

It's lightweight and balanced, even with a telephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger. Essentially, it isolates and magnifies the subject so that it appears as a full image when shooting from a distance. Telephoto lenses are ideal for photographing subjects that are further away, such as wildlife and sports photography. lens attached. Each button and dial is carefully placed for comfort and ease of use, and the menu system is simple and intuitive.

You can even use the smartphone or tablet to remotely trigger the Nikon D3500 to take pictures.


Share photos that tell stories

The difference is in the details

The image sensor in the Nikon D3500 is approximately 15 times larger than those used in typical smartphones. That means much sharper, clearer photos with richer details — photos that immediately grab attention and get likes.

Colours that pop in any light

Inside every DSLR is a specialised computer that fine-tunes the settings for each shot. Nikon's renowned EXPEED image processing system is built upon a rich history of imaging know-how, and it helps the Nikon D3500 take beautifully vibrant photos and videos in nearly any condition.


Videos at the touch of a button

Recording beautiful video with the Nikon D3500 is as easy as shooting photos. Just flip the Live View lever and press the record button. You'll be capturing the sights and sounds in awesome 1080/60p Full HD video with stereo sound. Use your lens' zoom capability to shoot wide angle videos or tight close-ups.


Picture after amazing picture

Some of the best moments only last a split second. Press and hold the shutter button on the Nikon D3500 and capture up to 5 frames per second at full resolution with tack-sharp focus, ensuring you land the shot that matters.

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.


AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR Lens

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 lengthFOCAL LENGTHMeasured in mm, it is the distance from the focal point of a lens (its centre or curved mirror where light converges) to the plane of the image sensor (film) when an object is in focus. A shorter focal length lens sees a wider image and a longer focal length brings your subject closer. For example, a 15mm lens sees a very wide image and is perfect for landscape photography. Conversely, a 500mm lens sees a very narrow image, brings the subject much closer and is thus great for subjects that are far away, like a bird in a tree. With zoom lenses, its minimum and maximum focal lengths are indicated, for example, as 24-105mm. A zoom lens allows you to change the lens’ focal length, with shorter (wide-angle) and longer (telephoto) options, whereas a fixed focal length lens requires you to move back and forth to find the correct image composition. 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 flareFLAREOccurs when a point light source such as the sun or an artificial light (that is brighter than the rest of the scene), hits the front element of a lens resulting in a lack of contrast, haze, or unwanted semi-transparent objects being present in the image. You can avoid lens flare with a lenshood or filters, however, the effect is also useful for bringing artistic elements into an image, such as sun rays peaking out from behind a rock formation. and ghosting for greater contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). 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.

  • F-Mount Lens/DX Format
  • 27-82.5mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • ApertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. Range: f/3.5 to f/38
