Welcome to photography.
Before the D3400, you chose your smartphone camera for convenience. Zooming was clumsy. Shooting in low light was nearly impossible. Capturing fast action was a game of luck. But after the D3400, you'll see that you were compromising image quality. That some of the greatest photos happen when the light is low. That fast action can be frozen in perfect clarity. And that a camera and a smartphone can work together in harmony to make the photos you share absolutely amazing.
Photos and videos captured with the D3400 and a superb NIKKOR lens are as vibrant and lifelike as the moments they preserve. Shoot in extremely low light without a problem. Freeze fast-action in its tracks. Create portraits with rich, natural skin tones and beautifully blurred backgrounds. The photos you share will amaze everyone-even yourself.

The gateway to better photography
The D3400 makes photography easy and fun, freeing you to focus on your natural talents-framing great shots, anticipating special moments and finding unique perspectives in everyday scenes. As your abilities grow (and they will grow) you can take complete creative control of the D3400.
Learn while doing; the D3400 actually teaches you how to use it with step-by-step instruction, right in the camera.
Nearly 100 years of Nikon know-how is programmed into the D3400 for outstanding results, effortlessly.
Capture the sights and sounds
At the touch of a button, the D3400 records dazzling 1080/60p Full HD video. Nikon's new AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens uses a stepping motor for smooth and quiet autofocusing, so only the sounds of the moment are recorded with D3400's internal mic. Create time-lapse videos, ultra-smooth slow motion sequences and more.
Catch every moment
Press and hold the D3400's shutter button and capture 5 FPS continuously with full autofocus performance. Transform a moment of fast action into a thrilling photo sequence, then share it through SnapBridge for all to see.
Focus on the details
Nikon cameras have some of the finest autofocus systems available. The D3400's AF system quickly acquires your subject and provides precise focus, even during high-speed shooting and low-light situations.

Legendary NIKKOR lenses have long been the benchmark of optical excellence, and every lens offers an inspiring new view of the world. Grow your capabilities.
