Nikon D3400 & Two Nikon Lenses Announced (18-55 and 70-300)


Nikon D3400 has officially been announced, featuring the same 24.2MP sensor used in its predecessor.

  • 24.2 Megapixels
  • Expeed 4 Processor
  • ISO 100 – 25,600
  • 11 AF Points
  • 5 frames per second
  • Battery life up to 1,200 shots
  • Full HD recording at 60fps (no 4K)
  • SnapBridge (connecting to your phone)

What’s new in the Nikon D3400?


It’s got the same sensor, number of megapixels, ISO sensitivity, video features, burst mode and auto focus points.

The biggest change is definitely the increased battery life, going from 700 to 1,200 shots in a single charge! D3300’s battery life was already the best compared to other models, so this is excellent news.

Then there’s the SnapBridge, a way to connect with your smartphone using Bluetooth (no Wi-Fi though). Nikon also removed the port for an external microphone, so the D3400 is definitely not your best option if video recording with highest sound quality is a priority for you.

So you’re paying more for almost twice as large battery capacity, SnapBridge and no microphone port. If you’re getting it with the kit 18-55mm lens, Nikon includes the newly announced AF-P 18-55mm kit lens, featuring a stepping motor with silent and smooth auto focus, making it great for videos.

You can pre-order the Nikon D3400 + 18-55mm kit lens for $646.95 here. It starts shipping on September 11th.



Two New Nikon Lenses

Nikon AF-P 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED and VR version


Nikon has also announced two 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED (and one with VR), priced at $349 and $399 respectively. Both feature a stepping motor which is great news if you want to record videos and don’t want any noise picked up from the auto focusing.

There are also two AF-P versions of the kit 18-55mm lenses, one with and without VR (announced back in January 2016, but now officially released).

All 4 lenses will also be available on September 11th.
