A brilliant way to shoot unforgettable high-definition photos and movies, this small and lightweight 24.2-megapixel DSLR is powerful, comfortable to carry around, and incredibly simple to operate.

Adding Bluetooth and SnapBridge for seamless wireless sharing with your smart device, this package is perfect for beginners.
24.2MP CMOS sensor
Specifically designed without an optical low-pass filter (OLPF), the D3400’s image sensor makes the most of its 24.2-megapixel resolution to sharply capture even the finest textures and render images with incredibly crisp detail.
Pair up this camera to your smart device through Bluetooth then photos and videos will be automatically sent over. This way, you’ll share your content on social media as soon as you take it.
Full HD video
Use the camera’s D-Movie function to make movies you’ll be proud of. You can record sharp Full HD (1080p) video clips in any light at frame rates up to 50p/60p with continuous autofocus, meaning you get smooth recordings of even fast-moving action, plus a remarkable level of sharpness and clarity.
LCD screen & optical viewfinder
As easy to shoot with as a compact camera or smartphone by using the large 3-inch LCD monitor to capture photos and movies. For perfectly framed portraits and long shots, there’s the optical viewfinder.
An 11-point autofocus system with a cross-type sensor in the centre will quickly lock onto your subject and keep it in sharp focus whether it’s off-centre, moving fast, or it’s completely unpredictable.
Guide Mode For Beginners
Use the built-in Guide Mode to get step-by-step instructions on how to use the camera. Your first DSLR can be daunting, but, with this nifty mode, you’ll be shooting like a pro in no time.
With 13 different effects like panorama and colour pop to choose from, the D3400 makes it easy to add a touch of artistry to your photos and movies. Simply select Effects Mode and choose the option you want to apply before shooting.
Access D-Movie and Live View via dedicated one-touch buttons. Use the i button on the back of the camera to bypass the camera’s main menu and quickly change settings while you shoot. When shooting with the viewfinder, you can choose between a classic interface and a graphic interface that animates settings, so it’s easier to see what you’re doing.
The image stabilisation on this camera is Lens Only.
Lenses & Cases
One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless. Click here to browse our selection.
