Built for comfortable and stable shooting, the D3500 is designed with a deep grip, and spacious button placement for intuitive operation. The high resolution 921k dot rear LCD monitor lets you compose and review your shots as you go.
The 18-55mm lens included is ideal for all types of photography. It focuses quickly and smoothly, with virtually no drive noise, perfect for shooting movies.
One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the 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.
