SnapBridge Technology

Have you ever heard of SnapBridge? It is what Nikon uses to make your camera and your smartphone work together. As soon as you take a picture, it is transferred to your tablet or cell phone via Bluetooth, so you can post it on Facebook or email it to a friend. And you don’t need to choose between your tablet and your phone, it is possible to sync up to 5 different devices, and your pics will be sent to all of them automatically.

Many Pre-Set Modes Available

The D3400 offers an auto mode that will automatically calculate the best settings to use when taking a picture. It is a point-and-shoot mode that makes it your camera easy to use. If you’d like to have more control, there are several pre-set modes you can select depending on what you want to achieve.

  • No flash mode – Basically auto mode, but without the flash popping up.
  • Portrait mode – The camera will automatically make sure the background is out of focus and smooth the skin tones
  • Landscape mode – For taking landscape pictures; it will boost the saturation in the greens and blues
  • Child mode – Shutter speed increases to capture the pic since children don´t usually stay still
  • Sports mode – Great for freezing motion
  • Macro mode – Perfect for taking photos of insects
  • Night Portrait mode – Same as portrait mode, but ideal for low-light conditions

Video Recording

Capturing full HD video is possible thanks to the D3400’s  AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens. It uses a stepping motor that makes autofocusing both smooth and quiet. This prevents any motor sounds from happening in your video and the only sound you will hear is the one that is recorded with the camera’s internal mic. This type of technology is mostly used on cameras that are much more expensive, so having it in this entry level one is a great plus.
