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.
Breathtaking image quality
24.2MP sensor with no optical low-pass filter
Flawless low-light photos
Native ISO range from 100–25,600
The speed to freeze time
EXPEED 4 image processing
Nikon SnapBridge connectivity
Nikon SnapBridge: Camera, smartphone and cloud in perfect harmony
SnapBridge has changed the way cameras and smartphones work together—and only Nikon has it. Take a picture with the D3400 and it's automatically transferred to your compatible smartphone or tablet, ready to share. SnapBridge works seamlessly with NIKON IMAGE SPACE, a cloud storage and sharing site, to back-up your photos and to help you create and share albums with your friends and family. The future of photo sharing is here.
Easily pairs with up to five smart devices; always connected.
Photos automatically appear on your smart device.
Create and share albums on the go with a free NIKON IMAGE SPACE account.
Peace of mind
Backups are automatically stored in the cloud on NIKON IMAGE SPACE.
A camera designed for you
Compact and lightweight, the D3400 is designed to go everywhere you go. Even first-time DLSR owners will quickly feel at home—the camera's controls are smartly laid out for comfort and intuitive control. The bright optical viewfinder provides a sharp, glare-free view of the world, and the comfortable grip enables precise handling.
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.
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.
Change your perspective
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.
Discover your style
Nikon's exciting Picture Controls make it easy to get creative with your photos and videos. Choose from six preset options that enhance the color and tonal characteristics of your images, then customize selections for your own personal style.
The Nikon SnapBridge application must be installed on a compatible smart device before it can be used with this camera.
SnapBridge App Requirements: Android 5.0 or later or 6.0.1 or later. A device with Bluetooth 4.0 or later (i.e., a device that supports Bluetooth Smart Ready/Low Energy) is required.
