Nikon D3400 DSLR camera becomes official

Nikon has just revealed the D3400 digital SLR camera. The new Nikon D3400 entry-level shooter has a new 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor without an anti-aliasing filter.

The DSLR shooter is joined by four optics. They are the AF-P DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR, AF-P DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G, AF-P DX Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR, and AF-P DX Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED.

The SnapBridge technology has also been added to the D3400. This is a new addition to this line, enabling connectivity with a mobile device over Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). SnapBridge users can also access Nikon Image Space, a free online image sharing and storage service.
