While smartphones have become capable of capturing impressive image quality, they're are still quite far away from the amount of details a DSLR can capture with its larger image sensor. Since we always want to tweet at will without wasting any time, we end up relying on the smartphone camera. The Nikon D3400 solves this issue by syncing all the high-quality images with a lower file size so it can be shared instantly. Lets find out how well that works.

Design and Specifications

Nikon is one of the leading pioneers when it comes to professional cameras, regardless if it’s an entry level or a high-end product. In this case, the Nikon D3400 is a mid-range DSLR that sports a 24.4MP DX format image sensor on-board (APS-C). The device comes with a Nikon 18-55mm stock lens with an aperture from F3.5 to F5.6. Interestingly, the lens can be expanded only when you hold the lock button and turn the lens. To lock back, you hold and spin the lens back anti-clockwise. The camera warns to unlock the lens first before using the device. The flash button is situated on the left side.

The camera itself is light and compact for a DSLR, and the hand grip is comfortable to hold without any noticeable finger strains. The trigger button and the video REC button are very easy to reach with my index finger. The mode dial offers options for Auto, Auto with Flash off, Manual, Shutter, Aperture, EFFECTS, and other scenery options such as fast action, vivid, portrait, landscape, macro, and so forth.

At the rear, you will find a 3-inch TFT-LCD screen with wide viewing angles. It’s odd that the LCD screen is fixed and not movable- Nikon could have added some degree of inclination. The camera menu system is easily accessible using the Menu button on the left side. Other buttons include the image playback button, zoom in/out, information, and the Lv that switches the image preview mode between the screen and the pentamirror viewfinder.

Speaking of the viewfinder, there is a small ring that helps magnify the view of the optical viewfinder. Others include the directional button and the ring for adjusting the shutter speed/aperture.

On the left side, you get the HDMI Type-C and micro-USB port that’s sealed with a rubber cover. The SD card slot is placed on the right side.

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.
