Connect your images with the world
Share your best shots with SnapBridge1, a new feature that automatically downloads your images to your smart device2 via a constant Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connection3. BLE maintains constant connection with minimal energy use, so you can continue shooting and sharing without excessive battery consumption on either device. SnapBridge also allows your smart device to access the D3400 when the camera is switched off. It can even automatically upload your pictures into Nikon Image Space4.
Incredible definition with every shot
Preserve your most valuable moments, just the way you remember them. The D3400 features an improved ISO range of 100-25600, letting you acquire sharp and crisp pictures even when it starts to get dark. To make sure that your shot stays true to your vision, a 24.2-megapixel image sensor and the EXPEED 4 image-processing engine deliver accurate colours and fine details.

Get in the thick of the action and capture it all. With 11 autofocus (AF) points, the D3400 ensures that your loved ones always stay in focus, even when they’re at their most spontaneous.
