The latest entry-level DSLR comes with significant improvements over its predecessor, the D3400
After long last, Nikon has finally unveiled the D3500 entry-level DSLR that has replaced the two-year-old D3400. There are some notable changes here as this new model comes with a refreshed design along with being smaller and lighter than its predecessor. Nikon has also made improvements to the battery as well where you now get 1550 shots on a single charge.
The D3500 has an effective pixel count of 24.2MP and supports a standard sensitivity range of ISO 100–25600. This DSLR is built with the same slim and lightweight monocoque structure as the Nikon D5600; it comes with a deep grip that offers an easy hold on the camera that promises to make shooting comfortable. A new layout for operational controls, including a larger playback button, and adjustment and concentration of the most important buttons at right on the back of the camera make it an ideal option for beginners.
In addition, a constant connection between the D3500 and a smart device is possible using the SnapBridge app and Bluetooth technology. Photos captured with the camera be automatically transferred to a smart device, but they can also be automatically uploaded to Nikon's photo-sharing service, Nikon Image Space.
