Photography News: Nikon Updates Their Entry-Level DSLR Line With Seamless Mobile Device and Social Media Integration Along With New 18-55mm and 70-300mm Lenses; Both Lenses Include a Pulse Motor for Smoother, Quieter Focusing With No Drive Noise and Are Available With or Without Nikon's Vibration Reduction Feature
NEW YORK, NY --(Marketwired - August 17, 2016) - B&H is pleased to share Nikon's announcement of the D3400 DSLR Camera, along with four new lenses, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G Lens, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR, and the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR. Breaking down the barriers between the convenience of a smartphone and the image quality of a DSLR, the Nikon D3400 integrates seamlessly with Nikon SnapBridge so that pictures can be automatically transferred to up to five compatible smartphones or tablets, making them ready to share on your favorite social media platforms. Additionally, SnapBridge leverages the power of Nikon Image Space, a cloud storage and sharing site, to back up your photos for peace of mind and to help create and share albums with your friends and family.

With a compact and lightweight design, the D3400 is easy to carry and its intuitive controls allow you to easily create high-quality pictures. A 24.2MP sensor with no optical low-pass filter and a Native ISO range of 100–25,600helps to maximize image sharpness and clarity, even under low light. EXPEED 4 image processing further enhances image quality and camera performance. Fast action can be consistently frozen, and portraits can be created with rich, natural skin tones and beautifully blurred backgrounds.
To help get the most out of the Nikon D3400, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR, and the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR all include a pulse motor to focus smoother and quieter than previous drive systems. Subjects can be brought into focus instantly with precision, and when recording video, each lens shifts focus from subject to subject with practically no drive noise. The VR versions offer the added benefit of Vibration Reduction technology which compensates for the blur caused by camera movement, enabling handheld shooting in low-light conditions. Each of these "P" Series features high-quality optics while the 18-55mm lenses also include two aspherical lens elements for superior optical performance, giving photos and videos rich, vibrant colors, deep contrast, minimal distortion, and soft backgrounds, even under less than ideal conditions.
