Wouldn’t it be great if a full-blown D-SLR cam­era could in­te­grate seam­lessly with the rest of your dig­i­tal life? Well, now it can, and that’s the head­line at­trac­tion of the new D3400. With Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity work­ing in sync with Nikon’s Snap­Bridge soft­ware, the D3400 can main­tain a con­stant con­nec­tion to a smart­phone or tablet, so you can down­load im­ages im­me­di­ately and ef­fort­lessly while you’re shooting, and even up­load them straight to so­cial me­dia.

But it’s not just about con­nec­tiv­ity. In­her­it­ing all the best bits of the D3300, the D3400 de­liv­ers su­perb im­age qual­ity, and is im­pres­sively be­gin­ner-friendly: a lead­ing at­trac­tion for novices is Nikon’s ‘Guide’ shooting mode, which is like hav­ing your own per­sonal pho­tog­ra­phy tu­tor in­side your cam­era.

BUY if… You want to take the step up from a smart­phone or com­pact cam­era, and ex­pe­ri­ence the cre­ative delights of SLR pho­tog­ra­phy com­bined with has­sle-free con­nec­tiv­ity.
