Nikon has unveiled their new entry-level DSLR, the Nikon D3400.  Featuring a 24MP CMOS Sensor, that excludes an optical low-pass filter, it sports the Expeed 4 Processor capable of 5 fps continuous shooting and a 3″ LCD screen with  11 phase detect points.

With Its improved battery life, it is now possible to take almost double the amount of shots than its predecessor the D3300.  This is allegedly due to a huge drop in flash strength from 12m down to 7m.Nikon D3400

Its video capability is the usual 1080p at up to 60 frames per second, however, it should be noted that it  lacks the external mic port and Ultrasonic sensor cleaning, that was included in the D3300.

While it lacks Wi-Fi connectivity like most entry level cameras, the star feature of this iteration seems to be its SnapBridge functionality, that allows you to connect with your phone using Bluetooth.

You will be able to get your hands on this nifty entry level DSLR, hopefully from early September, for around R8,750 including the AF-P DX Nikkor 18-55 kit lens.
