The Nikon D3400 has a 24.2MP DX-Format CMOS Sensor which produces images that are 6000 by 4000 pixels. The DX is Nikon’s designation for their APS-C cropped sensors. So if you put a 50mm lens on this camera, you’ll get the focal length equivalent of a 75mm lens on a full-frame camera.
The sensor offers a native ISO range from ISO 100 to ISO 25600, which gives it quite a lot of versatility under various lighting conditions, something that comes in very handy in general shooting and especially when traveling. And even at relatively high ISOs in low light, the lack of noise is impressive, and the images are usable even at the highest ISO settings.
The samples below were shot mostly with the standard kit lens, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR zoom lens. Some were shot with the AF-S FX NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G prime lens. The lens, focal length, and exposure settings are included with each image. I’ve tried to include a range of different scenes under different lighting and with different settings.
These were mostly shot in RAW mode and only lightly processed in Lightroom. I haven’t applied any corrections like fixing chromatic aberration, vignetting, or lens barrel distortion.

Where to Buy a Nikon D3400 DSLR
The D3400 is an excellent camera for getting started with DSLR photography. But now that it has been replaced with a newer model, it will become increasingly hard to find in stores.
You can also find them used at major used camera gear sellers such as KEH (which is where I often buy when I'm looking for used gear).
