Nikon d3400 release date review specs
The new Nikon d3400 definitely coming with a 24,2 Megapixel sensor without low pass (AA) filter. The camera is designed with simplicity and usability in mind, the pictures can be automatically uploaded to a smartphone or tablet. The initial price is 647 USD for the entry level camera. The camera will be available from 13th September 2016.
The native ISO range is between 100 and 25,600, and the camera can take 5 frames per second in burst mode. The camera has 6 preset picture styles.
The camera has a 11 point Multicam 1000 autofocus system. The camera can record Full HD (1080p) video at 60 fps. The new Nikon has a Bluetooth Snapbridge connectivity as well to quickly share the pictures via smartphones or tablet (No Wifi). (Android 5 or newer is required with Bluetooth 4.0, no iPhone/iPad support yet)
There is an innovative guide mode as well. The camera can be purchased with the new Nikkor 18-55mm P lens. This lens has a really silent stepper motor as Canon‘S stm lenses optimized for video recording. This stepper motor exist in a 70 300mm lens as well with or without a stabilizer.
In the meantime Nikon released the new Nikon d7200 camera. The camera has an upgraded sensor with a native ISO range of 100-25,600 and two additional sensitivities (51,200 and 102,400) in Black and white (only jpg) mode. If the new Nikon d3400 inherit this sensor than it will be a really strong camera.
The new Nikon d3400 camera perhaps will be released in 2015. No detailed information yet. Seems Nikon makes very good cameras, and more and more functions appear in entry level models as well.
The very good, class-leading 24 Mpixel sensor and lots of other functions are now available in entry level models as well, not just in the Nikon 7xxx and 5xxx line.
The three key areas DXO measures are the dynamic range, low light high iso performance and color depth. (you can find explanation about dynamic range, color depth, and high iso performance at the bottom of the page). Seems the new Nikon d3300 is very competitive in all three areas, and holds his own very strongly, only the dynamic range, where the Nikon d7100 is ahead. The difference is app. 1 EV.
On the other hand the high iso performance of the newer Nikon d3300 is better, which is surprising.
To broaden the picture, the dynamic range of the Nikon d3300 is better on paper than any other camera in the market, except some higher level Nikons and few other cameras, including Middle format and Full frame Leica, Phase one cameras.
Even if we consider sensor performance in general, the new Nikon d3300 is a very strong competitor it is 29th best camera regarding sensor performance.
Nikon doesn’t make a very small Dsrl like the Canon 100d yet, but no information is it projected for the future or not. Perhaps the Nikon d5400 can be a small dsrl like the Canon 100d at Nikon part. But this is only a speculation, perhaps there will be a new line like Nikon 1000 or something different.

Introduction – Nikon D3300 specs
The Nikon d3300 is an entrly-level Dslr camera produced for beginner dsrl users. Despite that it has an excellent image quality which is competing even with much more expensive models.
Nikon D3300 main parameters
Strength: Good 24 Mpixel sensor, excellent picture quality, guide modes, lots of functions
Weekness: Lack of focus motor, and external controls
Nikon D3300 specs
Release date: 2014
Sensor:24 Mp this is the most likely option, but seems Nikon sensors produced by Toshiba gets better and better even is small periods
Camera size: as before
Camera weight: as before
Dynamic range: no information yet
ISO range:100-25,600 this is the most likely
Video: HD or 4K
LCD resolution:No info yet
Viewfinder size: No info yet, probably continuing the small size of the earlier models
Nikon d3400 functions
No informations about the functions yet. It is interesting whether Nikon improve video autofocusing system in some way. Perhaps at that time all camera has a touchscreen, which helps to pack in lots of different functions.
Wifi comes more and more common will be like industry standard in a little time.

The dynamic range shows the range of light levels the camera can capture, from black to bright white. Dynamic range is usually measured in EV. Cameras with wider dynamic range (bigger number, 14 EV vs 12 EV) can capture more detail is the brighter and the darker areas, than cameras with smaller dynamic range, which has a tendency of blow out highlights or no detail in the dark shadow areas.
High iso performance:
Dxo high iso performance refer to the ISO number when the camera makes, relatively nice, noisy free images. It doesn’t mean that images with higher iso values are awful: just DXO set a line, for a high quality. For example my Nikon d7000 makes absolutely accetable images at low light for my taste at ISO 6400 (with in camera noice reduction), but DXO value is around 1150 where they think the pictures are clean enough. Perhaps most likely this number refers to the 100% crop of the image, without any resizing or cropping.
The color depth shows how many colors the camera can capture. For landscapes, portraits or macro this is more important, but today most dslr camera can capture many colors even the ones has not so high rating.
Nikon d3400 predecessors:
The Nikon d3300 is currently the newest camera in the Nikon entry line. There is no built-in-focus motor in the Nikon d3300 camera, which means it is only can autofocus with af-s and af-I (several older super expensive tele) lenses. This camera has the state-of-the-art Nikon 24 Megapixel CMOS sensor, with improved high ISO performance. The camera still has a fixed LCD screen with 920k dots. The camera can shoot 5 frames per second in burst mode. The shutter speed can be adjusted between 1/4000 and 30s normally, but longer shutter speed are also available in Bulb, in Manual mode.
This is one of the first Nikon DX with a 24 Megapixel sensor. There is no built-in-focus motor in the Nikon d3200 camera, which means it is only can autofocus with af-s and af-I (several older super expensive tele) lenses. It was released in 2012. The camera has an ISO range of 100-6400 (12,800 in extended mode). The camera has a burst mode of 4 frames per second. The camera has a live view mode, HD video ( 1920 x 1080 ) at 30 fps, but no HDR function yet.
The Nikon d3100 was released in 2010. The camera has a 14.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor with a maximum resolution of 4608 x 3072 pixels. There is no built-in-focus motor in the Nikon d3100 camera, which means it is only can autofocus with af-s and af-I (several older super expensive tele) lenses. The can record the images on sd, sdhc and shxc memory cards. The camera has a flash synch speed of X = 1/200 s.
The Nikon d3000 was released in 2009. There is no built-in-focus motor in the Nikon d3000 camera, which means it is only can autofocus with af-s and af-I (several older super expensive tele) lenses. The camera has a 10.2 Megapixel APS-C CCD sensor, with a maximum resolution of 3872 x 2592 pixels. The camera has one card slot for Sd cards. The camera has a 230k dots 3″ fixed back LCD panel. The iso sensitivities can be regulated between iso 100-1600 range, approximately up to ISO 3200 in extended mode. The camera has 3D color matrix, center-weighted and spot metering.
