With a continuous shooting speed of approximately 5 frames per second, you have the peace of mind of never missing a priceless memory.
Relive your favourite memories or share them with your friends and family, by capturing the smoothest of videos in Full HD 1080/60p. Make the most of the AF-P kit lenses for quiet and high-speed AF operation that allows for comfortable and easy movie recording of all that is precious to you.
If you are new to a DSLR, the built-in Guide Mode teaches you the basics of operating the camera, helping you achieve great shots in a variety of scenarios. The D3400 also comes equipped with Picture Control that allows you more creative control to customise and tailor your images in the camera itself. Express your creativity with 10 different Special Effects, such as Night Vision or Miniature Effect, for unique and eye-catching photographs.
Take the D3400 with you wherever you go. Weighing approximately 395g, the D3400 is a joy to hold and use. Its compact monocoque structure also features a sleek and high-quality body design, and will be a sturdy companion as you begin your journey of DSLR photography.

1. Share D-SLR pictures easily
Imagine how easy it would be to post pictures online if they were saved to your smart device as soon as you took them. SnapBridge*1 creates a constant connection between your D3400 and a compatible smart device via Bluetooth®*2, meaning pictures are automatically transferred as smart-device friendly 2-megapixel images as you shoot. This communication isn’t just one-way either: it offers added conveniences, including automatic syncing of the camera’s time and location information to that of the smart device. The image transfer process continues unaffected even when you have the camera stored nearby in your bag nearby. You can also transfer original pictures by selecting manual uploading on the smart device app.

The convenience of SnapBridge doesn’t stop at automatic image transfers. The constant, advanced connection between the D3400 and a compatible smart device enables automatic syncing of time and location information and more. The menu of features will grow in the future, tapping into the rich seam of possibilities online — and making your image experience ever more rewarding.
The D3400 automatically synchronizes its time and location Information to that of your smart device. This feature comes in handy when traveling to different time zones, as smart devices automatically adjust to the local time.
You can embed up to two pieces of credit information in your pictures as they are saved on your smart device. These are selectable from: copyright, comments, shooting information, text and logo. This speeds up the process of sharing images online, ensuring you don't have to enter information every time you upload a photo.
Nikon will send notifications to the SnapBridge app when new firmware is available for the camera that your smartphone is connected to. This way, you can enjoy all the latest camera features, without missing firmware updates.
If the pictures you take with your smart device leave you wanting more, just wait until you get your hands on the D3400. Images of indoor gigs and parties capture the best moments with minimal blur. Majestic landscape shots taken while hiking stay tack sharp even after aggressive cropping. Impressive portraits make your subjects stand out against beautifully soft backgrounds. Zooming in on distant subjects is possible without losing any image resolution. Thanks to a range of exclusive Nikon technologies, the D3400 lets you do all this — and much, much more.
The superb images you get with the D3400 are attained through a combination of unrivaled Nikon technologies working together. The D3400 achieves a wide standard sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600. Thanks to its EXPEED 4 image-processing engine, which effectively reduces image noise, you get clear pictures even in dark scenes. Harnessing 24.2 effective megapixels and the superb optical performance of Nikon’s NIKKOR lenses, the camera renders your subjects in beautiful, crisp pictures. Finally, there’s Nikon’s image creation system, Picture Control, which helps make your images look even better.
In pictures of outdoor activities under the sun or a room with a bright window, the details and color gradation in a bright sky or dark shadows may sometimes be lost. But thanks to the EXPEED 4 image-processing engine, the D3400’s Active D-Lighting preserves more tones in both areas, capturing moments with true-to-life brightness.
Active D-Lighting: On
*Note: This image is shot with the D3300.
Active D-Lighting: Off
*Note: This image is shot with the D3300.
Picture Control is Nikon’s simple image creation system. The D3400 incorporates seven types of preset Picture Control — Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait, Landscape and Flat — which you can select before shooting, according to the subject and situation. Each Picture Control option lets you fine-tune image characteristics, such as sharpening and contrast, depending on your own creative intentions. Picture Control can also be set using the guide mode.
2. Easy and fun
Scene modes are an easy way to get great pictures, without the need to adjust numerous settings. Simply rotate the mode dial to one of six icons according to your subject — portrait, landscape, child, sports, close up, and night portrait. The D3400 automatically chooses the most appropriate settings and delivers beautiful results.
• Portrait • Landscape • Child • Sports • Close up • Night portrait
Everyone wants to take more creative images and movies. The D3400 incorporates 10 special effects, which you can apply to your pictures and movies before shooting. Simply set the mode dial to “EFFECTS” and select the option you want to use. The resulting image appears on the LCD monitor in real time, so you can confirm how it will look before you shoot. Three options — photo illustration, miniature effect and selective color — are also available in the camera’s retouch menu.
Special effect: Selective color
Special effect: Miniature effect
• Night Vision • Super vivid • Pop • Photo illustration*1 • Toy camera effect • Miniature effect*2 • Selective color • Silhouette • High key • Low key
*1 Movies shot in this mode play back like a slide show made up of a series of stills.
*2 Movies shot in this mode play back at high speed.
The D3400 lets you edit images and movies right in the camera. With 20 in-camera retouch menu options, including the new painting option, it’s easy to enhance or add a creative touch to your pictures. You can trim and resize images, or have fun with options like the fisheye effect and image overlay. Three special effects options — photo illustration, miniature effect and selective color — are also available in post-production using this retouch menu.
Retouch menu: Filter effects (Cross screen)
Retouch menu: Monochrome (Sepia)
• NEF (RAW) processing • Trim • Resize • D-Lighting • Quick retouch • Red-eye correction • Straighten • Distortion control • Perspective control • Fisheye • Filter effects • Monochrome • Image overlay • Color outline • Photo illustration • Color sketch • Miniature effect • Selective color • Painting • Edit movie • Side-by-side comparison
Even if you’ve never used a D-SLR before, the D3400 is easy to get to grips with. Its built-in guide mode is designed to help beginners achieve the pictures they want, while learning more about D-SLR photography along the way. Guide mode leads you through each step of the process, from setting up the camera to shooting, viewing/deleting and retouching images. For instance, if you want to take a uniquely D-SLR-style picture with a blurred background that emphasizes the subject, simply rotate the mode dial to “GUIDE” and select “soften backgrounds” from the “Shoot/Advanced operation” option. The camera displays an assist image, so you can confirm how the setting will change your picture.
With its large, 7.5-cm/3.0-in. LCD monitor, the D3400 lets you enjoy comfortable live view shooting, the way you would with a smartphone or compact digital camera. Live view shooting is great for casual snapshots, as well as for still-life shooting where you want razor-sharp focus. Moreover, the camera’s approx. 100% frame coverage makes it simpler to confirm your shot from edge to edge.
When shooting in live view, setting the mode dial to auto or auto (flash off)* enables the camera to automatically activate the most suitable scene mode. The icon of the selected mode, such as landscape or portrait, is displayed in the top left of the monitor.
*When using autofocus.
• Auto • Auto (Flash off) • Portrait • Close up • Landscape • Night portrait Note: For situations not covered by portrait, landscape, close up or night portrait, auto or auto (flash off) will be selected.
Four AF-area modes are available for live view and movie shooting. Face-priority AF is especially handy when you want to focus on friends’ faces in commemorative shots. Normal-area AF helps you achieve tack-sharp focus on static subjects, while wide-area AF is convenient for landscape pictures. In these two modes, you can move the focus point anywhere in the frame by using the multi selector. Meanwhile, subject-tracking AF is convenient for moving subjects. Used in combination with full-time-servo AF*, you can easily capture running friends or pets in sharp focus.
*Not available with the following special effects: toy camera effect and miniature effect.
The D3400’s quiet shutter release with minimized shutter sound lets you shoot quietly in situations such as a wedding ceremony or theater.
The D3400 doesn’t just shoot superb photos: it’s also capable of creating smooth, sharp Full HD movies at 60p. The camera yields beautiful videos even in dark scenes, thanks to a wide standard sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600 — the same as when shooting stills. Your videos can also take advantage of the beautiful background blur and superior rendering of NIKKOR lenses.
The D3400 supports HDMI, allowing you to play back your images and movies on an HDTV*. The camera is also compatible with HDMI-CEC (Consumer Electronics Control), meaning you can operate it remotely using the remote control of an HDMI-CEC-supported TV.
*Requires an HDMI cable (Type C), sold separately.
3. Convenient and comfortable
Whether you’re on the street, the beach or the dance floor, sometimes the best moments only last for a split second. The D3400 offers high-speed continuous shooting of up to approx. 5 frames per second*1, that is sustainable up to 100 frames*2. At that pace, you won’t miss a thing.
*1 Assumes manual focus (MF), manual (M) or shutter-priority auto (S), a shutter speed of 1/250 s or faster and other settings at default values.
*2 When pictures are shot at ISO 100 and a 16-GB SanDisk Extreme Pro SDHC UHS-I card is used for storage.
One of the unique benefits of a D-SLR is its viewfinder. If you want to track fast or erratic subjects from a distance, it’s the most surefire way of nailing the shot. Unlike taking pictures with a smart device, viewfinder shooting encourages you to take a secure grip of the camera, keeping it level and minimizing camera shake.
The D3400’s quick, accurate 11-point AF system helps you capture unpredictable and fast-moving subjects in sharp focus. A cross-type sensor covers the most frequently used center area to deliver superior subject-acquisition and focusing performance. Nikon’s unique Scene Recognition System helps the D3400 detect subjects and changes in composition rapidly. There are four AF-area modes to choose from. In auto-area AF mode, the camera detects subject, foreground and background to achieve focus at the appropriate point. In 3D-tracking (11 points) mode, the focus point automatically changes to track the subject as long as the shutter-release button is pressed halfway, even if the subject moves or the composition changes. Single-point AF and dynamic-area AF are also available.
Utilizing a 420-pixel RGB sensor and its high-pixel-count image sensor, the D3400 is able to detect fine variations in the brightness and colors of a scene before shooting. The results are reflected in autofocus, auto exposure, i-TTL flash control and auto white balance, etc., for accurate auto control. Moreover, the D3400 easily detects faces, and uses this information to zoom in on faces during playback, as well as for autofocus, auto exposure and auto white balance.
The D3400 is designed to offer great image quality within a small, stylish D-SLR body. Its comfortable, ergonomic grip allows you to hold the camera tightly and achieve pictures with reduced image blur. Paired with the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR kit lens featuring a retractable system, it makes for a remarkably compact D-SLR system. Its sleek, sophisticated form factor will fit perfectly into any lifestyle, and comes in a choice of two colors, black or red.
You don’t have to worry about your battery running out while taking pictures with the D3400. Its efficient, energy-saving design allows you to shoot approx. 1,200 shots per charge* with the EN-EL14a Rechargeable Li-ion Battery. Even when the camera is constantly connected to your smart device via SnapBridge for automatic image transfer, you can keep going for hours.
*Based on CIPA Standards. When Bluetooth® is not used.
Note: Battery power is used for wireless communication even when the camera is turned off. If you do not require automatic image transfer, you can change the “Send while off” setting to “Off” to conserve power.
The D3400 offers a wider variety of playback options. With this camera, you can trim out the portion of the image that you are zooming in on, allowing quick and convenient edits. The camera’s large, 24.2-megapixel images lend themselves to aggressive cropping, giving you greater flexibility to create exactly the picture you want.
The i button, located on the back of the camera, provides a convenient way to change settings quickly while shooting, without having to scroll through any menus. It can also be used to rate favorite pictures quickly, select pictures for transfer to a smart device, or access the retouch menu during playback.
When you’re shooting in low-light, backlit or shaded conditions, the D3400 detects the scene and automatically triggers and fires its built-in flash*. The flash produces just the right amount of light for the situation, resulting in an attractive, natural-looking image.
*When mode dial is set to auto, portrait, child, close up, night portrait or special effects (super vivid, pop, photo illustration and toy camera effect).
The D3400’s shutter is tested for 100,000 cycles with the unit actually loaded on the camera. Its proven durability means you can continue to enjoy shooting with the D3400 for a long time.
4. Take your creativity further
Image quality largely depends on the performance of the lens you’re using. Thanks to advanced optical and production technologies accumulated over the years, all of Nikon’s NIKKOR lenses, including kit lenses, achieve excellent image reproduction at high resolutions. Nikon has implemented cutting-edge technologies such as Vibration Reduction (VR) which compensates for camera shake, and the wide variety of NIKKOR lenses lets you enjoy a whole new world of creative expression.
This compact and lightweight zoom lens incorporates a stepping motor for fast and quiet AF operation. Two aspherical lens elements minimize lens aberrations. The VR system provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster*. A setting system using the camera menus allows some lens settings on the camera. A great choice for entry-class D-SLR users.
*Based on CIPA Standards. This value is achieved when attached to a DX-format D-SLR camera, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.
Telephoto zoom lens offering approx. 4.3x zoom coverage. With a stepping motor ensuring fast and quiet AF operation, this lens is suitable for shooting in quiet situations. Its VR system, which can be activated via the D3400’s shooting menu, provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster*, while its ED glass element contributes to achieving superb image quality.
*Based on CIPA Standards. This value is achieved when attached to a DX-format D-SLR camera, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.
Thanks to a maximum aperture of f/1.8, this lens helps create striking portraits with beautiful soft backgrounds that make your subject stand out. The large aperture also ensures that your pictures turn out great in low light, even without a tripod.
*Based on CIPA Standards. This value is achieved when attached to a DX-format D-SLR camera, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.
This compact, lightweight micro lens dynamically captures small subjects, while creating beautiful bokeh. It’s perfectly suited for taking stunning close-ups of subjects ranging from flowers to cakes.
The D3400’s shooting menu allows you to activate optical VR when compatible lenses are being used. Once turned on, an indicator light appears in the information display, and VR is activated when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway.
Light makes all the difference in photography. While the D3400 has a convenient built-in pop-up flash, employing an optional Speedlight can take your images to the next level.
The SB-500 is a compact, lightweight flash, which provides many Nikon Creative Lighting System functions with just two R6/AA-size batteries. With a guide number of 24/78.7 (m/ft, ISO 100, 23°C/73.4°F), its flash head tilts up to 90° and rotates horizontally 180° for bounce flash which adds natural light. The built-in LED light (with a choice of three output levels) has a color temperature similar to sunlight, and can serve as an auxiliary light for both still and movie shooting.
The optional ML-L3 Wireless Remote Control is a hassle-free solution when you want to release the camera shutter from a distance — ideal in situations such as when taking group portraits.
ViewNX-i offers a convenient way to view your JPEG, RAW and movie files, and utilize them in coordination with other Nikon software. When you want to share your images, the software simplifies the process of uploading to various social media. And by activating the included ViewNX-Movie Editor software, you can perform simple movie edits, too.
