A compact SLR camera for an amateur
The reflex camera has been slightly slimmed down from its predecessor , it weighs less, and the body itself is slightly slimmer. The parameters of the camera are similar to what we could find in the predecessor. So we have the same 24-megapixel APS-C sensor. The ISO range is 100-25 600, and in the serial mode we will take 5 photos in a second.The autofocus was equipped with only 11 focus points, which in the times of mirrorless cameras is a very average result. In turn, movies can be shot in Full HD at speeds up to 60 frames per second.
Nikon Nikon SLRs are known for the fact that working with them should not cause problems for an amateur. This is not the case for this model. We get a simplified menu that makes it very easy to navigate.A new feature is the introduction of a Bluetooth connectivity model that will allow you to transfer photos and videos directly to your mobile device using the SnapBridge app. This is one of the most interesting camera solutions. Immediately after taking, the photo is located on the smartphone, there we quickly process it and after the filter is put on social media. The battery is also a change from the predecessor. It is true that in the previous Nikon the battery could not be complained, however, in this model the capacity of the battery has been increased by 30 percent and now on a single charge we will make up to 1550 photos. This is a result that will not be defeated by any mirrorless and definitely one of the stronger sides of the presented model. A strong battery guarantees that the camera can take as many photos as the heart desires, without worrying about a quick discharge.
Price Nikon D3500
The camera may not offer great opportunities, nor is it a breakthrough. However, there is still a large group of amateurs who choose their SLR for their first camera. Nikon's model is dedicated to them. Knowing, however, that such people have a limited budget, the manufacturer pricing the SLR quite reasonably – for 499 dollars with the kit lens. This makes the model one of the cheaper proposals on the market. The question is how this will translate into a price in Poland, because as we know, the price is much higher by taxes and duties.
