Good camera for the price
3

My d3500 is approaching 200k actuations and still keeps going. However, in this review i will be compwring it against my d600...a camera that costs about 5x as much new. The d3500 is noticeably built worse, and feels like a toy against it. However, the d3500 is well built given the price and target market. The d3500 also has great output for what it is. Yet, i dont take mine above iso 1600 unless i have to. The d600 i start to get concerned around iso 4500. The d3500 also lacks many physical controls. The raw buffer is also fairly dissapointing, and the af point coverage is nothing to write home about.

The d3500 is amazing for its price and class, and would get 5 stars if i scored it fairly.  It produces very sharp images, has great dynamic range and color depth against the t6 rebel
