After many years using the Pentax DSLR system I’ve sold it all and moved to Nikon in November 2020. I tried a D300 out a last summer and enjoyed it so decided to take the plunge and have bought myself a D3500 and twin lens kit (AF-P 18-55 VR & AF-P 70-300 VR) from Currys for £599. I can find no one else in the UK offering that deal and it doesn’t appear on the Camera Price buster website either. So far I’m impressed. I decided on the D3500 because I wanted a simple, lightweight, no frills ...

What's not to like about this camera given it's price point..... My son recently loaned his to me as a back up for a couple of weddings I have coming up. My other cameras being a Pentax K3 and a Nikon D800. Firstly what hits you is the size. Who would have thought a DSLR that's smaller than many mirrorless, with a really nice deep grip and super light. The shutter sound is nicely dampened and quiet and auto focus is quite snappy (hey i've shot Pentax for a decade ... anything is snappy) I was ...

Internally Nikon's entry level dSLR, the D40 line, plateaued at the D3300. The D3500 is fundamentally just a reheat: same 24 MP sensor, same Expeed processor, same 11 pt AF system, same 420 pixel RGB metering, same 5 fps drive, and same 100 shot buffer. Added is the bluetooth/snapbridge connectivity from the D3400. Gone is the headphone jack, sensor cleaning, and Fn button. The weaker flash from the D3400 (from size restrictions on the capacitor I suppose) is carried over. So if all you care ...

I do enjoy using this camera with the 18-55mm kit lens when I don't feel like carting all of my FF equipment around. However, there is one large annoyance: having to use a menu to change major settings, especially ISO! Also, the viewfinder could be a bit better. But for one who enjoys using auto mode, this a great camera! The price is also pretty great!

Had the D3500 for about two weeks now. We'll just get this out of the way, unless you feel like you could benefit from the redesigned grip or the longer battery life, I see no real need to upgrade from the D3400. That said, since the two are currently the same price, it makes sense to go with the newer model if you're starting from scratch. Things I like: -Superb image quality once again, but not radically different from its predecessor. A couple of things I noticed were: somewhat punchier ...
