Nikon has launched the successor to the D3400, the Nikon D3500. The new entry-level DSLR offers a few improvements as compared to its predecessor in terms of the design and battery performance. The camera will come with a single AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR kit lens, for a total price of $499.

You can also opt for a dual kit lens that includes an AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR and AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED for a bumped up price of $849. The body features of the Nikon D3500 include a 24.2-megapixel DX-format sensor with 11 point AF system and an ISO range of 100-25,600. The DSLR is also capable of 1080p video recording at

Talking about the improvements, the D3500 now does 1550 shots on a single charge, against the 1200 shots on the D3400. Weight has also gone down by 30 grams. The newer variant also comes with an inbuilt wireless connection feature.

Apart from these few improvements, it’s mostly similar to its predecessor. The camera still features a built-in flash, RAW support, smartphone remote control, face detection focus, and a 921k dots LCD display. The Nikon D3500 missed out on image stabilization, environmental sealing, articulating screen, and AE bracketing though.
