    DESCRIPTION OF THE NIKON D3500

    Nikon D3500 is a compact, amateur reflex camera which mixes high quality of execution with perfect parameters. D3500 is an ideal choice for people who have just entered the world of photography. Its convenient construction and helpful photography modes facilitate taking photographs and recording films. What's more, the resistant and reliable mount of the lens enables the connection with a wide range of Nikkor  lenses.

    We have the 24MP APS-C sensor on board, which will enable us to take photographs within the ISO range of 100-25600 with the speed of 5f/s and register Full HD films with the speed of 60f/s. The autofocus is based on the 11-point system.

    The beginners will certainly like a simplified menu version, which should guide the user through numerous functions, and the 30% more efficient battery which will enable longer experimentation, without a need of charging. A fully-charged rechargeable battery will be sufficient to take up to 1550 photographs. What's more, we will also get Bluetooth, with the use of which we will be able to immediately send photographs to mobile devices and share them online.

    The body of Nikon D3500 has the dimensions of 124 × 97 × 70mm and it weighs 356g. The camera has a deeply-indented grip but, unfortunately, it doesn't have a touch, rotating screen. However, one should remember that it is a budget model, directed at total beginners.
