Nikon D3500 overview

  • 1Description

Compact, easy to use, and versatile are all traits of the Nikon D3500, which is designed to be as flexible and intuitive as possible, while still offering the imaging capabilities you expect from a DSLR. Utilizing a DX-format 24.2MP CMOS sensor and EXPEED 4 image processor, the D3500 provides a native sensitivity range from ISO 100-25600 to suit working in a variety of lighting conditions, and the sensor and processor combination also provides a 5 fps continuous shooting rate as well as Full HD 1080p video recording at 60 fps. The sensor's design also omits an optical low-pass filter in order to achieve greater sharpness and resolution from both photos and videos.

Complementing the imaging capabilities, the D3500 also features SnapBridge, which utilizes Bluetooth connectivity, for wireless sharing of images to your mobile device, including automatic sharing of 2MP images between the camera and your mobile device. The lightweight camera body incorporates a 3.0" 921k-dot LCD screen for live view monitoring and image review and, catering to first-time DSLR owners, the D3500 also features a helpful Guide Mode to aid in achieving specific photographic looks or techniques, such as how to produce shallow depth of field imagery in a helpful, step-by-step manner. Ten different Special Effects are also available in-camera to creatively refine the look of both stills and movies.

24.2MP DX-Format Sensor and EXPEED 4 Processor
The 24.2 megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 4 processor work together to produce overall high image quality with notable detail, dynamic range, color accuracy, and low-light sensitivity to a native ISO 25600. Additionally, the sensor's design omits an optical low-pass filter in order to acquire the greatest sharpness and detail from subjects. The EXPEED 4 processor also enables a wealth of speed throughout the camera system, including support for Full HD 1080p movie recording and a full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 5 fps.
SnapBridge Bluetooth Connectivity
Supporting a wealth of sharing and tagging possibilities, the D3500 features built-in SnapBridge connectivity to permit seamless transferring of imagery to a mobile device. BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) technology enables communication between the camera and a smart device, and allows for automatic 2MP image transfers as you shoot. SnapBridge requires a one-time setup, for up to five unique devices, and also works in conjunction with NIKON IMAGE SPACE for backing up files and sharing imagery.
Multi-CAM 1000 Autofocus Sensor
Benefitting the high image quality is an apt AF system that employs 11 distinct AF points to quickly acquire focus in a range of lighting conditions from -1 to +19 EV.
Full HD Movie Recording
Full HD 1920 x 1080p movie recording is supported in multiple frame rates up to 60 fps, as well as HD 720p, in the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format. During recording, full-time autofocus can be employed, with face-detection and subject-tracking capabilities, for ensured sharpness with a wide variety of subject types. Additionally, a built-in monaural microphone can be used to record high-quality sound during movie recording.
Body Design
  • Redesigned body is more compact, lighter in weight, and has nearly all of the rear controls on the right-hand side of the grip for easier one-handed control.
  • Rear 3.0" 921k-dot LCD offers a large, bright means for live view shooting, menu navigation, or image playback.
  • Eye-level pentamirror optical viewfinder provides a natural means for composing stills.
  • Built-in pop-up flash can be used to provide additional illumination when working in low-light conditions. A hot shoe is also available for working with an optional external flash.
  • The included EN-EL14a lithium-ion battery provides approximately 1550 shots per charge.
AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR Lens
Included with the camera body is the standard zoom AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 27-82.5mm. Featuring an integrated pulse stepping motor, this lens exhibits exceptionally smooth, fast, and quiet autofocus performance to suit both stills and video recording. The optical design incorporates a pair of aspherical elements and a Super Integrated Coating is also featured to suppress lens flare and ghosting. Additionally, this lens also features Vibration Reduction image stabilization to minimize the appearance of camera shake when shooting handheld.
Other Camera Features
  • A helpful Guide Mode is available to aid in becoming acquainted with the D3500 through a series of step-by-step tutorials.
  • A range of Special Effects are available to creatively refine the look of imagery in-camera, and include Night Vision, Super Vivid, Pop, Photo Illustration, Toy Camera Effect, Miniature Effect, Selective Color, Silhouette, High Key, and Low Key.
  • Picture Control modes can be directly accessed via a dedicated button and allow you to set predefined looks to imagery in-camera, and include Flat, Landscape, Monochrome, Neutral, Portrait, Standard, Vivid, and user-customizable settings.
  • Active D-Lighting helps to preserve both highlight and shadow details when working in contrast-rich scenarios, such as backlit lighting. Utilizing the EXPEED 4 processor's power, a more controlled image will be produced with brightness values closer to how they are naturally seen. This mode is suitable for working with moving subjects.
  • Scene Auto Selector is an automatic mode that intelligently identifies your subject and shooting scenario, selects a proper Scene Mode to apply, and adjusts exposure settings to best render the scene at hand.
  • Scene Modes: Auto, Auto (Flash Off), Child, Close-up, Landscape, Night Portrait, Portrait, and Sports.
  • In-Camera Image Editing features: Color Outline, Color Sketch, D-Lighting, Distortion Control, Filter Effects, Fisheye, Image Overlay, Miniature Effect, Monochrome, NEF (RAW) Processing, Painting, Perspective Control, Photo Illustration, Quick Retouch, Red-Eye Correction, Resize, Selective Color, Straighten, and Trim.
  • Language support: English, French, Portuguese (Brazil), and Spanish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for new or long time hobbyist ! I am a older hobbyist who wanted a light-weight camera that had the ability to capture great quality photographs. The D3500 is the finest camera in its class. The features of the camera are of a quality that allow a new or veteran photographer to capture very fine photos. I find the camera compares favorably with more expensive cameras of either Nikon or other brands. You can interchange all Nikon lenses and those of other manufacturers with this camera. The lens that comes with this camera is very good, and I think you will be pleased with the results from it. I would advise you to download the manual for the camera from the Nikon web cite. The manual will be invaluable to look up the many features you may be interested in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon D3500 I previously owned a Nikon D3100 and was impressed with its ability to take clear pictures. I just purchased a New Nikon D3500 and must say this camera blows away the D3100 by miles. The clarity of photos is simply amazing. I took a hand held picture of a bee on a flower and was amazed to see white hairs on his head and almost translucent wings similar to a dragon fly. WOW !! This is National Geographic stuff. I couldn't be happier with this purchase . It is hands down the Best Camera I have ever owned in over 40 years of Nikon Photography. If you want a cutting edge amazing camera then this is the one for you. I haven't even touched on the added features such as Wi-fi or burst pictures or the new Effects features. This camera is destined to become a legend in Nikon cameras.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neat little camera. Bought this hoping for a small and lightweight, go-anywhere, travel, daily carry, throw in any bag camera for when I can't be bothered with full-frame DSLRs and big zooms. And that's what I got. Haven't been using it long, obviously, but here's a few first impressions. Like all DSLRs it's got all sorts of weird and ignorable modes and programs that anyone who knows the difference between a shutter and an aperture won't ever want or need and just clutter up the controls. The paper guide thing provided in the box is next to useless. There's a much larger and more useful pdf manual available from Nikon, but you'll need to hunt it down on their website. Right now, there's no support for the D3500 in Adobe Camera RAW, but I expect that will be corrected soon. You might think Adobe and Nikon could collaborate to synchronise their releases, given how software dependant we all are these days, but apparently not. I love the light weight, small size, control positions and overall pleasant handling. You can do almost everything one-handed. Very quick and neat once you get past the usual new-camera muscle-memory hurdle. The viewinder is... adequate. If you're used to a two-control-wheel setup, this one will feel a little crippled. It pretty much asks to be left in A mode, then to use exposure compensation for adjustments from there. Manual is also quite usable (with the exposure compensation button enabling aperture control in manual mode). All workable, just not as immediate as separate wheels. ISO control, on the other hand, is a bit sad. Can't control ISO in the viewfinder. Have to lower the camera to look at the rear screen and use the 'i' button's display to change it. I'm resorting to auto-ISO, which, to be fair, seems to work pretty well, but it gets confusing quickly in manual exposure mode, and turning it off means going to a different menu.. and.. yeah, all a bit of a pitiful design, really. I guess Nikon don't intend people who care much about ISO to be a market for this one. But really, apart from the ISO mess, which I can live with, this is a very easy, responsive and pleasant to use camera. It even enables a back-button-focus control. Nice. Not much to say about the image quality other than it's really pretty marvellous. Much better than I was hoping for and a lot better than I'd expect from a camera this price. All the default settings are intended to give you generically nice looking jpegs straight out of the camera, which is fair enough. If you're planning on post-processing, you'll probably want to dial back some of the default sharpening and saturation and so on. It's all pretty tunable, once you decipher the menus. The supplied lens is equally small and tidy. The 35mm DX lens also suits it well. Bigger FX lenses function great but feel weirdly unbalanced. I can imagine getting very satisfactory results by putting a longer telephoto on this with a tripod if you ever need the extra reach. The supplied lens is surprisingly good for the price, as well. It's got this weird pointless locking feature. Not sure what that's about. Anyhow, I'm not one for pictures of brick walls, but the results look plenty sharp to me. Look out for very noticeable barrel distortion at the wide end, though, and occasional fringing (all fixable in post, once Adobe catches up). It's a slow one, of course. If you want to control dof, you'll need something like the 35mm DX. That's enough. Bottom line is this is a fantastic little combo and a steal for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera if you know how to use it You may not reach it's full potential unless you know how to use it properly, but once you learn, it's a great camera. Very thin and light, comfortable and easy to use. Solid buy.
