The D3500 has an effective pixel count of 24.2 megapixels and supports a standard sensitivity range of ISO 100–25600.When used with a NIKKOR lens, it makes the capture of a wide variety of scenes simpler and more enjoyable, with the superior image quality and beautiful bokeh characteristics expected of a digital SLR. This DSLR is constructed with the same slim and lightweight monocoque structure as the Nikon D5600, as well as with a deep grip that offers an easy hold on the camera and makes for more comfortable shooting. A new layout for operational controls, including an even larger playback button, and adjustment and concentration of the most important buttons at right on the back of the camera, enables a user-operation that is smooth and intuitive, even for beginners.
In addition, a constant connection1 between the D3500 and a smart device2 is possible using the SnapBridge app and Bluetooth® technology. JPEG thumbnails (2 megapixels) of images captured with the camera can be automatically transferred3 to the smart device, and the latest version of the app, SnapBridge Ver. 2.5, can be used to control remote capture of still images from the smart device over a Bluetooth® connection.
The camera is an easily adaptable, entry-level model that makes it possible for users to readily capture impressive photos while also simplifying the sharing of favourite photos on social networking sites using a smart device.
