Latest entry-level model makes it easy to share impressive photos using a smart device
Nikon Middle East FZE has launched the new Nikon D3500, an entry-level Nikon DX-format DSLR camera.
According to the vendor, the new DSLR is targeted at those who are new to photography and seeking to step up their game.
"Photography is fast becoming a second nature for many of us as we enjoy taking photos wherever we are, be it in a dinner party or during a holiday. Yet these photos are not just flashes of moments, they also represent memories that we want to preserve in great image quality and splendid clarity, and this is where the Nikon D3500 comes in to support this enthusiasm," said Narendra Menon, managing director, Nikon Middle East FZE. "Easy operability for high quality images, users will find this new DSLR a breeze to use and explore their photography with."
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.
The D3500 is constructed with the same slim and lightweight monocoque structure as the Nikon D5600 and has 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 connection between the D3500 and a smart device is possible using the SnapBridge app and Bluetooth technology. JPEG thumbnails (2 megapixels) of images captured with the camera can be automatically transferred to a smart device using the latest version of the app, SnapBridge version 2.5.
