When it comes to performance and functionality, the Nikon D3500 has quite a couple of things to offer. First of all, if we need to talk about the quality of image as well as image processing, then in the simplest of terms, I would say that this camera gives some really high end results.

Moreover, since the DSLR comes equipped with a powerful EXPEED Nikon processor, it allows the camera to shoot and produce some of the best quality, high contrasted sharp images. Something, which you can just expect to see in most high-end DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. And this, for this very reason, the segment in which the Nikon D3500 stands today, among all its competitors it is quite the player.

Build and Design:

Coming to build and design, the camera you could say is just perfect for carrying as well as handling for any long duration of time as you like. As it just weighs around 415 grams, carrying the DSLR for long hours on treks and journeys is just something you need not worry about at all.

Also, the overall built and material quality of the camera is such that it offers a really sturdy and firm feel to it, giving you the ability to move and maneuver the camera in which ever way you want to and need to without having to worry about any kind of easy damage.

And lastly, adding up to the design factors, the controls buttons you will find on the camera are placed in such a manner, that it makes it completely easy and efficient for the user to go on controlling this piece of tech effortlessly.

What You Get Inside This Box ?

Some Other Techies Explained:

Now, the Nikon D3500 comes with a fixed rare screen at the back giving a viewing angle of around 1700, which according to me is just fine for any user who is just a beginner and does not need to work on professional levels.

However, if you are more fond of a touch-screen screen or love to have a screen that rotates according to your convenience, then I guess this DSLR would not suit your taste.

Again, the 3 inch rare display which we just talked about gives a good dot resolution of 921000 which is pretty good I would say for a camera in such a price range.

Also, the 11 point Auto-focus system which comes equipped with the camera enables tracking of objects really easy and smooth for users both beginner as well as pros.

And, when all of this works together with the EXPEED Nikon processor mentioned earlier, the picture quality you achieve out of this gadget is just pure quality.

And last but not the least, if we need to talk about the connectivity sadly in the Nikon D3500 DSLR you wont be finding any Wi-fi connectivity. However, the blue-tooth connectivity which comes along equipped with the camera works just fine and can be used for transfer of files easily and efficiently without hassle of any kind.
