Nikon D3500 Camera Review – Fast Single ShotAF Performance
The Nikon D3500 camera reviewed here is one of many models in the D series. Like many of the reviews, the one thing the D is known for is its size and weight. It is also well known for having some great features. The D is especially popular for professional photographers. The D is definitely a step up from the cheap point and shoot cameras.
The Nikon D3500 has many of the same features as many of the top level professional level cameras on the market today. The biggest thing that sets this camera apart from its competition is the fact that it is an affordable professional level camera. The body is much smaller than others on this list, and it has an extremely fast f/stop, a powerful optical zoom lens, lots of manual controls, and an incredibly long battery. This combination of great image quality, compact design, and affordability has made the D popular with professional photographers.
There are three major differences between the D and the competition. First, this camera has a lens with a wider range of focal lengths. This alone should make it easy to cover everything from wedding photography to portrait work to wildlife imaging. Many professional level photographers use a lens with a 30mm focal length, and the D’s lens is just the right size for this range. Image stabilization is another great technology found on these cameras.
Second, many cameras have one large viewfinder, and this is great for beginners, but can be limiting to advanced photographers. The D has a large viewfinder that can switch from a split screen to a single viewfinder, allowing the photographer to focus in on one subject without switching to the viewfinder.
The ability to change the background of the shot, as well as the ability to preview shots in full resolution is another hallmark of the D. The D can take great still shots with a huge amount of clarity. The viewfinder has a dimmer setting for those shooting in low light conditions. The ability to preview shots at different ISO speeds is an amazing feature for anyone who is struggling with their exposure.
Third, the D uses a new image-stabilizing system, called the Nikon Durance system. The D is one of the few cameras on the market with this type of technology. It works to help reduce blurring caused by moving objects. This feature is especially helpful when taking photographs of moving subjects. The result is an amazingly clear and detailed picture that does not sacrifice image quality for reduced blurring.
Fourth, the D uses an Aps-C sensor to determine shutter speed. Some cameras automatically set the shutter speed based on the memory card. The Aps-C sensor automatically determines the best shutter speed based on the image and light available. The combination of these two technologies results in much better images and pictures taken with the Nikon D3500 Camera than with some of the competing cameras.
Fifth, the Nikon D3500 Camera has an optical viewfinder. Most mirrorless cameras have to switch from the LCD screen to the viewfinder when you are taking a photo. This is because the LCD screen is usually non-transparent, making it difficult to see the subject. However, the Aps-C sensor in the Nikon D3500 Camera allows for a clear view of the subject even when it is illuminated. In addition, the camera includes an optical viewfinder, which is the first time this has been seen in a mirrorless camera.
These are just a few of the many benefits of using the Nikon D3500 Camera for professional photography. These cameras allow for fast single-shot af performance while providing photographers with images that are more like photo prints than they would be as if taken with a normal camera. Even the Nikon D3500’s fast motor speeds allow for excellent low-light performance. These factors, combined with the fact that the camera incorporates an optical viewfinder, make the Nikon D3500 Camera one of the best compact cameras available for professional use.
