As we go through numerous steps in our journey of discovery of the camera. I will give you my opinions and my personal thoughts on some of the many items and do dads that are available to aid in your photography. I will be doing numerous beginner DSLR camera reviews.
Well lets start with what I believe is a great starter DSLR camera for the Nikon enthusiast the Nikon D3400 kit bundle, if you are just starting out and have no other equipment. This kit will give you a second zoom lens. I checked the price and I think this is a great value.
But if you are just wanting to start out with the camera and one all around lens I would suggest the Nikon D3400 body with the 18 – 55mm lens.
Here are the company specs for the Nikon D3400 with a few of my notes.
- 24.2 MP CMOS DX-format sensor — This will give you adequate file size when set to large fine for enlargements
- 5 frames per second continuous shooting — The 5 frames per second mode when you hold the trigger and shoot rapid fire on a moving object, person or animal.
- 11 AF points with 3D tracking — helps with fast focusing
- ISO 100-12800 (expandable to 25600) — range for shooting in a variety of lighting situations
- 1080 (60, 50, 30, 25, 24 fps) HD video (MPEG-4/H.264/MOV)
- 3 inch LCD with 921,000 dots — for clearer preview of images shot
- Expeed 4 processing
- Easy panorama mode and beginner-friendly Guide mode — I think this an excellent helper for the beginner to get acquainted with what this camera can do.
- Wi-Fi enabled with WU-1a Wireless Adapter and compatible smartphone or tablet (not included)
- — This is a neat feature so that you can view or send your images to your smart phone or larger table screen

you will need to check your manual to find out the recommended size and writing speed.
