GET A TASTE OF D-SLR QUALITY: CRISP ACTION SHOTS, PORTRAITS WITH SOFT BACKGROUNDS AND MORE

If the pictures you take with your smart device leave you wanting more, just wait until you get your hands on the D3500. Images of indoor gigs and parties capture the best moments with minimal blur. Majestic landscape shots taken while hiking stay tack sharp even after aggressive cropping. Impressive portraits make your subjects stand out against beautifully soft backgrounds. Zooming in on distant subjects is possible without losing any image resolution. Thanks to a range of exclusive Nikon technologies, the D3500 lets you do all this — and much, much more.


TECHNOLOGIES BEHIND THE IMAGE QUALITY: DX-FORMAT IMAGE SENSOR FEATURING 24.2 EFFECTIVE MEGAPIXELS, EXPEED 4 IMAGE-PROCESSING ENGINE, PICTURE CONTROL SYSTEM AND NIKKOR LENSES

The superb images you get with the D3500 are attained through a combination of unrivaled Nikon technologies working together. The D3500 achieves a wide standard sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600. Thanks to its EXPEED 4 image-processing engine, which effectively reduces image noise, you get clear pictures even in low-light scenes. Harnessing 24.2 effective megapixels and the superb optical performance of Nikon’s NIKKOR lenses, the camera renders your subjects in beautiful, crisp pictures. Finally, there’s Nikon’s image creation system, Picture Control, which helps make your images look even better.

 


BEAUTIFULLY BALANCING LIGHT AND SHADE: ACTIVE D-LIGHTING

In pictures of outdoor activities under the sun or a room with a bright window, the details and color gradation in a bright sky or dark shadows may sometimes be lost. But thanks to the EXPEED 4 image-processing engine, the D3500’s Active D-Lighting preserves more tones in both areas, capturing moments with true-to-life brightness.

 


ADJUST THE ATMOSPHERE TO FIT YOUR VISION: NIKON’S PICTURE CONTROL SYSTEM

Picture Control is Nikon’s simple image creation system. The D3500 incorporates seven types of preset Picture Control — Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait, Landscape and Flat — which you can select before shooting, according to the subject and situation. Each Picture Control option lets you fine-tune image characteristics, such as sharpening and contrast, depending on your own creative intentions. Picture Control can also be set using the guide mode.

 


EASY-TO-HOLD GRIP AND SIMPLE-TO-OPERATE DESIGN FOR COMFORTABLE SHOOTING

The D3500 is designed to offer great image quality within a smaller and lighter D-SLR body than the D3400. It employs the same sophisticated monocoque structure as the D5600, allowing it to offer a slimmer form and deeper grip. The thumb rest space is now larger, while the operation buttons are concentrated on the right side and the playback button has been enlarged. All of these improvements give the camera a functional design that enables easy, comfortable operation with the right hand.
