B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the Nikon D3500 DSLR Camera. This camera is the company’s smallest and most portable DSLR and presents users with a redesigned control scheme that makes it more comfortable, in addition to already stellar technical specifications.

Internally, the camera remains quite like its predecessor, with a 24.2MP DX-format CMOS sensor and the EXPEED 4 processor delivering sharp, crisp imagery at sensitivities up to ISO 25600. It can also operate at up to 5 fps when shooting continuously and offers Full HD video recording at up to 60 fps. And, the 0.85x optical viewfinder, 11-point AF system, and 3.0″ 921k-dot rear LCD all make a return.
Where the D3500 differs is in its looks and feel. The camera has an improved grip for ergonomics, a button layout more in line with the D5000-series DSLRs, and has Bluetooth for SnapBridge compatibility and near-immediate sharing of images to your smart devices. The D3500 is an ideal step up for photographers looking to upgrade from a compact or even a smartphone because it provides a Guide Mode and smart auto results to introduce shooters to various settings and controls in a clear manner. It is also a great choice for travel and vacation—it weighs just 12.9 oz, measures 4.9 x 3.9 x 2.8″, and has a rated CIPA battery life of 1,550 shots per charge.
You can purchase the D3500 with the 18-55mm VR Lens or in a two-lens kit that adds a 70-300mm lens.
