The Nikon D3500 is an entry-level 24.2-megapixel DX-format DSLR Nikon F-mount camera announced by Nikon on August 30, 2018. The D3500 is available with two kits: with an 18-55mm lens and a two-lens kit. It succeeds in the Nikon D3400. In 2019, the D3500 won the TIPA Best DSLR Camera award.



“Fact fans might be grinding their teeth at the relatively small list of changes Nikon has made compared to the two-year-old Nikon D3400, but that’s not the point. Nikon has refreshed and rejuvenated one of its classic designs to keep it fresh, responsive and appealing to first-time DSLR buyers. In fact, it’s so good that it makes you wonder whether mirrorless cameras are quite such a revolution after all.”
