The Nikon D3500 is a great camera. It is a single-lens reflex digital camera that can shoot 24.2 megapixels and has a total pixel of 24.78 million for which you can choose to take photos in different sizes, particularly, 6000 x 4000 (Large: 24.0 M), 4496 x 3000 (Medium: 13.5 M), and 2992 x 2000 (Small: 6.0 M).
The D3500 is an entry-level DLSR for those who are just starting to love photography and want to learn how. It is great for beginners with its simple and user-friendly controls. The specs of this camera are also entry-level but you still get a great deal out of it and you will still be able to play with different modes and take awesome photographs.
What makes the Nikon D3500 bundle such a great deal is because you get the camera body and an 18-55mm lens for just $499. With this, you no longer have to look for a lens that will suit your camera because it already comes in the package. You may still replace its lens if you choose to take photos in different ways with the Nikon F mount (with AF contacts).
The only downside for this camera is that it does not support 4k video and has a relatively slow live view AF. However, the 4k video feature is not really that big of a problem if you will not be using this camera professionally as a videographer. If you will simply use it for taking photos or for simple vlogging, then this camera is already perfect and you’re all suit.
This camera is also really lightweight with a bodyweight of just 415g and has a body size of 124 x 97 x 69.5mm. It also has 11-point AF, 1 cross-type AF points, and an ISO range of 100 to 25,600. It also has a sensor of 24.2MP APS-C CMOS 4, 23.5 x 15.6mm, an EXPEED 4 processor, and can shoot up to 5 frames per second. It also has special effects built-in for you to be able to add effects on your photos without the use of third-party apps and accessories. It also has a guide mode to help you learn your way through.
Indeed the Nikon D3500 bundle is a great kit for beginners and photographers on a budget.
