Best For: Beginners
Budding photographers who are just starting out will want something simple, easy to use but still impressive, and for those looking for a good all-rounder that doesn’t require hours of tutorials, the Nikon D3400 Camera is ideal.
Whether you’re taking photos or video, the large 24.2 megapixel DX-format sensor works with Nikon’s powerful EXPEED 4 image processor and the NIKKOR lens to guarantee impeccable, detailed shots. The wide ISO light-sensitivity range means you can capture clear results, even in low light conditions, and its SnapBridge technology allows you to share images to your social feeds instantly via Bluetooth technology. There’s also a built-in special effects setting, so you can edit your images adding creative filters, or changing the composition to ensure each photo is just what you want.
Best For: Action Shots
Waterproof, shockproof, freeze-proof and dustproof, this action camera is one for adrenaline junkies, capable of capturing all your outdoor moments in 4K UHD. From road trips to festival frolics, this is the ultimate accessory for on-the-go adventures. Attach to helmets, wrist straps or even the side of the car, if you want to snap away at stunning landscapes. The 360° footage means you can take panoramic shots wherever you are, and the interchangeable and rechargeable EN-EL12 Li-ion battery will last as long as the fun does.
There’s a Superlapse movie function, so you can capture a subject in changing scenes and settings with minimal effort, and you can share your photos instantly by pairing up to either your tablet or phone via Bluetooth, perfect for sharing your snaps.
