      Answer

      Yes, the Nikon D3400 DSLR camera has a Nikon F bayonet mount system that allows the user to use different Nikon lenses. The Nikon D3400 DSLR camera is fully compatible with Nikon AF-S, AF-P and E-type lenses. Nikon AI and AF-type lenses can also be used but must be focused manually as the Nikon D3400 camera does not have a built-in focus motor. The Nikon F bayonet is designed to support Nikon lenses.

      Answer

      The Nikon D3400 DSLR camera can focus automatically when using using AF-S, AF-P or E-type lenses, as each of these types of lenses has a built-in autofocus motor. Some DSLR camera bodies have a built-in focus motor and can use AF-type lenses in addition to the previously mentioned lens types. There are also cameras that are considered to be all automatic, or point and shoot, that do not use interchangeable lenses. The Nikon D3400 listed here comes with an AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens that will autofocus when you press the camera's shutter-release button down halfway. To learn more about which camera is right for your needs please contact Nikon Support.

      Answer

      The Nikon D3400 DSLR camera has a continuous shooting option that allows you to get up to 5 frames per second. There are also settings and modes that will allow you to freeze motion. Placing the camera in "P" mode and choosing a low f-number will help you to freeze motion. You can also try placing it in "S" Mode which will allow you to choose a faster (low f-number) shutter speed; the camera will then automatically adjust aperture for optimal exposure. There is also an option of "Sports Mode" which chooses all the settings for you and automatically puts it in the continuous shooting setting. To learn more about how to get the most out of your camera please contact Nikon Support.

    Would you say this lens is sufficient enough for scenic/portrait/low-light shots without having to purchase an additional lens? Looking to take this camera on vacation with a lot of hikes and excursions without having to change lenses.   (2 Answers)

      Answer

      Yes, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR is a lightweight and versatile lens that will allow you to capture wide landscapes, tight portraits and everything in-between. This lens uses Nikon's Vibration Reduction (VR) technology to reduce the shakiness that can come from handheld shooting so images are always tack-sharp and videos are consistently steady, even in dimly-lit situations. To learn more please contact Nikon Support.
