The Nikon D3400 is a 24.2-megapixel DX format DSLR Nikon F-mount camera officially launched by Nikon on August 17, 2016.[1] It is marketed as an entry-level DSLR camera for beginners and experienced DSLR hobbyists. It replaces the D3300 as Nikon's entry level DSLR.

Nikon offers a body/lens kit combinations that varies from country to country. In most countries the D3400 is available with an AF-P 18-55 mm kit lens that includes Nikon's image stabilization (Vibration Reduction, VR). In the US there is an unusual two lens kit option offered only with the black body.[2] The 18-55 mm lens has VR but the second lens being a 70-300 mm is the non-VR variant for a total of US$999.[3]

The D3400 is available in a black or red body.

The D3400 was superseded as Nikon's entry-level camera by the D3500 in August 2018.
