Nikon D3400 DSLR camera now shipping in the US.
DxOMark tested the Nikon D3400 camera ($496.95) and called it a "new class leader.
While the bump in image quality is welcome, it’s not as though the D3300 was underperforming in any way, at least when compared with its rivals.
Just a quick update: the Nikon D3400 DSLR camera is currently shipping in the US and Focus Camera has few in stock already.
Simultaneously, the company has also adjusted the curve for its battery indication so that battery life will be shown to reduce more gradually, rather than suddenly dropping off a cliff after a certain amount of usage.
Another bug corrected in the new release involved a camera lockup if a command dial was used in the movie record button item of the custom control assignment menu.
