You can capture images with aspect ratios of 3:2 with a maximum resolution of 6000 x 4000 pixels. The D3500 can save files in RAW format and has a native ISO range of 100 to 25600, giving you more room for post-processing.

Anti-Aliasing Filter

The absence of an anti-alias (Low-pass) filter on the sensor of the Nikon D3500 is a significant aspect. While removing the anti-aliasing filter improves sharpness and detail, it also increases the likelihood that moire will appear in some scenes.

Unfortunately, the Nikon D3500’s screen is not conducive to taking selfies.


AutofocusNikon Multi-CAM 1000 autofocus sensor module with TTL phase detection, 11 focus points (including one cross-type sensor), and AF-assist illuminator (range approx. 0.5 to 3 m/1 ft 8 in. to 9 ft 10 in.)
Detection range-1 to +19 EV (ISO 100, 20°C/68°F)
Lens servoAutofocus (AF): Single-servo AF (AF-S); continuous-servo AF (AF-C); auto AF-S/AF-C selection (AF-A); predictive focus tracking activated automatically according to subject status

Manual focus (MF): Electronic rangefinder can be used
Focus pointCan be selected from 11 focus points
AF-area modeSingle-point AF, dynamic-area AF, auto-area AF, 3D-tracking (11 points)
Focus lockFocus can be locked by pressing the shutter-release button halfway (single-servo AF) or by pressing AE-L/AF-L (protect) button

Fast-moving subjects are no problem for the D3500, unlike normal smartphones. 11 autofocus points are dispersed throughout the frame, and full-time AF locks onto your subject and maintains it in focus as you take incredible pictures after incredible pictures.

The major problem is that the scene can only be partially covered by the 11 autofocus points. There isn’t much you can do if your subject is between autofocus points or outside of their boundaries (at least in the viewfinder; live view has thousands of autofocus points, allowing you to place the focus sensor essentially wherever you want in the frame).

There isn’t much you can do if your subject is between autofocus points or outside of their boundaries (at least in the viewfinder; live view has thousands of autofocus points, allowing you to place the focus sensor essentially wherever you want in the frame).

Positively, the D3500 comes with the newest AF-P zoom kit lenses from Nikon, which provide better autofocus performance during video recording, including fast speeds as well as smoother and quieter autofocus. In our evaluation of that camera, we bemoaned the D3400’s subpar video functionality, and little has really changed.

You may capture videos with the Nikon D3500 at a maximum quality of 1920 x 1080 at 60, 50, 30, 25, or 24 frames per second and save them in MPEG-4 and H.264 codecs. In most circumstances, the Nikon D3500’s Full HD resolution will be sufficient.

A Stereo microphone and a Mono speaker are also included inside the D3500. Nikon D3500, on the other hand, lacks hookups for external microphones and headphones. If you require a DSLR camera with compatibility with an external microphone

It is frustrating that the D3500’s maximum video resolution is only Full HD (1920 x 1080), even though there may not be many cameras at this price point that can shoot 4K UHD footage. The camera has a maximum recording time per clip that varies based on the video quality and can capture 1080p video at up to 60 frames per second.

 You have a recording time limit of 29 minutes and 59 seconds when shooting at standard quality. The longest clip allowed at the highest quality is 20 minutes. Using H.264/MPEG-4 video compression, the D3500 records videos in the.MOV format. There are no audio inputs or outputs on the camera, only a built-in monaural microphone, and speaker.

In our evaluation of that camera, we bemoaned the D3400’s subpar video functionality, and little has really changed.

Compatible Lenses

Autofocus supportAutofocus is available with AF-P and type E and G AF-S lenses

There are presently many native lenses that can be used with the Nikon D3500’s Nikon F lens mount. Nikon F mount has one of the widest selections of lenses and has backward compatibility, allowing you to use lenses dating back to the 1960s. Additionally, it is highly supported by lenses made by independent producers.

The Nikon D3500 has a minor drawback in that it lacks an internal focus motor, making it incompatible with older screw-drive autofocus (AF) lenses. With contemporary Nikon AF-S, AF-I, and G lenses, it continues to function effectively, while lenses from the 1980s may not autofocus on the Nikon D3500.

The D3500’s simplicity of use is a significant feature. You can use the D3500’s User Guide function to learn more about shooting modes like aperture priority, shutter speed priority, and manual mode as well as how to capture specific objects. 

There are many scene modes available if you would prefer the camera to select your settings for you. Auto, Auto (flash off), Child, Close-up, Landscape, Night Portrait, Portrait, Sports, and a Special Effects mode are among the scene modes (Night Vision; Super Vivid; Pop; Photo Illustration; Toy Camera Effect; Miniature Effect; Selective Color; Silhouette; High Key; Low Key).

The camera also has Active D-Lighting control and in-camera raw processing (but simply gives you “on” and “off” options, rather than different “strength” setting like there are on certain more expensive Nikon cameras).

Nikon D3500 specifications and key features have made it clear that this camera is best for beginner photography use. The features are excellent and somewhat meet the modern requirements. The camera provides all basic and advanced level options for a good level of production. You should choose the lens for appropriate use in order to get the best results.


Is Nikon D3500 good for beginners?

The Nikon D3500 can be considered a good choice for beginners if you’re prepared to enhance your photographic abilities and buy your first DSLR camera. Its top-of-the-line 24-megapixel sensor excels in low-light conditions and can capture clear photographs with excellent dynamic range, meaning both bright and dark areas will display details.

What is special about Nikon D3500?

The Nikon D3500 is a 24 Megapixel entry-level DSLR with an APS-C CMOS sensor that replaces the D3400 and is less expensive, lighter, and has a longer battery life. Because it was created with beginning photographers in mind, it has a Guide Mode that effectively shows you how to shoot in different scenarios.

Can Nikon D3500 get wet?

YES Is the Nikon D3500 waterproof or weather-sealed? The Nikon D3500 is not in any way weatherproof, waterproof, or ruggedized. Therefore, you should use caution while it’s wet outside.

How long can the Nikon D3500 record for?

You can record for as long as 29 minutes and 59 seconds while shooting at standard quality. The longest clip is 20 minutes at the highest quality. The D3500 makes records.

Is Nikon D3500 good for videography?

Comparatively NO. The D3500 can record 1080 and 720p video at framerates ranging from 24 to 60, as was already announced. The HD video resolutions of 1080p and 720p are both suitable for web video. Both are considerably less than the 4K, 5K, or 8K that some other cameras are capable of recording. Instead of “resolution,” the D3500 uses “frame size.”

Can Nikon D3500 shoot in RAW?

YES. The D3500 does, as expected, collect raw files, however, these are only 12-bit data instead of the 14-bit raw data recorded by models higher up the Nikon range.

Does Nikon D3500 have microphone?

Since the Nikon D3500 DSLR camera lacks a mic jack and cannot comment on the use of any third-party products, it is not compatible with this model of the microphone.

Is the Nikon D3500 good for night photography?

YES. If you are genuinely interested in night photography, the Nikon D3500’s ability to adjust shutter speeds up to 30 seconds and its Bulb mode for exposure lengths of virtually any length are both very welcome features.

Does Nikon D3500 have touch screen?

NO. Look at DSLR models like the Nikon D5600 or the Nikon D7500 if you want a camera with this function. A touch screen is not available on the D3500. Think about the D5600 or D7500 as alternatives if you want a touch screen.

Does Nikon D3500 have image stabilization?

NO. The D3500 camera body lacks an internal vibration reduction system (image stabilization). The 18-55 VR Lens that is included in this package is one of the lenses that you can attach to the camera because it has vibration reduction (image stabilization).

Does the D3500 shoot 4K?

NO. The D3500 cannot capture 4K video. Small 4K action cameras are available for less money. The D3500 can record 1080 and 720p video at framerates ranging from 24 to 60

Does Nikon D3500 have autofocus?

NO. Since the Nikon D3500 DSLR camera’s built-in focus motor is lacking, AF-type lenses like the Nikon AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8 D lens must be manually focused. 05

Is Nikon D3500 good for product photography?

YES. It has an optical sensor and a maximum resolution of 24.7 megapixels. With a high-level reflex viewfinder and Bluetooth connectivity, it has a three-times zoom that can magnify the subject. In conclusion, the Nikon D3500 captures everything beautifully for product photography.

Is the Nikon D3500 good for low light?

NO. The Nikon D3500 has a lot of excellent features, but the autofocus mechanism is not one of them. The 11-point focusing system struggles with moving targets has a limited working range of -1 to +19 EV in low light, and simply doesn’t have enough autofocus points.

Does Nikon D3500 have built in WIFI?

NO. Wi-Fi functionality is not available on the D3500. As a result, when utilized with the D3500, some SnapBridge capabilities that are compatible with other Nikon cameras may not be supported or may operate differently. Using the SnapBridge Version 2.0, remote photography through a Bluetooth® connection is feasible.

Does Nikon D3500 record sound?

YES but with a built-in stereo microphone. You probably already know that the Nikon D3500 lacks an audio input jack if you own one of these cameras. Oopsy! This does make things more difficult if you want to add a professional microphone, but you’ll have to bring it up with Nikon. Using adapters, you can attempt a workaround, although it might not be successful.

Can the Nikon D3500 do time lapse?

NO. Nikon D3500 DSLR camera doesn’t include a time-lapse movie capability but it is capable of taking a photo with a self-timer. Look at DSLR models like the Nikon D5600 or the Nikon D7500 if you want a camera with this function.
