  • EXPEED 4 Image Processor
  • No Optical Low-Pass Filter
  • Native ISO 100-25600; 5 fps Shooting

Internally, the camera remains quite like its predecessor, with a 24.2MP
DX-format CMOS sensor and the EXPEED 4 processor delivering sharp, crisp
imagery at sensitivities up to ISO 25600. It can also operate at up to 5
fps when shooting continuously and offers Full HD video recording at up
to 60 fps. And, the 0.85x optical viewfinder, 11-point AF system, and
3.0" 921k-dot rear LCD all make a return.

Where the D3500 differs is in its looks and feel. The camera has an
improved grip for ergonomics, a button layout more in line with the
D5000-series DSLRs, and has Bluetooth for SnapBridge compatibility and
near-immediate sharing of images to your smart devices. The D3500 is an
ideal step up for photographers looking to upgrade from a compact or
even a smartphone because it provides a Guide Mode and smart auto
results to introduce shooters to various settings and controls in a
clear manner. It is also a great choice for travel and vacation—it
weighs just 12.9 oz, measures 4.9 x 3.9 x 2.8", and has a rated CIPA
battery life of 1,550 shots per charge.

You can purchase the D3500
with the 18-55mm VR Lens
or in a two-lens
kit that adds a 70-300mm lens
