Nikon D3500 vs Nikon D3400

Tech specs on paper and my thoughts.  

I think we are seeing the end of the DSLR camera when a camera company like Nikon publishes the same camera again, exactly the same camera like the Nikon D3400, I have been comparing the specs on paper between those two cameras and the only thing I can see different is the camera has a better grip also better Battery and better guide menu then the D3400, I don’t think that is enough for upgrading the camera D3400 to D3500 the camera body.

Why is Nikon company doing this?

I think we are going to see something similar with other Nikon DSLR cameras next three to maybe five years, they are going to publish the same camera again with the S on the end – D850s – D5s – D7500s – until the mirrorless cameras take over, they are just buying time for the designers who are designing all the new mirrorless cameras and to keep some of us happy in the meantime.

If you are thinking about buying the Nikon D3500 I recommend you to look closer on the specs and go for the D3400 or even D3300, look for the best price.
