Nikon announced the release of its new entry-level digital SLR camera, the Nikon D3500. The camera features an effective pixel count of 24.2-megapixels and comes with a Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor.

The Nikon D3500 includes an Expeed image processor and offers a native ISO range of 100-25600 along with an 11-point autofocus system.

The camera comes with a special 'Guide Mode' which makes it easy for beginners to get started.

The most commonly used control buttons are placed on the right-hand side of the camera's LCD display.

Users can automatically transfer their photos using the SnapBridge app and a Bluetooth connection. The app enables a constant connection between the devices so that all the photos captured on the camera can be quickly transferred to a compatible device.

Nikon promises an increased battery life with approximately 1,550 shots on a single charge.

Meanwhile, the D3400 was capable of taking around 1,200 shots per single charge.

The Nikon D3500 offers an easy interface for new DSLR users to get into some serious photography. The company claims the camera is both lightweight and extremely easy to use.

The built-in sharing options also make it simpler to share photos directly from the camera.

The camera will be available from September 20 globally. The Nikon D3500 is priced at $499.95 (roughly Rs 35,200) with 18-55mm VR lens kit and at $849.95 (roughly Rs 59,900) with two lens kits consisting of 18-55mm and 70-300mm lens.
