Add to that a superior kit lens and a mode specifically designed to teach beginners how to shoot and you end up with a camera that makes it easier for beginners to capture better images.The D3400 edged out its predecessor, the Nikon D3300, which has been our pick for the past two years running, but if you don’t care about Bluetooth, the Nikon D3300 will get you almost identical image quality, a stronger flash, a built-in panorama mode (dropped in the D3400) and sensor cleaning. If you plan to focus on video and are willing to sacrifice usability and still-image quality for better video features, the Canon T5i is a good option (and for most beginners, it makes more sense than the newer T6i on account of its substantially lower price).DSLRs have much larger imaging sensors than budget point-and-shoots and smartphones (which means better performance with less light and being able to capture a wider range of lights and darks in a single image), more manual controls (which let you fine-tune how your photos will look), and the versatility of interchangeable lenses for different subjects (which means more options for capturing the perspective you want).They also let you use high-power flashes so you can control your lighting conditions, and most DSLRs today can even record impressive HD video footage—better than your old camcorder—with external microphones for a soundtrack that matches your images.

Nikon continues to put better sensors into its entry-level cameras than main rival Canon, which means you get cleaner images when you shoot in low light and can capture a wider range of darks and lights in a single photo.
