    Along with my workhorse D70, I bought a brand new Nikon D3400 in 2016, as soon as I had the cash to do so. Although it's considered an "entry-level" DSLR for "hobbiests and begginners" I've found it to be an incredibly complex camera with both amazing features and, with the right lenses, the perfect DSLR for any photography project.

    I've been working with it since it was introduced although I must admit, I haven't used it much for video production, although it has that capability in a full HD 10480 setting. The reason for this is that I wanted the newest Nikon as I'd be using it through the next decade at least. . . that being said the previous version 3300 had a mike port for external audio, which this version does not. With A/V technology as it is today, I think Nikon knows that a good videographer uses their own audio source equipment then mixes it in studio. Heck, that technology has been around for a decade.

    Getting back to the photography side of things, there are several interesting special effects built into the camera but being an old photograph snob, I still shoot the old way. You'll find my D3400 set to manual. . . I shoot with my eye on lighting, exposure, depth of field, and focus.

    Back in my Navy days, a fellow photojournalist had the perfect vanity license tag on her Porche: F8NBTHR (F-8 And Be There), I might need to steal that tag idea. If you're looking for a photographer that uses the old ways in tandem with new technology to give you the very best in images, then you've found me.
