Nikon D3500 REVIEW / Hands On PHOTO SHOOT | BEST CAMERA Kit for Under $500?!

Since the Nikon introduction of the Nikon D3000 all the way back in 2009, Nikon has put out super affordable entry level DSLR’s. Now in 2019 they have continued to do so with the Nikon D3500 which comes in at under $400 with one lens and under $500 with two lenses.

I decided to take the D3500 out into the Real World to see how it handles shooting college gymnastics. I used the two kit lenses, 18-55 and 70-300 as well as the Nikon 70-200 2.8E FL professional lens. I wanted to show you how you can take control of your camera and get quality results even with the kit lenses.

In my opinion, if you are just starting out or have a kid who’s interested in photography, you can not go wrong with this basic setup. Remember what I always say about glass. GLASS GLASS GLASS GLASS GLASS. The sooner you realize the importance of glass, the sooner you will start to see the images being captured you want to see. That doesn’t mean you wont get quality results with the kit lenses, it just means, learn the basics first, then progress into better glass.
