Go in to a store and have a feel of which camera you like. Intended up getting a Sony mirror less despite going in to buy a canon. The Nikon Aldo have good feel though generally

I have this camera. This only has Bluetooth capability and not wifi. The Bluetooth link is crap and takes forever. If i could make a decision now I would get one with wifi link. Camera itself is decent for entry level

Same. This camera is just the latest version so should be more of the same.

Neither bluetooth or wifi is necessary. If you want the best quality pictures you should be shooting these in RAW and then transfer them to your computer to edit.

If the OP is wanting WIFI maybe try the D5300.

I shoot RAW and like to view on a better quality screen as I go. Using WiFi to connect to my tablet is much easier on the go, and much lighter to carry. Plus, editing tools on tablets are getting much better so someone shooting great shots the first place won’t need thei4 PC.
Any positive aspect of a non vr lens?

Do you think that any professional photographer would not use their PC?

Of course you can make some ok/good looking photos through various apps but if anybody wants the best out of their photos they will be using Lightroom/Photoshop.

Cost. That's all. If you're taking pictures regularly on a tripod (with a shutter release cable or app) or only taking photos in bright daylight situations, you would not need VR. I'm not exactly sure how much impact VR makes generally as I've just got used to the lenses and how fast I can shoot (shutter speed/ISO/aperture settings) in different situations.
Based on this I must say Nikon seems to have better body for beginners:

Do not have xp with neither of these though on paper Nikon looks better.
Anyone know how long the discount code is running for? Reserved for instore collection tomorrow so hope it does not change by then. Asked on the online chat but Argos assistant was clueless and could not tell me. Don’t even think he knew there was a promotion on. Lol

depends on budget as well - a 'full set' of lenses is much cheaper on canon

What is your definition of professional? Photography is down to the skills and capabilities of the photographer more than those of the camera.
I've had the D3200 for a few years and I'm pretty happy with it
it's not the best camera, but using some fairly cheap telephoto lenses I've gotten some good pics of wildlife I'd otherwise not have had any chance of getting
not sure about paying 350 for the D3400 though. I could swear my D3200 was cheaper than that

Wikipedia:
A professional is a member of a profession or any person who earns their living from a specified professional activity.

Definition has Nothing to do with skills or equipment. But how many professionals do you think could be looking at a £350 budget dslr? To use it with software that cost more than this camera
What SD card goes with this just bought this for my daughter for school photography classes, she's been after a DSLR for ages and will be learning the basics, guessing SDXC, last card i bought was 32gb for a camera but a lot has changed

I have the 5200. No wifi or bluetooth. But simple enough to take out the SD card and attach to a phone, tablet or computer. I don't really see the need for WIFI or bluetooth on a DSLR.

sandisk extreme pro is about as fast as the camera can use
the red kingston are almost as fast and a bit cheaper

(d3300 seems to be same or similar speed as d5500 so would assume d3400 is too)
for photography a 32gb card is still a load of space but all depends on budget

i'm assuming that you are using a microsd rather than a full size sd card which is much more common? otherwise most common way of attaching would be sellotape...

ah right i see so you need another device
the hotspots for wifi are generally local ones made by the camera aren't they?
guess different choices just

Yes, but if you are carrying around a DSLR, Tripod, Batteries and other accessories I think a tiny cable to plug into the phone is nothing.

Of course. You are correct. I was just making the point to make people aware of alternatives. Not everyone knows about such things.
DSLR cameras are still a bit on the big side to take out casually "just in case".
I take photos professionally as part of my living and would have absolutely no hesitation in using this to do so from an image quality standpoint. To all intents and purposes, the images will be as good as that found on a a D5 or D850, top end Nikons costing into the thousands.

What pro's want though is toughness, reliability and convenience. So that means a much stronger body to take the knocks, twin card slots, weather sealing, more buttons rather than having to use menus, and a 2nd dial at the top so that aperture and shutter speed can be changed quicker to name a few things.

A drive motor for older AF-D lenses is a must as well.

Same here. The low light sensitivity of the sensor is incredible. With a good lens a flash becomes almost redundant.
As already mentioned, same price as John Lewis if you agree to trade in an old camera. Doesn't say what kind of camera or the condition:
Save £100 when you trade in your old camera. Enter promotion code NIKONTRADE100 on the Review & Pay page at the end of checkout.

Terms and conditions
The offer is only available if the customer agrees to dispose of an old camera he or she already owns by entering the promotional code, and bringing their camera to the imaging department next time they visit a John Lewis store.
If the customer wishes to return the product, only the discounted price paid will be refunded and the old camera will not be returned. Also available in John Lewis shops.
Good camera i had the d3200 a while ago it did the job, now i have upgraded to a canon 80d for filming.
Worth noting it’s £359 at curry’s with a code. Those with Eden red corporate discount maybe like me and get better Curry’s discount than Argos that outweighs the difference in price
Does that mean you can choose a VR lens or a non-VR lens? Why would anyone choose a non-VR one?

Is there a reason why you went with an 80D for filming? Seems an odd choice, considering that the camera can only do 1/4 the resolution of similarly-priced cameras from the likes of Sony and Panasonic.
I rang John Lewis - told them about the price on the Amazon website, and NIKON100 code. Done. Collect at your local store.
Just make it clear whether it's VR or Non-VR, and to be honest I don't know the difference, but went VR.

TMI time... I had borrowed a Nikon D3200 before investing and this is a really good successor model, although lighter and missing a few features such as histograms on the screen showing over-exposure.

You shouldn't rely on Photoshop once you've taken pictures though, and read a book and learn how to use it on Manual. You should aim to get the pictures in one go

There is an effects option on this that I am yet to play with that is similar to Instagram.

If in doubt - go to John Lewis and ask a Nikon sales person to show you the model and see if they'll price match in store. The chap showed me loads of features I wouldn't have known about even though I'd been playing with the other model for weeks.
