Black Friday deals are usually reserved for older generation cameras as retailers look to clear stock, but Nikon’s D3500 is its brand spanking new entry-level model and was only announced at the end of August 2018. It features a 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor and comes with Nikon’s latest kit lens, the AF-P DX 18-55mm VR, which costs £179 on its own, making this a brilliant bundle.

If you’re looking to upgrade from your smartphone camera, or buy a Christmas present for someone who wants to expand their photographic horizons beyond ‘auto’, then there’s unlikely to be a better buy than this during Black Friday.

We’re in the process of reviewing the Nikon D3500, but so far it’s looking like a very good upgrade to the two-year-old D3400. That model was our favourite entry-level DSLR and the D3500 is slightly thinner and lighter, has a new deeper grip to improve its handling, and a longer battery life of 1,550 shots per charge. With Canon’s equivalent 2000D a slight disappointment, it’s likely to retain its title as the best beginner DSLR you can buy.

This is by far the cheapest the D3500 has been in its three-month life so far.

In our review of the D3400, we praised its image quality, saying: “Despite the D3400 being an ‘entry-level’ camera, it produced some excellent images. Colours were vibrant, without going too far into being unrealistic, with a pleasing amount of warmth under a variety of different shooting conditions.

“Detail was great, too, perhaps in no small part down to the fact that the camera’s sensor didn’t have an anti-aliasing filter getting in the way of detail resolution.”
