We’ve found a couple of sweet early holiday camera deals on the Nikon D3500 – one of the very best entry-level DSLRs you can buy right now online. If you're looking for the perfect Christmas present for the budding photographer in your life, you may want to take a serious look at these Nikon D3500 holiday deals. 

We particularly like the two-lens kit we have spotted at B&H, but there is a less expensive body-only offer we have uncovered too - if that suits your budget better.

The D3500 is a refreshed version of Nikon’s ever-popular Nikon D3400. It delivers ultra-sharp photos and videos, and faster continuous shooting than its rival, the Canon EOS 750D/Rebel T6i. And it’s perfect for beginners, offering a lightweight, responsive and extremely easy-to-use way into DSLR photography.
