We use Imatest and DxO Analyzer hardware and software to test cameras for their colour accuracy (colour error) signal to noise ratio (the amount of noise in the images) and dynamic range (their ability to capture detail in very bright and dark areas). We also pick three rival cameras to test them against.
Whether it’s due to in-camera image processing or differences in raw file conversion, the D3400 can’t match the performance of its rivals in this test.
After some slightly mediocre results at lower sensitivities, the D3400 more closely matches the competition at and above ISO 800.
