Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Nikon D3400, which was introduced in August 2016 is a Entry-Level DSLR camera with a 24.0MP APS-C sensor whereas Fujifilm X-T2, which was introduced in July 2016 is a Advanced Mirrorless camera with a 24.0MP APS-C sensor. There is only 1 months difference between D3400 and X-T2 so we are expecting this to be a fair comparison regarding age and technology level.
Despite some fundamental differences of these two body types, Mirrorless cameras are becoming serious alternatives to DSLR cameras thanks to their size/weight advantages and recent improvements in their focus speeds , which makes this comparison even more interesting.
Here is a brief look at the main features of Nikon D3400 and Fujifilm X-T2 before getting into our more detailed comparison.
Let's read on the following sections in order to better understand in detail how Nikon D3400 and Fujifilm X-T2 compares and hopefully end up with enough arguments to decide which one is better for you.
