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 Samsung NX300M, which was introduced in January 2013 is a Entry-Level Mirrorless camera with a 20.0MP APS-C sensor. As you can see, NX300M is 3 years older than D3400. Let's see if this age difference between two cameras makes a big difference.
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 Samsung NX300M 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 Samsung NX300M compares and hopefully end up with enough arguments to decide which one is better for you.
